Dr. Claudia Cornell on the emotional abuse of men by women

March 26, 2010 · Posted in Commentary · 2 Comments 

Claudia CornellIf you search the web, you will find few web sites that deal with the emotional abuse of men by women.  Most sites that deal with this subject tend to be a bit on the misogynistic side.  As a man, I don’t want to be painted with the same brush as men who abuse women, so it’s not fair to paint all women as emotionally abusive.

In my search, I did find one web site that presented an intelligent, balanced view of the subject.  WomenAbusingMen.org was founded by Dr. Claudia B. Cornell and Kimberly C. Taylor.

While I found WomenAbusingMen.org to be quite intriguing, I wanted to learn more on the subject of emotional abuse of men by women.  I sent an email with a comprehensive list of interview questions.  Fortunately, I received a prompt response from Dr. Cornell expressing a great willlingness to answer my questions in the hope of spreading awareness on the emotional abuse of men by women.

Let me just start by saying that I have never tried K-Y Intense Arousal Gel, but the reviews on Amazon are terrible.  I was in Walgreens one day and I decided to wander around while I was there shopping.  I noticed the high price on K-Y Intense Arousal Gel as I walked by it.  Without going into graphic detail, K-Y Intense Arousal Gel is supposed to be used on the very most sensitive area of the female anatomy to help facilitate an orgasm.  Read more

Soda fountains contain fecal contamination, other bacteria

January 11, 2010 · Posted in Commentary · Comment 

A study published in the January issue of International Journal of Food Microbiology found coliform bacteria, possibly from fecal contamination, in 48% of the soda fountains tested.  More than 11% of the beverages analyzed contained E-coli and over 17% contained Chryseobacterium meningosepticum, among other bacteria.  Most of the bacteria found in the tests showed resistance to one or more of the 11 antibiotics tested.  The study concluded that “these findings have important public health implications and signal the need for regulations enforcing hygienic practices associated with these beverage dispensers.” Read more
