Pulitzer-prize winning author Alice Walker criticised for endorsing 'anti-Semitic' book
Walker included David Icke's And the Truth Shall Set You Free, in which he claims 'alternative information' about the Holocaust is being suppressed, in a list of books currently on her nightstand
    She did not endorse it, she had it or her night stand to read it.     Do we have thought police to tell us what we can and can't read?    What would be the reason for not reading it?  That reading things she does not agree with would damage her soul?

Disney accused of colonialism over 'hakuna matata' trademark
Petition urges company to drop trademark on Swahili phrase before summer release of Lion King remake.
 I see a major problem with somebody registering " no problem" as a trademark.   I don't see any colonialism, except in the people reacting, but allowing this to be registered as a trademark is just stupid and should be above the power of any court.  It's like registering "good morning" as a trademark.

Swedish women-only music festival found guilty of discrimination
The Statement festival was found in breach of gender discrimination law but will not be penalised
 If men want a festival (or a bar or  a sports club) as “a safe space for the people who want to attend without feeling scared for their personal safety”, and have it remain a protected space “until ALL women learn how to behave themselves,” I have no doubt that the lawsuits would be flying.

The next 100 days will define Brexit – it will be our job to find clarity in the mess
Good luck with that, especially when Britain does not know what it wants from Brexit.

Labour Denies Jeremy Corbyn Called Theresa May A 'Stupid Woman' During PMQs
Stupid woman is NOT mysogynistic. It is a descriptor of someone who is stupid and a woman. 
Is "stupid man" mysandrous? If it is not, then the people who say "stupid woman" is misogyinst are being sexist in the extreme.
