TikTok model films men ‘checking out her booty’ on the down low

TikTok model Alexas Morgan filmed men checking out her backside by placing her phone in her back pocket and pressing record.

“I’m going to see how many stares my booty gets,” she said in a compilation video showing several men turning around to gape in her direction.

Morgan filmed herself going about her day in a grocery store and what appears to be a sports bar.

Metro reported that the 24-year-old model was following a TikTok video trend of capturing candid reactions as you go about your day.

The TikToker also published the video to her Instagram earlier this week, where it has since clocked more than 120,000 likes.

She slipped her phone into the back pocket of her jeans to catch the hilarious reactions.

Morgan edited the video to do voice-overs on the guys she caught staring at her.

That included some who gawked with their mouths open, and another who knelt on the ground to get a better view.

“Which reaction was your fav?” the model wrote on Instagram.

Fans loved the video, with many praising a man sitting at a bar in a black hat, who just grinned approvingly as Morgan made her way past.

Morgan, a Miami-based model, has more than four million followers on Instagram.

Two men convicted in 2017 Hinsdale jewelry store robbery

Two Illinois men stole more than $200,000 in merchandise from a Hinsdale jewelry store in 2017, a federal jury decided this week.

According to the office of U.S. Attorney John Lausch, Jr., 26-year-old Tobias Diggs and 31-year-old Joshua McClellan were convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, transportation of stolen goods and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

A federal judge has not yet scheduled a date to determine their sentences.

Authorities said two other people participated in the robbery. A warrant has been issued for a 42-year-old man from Chicago, who is considered a fugitive, and the fourth person has not been identified.

Lausch’s office said evidence presented during the six-day trial showed Diggs pointed a gun at a woman who was working at Razny Jewelers during the robbery. Diggs also hit the woman with the weapon and dragged her by her hair to a back room, prosecutors said.

Diggs and two others then entered the store’s safe and took the jewelry.

Lausch’s office said evidence at trial showed McClellan drove the group away from the store. Prosecutors also said the men tried to sell some of the stolen items in the Chicago area and in Atlanta.

Gender equality will hurt some men, but that’s the only way to get there

  • A new report by the Pew Research Center shows 25% of men believe increased equality for women will come at their expense.
  • They’re exactly right, and that’s the point.
  • In order to equalize centuries of oppression of women, men will have to stop benefiting in life just for being men.
  • Ashley Jordan is a feminist writer, speaker, activist, and organizer.
  • This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author.

A new report by the Pew Research Center shows that one in four American men believe increased equality for women has come at their expense. My initial reaction to these survey results is frustration and a compulsive urge to convince these men that gender equality is not a zero-sum game. But I can’t. Because the truth is that gender equality does hurt white, cisgender-men in some ways. The real question is: so what? 

From the economy to public health, we all stand to gain when women win. And while wins for women means that mostly white, cis-men will lose more often, this isn’t an injustice — it’s what justice actually looks like. It might be difficult to discern at first because for white, cis-men in America, the loss of privilege will hurt. But don’t mistake a loss of privilege for unfairness. Men aren’t being punished for women’s equality — they’re just no longer benefiting as much from the lack thereof. 

More women in Congress, in C-suites at Fortune 500 companies, as university presidents, and as partners in top law firms means fewer opportunities for men — that’s just math. After all, there are only 535 seats in the US Congress and 500 of those CEO spots to go around.

Gender equality requires that more women occupy positions of power and authority in our culture and society — positions currently held predominantly by white, cis-men. If women are going to continue making progress, some men will inevitably have to move or be moved out of the way.

The US is struggling with equality

Male privilege means men benefit just by being men. They enjoy certain rights and advantages by virtue of the fact that they are the preferred sex in our patriarchal culture.

As women claw their way ever closer to full equality in the United States (a feat projected to take roughly another 208 years) and slowly chip away at the social capital men procure through privilege, will it be harder out there for a white, cis-man? Yes, of course, it will. Gender equality will make life less privileged and opportunity-rich for white, cis-men in America. But even at its hardest, it still won’t be as hard as life for American women right now. 

In 2018, the United States was the only Western nation ranked among the most dangerous countries for women in a Reuters survey of top women’s rights experts. Although the presence of the US alongside countries considered the worst in the world for human rights atrocities against

Women Tend to Vote for Democratic Presidential Candidates More Than Men Do. Here’s How That Gender Gap First Came to Be

As the electoral odds facing President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden have continued to diverge in national and state polls, there’s at least one area where the divergence has been particularly striking: By early October, one national poll had Biden leading Trump by over 20 points among registered female voters; Trump and Biden were tied among likely male voters. Other October polls had Biden up an average of 25 points among women—which, if it holds, would be a record in modern elections.

