    WINNSBORO, La. (AP) — Forensic evidence indicates that a 20-year woman suffering from extensive burns set herself on fire then invented a story about being doused in flammable liquid by three men who she said also wrote the initials KKK and a racial slur on her car, state police said Tuesday.

    On Sunday at 8 p.m., Sharmeka Moffitt called 911 from a walking trail in Winnsboro and told authorities she had been doused in flammable liquid by three men wearing white hoodies. She suffered extensive burns on more than half her body and was taken to LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment.

    Then there was the Duke LAX team.

      Where is Al Sharpton when you need him?

  2. These groups that have NOTHING to complain about, continue to complain…PETA, NAACP, NOW, ATA…and the list goes on…truely amazing, what started out as a true cause, has now become a cancer

      Hey, I am a proud member of PETA (People for Eating Tasty Animals), and our cause has never been more important! Did you know that every year there are thousands of baby cows that are not eaten?!

      Since these things do not translate well, let it be noted my above comment was a jest all in good fun. Although I do enjoy eating tasty animals.

  3. Was that supposed ro read, “Graduates with a Paid PAP?”

  4. My daughter is an engineer and utterly refuses to have anything to do with these so called “feminist” (socialist) fools. She believes what the left, and the feminist movement by association do not, and that is that one should be judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, or sex, or sexuality, etcetera. She is not, and refuses to be a victim, and looks upon these pathetic boobs (heh) with the disgust that they deserve.

  5. You can’t measure your pet causal variable, so you just hang its name (“sex discrimination”) on the unexplained variance. OK, I think I’ll call it “Timmy” instead.

    Problem is, many or most of your explanatory variables (often from self-reports) contain a lot of measurement error — random, systematic, and everything in between. And measurement error reduces correlations and creates unexplained variance.

    Until somebody demonstrates otherwise, I’ll assume “Timmy,” like “sex discrimination,” is just another name for measurement error.

    One of the big factors is that many women graduate with degreesl that have little value such as literature, no value at all such as sociology or negative value such as women’s studies.

  7. There’s actually as many as 25 factors that have nothing to do with employer discrimination that lead to women having lower average salaries than men. They are documented in the book “Why Men Earn More” by former NOW member Warren Farrell.

    Another good resource on this issue is “Every Feminist’s Nightmare” by Thomas DiLorenzo.

    Such a joy to listen to/read Ms. Hoff-Sommers. Thanks for your work.

    More ideologically biased pseudo-science from camp misandry.

    This “femresearch” is as credible as Pat Robertson conducting a study on Evolution.
