Feminism, Antimasculinism
and Gender-based Affirmative Action

Background, overview and recap articles:

New Canadian study suggests that women who scream the loudest about 'climate change' don't actually care all that much.  What do we know about leftist women?  They angrily demand that we "believe all women" as they ignore cries of little girls traded back and forth across the border for sex, and silence those harmed by powerful Democrats like Juanita Broaddrick and Tara Reade.  They hysterically scream "my body, my choice" and "no uterus, no opinion" but then fail to explain how at certain points in a woman's life she can have somebody else's DNA inside her womb, or arms and legs growing inside her abdomen — seems like a medical anomaly if it's really just her body — and assert that people without uteruses (men) can have an opinion on female issues, just as long as it's a pro-abortion one, or if these men simply "identify" as a woman, then they too can be one, and their opinion counts... just as long as it's not politically conservative or libertarian.  They contend that the traditional family unit and marriage are patriarchal systems of oppression that abuse women, treat them as chattel, and eliminate any sense of fulfillment, but find a cubicle under the thumb of a domineering male boss to be a more "liberating" and going home to cats, a bottle of wine, and a sex toy a happy state of existence.  They screech about the "gender-pay gap" and the need for "equal" treatment but then cry foul when they're held to the same standards as men.

Put a Chick in it and Make Her Gay.  And Lame.  [Scroll down]  The sight of Reese Witherspoon peeking terrified around a corner in their version of J6 (Nazis!!) infuriated me.  Because it's news I'm invested, and [...] are these women ridiculous.  Jennifer Aniston pretending to have intellectual substance is laughable.  She plays intelligence as resentment.  The cast is stocked with people of color, and they know better, have better instincts about everything.  This is the extent of the analysis of the "writers".  And every single member of the cast is stuffed up to the nose holes with self-righteousness.  I want to slap them.  Then send them back to school with a reading list.  I wouldn't care except our entire culture lies in the hands of these women.  The pretty boys stood up as "leaders" are elected by them.  Trudeau, Rishi, Macron, Obama were made in a lab to appeal to women who call themselves "feminists".  Most of them — remember Obama's cradle-to grave Julia? — are childless, and/or without a partner; the rest terrorize their families into quiescence.  Honey, all the battles have been won and were won thirty years ago — you are just cosplaying actual feminists who opened the professions for women.  I mean there is even a spacewalk team that is women.  They dropped their tool box into space, but never mind, they were women.

Feminism: False Advertising at its Finest.  Feminism is one of the most popular modern philosophies that none of its proponents can properly explain.  Even a relatively cursory interaction with feminists reveals this.  Modern feminists don't see that feminism is directly opposed to what most of them already enjoy or are seeking — loving spouses, healthy children, and happy homes.  Women today are being duped into supporting a movement seeking to erase differences between genders, and ultimately destroy traditional families.

The Emasculating Effects of Fatherlessness and Feminism.  The cultural climate in the United States is growing increasingly hostile towards men.  The barbaric behavior of Harvey Weinstein, Larry Nassr, and Bill Cosby has put all males in the proverbial doghouse.  To make matters worse, major news outlets and left-leaning politicians add fuel to the fire by pushing an agenda-driven narrative that masculinity is inherently oppressive, violent, and domineering.  Though it is true that hypermasculinity is problematic, we face a far greater threat at the opposite end of the macho-spectrum.  Ironically, America is experiencing an epidemic of young men who fail to launch — millennials who resist growing up and becoming men.  They are abandoning traditional male behavior in favor of metrosexuality — shoe-shopping, manicures, pedicures, and make-up are becoming the new norm.  We are not making men like we used to; in fact, we are not making them at all.

Leftism: High on Buzzwords, Low on Thought.  What was the original argument behind feminism and sexism?  Both sexes were oppressed by being forced into roles that... blah, blah, blah.  This original argument meant that ending sexism liberated both sexes.  Feminists never really believed in or wanted equality.  That would have meant that men would be given equal standing in child custody cases.  Women would have the same duty to support a household that men had.  Women would not be believed in court simply because a teary-eyed woman evoked more sympathy than an unemotional man.  We were all going to be equal in every sense.  But, to paraphrase Orwell in Animal Farm, the real guiding idea was this:  "Both sexes are equal, but one is more equal than the other."  This showed up early in symbolic changes.  So hurricanes could no longer be named after women, which is also why we speak today of "Father Nature."  (Oh, wait — we don't!)  Every billboard dealing with domestic violence shows a woman, never a man, as the victim.

Gloria Steinem's Rape Cover-Up?  Second wave feminism, edgy, in-your-face, bra-burning feminism reached its crescendo in the late sixties and early seventies.  The Pill hit the market at the same time which immediately opened a brave new world — a world where sex was de-coupled from reproduction.  Almost overnight, marriage and motherhood were deemed to be "below" the aspirations of young girls who were encouraged to pursue careers rather than eligible men.  Gloria Steinem's Ms. magazine was at the forefront of this movement.  Marriage was out, children were out, free love was in, and it was definitely fun while it lasted.  Soon, however, feminism turned to an outright attack on men.

The 6 Big Ways Liberals Are Destroying America's Culture.  [#4] Liberal Feminism:  The original "Women should have the same rights as men" feminism has been so widely accepted in society that it made feminism irrelevant.  So, liberal feminists reinvented feminism as a combination of man-hating and victimization.  Look out, it's the patriarchy and rape culture!  Don't you dare hold the door for me!  Stop mansplaining!  Stop saying, "Not all men!" You just sit there in silence thinking about how you've oppressed women!  Liberal feminism falsely makes women think they could have it all if those awful men weren't getting in their way and it makes many guys unsure of what reaction they'll get from women when they behave like men.  Forget about the old "Women should be women and men should be men" philosophy; liberal feminism is about women being men and the men being shamed.

Why Can't a Woman Be Less Like a Man?  Like all cultural Marxists, the modern feminists have applied the tenets of Critical Theory to the War Between the (Two) Sexes, and have found the male sex wanting in every particular, the force behind every social ill they perceive.  Men are responsible for all that afflicts them: their workplace environment, their chances in the dating pool, their economic fortunes; thanks to their uncontrollable concupiscence, men even burden them with children.  Every masculine trait, therefore, must be ameliorated by medication or surgery, such as rambunctiousness in young boys; every sign of virility, including strength, courage, and the martial spirit must be stamped out in order to "protect" women.

Feminism's Experiment Against Common Sense.  Feminists, while still denying biological difference, assert that women face special dangers in Hollywood and deserved closer protection.  At the same time, they don't want the old protections restored.  And so they look elsewhere for protection, to "systemic change," whatever that means.  They, of course, exclude themselves from this "industry-wide" failure to protect women and continue to dole out bad advice to them while castigating anyone who offers sensible counsel.  In the end, feminism will always prioritize ideology over the protection of women.  Just look at its loud support for "all genders bathrooms," the kind that now exist in in the tony New York City hotels Weinstein patronizes.  Woe to anyone who brings up the risks of that arrangement for women.

The Top 10 Liberal Confusions.  [#1]  Feminism can't decide whether women are superior to men or victims of them.  They can't decide whether they're proud of the physical capabilities of their bodies or so anxious to deny them that they have to kill their babies.  They are vociferously attracted to all the trappings of Sharia in spite of its cruelty to women and young girls.  Many can't even decide if they're women.

Fighting Anti-Male Leftism.  Feminists ignore the fact that women spend most of the money in America, regardless of who sweats in unpleasant jobs to earn that money.  Feminists perversely insist that we ought to devote more money and attention to "women's health" issues, despite the fact that only in the last century, women have moved past men in life expectancy and that women have become, since the end of World War II, a majority of Americans for the first time.  In short, feminism is not about justice, and it is not about equality, and it is not about fairness.  Feminism blindly supports women, whether women are wronged or not.

Timely news and commentary:

Girl Suffering Gender Dysphoria Attempts to Remove [her own] Breasts After Watching YouTube.  A New Zealand teenage girl suffering from gender dysphoria has attempted to conduct a self-mastectomy after watching a tutorial video on YouTube.  The incident was reported in an article published on May 17 in the New Zealand Medical Journal, used as a case study in a bid to push for better access to publicly funded gender transition surgery.  According to the report, an 18-year-old girl with gender dysphoria tried to cut off her breast at home after watching a "how to" video on YouTube, preparing the equipment, and marking the incisions.

Where are all the great feminist leaders now?  What happened to I am Woman, Hear Me Roar?  Why do girls have such contempt for their femininity that they'll do anything to look like a man?

Men are under attack, especially Judeo-Christian ones.  This is no country for old men.  It's no country for young men, either.  And that could be said about the greater Western world.  Men are under attack.  Period.  Especially straight white ones.  Even more so if they happen to be Christians or Jews, as well.  (Anyone who denies this is simply too ridiculous to acknowledge.)  "Toxic masculinity" is considered by progressives to be a major problem.  Men in commercials and advertisements are often made to look like complete ignoramuses.  ("Honey, can you show me how to use the toaster?"  Or, "I was going to make some ice cubes for the party tonight, dear, but I forgot the recipe.")  And it is not just men who are being disparaged, as previously noted.  It is Christians, patriots, pro-lifers, MAGA types, and, of course, Jews.  That's a significant number of groups of which leftists are anything but inclusive or tolerant.

There's No Such Thing As Good Masculine Male Characters In The Woke World Of Book Publishing.  In a world of man buns and declining sperm counts, the last thing we needed was four men gracing this year's red carpet at the Met Gala in flowing gowns.  But like it or not, this is our culture.  So as a conservative author of romantic comedy books, how do I develop likable characters that today's female readers want to root for?  I can do it and believe I have, but have I lost touch with today's mores?  Is there anyone left who still wants to read about two seemingly normal potential lovers caught in funny or interesting scenarios?  My job is to create entertaining plots that don't betray my core values.  Such a task for a conservative author in the romance genre feels as futile as trying to sell a fire extinguisher to an arsonist during a BLM riot.

Every day brings more evidence that it's time to repeal the 19th Amendment.  [Scroll down]  Feminists told women that they were just like men and should sleep around, focus every bit of their energy on corporate culture, and delay childbearing.  But, of course, that doesn't work.  Women get demoralized sleeping around, corporate culture doesn't suit their instincts and leaves them empty and alone in the end, and delayed child-rearing often leaves them infertile.  The reality is that, at the end of the day, your corporation will not end every call with "I love you," will not worry about you when you're sick, will not share joy and sorrows with you, will not present you with grandchildren, and will not worry about or care for you when you're too old to care for yourself.  That's what family does.  A family feeds into and responds to a woman's more openly emotional nature.  Modern young women not only reject these ideas, but they believe that their highest political goal is to keep it legal to kill their babies. [...] [Furthermore,] broken women who have been trained to hate men and fear intimate relationships are still going to yield to their emotional side and look for someone, or something, to support them:  [Tweet]

National Organization for Women deletes social media post about 'white supremacist patriarchy'.  It seems the National Organization for Women's unhinged fanaticism of transgender athletes in women's sports was even too much for the organization's social media team.  The so-called feminist group deleted a controversial post on X from March 31.  It claimed that anyone who objected to biological men who wished to identify as women and compete in sports against real women was "white supremacist patriarchy at work."  "Repeat after us:  Weaponizing womenhood against other women is white supremacist patriarchy at work," the since-deleted post said.  "Making people believe there isn't enough space for trans women in sports is white supremacist patriarchy at work."

Male transvestites are not women.

Republican 'War on Women' Is a Media Myth.  Republicans have been accused of waging a "war on women" for several election cycles now.  But is there any truth to this claim?  Democrats and their supporters in the media are leaning into an election-year fear-mongering campaign about Republican "bans" on reproductive rights.  In their redefinition, any limitation on abortion throughout pregnancy, even in the third trimester, is a "ban."  Even more disingenuous, Democrats have also accused Republicans of threatening birth control and, most recently, IVF.  Welcome to the political silly season.  Both parties have people on their fringes who take extreme positions, but that doesn't make it the party's position or long-term objective.  And both parties have political consultants who know how to misconstrue the intention behind certain pieces of legislation.

How is this not "hate speech?"
'The View' Co-Hosts Launch Into Lengthy Man-Hating Tirade.  "The View" co-hosts jumped into a lengthy man-hating tirade Friday, calling straight ones "useless."  The co-hosts responded to a TikTok trend asking women if they need men, agreeing with the majority who answered "no." They adamantly assured they are not including gay men in their criticism.  "Because men are useless," co-host Ana Navarro said.  "I mean — and by the way, I wanted to differentiate between straight men and gay men because I think I would die without gay men.  No one can gossip like a gay man, no one can help you accessorize like gay men, and nobody can help you from doing harm to yourself like gay men."  She said her husband would be "emaciated, starving and living in his own filth" without her.

The Feminization of the Army.  We may be headed for a significant war shortly, one that will require rapid expansion of our forces.  The Army can only do that through the draft.  Now that women can serve in ground maneuver units, will we draft women?  There needs to be a national discussion on this issue.  When then Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, faced with an impending lawsuit concerning women in combat, signed off on opening combat arms to women, it was a bureaucratic action done without congressional approval or national discourse.  The Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services (DACOWITS) has ramrodded this agenda.  The considerations surrounding this are immensely complex.  While equality and equity are undoubtedly important, so are biological necessities.

Women's equality has gone too far, say half of Britons.  About half of Britons believe that society has gone too far in promoting women's equality and that men are now discriminated against, a survey suggests.  According to the results of the survey, nearly one in two (47 percent) agreed with the statement:  "When it comes to giving women equal rights with men, things have gone far enough in my country."  This marks an increase on the 38 percent who said the same last year, and a rise in the proportion who felt this way as recently as 2019 (29 percent).  A total of 47 percent also agreed with the statement:  "We have gone so far in promoting women's equality that we are discriminating against men."  The research is being published as part of a global study carried out in 31 countries by the polling company, Ipsos, in collaboration with the Global Institute for Women's Leadership at King's College London for International Women's Day, on 8 March.

The climate crisis is not gender neutral.  The climate crisis is far from "gender neutral".  Women and men are affected differently by weather and climate, and therefore need gender-sensitive information and services, WMO Secretary-General Celeste Saulo said in a keynote address. [...] Since taking office at the start of the year, Celeste Saulo says one of her priorities is to foster greater diversity within the WMO, ensuring equitable representation across gender, regional, and cultural lines.  She is committed to implementing the WMO Gender policy which was updated in 2023.  "Women and girls are disproportionately affected by climate change and weather-related disasters.  In addition, we know that they have less access to climate information, early warnings, agricultural advisory services, mobile phone technology and financial credit," she told the International Gender Champions event, hosted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

Feminism run amok.  By advocating a society in which everything is equal, modern progressivism stifles the relevant traits.  It robs women of their femininity, while simultaneously emasculating men.  The result is that members of neither sex get what they ultimately want.  Progressivism increasingly directs women towards elite high-paying positions.  Significantly more women than men are currently going into higher education, many of whom will be forced to "date down".  This breeds incompatibilities and dissatisfaction.  Women currently initiate some 70% of divorces, with devastating familial and societal consequences.  The dearth of satisfactory men for the "elevated woman" is exacerbated by many higher status males going for younger and more fertile women, often completely bypassing the aging careerists who desire a man that is at the very least on their level.  By failing to inform women of this, feminism does them a wrong.  In the midst of all of this, a significant portion of less successful men are continually rejected by the opposite sex.

The Hysterical Style in American Politics.  In October 2017, allegations surfaced about serial sexual predation by liberal cinema icon Harvey Weinstein.  The #MeToo furor immediately followed.  At first, accusers properly outed dozens of mostly liberal celebrities, actors, authors, and CEOs for their prior and mostly covered-up sexual harassment and often assault.  But soon, the once legitimate movement had morphed into general hysteria.  Thousands of men (and women) were persecuted for alleged offenses, often sexual banter or rude repartee, committed decades prior.  #MeToo jumped the shark with the left-wing effort to take down conservative Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  Would-be accusers surfaced from his high school days, 35 years earlier, but without any supporting evidence or witnesses for their wild, lurid charges.  #MeToo hysteria ended when too many liberal grandees were endangered.

Minnesota's capital city seats all-female City Council.  St. Paul, Minnesota, seated four new City Council members on Tuesday, and now has an entirely female slate of Council members. Additionally, all seven women are under age 40, and six of the seven are women of color.  Anika Bowie, Saura Jost, Hwa Jeong Kim and Cheniqua Johnson became the Council's newest members.  Rebecca Noecker, Mitra Jalali and Nelsie Yang all won reelection in their districts.  All seven members are Democrats but ran on a nonpartisan ballot.  Prior to Tuesday, two of the seven council members were male.

The Failure of Western Feminism When It's Most Needed.  On Nov. 25, the United Nations initiated its annual Sixteen Days of Global Activism Against Gender-Based Violence against women and girls.  This will continue until Dec. 10, which is Human Rights Day.  My people are the feminists at the UN. They also head NGOs, occupy chairs at foundations, human rights organizations, national women's organizations, and Women's Studies/Gender Studies departments, and are prominent Talking Heads in the media.  For eight whole weeks, they have remained silent about the genocidal rapes of Israeli women on Oct. 7.  Some of these women once waged brave and determined battles against rape, incest, and domestic violence; supported the #MeToo Movement; and at least issued statements condemning the rapes of women in Bosnia, Rwanda, Sudan, and the Yazidi women who were kidnapped by ISIS.  They also supported the idea that rape is a war crime, at least in a battle zone.  However, these once visionary feminists have not only betrayed Israeli women — they have also betrayed women of color who live under Sharia law.

International Women's Rights Orgs Quiet On Kidnapping And Sexual Violence In Israel.  Several international women's rights organizations have remained silent as terrorists killed and sexually assaulted numerous Israeli women in an attack over the weekend, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of their social media platforms and websites.  Hamas, a U.S.-designated Palestinian terrorist group, invaded Israel Saturday morning and began executing and kidnapping Israeli men, women, children and the elderly, with over 700 reported dead and 2,100 injured.  Multiple outlets have reported that Hamas terrorists have been sexually assaulting women as they tried to escape from a music festival in Israel but international women's groups have remained silent over the past few days despite the violence.

Women's Groups Silent As Rape Is Used As an Act of War.  The United Nations is useless.  In case you needed another example of that statement, look no further than the silence from the organization as women's groups document the use of rape as a weapon of war.  Israeli women were raped by Hamas during the October 7 attack.  The silence of the United Nations has been deafening.  For example, Sarah Weiss Maudi, a senior diplomat and legal adviser in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, recently said that women's rights groups and Israeli officials have documented the stories of women in Israel who were raped by Hamas and shared graphic documentation with the United Nations and groups that claim to protect and empower women.  Weiss Maudi said they have received nothing but silence.  "Their silence is so deafening that it's sickening."

This lady absolutely nails how feminism has glamorized "every poor choice".  Nothing but 1 minute of truth here.  [Tweet with video clip]

Abortion Is Just A Symptom.  [Scroll down]  Who out of those four groups listed above do you think are the people most likely to consume pop culture? [...] It's single people.  And for a number of reasons we don't need to bore ourselves with, pretty clearly pop culture is aimed at women more than men.  Just consider the differential in consumer marketing between the sexes and it becomes obvious.  Even the NFL, when it markets merchandise during games, is trying to sell to women as often as men, and it's no longer a surprise to see things like tampon commercials running during college basketball games.  And all the action movies have women beating men to a pulp now.  They're not trying to attract male audiences with that kind of programming.  So women, and single women in particular, are the target audience for most of what corporate media — which is dominated by the Left; most of those media conglomerates who control pop culture are as woke or nearly so as Disney is — and what messaging is fed to them?  Certainly not that today's single women should aspire to be wives and mothers, that's for sure.  And yet who are the most unhappy people in America?  Single women.  Unhappy people are the Left's stock in trade.

Feminism's Fatal Flaw.  Men are invading female spaces, stealing championships, and mocking the very meaning of "woman" — subtly attempting to reverse centuries of progress.  The testimony from Chloe Cole and former University of Pennsylvania swimmer Paula Scanlan at a Congressional hearing on Thursday again points to a troubling emptiness in the narrative — where are the feminists?  Despite the obvious attack on women's rights and all the achievements they fought so hard for, the headlines are empty of major feminists championing these women.  Where are the Gloria Steinems of today?  Why are high level feminist activists freely allowing the regression of women's rights?  It's simple — this is exactly what they asked for.

If I made a movie that treated women the way Barbie treats men, feminists would want me executed.  What is the patriarchy?  I bet most people reading this haven't a clue.  Even I don't really understand it, and according to radical feminists, I'm supposed to be the very personification of what it supposedly represents.  Yet it's a word that is said so relentlessly in the smash-hit new Barbie movie that it's worth knowing exactly what it means.  The literal translation, derived from the ancient Greek word "patriarkhēs," is "rule of the father" and denoted the reality at the time that men were the titular heads of most families and organizations.  But in recent times, the concept of "the patriarchy" has been hijacked and corrupted by feminazis to suggest that every aspect of life and society is dominated by powerful, privileged males over subjugated, underprivileged females.  In short:  Men are evil oppressors, women are unimpeachably perfect victims, and anyone who dares challenge this notion is a disgusting misogynist.

Elon Musk joins backlash against Barbie film's portrayal of anti-man feminism.  Elon Musk has joined the backlash against Barbie, attacking the blockbuster's depiction of 'patriarchy'.  It's the biggest film of the year and has stormed the box office with a record $155million debut, but while fans love it, critics have been split. [...] Billionaire Tesla owner Musk, who is known for being outspoken and often aligns himself with conservative viewpoints, has hinted he wasn't a fan of the message of the film, which was created by director Greta Gerwig.  'It [sic] you take a shot every time Barbie says the word "patriarchy", you will pass out before the movie ends,' Musk said on Twitter in response to a meme.

'Barbie' Highlights Emptiness of Modern Feminism.  "Barbie" is a movie that dares to make the critique that Barbie — the much-loved and much-criticized doll — just isn't enough.  Sure, she's got a bombshell figure, and the chops to climb the ladder in any industry.  (Barbie has reportedly held more than 200 jobs, including being a CEO, a surgeon, and even a moon-landing astronaut — four years before Neil Armstrong.)  She has an amazing dreamhouse, a fun convertible, and enough fabulous outfits to make any social media influencer cry with jealousy.  She's got it all, supposedly — and yet in a twist, the "Barbie" movie shows us just how poor and sad the life of this supposed icon, beloved by generations of girls, is.  What we imagine, it turns out, isn't as wonderful as what we have.

Dems Attempt To Cram The ERA Amendment Through Congress.  Democrats are attempting to resurrect the ERA — or "Equal Rights Amendment" to push their radical ideology.  It was not fully ratified by 1982, with only 35 states, and 3 more states ratified it AFTER the deadline.  Now two Dems, Rep. Cori Bush, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, want to push forward a bill that says it was ratified and force the National Archivist to certify and publish it as law.

How Women Have Robbed Themselves.  In my misspent youth I found Gloria Steinem inspiring and myself ill-used.  This phase petered out quickly because my life as a stay-at-home, go-to-night-school wife and mom was really pretty nice.  And the more history I read, the more of the Bible I digested, the more I came to appreciate that I was doing the most important thing I could be doing — raising amazing children.  We humans seem to have done that "filling the earth" thing well, and for the most part, at least in western civilization, we have raised our children well.  But things changed during the 60s and 70s.  The birth-control pill followed by Roe vs. Wade in 1973 set off massive alterations.  Yes, those alterations gave us the freedom to bear only as many children as we wanted, when we wanted, but it also left us dealing with a different mandate — to have sex whenever with whomever.  Our precious place as God's assistant in the giving of life evaporated.

CNN: Women Marrying Themselves as 'Symbolic Expression of Self-Love'.  CNN spoke with four women who "married themselves" — a self-marriage officially referred to as "sologamy."  The left-leaning news outlet painted "sologamy" as pertaining more to mental health and "self-love"  rather than an extension of living an "auto-sexual" lifestyle — being sexually attracted to oneself — which has been addressed in other news articles on the topic.  "The concept of self-marriage, or sologamy, has been around for years... No data exists on how many people celebrate sologamy with ceremonies, but the practice has been explored in a handful of recent news articles," CNN reported.

Burning Down Barriers: Female Firefighter Conference Causes 'Out of Control' Forest Fire.  Female firefighters taking part in a Women-in-Fire Training Exchange program — intended to promote "mental health and gender diversity and inclusion" — accidentally caused an "out of control" forest fire in Banff National Park.  Residents in the surrounding areas were evacuated and several buildings were damaged on May 3 after the female firefighters initiated a prescribed burn that quickly escalated into an uncontrolled blaze.

Man wins women's poker tournament.  The latest "Florida Man" story to pop up in the news comes with a number of twists.  Typically, any story with that tag involves someone doing something incredibly stupid and either getting arrested or seriously injuring themself.  But Dave Hughs didn't do either of those things.  While visiting the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, Dave wound up winning the "Ladies No-Limit Hold'em" poker tournament.  But Mr. Hughs is not a transgender woman.  He's just a guy who likes to play poker.  In fact, he's "100% against" men competing in women's sports.

The Editor says...
What is the purpose of a poker tournament exclusively for women?  What disadvantage do women face while playing cards?

America's Transgender Craze.  Future historians may look back on 2023 as Peak Trans Women insanity. [...] Who can forget the mediocre male swimmier Lia Thomas winning swimming championships as a female?  Meanwhile, a trans weightlifter will even compete in the upcoming Olympics and do so as a woman.  A transgendered athlete recently defeated 14,000 female competitors in the London marathon.  Far less publicized is that state prisons now contain 5000 men who identify as women while some 1300 are inmates of federal prisons.  What is going on?  Is America experiencing a mass psychosis where men wake up as "women" and demand to be treated as females?  Has our water supply been massively contaminated by estrogen?  Or are we just experiencing a harmless fad like purple hair?  This men-becoming-women trend is the other side of what occurred decades back as women increasingly moved into traditional male fields.

Feminism's Strange Trans Fruit.  Leaving the fight against the trans movement, specifically the men who demand that we all play along with their supposedly feminine identities, entirely up to women would relinquishing to feminists (and their many male allies and puppetmasters) exactly what they want.  They want it to be impossible for the public to see a distinction between feminist and woman, as if all females are enthusiastic participants in a feminist Borg collective.  In fact, one of the most potent tools of feminism in recent decades has been to say "Women need X" when the truth is that feminists want X and don't care what the rest of women actually want.  This conceals feminists' actual, far smaller numbers.

Democrats Are The Nigerian Princes Of American Politics.  For fifty years, Democrats told American women that men were superfluous to raising children, but now that's moot because men can have babies, genetic men are real women, and prepubescent children are mature enough to consent to sex change operations.  They tell us with a straight face that the "Woman of the Year" should be a guy who used to be a mediocre men's swimmer but who dominates when competing against real women.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg proposes spending $20 million taxpayer dollars on female crash test dummies.  Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has proposed that the Department of Transportation include $20 million for female crash-test dummies in its 2024 fiscal budget.  That Buttigieg — famous for his love of females though he may be — wants to spend vast sums of taxpayer dollars on feminine crash dummies seems odd in the current cultural climate in which we salute all things non-binary.  Nonetheless, Mayor Pete's proposal has already garnered support from several House Democrats.  For example, Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut praised Buttigieg's plan during a recent House Appropriations Subcommittee meeting.  DeLauro stated that the use of female crash dummies would be a major step forward in the fight against "gender inequity".  Say what?  Unlike humans, who are either one sex or another, crash dummies can't be gendered[,] as they are not living beings.  But, in today's world, nothing can stand in the way of insanity.

The Editor says...
The clamor for female crash test dummies is clearly promoting violence against women.  Or maybe it's a sexist commentary on the way women drive.  Either way, where are the great feminist leaders now?

Philosophy's No-Go Zone.  [Scroll down]  Take, for example, the question, What is a woman?  That isn't just the title of conservative provocateur Matt Walsh's 2022 documentary.  It's a question asked by Simone de Beauvoir in her feminist classic, The Second Sex, more than 70 years ago.  You might think that Beauvoir's question has an easy answer — women are the mature, post-pubertal, females of our species.  (Likewise, men are the mature males, and girls and boys are the immature or juvenile females and males.)  A woman, Matt Walsh's wife Alissa says at the end of the film, is an adult human female.  The joke is that the people Walsh interviews are unable to give this obvious answer.  For instance, Professor Patrick Grzanka, Chair of the Interdisciplinary Program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, tells Walsh that a woman is "a person who identifies as a woman."  This is (as Walsh points out) circular, in the sense that the explanation uses the word "woman"; but the real problem is that Grzanka's answer is plainly false.  A woman with severe dementia doesn't "identify as" anything.

New Studies on Pro-Female/Anti-Male Bias: 'Effects many times larger than race'.  Due to the obvious implications of those findings, the researchers were leery about how they'd be received, both by potential publishers and the academic community generally.  After all, the idea that humans have built-in favoritism toward women and against men runs contrary to bedrock notions of feminism that have come to be widely accepted.  And, as we know, information that fails to agree with certain currently accepted nostrums often finds itself sidelined or simply removed altogether from public discourse. [...] We can cite far too many instances in which women are favored (sometimes at the expense of men) and men aren't.  Now, studies of implicit bias regarding race have long been criticized as lacking the two requisites of good scholarship — reliability and validity.  Replicating their results has been hard and establishing validity impossible.  There's simply little-to-no evidence that a person who tests as implicitly racially biased in fact behaves that way in everyday life.

Reversing The Destruction of a Generation.  It should surprise no one that Andrew Tate has attracted millions of young male fans.  He is the antidote to the politically correct, vapid absurdities they are force fed by every institution in the Western world.  A generation of American men are being systematically marginalized, demoralized, demotivated, abused and destroyed.  The Tate phenomenon is an extreme reaction to an extreme problem.  In America today, if someone is a white, straight, biological male who "identifies as male," he is condemned for his ethnicity, his masculinity, his "othering" cisgender normality, his heteronormativity, and for all of these undesirable "oppressor" traits, his privilege.  If he's not white but possesses any of these other so-called toxic traits, he is still a candidate to get on board the Tate train, where he will be welcome.

Ladies, it's time to speak up.  Let me first state that this is not an attack upon women.  I have a great affinity for women as I believe that women possess more energy, stamina, brain power, and a great many other superior traits than men.  What I am unable to grasp is why women are so silent on the current attack they face.  Why women are so reluctant to support other women.  I speak of the insanity that is currently be offered as reality, men claiming to be women.  Insanity, no matter how it is presented, will be thought of as normalcy if no one stands up and says that it is insanity.  There are a few voices raised by women such as Riley Gaines, Candace Owens, and Kristi Noem, but over all there is utter silence from women internationally.  I find this to be strange, as women have raised their voices in the past against and for such causes as female suffrage, prohibition, equal pay, and a litany of causes.

A Pandemic of Cognitive Dissonance.  We're facing yet another pandemic.  It's not a viral outbreak.  This crisis is a mental disorder outbreak — rather like mass hysteria.  The outbreak has spread worldwide, but fortunately only affects those of a leftward political persuasion.  The condition is cognitive dissonance. [...] Why do feminists claim they're fighting for female rights while they promote male superiority?  They support the political movement that advances the notion that men have a right to participate in women's sports, use women's bathrooms, and be incarcerated in women's prisons.  A well know self-proclaimed champion of a women's rights recently bowed to a man in drag — and was celebrated for doing it.  Claiming women are equal, while showing subservience to a man seems like a bit of a disconnect — no?

It All Began With the Pill.  If the Nobel Prize Committee had the category of Most Influential Invention of the Last Century, one candidate might be the Pill, the contraceptive that came into widespread use in the 1960s and triggered a chain reaction of one tectonic, societal earthquake after another.  I was a college student at the time and watched it happen. [...] The Pill's advent ignited a tsunami of fornication, a.k.a. premarital sex and adultery, that led to a further tsunami of millions of couples divorcing, the invention of no-fault divorce, millions of tears, and millions of broken families.  The Pill produced "Women's Lib" and women like Hillary "Lady Macbeth" Clinton, who sneered at motherhood and wanted a "career" just like a man.

The Great Feminization of the American University.  My Manhattan Institute colleague Heather Mac Donald has published a provocative new essay in City Journal, titled "The Great Feminization of the American University."  Mac Donald begins by pointing out that women now constitute the ruling majority on campus:  75 percent of Ivy League presidents, 66 percent of college administrators, and 58 percent of recent graduates are now female.  And the consequences, Mac Donald argues, are troubling. "Female students and administrators often exist in a co-dependent relationship, united by the concepts of victim identity and of trauma," she writes.  "For university females, there is not, apparently, strength in numbers.  The more females' ranks increase, the more we hear about a mass nervous breakdown on campus."

In Loco Masculi: The feminization of the American university is all but complete.  Sometimes a single incident efficiently summarizes a larger trend.  So it is with New York University's selection of its new president, Linda Mills, a licensed clinical social worker and an NYU social work professor.  She researches trauma and bias, as well as race and gender in the legal academy.  She is a documentary filmmaker and teaches advocacy filmmaking. [...] The most significant part of her identity, however, and the one that ties the rest of her curriculum vitae together, is that she is female, and thus overdetermined as NYU's next president.  Mills is part of the Great Feminization of the American university, an epochal change whose consequences have yet to be recognized.  Seventy-five percent of Ivy League presidents are now female.

The 'Trans'-Fem Debate: The National Version of 'My Wife is Always Right'.  "A pox on both their houses," we may say, when wishing both sides in a contest could lose.  I surely feel this way, too, with the "transgender" vs. feminist debate over men masquerading as females entering women's sports and private spaces.  Oh, I don't fence-sit.  Not only have I likely written more pieces on preposterous "transgenderism" than most any other commentator, but I even reject the term and coined a more accurate characterization of the phenomenon — the MUSS (Made-up Sexual Status) agenda.  Yet I also know this:  While leftists may call that agenda a men's-rights-movement monster, the foundation for it absolutely was laid by feminists.

