UC Riverside prof calls heterosexual relationships ‘tragic,’ bad for women

According to a California professor, the very bond that prolongs the human race is “tragic,” “a tragedy,” and bad for women.

University of Riverside professor Jane Ward spoke to Insider about her research for a new book, “The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.”

“It really looks like straight men and women don’t like each other very much, that women spend so much time complaining about men, and we still have so much evidence of misogyny,” Ward said according to Insider. “From an LGBT perspective, [being straight] looks actually very tragic.”

Ward discusses the pandemic and the uptick in divorce and studies showing less satisfaction in sexual relationships as proof that straight relationships are bad.

“I think in some ways the pandemic is revealing the tragedy of heterosexuality to people who might not have otherwise paid attention to it,” Ward said.

Insider reports that she has studied these topics for years and analyzes the ways that straight relationships hold both women and men back.

She claims to feel sorry for men who are stuck in a toxic masculinity culture that teaches a need for women and pressures men to treat their partners poorly.

One homosexual interviewee for the professor’s book discussed feeling sorry for straight women.

“I really sympathize with these women, but at the same time it makes me feel alienated from them,” the interviewee told Ward. “Our lives become so different when theirs revolves around attachment to a cruel, insensitive, self-centered, or simply boring man.”

Interestingly, science suggests that 100% of babies result from a man and woman— meaning our entire existence as a species relies on this natural, but apparently “tragic,” relationship.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
