What forms of sexism do men face that women don't?

Men live in fear of rape accusations.I have yet to find a similarly severe threat women are facing.Edit: I realize I didn't articulate clearly enough. What I mean is that while women face the threat of actual rape, men face false rape accusation in addition to rape.Some feminists argue that it is not discrimination at all, but only men's overreaction — especially compared with the way women were oppressed and threatened over the past thousands of years.However, this is discrimination — men are discriminated in criminal justice. Fear of false rape accusation is the consequence of overly relying on the victim’s testimony.While women fear for being sexually assaulted at workplace, at parties and on the way back home, men fear for losing everything.False rape accusation means losing everything in life.The fear is no joke. It is well founded. The chance of being accused may be slight, but once it hits an innocent man, it is his entire life that is ruined.In 1991, a disheveled and tearful woman told police officers in Harlem that she had been kidnapped at knife point and raped by three black men, one of whom she identified as Gregory Count, then a 19-year-old.Gregory was charged with rape, sodomy, kidnapping and illegal possession of a weapon. In the following year, a jury convicted Gregory on all counts except for the weapon charges.Gregory served 11 years of his 26-year-long sentence. He was exonerated in 2015 after DNA examination was conducted. Had DNA profiling never invented, his innocence would never have been proved.Semen recovered from the woman did not match his. The prosecutors admitted that they relied too heavily on the woman's testimony. As the investigator showed the woman DNA report, she finally confessed that the rape accusation was fabricated.Upon release, Gregory said that this wrongful conviction destroyed his life. He struggled to find employment because of his criminal record.In the summer of 2002, Brian Banks was a 6'4″ promising high school athlete and a popular football star who had been offered admission to USC, UCLA and a number of other prestigious colleges.Like many high school students, Brian Banks fooled around with his date Wanetta Gibson for a while, but he always believed that their sexual encounters were consensual.However, Wanetta told her friend otherwise, “he picked me up and put me in the elevator and he took me downstairs and he pulled my pants down and he raped me and he didn't have an condom on and I was a virgin now I’m not.” [1] This was also the story she gave during the preliminary hearing when bombarded with rigorous questioning.After the hearing, Brian was given two options — either take the case to trial or accept the plea deal. If tried and convicted, Brian would face at least 40 years in prison. The risk for trial is too high, especially for a black teenager facing an all-white jury. He chose to take the plea, stay in prison for five years and registry as a sex offender for life.His mother sold her condo and car to pay for Brian's attorney fees. “I knew I didn't raise my son to do something so horrendous.”While Brian was serving his sentence in prison, Wanetta sued their high school and settled for $1.5 million. As she learned about Brian's release, Wannetta sent him a request on Facebook and asked if they could meet. Brian agreed. At the meeting she wanted to make amends for making him lose out on college. She told him that she had to fabricate the story so that her mother wouldn't find out that she had been sexually active.Brian secretly recorded the conversation and sought out the California Innocence Project for help. They took up a case from a released person for the first time and discovered sufficient evidence to back up Brian’s innocence. First, no male DNA had been detected on Wanneta’s underwear. Second, Wanetta told her friend that the reason she framed Brian was to prevent her mother from finding out she wasn't a virgin.At first, Wanetta refused to admit that she had lied, so that she wouldn't have to pay back the money she had won in court. She was also concerned with the relationship with her children after the truth was made known.Eventually Brian's name was cleared, yet the prosecutors made no plans to charge Wanetta, as it would be a difficult case to prove. The only punishment for her was to pay $2.6 million judgment in connection to the case.Frankly; among all the people who have been falsely accused, Brian Banks ends up with probably the best possible result. While he lost the chance for a fully-funded college education and five years of