Erasing Women.  At one point feminism meant being able to compete with men in the workplace.  It meant being able to assert the rights of all human beings regardless of their sex.  I remember when the goal of feminism was presented as "empowering women."  It wasn't long before this warped into the concept that, in order for women to be successful, they had to become like men.  They had to become as rude and crude as many men in business and public life were.  They had to give up their womanhood and the God-given power of being mothers.  Now that has warped further into the actual denial of their feminine character.  They have to celebrate their abortions.  Some say abortions kill half the unborn women but in fact girl babies are aborted more than boys.  We have toxic feminism.

Hillary Clinton claims the U.S. makes it 'as hard as possible for women to have careers'.  While speaking recently on something called "The Story of Woman" podcast, Hillary Clinton said that the U.S. makes it "as hard as possible" for women to have careers.  Really, former first lady and Secretary of State?  There are countless female CEOs, accountants, doctors, lawyers, and store managers in the United States today.  No fewer than 60% of college students are female.  Roughly 86 of the approximately 328 women billionaires on Earth are American, including Oprah Winfrey.  That's more than 26% of all female billionaires alive.

Jiggery-Pokery Wokery.  The woke love to destroy whatever they touch — culture, infrastructure, social cohesion, rational thought.  To be woke is to embrace chaos and injury as a philosophy.  From an anthropological perspective, wokeism is fascinating because its practitioners believe they are creative freethinkers while they act as lobotomized sheep.  Whatever the woke wizards posing as priests tell their needy followers, the woke herds accept as truth. [...] If deception, violence, and obedience are all part of the woke creed, then contradiction is its life-force. [...] We must believe all women unless those women are speaking out against men pretending to be women — in which case, we must first believe all men pretending to be women, no matter how much they do not appear to be women at all.  Biological sex is nothing more than a social construct, yet a man who wears a dress and wig and demands society treat him as he desires is somehow a demonstration of objective reality.  Women's and men's sports divisions and the separation of their locker rooms recognize the reality that women and men are physically different, yet physically different men who mentally pretend to be women are miraculously physically indistinguishable from women and should be allowed to compete against them.  Furthermore, any woman who objects to the imposition of men competing in her sport or undressing in her locker room is bigoted for acknowledging a fact out loud that can no longer be acknowledged as politically correctScience demands that reality be based on emotion.

Guilty Unless Proven Innocent is the Army Norm.  For most of the history of the Army, what would in the 21st century be known as Equal Opportunity (EO) and Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) programs were sorely lacking effectiveness.  Soldiers could face bias, harassment, even sexual assault, with little or no real recourse.  Soldiers could report the offenses, but leadership often swept accusations under the rug.  In the mid-2000s a female senior non-commissioned officer (NCO) was raped by a male officer.  She would not file a complaint against the man because, "nothing's going to happen about it."  This was all too common.  Forward to the early 2010s and things began to change.  The Army threatened commanders that if EO or SHARP were not properly investigated, and a blind eye was turned, their careers would be endangered.  EO and SHARP complaints began to be taken seriously.  Investigations occurred.  Guilty perpetrators were held accountable.  Accusations soared because soldiers felt more comfortable reporting.  But the pendulum continued to swing away from the do-nothing of the past towards the #metoo and #trustallwomen knee-jerk reactions of the late teens where accusations equal guilt.

The sedation, subordination and emasculation of young men.  Testosterone is an interesting hormone.  The more a man uses it, the higher his levels become.  And the higher his levels become, the more he wants to use it.  Exercise, especially resistance training like weight lifting, increases T levels.  And then the increased T levels make a man want to go lift some weights.  It's a virtuous circle.  If gasoline in a car were like T in a man's body, the more you drove, and the harder you drove, the more gas there would be in your tank.  But there's not much gas in the tank of young men these days.  The Cleveland Clinic and other researchers report that men today, especially young ones, have less T than ten, twenty or fifty years ago.  Odds are, you're not the man your father was.  Testosterone does more than make a man want to hit the weights.  It also makes him happier, healthier, sexier, more muscular, more productive, and more reproductive.

To Save America, Repeal the 19th Amendment.  The only iron law of history is that imbalances will be corrected, sometimes violently.  Based on current voting patterns, if women didn't vote, there would never be another Democrat president.  Now, who wouldn't make that trade?  Come on, ladies, do your duty to God and country, and give it up for America.

The great feminist leaders are all completely silent about this:
Dude Dressed As A Woman, Rachel Levine, Hilariously Claims He's Broken Glass Ceilings For Women.  Rachel Levine talks about breaking glass ceilings and being an inspiration to other women.  A man who doesn't have a uterus and spent the majority of his career identifying as a man, is a glass-ceiling- breaking female hero?  Why is it culturally acceptable to mock womanhood?  [Video clip]

Isn't Drafting Women an Imperative of Equality?  At a gathering a couple of years ago, a young man, about age 20, registered surprise when I told him women didn't have to sign up for Selective Service.  His reaction was no surprise: Marinated in Equality Dogma growing up, he probably couldn't imagine that the greatest sacrifice one could be required to make — to possibly have to shed blood for his country — is demanded of only one sex.  This could possibly change, as there has been a recent effort to require draft registration of women as well.  Conservatives have generally opposed this, unsurprisingly, with the very good Congressman Chip Roy (R-Tex.) becoming especially incensed at the notion.

Language warning!
Four nefariously managed events meant to harm us.  [#3] Wokery, the Marxist campaign to disorder society in order to overthrow existing institutions and replace them with a utopian dictatorship of the intersectionally oppressed — also known as The Revenge of the Losers. [...] Wokery, you may have noticed, is also a "religion" dominated by women, and a particular strain of women:  those left grossly disappointed by the promises of feminism in its several iterations, that is, the ideal of having brilliant careers minus family and children — producing an implacable, inchoate, and transmissible rage at the world and a fierce wish-to-punish others not so disposed to Woke dogma.  So, it's no surprise that so much of that dogma emanated from the humanities departments of the universities where such careerist feminist intellectuals flocked and marinated in their disappointments.  Thus, too, their avatar:  the ever cold-blooded and fiendish Hillary Clinton, forever seeking requital for her life's losses.

Study Shows Schools Award Girls and Women Better Grades Regardless of Merit.  Data indicates that only 40% of university students are now male.  Over the course of the last five years, 70% of the decreases in university enrollment are accounted for by men.  The high school dropout rate for students on the college track is 30% higher for boys as compared to girls.  Curiously, Social Justice™ activists — who, again, are otherwise obsessed with "gender disparities" — don't seem to voice any concern on this front.  As anyone who has been victimized by the public "education" system in the West over the past twenty years, as I have, can attest, educational institutions are now openly hostile to boys and men.

The Most Disgusting Country In All Of Europe.  Once upon a time, the highly advanced nations of western Europe were the peak of human civilization.  Sadly, that hasn't been true for a very long time, and now major cities all over the European continent are becoming rotting, decaying hellholes.  Everywhere you look, there is human degradation, but one country is worse than them all.  Ironically, it is actually the European nation with the largest and strongest economy.  Germany has openly embraced just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine, but in this article I want to focus on what they are doing to young women.  Legalized prostitution is practiced on an industrial scale by the Germans, and this has earned them the title "the bordello of Europe". [...] Germany is supposed to be one of the most "progressive" countries in Europe.  But this practice does not lift women up.  Instead, it degrades them in some of the most horrible ways imaginable.

Feminism Is Key To The Left's Post-Covid Reset, But They Can't Get Their Oppression Story Straight.  By far, the most destabilizing fault line in the Western world is the one that feminism has opened between men and women.  It is set to widen even further if Reset proponents have their way.  In its institutional forms, feminism is a radical ideology alleging that women are oppressed in a patriarchal order created and maintained for male benefit through institutions such as the traditional family.  Developed in the North American universities of the 1970s and 1980s, feminism's assertions about male control of women have spread far wider into society as feminist students graduated and began careers in teaching, journalism, law, social work, public relations, and business.  Though often claiming to seek equality between the sexes (itself a dubious, oft-unrealizable goal), feminists regularly call for special privileges for women and corresponding restrictions for men.  Feminism shares with the Schwabian Reset a utopian vision of a reimagined world in which the historically disempowered will be compensated and protected by enlightened leaders who will manage all aspects of our social, economic, and domestic lives.  In this transformed world, a never-before-achievable righting of injustice will become possible as the enemies of fairness and of the common good — the selfish, the competitive, the predatory, and the retrograde — will be once and for all neutralized by government fiat.

As Women in Iran Are Shot Down While Fighting for Their Rights, the Squad Has Little to Say.  What's happening in Iran is the biggest women's rights protest ever in the Islamic world.  Yet the response from some of the leading feminists in the United States, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, has been strikingly muted.  Each one has made what can be characterized at best as a tepid, pro forma response, one that contrasts sharply with their statements and actions during the Trump administration.  It looks as if each one of these women regards Donald Trump as a far greater threat to women than the Islamic Republic of Iran is.

Women Are Disproportionately Hurting Our Country.  [Scroll down] The most obvious example is education.  American schools teach less and indoctrinate more than ever before.  Big-city public (and most private) schools are damaging young Americans to an extent and in ways no one imagined just a few years ago.  Young children are prematurely sexualized — they are, for example, exposed to "Drag Queen Story Hour" in class and in local libraries from the age of 5.  These feature a man dressed as a woman reading and dancing for them.  And who is facilitating all of this?  In virtually every case, a woman.  Ninety-two percent of kindergarten teachers are women, 75% of all teachers are women and 85% of librarians are women.  And they are teaching young people to despise their country (the creator of the poisonous "1619 Project" is a woman), to feel guilty about their "white privilege" or to think of themselves as victims if they are black.  Even worse, they are indoctrinating them in "nonbinary" thinking regarding sex and gender.

National Women's History Museum Prominently Features 3 Biological Men.  The National Women's History Museum (NWHM) website's biography section now prominently features three biological males who live and dress as females.  The three featured biographies of this month are of trans rights activists Cecilia Chung and Andrea Jenkins, as well as President Joe Biden's Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine. [...] Levine, who serves as Assistant Health Secretary, recently called "gender-affirming care" for youth, a far-left euphemism for child mutilation, a "lifesaving" and medical necessity.

The Rise of Black Girly Men.  I've noticed that when media represent so-called "transgender" men and highly effeminate males, they are often black.  Perhaps far too many people are desensitized to the pollution in our mass media to notice the disproportionate number of high-profile effeminate black men showcased in high rotation in all mass communication media.  These "gender-fluid" celebrities all display a common exaggerated and dramatically "flaming" exhibitionistic effeminate behavior.  It is my simple observation that whenever the secular humanist liberal class desires to impose non-traditional values into the public square, they often employ compromised black individuals or assume "black causes" to advance their self-serving agenda.  These elites care nothing for blacks or America, just their own pursuits.  The elites use blacks as human shields, as window dressing to manipulate, deflect, suppress, and silence any debate, dissent, or opposition from the majority of Americans who fear airing ideas or opinions that would result in being labeled as racists, homophobic, fascists, or all three.

Green-Haired, Morbidly Obese Leftist Women Call for Sex Strike Over Abortion Ruling.  It's an idea as old as Aristophanes' Lysistrata (that's a play from the 5th century BC, kids):  women who haven't gotten their way have decided to withhold sex from their men until the frustrated lugs comply with their wishes.  In New York City's Union Square on Saturday, a pro-abortion protester named Caroline Healey declared:  "I think it's absolutely valid for us to be withholding the Holy Grail that men seem to think is important."  Judging from the many videos that have surfaced over the last few days of green-haired, slovenly dressed, morbidly obese, body-painted pro-abortion protesters, there is only one response:  Your terms are acceptable.

TikTok Trend Has Angry Leftist Women Threatening Hookup Sex Will Die Now That Roe Is Overturned.  In the weeks leading up to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on abortion, following the leaked draft in May, many women took to social media to let men know that if Roe were overturned, the habit of casual hookup sex would end.  "In case you're a man who doesn't care about roe v wade just know that if abortion gets banned hookup culture will be absolutely decimated," TikTok user @moneymollusk wrote in a video, which has received more than 1.2 million views in a single day.

Debauchery and Grossness are Abundant at the Pro-Abortion Protests After the Fall of Roe v Wade.  This was the scene in Dallas after the decision to overturn Roe v Wade by the Supreme Court.  Looks like the sludge at the bottom of society's barrel was scraped as women, and even some soy-infused men, twerked in front of the capital.  [Video clip]

If California Is Contemplating Reparations, Women Must Come First.  California, which was never a slave state, is now on a path to grant reparations to the descendants of slaves.  But if we're being fair, there's a group that deserves reparations first:  Women.  Women were America's first and last slaves.  Marriage turned women into freedomless, voiceless, chattel slaves, who needed permission to leave home.  A wife's assets, children, and body were her husband's property.  Spousal rape wasn't a crime.  Spousal rape laws were first repealed in 1975, and all states did so by 1993, but eleven still have loopholes or have not criminalized it.  If a husband wanted sex, a wife could be legally subject to corporal punishment for disobeying.  Laws permitted beating disobedient wives into the late 19th century.  Afterward, the practice persisted, and it was rarely punished.

There Is One Pro-Women Camp In American Politics, And It's The Right.  For decades, Democrats have ridden out the interest of third-wave feminism's propaganda campaign, taking for granted that most women voters see them as the party of female empowerment.  For as many decades, plenty of American women have let them.  Even at the height of the feminist movement, the lies that women must become like men to be real women were damaging — but now, all pretenses are up.  Every major political platform of the left is unabashedly antithetical to the protection, celebration, and dignity of womanhood.  Women have one political camp on their side today, and it's the right.

Guns Are Not the Problem.  [Scroll down]  It is considered offensive or stodgy even to suggest that things are not as they should be.  We're living in a male-dominated world, we are told over and over.  Men are thriving.  But it's the women who are thriving.  They are getting educated more than ever, making more money than ever, and they are finding the pickings of marriageable men with secure jobs (thanks, globalization) are slim.  The result is fewer marriages, or marriages delayed, and fewer families.  Our infertile, androgynous blob-society has destroyed masculinity and femininity both, leaving the sexes repulsed by one another.  Society ridicules masculinity and sets men up to fail with terrible advice: become docile and vulnerable, and be more like women.  While men have softened, femininity is becoming a rare quality in women.  The typical modern "boss b****" talks and acts like a man, is fatter than her predecessors, and has a sense of entitlement and an inflated sense of what she has to offer.  The marriage market is a minefield, and it's not hard to see why members of both sexes are approaching with caution.

Where are all the men?  On May 28, Sky News Australia posted a video titled "New York bearing signs of 'societal decay.'"  The video shows a man (who seems as if he is on drugs) entering a train car and sitting next to a young woman.  He then touches her without consent, grabs her, drags her around a bit, and generally is an extremely unpleasant nuisance.  He eventually leaves her alone and proceeds to try to kick out one of the windows.  During the video, the young woman is seen looking at other passengers, with obvious worry in her eyes, begging somebody to please "help me."  Nobody tries to help her.  The news anchor, Rita Panahi, asks the question, "Where are the men?"  If I had to guess, they were standing in their place, checking their male privilege, toning down their toxic masculinity, and coping with how their Time's Up.  Perhaps the men wanted a demonstration of how women are actually the stronger sex.  Perhaps the threat level just did not seem that high to them; New York has a duty to retreat, after all.  Besides, New York has been in the habit of arresting those who defend themselves.

Of course fatherlessness contributes to violent crime, including mass shootings.  The worse a problem is, the more likely commentators are to attribute the problem to a single cause.  And the flip side of this logically fallacious coin is that when someone mentions X as a contributing factor to the problem, angry or snarky commentators will say:  "How could you possibly say X is the cause of this problem?!!"  So now when you posit that the breakdown of the family and the community, the crumbling of the forces that young men and women need in order to build a happy, successful life, contributes to America's problem of gun violence, you get berated by angry liberals who assert that it's a dishonest "distraction" to talk about anything besides stricter gun laws.

The #MeToo movement has claimed a brilliant scientist.  Third-wave feminism, which is what's happening in America today, is toxic.  First-wave feminism was concerned with getting the vote and it made sense.  Second-wave feminism was concerned with equal pay for equal work and it too made sense.  Third-wave feminism is a man-hating variant powered by women who have been taught, mostly in college, that men are the enemy.  Generally, these third-wave feminists are damaged women whose promiscuity is sometimes epic.  Then, suddenly, they'll feel used and abused.  At that moment, they turn on the last person with whom they had a "relationship," believing he's responsible for their new self-loathing.  It's much easier to destroy a man than to examine one's own choices and make changes.

For the left, children are either obstacles or tools.  To the Left, children in the womb are utterly disposable; at best, women may choose to preserve their lives, but if not, they have no separate interests to be considered.  In fact, children are to be treated as potential obstacles: as Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said this week, "access to reproductive health care, including abortion, helped lead to increased labor force participation; it enabled many women to finish school.  That increased their earning potential."  This explains why the Left has now embraced the language of "forced birth" to describe laws protecting the unborn: pregnancy is no longer seen as the possible biological outgrowth of sexual activity, but as a dramatic foreign imposition on women.  The default, for the Left, is childlessness; pregnancy is somehow unnatural.  Thus, the entire Democratic Party apparatus now refuses to countenance even the mildest restrictions on even late-term abortion.

The World Does Not Run on Magic.  If you call a plumber to deal with a sewer pipe that has backed up into your basement, it is a practical certainty that it is going to be a man, because the sheer strength required to deal with the valve rusted shut, or with a section of pipe that has to be cut or muscled into place, is like a threshold.  If you cannot reach the threshold (and if you are a teenage boy or an old man, you are likely to fail) you cannot do that job.  You cannot, as our women soldiers apparently do, ask the man next to you to give you a hand.  All kinds of tasks involve such thresholds.  All right, then.  Now suppose that you do not want to raise boys to be those men.  How can you ensure that you fail at this basic task?  First, you deny millions of boys a married father in the home; you pursue policies perversely designed to reward family breakdown.  I am speaking of the preponderant case:  boys are not going to learn how to wield a sledgehammer from their mothers.

Yes, please.  You'll be much happier in China or Iran.  Bon voyage!
Rosanna Arquette: 'Millions of Women Figuring Out How to Get Out of This Country for Good'.  Actress Rosanna Arquette believes that abortion is such an incredibly sacred right that "millions of women" are now looking to flee the country now that Roe v. Wade stands on the cusp of being potentially overturned.  "Millions of women are figuring out how to get out of this country for good," the Pulp Fiction actress exclaimed.  Arquette later deleted the tweet, but her pro-abortion activism continued.

Stay Home With Your Babies.  My mother is a Baby Boomer.  She came from a culture in which mothers staying home with children was the norm (which it is in most parts of the world, by the way) and mothers going to work while their children went to babysitters seemed very out of place.  Her generation fought that notion.  They wanted the right to be seen as equal partners in financially providing for their families.  They wanted the right to go make a career and conquer their chosen professions without being saddled with supposedly archaic notions of motherhood.  We're all beneficiaries of that time.

Why Are Women Unhappy.  A little over a decade ago, two researchers at Wharton published a paper showing that, despite women's increasing work and educational opportunities, their self-reported happiness was in steady decline.  Back in 1970, women were on average happier than men; they are now less happy than men.  Broadly, since 1970, everyone has gotten more miserable.  But the decline in women's overall happiness has outpaced men's, and the happiness curve inverted sometime in the early 1990s.  The paper also documents increasing anxiety and neuroticism, as well as decreasing social cohesion among women.  The researchers couldn't come up with a good explanation for their observations.

House hearing erases existence of missing Indian men.  Recently, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform held a hearing on "The Neglected Epidemic of Missing BIPOC" — BIPOC meaning Black, Indian, and Persons of Color.  The focus on missing minority persons seemed justified, since they are more likely to go missing than White persons. [...] But there was something missing.  The hearing addressed only absent females, not missing males. [...] Under the tutelage of these groups, a new movement sprang into existence:  MMIW, an acronym that stands for "Murdered and Missing Indian Women."  There is no movement called MMIM, Murdered and Missing Indian Men.  This is ironic, considering that a Centers for Disease Control study, "Homicides of American Indians/Alaska Natives," found that males represented 75.5% of all Indian victims of homicide.  So in terms of Indians who are murdered or missing, men are at substantially higher risk.  But the MMIW movement isn't rooted in scientific fact or basic notions of fairness.

USA Today declares Dr. Rachel Levine its 2022 'Woman of the Year'.  USA Today has declared a string of wokesters for its 2022 'Women of the Year' honors, and one of them is Dr. Rachel Levine.  Seems you need to be born a man to achieve excellence in womanhood these days.  Being an actual woman is no longer enough.  The awards are absurd, given that not many of the women on the list have actual accomplishments  — they're there because they're victims, like Simone Biles, radical activists like Janet Murguía, promoters of bad things like recreational marijuana, like Roopali Desai; people who deny the obvious, like fashion editor Nina Garcia who credits her Colombian heritage rather than the opportunities America gave her with her success as an American fashion editor; or else women who have had some sort of role in inventing or promoting things that don't really work all that well, such as electric cars and the Moderna COVID vaccine.  Naturally, Kamala Harris, whose chief achievement as a woman has been to sleep her way to the top and serve as an affirmative action placeholder for the Biden administration as well as impeachment insurance for corrupt old Joe, is on the list.  And in Levine's case, it wasn't even necessary to have xx chromosomes, let alone merit, just that masculine energy it takes to seek promotions in order to be the alpha dog.

Ladies, It's Time to Help Our BoysThe Boy Crisis, written by Warren Farrell and John Gray, tells the staggering story of how our young men are being left behind.  By the eighth grade, 41 percent of girls are at least proficient in writing, compared with just 20 percent of boys.  Men now earn 39 percent of college degrees while the median annual earnings of a man with a high-school diploma have dropped 26 percent in the past 40 years.  The consequences are dire.  Fifteen- to 19-year-old boys commit suicide at four times the rate of girls.  Ninety-three percent of those in prison are men, and, according to the authors, "more black boys between ten and twenty are killed by homicide than by the next nine leading causes of death combined."  As civil-rights activist and community-development leader Robert Woodson says, "If you devalue your life, you'll either take your own, or you'll take someone else's."  Our young men, he adds, are "dying in acts of self-hatred."

Feminist Hypocrisy on Display as Feminists Ignore Transgender Athletes.  The National Organization of Women is one of the leading "women's rights" organizations with a stated goal, "Dedicated to its multi-issue and multi-strategy approach to women's rights and is the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States."  What are those rights?  Their home page has a flashing banner of "reproductive rights" front and center, which can be assumed to mean abortion on demand, anytime from conception to birth and perhaps even beyond birth, a decision made solely by the mother, without any restriction by law, government, morality, or the aspirations of the soon to be destroyed little girl who might someday want to join the National Organization for Women.  NOW also supports racial justice, which includes men, the evil oppressors railed against by the more militant feminist organizations.  Interestingly the public cases of supposed racial injustice mostly involve men, George Floyd, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and others, some of whom ironically have a history of assaulting women.

Group Calls for Car Crash Dummy Equity, Claims Male Body too Favored.  An advocacy group has written a letter to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg calling for greater equity in car crash dummy tests, claiming that the male body has been far too favored, leading to needless deaths of women.  The letter from Vehicle Equity Rules in Transportation, co-chaired by former Republican Congresswoman Susan Molinary, claimed that vehicle crash tests have not adequately taken into account of the harmful effects that collisions have on female bodies.

The Editor says...
[#1] Feminists have spent the last 50 years trying to convince everyone that women and men are interchangeable, and women are just as tough as men — perhaps even tougher.  (For example, women in combat, women in special forces, female cops, etc.)  Now they're switching back to the victim mode.  [#2] Come to think of it, why aren't half of the crash test dummies black?  [#3] For added realism, about half of the crash test dummies should be holding a cell phone in one hand, and a cigarette in the other.

The Real War on Women is From the Left.  Remember how the left not long ago went on and on and on about the supposed "war on women" from the right?  The irony is that according to current leftist dogma, women no longer exist.  After all, the Biden Administration's Department of Health and Human Services is insisting in referring to mothers (once understood as a significant subset of beings known as "women") as "birthing persons," because current leftist dogma says men can have babies, too.  Which means women no long have anything naturally distinctive about them. [...] Which brings me back to the story I've commented on before of Lia Thomas, the "woman" swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania who is shattering women's swim records after having competed for three years as an average male swimmer for Penn.

The Blue-Haired Shrews Of Feminism Do Not Speak For Women In America.  In the past decades the waves of feminism has gone from being a fight for equality into the demand that women, no matter how obnoxious and nasty they are, must be treated with respect they have not earned and be allowed to rabidly attack those that disagree with anything the so-called "feminist" believes, and claiming any "man" that disagrees with them are misogynist women-haters.  After so many years writing and observing the changes to the feminist movements, it is not hard to understand the disconnect, where less women identify as feminist yet their beliefs do match the original definitions of feminism.  The disconnect:  While almost all women in America believe in equality, only a minority are willing to associate themselves with what feminism has become in the present day.

Pelosi Says Women Face Particular Dangers From Climate Change.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., stated that climate change poses a greater risk to women than men across the world.  "[Climate change] is the existential threat of our time," Pelosi remarked Tuesday at COP26, the ongoing United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, according to The New York Times.  "It's a threat multiplier that amplifies and accelerates existing inequities.  Eighty percent of people displaced by climate change globally are women."  The information cited by Pelosi appeared to originate from a 2018 U.N. report that referenced the 80% figure, but it is unclear which study the statistic came from.  The report further concluded that women tend to be harmed more than men during cataclysmic climate events because they remain in the home while men are "out in the open" and cultural gender roles "sometimes limit women's abilities to make quick decisions."  On Monday [11/8/2021], Pelosi traveled to the conference along with nearly two dozen fellow House Democrats, she announced.

The Editor says...
[#1] For the last fifty years, the Democrats have been telling the rest of us that men and women are interchangeable, if not equivalent.  They wanted women in combat for that reason.  They complain about the "gender pay gap."  Are women leaders and heroes or are they victims?  [#2] The assertion that "eighty percent of people displaced by climate change globally are women" is nearly meaningless.  Eighty percent of what number?  How many people — out of the total population of 7.9 billion — have been "displaced by climate change?"  Nobody moves from one place to another entirely because of bad weather.  And if they do move, they will find that the climate changes everywhere.

Blame Public Schools for Transgender Bathroom Rapes.  In Loudoun County in Virginia, Scott Smith was dragged out of a school board meeting and arrested because he claimed that his daughter had been sodomized in the girls' restroom by a male wearing a skirt.  He was angry because the school had tried to conceal it, despite there being medical tests as proof.  Nearly two months after Smith's arrest, the school board voted to approve its transgender rights policy, which requires that teachers use students' preferred pronouns.  From six states in 2019, today, only four have laws that forbid instruction of LGBT propaganda in public schools:  Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  Alabama repealed its law, and South Carolina's was overturned.  Despite Texas law, schools actively promote transgenderism.  The library at the elementary Blackshear Fine Arts Academy in Austin hosted a drag queen convicted of prostitution charges.  A few weeks later, the Austin ISD School Board of Trustees adopted a radical sex curriculum.  Despite heavy parent opposition, the Austin school district continues to promote a radical sex curriculum.

Three Canned Contestants Sue a Beauty Contest for Judging Them.  Recently, the country of France saw an immense injustice — allegedly.  Three women have teamed with a group called Osez le feminisme ("Dare to Be a Feminist") in order to right the egregious wrong.  To hear the shunned trio tell it, they were recently dogged by discrimination.  Hence, the crowing crew is suing Endemol Production as well as the Miss France beauty pageant.  Tragically, the three ladies didn't make the contest's cut.  According to their claim, Miss France judged them... based on their appearance.  Yes — their appearance.

"What happens to women in other countries means NOTHING to the American feminist.".  [Tweet with video clip]

The Silence of the Squad.  By now, most public figures have commented on the tragic situation in Afghanistan, and the members of "the Squad" are no exception.  But what is most notable about their statements is what is left unsaid.  These purported advocates for Muslims, women, and People of Color are displaying no concern for the Afghan people as living, breathing human beings.  Instead, they are exploiting a humanitarian crisis to further their partisan agenda.  The Squad displays concern for those few Afghans able to reach the United States, 7,400 miles from home, to the near-total exclusion of the 38 million Afghans in Afghanistan.  In other words, its members care less about Afghans than their own "open borders" agenda, which falsely portrays America as racist and lacking empathy.  Every member of the Squad is demanding entry of Afghan refugees into the United States before considering the fate of those left behind with the maniacal Taliban, which despises notions of equality and individual liberty.

Where Are America's 'Feminists' Fighting for Afghan Women?  After four years of marching in the streets and claiming "oppression" under President Donald Trump, many of the country's so-called feminists are conspicuously silent about the plight of women and girls in Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban takeover.  Worse, some of those who aren't silent are instead using their platforms to attack conservatives who are working to bring attention to the rights of Afghan girls and women.  "If the GOP wants to show that it is sincerely concerned with the rights of the women in Afghanistan, it can start by first championing the human rights of women in the U.S.," one MSNBC contributor wrote.

Time's Up Co-Founder Resigns amid Backlash over Cuomo Ties.  The co-founder of Time's Up, an advocacy group created amid the #MeToo movement to combat sexual harassment, resigned on Monday following reports that she was involved in an effort to discredit a woman who accused New York governor Andrew Cuomo of harassment.  Roberta Kaplan, who co-founded the group and heads its legal defense fund, said in her resignation letter that her work as a lawyer prevents her from publicly responding to questions about her involvement in that effort.

Just After Cuomo's Top Aid Melissa DeRosa Resigned Photos Surfaced Where Cuomo Appeared To Touch Her Thigh In A Restaurant.  A top aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has resigned amid an AG report that accused Cuomo of sexually harassing several women, according to the Wall Street Journal, CNN, and other national media outlets.  Melissa DeRosa tendered her resignation on Sunday night [8/8/2021].

Reactions Pour In After Senate Panel Votes To Make Women Register For Draft: 'Equality'.  The Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday [7/21/2021] approved language in its annual defense policy bill that would require women to register for the draft.  The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was approved by senators on the committee behind closed doors, The Hill reported.  A summary of the Act indicates that the approved NDAA "amends Military Selective Service Act to require the registration of women for Selective Service."  This Selective Service, or draft, "highlight" comes under a portion of the Act's summary called the "Subcommittee on personnel."

Meet The Flyover Women Pop Culture Ignores.  Ironically, whether they know it or not, feminists' unspoken premise insists men are superior to women and women must become like them in the pursuit of equality.  Therefore, to be equal, women must be able to eliminate the consequences of sex, like men, and rid themselves of unborn children through unrestricted abortion.  Abortion is the crux of most women's policy issues and is at the heart of the greatest political divisions in the United States. [...] Fly-over women are the moms and daughters and wives and sisters and friends the media overlooks because they are religious or frumpy or don't have sexy day jobs.  They are considered uneducated doormats.  Their bodies are often tired, hair not always perfectly coiffed, and nails rarely manicured.  Their homes may not be camera-ready, their meals probably aren't gourmet, and talking points aren't ready on their tongues.  But mostly, the issue is that they don't believe in abortion and they do believe in the sanctity of marriage.

I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar, Just not at the Olympics.  Helen Reddy sang a Grammy Award-winning hit in 1972 called "I Am Woman," an ode to the newly blossomed feminist movement. [...] Remember a time when major sporting competitions, like the Olympic Games, separated men from women, perhaps not in the Olympic Village, but on the track, in the pool, and in the gym.  One time, this was commonsensical as men and women differ greatly in terms of size, strength, and power due to a hormone called testosterone, abundant in growing boys, but not so in girls, leading to higher bone density, larger muscle mass, and more efficient power generation.  In last week's Olympic Trials, these differences were quite evident.

Women Want to Know Why Men Don't Want to Marry Anymore... Allow Me.  [Scroll down]  Thanks to the design of the female brain, women have trouble having a thought without attaching an emotion to it.  They're more likely to feel their thoughts than men are, and what's more, they're more likely to be expressive about it. [...] But there's a hitch.  In today's society, emotion is increasingly valued over logistical thinking.  Especially for women, the pitfalls are numerous.  "Your truth" is pushed over THE truth.

Stop Tearing Down Men.  It's Father's Day weekend.  Here in Idaho, the women just finished an annual women's-only bike ride that attracts participants from around the world.  At one point, I contacted them on social media to ask if there was a particular reason that this event always falls on Father's Day weekend.  That seems an appropriate opportunity to celebrate fathers and not commit them to observe a female-only charitable event.  There are fifty-two weekends in the year, so selecting this one feels intentional.  The response I received was a matter of mere coincidence and availability — but my inclination is that this is just an extension of the pervasive culture that seeks to stifle a celebration of manhood.

Progressive white women are crazy because the left makes them that way.  One of the things I couldn't help but notice during the BLM protests last year was the fact that deeply distraught, hysterically angry white women seemed to be taking the lead in many of the protests.  It turns out that I may have been on to something.  A women's publication called Evie has caught up with the fact that a study from last year found that over half of white, Democrat women have been diagnosed at one time or another with a mental health problem.  I'm not at all surprised.

How the Transgender Movement is Destroying Feminism.  In 2005, I published a book with the title The Death of Feminism.  I saw it all coming.  But I did not foresee the rise of a transgender movement.  On March 31st, an allegedly feminist Open Letter Supporting Trans Women and Girls, was circulated.  Among other things, it stated that "We acknowledge with clarity and strength that transgender women are women and that transgender girls are girls.  And we believe that honoring the diversity of women's experiences is a strength, not a detriment to the feminist cause."  Interestingly, there is absolutely no mention of trans men — those who were born female but who have or want to become male.  As we now know, there is an alarming spike among teenage girls in America who hope to solve their teenage sorrows such as low self-esteem, body image discomfort, trauma based on sexual violence, eating disorders, psychiatric suffering, etc., by cutting off their breasts, surgically removing their uteri and ovaries, and taking potentially lethal hormones to prevent puberty, and to grow facial hair and muscle.

Biden has a strange theory about women and men.  The mere fact that someone like Joe Biden has survived for 48 years in American politics, never mind that he's now occupying the Oval Office, is a testament to the overall degradation of American politics.  But while he was once merely a dishonest dullard and a political panderer, Biden has now departed entirely from reality.  His latest lunatic pronouncement is that women are not just the equal of men, they are better than men... in everything.

