A generation of men have given up on higher ed

WELCOME TO THE NEW AMERICA

Men are abandoning higher education in such numbers that they now trail female college students by record levels… In the next few years, two women will earn a college degree for every man, if the trend continues…”

Men are the second-class citizens now, the undesirables. From manspreading to toxic masculinity, everything male is verboten. Is it any wonder that men would rather do something else than be lectured to and demonized every damn day?

I wrote about this on my other blog yesterday. I understand. I am one of them. I have given up on that dream, too.

Once I thought about getting a PhD and teaching history. I never got close to achieving it. That seems like a few lifetimes ago.

Abortion in Europe

EUROPE IS MUCH
MORE
CONSERVATIVE
THAN PEOPLE THINK

Abortion laws in European countries are often
more restrictive than those in the United States
.

Andorra, Malta and San Marino do not allow abortion at all. Monaco and Liechtenstein allow it only when a woman’s health or life is at risk.

Fifteen European countries, including Italy and Spain, require a mandatory waiting period. In 12 countries, including Hungary and Germany, women must undergo mandatory counselling or receive mandatory information from their doctors before the abortion.

In Germany, abortion can only be done within 12 weeks of conception.

Centuries-old cemetery defaults to Michigan township after owner cannot be found

ATLAS TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN — Tucked behind a row of residential properties and Atlas Township’s only historical church is a small, family cemetery that houses the remains of Sally Hebbard, a direct descendant of a military leader on the Mayflower, and Norman Davison, a War of 1812 veteran who served as a part of Michigan’s earliest government.

Formerly known as Atlas Cemetery, Davison originally intended the land to be used as “common grounds,” or public parks and spaces, according to local historian Dawn Bastian.

After his daughter died, he split the property up to make a private cemetery for family and friends.

The property is now the location of some of Michigan’s last standing oak slab headstones, which have been reset multiple times due to wear and tear.

Davison eventually gave the property to his son, Paul Davison, who is recorded as the last known owner of the cemetery.

Paul Davison later moved south and likely never passed on the deed to the property, leaving it unkept and isolated for nearly a century.

Many locals and Atlas Township government officials assumed the private cemetery was kept and cared for by the church that sits in front of it.

When the church changed hands over the years, some would prioritize taking care of the property and others would let it sit.

“I think it is important to respect the people that came before us. They made us who we are today.”