Nationally, women in the U.S. have had the vote for 100 years. For the last 40 of those years, they have voted for the Democratic presidential candidate in greater numbers than men have. (Notably, this does not mean a majority of women always vote for the Democrat.) This remarkably durable voting pattern may not be a surprise this year, but it shook Republicans when it emerged in 1980—and examining the two parties’ responses to this voting pattern can help us understand the shape of American politics today.

It took 60 years for women to vote in the same proportion as men. In 1980, for the first time since the passage of the 19th Amendment, women voted at the same rate as men. That was also the first time they voted noticeably differently from men. Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter by almost 10 percentage points in the 1980 presidential election. Among women voters, however, Reagan won by only a single percentage point (46% of the vote, compared to Carter’s 45%). Democrats immediately moved to claim the gender gap for political mileage even as Reagan’s supporters struggled to understand what had happened.

Some relatively obvious things had changed for the Republican Party in 1980. The party removed support for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) from its platform that year, after 40 years of relatively consistent support. Further, for the first time since Roe v. Wade was decided, there was a clear divide between the candidates on support for abortion rights, as Reagan was on the record supporting a constitutional amendment banning them. Interestingly, however, it was not at all clear these issues were driving the new gap in voting. Reagan’s own pollsters pointed out that a majority of both men and women supported the ERA and reproductive rights, but they still diverged in support for Reagan. What then was driving the gap?

In 1982, Democrats picked up 26 seats in the House of Representatives. Political analysts attributed this loss to the GOP’s continuing failure to win over women voters. A few days later, Reagan pollster Ronald Hinckley presented the administration with a memo analyzing the new voting pattern. The memo argued that Republicans’ biggest problem

Phoebe Bridgers Shares How Men Can Help the Women in Their Lives

From Men’s Health

Singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers has managed to make a major name for herself in the music industry—but the 26-year-old may have truly bossed up when she created her own record label, Saddest Factory Records, earlier this year.

Bridgers recently spoke with Men’s Health Deputy Editor Spencer Dukoff to discuss her experience in the entertainment industry, strategies for managing her mental health, and the pros and cons of starting your own business amid a global pandemic. (NBD.)

Saddest Factory Records, Bridgers said, was born out of her desire to self-release her own music early in her career. “I just thought, well, why don’t I just run a label that’s basically me telling these people who to sign, and what to put out, and what to listen to?”

Now, and through her label, Bridgers said she hopes to sign artists with one basic requirement: they make damn good music. “Instead of trying to think about the mathematics of somebody’s art, like the demographics, just [think about] lyrics, honestly,” she said. “And I think so many bands fall into that category.”

Diversity is key to her label’s roster, too, given an overwhelmingly white, male-dominated music industry. Saddest Factory’s first signing is Claud, a 21-year-old non-binary indie pop artist based in Brooklyn who released the single “Gold” earlier this month.

“A lot of times you see tokenism, whether it’s women or people of color, being pushed out onto the stage and everyone behind them is like an older white man,” she explained. “So, I think it’s about hiring people who have a unique human experience because it’s just a better business model. It’s not just for clout.”

Bridgers went on to explain how men can better support women in their lives, both professionally and in general; basic human empathy, she said, can go a long way. “Men, kind of inherently, are born with this ‘I see myself represented everywhere and I can do anything’…Thinking about how you can treat someone who isn’t like that, talking to people like you’re equal [is important].”

As if starting a small business wasn’t enough, Bridgers has also been busy lending her support to small local venues impacted by the pandemic by playing livestreamed benefit concerts. Meanwhile, for her mental health, she says she’s begun incorporating EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy into her mental health routine. She also recommended reading the book The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, which deals trauma and healing.

Two men convicted in Hinsdale jewelry store heist

Two men have been convicted of federal charges in connection to a Hinsdale jewelry store heist that netted more than $200,000 in stolen merchandise.

Tobias Diggs of Chicago and Joshua McClellan of Oak Lawn were armed and masked when they allegedly stole several luxury brand watches from Razny Jewelers, 37 S. Washington St. in the western suburb, according to federal prosecutors in Chicago.

On March 17, 2017, McClellan allegedly drove the getaway car — a Lexus SUV — while Diggs and two others entered the store and pointed a gun at a female employee, prosecutors said. After one of them tackled a store security guard, Diggs hit the female employee with the gun and dragged her by her hair to a back room, while he and the others gained accessed to the store’s safe and stole the jewelry, prosecutors said.

They were convicted Thursday after a six-day trial on all counts against them, including conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, transportation of stolen goods and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, prosecutors said.

Diggs and McClellan were initially indicted in 2018 after allegedly selling or disposing of some of the stolen jewelry in the Chicago area and Atlanta, Georgia.

Two other men participated in the robbery, but haven’t been convicted, prosecutors said. Marvon Hamberlin, 42, of Chicago, was also indicted but remains a fugitive. A fourth person hasn’t been identified.