Joe is on the outer limits of feminism.
Biden: 'There's Not A Single Thing A Man Can Do That A Woman Can't Do As Well Or Better'.  President Joe Biden claimed during a White House event on Wednesday that there is nothing that a man can do that a woman can't do just as well or better.  Biden made the remarks in the South Court Auditorium at an event marking Equal Pay Day.  There's a lot to do, but together we can ensure that our daughters have all the same rights and opportunities as our sons," Biden said.  "And if we're able to do this, it'll be transformational for our nation.  That's the goal.  That's what this is all about.  That's what this team, all of you, are all about."  "Let me make one more point.  You know, I've told my daughters, granddaughters from the time they [were] old enough to understand what I was saying — and I mean it:  There's not a single thing a man can do that a woman can't do as well or better," Biden continued.  "Not a single thing."

U.S. Army Considers Reversing 'Gender Neutral Physical Test' After Majority Of Women Fail To Keep Up With Men:  Report.  The United States Army is reportedly considering doing away with its new "gender-neutral physical test" after test results showed that the majority of women failed while approximately 90 percent of men passed.  Officials are reportedly considering having different evaluation categories for men and women due to the physiological differences between the two.  "Research showed that the Army Combat Fitness Test [ACFT], which is the same for male and female soldiers, was leading to lower results for women with a knock-on effect for promotions," The Telegraph reported.  "An early Pentagon study showed that women were failing the ACFT at a rate of 65 percent, while only 10 percent of men did."  A report from last fall found that 54 percent of women failed the test while only 7 percent of men failed it.

Leftists' inconsistencies are catching up with them.  The most obvious ideological clash within the Democrat party involves biological women and fake women (i.e., "transgender women"). Since the 1960s, the Democrats have owned the women's liberation movement and a significant part of the women's vote.  Democrats support abortion, "woymn's" and "womxn's" studies, free birth control and sanitary products, compulsory equal representation of women on corporate boards, and so much more.  Democrats were going to elect the first woman president (Hillary) and will soon sneak in a woman into the Oval Office via the back door (Harris). And of course, Democrats are the party of "believe all women."  However, Democrats are proving to be a radically anti-women party with their Equality Act.  This Act explicitly "prohibits an individual from being denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual's gender identity." It also mandates that "gender identity" is not a barrier to "public accommodations and facilities, education, federal funding, employment, [and] housing...."  In other words, biological men, simply by saying they are women, will have full access to women's restrooms, locker rooms, prisons, battered women's shelters, athletic competitions, women-only business opportunities, athletic scholarships, etc.  The bill is an invitation for rape and other physical abuse.

'Feminists' Gush Over Hillary's 'Dignity and Class Through the Last Four Years', Get Instant Reality Check.  There were [...] a lot of infuriatingly annoying things Republicans were subjected to over the last four years from the mainstream media and Democrats.  One of the big ones was their constant revisionism on all things Hillary Clinton.  Leading the charge was the failed Democratic presidential nominee herself, who proclaimed as loudly and often as possible in interview after interview and speech after speech that President Trump "stole" the 2016 election from her and that she would have won in a landslide had it not been for the (non-existent) Trump/Russia collusion.  Mrs. Clinton was never challenged by the left-wing media on these claims.

Sorry, Pelosi:  Eliminating official use of 'mother' isn't inclusive — it's waging war on women.  One of the first acts of our new House of Representatives might be to cancel Mom.  On Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Democratic majority proposed to eliminate "father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister" and all other language deemed insufficiently "gender-inclusive" from House rules.  They would be replaced with terms like "parent, child, sibling, parent's sibling" and so on.  "Mother" — among the most important concepts in human life — would be erased from the lexicon of the US House of Representatives.  It's important to recognize how radical this is.  And no, it isn't akin to updating federal law to replace "policeman" with "police officer," a rational corrective sought by feminists for generations.

The Rise of Gyno-Fascism.  [Scroll down]  The American left is now dominated by the types of females who think taking their husband's last name is a denial of their identity.  The men involved are either homosexuals or the sorts of male feminists who call their wife their "partner" and let them give the kids one of those ridiculous hyphenated last names.  The American left is dripping in estrogen.  In most of America, the things that one expects from government, like maintaining roads, are being ignored in favor of moral causes.  State officials present highly choreographed presentations to let us know how much they care, but can't be bothered to repair torn-up streets or broken-down schools.  Instead of big public-works projects, gyno-fascism puts all of its energy into making sure everyone feels needed and safe.

The Vilification of Conservative Women.  Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently wrote a book, The Mind of a Conservative Woman.  She told American Thinker, "Too many liberals, everyone is merely an economic unit, and every principle is one size fits all.  In one of my chapters, I discuss how mainstream media has misrepresented conservative women.  They, as with all women, are smart, focused, and want the best for everyone.  Yet the press says conservative women's voices do not deserve to be heard because they are pro-life, pro-military, pro-business, and pro-faith."

'Social Justice' Is Extortion.  The Mafia is not as good at extortion as "social justice" activists.  Feminists and race activists have successfully invoked moralism to demand preferences, special benefits, and power.  The legal cover for this extortion comes in the form of "affirmative action" and "diversity."  Feminists, under the guise of "equality," have striven to replace men and dominate in their place.  In this, they have been largely successful. [...] While they claim the high ground of "social justice," they are quite ready to use their power against men.  Accusations of "sexual harassment" or "rape" are sufficient, without evidence, to "cancel" a man.  Do not dare to deny a female whatever she wants, for a scorned female will cancel you.

Kamala Has Already Struck Out.  Even before the Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden, named his choice for vice president, a group of Democrat Party activists released an unprecedented document outlining their "rules" for how the media could address issues surrounding the woman Biden ultimately chose.  These guidelines made it abundantly clear that the media were "required" to handle Biden's choice with kid gloves.  Questions were not to be probing; instead, this veep candidate, unlike the vicious coverage Sarah Palin endured years ago, was to be above questioning.  With astounding hubris, the Democrats actually warned the media that they would "monitor coverage" of the female veep candidate and that anything even slightly critical would be condemned as "racist and sexist."  Hollywood celebrities and the usual line-up of leftist women's groups (NARAL, Planned Parenthood, etc.) have promised Kamala, "We've got your back."  Bottom line:  Biden is in hiding; Kamala is untouchable.  This mafia-style intimidation cannot be allowed to stand.

The Implosion of the Left's Language Circus.  [Scroll down]  "Me Too" is an Orwellian delusion because the movement for sex abuse victims was never to designed to support everyone who survived sex abuse.  Male victims of sex abuse fell out of the discussion almost immediately.  Females victimized by females vanished in deference to the lesbian community.  Even as MeToo charged ahead, the left pushed to legalize prostitution and infuse elementary education with provocative sexual material, paving the way for more exploitative situations.  As we saw with Tara Reade, women victimized by prized liberal males could be quickly dismissed as well.  The MeToo revolution elevated well-to-do professional women in high-profile fields like entertainment, finance, government, and academia, especially if the perpetrator was somebody rich, famous, and for whatever reason unpopular. [...] But MeToo also became a lopsided movement of females threatening males with legal action, police intervention, and public shaming.  Given our country's long history of terrorizing non-white men with excessive police force, criminalization, and charges of menacing white women, MeToo was bound to produce white Karens calling cops on black men.

How White Educated Female Liberals Are Destroying the Culture.  Many of us recognize that white, educated, liberal women are becoming the enemy of any remnants of traditional culture.  Over the last few years, these white, guilt-ridden women have become a force for promoting identity politics and the demonization of men.  One does not see this more than in the professions of human behavior and mental health.  As an East coast therapist, I have heard stories about microaggressions concerning race, sexual orientation, and sexual identity.  For those of us who do not subscribe to this increasingly fanatical, Orwellian creed, we either self-isolate or are ostracized.  The silence of dissenting voices is the mandate of these Left-wing females.

Kangaroo Nation.  The premise behind much of the protesting we hear in our time from women, African Americans, gays, and other groups granted the special status of being in the minority (how that applies to women, who make up more than half of the population, is hard to see), is that they are to be believed when they tell their stories of oppression.  Nay, more.  Even to express a doubt in any specific case is tantamount to violence.  One might say, in the case of women — who, with the obvious and important exception of rape, are much less likely than men to be the victim of every single category of violent crime — that the very claim is a sort of wish-fantasy, salt to an insipid life, so that they may see themselves as actresses in a drama of high meaning and great danger.  Be that as it may, the premise is nonsense.  When one speaks the truth, one wants to be heard, but one does not cry out, "Believe me, or else!"

A Bunch Of 'Karens' - Why Are Female High Profile Democrats So Miserable, Angry And Hate-Filled?  Let[']s take a look at some of the most high profile women in the news these days.  Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer:  Dubbed by critics as "wHitler," due to her over-the-top tyrannical lockdown orders, as well as her power trip by continuing to extend the forced Medical Martial Law practices in her state.  Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, has consistently showed her preference for thuggery, allowing Portland Oregon to be controlled by Antifa (quite often) while cops are forced to stand down and simply watchcrimes committed and has generally has allowed anarchists to rule. [...] Others include New Mexico Governor Laura Grisham for her forced lockdowns, hiteresque type attitude during the COVID-19 shutdowns, and Maine Governor Janet Mills, highly criticized for her mandated restrictions, to the point of the staes' Republicans want to impeach her.  Kansas Governor, Laura Kelly vetoed a bill which limits on her powers of tyranny during COVID-19 lockdown.  Other female liberal politicians that come to mind when thinking about shrill, socialistic, angry women, included but are not limited to: [...]

Don't Let The Left's 'Believe All Women' Word Game Distract From Their Glaring Hypocrisy.  As the Joe Biden sexual assault allegation receives almost no mainstream media coverage in a contentious election year, and conservatives implore onlookers to reflect on the guilty-until-proven-innocent standard Democrats established during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, a New York Times opinion still manages to frame the scenario as a "right-wing trap."  "Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, and conservatives are having a field day, exultant that they've caught feminists in a new hypocrisy trap," laments author Susan Faludi.

Feminists Who Now Claim They Never Meant 'Believe All Women' Are Gaslighting Us.  The emergence of Tara Reade's accusation of sexual assault against presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden has prompted the swift and sudden collapse of the #MeToo movement's central tenet — that all women who come forward with such allegations deserve to be believed.  In fact, some who speak for the movement aren't merely retreating on this point:  They are pretending that feminists who wielded the #MeToo hashtag never claimed that all women should be believed.  This is a transparent attempt to rewrite history and should be treated as such.  For a perfect example, see the journalist Susan Faludi in The New York Times:  "'Believe All Women' Is a Right-Wing Trap," reads the headline on her article.  Faludi accuses conservatives of inventing the idea that feminists were demanding that all women be believed.

MeToo movement loses its religion.  The movement that set the boundaries of what appropriate male/female interactions look like and finally held men accountable for crossing that line lost its righteousness this week.  Few social crusades have been as impactful as the #MeToo movement.  Powerful men in all sectors were brought down by accusations of sexual impropriety, many without a semblance of due process.  But this past week some of the leading feminist figures in the nation lined up to endorse Joe Biden for president or to defend him against charges nearly identical to those used to crucify other men, most notably Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Funny How Joe Biden's Woman-Assaulting Allegations Aren't News.  The #MeToo movement is finally here and at a long last, powerful and lecherous men are going to be held to account for their dastardly deeds against women!  Or maybe not.  It turns out that the #MeToo movement was all another sham designed to destroy the lives and careers of elected Republicans and one icky Hollywood movie mogul.  When women started speaking up and it turned out that most of the men being accused were liberals and elected Democrats, the movement suddenly started to fizzle.

Joe Biden, Brett Kavanaugh and the #MeToo hypocrites.  Hand it to The New York Times to take up the question of Tara Reade's sexual-abuse accusations against Joe Biden ... on Easter weekend, with its reduced holiday readership, in an article that does its best to minimize her charges.  It's in stark contrast to the way the Times and its fellows treated the even thinner claims against Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.  And it underlines the hypocrisy of the "believe all women" double standard.

The Great Madness.  As has been noted too many times to count, the West is now a gynocracy.  It is not a matriarchy, as women have stopped bearing children and stopped caring about children.  Look around and you see childless women in positions of authority all over the West.  In fact, these are women who reached their status by rejecting every aspect of womanhood.  The West is now a world run by middle-aged childless women.  Anyone who has been around women in a crisis has observed a strange phenomenon among childless adult females.  Some switch gets flipped in a crisis where their protective instincts get misdirected at the adults in the room.  This part of their nature was never allowed to mature in the raising of children, so it comes bursting forth in an incoherent desire to help when their help is not needed.

Students at famed women's college:  Stop calling us 'women'.  A staff editorial in the Wellesley News bemoans the popular on-campus catchphrases such as "Wellesley sisters," "Women Who Will," and "Wellesley women," and asks that instead there be a more concerted effort to use gender-neutral language all around. [...] The editorial also criticized Wellesley's transgender policy, which accepts students who were born male but identify as female, but not students who were born female but identify as male.  It described the five-year-old policy as complacent and neglectful of the transgender and nonbinary community, and called on administration to revise it, as well as "usher in a more inclusive language standard for official communications.  Additionally, we ask students to reflect these changes in their everyday lives in order to foster a more kind, empathetic environment."

America Isn't Sexist — Female Democratic Candidates Are Just Awful People.  We're supposed to treat female candidates as equals with males but if one should come up short we infantilize her and say that she was "punished."  Such is the ceaselessly wearisome nature of identity politics.

Don't Revive the ERA.  The House of Representatives voted this month to begin the process of reviving the Equal Rights Amendment, a constitutional effort dating to 1923 and first passed by Congress in 1973. [...] Though supported unanimously by House Democrats, the law remains procedurally suspect.  The Department of Justice has stated its intent to prevent the U.S. Archivist from including the ERA in the Constitution, should it secure enough votes, because of the expired ratification deadline.  Meantime, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — despite her support for the ERA, in principle — said that proponents need "a new beginning" beyond the 1982 deadline.  "There's too much controversy about latecomers," she added, urging proponents to start the process over.  Yet supporters keep contorting laws and flouting precedent to defend their cause, arguing, in effect, that America can never actually reject a constitutional amendment.  In late January, Virginia joined Nevada and Illinois to support the ERA, in theory securing the required number of states needed to adopt the proposed Twenty-Eighth Amendment.

Feminists Created the Monster Now Devouring Women's Sports.  [Scroll down]  They ought to point the finger at Equality Dogma, at whose altar moderns worship and which has been preached, incessantly, to advance an agenda.  The idea was that if you could convince people the sexes were basically equal in worldly capacities, no one would think there was any reason to keep women out of what traditionally had been male realms.  Voila!  Goodbye, discrimination!  This was convenient when girls/women wanted to join police forces and fire departments, enter military academies such as the Citadel or Virginia Military Institute, join boys' sports teams and Little League, and previously all-male clubs.  It's not so convenient now that the thinking is being taken closer to its logical conclusion.  But the point is this:  If because the sexes "are basically equal in capacities" there's no reason to keep women out of men's arenas, there's also no reason to keep men out of women's arenas.  In fact, not only is this turnabout an imperative of equality, there isn't even a good reason to have separate, sex-specific arenas in the first place.

What Really Makes Democrats and Republicans Different.  The Democratic Party today embraces sharia-compliant females — à la Brooklyn's Linda Sarsour and Minnesota's Ihlan Omar — along with hyper-feminists and LBGT constituencies.  The Democrats also embrace expansive abortion rights and seem to be moving to the point of legalizing abortion up to the minute of birth.  New York State has legalized such a broad definition.  Ironically, Islamic countries and culture are notoriously restrictive with abortion and lethal to any LBGTs who fall into their hands.  So why would practicing Muslims, such as Mmes.  Sarsour and Omar, attach themselves to the Democratic Party?  How do the two of them reconcile Islamic culture's honor killing, repression of sexuality, and mutilation of women with the Democratic Party's acceptance of sexual deviance?  Likewise, how does the Democratic Party reconcile these ladies' embrace of a retrograde creed?

Ayanna Pressley: 'American Constitution Is Sexist By Its Very Design,' Women 'Still Shackled'.  Far-left Democratic Representative Ayanna Pressley (MA) declared on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday that women are "still shackled" and not "free" in the United States because the U.S. Constitution is "sexist by its very design."  "The year is 2020 and here we women are still in so many ways not fully free, still shackled," Pressley said.

The Editor says...
How odd.  A Member of Congress is wailing about how tough her life is, claiming that (all) women are "shackled."  The shackles must have made it really difficult to run for Congress.

We Have Miseducated Boys and Girls Alike.  [Scroll down]  Why wouldn't a culture that worships promiscuous sex send the message to young men that their entire value revolves around sex?  And consider the stated — and hidden — messages that young men get every day:  Women should be able to sleep with as many men as possible.  (Your girlfriend won't be faithful to you.)  Divorce should be easy.  (If your own father left and you're hurt by that, who cares?  Men won't stay in a marriage.  You shouldn't expect to stay in a marriage.)  Dads are "deadbeats" or buffoons.  (Mothers are more important than fathers.)  Abortion is a constitutional right, and men should have no say.  (Your children shouldn't mean anything to you.  They can be destroyed whether you want that or not.  You don't matter.)  It isn't that every negative, oppressive trend affecting American boys is an after-effect of the sexual revolution.  Some problems Orenstein mentions — difficulty expressing emotions; fear of failure; "jock culture," with its bullying and vicious coaches — have been around much longer.

The sad death of the Femocrats.  Elite women Democrats have faced a brutal reckoning over the past five years.  It seemed, as Barack Obama might have put it, that the arc of history was bending in their direction.  Half the electorate are female, and feminist identity politics seemed the natural destination for America's progressive party.  It hasn't worked out that way.

Record Low Turnout Expected For D.C. Women's March.  The Women's March is set to take place on Saturday [1/18/2020].  Some wintry weather is expected to dampen turnout at the fourth annual event being held in the nation's capital.  Much like the current crop of Democratic candidates, the various activists and affiliates that once participated in the demonstration have recently begun turning on one another, as any coalition of radical leftists tends to do. [...] After years of infighting and anti-Semitic controversies, three of the four co-chairs parted ways with the group in Sep. 2019.  The national women's organization was previously led by a small contingent of New York-based radical activists, who were accused, shockingly, of not representing the interests of women nationwide.  In July, a new group of board members who hail from different parts of the country were chosen to lead the group.  The fourth co-chair, a so-called Latina activist who organizes against mass incarceration, stayed on board.

Feminism as Gender Terrorism:  The Mortal Vendetta Against the Male Sex.  Egyptian-American feminist Mona Eltahawy is in the news again, having gone on record suggesting the weekly "culling" of men.  She calls this an imaginary scenario, but it is nonetheless hateful and an obvious incentive to homicidal violence. [...] While we should not put it past a crazed feminist to pull the trigger or wield the blade, the issue of incentivized violence against men in the social, cultural, professional and economic realms of activity is by no means imaginary or simply a one-off.  For there is more than one way of culling, apart from murder.

The Lonely, Delusional World of Feminist Literature.  A few years ago, as the country entered into all-out post-election warfare, I decided to distract myself with non-political interests.  I loved literature and longed to encounter wonderful writers exploring the complex terrain of love, life, and art.  Instead, as I perused literary magazines online, I fell down another rabbit hole:  the gender politics-obsessed world of mostly female MFA graduates who edit and publish on these sites.  Their essays are so bad that they are good.  The writings emanate from young women inspired by a movement sporting [...] hats and [...] costumes.  The authors themselves often sound lonely, miserable, and endlessly fixated on unhealed childhood wounds.  But no worries:  They have a scapegoat.  Trump and the patriarchy are all to blame.

4 Feminist Lies That Are Making Women Miserable.  Twenty years ago, I wrote my first book about why women can't "have it all," or at least all at once, despite what the culture tells them.  (Hint:  It's because no one, male or female, can perform two full-time jobs simultaneously without the bottom falling out.)  At the time, the so-called Mommy Wars were raging.  Women everywhere who'd been sold a bill of goods by their feminist mothers and mentors were either lamenting the futility of being able to successfully work full-time outside the home while maintaining a healthy marriage and family life, or they were defending their choice to work full-time by insisting children do fine in round-the-clock substitute care.  Since then, the messages to women about how to have a happy life — as it relates to love and sex, work and family — have merely served to make women miserable.

Democrats Must Really Hate Women.  Have you noticed that the #MeToo movement is dead to Democrats these days?  Democrat representative Katie Hill had an affair with a staffer, a violation of the core concept of #MeToo that bosses can't have sexual relations with subordinates, and Democrats are bemoaning the fact that she had to resign.  How can that be?  That's because they never really believed in #MeToo, and they never cared about women.  Democrat support for #MeToo was nothing more than a ploy to attack Trump and other Republicans.

Female Offenders:  Perpetrators, Predators, and Pedophiles.  In the United States, women constitute a small fraction of total crime offenders, approximately 5% of burglary suspects to about 30% of fraud and forgery offenders. [...] There are unexplored caverns of depravity where the scales become more balanced and women find themselves successful criminals:  sex crimes and human-trafficking.  Despite this, researchers barely study this phenomenon, therefore media and society still portray women as the victims and men as the perpetrators, virtually always.  Female criminals are disproportionately outnumbered by male criminals except in cases of human-trafficking, when the perpetrators' genders become pretty equal.  In regions of the world where human-trafficking is the highest, women are actually the majority of offenders.

The New Masculinity:  Turning Men Into Women.  In case you've been living under a rock or been trapped deep inside an ultra-leftist bubble, allow me to enlighten you.  There is a definite, concerted, war on gender in our society today.  And if you had even the slightest doubt about it, look no further than the November edition of GQ magazine.

The MeToo Revolution Eats Its Own.  Katie Hill is suffering the fate of a feminist who could handle feminism's rhetoric but not its arbitrary rigor.  The same feminism that tells women they can "do whatever they want with their bodies" didn't like what Katie Hill was doing with hers, as she cavorted with female and male staffers.  The new rules of feminism, which include prohibitions on office sex, require a level of discipline Katie Hill's let's-try-everything, sexually omnivorous generation is incapable of upholding.  To the Katie Hills, today's feminism is a cruel paradox, espousing the moral philosophy of lechers while turning rule-making and ethics inquiries over to prudes.  For decades the Left's whole moral education has consisted of teaching virtue-signaling without virtue.  But now suddenly the rules governing professional bodies grow ever more strict, thus hoisting liberalism's pupils by its own petard.

Where are the feminists on Katie Hill?  Freshman Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, who sits on a House committee trying to impeach President Trump, and has been called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "new favorite," has been in office less than a year and already we know too much about her.  It's not merely the naked pictures, actually, though yes, one wonders why someone like her would stand there buck naked and maybe ask for someone to take a snap to share that precious memory.  It's that she's an exploiter.  And with an emerging pattern of that coming into play, nobody in the all-Democrat feminist industrial complex is saying a thing.

Young Adults Fed Up with SJW and LGBTQ Tyranny.  The new "Batwoman" TV series featuring an openly lesbian Batwoman is failing big-time.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that young adults are turned off by the show's extreme woke and SJW (social justice warrior) politically correct messaging.  "Woke" means you are aware of social and racial injustice.  "Woke" also means straight white men are the source of all evil and must be punished.  Women and minorities are perfect in every way.  Woke culture says anyone who dares criticize a woman or a minority hates women and minorities.  Batman fans are outraged over the "Batwoman" TV series trashing Batman and its in-your-face trashing of men.

In other words, it's a "made for TV" movie.  Just about every Saturday afternoon filler movie on TV is a man-bashing chick flick, peppered with man-bashing commercials.

Why Does NBC News Executive Andy Lack Still Have A Job?  Ronan Farrow's new book "Catch and Kill" reveals new allegations of sexual misconduct against NBC News chief Andrew Lack, whom Farrow also accused of spiking his Harvey Weinstein story while at NBC.  At the height of the Me Too movement in 2017, men in powerful positions were black-balled, fired, and excommunicated at the mere mention of an allegation, even without corroborating evidence.  But unlike those men, Lack's employer is standing behind him, and he's refusing to go anywhere.

Feminist Backlash After Sanitary Pad Company Caves to Trans-Activists.  Women and several prominent feminists have called for a boycott of Always sanitary pads after it was revealed that the company decided to remove a female symbol from their products amidst pressure from transgender activists groups.  An 18-year-old British trans activist named Ben Saunders complained to Procter & Gamble (P&G), the maker of Always sanitary pads, saying that not everyone who menstruates identifies as female.

Always removes feminine symbols because 'not everyone who has a period identifies as female'.  Procter & Gamble's Always feminine hygiene brand announced it is removing feminine symbols from its packaging in the name of inclusivity.  "For over 35 years Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so," the company said in a statement to The Independent.  "We're also committed to diversity and inclusion, and after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female."  The decision comes after transgender activists criticized the company for including the feminine Venus symbol on its packaging.

When Men Kill Themselves Over Unproven Allegations, Me Too Has Gone Too Far.  Me Too started with a hashtag, then morphed into a trend of public humiliation, trial by media, and personal boycotts that altered the standards by which a person is judged.  Initially the movement was used to take down chronic abusers of women who had been using their power and influence to silence complaints.  As the movement picked up steam, private sexual encounters became fair game.  Many of the Me Too infractions that came to light aren't criminal offenses, and much of the shaming has been against non-public figures.

Elizabeth Warren's war on men is an insulting, losing strategy.  Elizabeth Warren made the political calculation this week that she doesn't need men to win the presidency.  "We're not here today because of famous arches or famous men," she told a rally in Washington Square Park Monday night [9/16/2019].  "In fact, we're not here because of men at all," she said, emphasizing the "m" word like an expletive.  Great.  Then she won't mind if men don't vote for her, nor women who like men.  It's a losing strategy, taken straight out of the playbook of Hillary Clinton, from whom, reportedly and inexplicably, Warren has been taking advice.

Where have all the heroes gone?  [Scroll down]  Into this alarming environment comes TV fare showcasing the idea that women aren't as good as men, but better.  Computer hackers, car-jackers, detectives, doctors, lawyers, spaceship commanders — all better than their male counterparts.  And they can fight!  Little bitty women with toothpick arms beat up whole gangs of muscular male brutes with square jaws and hairy bellies.  In the next scene, these gals turn on the charm in scanty evening gowns as the guys line up panting.  I don't watch the comic book flicks where the female hero with exaggerated curves, dressed to bring these assets into unmissable relief, beats up the worst villains in the universe, but it's hard to escape the ads.  Gotta be quick on the remote.  The point, among others, is that the male hero has all but disappeared from the cultural scene.

How Feminist Social Justice Warriors are Killing Men.  I have said time and time again, that feminism is akin to cancer on the world.  Some will undoubtedly question my views on feminism; I agree that first wave, and even to a point second wave feminism did good things for woman and equality.  The right to vote, wear clothes we feel comfortable in, and the ability to work outside the home to name a few.  As third wave feminism desperately needs to embrace a cause in order to stay both relevant and valid in the eyes of society, femimists have doubled down on men in general.  They denounce "the patriarchy," the imaginary world that has men running everything and secretly holding women back from certain careers and advancement in the workplace.  They even claim an imaginary wage gap is a problem.  However, none of this exists in reality.

Sotomayor, Angela Davis formally inducted into National Women's Hall of Fame.  Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and civil rights icon Angela Davis were formally inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame on Saturday [9/14/2019]. The hall honored them and eight other women — Actress Jane Fonda, Native American lawyer Sarah Deer, retired Air Force fighter pilot Nicole Malachowski, suffragist and cartoonist Rose O'Neill, New York Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, composer Laurie Spiegel, and AIDS researcher Flossie Wong-Staal — in Seneca Falls, New York, the site of the 1848 women's rights convention.

Gillette 'Shifting Spotlight from Social Issues' After Anti-Masculinity Ad Disaster.  Shaving company Gillette says it is "shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes," after the company's brief foray into the SJW-style demonization of masculinity drew a massive backlash from customers.  The company landed itself in hot water last year when it ran a #MeToo-themed ad borrowing language from far-left anti-male feminists, depicting the abuse of women by men and encouraging male Gilette customers to "shave their toxic masculinity."

SUNY Women's Studies Staffer:  Milking Cows Is 'Sexual Assault'.  A new research paper published last week by a staff member of the women's studies department at SUNY Brockport makes the case that the dairy industry's production process involves the "rape" and "sexual assault" of cows.  According to a report by Campus Reform, a staff member of the women's studies department at The College at Brockport, State University of New York argued in a recently published academic journal article that the production of milk on farms is akin to "rape" and "sexual assault.

Feminism Is Working Overtime to Destroy Film.  Hollywood is thrusting women into the limelight as writers, directors, and film leads for big-budget productions at levels we've never seen before, seemingly to satisfy the woke mobs who are demanding it.  But how has that all worked out for Hollywood?  To state the obvious, Hollywood has been in trouble for years now.  The entertainment market has become saturated with much cheaper and more convenient, quality entertainment on streaming services, making a movie night at home much more attractive for couples and families than spending $50 or more on tickets, drinks, and snacks, all the while hoping for an evening where other raucous moviegoers don't ruin the experience.

Scarlett Laughs.  [Scroll down]  The great auteurs of the 1970s used women as props, either victims or vixens.  The '70s women were plot devices, not fully developed characters.  I grew up in the '70s, with only two kinds of Hollywood women.  They were either murder victims or prostitutes; unless they were prostitutes getting murdered.  With the exception of a certain princess from Alderaan, as a teenager, I never saw a strong woman on the big screen.  In contrast, when I'd watch movies on the old movie channel, there were reporters, businesswomen, army nurses, even scientists.  I was told again and again, that women of the 1930s were oppressed and women of the 1970s were liberated.  But the old movie channel told a very different story.

America's Detour from Sanity.  Up until about 1960, children that were not orphans had fathers and mothers living together in a nest secured with bonds of love and civil rules inspired by God.  That life is sacred was taken as fact, not opinion.  Women were cherished and respected by men who were brought up to be gentlemen.  You did not require a high IQ to know that a man could never be the equal of a woman, and vice-versa.  Respecting each other's real differences, both sexes would laugh at the ridiculous notion that male and female are interchangeable, either in function or psyche.  Such a claim, as made by post-Friedan feminists, reveal a mind tangled in abstractions and lost in wish lists.

Modern Feminism:  Today's fake movement is no longer about women.  Unfortunately, as can happen with almost every revolutionary social change, the modern feminism has been captured and radicalized by the American left.  The left customarily takes over such positive movements by force, ousts incumbent leadership.  The leftists then "fundamentally transform" these movements into ideological tools geared toward promoting their Marxist aims rather than the movements' original goals.  And that's exactly what happened to modern feminism in America in the latter half of the twentieth century.  It has been transformed into a key, divisive element of left-wing extremism.  Even worse, today's edition of this arguably fake feminism thrives on two highly dubious and divisive aims.  Hatred of men, and an embrace of abortion on demand, anytime, anywhere.

If someone had told me this in 1972, it would have saved me a lot of trouble.
A third of women only date men because of the free food: study.  A new study published Friday [6/21/2019] in the Society for Personality and Social Psychology journal found that a quarter to a third of heterosexual women have gone on a date with a guy they weren't interested in — just for a free meal.  "Foodie calls," can happen when money's tight, the grocery store is out of a favorite frozen meal, or a must-try entree is just too extravagant to justify — when the tab comes out of your own bank account.

Why Gillibrand Is the Most Vapid Clown in the Car.  Although Gillibrand postures as a #MeToo activist, she has openly tolerated remarkable anti-female abuse in her own office, where she disregarded several women's complaints and pleas to deal with one of Gillibrand's closest long-time staffers, who repeatedly told "rape jokes" in the office, intimidated women sexually, and created a profoundly hostile workplace environment for women.  Only after a woman staffer resigned over the severe and persistent abuse, and the story then broke in Politico, did Gillibrand act to contain the political fallout.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Bombshell the Media Refuse to Handle.  The world media, except in the U.S., are awash in the depressing, deplorable, and disturbing revelations about Martin Luther King, Jr.  David J. Garrow, King's friendly and liberal official biographer, revealed up to 45 sexual encounters by King and the observation of and encouragement by King of the rape of a church member by her pastor — all supported by FBI surveillance tapes.  One FBI memo reported, "King maintains intimate relationships with at least three women, one in Atlanta, one in Mt Vernon, New York, and one in Washington, DC," making him susceptible to blackmail.  He also had a longtime mistress in Los Angeles, wife of a dentist, in addition to his many one-night stands.  It goes on and on.

Candace Owens Blasts the Scam of Feminism in a Passionate TPUSA Speech.  Candace Owens kicked off Turning Point USA's Young Women's Leadership Summit Thursday afternoon [6/6/2019] and blasted the "scam" of feminism during a passionate speech.  Candace Owens gave the audience of young women a brief background on her past as a liberal Democrat.  It was a college course — Feminism 101 — that made her realize that feminism was not for her.  The "BLEXIT" founder argued that feminism — once a good thing — has been hijacked by the left.  [Video clip]

Dems Revise History Regarding the 19th Amendment.  If you know the history of the 19th Amendment, you will notice a peculiar omission from the statements issued by various Democrats celebrating the 100th anniversary of its passage by Congress.  Elizabeth Warren, for example, tweeted:  "People always say that big change is impossible.  That's what they told the suffragettes — but they got organized, persisted, & 100 years ago today, the Senate passed the 19th Amendment to give women the right to vote."  What Warren conveniently forgets is that the people who said it was "impossible" were Democrats.  Her party blocked passage of the amendment from 1878, when it was introduced by the Republicans, until the latter won such huge majorities in the 1918 midterms that the Democrats were no longer able to deny women justice.

UN report:  Female AI voices like 'Alexa' perpetuate harmful gender stereotypes.  Female default voices for artificial intelligence personal assistants may inadvertently reinforce gender stereotypes, according to a study published by United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  Default female voices for the devices, as well as names like Alexa and Siri, may precondition users toward antiquated views of women, according to the study.  UNESCO also found assistants rarely have safeguards against abuse and gendered language.  For example, Siri will respond to being told to make the user a sandwich with "I can't.  I don't have any condiments," according to the study.  Insulting Siri prompts only the response "I'd blush if I could," which is the title of the report.