learning and growing outside the brick walls and iron bars, yet today he has a decent job in National Football League, regained public trust and got married (although got divorced in 2017). Brian proves that he still has what it takes to earn enough money to shed the pain of all the deprived years.In 2015, Liam Alan, a student of criminology, was arrested by police officers right after he was back from playing football. To his great astonishment, he was accused of rape by his ex-girlfriend, who reported to the police that Liam forced her hands behind her back, tied her to a bedpost and held a pillow over her face while having sex, all against her will.Accused of 12 counts of rape based on the allegation, Liam lived through the following two years in absolute nightmare.Before the allegation, he had confided in his mother that he was afraid of turning the relationship sexual as his ex-girlfriend was still a virgin. The relationship lasted 18 months, during which Liam didn't see any indication that she was distressed or uncomfortable.Eventually they broke up and Liam moved on with life. But his ex-girlfriend, born in a difficult family, was upset about the breakup.The case went to trial. His ex-girlfriend was unable to present, so she testified against him behind a screen. However, thankfully his attorney discovered the crucial evidence that would eventually let the charges drop. His ex-girlfriend had sent her friend a text “it wasn't against my will or anything.” More texts about his ex-girlfriend discussing rape fantasies and desires were found.Had Liam been convicted, he’d have to spend years behind bars and been permanently inscribed as a sex offender. In what seemed a he said-she said case, his prospects were dicey.In February 2018, 24-year-old Welsh guy Curtis Gibbins received a call from the police when he was out with his friends. He was told over the phone that someone had said that Curtis raped them.[2]It was a slight relief that the allegation was retracted. Curtis avoided being arrested, charged or faced any court action. But nightmares didn't end here.Many people, including his best friend of 12 years, estranged from him due to this horrific accusation. He also distanced himself from everyone else as he was too scared to go anywhere by himself and too afraid to be alone with a woman.Before the allegation, Curtis was outgoing and sociable. Now, he's anxious, depressed, irritable and suicidal. He feels that the whole incident pushed him over the edge.One of the most tragic one is 17-year-old Jay Cheshire, a “mature and well-liked” student ambassador at his six form school at Southampton.He was found hanging himself in a nearby park after being accused of rape. Although his accuser withdrew the allegation two weeks after, the withdrawal took place only after Jay was confronted by the police and his name forever tarnished with the smear.The police arrived at the scene where he hanged himself, and found his suicide note. It was indicated that he struggled to cope with the false accusations and police investigations.He was rushed to Southampton General Hospital, where his mother Karin Cheshire made the heart-wrenching decision to switch off his life support two days later. His whole family never got over his suicide. Karin described it as the worst decision a mother could ever make.[3]Karin fell into depression after the death of her son. She was kept in a mental facility for six months. However, unable to see a future without her son, she fooled the doctors into discharging her and then hanged herself several days after Jay's death anniversary. She died of asphyxiation — the same way her son died.She left behind a 22-year-old daughter Camellia Cheshire, who has also been driven to the brink of suicide by the death of her mother and brother. She was left alone to organize two funerals.It was said that the accuser met with Jay before his death and admitted that someone had put pressure on her to make the false rape accusation.Every day, Camellia lives with the urge of confronting the accuser, but hasn't yet because she fears the devastating effect it would have on her own mental health.These are only a handful of anecdotes relating to false rape accusation.However, it's not hard to tell from these anecdotes — false rape accusations are lethal. Today, making false accusations of sexual nature is not yet a criminal offense and accusers will not be punished with the full force of law.Footnotes[1] Wanetta Gibson[2] Man 'falsely accused of rape' says he's 'too afraid' to go anywhere alone[3]

Why is Gov. Newsom responsible for California’s homeless crisis?