The firearm charge carries a maximum life sentence. The conspiracy and robbery counts each carry maximum sentences of 20 years in prison, while the transportation of stolen goods charge is punishable by up to 10 years.

The day of the robbery, McClellan drove a Lexus sport-utility vehicle as a getaway car while Diggs and the others went into the store and pointed the gun at a female employee, the news release said. The unidentified person tackled the store security guard, officials said. Diggs struck the employee with a gun and dragged her by her hair to a back room while he and the others opened the safe and took the merchandise, the release said.

The men took designer watches by brands Frederique Constant, Patek Phillipe and Tudor, officials said. Diggs and McClellan later sold, tried to sell or disposed of the merchandise in Chicago and Atlanta.

The trial lasted six days, officials said, and the two men were convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, transportation of stolen goods and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. Their sentencing dates were not set, officials said.

Officials said the conspiracy and robbery counts each carry maximum 20-year sentences, while transportation of stolen goods carries up to 10 years. The firearm conviction could mean seven years to life in prison, and that sentence would be imposed after the other prison terms have been served.

Men Convicted In Violent Hinsdale Jewelry Store Robbery: Feds

HINSDALE, IL — A federal jury Thursday convicted two men who robbed a Hinsdale jewelry store, attacking employees and making off with $200,000 in merchandise, according to federal prosecutors.

Convicted were Tobias Diggs, 26, of Chicago, and Joshua McClellan, 31, of Oak Lawn. They were accused of stealing watches at Razny Jewelers, 37 S. Washington St., including luxury brands such as Frederique Constant, Patek Phillipe and Tudor. They later sold, tried to sell or dispose of the stolen items in the Chicago area and Atlanta.

On the day of the heist, McClellan drove the getaway car — a Lexus SUV — while Diggs and others entered the store and pointed the gun at a female employee, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

After the unidentified suspect tackled a store security guard, Diggs hit the female employee with the gun and dragged her by her hair to a back room, while he and others gained access to the store’s safe and stole the jewelry, prosecutors said.

After a six-day trial in federal court in Chicago, Diggs and McClellan were convicted of all counts against them, including conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, transportation of stolen goods, and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The firearm conviction carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, as well as a minimum term of imprisonment of seven years, which must be served consecutively to the sentences imposed for the conspiracy, robbery, and transportation of stolen goods convictions, a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release said.

2 Milwaukee women charged with drugging men in River North bars and robbing them, netting $85,000 in cash and valuables

Two Milwaukee women, an expectant mother and a 32-year-old phlebotomist, are accused of drugging 10 men who were partying in River North and then robbing them after they fell unconscious — netting $85,000 in cash, phones and jewelry.

Tiana Trammel, 25, and Tjwana Rainey, 32, ran the scheme from late January until last Sunday, authorities told a Cook County judge on Tuesday.

The two would lead drunken men from the bars and nightclubs of River North, often with an invitation to go back to their place, and then give them a drink from a small glass vial, prosecutors said during a bail hearing.

After downing the drink, the men would black out and later awake either in their own homes or by the side of the road, unharmed but missing their wallets and valuables, prosecutors said.

“We had one victim that awoke at the Lake Forest oasis,” Assistant State’s Attorney Paul Kiefer told Judge Charles Beach II during the hearing broadcast on YouTube.

The women used the stolen credit and debit cards at ATMs at Walmart and Target stores in the Milwaukee area where they live, Kiefer said.

The women were arrested early Sunday in River North after carrying a man from a downtown club to Trammell’s car, authorities said. Both were already on law enforcement’s radar by this time and a tracker had been placed on Trammell’s vehicle.

“The last couple of victims we have in the case, obviously the tracker aligns with what happened to those victims,” he said. Kiefer added that authorities also have surveillance video and license plate readers that captured Trammell’s movements.

Police recovered vials of suspected alcohol that are being analyzed to see what chemicals were used on the men, authorities said.

Trammel and Rainey, who appeared separately before the judge, each face charges of continuing a financial criminal enterprise and possession of a controlled substance.

Neither woman had a significant criminal history and both are mothers of young children, according to their attorneys. But Beach said drugging a person without their knowledge or consent was “an act of violence,” and set bail at $55,000 for Trammell and $45,000 for Rainey. Both are barred from having contact with the victims, and Trammell was barred from returning to Wisconsin during the case.

The criminal tradition of robbing bar hoppers by knocking them out with tainted drinks has its supposed origins in late 19th-century Chicago, where the legendary saloon owner Mickey Finn gave customers laced drinks, stealing money and sometimes clothing.

In recent years, the focus has been on protecting against “date rape” drugs put into cocktails in order to leave people vulnerable to sexual assault.