I wouldn't have one of those voice-activated "assistants" in my house if you gave it to me.  If you have one, it's obviously listening to everything you say, waiting for the trigger word that supposedly wakes it up.  If you personify such a gadget and start saying nasty things to it, you've got a few screws loose; however, you can bet that somewhere at Amazon or Google, they're keeping track of every vulgar thing you've said, just in case you run for office someday.

"Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops."

Why Suburban Women Deserve The Truth Even If The Left Denies Them The Access.  Suburban women aren't monolithic.  One of the more infuriating observations about researching how suburban women voted in 2012-2018 is the way the press, in general, would broad brush the demo.  The New York Times et al would have you believe that they are universally college educated (read that: elitist) and that because they are, their voice (when siding with progressive candidates) must be given credence.  Hardly a mention goes by without referring to the importance they reserve for health care (read that: legal abortion) and how they will bear down with fury any time it is messed with.  This ignores the fact that pretty much every major pro-life activist organization is headed by women.  One group specifically, Concerned Women For America, not only has a much larger constituency than the National Organization for Women, but is the single largest pro-woman group in the nation.

Battling climate change does not empower women around the world — electricity does.  When the much-ballyhooed Green New Deal came before the Senate — shortly before its anticlimactic demise — Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono waxed poetic about climate change as an agent of women's oppression. [...] The key to liberating women from oppression isn't quixotic combat against a climate that has always changed and will always change.  The real key is access to reliable, affordable, and abundant energy.  Without electricity, daily tasks necessary for living such as cooking, gathering water, and caring for children require tedious, hard labor — labor that falls almost exclusively to wives, mothers, and daughters.

MeToo Backfire Worse Than Originally Predicted And Sets Feminism Back Decades.  [Scroll down]  As soon as the media started conflating those accusing Weinstein of actual physical and sexual assault, with those that he just "hit on," but never touched, labeling them all "victims," many saw the danger of what soon became the #MeToo movement.  The quote above from the Economist says that within 24 hours the #MeToo hashtag had 500,000 responses, and as someone that observed it in realtime, I noted that people were making accusations, naming men, with absolutely no proof or confirmation, in some cases quite literally ruining a man's career on the basis of nothing more than some random woman making a claim of some type of sexual "misconduct," and slapping the hashtag #MeToo on it, sending online mobs to attack him.  No police report, no evidence, no trial, no judge, no jury, just guilty until proven innocent, the exact opposite of how America's justice system is supposed to work.

The Simple Preschool-Level Question That No Leftist Can Answer.  For the last few weeks I have been trying with increasing desperation to get a leftist — any leftist — to answer one simple question:  what is a woman?  You'll notice that folks on the Left use the word "woman" quite a bit.  They make many claims about women.  They say that these creatures known as women have something called "women's rights."  They say that these rights are under attack.  They say that women are persecuted and disadvantaged by something called male privilege.  They say that women are the victims of a wage gap.  They say things like, "We need a woman President."  They also say that biological males can be women.  They say transwomen are women.  They say that someone can start out life as a male and transition into a woman.  They make many other claims in this vein.  But how can I understand any of these claims and declarations if I do not know what they mean by the word woman?

Linda Sarsour livid at 'white women,' says they 'uphold the patriarchy'.  Women's March leader Linda Sarsour is not happy with Georgia's "heartbeat bill" — or the percentage of "white women" who made it possible.  The activist who describes herself as "every Islamophobe's worst nightmare" told her nearly 300,000 Twitter followers this week that white women are to blame for the election of Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, the pro-life legislation he signed into law May 7, and feminists' ongoing struggle with "the patriarchy."

I am glad they won't have sex with men.  I am so glad that fear of pregnancy has spooked Alyssa Milano, 46, and Bette Midler, 73, from having sex with men because they might not be able to get an abortion if they wait too long in certain states.  My happiness stems from the fact that after all these years, these women are promoting abstinence and chastity.  Perhaps modesty will follow.

The least feminist country in the world is Denmark — it also happens to be the 2nd happiest country in the world.  A new poll reveals that Denmark is the least feminist country in the world.  While that may not necessarily be intriguing on its own, the fact that 2019's World Happiness Report finding that Denmark is also the second-happiest country in the world shows an interesting correlation.

Every Pronoun Must Go.  Two types of people desire to impose politically correct locutions on the rest of us:  those who possess unlimited power and fear to lose it and those who aspire to unlimited power and need a means to attain it.  And there is, after all, no greater power than that of prescribing what others must say and what others must not think.  The Scottish Maritime Museum, dedicated to the history of the country's shipbuilding industry, has decided that it will no longer use the words she and her to refer to ships, but rather it and its.  This is in response to feminists, who have defaced plaques referring to ships as she or her.  This change would negate centuries of tradition, during which the words traditionally used on launching a ship, "May God bless all who sail in her," carried no connotation of insult or deprecation — rather the reverse.

Maine legislators push to remove 'he' and 'him' from state's laws and replaced with gender-neutral terms.  A bill working its way up through Maine's state legislature Friday [4/26/2019] is calling for words like "he" and "him" to be scrubbed out of the wording of its laws — and instead be replaced with more gender-neutral terms.  Rep. Matt Moonen, a Democrat, says he wrote the bill after reading through laws and finding references to mostly male figures in positions of authority.  "The law still refers to the Governor as he, him (or) his, and I kept looking and was increasingly baffled, as I found more places where that is the case," he said, according to News Center Maine.

Living in Leftlandia.  [Scroll down]  They live in La-la Land, in Leftlandia, saturated in fantasies filled with pots of gold at the ends of LGBT rainbows.  They never touch down. [...] In Leftlandia, folks are comfortable with declaring women's rights with half their words and supporting Islam, with its wife-beating, woman-hating, girl-mutilating way of life, with the other.  They don't find it weird that Linda Sarsour, outspoken proponent of Sharia law, should be leading a women's rally.

Neomi Rao Is Right:  Women Shouldn't Get Blackout Drunk Around Men.  One of the weird tics of modern feminism is the idea that women are just as strong, capable and able as men, but should also be treated as helpless children who are incapable of taking care of themselves whenever it benefits them. [...] Sexual assault victims are not at fault because a rapist victimizes them, but does that mean women shouldn't take commonsense precautions to prevent themselves from being victims in the first place?

National Women's Hall of Fame may lose funding over induction of Jane Fonda.  After the National Women's Hall of Fame inducted actor Jane Fonda, the town that hosts the hall is considering pulling funding.  The hall of fame was established in 1969 in Seneca Falls, New York, where the first American women's rights convention was held in 1848.  In a draft resolution, Seneca Falls town supervisor Greg Lazzaro decried Fonda's 1972 visit to North Vietnam, during which she posed atop a Viet Cong anti-aircraft weapon, saying it was "derisive" and "universally condemned."

Children Don't Need 'Day Care For All,' They Need Their Mothers.  Democrats aim to nationalize not only the economy, but also families.  Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have both publicly endorsed socialized child care. [...] This is precisely the opposite of what American children need.  Most mothers do not want to work full time.  Inasmuch as any significant demand for a nationalized child-care entitlement exists, it is largely driven by father abandonment or incapacity.  Mother deprivation is not a sane response to a problem that largely exists due to father deprivation.  It can, in fact, only make things worse.  We can see this simply by using our common sense, but it is also backed up by plenty of research on government early childhood programs, family bonding, and childhood development.

You've Come a Long Way, Baby — or Have You?  For decades, even a century, American women have pushed to be allowed within formerly male-only precincts:  at the ballot box, in the Yankees' locker room, in sex-restricted clubs and even in the Boy Scouts.  They haven't made it into the NFL, the NBA or Major League Baseball just yet, but no doubt one of these teams is just itching to do something "historic" and break the gender line.  They've been allowed into the Navy, into combat roles in the Army and, alas, even the Marine Corps.  Naturally, physical standards have had to be effectively lowered, and female officers promoted beyond their physical and emotional capacities.  Many female sailors return home pregnant, but who cares?

Time's Up CEO resigns after her own son is accused of sexual assault.  Just three months after she took the job, the inaugural chief executive of Time's Up — an organization born of the #MeToo movement that advocates for safe and harassment-free workplaces — abruptly resigned after her own son was accused of sexual assault.  Lisa Borders notified Time's Up leadership last week of the allegations against her adult son.  Within 24 hours, she resigned as president and chief executive, according to a statement from the advocacy group.  In a joint statement with Time's Up, posted to their Instagram account Monday [2/18/2019], Borders said she was leaving.

The 5 Biggest Widely Accepted Lies in Politics.  [#3] You could make an argument that America is a matriarchy as a patriarchy:  As Rand Paul once said, "If there was a war on women, I think they won."  Many people point to the men on top, but percentage-wise, there are very few of them.  Meanwhile, men get longer jail sentences than women for the same crimes and make up the vast majority of homicide victims and combat deaths in the military.  In addition, women make up 56 percent of college students, women win 80 percent of the child custody cases, men kill themselves at four times the rate that women do, and on average, women live five years longer than men do.  To argue that we are living in a patriarchy where women get the short end of the stick, you have to ignore mountains of evidence that suggest the alternate conclusion.

Not 'All Americans' Are 'Proud That We Have More Women In The Workforce Than Ever Before'.  [B]oth the fact that there are more women in the workforce than ever before and the fact that Trump thought mentioning it would bring credit to his administration constitute a victory for the feminist left.  Getting women to leave home for the workplace has been one of the central goals of modern feminism.  Feminists deny this, claiming they don't prefer women work outside the home; they only want women to have the choice to do so.  But if that were true, why did congressional Democrats — the women in white, feminists all — jump up and cheer?  The answer is obvious:  Feminists consider women who eschew a career to take care of their home, their children and their husband to be less than women who place career first.  But even if one prefers that women work outside of the home, "All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before" is simply not true.  As feminists often note, many women work outside of the home not because they want to but because they have no choice:  They have to support themselves, their household and/or their children.

Women's March becomes a goose step.  The first Women's March, in January 2017, was a giant, boisterous success.  President Trump had just been inaugurated, and plenty of people were angry enough to take to the streets. [...] In 2019, it's a different story.  Left-liberal anger over the Trump presidency remains strong.  But the Women's March is in disarray, a darkened but diminished shadow of what it was only two years ago.  Only an estimated 665,324 [to] 735,978 people attended this year's demonstrations.  Perhaps thankfully, our Facebook feeds weren't filled with smiling women wearing pink hats and holding clever signs.  Something had happened.

The PMS Caucus.  Rather than demonstrate that women politicians on a combative national stage can govern in a sober and diplomatic way, female Democrats in Congress — don't call them ladies — unfortunately are playing into the very stereotypes that they claim to want to disprove.  They are moody, petulant, and impulsive.  When confronted about their bad ideas or egregious remarks, these Cycle Sisters rage about sexism and racism rather than respond in good faith.  They have profanity-laced temper tantrums and emotional breakdowns in public.  Their collective mood is so foul and unpredictable that one feels almost compelled to give them a box of chocolate donuts, a dose of Midol, and send them to bed with a heating pad.

Bunch of White Women Dressed in White  not applauding during talk of record minority employment — not a good look. [...] Well, they didn't stand for the minority employment, but the women stood for record employment of women.  Seems kinda ... selfish.

Democrats Just Can't Stop Playing Their 'Woman Card'.  Identity politics that is so widely promoted by the left, or the expectation of the certain groups divided on the basis on their gender, skin color, sexual orientation, etc., to vote blue, keeps failing.  It fails not because people are ignorant and can't see how Democrats champion their rights, — they don't! — but simply because most people refuse to embrace a victim mentality.  The #WalkAway campaign that encouraged people to leave the divisive Democratic Party was a stark example of it.  The left seems to be too stubborn to learn the lesson that it is not gender, race or any other "minority" card that wins the elections.

Gillette's Sexist Sermonizing to Men and Women.  So who is the mastermind at Gillette who came up with the idea that the best way to sell men's razors is to insult the customers with condescending liberal propaganda about "toxic masculinity"?  Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive "news" coverage?  Is online buzz the goal?  If so, it must also be Gillette's goal to have its customers rush over to the Schick display.  A century ago, Gillette ran ads in newspapers touting American soldiers of World War I using their product:  the "clean fighters" of the Allied forces "fighting for clean ideals."  They were "millions of big, strong-limbed super-men ... fighting to save Freedom."  Today, there are no strong-limbed men.  There are bullies and sexual harassers in need of castration.

Real Women Don't Need a Women's March.  Real women know how to handle toxic masculinity without feminist and radical lawyers organizing silly marches wearing pink pussy hats.  Real women were laughing at these so-called well-educated females who marched with disdain against the newly elected president whom many real women voted for.  Under the banner of women's rights many young women are marching in ignorance of history.  Women's rights were secured by real women in the 20th century.  The rights that today's feminists are fighting for are sheer evil; the rights to kill innocent full term unborn babies.  Looking over the vulgar signs at the women's marches across the nation and comparing them with the life affirming uplifting signs at the right to life march was not only illuminating but downright depressing.

Where Were The Females in the Gillette Commercial?  Political correctness now says that men are the enemy of society.  If you are a male that is masculine, then you need to become a recluse and step out of the way because you endanger the public according to the Left.  Traditional men are threatened in America.  Gillette used to sell razors and shaving cream.  Now, they exist to tell masculine men that they are chronic sexual harassers and bullies.  But Gillette forgot to put any women in the commercial.

Gillette Conveniently Overlooked the Real Toxic Masculinity.  Start with a former president, Bill Clinton, credibly accused of rape, impeached over perjury about sexual harassment, and carrying on an affair with a young White House intern.  Or his predecessor John Kennedy, with a string of affairs while president.  Perfect examples of the "sexual aggression" in the Urban Dictionary definition.  Across town in Congress we have former Senator Al Franken, caught on film moving to grope a sleeping comely female.  John Conyers resigned after reports surfaced of him attending staff meetings in his underwear.  Former Congressman Anthony Weiner was chatting and sending selfies of his private parts to an underage girl, using the same laptop which contained thousands of classified emails belonging to his wife's boss, the Secretary of State.  Keith Ellison, former Congressman, now Minnesota's Attorney General, was credibly accused of beating up his ex-girlfriend.

Only 10,000 Are Expected At This Year's Women's March Following Anti-Semitism Scandal.  This year's Women's March has taken a significant hit after reports in 2018 that the founders of the organization were openly anti-Semitic.  Many of the founders are supporters of flagrant anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, who routinely calls Jews "termites" and has led a "Death to America, Israel" chant in Iran.  The public gathering permit provided by the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Park Service shows just how far the march has fallen, stating that the "anticipated number or participants" is roughly 10,000.  In 2017, the first Women's March attracted between 500,000 and 1 million people from around the country, according to official estimates.

March for Life Art Contrasts with Vulgar Signs at Women's March in 30 Photos.  This weekend, Americans traveled from across the country to Washington, D.C., to participate in the March for Life and the Women's March by walking with their poster art.  While the pro-life marchers' art focused on women and unborn life, the posters of Women's March attendees, including small children, displayed anti-Trump messages along with vulgar imagery and words.  The Women's March began Saturday morning [1/19/2019] at Freedom Plaza.  The protest, which features a slew of liberal talking points, began in 2017 in response to the election of the president.  While the first march boasted hundreds of thousands in Washington, D.C., the 2019 march appeared much smaller.

Taxpayers Funded Shrinks Who Deem Masculinity Harmful to Health.  Taxpayers helped finance research used by the American Psychological Association to label traditional masculinity harmful.  The APA's "First-Ever Guidelines for Practice with Men and Boys" received input from dozens of psychoanalysts who believe masculinity is a social construct, are passionate about social justice, and think there is a danger in a role model like John Wayne.  Several contributors to the guidelines have received federal funding from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Education, totaling more than $4.4 million.

Masculinity Is Not Toxic, but the APA Might Be.  Institutions that used to be beyond politics have become infected by cultural Marxism, which attacks the family, traditions, and the classic natural conditions.  Based on assertions made by Dr. Ronald Levant, the American Psychological Association (APA) has declared that traditional masculinity is harmful.  Those on the left who insist that we never generalize about this group or that group are now out-front generalizing that men and masculinity are a flawed group whose nature and attitudes are harmful.  According to the APA, God's creation of male and female, masculinity and femininity was a primal, organic mistake.  Because of what the professor sees as a few flaws, he is ready to throw out historic masculinity and replace it with something un-masculine.

Who Owns the Women's March?  In its first, record-shattering year, the Women's March brought together nearly 4 million people in a simultaneous primal scream against the new president.  But two years later, the unity has frayed like a well-worn [protest] hat, with power struggles playing out in the run-up to marches that will be held across the country on Saturday, Jan. 19.  The original Washington, D.C., march organizers, who now operate as the nonprofit Women's March Inc., have applied for a trademark of the name "Women's March," angering local organizers who fear they will have to pay to use it.  At the same time, some of the local "sister marchers" are distancing themselves from the national leadership, who have been hit by accusations of anti-Semitism.

Women's March Leader Defends Decision to Praise Farrakhan as the 'Greatest of All Time'.  During a Monday morning [1/14/2019] appearance on ABC's The View, Women's March co-chair Tamika Mallory defended her past praise for notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan by drawing a distinction between his hateful rhetoric and his political advocacy on behalf of African-Americans.  "I didn't call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric.  I called him the greatest of all time because of what he's done in black communities," Mallory said when asked about a February social-media post in which she labeled Farrakhan the "GOAT."

One more product to boycott:
Procter & Gamble's Toxic Sanctimony.  One of the world's most successful brands committed ideological hara-kiri this week.  Recognized around the world as a symbol of manly civility for more than a century, Gillette will now be remembered as the company that did itself in by sacrificing a massive consumer base at the altar of progressivism.

Surprise: Genius behind man-hating Gillette ad is a radical feminist.  [Kim] Gehrig's new Gillette effort states her bias boldly by intercutting allusions to abusive acts with images of romantic heterosexuality.  A black-and-white cartoon scene that flashes past shows men whistling at a woman.  In another scant bit, a guy sees a pretty female pedestrian.  He steps after her but is restrained by a companion.  "Not cool," the restrainer admonishes.

The Editor says...
Yes, and note that the "restrainer" is black and the lecherous oaf is white, which is an inversion of what you're likely to find on the street.

Gillette Tells Men They're Repulsive Creeps.  Are you a man?  That is to say, are you a genetic male who also happens to identify as a "man," for some increasingly antiquated reason?  If so, are you under the mistaken impression that you're not a rapist?  Our society has come a long way in shaming men for behaving in any way that anybody anywhere doesn't like, and reminding men that we're all complicit even if we don't behave that way.  But it's not nearly enough.  The mere fact of maleness is shameful and problematic.  Men and boys everywhere need to be reminded that we're evil.  We must learn to hate ourselves as much as everyone else hates us.  The patriarchy must be castrated.  And who better to do it than a company that makes razors?

Woke And Broke:  Gillette Sees Sales Slump After Its Sexist and Lecturing Razor Ad.  [Scroll down]  When you open the US Gillette website you get a pop-up lecturing ad on abusive male culture.  BUT — When you open the Gillette website for ANY OTHER MARKET — including Saudi Arabia where men are taught to "discipline" their women, you will not see the anti-male ad!  It's ONLY US men they have a problem with.  Now this:  The Gillette ad ran in January.  This week Proctor and Gamble announced a slump in sales of their grooming products.

The scientific experts who hate science.  This week, the American Psychological Association proved once again that it is a political body rather than a scientific one. [...] The latest example of the American Psychological Association's political hackery concerns the topic of "traditional masculinity."  In the APA journal, it announced that it had released new guidelines to "help psychologists work with men and boys."  Those guidelines suggest that "40 years of research" show that "traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly."  The APA explains that "traditional masculinity — marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression — is, on the whole, harmful.  Men socialized in this way are less likely to engage in healthy behaviors."

Women's March loses SPLC as a partner.  The Women's March movement is in deep trouble and is in danger of falling apart as a result of the nauseating anti-Semitism of its leadership.  The latest sign of fractures in the movement came as the Southern Poverty Law Center announced they would not support the national March this year.

The train wreck called the 'Women's March'.  For outside observers, the slow-motion train wreck of the "Women's March" movement is a fascinating turn of events.  It began like all leftist disasters begin — the hijacking of an organic effort.  The Women's March, which still has a national and some local marches and rallies planned on Jan. 19, has become about identity politics, the antithesis of advancing women's rights, and the impact is finally being felt.  The New Orleans effort has been canceled.

Organizers cancel Women's March in New Orleans as support drops 'drastically'.  Organizers of the Women's March in New Orleans have decided to cancel their Jan. 19 sister march, saying that participation and fundraising have dropped "drastically" in the wake of outrage surrounding the national co-chairs.  "Due to several issues we have decided it is necessary to cancel the 2019 Women's March in New Orleans," said a Saturday post on the National Organization for Women's Baton Rouge chapter on Facebook.  The announcement by the NOW chapter, which organized the 2018 Women's March on New Orleans, comes with the four co-chairs — Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour — facing escalating calls to resign.

Intersectionality at the Crossroads.  As the facts behind the Women's Marches become more widely known, their organizers and the press, which covered for them, are covered in shame and deservedly losing traction.  In 2017 women (or is it womxn?) marched under a broad banner in opposition of President Trump.  The hodgepodge banner under which they marched included women's rights, immigration and healthcare reform, reproductive rights, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers' rights.  Apparently, the marchers were under the mistaken belief that all these issues had a common denominator and the boogeyman was Trump.

California Women's March Organizers Nix 2019 Event for Being 'Overwhelmingly White'.  Organizers who had been planning to hold a California Women's March in January have now canceled the event, claiming the attendees would have been "overwhelmingly white."  The Humboldt County organizers had planned to host the rally in Eureka, California on Jan. 19th to honor the third anniversary of the original Women's March in Washington, D.C., in 2017 after President Trump was inaugurated.  After it was revealed that the event would not be as diverse as the Eureka Women's March organizers would like, they decided to pull the plug on Friday [12/28/2018].

As national Women's March leaders face claims of anti-Semitism, Chicago group says it won't host January march, citing costs.  As controversy swells around national Women's March organizers, the local group has decided not to host a march in January — an event that for the past two years drew hundreds of thousands of supporters to Grant Park in concert with similar marches across the globe.  While Women's March Chicago organizers cited high costs and limited volunteer hours as the main reasons for nixing the annual rally and march, the break comes amid splintering within the national Women's March leadership following accusations of anti-Semitism and scrutiny of its ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan Is Only A Tiny Part Of Women's March Leaders' Antisemitism.  The rest of the world is finally catching up with what this site has been screaming about since March 2017, the Women's March organization is run by Anti-Semites.  Marches in Seattle and Chicago have been canceled because of the Jew-hatred of the leaders and their connections to Farrakhan's "Nation of Islam." While their links to the lowlife Farrakhan is one piece of evidence, the Antisemitism of three Women's March leaders Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez go way beyond their association with Louis Farrakhan.

Swedish Anti-Rape 'Man-Free' Music Festival Ruled Discriminatory.  A feminist music event has fallen foul of Sweden's equality laws for banning "cis men" at a women-only concert, organised after a spate of sex attacks by migrant men plagued other festivals.  Sweden's Discrimination Ombudsman ruled on Monday that because the website of summer 2018's Statement Festival advertised it as "male-free" and that all "cis" (biologically male) men would be excluded, it represented an "infringement of the prohibition of discrimination in a manner related to gender".

Women's March Leaders Face Anti-Semitic, Corruption Charges Ahead of Second Anti-Trump Event.  The anti-Trump Women's March that hit the streets the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration is now gearing up for a repeat event on January 19 in Washington, DC, but some of its founders are facing charges from former fellow activists that the left-wing group is promoting the bigotry and corruption it claims to oppose.  Teresa Shook, credited as one of the women who launched the march on social media, spearheaded the criticism last month when she called on the women now running the "movement" to step down.

Report:  Women's March Full Of Anti-Semites, Has Ties To Nation Of Islam.  Leaders of the left-wing activist group Women's March have ties to Nation of Islam and believe in a variety of conspiratorial anti-Semitic tropes, according to a report from Tablet magazine.  The investigation by Tablet alleges that two core members of the group who occupy leadership positions, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory, shared erroneous ideas about the Jewish people in meetings, including that they "bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people," and "were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade.

The Women's March was Always Anti-Semitic.  Again, kudos to the Tablet for some laborious in-depth reporting on the origins of the Women's March, its dirty financials and its anti-Semitic origin story. [...] And anti-Semitism is also commonplace among La Raza types.  The Women's March decided to go multicultural the intersectional way by bringing in ethnic, religious and racial nationalists.

What the Facebook Wars are Really About.  Facebook got its start as FaceMash: a site comparing the attractiveness of female Harvard students.  It was then reborn as a social network for Harvard students, Ivy League schools and then everyone.  More recent surveys showed that the average Facebook user in the United States is 40 years old. [...] Mark Zuckerberg had created a company to appeal to college students who wanted to rate the cutest girls on campus, but is instead stuck with a monster worth hundreds of billions (that number will continue fluctuating with media hit pieces) used by people with actual jobs to share family photos and talk politics.

The Editor says...
Facebook started out as a web site primarily for rating and ranking female college students based entirely on their physical attractiveness.  And yet the easily-offended feminists are completely silent about this.

Wall Street Rule for the #MeToo Era:  Avoid Women at All Cost.  No more dinners with female colleagues.  Don't sit next to them on flights.  Book hotel rooms on different floors.  Avoid one-on-one meetings.  In fact, as a wealth adviser put it, just hiring a woman these days is "an unknown risk."  What if she took something he said the wrong way?  Across Wall Street, men are adopting controversial strategies for the #MeToo era and, in the process, making life even harder for women.

Woman Writes Article Swearing To Never Cook For A Man, Again Showing Why Feminism Is Bad For Marriage.  Another feminist screed went viral this week.  The title tells you everything you need to know:  "I'm a Great Cook.  Now That I'm Divorced, I'm Never Making Dinner for a Man Again."  Written by a woman named Lyz Lenz, it tells the sad tale of a beleaguered, unappreciated wife who magnanimously cooked for her family until she decided that cooking is oppressive and vowed to never do it again.  Soon after, her marriage fell apart.  Feminists are hailing the article as an insightful and beautiful ode to female liberation.  I think it's silly, self-pitying, and rather embarrassing for the author.

Feminists' Undue Process.  The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings gave the public a crash course in campus-rape ideology.  It is about to get another.  Last week, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos released a proposed federal rule that corrects the worst procedural abuses of campus-rape tribunals.  It hews closely to judicial precedent and is fair to all parties, yet the feminist establishment has reacted with hysteria, characterizing the draft regulation as an assault on sexual-assault "survivors."  Maintenance of the campus-rape myth, it turns out, is incompatible with due process.  Whether feminism itself is compatible with Enlightenment values appears increasingly doubtful.

Fembot Tool Warns Journalists if They Quote Too Many Men.  It probably wasn't inspired by U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono, who not long ago told men to "shut up."  But that's in a way what a new Financial Times tool will do:  warn writers if they're quoting too many men and force them to purge male voices.

The Democrats' pro-woman fraud.  [Scroll down]  All those champions and protectors of women in the Senate, where are they now?  Is Kamala Harris going to pay for Julie Swetnick's defense costs?  Ms. Feinstein and Mr. Booker and Ms. Hirono "believe all women."  Ms. Hirono said it was the responsibility of Justice Kavanaugh to "prove his innocence."  Why aren't Ms. Hirono, Sen. Patrick Leahy and Sen. Amy Klobuchar engaging in a hunger strike as Kavanaugh accusers face criminal investigation?  If these Democrats were serious about what they were doing, and serious about sexual assault, they would be angry.  They would be appalled that people lied; that frauds reversed the impact of what the feminist movement was trying to do for the last 20 years: [...] Instead, we have crickets.  There's nothing about #BelieveAllWomen, because it's not useful anymore.  Like sexual assault as an issue, its political value is spent.

Bullying Woke Feminist Moms Must Be Stopped.  Did you hear the one about the Mother who asked a little boy and his Mom to leave a playground so that it could be girls only?  No.  Well, you are going to because I have [...] had it with these angry, bitter, feminist bullying Moms and their ugly entitled attitudes.

No Boys Allowed:  Mom Wants 'Girls-Only Time' At Public Playground.  Some of the worst examples of humanity can be found in questions to advice columnists.  Thankfully, The Washington Post's Carolyn Hax didn't support the outrageous and oppressing feminism of the mother who asked how she could keep a little boy off a public playground.  You know, to destroy the patriarchy or whatever.  "Playground Drama," as the anonymous advice-seeker was described, told Hax about a group of moms with daughters who gather at a local playground at the same time each week.  There's no designated "girl time" or "boy time" at the playground and apparently no way to rent the park for any specific park.  Yet this mom decided this was her time and that no boys should be allowed.  The anonymous mom said she asked the mother of the little boy (nicely, she thought) if she would take her future Patriarchal Oppressor and get the heck out of there.  Naturally, the other mom did not agree, and "seemed angry" at the woman's request.

Kristen Bell voices concern about message 'Snow White' sends to daughters.  Kristen Bell, the voice of Anna in Disney's hit animated film "Frozen," revealed in an interview published Wednesday her concerns about the message "Snow White" sends to her two daughters.  Bell told Parents magazine that she asks her daughters, "Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?  Because you cannot kiss someone if they're sleeping!" she said.

Snow White, assault victim
Modern moms have had enough of Disney's damsels-in-distress.  In the new Disney film "Ralph Breaks the Internet," opening next month, spunky heroine Vanellope finds herself in a room full of the mouse empire's iconic princesses, from Snow White to Cinderella to Elsa.  The princesses are unconvinced that Vanellope is one of them, until Rapunzel asks:  "Do people assume all your problems got solved because a big, strong man showed up?"  "Yes, what is up with that?" Vanellope says.  "She is a princess!" they cry in unison.  It's a scene played with a wink, of course; Disney getting a laugh from stereotypes the studio itself peddled.  But for some mothers, it's not a joke — for them, it's time to leave the older fairy-tale princesses on the cutting-room floor.

Kristen Bell blasts Prince Charming for kissing Snow White 'without her permission'.  Actress Kristen Bell, who played the voice of Anna in Disney's "Frozen," argued there are plots points in the 1930s classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" that could be problematic for young children.  Mrs. Bell, who has two young daughters with her husband, actor Dax Shepard, told Parents magazine that she points out those problems every time she reads the book with her children.  "Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?" she said she asks her daughters.  "Because you can not kiss someone if they're sleeping!"  Ms. Bell, who is working on a children's book herself, also takes issue with Snow White accepting food from strangers.

Why are faceless accusations allowed to end men's careers?  On 11 October 2017 an anonymous Google spreadsheet began doing the rounds of American newspapers and magazines — a document that would have far-reaching consequences for Stephen Elliott, a Los Angeles-based writer and editor.  [...] [T]he spreadsheet had been created by Moira Donegan, a former assistant editor at the New Republic, and named various men rumoured to be guilty of sexual misconduct.  Donegan closed it down a few days later, but by that time it had been widely circulated and many names had been added, alongside a summary of their alleged crimes.  The entry for Elliott read:  'Rape accusations, sexual harassment, coercion, unsolicited invitations to his apartment, a dude who snuck into Binders???'  (Binders is a Facebook group for women writers.)  The spreadsheet contained a disclaimer:  'This document is only a collection of allegations and rumours.  Take everything with a grain of salt.'  Needless to say, that was largely ignored.  Numerous articles appeared celebrating the list as a much-needed 'reckoning', with not many people pausing to consider whether the men on the list were guilty.  Elliott had a collection of essays to promote, but interviews were pulled, readings cancelled and his book tour fizzled out.  His television agent stopped returning his calls and some friends began to distance themselves.  He found himself at the centre of a Kafka-esque nightmare.

Camille Paglia:  Feminism Based on Destroying Men Is 'Absolute Poison' to Culture.  Cultural commentator Camille Paglia said in a recently published video that second-wave feminism — in its attempt to destroy men — is also destroying women and our culture.

Kleenex to rebrand 'mansize' tissues after gender complaints.  Kleenex will re-brand its "Mansize" tissues after consumers complained the name was sexist — touching off a social media conversation about what's in a name.

This May Be the Looniest Anti-male Op-ed Ever Written.  And the Washington Post Just Published It.  On Friday [10/12/2018], The Washington Post ran what could easily rank as the single looniest op-ed they've ever run:  a piece from Victoria Bissell Brown, retired history professor at Grinnell College, arguing that men are incapable of being good, even if they oppose sexism.  Men are, by nature, vile and terrible, and can't fix anything by listening to women — instead, they must change from within.  Sadly, though, they're not capable of such change, which begs the question:  what [...] are men supposed to do, aside from die?

Why Leftist Women Keep Lying About the Women's Movement.  Feminists complain about equality.  They use the "I don't get paid as much as a man" routine, knowing it's usually [untrue].  But their biggest issue is related to "It's my body and I can do what I want".  These women use the "it's my body" excuse solely when killing babies.  They never complain about not being able to sell a kidney on the open market.  And rarely do they complain about the fact that the government dictates what they do with their bodies in prostitution.  Let's face it, a woman is much more inclined to use her body for prostitution than to kill a baby or even sell a kidney.  Yet, the only way a woman can sell her body is with government sanction, like at a Nevada brothel.

The Feminist Brain:  An Incoherent Mess.  Feminist logic boils down to the reductio ad absurdum:  She is strong, fearless, and independent — even as she is frightened, victimized, and in desperate need of protection against men from (mostly) men in government, business, and virtually everywhere else.

What Does The Bible Say About False Accusers And #BelieveWomen?  It was a tough fight, one in which liberals pulled out literally every possible stop to win.  They thankfully failed, but this crucial victory didn't come without several disturbing trends, perhaps the most notable being the fact — and this has been brewing ever since the #MeToo movement started — that we are apparently supposed to #BelieveWomen every time they decide to make a claim about a man.  That's right — no matter how outlandish, no matter how far removed by time, no matter how politically motivated, if a woman says it, it's true and it totally happened exactly as she said it did.  And if you don't believe it, you're a sexist pig.  It's an odd, patronizing, dehumanizing claim, actually.  To attribute perfection to half the human population when the truth is so obviously different — as anyone with a daughter knows — is patently absurd, and dangerous.  And yet here we are, for all intents and purposes being called heretics for acknowledging that, indeed, women can and do lie about men.