WTF? What kind of question is this? The dude has only been in office for 8 months and he is responsible for the homeless crisis? Is he also responsible for the suicide rate, the divorce rate, and the pollution in the Central Valley? Is he responsible for the traffic jams in LA? lists the causes of homelessness…perhaps we can determine how many of these he caused:“31% job loss20% drugs or alcohol use15% divorce or separation13% an argument with a family member who asked them to leave7% domestic violence10% eviction7% mental health7% physical health or medical condition12% incarceration1% housing restrictions due to probation or parole.”Here is a list of solutions to homelessness:“34% employment assistance31% rental assistance28% drug or alcohol counseling19% mental health services”What has the new governor done in his 8 months to remedy the situation which, as you surely know, he inherited and did not cause?He promoted and signed a bill to protect workers, some of whom are homeless: “Other states have adopted rules to extend benefits such as unemployment insurance and workers’ comp to independent contractors. But California’s bill is arguably the strongest in the nation. It gives the state and cities the right to file suit against companies over misclassification, overriding the arbitration agreements that many businesses use to shield themselves from worker complaints.California is likely to set a precedent for others and could offer impetus for similar legislation now pending in Congress. Several Democratic presidential candidates endorsed AB 5.”Here is what he said in an oped about the new law and the ways it will protect workers: misclassified workers “lose basic protections like the minimum wage, paid sick days and health insurance benefits. Employers shirk responsibility for safety net programs like workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance. Taxpayers are left to foot the bill.”Breaking News, World News & MultimediaWhy is this important…are employed people a significant portion of the homeless?“Josh Leopold, a researcher at the Urban Institute, estimated that about 25 percent of the homeless population is employed, while Megan Hustings, director of the National Coalition for the Homeless, told Axios that between 40 and 60 percent of the homeless population floats in and out of full-time and part-time work.” Breaking News, World News & MultimediaWhat has he done in his 8 months about housing for the homeless? He has committed one billion for housing for the homeless (that IS the solution, isn’t it?):“Last week, Newsom signed a package of legislation that, among other things, exempts from environmental review supportive housing and shelter projects in the city of L.A. that receive funding from certain public sources, including the $1.2-billion Proposition HHH housing bond measure that voters approved in 2016.Another new law allows cities in Alameda and Orange counties, in addition to the city of San Jose, to declare a shelter crisis so those local governments can eventually bypass some planning and zoning regulations to expedite construction.”Here is what Bush’s homeless czar said of the Governor’s actions: ““The hard reality is that the governor has already done most of what would be done if a state of emergency was to be called,” said Philip Mangano, the former federal homelessness czar in the George W. Bush and Obama administrations and a member of the governor’s task force. “The governor is the homelessness czar in California and the task force’s job is to give him big ideas to make a difference.” | Explaining California’s policies and politics reports: “Both conservative and liberal housing experts attribute California’s astronomical home prices and rents to a lack of supply. Over the past decade, California has averaged less than 100,000 new homes per year,significantly slower than that of most other states.Newsom set a goal of 3.5 million new housing units to be built by 2025–about 500,000 per year. He outlined a suite of proposals he hoped would make it easier for builders to build: altering the state’s oft-abused environmental-impact law to allow more housing, revamping how local governments get their tax dollars and clamping down on cities that obstruct new construction.”What about drug and alcohol counseling and mental health services? Newsome has promoted a healthcare for all system, which would address addiction and mental health issues for ALL: “A sweeping package of laws moving California well along toward universal healthcare has advanced steadily through the Legislature during the spring and summer. Backers claim these measures will reduce healthcare prices and improve quality,Among other measures seemingly sure to pass during this session are bills to expand Medi-Cal (the California form of federal Medicaid) to almost all Californians….”, let’s tally up the score:Newsome, in office now 8 months, is responsible for none of the homelessness which he inherited.And he has addressed every aspect of the solutions, from healthcare to housing, with a boldness unprecedented.So why is he responsible for homelessness…? Let us rephrase the question: What is he doing to remedy the homeless problem he inherited. He is not responsible for causing the problem but he has taken responsiblity for solving it and in a very short time he has promoted and seen significant legislation passed and promoted other solutions which are moving through the legislative process.So here is the corrected question: Why is the Governor responsible for solving the homelessness issue? And the answer is because he has taken it on himself both while campaigning and in his short tenure in office, to ACT on this committment.
