Bad Romance Women's Suffrage

ABC News interview with Miles Taylor:

Female-led countries handled coronavirus better, study suggests

Countries led by women had “systematically and significantly better” Covid-19 outcomes, research appears to show, locking down earlier and suffering half as many deaths on average as those led by men.

The relative early success of leaders such as Germany’s Angela Merkel, New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, Denmark’s Mette Frederiksen, Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen and Finland’s Sanna Marin has so far attracted many headlines but little academic attention.

The analysis of 194 countries, published by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the World Economic Forum, suggests the difference is real and “may be explained by the proactive and coordinated policy responses” adopted by female leaders.

Even after clear and frequently cited outliers such as New Zealand and Germany – and the US for male leaders – were removed from the statistics, the study found, the case for the relative success of female leaders was only strengthened.

“Our results clearly indicate that women leaders reacted more quickly and decisively in the face of potential fatalities,” said Supriya Garikipati, a developmental economist at Liverpool University, co-author with Reading University’s Uma Kambhampati.

“In almost all cases, they locked down earlier than male leaders in similar circumstances. While this may have longer-term economic implications, it has certainly helped these countries to save lives, as evidenced by the significantly lower number of deaths in these countries.”


WTF: ... he recounted a conversation he had with God where he said, "OK ... you got me."

There was a moment in his speech a few minutes ago where Trump jokingly suggested the pandemic was God "testing" him for being too prideful about the economy. As part of the bit, he recounted a conversation he had with God where he said, "OK ... you got me."


Good lord now he has Multiple Personality Disorder. May he'll develop one that arrests himself

Meidas Touch: Divorce Trump


Catching Up with Claudia Conway, Whose Teen Rebellion Is Trolling Her Mom

It is Monday morning, August 17, and Claudia Conway is already going through it, in the best way. The teen daughter of Kellyanne Conway—counselor to and liar for President Trump—has long made a name for herself as a living breathing anti-Trump troll thanks to her TikToks shitting on the president and her mom’s shitty job.

Somehow, her parents haven’t managed to nuke her entire social media presence, though it isn’t for a lack of trying. Claudia is in good company, however: the daughters of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are pissed off by their father’s politics too. They should link up.

Anyway, when she’s not being a brilliant TikTok goon, she’s lightly antagonizing her mother on another platform: Twitter.

Again, it’s barely 11 a.m. and Claudia is already dunking on her mom and is ready to be adopted by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:


Oh, my!


"Henry Joe, you are already the best bro, and my very best friend, so will you please say yes and...


Do you think that people in jail/prison should be afforded basic protection against abuse/violence?

No matter what their crime is? I do.

I find it strange that some people like/support the whole retribution aspect of people behind bars attacking and abusing other people behind bars. It is gross, really.