#MeToo:  Coming for a Republican Near You.  If you believe the character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh by the Democrats and the #MeToo mob is an isolated phenomenon, you're kidding yourself.  Such smears will be the primary weapon they deploy against Republicans throughout the midterms.  It's their only hope of winning majorities in Congress.  The GOP is favored to retain their Senate majority, and recent shifts in the generic ballot portend bad news for them in the House.  Even worse, Democratic policy proposals range from the merely dumb to the downright dangerous.  Without launching a barrage of last minute accusations of sexual misconduct, they will remain in the minority.  The smears have already begun, and the victims aren't limited to men running for (or members of) the U.S. Congress.

Obama's Social Experiments Are Wreaking Havoc on America Today.  [Example #1]  The sexual assault maelstrom:  It all started in 2011, when the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) under Obama's Department of Education (DOE) issued a "Dear Colleague" letter reinterpreting Title IX of the 1972 Higher Education Act.  The OCR letter encouraged colleges and universities to set up what Harvard Law professors Jacob Gerson and Jeannie Suk called a "sex bureaucracy."  Separate Title IX offices at colleges across the country heard sexual assault cases, doling out punishments on their own.  These mini bureaucracies operated off of the false assumptions that police are biased against sexual assault victims, that 1 in 4 women on college campuses are raped, and that basic due process protections for the accused would violate the rights of the "victims."  Men who have been falsely accused — and even acquitted by real police investigations — have seen their lives and reputations destroyed.

The Three Lies of Christine Blasey Ford.  [Scroll down]  She is not a sympathetic figure.  She is not a confused, traumatized victim attempting to grapple with the fragmented memories of a past incident.  The record clearly reveals that this to be nonsense.  She is a malicious liar who has put herself at the service of malignant political clique for the purpose of undercutting the stated will and intentions of the people of this country.  It is a simple fact that Kavanaugh's accusers on the committee are proven liars — Feinstein in withholding the letter in the first place (not to mention denying how it became public), Booker concerning his good friend T-Bone, along with his "Spartacus moment", Blumenthal concerning his heroism in Vietnam.  The stunning irony here is that Judge Kavanaugh is demonstrably more honest than any of his accusers.  This is the central truth of the Kavanaugh case.  It must be hammered relentlessly, to the point where it can no longer be evaded.  It must be repeated every time we're told that "women don't lie".  Every time someone flaunts a t-shirt reading "I Believe Her".  Every time we hear another obtuse blurt from Pelosi or Hirono.

California will require women on corporate boards under bill signed by Brown.  California became the first state in the country to require that women be included on companies' boards of directors, as Gov. Jerry Brown literally sent a message to Washington on Sunday [9/30/2018] in signing legislation that corporate associations opposed as unconstitutional.  Brown signed SB826 into law after it passed the Assembly and the Senate last month.  The bill mandates that all publicly traded California companies have at least one woman on their boards by the end of 2019.

The Editor says...
Notice how much of California's official business is transacted on Sundays.

Rape fakers must pay a higher price.  It's settled, but far from over.  The University of Virginia fraternity that was slimed and defamed by sicko fabulist Sabrina Erdely will receive a $1.65 million payment, the fraternity announced this week [in June 2017].  Erdely's manufactured tale of gang rape by Phi Kappa Psi members, spun through a manipulated UVA student dubbed "Jackie" and published by left-wing Rolling Stone magazine, combusted spectacularly after scrutiny by independent journalists in late 2014.

Life in a Gynocracy.  Since when do those accusing others of crimes become "survivors" rather than "accusers"?  How you frame your self-description affects views, doesn't it?  If you claimed that someone had raped you, why must we always believe you just because you tag yourself "a survivor"?  Do we do this with those who claim to have been robbed or beaten?  "I'm a robbery survivor, so you have to believe me when I say X robbed me."  The shift in language is to message that accusers must always be believed.  It is, at heart, based on a gross distortion of statistics. [...] Indirect data, in fact, highly suggest that far more than two percent of rape accusations are false.  The 2% genesis was a handout from Susan Brownmiller's file.

The utility of privacy.  A scientific article recently cited by the New York Times proves it is possible to create a world without males.  "Life With No Males?  These Termites Show That It's Possible.  A discovery among termite colonies in Japan suggests that males can be discarded from advanced societies in which they once played an active role."  An expert interviewed by the article confidently declared that for termites at least "the future is female".  The implict theme of the doomed male cannot be escaped in the MeToo era.  In case you missed the point white males especially are headed for the boneyard and even science knows it.  Can they be serious?  More serious than you think.

No country for white men.  On a clear day, years from now, this time in America will likely be recognized as our Golden Age, certainly for women.  Men... not so much.  Old white men?  Not a chance... and no place to hide, either, from the finger pointing, whether you did it or you didn't.

Are Democrats Right To Think Women Are Stupid Enough To Believe The Lies Against Judge Brett Kavanaugh?  Democrats in Congress are counting on the stupidity of women.  You see, the allegation that Judge Brett Kavanaugh may or may not have flirted with a girl at a party nearly forty years ago while they were both in high school is absurd on every level.  Democrats know it.  The media knows it.  The idiotic nature of the claim doesn't matter.  They are pushing the false 'sexual assault' narrative believing that most women are stupid enough, intellectually lazy enough, to merely read the false headlines and then neglect to actually learn the facts and thus be manipulated into voting against Republicans in the 2018 Midterms.

No matter how low the Democrats go, I'm not ashamed to be a man.  Every morning for the past seven days I have awakened to the horror of the latest obscene Democrat attack on Brett Kavanaugh and the calculated leftist conviction that this 36-year-old accusation is true because all men, especially all white men, are gropers and abusers of women.  With every ridiculous excuse for why they believe this unbelievable allegation, they are attacking my masculinity. [...] Women like [Christine] Blasey Ford and her defenders, not one of whom in Congress has ever met or spoken to her, have done terrible damage to women and girls.  Two generations of women have been taught that men are their enemies, that children are an unnecessary burden, a contribution to overpopulation.  The have been taught to see men as predators when in fact they are natural protectors.

Mazie Hirono Took Money From Democrat Who Admitted to Hitting Wife.  Hawaii senator Mazie Hirono (D.) has stepped into the spotlight this week following sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, blaming "men in this country" for perpetuating sexual assault and telling them all to "just shut up."  Hirono's Democratic colleague in the Senate, Tom Carper (Del.), who has admitted to punching his wife hard enough to give her a black eye, appears to be getting a pass from Hirono, who, even since his admission was revealed last January, has taken campaign money from him.

Are Feminists Aiding Muslim Domination?  "What do you think about ... creating an awesome festival where only non-men are welcome until ALL men learn how to behave?"  This comes from the article titled "Women Cheer as Sweden's Man-Free Music Festival Kicks Off." [...] Such a radical view balkanizes and scapegoats men while applauding transgender behavior.  In fact, the misandry has led the Swedish Equality Ombudsman, a government agency that promotes equal rights, to "examine whether the festival is compatible with discrimination laws."  It appears that the left-wing feminist movement has become the perpetrator of man-hatred, all in the name of protecting women.  Yet overlooked by the advocates of the man-free festival is that it was a plethora of Muslim migrants who perpetrated the dreadful assaults and rapes.  These migrants come from societies where this is considered an acceptable way to treat women.

Pelosi Haunted by Women Her Party Suppressed.  The Democratic Party was the primary obstacle in the way of women's suffrage for half a century until the Republicans finally passed the Nineteenth Amendment — codifying the right of women to vote.  Democrat obstruction of suffrage led Anthony's National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) to support Republican President Grant's 1872 reelection campaign.  Moreover, she shamed the election board of Rochester, NY into registering her to vote (over the protests of the 3-man board's only Democrat).  She cast her ballot on November 5, 1872, for which she was arrested and put on trial.  The Democratic war on women's suffrage became even more vicious in 1878, when Republican Senator Aaron A. Sargent, a friend of Susan B. Anthony, introduced the Nineteenth Amendment.  Congressional Democrats, when they were unable to bottle it up in committee, voted it down every time it reached the floor of either House until 1919, when the GOP won landslide victories in both houses of Congress.

Ten Inconvenient Facts.  [#3] Men and women are different.  You wouldn't think this obvious fact would be controversial, especially one backed by vast biological and social science findings.  But liberals are now committed to the elimination of sexual difference.  That's why they have lionized the trans- individual.  Difference leads to unequal outcomes, they believe, and so it must be attributed to patriarchy, not to nature.  They can't accept scientific evidence that women tend to prefer working with people, men with things.  They must, instead, insist that the population of engineers must be 50 percent female.

Junk Science and the Feminist Manipulation Agenda:  Part 1.  In his tearjerker Aug. 19 article in The New York Times, "How Sexism Follows Women From the Cradle to the Workplace," Jim Tankersley provides a rich example of how fake news functions in tandem with junk science to vilify traditional gender norms, which, if only the cultural elite can have their way, shall be unthinkable for all "respectable people."  Both Tankersley himself and the scholars he cites display profound irresponsibility where epistemic rigor and contextual understanding are in order.  This, of course, is only to be expected, for the primary goal here is Power — Power culminating in the road to serfdom — not excellent work.

Dems promise to subordinate men if they retake the House.  Democrats are promising that women will be the ones wearing the pants in the House if they get a majority in the November elections.  That's because not only would Nancy Pelosi become speaker, but 35 women would head major committees and subcommittees.

Lawyering While Female.  Lara Bazelon has a beef with God.  You see, she's a trial lawyer, a former prosecutor.  We do not know how good she is at her job.  We do not know her won-loss records.  Apparently, she does not care about such minor matters.  What really bothers her is the rampant sexism in the criminal justice system.  And in the world outside the criminal justice system.  You see, male attorneys do not have to worry about which heels to wear and whether or not to wear pantyhose.  It is an appalling injustice, don't you think?  Besides the male voice and male demeanor command more respect.  Hmmm.  Sounds like blatant discrimination and prejudice.  The poor darling.  If lawyers won their cases by complaining and whining, Bazelon would be a champion.  One suspects that her bad attitude has been as much of an impediment as anything else.

Feminism isn't helping girls, and certainly not boys.  Much of feminism, while it has empowered women to seek equality in the workforce, now champions ideas that often hurt women.  Many of the policies they encourage actually hurt women — like the so-called tampon tax and forcing employers to pay for women to have maternity leave which actually leads to subtle discrimination against hiring women.  (Company-volunteered paid maternity leave, such as what 3M provides, is much better.)  Even more harmful than the fiscal policies is the philosophy that seems to have overtaken the first and second waves of feminism (which were centered around equality) and now revolves around entitlement.  There's a concerted effort to push workplaces to embrace a 50-50 male-to-female ratio regardless of merit, and the rhetoric at the women's marches is more anti-male and pro-choice on abortion than pro-woman.  This doesn't help women or men.

Defying the Dogmas of Modern Feminism.  [Mona] Charen is happy women have greater professional freedom than in the past but isn't the slightest bit hesitant to link feminist support of the sexual revolution to problems women are facing today.  Noting the culture's openness to women's professional advancement was already happening without second-wave feminism, Charen lays out convincingly that those feminist leaders were deluded by Freud and Marx and ultimately pushed ideas harmful to women.  Second-wave feminists weren't alone:  Charen describes how elite universities in the 1960s and '70s were teeming with Freudian and Marxian thinking, precipitating the scientifically dubious but authoritative-sounding proclamations of Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, and other bestselling authors.

Two Stanford Psychologists On Gender Compliment Patrol.  Because complimenting students the wrong way can perpetuate gender bias, they say.  "Although 'Girls are as good as boys at math' explicitly expresses equality, we predict it could nevertheless suggest that boys have more raw talent," Eleanor K. Chestnut and Ellen M. Markman write in Cognitive Science:  A Multidisciplinary Journal.  "In statements with this subject-complement structure, the item in the complement position serves as the reference point and is thus considered more typical and prominent."

Leftists Plan Nationwide Protest of SCOTUS Nominee Kavanaugh:  Will 'Punish Women'.  The left wing, abortion-on-demand NARAL Pro-Choice America is spearheading a protest it says will take place in all 50 states on Aug. 26 to oppose President Donald Trump's pick to be the next Supreme Court Justice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.  The so-called "Stand for Justice" rallies are planned to take place on "Women's Equality Day."

Feminist scholar slams hot-wing-eating show for 'inequitable gender hierarchies'.  Have you ever watched two men devour spicy chicken wings and been so affected by the absence of women that you wrote an academic paper about it?  If not, then you're not as enlightened as the University of Tulsa's Emily J.H. Contois.  The professor of media studies apparently sees toxic masculinity at work in the popular YouTube show Hot Ones, whose host and celebrity guest each eat a plate of hot wings "dressed with hot sauces of increasing intensity."

Miss America Officials Want Gretchen Carlson and Her Feminist Board Gone!  Miss America pageant officials are trying to stop Gretchen Carlson and her army of Social Justice Warrior Women — feminists — from ruining the beauty contest.  A petition calling for the resignation of the entire Miss America board, to include Chairwoman Gretchen Carlson and President and CEO Regina Hopper, has received signatures from 22 state pageant officials, according to the Press of Atlantic City.  An opposition letter signed by 30 former Miss Americas, said they "fully support" Carlson and the current leadership, who "have been working tirelessly to move our program forward," The Press reported.

Feminism is a Corporate Scam.  Feminism began with the noble effort of granting women equal rights, but we all know how that's changed.  Today, feminism uses men and women all over the Western world as political pawns in a project that aims to destroy society as we know it.  [Video clip]

Feminist prof doubles-down on call to 'hate men'.  Northeastern University professor Suzanna Danuta Walters recently doubled-down on her controversial argument that feminist women have "every right" to "hate men."  Walters told the left-leaning Chronicle of Higher Education that she doesn't "hate men in some generic way," but insisted that "it makes obvious sense for women to have rage" against men who perpetuate the patriarchy.  She also dismissed claims that her argument could be construed as "hate speech," saying it is actually white men who are guilty of "weaponized hate speech."

A Double Injustice Throws a Scare into the Nation's Judges.  There is an obvious agenda behind the feminist revenge play and the perversion of justice poisoning the culture. #MeToo means "You're toast." [...] Judges ruling on sexual assault cases, which as time goes on are likely to proliferate, will now find themselves in the service of feminist madness if they wish to preserve their careers.  They will require sensitivity training.  They will be enjoined to "follow their hearts," not the established procedures and precedents of the law.  They will learn that allegations are dispositive and that "survivors" must be believed.  Neither the accused nor the presiding judge can expect that justice will be done.

When PC Comes Back to Bite You.  Modern progressives are all about gender equality.  In keeping with this belief, the Pennsylvania Democratic party has imposed gender-based quotas on their convention delegates.  Here, everything must be 50/50 in the interest of "fairness" — including when it's not so fair.  To wit:  You may have read about two female candidates at the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee convention who were not seated because too many women had won delegate seats.  Yep, the winning female candidates were declared the losing candidates because of their gender.  So much for merit; so much for fairness; so much for democracy.

NYC launches push for new monument honoring women.  Women will soon be getting their place among the city's overwhelmingly male statues and monuments.  Officials launched a push Wednesday to put up a monument marking women's contributions to the city, and are asking the public to nominate women they'd like to see honored.  "This is the day we finally start putting women where they belong — on pedestals," said deputy mayor Alicia Glen, who joined Mayor de Blasio's wife, Chirlane McCray, to make the announcement at Bryant Park — a rare spot that already has two monuments to women.

America the Horrible?  American women live under a suffocating patriarchy.  Rape culture flourishes in the United States.  Toxic masculinity stunts the emotional and professional growth of American females.  Sexual harassment and predation are ubiquitous in American workplaces.  College campuses are maelstroms of sexual violence.  Female students need safe spaces where they can escape abusive male power.  These propositions are self-evident to a large, interlocking establishment of government bureaucrats, progressive politicians, college administrators, faculty, "activists," professionals, and journalists.  Yet this same establishment is up in arms over a recent declaration by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that female aliens caught trying to enter the country illegally will no longer be automatically considered for asylum by dint of claiming that they are victims of domestic abuse.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accuses the Trump administration of "staggering cruelty" in condemning "vulnerable innocent women to a lifetime of violence and even death."  The American Bar Association charged that Sessions would "further victimize those most in need of protection."

Moms to Daughters: Don't Be Ali Watkins.  The case of Ali Watkins offers mothers an opening to have an uncomfortable yet necessary conversation with their daughters:  Don't sleep your way to the top.  One would think in this #metoo, female empowerment, equal pay, don't-even-tell-me-my-dress-is-pretty climate of workplace taboos, that conversation would be unnecessary.  Twenty-something women and their successors have been programmed to be independent of men — especially white, older men. [...] So, it's surprising to discover that young liberal women are still getting ahead the old-fashioned way.  And not only is this behavior accepted, it is rewarded by the same news media overlords who have fueled the gender wars; boasted about their fealty to women in the workplace; and ridiculed powerful men preying on ambitious young women.

Northeastern professor asks, 'Is it really so illogical to hate men?'.  A sociology professor at Northeastern University is raising eyebrows with her new op-ed arguing that it's logical for feminist women to hate men.  Suzanna Walters, director of Northeastern's Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program and the editor of the gender studies journal Signs, wrote in her op-ed for The Washington Post last week that in order for men to atone for "all the millennia of woe" they have inflicted upon women, they must stop running for office and resign from power.

Miss America drops swimsuit competition and won't judge on looks.  The Miss America Organization is dropping the swimsuit competition, saying it will no longer judge contestants on their appearance.

The lawless, porn-respecting, MS-13-loving, humorless American left.  [The Democrats] love Stormy Daniels and celebrate her ridiculous, attention-seeking, money-grubbing stalking of President Trump.  After Rudy Giuliani dared to say he did not have the same level of respect for her as he would a "woman of substance," the denizens of CNN, NBC, and MSNBC went ballistic.  Apparently she is very much a woman of substance.  The women of The View, including Meghan McCain, defended her "work" (performing a variety of sex acts on film for money with numerous partners).  To hear them sing Stormy's praises, one would think each of them would be proud if her own daughter chose such a profession.  But, as Mark Steyn observed, at the same time, the Miss America Pageant will no longer have a swimsuit or evening gown segment because these are demeaning to women.  Stormy is a woman to be admired for her work ethic, but the bathing suit portion of the Miss America contest is degrading.  The Democrats have boxed themselves into a corner so fraught with hypocrisy that it is stupefying.

The More Young Men Are Bathed in Femininity, the More 'Toxic Masculinity' You Will See.  One of the most ironic things about the constant "toxic masculinity" complaints that we hear these days is that we live in an overly feminized culture where most of the "toxic" males seem to have either been raised without fathers or claim to be adherents of feminism. [...] We take a young man and kick his father out of his life, send him to school where he has mostly women teachers, barrage him with negative messages about masculinity, then turn him loose at college where we treat him like a guilty-until-proven-innocent rapist, and after all that, we blame "masculinity" when he goes off the rails despite the fact that he spent a lifetime bathed in femininity.  Unsurprisingly, the more women try to change masculinity, the more negative and toxic it actually becomes.  Yet, articles explaining how masculinity needs to be changed and rewired — written by women or feminized males — are practically a cottage industry these days.

Reforming the Miss America Pageant:  Brains Trump Beauty.  The leadership of the Miss America beauty pageant announced this week it would eliminate the historic "bathing beauty" or swimsuit portion of the competition.  The decision was explained as a reform to stop the young ladies who compete, from being judged on their appearance. [...] If you can't find a middle ground between cheesy exploitation and angry androgyny, you might be a 21st-century feminist.

The lunacy of kicking 'beauty' out of the Miss America pageant.  If you hadn't noticed, physical beauty is a huge part of our economy and our culture.  And before you go on about this showing how sexist or "lookist" American society is, physical beauty is a huge part of literally every culture on earth and has been for all time.  Notions of beauty are fluid, sure, but the interest in beauty — or desirability — itself is an expression of human nature.  Can it go too far?  Absolutely.  Can you get rid of it?  Nope.

It's Always About Power.  SJWs, like busybody tyrants throughout history, are extremely cynical and calculating about these things.  This is how they can claim they are about peace, love, and diversity one moment, and shout "kill whitey" the next.  Whatever works in that particular moment, that is what they will use.  This is why so many prominent SJW feminists have been outed as sexual creeps, rapists, cheaters, and otherwise.  Feminism is a tool for them — they don't really believe any of it.  It is merely a crowbar to open a door to more power.

Dear Ex-Friends in #TheResistance.  On November 9, [2016,] you awoke from a self-induced, eight-year-long political coma to find that White House press secretaries shade the truth and top presidential advisors run political cover for their boss.  You suddenly thought it was fine to mock the first lady now that she wasn't Michelle Obama.  Once you removed your [pink] hat after attending the Women's March, you made fun of Kellyanne Conway's hair, Sarah Sanders' weight, Melania Trump's shoes, Hope Hicks' death stare; you helped fuel a rumor started by a bottom-feeding author that U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley slept with Donald Trump.  You thought it was A-OK that Betsy DeVos was nearly physically assaulted and routinely heckled.  You glorified a woman who has sex on camera for a paycheck.  You have learned all kinds of new things that those of us who didn't willfully ignore politics for the past eight years already knew.

The Feminist Endgame.  Modern feminism is characterized by a toxic mix of prudishness, self-importance, paranoia, groundless hatred, and epidemic humorlessness.  As a disease of sheer cray-cray offense-taking, culminating in hatred for half the human race, with a special emphasis on white males, feminism will not rest satisfied until men are taught to keep their knees together, their eyes down, and their mouths shut, eliminating confident alphas from the sexual equation or turning them into compliant betas.  Humor, or rather lack of same, is the key to understanding the feminist personality type and the species of derangement to which it is prone.  A sense of humor, including a penchant for wit and satire, is a sign of developed intelligence.  Being able to tell jokes and especially to get jokes, even at one's expense, is a human quality whose absence betokens a closed and rigid sensibility.

More Bad News for Feminists.  [Scroll down]  Allison Gabriel, assistant professor of management and organizations at the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management, in her recent studies of men and women in the workplace, "found consistent evidence that women reported higher levels of incivility from other women than their male counterparts....  [Women] are ruder to each other than they are to men, or than men are to women."  And the more assertive the women were, the more rudeness they received from other women.  Hence, while feminists are forever urging women to be "strong and independent," women's biggest obstacle in doing so is likely to be other women.

Phyllis McGinley and the Left's War on American Motherhood.  We celebrate this Mother's Day at a time when American motherhood is under siege, with fertility at record lows and the traditional family often the subject of pop-culture mockery.  At a time when dysfunctionality and despair are considered by many an essential part of the artistic temperament, McGinley is a reminder that great art can celebrate joy and health and that the maternal can stand on its own as an eternal human value and measure of worth.

No, We Shouldn't Include Girls In Everything.  It's fitting that the Girl Scouts are still the Girl Scouts while the Boy Scouts have changed their identity and now even their name to include girls.  Girls can still have their own spaces and their own organizations in our culture.  They are forced to allow boys into their locker rooms and bathrooms, which is insane and dangerous, but even in that case the boy has to pretend to be a girl in order to gain admittance.  Boys, on the other hand, are expected to include girls in everything.  They are provided no area and no time to be boys, and do boy things, and be around other boys.  We used to understand that boys need space apart from girls.  Not anymore.  It's been trending this way for a while now.

Chivalry is dead because women killed it.  The relentless message from women and society that men have nothing special to offer — that not only is their income unnecessary, so is their chivalrous behavior — has built a wall between the sexes the size of Mount Everest.  Funny thing, though, the equality meme hasn't translated to women paying for their own dinner or asking men to marry them.  Why is that?  Could it be that deep down, women know something's lost when men and women are viewed as the same?  Could it be there was something special about men being men and women being women?

Who Was Worse — Michelle Wolf or Her Audience?  Michelle Wolf — a comic I had never heard of — was mean, dumb and notably unfunny at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner, but her audience was worse.  They should have unanimously walked out on her or, at the least, taken the leftover monkfish on their plates and heaved it toward the stage until the woman ceased her vulgar and unnecessarily vicious attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was sitting about twenty feet away with her husband.  But with some notable exceptions, they did nothing.  Some even applauded.  Or laughed at this humorless harridan.  It was the Robespierre moment of the #MeToo movement.  Sisterhood is no longer powerful.  It's sadistic — especially when aimed at women on the "wrong" side.  This is of a piece with sudden silence about the accusations against Tom Brokaw.  Feminism isn't just dead.  It's decomposed.

University of Texas to Treat Masculinity as a 'Mental Health' Issue.  The Counseling and Mental Health Center at the University of Texas at Austin recently launched a new program to help male students "take control over their gender identity and develop a healthy sense of masculinity."  Treating masculinity as if it were a mental health crisis, "MasculinUT" is organized by the school's counseling staff and most recently organized a poster series encouraging students to develop a "healthy model of masculinity."  The program is predicated on a critique of so-called "restrictive masculinity."  Men, the program argues, suffer when they are told to "act like a man" or when they are encouraged to fulfill traditional gender roles, such as being "successful" or "the breadwinner."

Behind The Civil Rights Masks Of The Women's March Leaders.  Chances are, if you supported the Women's March, you were duped.  And if you are Jewish and supported the March, they duped you twice.  Even before the event, Palestinian-American co-Chair Linda Sarsour held a questionable record as a self-proclaimed civil rights activist.  The outspoken, hijab-clad former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York has claimed that supporters of Israel cannot be feminists.  She proudly backs the Boycott, Divest And Sanctions movement against the Jewish state, allies herself with convicted terrorist Rasmieh Odeh, and has called Zionism "creepy."  She has also reportedly paid tribute to Siraj Wahhaj, "an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, a witness on behalf of the Blind Sheikh terrorist, and a man who has repeatedly embraced the notion of violent jihad," according to Ben Shapiro, in the National Review.

The left's war on science.  [Scroll down]  Likewise, researching gender differences is dangerous to your career.  "You can't talk about sexual differences between men and women, (although) it's OK if they favor women," laughs [John] Tierney.  "You can say men are more likely to commit crimes, but you can't suggest that there might be some sexual difference that might predispose men to be more interested in a topic."  Google fired engineer James Damore merely for suggesting that sex differences might explain why more men choose to work in tech.  "Damore just pointed out very basic scientific research about differences between the sexes," argues Tierney.  "The experts in this, as soon as he published that memo, said, yes, he basically got the science right."  It's not as if women aren't doing well in life, says Tierney.

Happy Equal Pay Day:  The (other) holiday based on a lie.  It's the latest fake corporate-progressive virtue signalling excuse to increase everyone's sense of victimhood — and it's based on the complete lie known as the "gender pay gap."

Protecting Sex Traffickers is the New Women's March Feminism.  On the plus side, the Women's March has finally changed the conversation away from its support for Louis Farrakhan and his anti-Semitism.  "The shutting down of #Backpage is an absolute crisis for sex workers who rely on the site to safely get in touch with clients.  Sex workers rights are women's rights," the Women's March tweeted.  Backpage had been shut down by the DOJ for allegedly facilitating sex trafficking.  The new feminism of the Women's March had reduced "women's rights" to the right to be trafficked and then prostituted.  It almost makes Tamika Mallory's Farrakhan fandom look progressive.  But despite the criticism, the Women's March kept doubling down with retweets supporting its bizarre agenda.

Dear Feminists:  The Pay Gap Isn't Real.  Dear feminists who thinks the answer to everything is behaving like rabid shrews:  The myth of the gender pay gap has been busted more times than you've busted weight scales.  In efforts to be thorough, a brief breakdown: the "gap" stems from an average between the full time salaries of men and women.  Once experience, profession, hours worked, and other relevant data is factored in, the gap all but disappears.  Much like my patience for grousing ladies who can't math.

The Gender Pay Gap Is Nothing Compared With These Other Workplace Gaps.  According to the National Committee on Pay Equity, women would have to work until April 10 this year to earn the same as men made last year.  It's a clever way to put a spotlight on a Census figure showing the difference in median weekly earnings between men and women.  Of course, the claim that this gap is due to gender discrimination has been repeatedly and thoroughly debunked.  Economists have pointed out for years that when you control for things like career choices, job risks, actual hours worked, etc., the supposed gap disappears.  There's also a common-sense problem with the pay-gap claim.  Namely, if businesses could get away with paying women less for the exact same work, why would they hire men in the first place?

Women might get raped if they debate men, so this college debate tournament banned men.  It's unfair.  It's sexist.  And women might get raped.  That's why a "special [debate] tournament" held at the University of Vermont this past weekend banned men from competing, organizers and participants in the North American Women's and Gender Minorities Debate Championship told the Associated Press.

Bigotry of Bigotries; All Is Bigotry.  Anyway Ferguson recently convened a conference at Stanford's Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank.  No one much cared about what was discussed and debated.  For those who believe in diversity uber alles, a conference on history and public policy must be judged by the number of representatives from different oppressed groups. [...] The New York Times was appalled at the lack of diversity.  It blared out the shrill headline... there were no women at the conference.  Which means, to Times readers, that the whole thing was an exercise in bigotry.  You need not know anything else.

Time to tell Hillary goodbye.  Just when you thought the failed Democratic Russian-colluding and dossier-paying Democratic nominee for president of the United States had waddled away into the sunset, Hillary Rodham Clinton re-appears in India.  Yes, India.  Talking about women's rights.  Yes, India.  And she opened her mouth yet again to insult the "deplorables" and American women she has fought so hard to stand up for and support for 40 years.  Well, those women smart enough to not vote for her. [...] This was in India, which has a horrible record on its overall treatment of women.  In India, where women are treated not even as second-class citizens, chastised for being from the wrong class and where they have their husbands chosen for them — that's India's tradition.

Stop Diminishing the Men.  There is a "gender crisis" in America today, and it has nothing to do with the alleged 63 varieties of genders espoused by leftists.  Nor does it have to do with women's marches.  Quite simply it deals with the "expendable male," where, "in the space of just a few decades[,] American women have managed to demote men from respected providers and protectors to being unnecessary, irrelevant, and expendable" (Venker & Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism).

At an All-Women's College, You Can't Call Them 'Women' Anymore.  Since its inception in 1837, Mt. Holyoke College, set in South Hadley, Massachusetts, has been graduating luminaries — such as poet Emily Dickinson, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and a myriad of other individuals.  As the first of the Seven Sisters — a consortium of prestigious East Coast liberal arts colleges for women and the female equivalent to the once all-male Ivy League — Mount Holyoke is now urging its professors to drop the word "women" from their vernacular when referring to their students, according to the school's website.  In other words:  At an all-women's college, you should no longer call a woman a woman.

Prof wants colleges to pay women extra for 'emotional labor'.  A communications studies professor wants colleges to compensate female faculty members for their "emotional labor," such as "supportive communication" and generally "making a person 'feel good.'"  Brandi Lawless argues that emotional labor is equivalent to other academic work, such as teaching classes and grading assignments, blaming the "neoliberal agenda" for making emotional labor an expectation.

Women's college instructs professors not to call students 'women'.  An all-women's college in Massachusetts tells its teachers not to say "women" in the classroom but rather use the word "students."  Professors are instructed to say "Mount Holyoke students" instead of "Mount Holyoke women," as well as avoiding statements like "We're all women here..." or referring to "the two genders" as part of a Teaching & Learning Initiative.

Hillary Clinton's Woman-Bashing Is Why Women Find Feminism So Distasteful.  [Scroll down]  Clinton's comments weren't simply problematic because they cast men, once again, in a negative light.  What was even more egregious but seemed to escape notice by some is that she also stripped women of any free will, a posture the modern feminist movement has increasingly adopted.  Whether it's a conversation about the so-called wage gap, the political gap between sexes, or sexual assault on college campuses, feminists more and more overlook how women make choices, and those decisions contribute to the realities of our society.

'Believe All Women' at Your Peril.  The category of domestic violence has been a boon for feminists, who argue that IPV (intimate partner violence) is almost entirely one-sided, with women the vast majority of victims.  But I know of many innocent men falsely accused by their partners, who have lost everything, including the right to visit their children, and of others who decide to plea-bargain rather than spend years in court.  Plea-bargaining obviously swells the number of ostensibly violent men, a welcome datum for the feminist thesis.

Monica Lewinsky goes #MeToo and just doesn't get it.  Monica Lewinsky is back again, in yet another new and improved incarnation (what is this, her eighth?), this time seeking relevance as part of the #MeToo movement.  Before this one, she made comebacks as a champion for privacy, a champion against cyber-bullying, and a champion for impartial jurors, and probably some other stuff, as well as a comeback for selling handbags.  Each comeback brought a big claim of being newer, better, and Over It... and well, she's doing it now.

Feminism and What Makes a Woman.  [Scroll down]  These people loudly proclaim themselves feminists.  All they want, they say, is equality.  In reality, they already have equality — equality under the law, that is.  But that is not what they really seek.  Truth be told, what they seek is total dominance and unrestrained power.  Except for seeing these creatures from afar, I do not know these women.  They are the Toxic Feminists.  They are nothing like the women I know.

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence.  The liberals say [President] Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal obsession with destroying his presidency.  Yet Vice President Mike Pence is one of the finest people around, and they can't stand him, either.  Big surprise.  Remember how they ridiculed Pence for saying he has a rule that he won't dine alone with a woman who's not his wife or attend events where alcohol is served without his wife?  Pence didn't originate the rule.  I've heard variations of it from Christians, including my pastor, for years.  Well, the left wouldn't tolerate that innocuous practice of self-discipline.  No, his rule to avoid any appearance of impropriety or unnecessary temptation incurred the wrath of some liberals.  They said that refusing to meet with women is a form of discrimination because it deprives them of informal networking opportunities that could advance their careers.

Assemblywoman at forefront of #MeToo movement accused of sexual misconduct.  Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, chair of the Legislative Women's Caucus who has been at the forefront of the movement against sexual harassment in the state Capitol, has herself become the subject of allegations of sexual misconduct.  The Bell Gardens Democrat said she would "participate fully" in an investigation.

The inevitable is happening to the #MeToo movement.  Anger-driven social movements do not moderate themselves, but they all eventually run into obstacles and begin to decline.  #MeToo may be entering a new phase as stories like this proliferate.

Flashback: Democrats Defended Sen. Sherrod Brown Against Wife Abuse Claims.  When Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel noted in 2012 that Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) had been accused of abusing his wife, liberals accused Mandel of abusing women by raising the issue.  Rita Smith, executive director of the Denver-based National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, declined at the time to criticize Brown.  Instead, she defended Brown's voting record on women's issues.  And she told an interviewer that Mandel's attack on Brown was "'actually abusive,' because he is putting Brown's family, including his former wife, in a negative spotlight, 'and that is abusive of women.'"  That is how many Democrats really feel about politicians who abuse women.  As long as they have a "D" after their names, and vote for abortion, they are almost incapable of abuse.

The Jordan Peterson Phenomenon.  [Canadian psychologist and university professor Jordan] Peterson is clearly filling a gaping spiritual vacuum experienced by a vast community, primarily young men, who have been deprived of agency, self-confidence and life-meaning.  And he is doing so by representing the insights of his sources to readers and viewers unfamiliar with these magisterial texts and cultural giants — a privation owing in large measure to poor upbringing and an anorexic education.  Pajama Boys living in their parents' basement drinking hot chocolate rather than the Castalian water of knowledge, and men young and old who have been infected and oppressed by the feminist preaching of toxic masculinity, are in desperate need of moral revitalization and intellectual supervision.

Hillary Clinton:  President of Women.  Hillary has spent her entire career in public life showing solidarity with her sisters.  Just ask Juanita Broaddrick.  Or Paula Jones.  Or Kathleen Willey.  Or Elizabeth Gracen.  Or Gennifer Flowers.  Or Dolly Kyle Browning.  Or Monica Lewinsky.  Or any of the other women whose lives have been changed forever by the Clintons.  The list goes on and on.  They'll all tell you how much support Hillary has given them.

Prof says 'male-dominated' textbooks deter women from Econ.  A University of Michigan professor recently presented a paper at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association arguing that "male-dominated" textbooks may be partly to blame for the lack of women in the field.  Betsey Stevenson found that 77% of the people represented in 8 leading texts are male, and concluded that "concrete steps" are needed to make textbooks "reflect the diversity of the student body we would ideally like to attract."

Why Leftists Hate Masculinity.  An ongoing mantra of the left is that everyone is a victim, with a singular carve-out for white men.  A large group of the female population has embraced this chant.  While there may be a number of grievances put forth by this movement, there also comes a theme that is particularly dangerous:  the feminist attack on masculinity.  This is derived not only from feminists; it comes from the left in general.  There has emerged a war on masculinity.  Why?  Because masculine men are harder to control under tyrannical socialism.  The modern beta male, on the other hand, craves socialism.  This is why the left has branded masculinity as toxic:  it stands as a roadblock to their endgame.  Leftists blame, of all things, masculinity for the recent spate of sexual harassment scandals.  For eons, masculinity has been considered a natural and even required trait of being male, but it is now apparently the reason for deviancy.  Who knew?  The glaring problem with this argument is that the men who are typically being accused of such transgressions are anything but masculine.

How you dress and how you are addressed.  I am way past tired of all the sexual harassment claims that have been filling the news — News that is many times being mouthed by females who are wearing what I would call come on clothing.  It is one thing to claim sexual harassment when the female is modestly dressed and portrays a modest kind of character but if anyone takes an honest look at how most females dress and have done so for decades — each decade shedding more cloth and displaying more skin — and then claim sexual harassment — well, I for one just don't buy it. [...] There have been and still are many females claiming the victim role who will stand in front of the cameras dressed with their boobs showing — hems on skirts higher than an elephants eye and sobbing for the cameras to prove they have been assaulted.

CNN: 'It's a Wonderful Life' Is, 'Inherently Sexist,' Should Be 'Retired'.  Even holiday classics like It's a Wonderful Life have come under vicious scrutiny in our politically correct, brave new world, with CNN openly questioning whether the beloved film is secretly sexist and should, therefore, be "retired" from American culture. [...] Seen through the revisionist prism of radical feminism, the classic Frank Capra film starring James Stewart and Donna Reed becomes part of a patriarchal plot to keep women subjected to men.

The Editor says...
Banning a movie is the same as burning every copy of a specific book.  This story is noteworthy because usually the people who are outraged about censorship are on the political left.  There are thousands of movies that should never have been made, and tens of thousands of books, journals and diaries that should never have been written.  But burning them all is destruction of history, and history is more important than your hurt feelings.

Feminists want women to be liberated from men, marriage and children — no wonder they never use the word.  Feminists always use the word "women" rather than "feminist" — the women's movement, women's studies, Women's March, etc.  They do this to give the impression that all women think one way.  Or should think one way.  Except all women don't think the same way, which is why feminism can get sort of tricky.  Because in the 18 years I've been writing about feminism and its impact on the culture, one thing I've learned is that the word itself is entirely subjective.

Anita Hill is not Hollywood's answer.  Her 'they all do it' defense of Clinton doesn't fly.  Aspiring actresses and Hollywood career women may have cheered when they heard show biz execs tapped Anita Hill to lead a commission examining issues of sexual misconduct and inequality in the entertainment industry.  As a former victim of an actual physical attack and attempted rape more than 20 years ago, all I can say is, "I deeply wish this was truly a win for women."  Besides the obvious problem of Hollywood bigwigs choosing to politicize this problem, the deeper issue is that Hill is not the advocate women need, especially in an industry that is led by many clearly hypocritical men.  The women of Hollywood may have grown up learning about Hill as a heroine, but as we've come — all too painfully — to learn, academia and media have painted a picture of her over the past quarter-century that is divorced from reality.

'Linda Sarsour Supervised My Sexual Assault'.  Islamist apologist and self-styled "feminist" Linda Sarsour has been accused of "supervising" the sexual assault of another Muslim woman.  Asmi Fathelbab, a private contractor who worked under Sarsour for a year at the Arab American Association, provided a harrowing testimony of her experience for The Daily Caller.  Fathelabab recounts how she came to Sarsour after being repeatedly sexually assaulted by a Muslim man who lived in the same building as the Arab American Association.  Sarsour called her a liar, saying that the Muslim man was God-fearing, told her to stop complaining and threatened to write her up for disciplinary action.

Linda Sarsour Comes Out Of The Socialist Closet.  In my documentary "America Under Seige:  Soviet Islam," I made the case that many American Muslim leaders are also Marxists.  One among them is well known activist Linda Sarsour.  The Brooklyn radical recently formally joined this country's largest crypto-communist organization, the 30,000 strong Democratic Socialists of America.

Linda Sarsour Alleged To Have Covered For Sexual Assault.  Linda Sarsour, Women's March organizer and leftist darling, is now accused of not only turning a blind eye to sexual abuse and assault in her own office, but also blaming the alleged victim for bringing the allegations to her attention.  Here are the facts as presented by former employee Asmi Fathelbab, who worked for the Arab American Association while Sarsour was executive director there.  Fathelbab claims that she was stalked and sexually assaulted by another employee, Majed Seif.  The details Fathelbab provides are horrifying. [...] If this were a Christian organization who was covering for sexual assault by claiming that the man being accused was a "God-fearing mean" who was "always at the church," do you think that the press would buy that story?

Linda Sarsour, Islamist Bully.  You remember Linda Sarsour, the Palestinian activist and virulent anti-Semite who has been feted in leftist circles for opposing Israel and for saying that no woman could be both a Zionist and a feminist.  Sarsour also wants the world to live under Shariah Law, because after all, it allows wife beating and jails rape victims for having sex outside of marriage.  Just what feminists have been fighting for.  Now, it turns out that Sarsour has taken a soft line against sexual harassment.  Who could have imagined such a thing?  Taking a page from the George Stephanopoulos playbook Sarsour bullied a woman who had been sexually harassed, the better to silence her.

Report: Muslim "Feminist" Beloved By The Left "Supervised" Sexual Assault Of Other Muslim Women.  Linda Sarsour has become something of a feminist celebrity here in the United States in recent years, most notably because she is Muslim and for her willingness to repeatedly attack Donald Trump publicly.  This celebrity has allowed her to raise tens of millions of dollars for her Arab American Association, travel the world giving interviews and leading "feminist" marches like the ones that followed Mr. Trump's inauguration early last year.  Third-tier celebrities like Alyssa Milano have repeatedly applauded Sarsour's efforts.  Well, guess what?  Apparently Linda Sarsour is no feminist but rather a stooge working for Muslim men who see her as merely a tool to further enact anti-women/anti-gay/anti-American policies here in the United States.  Sarsour's duplicity even goes so far as her allegedly overseeing the mistreatment of women she worked with by Muslim men who Sarsour then defended as "God-fearing."

Linda Sarsour:  A "Good Muslim" Can't Sexual Assault.  The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do.  Asmi Fathelbab, a former employee of the Arab American Association in New York when feminist heroine Linda Sarsour was its executive director, has accused Sarsour of dismissing her claims of sexual assault and harassment, and following through on threats to destroy Fathelbab's attempts to get a job if she didn't retract the charges.

Guilt By Accusation Is The New NormTime has named #MeToo its 'Person of the Year' and every other day the hashtag lynch mob drags someone else in front of the spotlight.  The accusations range from rape to harsh words.  The evidence is hearsay.  The target is shamed, fired from every job he ever held and purged from polite society.  Some are guilty.  Some might be innocent.  But we'll never know because there's no investigation.  The time frame between accusation and purge is hours or days when it takes your average HR department a week to file a form.  Just like in every totalitarian leftist state, the accusation is enough.  And then it's on to the next one. [...] And don't ask any questions.  Only bad people ask questions.  Only bad people want proof.  Only bad people don't instantly believe an accusation.  And you're either with #MeToo or with its targets.  But maybe we should start asking a few questions.

SAS considers watering down its gruelling selection tests to give women a better chance of joining the elite unit.  Britain's most elite special forces unit could allow women to take an easier test to increase their chances of joining, it has been reported.  The SAS, whose selection process is considered among the toughest in the world, could be planning to permit female applicants to carry lighter rucksacks during gruelling marches.  Troops hoping to enter the legendary unit are expected to pass uniquely difficult challenges — some of which are so intense that candidates have died trying to complete them.

The Editor says...
Do you want an effective special forces unit, or do you want to promote political correctness?  You can't do both.  Including women just for the sake of feminism will mean nothing if important military battles are lost as a result.

Feminism and the Fake Indian.  I've lost track, frankly, of the Hollywood figures accused of such improprieties.  Although the way things are going, I'm expecting the next Oscar ceremony will be an all-woman event.  What makes this even more ridiculous is that most of these men have regularly proclaimed their allegiance to the neo-feminists and their favored policies, most particularly support for abortion on demand and without any restrictions, and Planned Parenthood.  I recall their hilarity at Pence's rule of never dining alone with a woman not his wife.  They pitched the line that conservatives are Neolithic prudes who hate women — as they were sexually abusing all the women in their reach, most often women who lacked the backing and stature to fight back.

The Pelosi Rule:  Our Pigs Are Better Than Their Pigs.  Struggling to summon a defense of John Conyers over the weekend, Nancy Pelosi looked a bit like a malfunctioning robot with a depleted battery.  But after warming up, she finally hit on the button "icon."  Pelosi uttered the word icon as a cue to end all discussion.  She had spoken her formula of absolution over Conyers and now it was time for NBC's Chuck Todd to let the penitent go in peace.  Pelosi's comment completes feminism's arc of hypocrisy:  Clarence Thomas's tormentors have become John Conyers's defenders.  The same feminists who scoffed at Thomas's description of his hearing as a "high-tech lynching" now play the race card for Conyers as a civil rights "icon."  The long-awaited "reckoning" looks more like the tired rationalization, as feminists, for all their advertised anguish in recent days, return to what can be called the Pelosi rule:  our pigs are better than their pigs.

The Evil That Is Men.  In the midst of the warlock hunt for male sexual predators most sensible voices have recommended that we avoid blaming all men for the misbehavior, at time felonious, of a few bad men.  It makes perfectly good sense.  Most of us avoid generalizing from a few particulars.  And yet, some few cannot wrap their minds around that level of complexity — they tell us that all men are bad, and very, very bad indeed.  After all, if five decades of intense feminist consciousness raising has produced Harvey Weinstein and Charley Rose and Brett Ratner... men must be worse than we all thought.  So say the simple-minded.  Among them we must count someone named Stephen Marche.  A Canadian essayist, a man whose background is in literature, Marche has taken to the pages of the New York Times to indict the male gender, for being as bad as Freud said it was.  When Marche speaks of the unexamined brutality of male libido he shows us that he has been living under a rock.  For the past five decades we have been talking about nothing else.

How Anita Hill Betrayed Feminism.  Yesterday, I discussed how feminists betrayed feminism by defending Bill Clinton against credible and, in one notorious case admitted, allegations of serious sexual misconduct.  These allegations were made just a few years after the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill controversy had put the issue of sexual harassment front-and-center in the nation's consciousness.  Feminists (except those who knew Thomas personally) believed Hill's claims.  And they argued (just as they do today) that, ordinarily, female accusers should be believed.  But when Bill Clinton became the subject of serious sexual harassment allegations, feminists refused to credit the claims or, when forced to do so, discounted them as irrelevant.  They also attacked the accusers.  Consequently, the heightened consciousness of the problem of sexual harassment that existed following the Thomas-Hill hearings subsided after Clinton's presidency.  Even leftists now acknowledge this.

Broadway Stars Honor Hillary Clinton At Planned Parenthood Fundraiser.  Broadway stars were proud to host failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Sunday night for "an evening that was all about women, by women, and for women," according to InStyle.  "Tony and Grammy winners packed The Town Hall theater in N.Y.C. for a special concert all about women's empowerment called 'Double Standards,'" reports InStyle. [...] The Broadway stars clearly did not second-guess the prospect of honoring Hillary Clinton as some beacon of women's rights while multiple allegations suggest she aided her husband in silencing several of his sexual assault victims throughout the years.  Stars in attendance said the goal of the concert was to get people talking about women's rights.

The farce of Bill Clinton's "reckoning".  Is there anything in the news more farcical than liberals and feminists saying it's time for "a reckoning with Bill Clinton"?  Clinton was credibly accused of severe sexual misconduct by several women.  One of them, Juanita Broaddrick, alleged that Clinton raped her.  Her claim was highly credible, inasmuch as she complained contemporaneously to five people.  Clinton also admitted, after brazenly lying about it, to having sex with Monica Lewinsky.  The White House intern was barely out of her teens at the time.  If Roy Moore, against whom no allegation of sexual misconduct has been conclusively established, is unfit to occupy one of 100 Senate seats, then surely Bill Clinton was unfit to serve as our president.

Alt-Left Insanity:  Libs Think Being a Real Man Is 'Toxic'.  Talking about spree killers, [Amanda] Marcotte says:  "There is a common theme here:  Toxic masculinity."  This is one of those think pieces that pretends to be rational when it's really not.  Actual quote:  "Toxic masculinity aspires to toughness but is, in fact, an ideology of living in fear:  The fear of ever seeming soft, tender, weak, or somehow less than manly."  Notice how liberals never "live in fear" about being other than themselves?  There's no major media outlet pushy wimpy pajama boys to be actual men, grow up, move out of their [...] basements and get jobs.  No, the media ideal is to take men who act, you know, as men, and get them to act more feminine.  It's a deliberate strategy. [...] According to Marcotte, "proving manhood and warding off anything considered feminine or emasculating is the main reason why we have so many [...] shootings in the United States."  That's it.  She's solved all the mass shootings.  It's not media celebrating violence or liberals refusing to lock up violent criminals.  Must be men refusing to be like women or perhaps some previously undiscovered gender.

The Forgotten Great American Male:  Who's Your Daddy?  Women, minorities, and other so-called marginalized groups have multiple champions. [...] Yet no one has spoken for the average American male in a very long time, it seems.  These are the John Wayne or even Jimmy Stewart kind of guys — men who made America great, who are now long gone, left on the roadside, passed over, or passed away.  It's taboo even to mention them.  If you did, you'd be called misogynistic, sexist, racist, homophobic, "toxic," whatever.  That's part of why Donald Trump's campaign took off like a rocket — he crossed over the forbidden lines of corrosive political correctness.

Michelle Obama:  We raise men to feel 'entitled'.  Michelle Obama is questioning whether men may feel "entitled" and "self-righteous" because of mothers' inclination to protect them.  "It's like the problem in the world today is we love our boys and we raise our girls," the former first lady told poet Elizabeth Alexander Wednesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.  "We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men.  And I think we pay for that a little bit," Obama, 53, said.  The mom to daughters Malia, 19, and Sasha, 16, continued, "And that's a 'we' thing because we're raising them."

The Manipulative Feminism of Megyn Kelly.  [Megyn] Kelly's attempt to put herself in the middle of the "discussion about sexual harassment" only undercuts its seriousness, reducing it to bickering among overpaid, egotistical celebrities.  Lost in all the ponderous talk about the need for "systemic change" is the glaring irony that figures such as Megyn Kelly gained, not lost, jobs from that system.  Were that system abolished, Megyn Kelly wouldn't have a career.

Weinstein triggers civil war on the feminist left.  All is working out as I hoped.  The decades of hypocrisy on the left, tolerating piggish behavior by men so long as they bow down to the feminist idol of abortion and hatred of God's law, are finally coming due.  John Nolte of Breitbart captures the magic of this moment, as two feminists, already wounded in the madness of the past year, engage in rhetorical battle. [...] There are plenty more battles yet to be fought, as a movement built on hypocrisy suddenly has to face its own perfidy.

Feminist Hypocrisy and Silence Behind Weinstein Era of Abuse.  What this entire Weinstein scandal does do is expose the hypocrisy of the feminist movement which has surrendered its moral authority over women by supporting the evil doers just because they support abortion rights.  The Hollywood sex abusers have been known for decades but all of them are liberal Democrats who support and fund the party and Planned Parenthood so they are immune from punishment.  It will be interesting to see what happens to the Harvey Weinsteins and other sexual perverts and abusers caught in the scandal fallout.  I've read some really stupid online comments from the self righteous who haven't a clue about the trauma inflicted on the women and children by pedophiles and Viagra fueled powerful hedonists in society.

Are you weak if you make your man a sandwich?  This is why real men don't marry feminists.  Have you ever made your husband a sandwich?  If so, you should be ashamed of yourself.  Don't you realize such behavior sets women back decades?  That's the message of a new article in The Daily Telegraph, entitled "When making a sandwich is a crime against feminism," about an Australian woman named Maddie who asked a Facebook group of 26,186 mothers whether anyone had some yummy alternatives for her husband's lunches, which she said she makes for him every day.  Now that's what anyone I know would call a nice wife.  But that's not what Maddie was called on Facebook.

Harvey Weinstein Is a Product of the Left's Rebellion Against God.  While I'm sure that some people in Hollywood were unaware, it's naïve to believe that Weinstein's behavior wasn't enabled by many Hollywood power-brokers, famous actors, and leftist politicians who could've stopped it.  Even worse, many of those feigning shock and dismay are probably busy googling "non-extradition countries" while dictating a denunciation of Weinstein to a spokesperson.  After all, this is the industry that gave a standing ovation to convicted pedophile Roman Polanski, continues to fete alleged rapist Woody Allen, and grovels at the feet of Bill Clinton, a man who sexually abused women who were under his power.

Who Would You Want For A Boss — Mike Pence or Harvey Weinstein?  This isn't a difficult question.  Unless you live in Hollywood, and you were willing to accept this sexual abuse because it was Harvey Weinstein.  So long as he said all the right things, gave the right people money, and supported all the right causes, he continued to prey on women.

Contradictions and Condescension.  When a decent old stiff such as Mitt Romney talks earnestly about looking for suitable female job candidates and clumsily distills the effort into the phrase "binders full of women", all the smart sophisticated types jump on it and make it a punchline for an antiquated condescension that only confirms how irredeemably misogynist the GOP is.  By contrast, when Harvey Weinstein corners a TV reporter in the corridor of his restaurant and [...]

Harvey Weinstein should force media to admit Hillary Clinton is not a feminist icon.  It's out in the open now that Hollywood giant Harvey Weinstein has a rancid history of behaving inappropriately with women, confirming what many people suspected but the national media never admitted:  Hillary Clinton isn't a feminist icon.  For someone so heralded by the media as an example of female empowerment, Clinton is close with a lot of abusers.  An extensive report published Thursday by the New York Times cited several women by name, including actress Ashley Judd, who claim to have been sexually harassed by Weinstein.

Michelle Obama Says Conservative Women Don't Have Their Own Voices.  Michelle Obama believes the 42 percent of women and 53 percent of white women who voted against Hillary Clinton only did so because someone — presumably our patriarchs — told us to.  "Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their [sic] own voice," the former first lady declared, speaking at a conference in Boston.  Believe it or not, the pomposity only got worse from there.

Megyn [Kelly] Responds To Saudi Arabia Letting Women Drive — By Criticizing America.  In response to the news that Saudi Arabia is now allowing women to drive, NBC's Megyn Kelly criticized the United States for having "such a long way to go" on women's rights.  After announcing that the Muslim country is now allowing women to drive, Kelly almost immediately turned to criticizing perceived gender inequality in the United States.  [Video clip]

Women's March Stays Silent on Saudi Arabia Allowing Women to Drive.  King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia finally decided to end one of the world's most oppressive policies against women, issuing a decree on Tuesday [9/26/2017] allowing women to drive.  In 2017, this is an incredibly big deal for women's equality.  In Saudi Arabia, women still need a male guardian's permission to marry, divorce, travel, open a bank account, get a job, or have elective surgery.  Earning the right to drive is only a first step toward true equality, but it's an important one.  And ironically, the Women's March was silent on the matter, despite pretending for the past year to care about women.

The Thought Police Strike Again.  Every revolution needs to master a new "language" to achieve uniformity of expression and thought.  George Orwell, in 1984, called the replacement language "Newspeak".  Cardiff Metropolitan University, one of the largest in Britain, compiled a list of 34 words that it "encouraged" teachers and students to stop using, and replaced them with "gender-neutral" terms.  "Fireman" should be replaced by "firefighter"; "mankind" should be replaced by banned "humanity", and so on.  Princeton University also expunged the word "man" in its various uses, in favor of supposedly more "inclusive" expressions.  City University of New York decided to ban "Mr." and "Mrs."  California State University replaced commercial terms such as "businessman", "mailman", "manpower" and "salesman" to avoid that horrendous, forbidden word.  While at it, why not also purge Christianity's religious language?  Some of the most famous theological universities, such as Duke and Vanderbilt, invited professors and staff to use "inclusive" language even when they are referring to God, because the masculine pronouns are "a cornerstone of patriarchy".  This politically correct nonsense highlights even further the infantilization of our culture — such as the demand for "safe spaces" and "trigger warnings".

Hope Hicks Shows Accomplishments for Women, by Women, Count Only If You're a Democrat.  This week, Hope Hicks became communications director for President Donald Trump, joining press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to make the first female-led White House communications team in history.  Naturally, this was celebrated in every major female-oriented publication.  Just kidding. [...] To be clear, I didn't expect Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and the rest of these "women" magazines to celebrate Hope Hicks or any other woman in the White House for their politics.  In fact, they've made it pretty clear where they stand on Donald Trump's presidency.  But I do expect these "feminist" magazines to celebrate the fact that yet another young woman has climbed to the top in her field — in the White House, no less.

Toxic Femininity Hides Jealousy and Corruption.  The left has been pushing the notion that masculinity is "toxic" and must be rooted out.  Classes of college students are propagandized to this point of view, often mandatorily imposed.  "Feminist" speakers and books for young girls promote it and women's magazines are full of such drivel.  This week it's apparent that it's this kind of nonsense that's toxic, not masculinity.  Often it's a cover for jealousy and a corrupt search for power.

Google Women.  Why aren't there more women criminals?!  Men in jail outnumber women by a ratio of 14-to-1.  We male stutterers outnumber women, too.  This isn't fair!  We need more affirmative action!  These disparities must be caused by sex discrimination because everyone knows there are no real differences between genders.  After all, Google fired engineer James Damore for daring to suggest that there is a biological reason men dominate tech leadership.  Google's CEO said:  "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive."  Then the media lied about what Damore wrote.

Candidate To Be First Female Navy SEAL Officer Quits After A Week: Report.  A woman aiming to become the first female Navy SEAL officer quit about a week into the initial training, Task and Purpose reported Thursday [8/10/2017].  The unidentified female candidate dropped out in early August during a three-week course in San Diego that began July 24.

Vast Majority Of Women Failing To Pass Marine Corps Combat Standards.  Newly-released data shows that the vast majority of women are failing to pass Marine Corps combat fitness requirements at boot camp, while virtually all men are making it through to the next stage.  A total of 51 female Marine recruits arrived at boot camp with the intent of joining combat arms, but just 25 percent of the women passed the MOS Classification Standard, which is a test for combat jobs, Marine Corps Times reported Friday [8/11/2017].  That is, only 13 women met base requirements.  However, the rate of passage for the men who went to boot camp with the same aim over the same time period of Oct. 1 to May 31 was 96 percent.

Women Cannot Compete With Men Athletically.  Period.  So Why Are They In Combat?  Women are weaker and slower than men.  Generally speaking, the strongest woman is only as strong as the weakest man.  They are more prone to stress fractures and other injuries.  The average 20-something woman has the lung capacity of a 50-something man.  That is why the military, in trying to force women into combat, must "gender-norm" basic training.  Indeed, a lot of women can't get by the gender-normed tests, so now they just push them through, qualified or no.  That's been happening in fighter pilot training for 20 years.  It's the reason Lt. Kara Hultgreen splashed an F14 and wound up dead in 1994.  The Navy wanted a woman fighter pilot.  It got one.  And she died.

PETA Says Eating Cheese is Sexist.  From the same people who declared that milk was a symbol of white supremacy comes this blisteringly-hot take:  cheese is the most sexist food there is, cows are regularly raped on farms, and the act of eating cheese is failing to combat sexism.

Cafe charges men more than women.  A cafe owner has explained why she charges men more than women, and allows ladies priority seating.  Alex O'Brien, who owns Handsome Her, a vegan cafe in Melbourne, Australia, says she gives female customers a better deal to raise awareness of the gender pay gap.  It's been dubbed the 'man tax'.

Narcissus Revises Christianity, Makes It Liberal.  [Scroll down]  Jesus gathered twelve disciples and did not include a single female.  Nowhere does Jesus sit quietly and declare that a woman's experience has inspired Him to reverse a godly principle so that women can be spared difficulty.  Of the many miracles of healing and demon-busting performed by Jesus, no abortion occurs.  The notion that women must abort so that they can avoid difficulty, ostracism, or a slowing of their career goes utterly against Jesus's instructions to accept hardship and find strength in God and His Word.  Jesus tells us not to worry about tomorrow, to avoid stressing about clothing or money or a place to live, and to hedge against the error of gaining the world while losing our souls.  That He would suspend such philosophies upon hearing a pregnant woman say she can't deal with the trials of giving birth and raising a child makes no sense, given His ministry and many statements about humility and putting others before ourselves.

Hell hath no fury like a feminist scorned.  Perhaps you think Democrats are the most outraged by President Trump, but even they can't sink as low as feminists can.  Yes, feminists are Democrats, too.  But they're in a category all their own, as Lisa Bloom, the feminist attorney who's responsible for bringing down Bill O'Reilly, proved in spades at the press conference about Kathy Griffin's choice to pose with a bloodied, decapitated mock-up of Trump's head.

Hillary Clinton is making fools out of feminists.  Hillary, who got one big job by covering up for her husband's philandering, got another because he had strayed once again (and been impeached in the process), while the three jobs she held that required executive competence — healthcare reform and her two runs for president — could be studied in as examples of cosmic mismanagement.  So, of course, she is now the ideal of millions of women, who swear she's the soul of selfmade girl power, who would in due course have made a great president — if only men had given her a chance.

Newtonian Physics is Oppressive to Marginalized People.  A feminist scholar has published a paper claiming that Newtonian physics is oppressive and that we must use "quantum feminisms" to make the science more intersectional.  In a paper for The Minnesota Review, culture and gender-studies researcher Whitney Stark argues that Newton's understanding of physics is oppressive because it has "separated beings" based on their "binary and absolute differences" — a structure that she calls "hierarchical and exploitative" — and the same kind of system is "embedded in many structures of classification," making it "part of the apparatus that enables oppression."

Sponsored Links by Black and Muslim Women Are Invisible to the Feminist Movement.  From its beginnings in the 1970s, the feminist movement has been dominated by professional women.  As a result, it has focused on sexual liberation and glass ceilings while the majority of black and white women alike reject abortion on demand and favor traditional marriage.  This schism continues today:  The Women's March on Washington excluded feminists who support abortion restrictions, and subsequently, the Democratic leadership announced it would support only pro-choice candidates.  In the movement's early years, feminist activism on violence against women was roadblocked by black activists who feared it would be used as an attack on black men.  As a result, there was a virtual silence on the disproportionately high rates of domestic violence experienced by black women.

Minority students feel 'marginalized' by historic building's 'imposing, masculine' paneling.  Some minority students at the University of Michigan have apparently felt intimidated by the interior wood paneling found throughout the historic Michigan Union building.  Anna Wibbelman, former president of Building a Better Michigan, an organization that voices student concerns about university development, stated at a student government meeting in late March that "minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling" found throughout the 100-year-old building, the meeting's minutes state.

The Feminization of Everything Fails Our Boys.  Make no mistake, if these numbers showed an equivalent (and increasing) educational gender gap running in the opposite direction, the feminist Left would declare a cultural emergency.  Indeed, it has declared a cultural emergency in spite of the dominant educational performance of women.  As [Mark] Perry notes, our colleges are full of "women's centers" and "gender equity" initiatives that are dedicated exclusively to female success (or almost exclusively; some non-gender-binary folks get gender-equity aid as well).  When will there stop being a crisis for women on campus?  When they reach two-thirds of the higher-education population?  When three out of every four college grads are women?

Piers Morgan Upset Over Emma Watson's Genderless Award.  MTV has been getting a lot of praise from liberal groups for awarding the first genderless acting award on a major entertainment awards show.  But the once-leftist Piers Morgan did not admire their decision.  On his iTV Good Morning Britain program, Morgan said he wanted to smash his head "into a brick wall" over Emma Watson winning such a gender-neutral award.  He called the affair "a masterpiece of political correctness."  He continued over the course of the entire opening segment to berate the idea of removing masculinity from our societies.

The True Goal of Feminism.  What's perhaps most interesting about the book is [Jill] Filipovic's ability to correctly identify issues that prey uniquely on modern women — single motherhood, sexual assault and domestic violence, eating disorders, the hypersexualization of advertisements and the resulting objectification of women — and yet to so completely miss the mark on the causes of and solutions to these ailments. [...] As a result, her remedies are largely useless, except as a means of understanding why modern feminism can never provide effective answers to this crisis.

Feminism Has a Ferocity Problem.  [Hollywood is] crafting girlhood into stereotypical boyhood, and pop culture is going to extreme lengths to give girls that boyish fighting spirit.  Perhaps nothing personifies this effort more than the "fearless girl" statue now squaring off against the charging bull of Wall Street in downtown Manhattan.  It's become a place of pilgrimage, where women pay homage to the new feminine ideal and woke men pledge allegiance to female ferocity. [...] On its own terms, the statue is absurd.  Taken together with the charging bull, the entire art installation would be more properly titled "Where Are Her Parents?" or "Seconds from Tragedy."

The Dark Side of Hillary Clinton's Electoral Rationalizations.  At this point, it's safe to say that Nimrata Randhawa has a far, far better chance to be the first female president of the United States than Hillary Clinton.  But here's the question:  When or if Nimrata (she goes by "Nikki") — a conservative, Indian-American daughter of immigrants who married Michael Haley, became governor of South Carolina, and is now the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — wins a presidential election, will Hillary's friends and supporters hail Haley's ascension to the White House as a tremendous achievement for women?  Will the fans of intersectional feminism laud the ultimate success of a woman of color?

Gender Pay Gap?  What About The Workplace Death Gap?  Economist Mark Perry has for years noted that there's an even bigger and far more consequential gender gap in the workplace — one that literally means the difference between life and death.  He notes that official government data show that men suffer almost all of the workplace fatalities that take place in a given year.  In 2015, for example, there were 4,836 workplace deaths, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Of those, 4,492 were men, and 344 were women.  In other words, men suffered 93% of workplace fatalities that year.  This wasn't some aberration.  From 2011 through 2015, men accounted for 92.5% of all workplace deaths. [...] This huge gap has nothing to do with discrimination, of course.  It has everything to do with the type of jobs men and women voluntarily choose to take.

'Equal Pay Day' this year is April 4 — the next 'Equal Occupational Fatality Day' will be on January 21, 2029.  Every year the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) publicizes its bogus feminist holiday known as Equal Pay Day to bring public attention to a completely spurious apples-to-oranges comparison of incomes by gender.  According to the NCPE, Equal Pay Day will fall on Tuesday, April 4 this year, based on a 20% unadjusted difference in median annual earnings for women and men in 2015 (most recent data available) when absolutely nothing relevant is controlled for that would explain income differences like hours worked, marital status, number of children, education, occupation, and the number of years of continuous uninterrupted job experience.  Therefore, Equal Pay Day on April 4 this year misleadingly represents how far into 2017 a typical woman will allegedly have to continue working to earn the same income that her male counterpart earned last year for doing the exact same job.  That's not only illegal, it's completely out-of-touch with reality.  How many organizations today have a dual pay scale with a different wage for the same position based on gender?  Probably none.

Womyn? Womxn?  Womban?  Taxpayer-Funded University Ponders Alternate Spellings For 'Woman'.  Missouri State University sponsored an hour-long event last week dedicated to the various ways fringe feminist activists can misspell the word "woman."  The event, entitled "Womyn, Wymen," was held in the taxpayer-funded school's Multicultural Resource Center Annex, reports The Standard, Missouri State's newspaper.  Yvania Garcia-Pusateri, the executive director of Missouri State's five-employee Multicultural Programs staff, led the event.  Garcia-Pusateri kicked off by asking attendees — all of them female — to announce the gender pronouns they prefer.

University Hosts 'Masculinity Confession Booth' Instructing Male Students to Repent.  The University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, is hosting a "masculinity confession booth" this week, in which male students are asked to confess sins that may have been inspired by the Western world's emphasis on "hypermasculinity."  Students at the University of Regina had the opportunity this week to confess their "hypermasculinity sins" at a confessional booth on campus.

Stunning Evidence that the Left Has Won its War on White Males.  There is a sickness in American society, fanned by the propaganda campaigns of the left, and it is killing people.  White males, in large numbers, are simply losing their will to live, and as a result, they are dying so prematurely and in such large numbers that a startling demographic gap has emerged.  It is not just the "opioid epidemic" that is killing off white working class males, it is a spiritual crisis, and Princeton economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton have the numbers to sustain this conclusion.

Alyssa Milano:  Up to Women to 'Remove' Trump from Office.  Actress Alyssa Milano says the task of "removing" President Donald Trump from office is up to the women of the United States.  "Trump has proven that he really can't take the heat in the White House kitchen.  But, he won't get out of it, either.  His ego won't let him.  Removing him will be up to us," the Who's the Boss actress wrote in an essay published in Marie Claire.  Milano says the "crushing, life-altering blow" of Trump's election spurred women to begin "organizing the resistance."

'Day Without Women' Was A Bit Of A Bust.  Apart from the misguidedness of trying to fight the wisdom of specialism and division of labor — a tool for increased satisfaction and economic gain — the fight against female smiling is just, well, sad.  Some of the women mentioned in the piece said they were specifically going to avoid "fake smiling" but the fact is that the world doesn't have too much smiling, but too little.  Feminism seems too often to take female traits that separate us from men and make us feel bad for them.  Yes, women tend to be better at nurturing the ties that bind and focusing on relationship health.  This is not something to be ashamed of, but something to cherish and celebrate.  Turning off smiles for a day also reinforces the stereotype that feminists are humorless scolds.

United Nations Pushes "HeforShe" Dolls for Boys.  There certainly have to be some intermediate steps between your son's birth and his ingestion of puberty-blocking drugs and subsequent "gender-reassignment surgery," and the United Nations is on the case.  It has joined forces with a new company to push dolls for boys so your child can get in touch with his "feminine side."  Writes PR Newswire, "HeForShe, UN Women's global solidarity movement for gender equality has teamed up with start-up company ... Boy Story to launch two special edition action dolls named Billy and Mason.  The action dolls challenges [sic] current prejudice surrounding boys playing with dolls, and promotes the notion that both boys and girls should have the same opportunity to bond with a special playmate, and that all children, regardless of their gender, need to learn nurturing, emotional intelligence, and empathy."

The Women's Strike Is A Self-Indulgent Day For Privileged Females.  This event, "A Day Without A Woman," is the latest in a string of public events and personal efforts organized by the Women's March folks to ostensibly raise awareness of the value of women. [...] This is a self-indulgent day for academics and professional women who are fortunate enough to hold positions requiring a relatively specific skill set and bear no real risk of harm from taking a day off.  It assumes the privilege of being able to pause one's work at will, and the privilege of being able to shuffle duties like child or elder care to someone else.  It categorically demands more risk of women in lower-income brackets, in jobs requiring low-specificity skill sets, and without a support system.

Female lawmakers support 'Day Without Women' — but won't skip their votes.  As many women go on strike around the world Wednesday, some female lawmakers in Congress are standing with them in support.  But they're not taking the day off.  "I certainly admire this as an opportunity to remind people how important women are to our society," said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-New Hampshire.  "But I will be here working."  "There's so much mischief going on in this Congress with the Republicans, we dare not turn our backs," quipped Rep. Lois Frankel, a Florida Democrat who chairs the women's caucus in the House.

The Leftist Roots of the 'Day Without a Woman'.  Across the country Wednesday — organizers hope — women will skip out on work to send a message to the world.  The idea is to show solidarity among women everywhere by demonstrating how poorly the world would work without female workers in the labor force or the home front.  Some of the same people who organized the Women's March on Washington the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration are promoting the general strike.

Organizers of Women's March Share Radical Past.  On Saturday [3/11/2017], hundreds of thousands of women will descend on Washington, D.C. for the anti-Trump "Women's March on Washington."  A closer look at the event and its organizers, however, reveals that the exercise should more accurately be called the "Radical Far-Leftists' March on Washington."  The march was recently mired in mild controversy when organizers discovered that a participating feminist organization, New Wave Feminists, was — gasp! — pro-life.  The group was quickly banished from participating in the event.  Interestingly, however, the Women's March has eagerly accepted the sponsorship of the Center for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and two of its local chapters.  Muslims — and CAIR is no exception — are strictly opposed to abortion.

City Installs 'Female' Traffic Signals for Equality, Gets Slammed for Stereotyping Women as Skirt-Wearing.  The city of Melbourne, Australia, has started installing dress-wearing, "female" traffic signals in the name of gender equality, and now they're being hit for perpetuating the sexist idea that women should wear dresses.  According to an article in the local news source ABC, the city started installing the new lights on Tuesday as part of a campaign to eliminate "unconscious bias."  In other words, the city was concerned that seeing only "male" traffic signals was causing its residents to subconsciously develop the idea that male people mattered more than female people.

Yale Student Group Wants to Force Fraternities to Admit Women, Gives Sororities Free Pass.  A Yale student group has waged a war on the university fraternities and will use Title IX to force them into admitting women — while letting female-only sororities off the hook.  Engender, a group led by students of Yale, claims it will lobby the university — citing Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender, and internal Yale policies against discrimination — to issue sanctions against male-only fraternities.  Will McGrew, a co-director of the organization, told Yale News that it's a "logical next step" to approach the Yale administration "because all of these organizations fall under the purview of Yale legally, either because they are registered as Yale organizations or it is literally all Yale students that constitute them."

The continuing liberal meltdown.  During the election and after the inauguration of President Trump we've been swamped with vile, sanctimonious lectures from the smug smart set, a privileged class of superrich celebrities, actors, television comedians and music performers.  We've had screeds from Meryl Streep, Madonna and Ashley Judd.  Robert De Niro assured us earlier in the month that he still wants to punch Mr. Trump in the face.  Lena Dunham continues to whine, Susan Sarandon and Cher remain bereft for the nation, and want us to know how horrible they feel.  Because it's their feelings that matter.  The most revealing aspect of the continuing liberal meltdown is how anti-woman the so-called feminist movement has really become.

'World's First Feminist Gov't' Wears Hijabs During Iran Visit.  The Swedish government, which calls itself the world's first "feminist government," has defended its decision to wear hijabs Saturday during a state visit to Iran.  Trade Minister Ann Linde got slammed by Swedish politicians for her decision to wear a hijab during meetings in Iran.  The government said it wanted to respect the customs and abide by the law.

Mrs. Clinton Is Not the Future.  Hillary Rodham Clinton has had an odd career for a feminist icon.  Her main occupation has consisted of being the long-suffering wife of a powerful man, infamous for treating subordinate women as disposable conveniences, who abused her ruthlessly and humiliated her publicly.

Feminist Darling Will Speak At Event With Convicted Palestinian Terrorist And Immigration Fraudster.  Linda Sarsour, the Palestinian-American activist and newest darling of the feminist movement, is scheduled to speak in April at an event with a Palestinian woman who was convicted of terrorism in a 1969 bombing in Israel.  Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York, will appear alongside Rasmea Odeh at an event in Chicago hosted by the Jewish Voice for Peace, a left-wing group that focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  Sarsour was one of the organizers of last month's Women's March, and Odeh recently signed on as an organizer for a worldwide women's strike next month.

How Abortion Activists Hijacked The Women's Movement.  [Scroll down]  Basically, Betty [Friedan] claimed to be speaking for every working woman in America when, in fact, at least as far as the abortion vote was concerned, she was speaking only for herself and 57 people in the Chinese Room.  And that's how propaganda works, my friends.

The Anti-Women March on Washington.  This was not a women's march with any kind of logic behind it.  It was an anti-women march, and women participated because they fell for a steaming-hot pile of platitudes.  These useful idiots were duped by Islamist Linda Sarsour, who is determined to normalize her extremist culture.  It was one of the stupidest marches in the history of modern politics, and it says a lot about where we are as a country.  In short, we are a bunch of spoiled ingrates who are so desperate to complain, we will demand rights we already have.

Yarn shop won't sell to 'women's movement' supporters.  A knitting shop in Tennessee is asking those who want yarn for any project relating to the recent "women's movement" to go elsewhere.  In a Facebook post Tuesday, The Joy of Knitting asks that "if you want yarn for any project for the women's movement that you please shop for yarn elsewhere," and said the "vulgarity, vile and evilness of this movement is absolutely despicable."

The Pointless Paranoia of the Women's Marches.  I am no stranger to protesting, having marched so often in the sixties and seventies that I sometimes felt as if I were chanting "Hey, hey, LBJ" in my sleep.  But I have come to think over the years that too much demonstrating can get to be a bad habit, like smoking.  Now I'm not talking here about the Gloria Steinems and Michael Moores, for whom protest is so much a way of life they couldn't exist without it.  Or the Madonnas who, like other entertainment stalwarts, have business reasons for constantly reminding us they are still have their "edge" even as they age, liberally dropping the f-bomb and speculating about bombing the White House in the process.

Here's The Question No Liberal Protester Can Answer.  There have now been a ton of reports that the hundreds of thousands of women sauntering around in Washington Saturday made a big scene and a lot of noise that caught the attention of the world.  But for many women, it's more of a show without any real meaning.  Asked about the following day's big event at the inauguration, a number of women who supported Trump weren't sure what all the agitation was about.  Susan Clarke, 50, who came to the capital from Charlotte, North Carolina gave this remark:  "I think it's great, do your thing, but I just don't know what they're doing it for.  They're talking about rights, women's rights, but what rights are being taken away from any women?  I don't understand what the point is."

Women's March — See What a Massive, Hillary-Shaped Bullet America Just Dodged?  Has anyone actually worked out yet what that Women's March over the weekend was all about?  Or is it another of those things we're just supposed to know — and the very fact we don't know shows precisely how insensitive and unobservant we are?

The DC Women's Tantrum.  The day after Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the forty-fifth President of the United States, radical liberal feminazis took to the streets of Washington D.C. and put on a disgusting display of hedonism and hate.  What was billed as the "Women's March on Washington" quickly devolved into what any sound-minded political observer knew it would, and the worst of the American left was on unhinged display for all the world to see.

Three Mainstream Media Lies on Trump's First Day.  Lie #3: The anti-Trump protests in Washington, D.C. were important.  The protests were nothing more than the venting of outrage at Trump's election.  For all the talk of "women's rights," there was nothing particular to point to that Trump had done about anything relating to women.  The demonstration was large, but also disorganized, as well as vulgar, and protesters left heaps of trash over the various routes they took, including protest signs abandoned at Union Station as they left the capital.

Great March You Had There, Liberals — You Alienated Millions of Regular Americans.  Just as Barack Obama drove conservatives crazy, Donald Trump seems to be pushing his adversaries to the brink of insanity.  During the celebration of the peaceful transfer of power this weekend, we were treated to some crude and irresponsible comments from liberal celebrities: [...]

Obscenity and violent rhetoric-laced 'women's march' was a bleeping disaster for the left.  We conservatives have a secret weapon on our political battles with the left:  their own hatred for us and for the country we love.  The inauguration of Donald Trump was a trigger for the left to let their inner essence become visible, with no need for any "Russian hacking."  And best of all, the MSM, in particular CNN and MSNBC, gave huge amounts of coverage to the primal scream day, including live coverage of rants containing liberal amounts of obscenity form the likes of Madonna and Ashley Judd.

Nationwide shortage of pink yarn handicaps Women's March.  The crowd was surprisingly large. [...] Some speakers described the president as being either a reincarnation of Hitler or a dangerously deluded psychiatric case.  Many marchers had signs expressing support for various left-wing sacred cows — for example; illegal immigrants, Muslims, Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, state schools, and socialized medicine.  Unusual for the left, there were lots of people denouncing Russia and Vladimir Putin, obviously because Trump said something slightly positive about that country and its leader.

The Anti-Semite Who Organized The 'Women's March On Washington'.  A leading organizer of the Women's March was the Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.  This group was founded shortly after 9/11 — not to condemn the attacks, of course, but rather, to lament "the heightened sense of fear and the acts of blatant discrimination aimed at [the Muslim] community" in the racist wasteland known as America.  On the premise that all government efforts to forestall additional terrorism constituted Nazi-like fascism, Sarsour and her organization played a central role in pressuring the New York Police Department to terminate its secret surveillance of the many Muslim groups and mosques suspected of promoting jihadism.

The Women's March: Why Trump Won.  Ugly women holding up ugly signs expressing ugly sentiments — the [Women's March] to protest Donald Trump's presidency is perhaps the clearest explanation of why Donald Trump is president.  The all-out feminist crusade mounted on behalf of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign reminded millions of Americans of why they hate feminism.  Yet it is clear today that Democrats have learned nothing from their defeat.

They Came.  They Marched.  They Left A Mess.  Lots of women (and some men) demonstrated today in Washington D.C. to express their anger that their candidate didn't win the election.  They carried even more of the usual vulgar signs, expressed amazing ignorance of both history and politics, and ranted with the usual Leftist vocabulary that is impressive only in its lack of any originality whatsoever.  Let's see, Nazi, Sexist, Racist, Hate, Hitler, Misogynist, seems to cover the usual.  "Stay Out of My Uterus" in slight variations was popular.  They were advocating reproductive rights for women, which, oddly, does not include the right to produce children, but only to get rid of unwanted pregnancies.  Women who actually do celebrate their reproductive rights by having three or more children are apt to get all sorts of sneering comments.

Making Moonbattery Great Again.  Most of America knows the organizers of the various "Women's Marches" today did not construct women's events, they constructed events for women who are anti-Trump and voted for Hillary Clinton, ie. liberal women.  After all, billionaire George Soro's financing is behind more than 50 groups who organized the various events.

Women's March Organizer Recently Met Ex-Hamas Operative has Family Ties To Terror Group.  Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday's Women's March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.  Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House "Champion of Change," was speaking at last month's 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.  While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group.

Soros's Women's March of Hate.  [W]hat happened Saturday [1/21/2017] at the "Women's March" was not spontaneous.  No mass rallies are, especially on the Left.  This so-called "protest", like the violent attacks orchestrated by the DisruptJ20 coalition on pro-Trump events such as Friday's "DeploraBall" at the National Press Club, was not an organically generated demonstration.  The usual culprits were involved behind the scenes using the same fascistic tactics they used to shut down the massive Trump campaign rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago in March last year.  The groups that organized the Women's March on Washington on Saturday were underwritten by radical currency speculator George Soros, the same man who says Communist China's system of government is superior to our own and that the United States is the number one obstacle to world peace.

Billionaire George Soros has ties to more than 50 'partners' of the Women's March on Washington.  In the pre-dawn darkness of today's presidential inauguration day, I faced a choice, as a lifelong liberal feminist who voted for Donald Trump for president:  lace up my pink Nike sneakers to step forward and take the DC Metro into the nation's capital for the inauguration of America's new president, or wait and go tomorrow to the after-party, dubbed the "Women's March on Washington"?  The Guardian has touted the "Women's March on Washington" as a "spontaneous" action for women's rights.  Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the "huge, spontaneous groundswell" behind the march.  On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as "a grassroots effort" with "independent" organizers.

War of Words.  Obituaries used to employ the euphemism "longtime companion"; now they regularly say "partner." [...] As I've mentioned in these pages before, I grew up in one of the most politically correct places in America, Ann Arbor, Mich. — and at a very, very politically correct time.  This was a time when people were (seriously) saying "person-hole cover," instead of "manhole cover."  We got to replacing "man" with "person" automatically.

Pro-Lifers Denied Access To Women's March.  It looks like brain-sick liberals are preparing a "Women's March" after the inauguration in protest to Donald Trump.  The women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault made it crystal clear what they thought about such an attempt.  Apparently, the "tolerant" protesters aren't permitting anyone who dissents from 'their' idea of equality to attend the march.

Anti-Trump Women's March Calls For Legalizing Prostitution.  Like most left-wing fronts that employ identity politics, the anti-Trump Women's March on Washington is actually a collection of general left-wing agenda items from Global Warming to Black Lives Matter.  The latter though interacts perversely with the former.  After paragraph 3 focuses on rape, 4 moves to the usual BLM anti-police rant.  While 5 escalates to supporting "restorative justice and alternatives to incarceration."  Not to mention "disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline that prioritizes incarceration over education by systematically funneling our children... into the justice system."  The Women's March can oppose rape or it can support restorative justice, which is a euphemism for freeing criminals while convincing their victims to meet with them and forgive them.  It's one of the twisted pro-crime ideas that the left is compulsively pushing.

Lazy Fat Women Screech About Beauty Standards While Rejecting Men For Being Short.  Women being fat and men being short are the biggest laments of the dating scene today, and, while they are falsely rated as equivalent (a man cannot become taller, but a woman can certainly lose weight), there is an additional misdirection at play here.  Women hold the belief that everything about their physical appearance is tied up in one quality:  that of beauty, and it is both the only thing men want and the thing she cannot change about herself.  Today we will talk on how beauty is not attractiveness, that which also is what men actually want in a woman.

Let's Just Be Blunt Here:  If You See "Rev" Before a Woman's Name, Go the Other Way.  There are many reasons the Bible is pretty clear that women should not be leaders in the church.  In fact, if you look at the churches where women have joined the leadership you find churches that are shrinking in denominations headed towards collapse.  Both Christian and Episcopalian church leaderships that have gone left have almost always done so after scrapping this basic rule in the name of inclusivity.

Whoopi Goldberg:  Celebrating Christmas And Getting An Abortion Is The Same Thing.  "The View" host was talking about the right to display Nativity scenes on Tuesday [12/13/2016] when she brought up abortion out of nowhere.

How to Blast Away the Left's Attacks on Manliness.  The liberal/progressive belief is that manly declarations should be censored, banned, and expunged from our minds for being insulting to women and, perhaps, also to those effeminized men among us.  This politically correct censorship is at the basis of why manliness is in crisis.  If being "manly" is akin to sexism and worse, men should then be something else, but the cabal of Hollywood, academia, and the mainstream media haven't given men anything else to be.  They are simply told not to be men.  They are guilty from birth and so should just shut up.

Another Smackdown of the Smug Elite.  Demagogues like Hillary Clinton can point to the fact that women as a group do not receive as much income as men as a group.  But, factual studies over the past 40 years have shown repeatedly that, when you compare women who work as many hours a year as men, and as many continuous years in the same occupations as men, the income differences shrink to the vanishing point, and sometimes even reverse.  But how many politicians or media people care about facts, when the facts go against their preconceptions?

Why do liberals glorify JFK's promiscuity?  [Scroll down]  This kind of glorification of Kennedy continues to make me laugh, because it's not just magazine authors and professors who do it.  Democrats continue to hold him (and Bill Clinton) up as paragons of their party while claiming Republicans are the anti-women party.  Now we have an entire book telling men that being like Kennedy is the cool thing to do.

You're Never Gonna Get the Smell Out.  If America's unmarried women are so intent on having a female president, they should want a woman who doesn't need to ride her husband's coattails.  Had Hillary not been First Lady, would New York have considered a carpetbagger to be their U.S. senator?  And if she hadn't been the senator from New York, how likely would the rest of her political career have been?  If you single gals really believe "you've come a long way, baby," then support a woman who's achieved things on her own, like Condi Rice.

Still Think Hillary Clinton Is a Role Model for Your Daughter?  In light of how much more we now know about Clinton's activities while secretary of state, and given the FBI's renewal of its investigation of her private e-mail server as well as the revelation, denied months ago by Clinton, that the FBI is also investigating her family-run charities, the notion of Clinton as a role model is a topic worth revisiting.  Good and decent men and women who are Democrats ought to stop thinking this way, for America's sake and for their daughters' sake.  Only those in willful denial can continue to reject the overwhelming evidence that Mrs. Clinton is essentially a crook, a person prone to chronic lying, and, worst of all, one who betrayed America's best interests for petty personal gain.

Hillary Clinton is a Disaster Without Accomplishment.  In an interview for The Spectator.com with Emily Smith, Camille Paglia blows up any idea that Hillary Clinton is good for feminism, women in general or America.  It is so refreshing to read the truth about Hillary spoken by a woman who is her peer.  Both women were born in 1947.  Paglia does not recite the feminist company line.

Get Your Story Straight, Hillary!  Are Women Strong or Are They Victims?  Americans are still recovering from the whiplash of Hillary Clinton's rhetoric concerning women during the final presidential debate Wednesday evening [10/19/2016].  Clinton's anti-women, anti-family politics were on full display during the final pre-election showdown, masquerading before millions of viewers as "women's empowerment" and "feminism."  But in the end, instead of brandishing her womanly strength, the Democratic nominee abandoned her campaign slogan, "Stronger Together," and whipped out her woman card.  Her message was clear:  Women need to stand up to men like Donald Trump and show them that they won't be pushed around.  But as with all things "progressive," over the course of the evening, Clinton laid out her case for female victimhood instead.  Her long list of grievances included the fact that states are restricting women's "right" to an abortion by defunding Planned Parenthood, and the fact that the so-called wage gap is a roadblock in the fight for women's equality.

Anti-Trump Feminism's Fever Pitch.  Enjoying maximum power over politics and culture, the czarinas of feminism have informed Americans headed for Hillary's animal farm that "not all pigs are equal."  Hence, Hillary, with grimly comic gall, can say that a man like Trump doesn't "belong in the White House" while riding back to it on the coattails of a credibly accused rapist.

Trumped-Up Outrage.  The sudden onset of Victorian vapors among the liberal intelligentsia and political class at the revelation of Trump's locker-room talk is part and parcel of the Left's hypocrisy when it comes to feminism and sexual liberation. [...] But the feminists can't have it both ways:  declaring that women should be equal to men in all things and then still demand a chivalric deference to female's delicate sensibilities.  Either women are the same as men or they're not.  It is particularly galling to see the selective resurrection of Victorian values from the same crowd that has been pushing transgender locker rooms on the world, in an effort to destroy the last shred of girls' innate sexual modesty.

A Requiem for Feminism.  It all seemed so exciting during the heady days of the 1960s and 70s as radical feminists jumped on the civil rights bandwagon, demanding equality with men.  Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, Bella Abzug and others led the push for women's equality, including the right to abortion on demand.  Now Steinem is 80 and wearing T-shirts that proclaim "I had an abortion."  Steinem's T-shirt headlines what feminism considers its crowning achievement.  Abortion on demand at any stage of gestation is radical feminism's gold standard.  It is upheld as an absolute right by the Democratic Party and its candidate for president, Hillary Clinton.  But abortion on demand and the aggressive transgender movement are proving to be the Achilles heel of feminism.

Feminists Fight for Abortion — Not for Women.  There are millions of students who are either pregnant or are raising children, at a whopping 26% of all undergraduate students, yet they frequently are discriminated against, and the issues that they face are overlooked.  Today's so-called feminists should be fighting for these women.  Instead, they just encourage women to have abortions.

Cosmo Objects To Maternity Leave For Women Because Men Don't Get ItCosmopolitan is rabidly pro-abortion, which might be why they have zero staff who understand what maternity leave is.  The interviewer's main objection to Trump's maternity leave proposal is that it focuses on women, who give birth.

Princeton scrubs 'men' from campus.  As first reported Thursday [8/18/2016] by the conservative campus news outfit The College Fix, Princeton's Human Resources and Office of Communications issued a four-page memo filled with examples of gender-neutral terminology that must now be used in official school documents, such as:
  •   The word "actress" should be replaced by "actor."
  •   A "cameraman" must now be called a "camera operator."
  •   There will be no more references to a "cleaning lady," but instead an "office cleaner."
  •   New students are no longer "freshmen" but rather "first-year students."
  •   A "mailman" no longer delivers letters or packages, because that's the work now of a "mail carrier," "letter carrier" or "postal worker."
  •   Nothing is to ever be done for the betterment of "mankind" but instead for "humanity," "human kind" or simply "people."

Feminist Magazine:  Bill Clinton Isn't Necessarily A Bad Guy If He Raped Juanita Broaddrick.  An online feminist magazine recently featured an article that excused former President Bill Clinton's alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick.  A Wonkette article titled "Let's Talk About Juanita Broaddrick" claimed that even if Clinton had raped Broaddrick in 1978 — he was running for Arkansas governor at the time — it does not necessarily mean he's "an evil man."  "To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick; that it doesn't make him an evil man, or irredeemable (I'm Catholic; we're all forgiven, if we're sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize).  It doesn't even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that," the article claimed.

Feminist Columnist:  Reporting on Bill Clinton's Rape is Sexist.  This is how little professional feminism has to do with helping women.

Obama the feminist.  Feminism is an ideology based on fiction.  Women and men are not the same.  While they may be equal under the law, they are not equal in everything else.

Hillary Clinton Is A Big Fat Hypocrite On Women's Rights.  As a woman, I have a high opinion of women.  So high, in fact, that I don't even think becoming president is the greatest thing a woman can do.  We're capable of a lot more; we're capable of shocking, wonderful things — things I would even call miraculous, in the truest sense.  No man can bring a new human life into the world like a woman can!  That's why I was so disgusted when Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards got up on that platform and had the nerve to talk about women at the Democratic National Convention.  This woman, along with Hillary Clinton herself, has been one of the prime instigators of a practice that is singularly degrading to women.  I can't believe the Dems actually did that.  They actually let Richards get up there and represent their party after the scandalous discovery last year that Planned Parenthood sells dead baby parts.  Do they think we've already forgotten that was a thing?

The Dumbest Idea.  A recent article in the New York Times saw as a problem the fact that females are greatly under-represented among the highest rated chess players.  Innumerable articles, TV stories and political outcries have been based on an "under-representation" of women in Silicon Valley, seen as a problem that needs to be solved.  Are there girls out there dying to play chess, who find the doors slammed shut in their faces?  Are there women with Ph.D.s in computer science from M.I.T. and Cal Tech who get turned away when they apply for jobs in Silicon Valley?  Are girls and boys not allowed to have different interests?

If a Man Doesn't Want to be a Father, He's a Deadbeat; A Woman is Just Pro-Choice.  [Scroll down]  Courts can require a father to pay child support based not just on what he earns, but on what courts believe he has the ability to earn.  Child support obligations remain even if a father goes to prison, or declares bankruptcy.  Even if he wants to terminate his parental rights (and therefore his parental responsibilities), the courts usually won't allow it unless there is another adult prepared to adopt the child and take over that responsibility.  And there are many methods for enforcing child support.  A man's tax refunds can be intercepted, his property seized, business or occupational license suspended, and in some states his driver's license can be revoked.  If he still fails to make payment, he can be held in contempt and given jail time.

Hillary, the blushing bride, stalks history on her husband's coattails.  All across America, there are millions and millions of strong and successful women in every occupation imaginable.  Many have overcome insurmountable odds to become the best at what they do.  And not one of these strong, successful women got to where she is by riding her husband's coattails.  There is nothing feminist whatsoever about Hillary Clinton's ascent in politics.  Rather, Hillary Clinton is the most anti-feminist candidate in decades.  Which is fine, really, if that's what you want to run on.  But just don't claim to be carrying the torch for successful women when you cannot hold a candle to the millions and millions of strong and successful women in this country who made it the hard way:  by earning it.

The Deliberate Ugliness of Feminism.  Many have noticed this "warning sign" phenomenon in the characteristic costumes of Third Wave feminists of the "Social Justice Warrior" (SJW) variety — weirdly colored hairstyles, facial piercings, tattoos, etc.  Quite often, we find this aposematic appearance accompanied by obesity (because "fat feminism" is an actual movement) and LGBT sexuality, so that a clichéd type can be discerned in the vicinity of "social justice" activism.  Strange appearance is a way for disgruntled misfits to turn their maladjusted anti-social attitudes into a visible display, so everybody who sees them knows how much they hate Mommy and Daddy.

What the restroom war is really about.  So why have liberals chosen to force the issue of "transgender" rights down our throats and trigger another (and possibly) losing fight over loo access?  The answer is not only that liberals are drawn to the issue like salmon to their home stream, but that they're afraid to leave it be.  But not for the reason you think.  Indeed, they couldn't care less about the hurt feelings of the sexually confused.  What they're targeting is the mindset of those men who aren't at all confused.  After all, you have to remember that their goal has always been a state of being that doesn't admit any identity for oneself other than that provided by the government.

Sorry, Liberals, But Gender Is Not a "Social Construct".  One of the most harmful and also false ideas that liberals have introduced to American culture is the idea that gender is nothing more than a "social construct."  Put another way, there's no real difference between men and women; we just think there are differences because we accept illogical cultural norms that have been passed down through the years.  This is a "the moon is made out of green cheese" grade dumb concept; yet and still this idea undergirds liberal feminism.  If a man can do it, then a woman can do it just as well, even if we're talking about the military, firemen or being a cop.  It's the core concept that allows liberals to try to present transgenderism as a civil rights issue instead of a mental health issue.  Undoubtedly, it's also part of the reason you see so many sad, lost, nearly androgynous young men these days.  If being a man doesn't mean anything, why go through the work of taking on masculine traits?

The Feminization of American Males.  Not only are the government schools harmful to a child's brain, they are infinitely more harmful to boys with their jihad against masculinity in all of its manifestations.  Historically, all political ecologies demand obedience, which they win through warfare, violent compliance regimes and gender-norming to estrogen nation.  As Iceland has demonstrated, there is terrific danger to governments that don't savage the very notion of masculinity.  Job one in the American education system beside instupidation and surgical removal of critical thinking faculties is the absolute supremacy of the feminine mindset and concomitant pursuit of security above all else and absolute risk aversion and mitigation.  This is not a jeremiad against the fairer sex but a simple affirmation that both happen to be genetically and psychologically wired differently for very good reasons when combined in a cooperative union.

School's father-daughter dance canceled after some complaints it wasn't inclusive.  Brockman Elementary School in Columbia chose to scrap the May 13 dance in response to complaints about its inclusiveness from fewer than 10 parents, who apparently ignored a flyer for the dance that stated that all were invited, WIS-TV reports.  "There were a few parents that did not think the father-daughter dance was inclusive, when actually at all times it was never an event that was exclusive to only fathers and daughters," Karen York, a spokeswoman the Richland One school district which includes Brockman.  "Mothers and anyone else who wanted to show up at the dance were certainly welcome to attend."

Real War on Women:  Enslaving Them to Government.  House lawmakers took a large step toward putting female soldiers on the front lines on Wednesday [4/27/2016], approving legislation requiring women to register for the draft.  The left wants to erase the distinctions between men and women in their Marxist war on the culture and the Republicans appear to be striking out for equal rights.  Of course, feminists did ask for this.  They want full equality of the sexes.

Childless Author Thinks Non-Moms Should Get Maternity Leave Too.  Childless author Meghann Foye has come under fire.  The reason:  She believes that maternity leave is, in her words, a "time and space for self-reflection."  The magazine editor — whose new novel, Meternity is about a woman who fakes her pregnancy — explained how the book came about in a controversial essay for the New York Post. [...] That's when the 38-year-old dreamed up the term "Meternity," which she describes as "a sabbatical-like break that allows women and, to a lesser degree, men to shift their focus to the part of their lives that doesn't revolve around their jobs."

The Editor says...
In other words, this childless woman wants paid time off from work — presumably several days or weeks at a time — for no legitimate reason at all, other than to attend to her personal business or indulge in her own abject laziness.  And when her employer refuses, no doubt she will make a big fuss about the unfairness of it all.

Whether they're qualified or not...
Hillary: My Cabinet Will Be 50% Women.  Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised that her Cabinet would be 50% women if she is elected president during a town hall on MSNBC on Monday [4/25/2016].

The Queering of Feminism and the Silencing of Heterosexual Masculinity.  According to feminist theory, male sexuality is inherently oppressive to women, and there is no reason why women should attempt to understand or sympathize with men.  Feminists condemn any expectation that women naturally desire heterosexual relationships, and therefore might wish to make themselves appealing to males.

Hillary's henchwomen have a dirty secret.  When Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem tried to shame and bully young women into supporting Hillary Clinton, they inadvertently revealed a dirty secret of the left's fixation on gender, race and ethnicity.  They demonstrated that hiding behind the gauzy appeals to make history is a willingness to use brass knuckles to achieve conformity.  In their warped vision, biology trumps individuality, and those who don't agree are traitors to their gender.  That's not just unappealing, it's also un-American.

Women Don't Need To Get Drafted To Be Equal With Men.  [Scroll down]  Who told you that you weren't equal?  Was it the advocates of legalized abortion, who insist that women are not equal to men until they are equally unaccountable for an unplanned pregnancy?  Was it those voices who said that, because some men despise fatherhood and treat pregnant women like lepers, women aren't free until they are equally able to treat motherhood as slavery and pregnancy as a disease? [...] Was it the same group that said pornography empowers women and that women won't be equal to men until they too can be heralded as heroes by the moral adolescents of their own sex for engaging in on-camera sex acts?

Feminist Shtick.  No serious person can believe the whining voices telling us that women are oppressed by men. [...] Even sillier (except that too many naïve and angry women buy feminism as true) is the idea that women are worse off economically than men.  Women have most of the wealth, even if they do not earn most of the wealth.  Mass Mutual Financial Group reported in 2007 that women over 50 own seventy-five percent of the nation's wealth.  Just as importantly, an estimated 85% of consumer purchasing decisions are made by women.

Hillary's bullies trying to make election all about gender.  When Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem tried to shame and bully young women into supporting Hillary Clinton, they inadvertently revealed a dirty secret of the left's fixation on gender, race and ethnicity.  They demonstrated that hiding behind the gauzy appeals to make history is a willingness to use brass knuckles to achieve conformity.  In their warped vision, biology trumps individuality, and those who don't agree are traitors to their gender.

Maher to Gloria Steinem: Why Isn't Anti-Woman Sharia Law a Bigger Feminist Issue?  Bill Maher spoke with iconic feminist Gloria Steinem tonight [2/5/2016] about a cause he thinks more feminists should care about:  radical Islamic law.  He brought up how horribly women are treated in the Muslim world and asked why it isn't a bigger feminist issue.  Steinem argued that it actually is, pointing to feminists in Muslim nations attempting to push reforms.  She said that "all monotheism is a problem," but Maher jumped in to say that Islamic nations are particularly horrible to women and bad on women's rights.

Behold: The Hillary Rodham Clinton children's book.  The children's book "Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead" by Michelle Markel and illustrated by LeUyen Pham, is dedicated to implanting the proper Hillary attitudes in the minds of the next generation.  Aimed at ages 4 to 8, is meant to instill in girls a thrilling sense of gender pride, even if the book (like Hillary's campaign) has a difficult time identifying anything she has actually accomplished, other than giving speeches and being in the proximity of famous men.

The Corrosion of Conformity on Campus.  In the mid-1990s, Joanna Williams embarked on an English degree "as a very naive 19-year-old" who liked reading.  By the end of the first year, she'd decided that she hated the course.  It turned out to be about "feminism, historicism, postmodernism, Marxism, structuralism and poststructuralism".  Williams and her peers were asked, for example, "to interpret Jane Eyre from a feminist perspective.  'Oh look, he's standing by the chimney, that's a phallic symbol!'  It was very much on that rigid level:  every man is bad, dominating, representative of the patriarchy; every long, tall object is a phallic symbol.  We were pushed into thinking about these works in a particular way."  Not only did this kind of ideological analysis seem all too easy, it also left her "feeling kind of cheap".

Why Feminism Failed Cologne's Women.  Big Feminism, fresh from fighting pitched battles against swimsuit posters in European subways and other phantoms of "rape culture", failed the women who were attacked by violent Muslim migrant mobs in Cologne, Berlin and Hamburg who were the products of an actual rape culture dating back to Mohammed's injunction to his men that Muslim women must wear burqas to avoid being "molested" while non-Muslim women captured in the House of War could be raped by Muslim Jihadis at will. [...] Feminism is only another of the many manipulative masks that the left wears.  Its acolytes cannot see rape as a personal crime, only as an ideological one.  To the left, rape, like racism, is a form of institutional oppression practiced by the stronger white male against everyone else.

German Feminists Claim "Muslim Rape Gang Story" Just A Cover For Racism.  In a truly bizarre story a group of German feminists have decided that the stories circulating around the interwebs about Muslim rape gangs attacking large numbers of German women in cities like Cologne, Germany on New Years eve are simply a cover for racism. [...] As if the feminists in this country weren't insane enough — especially on this topic-the Germans seem to have upped the ante considerably on this one on the other side of the pond.  You see, you cannot blame the poor refugees.  No, not at all.  After all, they are peaceable types seeking shelter for their wives (who seem to have stayed home) and their children, who may be abandoned by their families depending on their own health challenges.  Yeah, I wasn't buying that either.  So these insane women blame their German male counterparts — oh and the "rape culture" they perpetuate — for the roving bands of rapists that molested German women on New Years eve.

Is move by Defense Department 'to provide a level, gender-neutral playing field' realistic?  [Scroll down]  Then there's hand-to-hand combat training, which comes near the end of the Army's basic training.  Recruits spend a few hours facing off against each other in pugil stick bouts.  Pugil sticks are padded training weapons used since World War II by each branch of the military to train service members for hand-to-hand rifle and bayonet combat.  The object of the training is to subdue your opponent.  Women are at a severe disadvantage because upper-body strength really counts.  Given the timidity and character of today's military leaders, I predict several possibilities:  Training with pugil sticks will be banned, or servicewomen will train only against other servicewomen, or, if the training is integrated, servicemen will be court-martialed if they knock out or knock down a servicewoman.  Even if our military leaders fudge this aspect of training, what happens in actual combat when hand-to-hand skills are called upon?

20 Ways To Tell If You Might Be A Liberal.  You might be a liberal if... [#5] You believe there's a "Republican War on Women;" yet you are okay with aborting baby girls for any reason, think any man who says he identifies as a woman should be able to use the women's bathroom and you want to put Bill Clinton back in the White House.

Blakely teacher restricts Lego-play to her girl students in the pursuit of gender equity.  In Karen Keller's kindergarten classroom, boys can't play with Legos.  They can have their pick of Tinkertoys and marble tracks, but the colorful bricks are "girls only." [...] Although her approach might anger some parents, Keller is sticking to her guns:  It's all part of a plan to get girls building during "free choice," the 40 minutes of unstructured play time embedded at the end of every school day.

Feminist Teacher's Lesson Plan: Discriminate against Boys.  [Scroll down]  And, of course, innate sex differences evident since time immemorial cannot be allowed, so Keller's leftist sense of equality compelled her to action.  She discriminated so the girls could use the blocks "unencumbered."  Now, this story quickly went viral, and Keller and the school have since backtracked.  It was all a misunderstanding, you see. [...] If Keller is really so concerned about girls being discouraged by the boys' presence (a pity science hasn't yet weeded those creatures out of the species), there's a simple solution:  create separate boys' and girls' Lego areas.  But this wasn't good enough for her; she had to stick it to the boys for being boys.

Feminization of America Is Bad for the World.  Very little academic research on sex differences is likely to be as accurate as research conducted by businesses and advertising agencies.  The reason is simple:  Businesses and advertising agencies have no social or political agenda; their agenda is profit.  Their assessments must be accurate or they lose money; and those providing wrong assessments are fired.  Academics, on the other hand, have nothing on the line.  When they publish studies that purport to show that boys and girls want the same types of toys, they lose nothing for asserting something so patently false.  In business there is a very big price paid for believing what is untrue.  Among academics, there is no price — certainly not their reputations, because other academics want to believe the same nonsense.

Gloria Steinem Blames Rush Limbaugh for Ruining [the] Word Feminism.  During an appearance on Friday's CBS This Morning to promote her latest book, far-left feminist Gloria Steinem eagerly blamed Rush Limbaugh for making the word feminism a "bad word" because he "talks about feminazis everyday."  Co-host Norah O'Donnell teed up Steinem to bash Limbaugh by noting the Meryl Streep "doesn't consider herself a feminist.  She says she considers herself a humanist.

Feminism Has Officially Jumped The Shark.  As women are able to boast more education and more opportunities than men in contemporary America, the concerns of feminism are no longer about rectifying injustices or addressing inequalities.  Instead, modern feminism is about turning the petty complaints of the nation's most privileged caste into injustices.  The only conclusion to draw from this development is that feminism has truly jumped the shark.  Feminism may have had to deal with genuine injustices in the past, but it is now only an enforcement mechanism for the will of deluded, power-hungry ladies.

Liberal Columnist: All Men Should Be Put In Camps & Heterosexuality Should Be Eradicated.  Modern feminism is a far cry from the feminism that once advocated for equality.  Today's feminism is about retribution and supremacy, not equality.  One leading feminist has stopped the charade entirely and stopped advocating for equality and has been brutally honest; she feels heterosexual men should be rounded-up into camps.

Tech Jobs and Female Privilege.  Overall, women received 18 percent of Computer and Information Sciences undergraduate degrees in 2013, yet were 26% of the computing workforce in 2014.  Women make up 30% of the workforce at tech giant Apple; at Intel, they represent about 24%; 22% of leaderships positions at Google are held by women.  Compared to their rates of participation in STEM majors in college, women also receive disproportionately higher job offers in IT, engineering and physics. [...] Intel is upping the ante, adding additional incentives including referral bonuses that are double for women candidates than male.  25% of Intel's workforce is female; moreover, 35% of its recent new hires were women, both well above the rates at which they are awarded computer-related degrees.  This affirmative action decays into reverse discrimination when they introduced a quota system to draw 40% of recruits in 2015 from underrepresented groups.

Why Progressives Are Wrong to Revere Margaret Sanger.  Margaret Sanger is a saint in the feminist church.  She is a charter member of the progressive hall of fame.  Liberals revere this woman who preached "race improvement" and denounced what she called "human weeds".  Hillary Clinton glows that she is "in awe of" Sanger.  She said so in 2009 upon receiving Planned Parenthood's "highest honor" that year:  its coveted Margaret Sanger Award.  Likewise effusive was Nancy Pelosi when she proudly accepted the award in 2014.  Speaking to Planned Parenthood a year earlier, President Barack Obama, hailed the organization founded by this racial eugenicist committed to creating a "race of thoroughbreds" and purging America's "race of degenerates."

Hillary's Qualifications.  How did it happen that, in this the land of Washington, Jefferson, Madison et al, someone so fundamentally dishonest and so unbelievably incompetent should not only aspire to be its president, but should actually be taken seriously in this aspiration by one of the country's two major parties?  I cannot recall any presidential contender from either party over the past 60 years as fundamentally undeserving of such a distinction as Hillary Clinton.  So let's just look at the only two things that she is relying on to stake her claim — her gender and her marriage (i.e. her husband).  Aside from the fact that neither should have any bearing on her claim to high office (or, for that matter, any office) in point of fact, neither should have any bearing on her case for both claims are a fraud, i.e. Hillary is neither feminine nor a feminist.

Why women still need husbands.  Research shows that what women want more than anything else is not to work full-time and year-round but to live balanced lives.  How will they do it?  That's the number-one conversation among women today.  'Round and 'round we go, asking how women can gain more control over their lives.  How can they spend more time with their children?  How can they make time for exercise or even a social life?  How can they keep their houses in order and still have time to cook?  The answer is obvious.  Lean on your husband.

The Hidden Message of Same-Sex Marriage.  The road to gay marriage began with feminism.  Feminists argued that there were no important differences between the sexes.  Thus, mothering and fathering were interchangeable.  The word "parent" became a verb.  If mothers and fathers bring nothing unique or complementary to their roles, then it logically follows that two mothers or two fathers should be just as good.  Talk of three or more parents misses the mark.  The relevant number is one.  If fathers are no different from mothers, then single women needn't pause before embarking on "parenthood" solo — and they aren't.  Along with feminism, the past few decades have featured a widespread retreat from the idea of family duty. [...] Marriage today is treated as optional by many parents, just one of many available paths.  As Alito noted in his dissent, fully 40 percent of American births are now to unmarried women.  Additionally, more than half of all children will spend some part of their childhoods in a non-nuclear family.

5 feminist myths that will not die.  Much of what we hear about the plight of American women is false.  Some faux facts have been repeated so often they are almost beyond the reach of critical analysis.  Though they are baseless, these canards have become the foundation of Congressional debates, the inspiration for new legislation and the focus of college programs.  Here are five of the most popular myths that should be rejected by all who are genuinely committed to improving the circumstances of women: [...]

When the Insane Are Normal, the Normal Are Insane.  The wave of media cheerleading for Bruce Jenner's splashy debut as Caitlyn Jenner, his new putatively female identity, is one of those moments that has a lot of us of looking around and wondering if the whole world has gone insane.  Obviously, Bruce Jenner is not a woman.  But the fact that so many people want us to think this is true, and that they appear to want to believe it themselves, is ominous. [...] Notice the way people are attacked for questioning any aspect of this.  I have already noted how the actress Alice Eve was forced to recant when she didn't get on the Jenner bandwagon. [...] This is going to be a great intramural battle:  feminists who have fought for years for special rights and the special perspective of women, only to find that the beneficiaries of their efforts are men pretending to be women.

Bruce Jenner exposes there's no such thing as feminism.  Ah, the Left.  They want us to believe that when it comes to celebrating Bruce Jenner's tragic descent into the mouth of madness, gender is a no-longer-needed societal construct.  That is, of course, right before they tell us to vote Hillary for president just because she's a woman.

Magazine Posts Op-Ed by a Muppet Pig on Feminism.  Now that all the power and swagger of the news magazines Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report have passed away — even as the brands continue — the death rattle of Time magazine is becoming obvious... when you run articles "written" by Muppets.  On Time's "Ideas" blog on Thursday [6/4/2015], they posted an article headlined "Miss Piggy: Why I Am a Feminist Pig."  Apparently, the Muppet star never burned her bra, but feels like as an accomplished "Porcine American," she can be included in the pantheon of great feminists.

The Editor says...
Liberals use fictional characters — for example, Lisa Simpson, Murphy Brown, Gloria Stivic, and now Miss Piggy — to spread feminist propaganda.  Every time such an event happens, the left-wing liberal news media spread the propaganda as far and wide as they can.  The low-information voters, sitting at home in a stupor as the television wastes their lives away, tend to admire these fictional characters as great role models and spokeswomen for progressive ideas, without considering that every word spoken by a such a character is written by a committee months in advance.  We'd all sound like geniuses if given months to prepare every word.

Why men won't marry you.  When more women make themselves sexually available, the pool of marriageable men diminishes.  "In a world where women do not say no, the man is never forced to settle down and make serious choices," writes George Gilder, author of "Men and Marriage."  Scoff if you wish.  Call me a fuddy-duddy.  But how's that new plan working out? [...] In the span of just a few decades, America has demoted men from respected providers and protectors of the family to superfluous buffoons.  Today's sitcoms and commercials routinely paint a portrait of the idiot husband whose wife is smarter and more capable than he.

5 Pieces Of Evidence That The "War On Women" Is Over And Women Won.  As the late, great Eric Hoffer once said, "Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket."  So it is with feminism.  There was a time in America when women couldn't vote, when they weren't allowed to work in the same professions as men and when they weren't really considered the equal of a man.  Feminism grew in response to that and even many men embraced it because they saw the inherent unfairness of society.

It's Time To Push Back Against Feminist Bullies.  A relatively small percentage of the population identifies as feminist — only about 20 percent of Americans, according to [a] 2013 poll.  And whatever you think of feminism, its bullies are an even smaller subset of that group.  Feminists — and feminist bullies — can seem more populous than they are for two important reasons.  One is that much of our media lacks diversity of thought.  Many reflexively identify as feminist and promote feminism, unaware, perhaps, of how outside the mainstream much feminist discourse has become.  Another reason is that social media amplifies outrage machines, which are easily manipulated by feminist bullies demanding some kind of action.

Obama, Jon Stewart and Progressivism's Bodyguard of Lies.  [Scroll down]  Political correctness, though, isn't just a new form of good manners that conveniently silences us.  Instead, as Orwell predicted when he dreamed up Newspeak, PC codes force us to lie to ourselves.  PC thought force upon us the lie that men are women and women are men, just because a vocal minority wants that to be true. [...] PC thought forces upon us the lie that women are precisely the same as men in all ways and should therefore be integrated into America's military precisely as if they were men.  In the same way, PC's tyranny of the intellect forces us to pretend that women's sexual make-up is the same as men's.  This is not a harmless lie.  It leads to a culture that degrades women, whether by turning them into the perfect victims for sadists or leaving them a mass of quivering fear because of fear of false rape statistics (statistics that are gamed based upon another lie, which is that women never lie).

Gavin McInnes: Women Happier at Home With the Kids.  What started out as a discussion of the (so-called) gender wage gap evolved into the verbal equivalent of a cage match on Hannity on Thursday [5/14/2015] when Gavin McInnes, author of The Death of Cool, told Fox News contributor Tamara Holder that part of the reason for the wage gap is that women are less ambitious than men.  "Women do earn less in America because they choose to," McInnes said.  "They would rather go to their daughter's piano recital than stay all night at work working on a proposal.  So they end up — they're less ambitious.  This is God's way of saying women should be at home with the kids.  They're happier there."

Boys Explained: If It's Fun, Let's Make It Dangerous.  They are fearless.  Anything seems possible, and anything is worth trying.  They are born with an implicit understanding that it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission.  If it's fun, let's make it dangerous.  Loud is good and big is better.  And if you can turn something small and meaningless into something big and loud and powerful?  Well, that is really the ultimate victory.  We've taken a lot away from them in our "sit still, behave, stay inside, talk nicely, inside voices, please don't try that, what did I tell you, be safe" culture.

In Austin, outrage over city-sponsored seminar on female leadership.  It was supposed to be a training seminar for city employees on how to deal with a new leadership dynamic:  a female-dominated City Council.  Instead, the seminar in hip and left-leaning Austin, Texas, has triggered a political brouhaha resulting in one high-level resignation and an ongoing investigation — all after word leaked that management experts at the city-sponsored seminar dared to say that woman process information differently than men; view issues differently; and need to be treated differently.  One expert was widely quoted as suggesting that women tend to ask too many questions (or at least more than men do) in part because they dislike dealing with financial minutia provided in memos before meetings.  Members of the female-dominated City Council were outraged.

Group pushing to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 selects Harriet Tubman as their candidate.  A group campaigning to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with a woman has announced who they want that woman to be:  Harriet Tubman.  Starting in March, the non-profit Women on 20s held two rounds of voting in which the conductor of the Underground Railroad claimed victory over 99 other trailblazing women including Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Tex. bill would bar local officials from issuing same-sex-marriage licenses.  Texas Republicans are pushing legislation to bar local officials from granting same-sex couples licenses to marry, launching a preemptive strike against a possible U.S. Supreme Court ruling next month that could declare gay marriage legal.  Supporters of the measure, which is scheduled for a vote as soon as Tuesday [5/12/2015] in the Texas House, said it would send a powerful message to the court.  Taking a cue from the anti-abortion movement, they said they also hoped to keep any judicially sanctioned right to same-sex marriage tied up in legal battles for years to come.

Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries.  [#7] In The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan, born in 1921, disparaged traditional stay-at-home motherhood as life in "a comfortable concentration camp" — a role that degraded women and denied them true fulfillment in life.  She later became founding president of the National Organization for Women.  Her original vocation, tellingly, was not stay-at-home motherhood but left-wing journalism.

I Spent 17 Years as a Stay-at-Home Mom and Have Zero Regrets.  During Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, a controversy arose about the president allegedly funnelling money through his wife's law firm for state business.  When asked about it by a reporter, Hillary Clinton responded in her trademark caustic style:  ["]I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.["]  This was before her handlers realized that Hillary needed to be kept in a protective media-free zone for her own good, because when she speaks her mind, venom often flows out.  Hillary likely thought it was virtuous to derisively dismiss stay-at-home mothers — housewives — who were putzing their lives away wiping snotty noses and baking cookies all day instead of participating in some meaningful paid labor.

Attack of the Leftist Snowflakes.  Partnering with the American Enterprise Institute, [Christina Hoff] Sommers has made a splash with her "Factual Feminist" video series, in which she calmly challenges and debunks oft-accepted and frequently absurd feminist talking points.  A few examples:  No, it is not true, as is often repeated, that one in five college women will be the victim of sexual assault.  (The number, according to the Department of Justice, is more like 6 in 1,000.)  No, the male-to-female "wage gap" is not solely based on insidious gender discrimination, helmed by an evil network of sexy Don Draper look-alikes.

The Feminist Fantasy of Women in Combat.  President Obama seems hellbent on forcing the women of the U.S. military into direct combat units at great potential risk both to themselves and their fellow soldiers.  Obama supplicants in the military have been cowed by radical feminist ideology.  They are promoting change for the sake of ideology, not because it is actually needed.

Hillary's coattail career and her glass-ceiling myths.  Strangely, feminists ignore the damning facts about how Hillary got where she is.  Recently, Hillary addressed 5,000 Silicon Valley businesswomen — real career women.  Vowing to "crack every last glass ceiling," a hint at her White House ambitions, she urged them to demand equal pay and promotions.  She invoked her own supposed early struggles to become the first female partner at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas while a new mother.  But in truth, even then she was riding on Bill's coattails.  She got the law job in 1977 — surprise — just after he was sworn in as the state's attorney general.  Then, two years later when he was inaugurated as governor — bingo! — she was vaulted to partner.  Hardly the struggle she now recalls.  Though Hillary was called a trial lawyer, her former colleagues told The New York Times they can't remember her ever trying a case.

The Second Demographic Transition — The End of Humanity as We've Known It.  Economist Nicholas Eberstadt lays out a bleak future in an important essay just published in The Wall Street Journal.  Eberstadt makes the case that selfishness, as evidenced by the unwillingness of people to get married in the first place and stay married in the second, is setting humanity on an unknown and potentially dangerous course.  Eberstadt describes a global flight from family.  "All around the world today, pre-existing family patterns are being upended by a revolutionary new force:  the seemingly unstoppable quest for convenience by adults demanding ever-greater autonomy," he writes.

New Liberal Christmas Tradition: Mary Was Raped.  Valerie Tarico wrote an article at Alternet, republished at Salon, that should get her a lot of invites to ironically themed liberal Christmas parties.  The title:  "Why rape is so intrinsic to religion."  Tarico lays out a series of myths from pagan traditions, mostly Greek and Roman, in which women are abducted, violated, and coerced.  We have Danae, Europa, Rea Silvia... and, what do you know, the Virgin Mary.

Not working for the working class.  [Scroll down]  So if Democrats want to win back the white working class — and they kind of need to, if they want to win elections, because it's an enormous demographic — maybe they need to start thinking about honoring and encouraging work, rather than talking about race or class.  One person who has some ideas in this direction is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who suggests that the government invest heavily in infrastructure, which would create a lot of blue-collar jobs.  That was actually an original part of Barack Obama's stimulus plan, but it was derailed by feminists within the Obama coalition who thought it would produce too many jobs for men.

Modern Feminism: Appalling Stupidity Backed by Hysterical Rage.  Modern feminism is getting embarrassing.  There's a reason why so few women identify as feminists:  It's less a true "women's movement" than the public face of hysterical leftist intolerance — combined, of course, with utterly bizarre (and bizarrely stupid) ideas.  While I had numerous brushes with extremist feminists in law school — women who declared that all (heterosexual) sex was rape and often responded with literal screams to classroom speech they didn't like — it all felt fashionably fake.  Surely no one took that level of extremism into the real world, did they?  Then my wife encountered a lesbian couple in Ithaca, N.Y., who was raising their child to be "genderless."  They refused to call him a boy or girl, allowing him to "choose his gender" identity during his teenage years.  And, apparently, they are not alone.

Neo-Victorianism on Campus.  It is impossible to overstate the growing weirdness of the college sex scene.  Campus feminists are reimporting selective portions of a traditional sexual code that they have long scorned, in the name of ending what they preposterously call an epidemic of campus rape.  They are once again making males the guardians of female safety and are portraying females as fainting, helpless victims of the untrammeled male libido.  They are demanding that college administrators write highly technical rules for sex and aggressively enforce them, 50 years after the proponents of sexual liberation insisted that college adults stop policing student sexual behavior.

Brave New Stereotypes.  [Scroll down]  The statistics [...] come in bite-size, journalist-friendly squibs:  Men make up only half the labor force, down from 70 percent a generation ago.  Sixty percent of the bachelor's degrees in the United States are earned by women.  Women hold most entry-level managerial jobs.  Single women in urban areas out-earn men by as much as 8 percent, on average.  Among all younger women, the infamous "pay gap" with men has shrunk to statistical insignificance.  By some measures women dominate most of the fastest-growing professions.  Over the last 30 years, their wages have risen 25 percent while those of men have fallen 4 percent.

Why women still need husbands.  Over the past several decades, America has witnessed a profound change in the way women view men and marriage.  It began with the baby boomer adage "never depend on a man."  This message resulted in a generation of women who turned their attention away from the home and onto the workforce.  They did what their mothers told them to do:  they became financially independent so they'd never have to rely on a husband.  In time, "never depend on a man" turned into the full-blown belief that men are superfluous.

The unhappiest workers of all.  How's that feminism workin' out for ya?  According to a survey reported in a Psychology Today article, the unhappiest workers are:
42 years old
Have a household income under $100,000
Work in a professional position (i.e., as a doctor or a lawyer).
Sounds exactly like the feminist ideal:  a woman who needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.  On her own, independent, unburdened, I am woman, hear me roar.  Except that she's not very happy.

Katie Pavlich Takes Down the Feminist Marxists.  The leftwing tradition of turning worthless men who abuse women into false icons goes all the way back to grandpa Marx. [...] "Marxist teaching" wrote Pavlich, [whose] family lived under Communism in Yugoslavia, "is not a tiny fringe part of the modern, militant feminists' agenda.  It is its centerpiece."  Among its most basic tenants are that family and monogamy are awful for women.  Pavlich responds:  "In reality, a monogamous relationship is anything but sexually exploitative.  The principles of monogamy are based on mutual respect, commitment, trust, care, and comfort in order to protect a significant other."

Turkish President: 'Equality between men and women is against nature'.  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said equality between men and women is "against nature" at a summit in Istanbul.  He sparked outrage with the speech made at a convention organised by women's groups campaigning to eliminate gender discrimination in all its forms.

Meet the Woman Who Wants to Reduce The Male Population by 90% "For Peace".  Meet a 22-year-old, southern criminology student with a three-year-old child.  She calls herself the Femitheist and has a blog, YouTube channel, and is writing a book all about the "importance" of reducing the male population to roughly 1-10% in order to achieve world peace and "true equality."  Somehow, she expects this to end war, rape, and violence in general.  Though this seems like trying to end violence by committing violence — because it is — she asserts that it is "the only logical solution."

The Editor says...
I doubt if she has put much thought into her claim that a ratio of 10 women to every man would achieve "true equality."  What does that say about women?

Feminist, Liberal Media Demand 'Free Tampons' For All.  It's the terminus point of modern feminism:  make the deeply personal very publicly political, and get someone else to pay for it!  If one man is keeping you in the style to which you're accustomed, you're a kept woman — perhaps even [shudder] a stay-at-home mom.  But if your sugar is funneled from thousands of hapless tax payers through a legion of faceless bureaucrats, you're a tower of feminist self-determination.  Fight the power, sisters!  Demand government tampons!

Scenes from the feminist implosion.  The radical feminists are under attack because they don't accept in their ranks people born as biological men but now convinced they're women.  The RadFemmers argue that the transgendered just aren't oppressed enough to gain membership.  Goldberg explains their position:  "Anyone born a man retains male privilege in society; even if he chooses to live as a woman — and accept a correspondingly subordinate social position — the fact that he has a choice means that he can never understand what being a woman is really like."  Got that?  Yet the RadFem women are apparently in the minority.  Most young Women's Studies majors consider the transgendered to be whatever the transgendered say they are.

How about bring back the draft to include women?  This push to have women in combat is based on an ideological premise of equality; it is not based on merit or common sense.  Feminizing the military is a huge mistake that will endanger the lives of soldiers who are already in combat situations and that ignores the physical restraints of women.  We are not as physically strong as men.  We are not as muscular.  That is a given.

Huffington Post Endorses Paid 'Menstrual Leave' for Working Women.  HuffPost Live held a discussion about a current topic in employment: whether women deserve paid "menstrual leave." [...] The editors of the left-wing news aggregator displayed emphatic support for the feminist cause by declaring on their homepage that "America Is Way Behind On Paid 'Menstrual Leave.'"

The Editor scoffs...
Really?  Name the countries that consider this a problem and have laws to deal with it.

The incredible hypocrisy of 21st Century feminism.  As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases.  Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted.  In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

'Ban Bossy': A Bad Remedy for a Fictional Problem.  A closer look at the research invoked by "Ban Bossy" defenders shows it to be shaky and selective.  What's more, the "facts" cited on the campaign's own website are such a collection of abused data that it brings to mind another common B-word — the crude synonym for bovine excrement.

Unmasking the junk science behind the #BanBossy campaign.  [Scroll down]  Claim 5:  Between elementary school and high school, girls' self-esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys'.  This was another study conducted in the early 90s.  How do you even measure self-esteem?  Apparently, by five measures:  "I like the way I look," "I like most things about myself," "I'm happy the way I am," "Sometimes I don't like myself that much" and "I wish I were somebody else."  The dating website eHarmony asks more questions than that before you even start your dating profile.  You know what's not in the study?  Any mention of the word "bossy."  Is that word the reason behind girls' self-esteem problems?

The Legitimacy of White Male Anger.  When one enrolls in a course taught by a feminist professor, one hears a familiar story:  the integration of the trades.  When women first moved into the blue collar trades they received a rather unfriendly reception from the men already there.  While this is bad, and the men shouldn't have done this, do feminists ever stop and consider the men's perspective?  The man they replaced probably needed that job more, and suffered more for the loss of it than the woman gained by taking it.  Given the social norms, men were expected to be the breadwinners, they had families to support.  Bemoan the norms all you want, but their existence is a matter of fact not opinion.

We're losing the war on poverty because our schools turn boys into eunuchs.  As men increasingly check out of work, marriage, and fatherhood, it's hard not to root for a man fiercely determined to secure his family's future before dying — despite his morally abhorrent methods.  That there are dramatically fewer men willing and able to safeguard family prosperity is perhaps America's greatest — and most unrecognized — problem. [...] First, two times more men than women aged 25-34 languish in their parents' basement far below the glass ceiling, according to U.S. Census data.  Second, women now outperform men in nearly every measure of social, academic and vocational well-being.

Feminist Film: Violence Caused by (Surprise!) Masculinity.  The focus of "The Mask" is the male population's place in and relationship to American culture.  Predictably, judging from the trailer and the film's enthusiastic reception in left-leaning media, traditional masculinity is a leading cause of murder and mayhem.

Camille Paglia: War on Men Destroying American Culture.  Paglia disparages the mushiness that has become rampant in American culture, beginning as early as kindergarten.  "Primary-school education is a crock, basically.  It's oppressive to anyone with physical energy, especially guys," she says, and observes how difficult it is for boys in schools that have discontinued recess.  "They're making a toxic environment for boys.  Primary education does everything in its power to turn boys into neuters."  Paglia is especially tuned in to this situation now that she is raising her 11 year-old son with her ex-partner, artist and teacher Alison Maddex, who lives nearby.  Paglia sees that "female values," such as sensitivity, socialization, and cooperation, are fostered and put up on a pedestal in schools over creative energy and the teaching of hard facts.  She notes that it only gets worse in colleges and universities.

Five Ways Lenin's Propaganda Destroyed Marriage And The Family In Russia.  Lenin and his feminist lieutenants, particularly Alexandra Kollontai, the first female commissar in the Soviet government, considered much of what the suffragettes were fighting for, including voting rights and equal protection under the law, "bourgeois convention."  What they had in mind was something far more radical:  An all-out war on "old and outdated" institutions like marriage and family so dominance of the state could be achieved.  Instead of marriage, there would be more disposable "unions of affection and comradeship."  The first salvo in the "liberation" of the family was easy divorce, established almost immediately by the Bolsheviks.  Abortion on demand — until then illegal in every country in the world — came in 1920.

Why women still need husbands.  Over the past several decades, America has witnessed a profound change in the way women view men and marriage.  It began with the baby boomer adage "never depend on a man."  This message resulted in a generation of women who turned their attention away from the home and onto the workforce.  They did what their mothers told them to do:  they became financially independent so they'd never have to rely on a husband.  In time, "never depend on a man" turned into the full-blown belief that men are superfluous.  In 2010 Jennifer Aniston claimed women needn't "fiddle with a man" to have a child.

Why would Obama send American girls into combat?  Under Defense Department mandates, the armed forces are implementing incremental plans to order (not "allow") women into Army and Marine infantry and special operations forces that attack the enemy.  Acquiescent generals insist that training standards will be "the same" for men and women, but the fine-print "catch" is hidden in plain sight.  Footnotes in a June Marine Corps report to Congress stated that physical fitness and combat fitness Test standards would be "gender-neutral" with "gender-normed" scores that "account for physiological differences between the genders."  In the Marines' new physical fitness test — recently postponed owing to "potential risks" — women will have to complete three pull-ups.  Five more will earn 100 points, but men will have to do 20 to get the same score.

The feminist campaign to make weaklings of America's warriors.  Feminism is trying to yank the U.S. military in two directions at once.  While claiming that women have no problem meeting the rigorous standards of the SEALs or infantry, advocates of opening these branches to women argue that female members of the military must be protected from the male sexual predators that, we are assured, are widely represented in the military.  However, they can't have it both ways.  Are women "hear me roar" Amazons, or are they fragile flowers who must be protected from "sexual harassment," encouraged to level the charge at the drop of the hat?

Meet the seemingly unfireable female firefighter.  Despite failing a required FDNY running test five times, Wendy Tapia was allowed to graduate from the Fire Academy and become a firefighter.  On Dec. 2, she is taking the test for an unprecedented sixth time. [...] At the end of 18 weeks of probationary training, Tapia failed to run 1½ miles in 12 minutes without gear, as required by the academy.  She blamed a foot injury.  The FDNY let her graduate anyway — and gave her five more deadlines over the past six months to pass the running test.  She failed all five times, insiders said.  Normally, probationary firefighters who fail the running test at the end of academy training don't graduate — period.

'Unfireable' female FDNY firefighter quits.  The female FDNY probie who was allowed to graduate from the Fire Academy without passing a required running test has quit.  Wendy Tapia, 31, resigned Thursday [11/21/2013] after trying again — her sixth attempt — to run 1.5 miles in 12 minutes or less, officials said.  "She didn't make the 12-minute cutoff," an FDNY spokesman said.  "She'll return back to EMS ranks."

Jezebel, the 'Mainstream' of Feminism.  [Scroll down]  Now this website has been transformed into a book, "The Book of Jezebel," a snark-loaded feminist encyclopedia.  It can be repetitive.  The condom is "a must-have accessory for protection against two potentially life-threatening conditions:  AIDS (among other STIs) and babies."  You read that sentence correctly.  "Children" are defined as "the side effect of sex," and "nephew, niece" is defined as "child of a sibling, a partner's sibling, or a dear friend.  They work well as both practice kids and as reminders to use birth control."  A "zygote" is "too young to be a slut, so way more entitled to civil rights than you are."  The Jezebel entry for "misogyny" is "Exemplified by God, Aristotle, Phyllis Schlafly, Rush Limbaugh, The Republican Party, Allen West."

Boyhood Is Not a Mental Illness.  The purpose of psychologist Enrico Gnaulati's 2013 book is to argue how ordinary childhood behavior is often misdiagnosed as ADD, ADHD, depression and autism — frequently with life-long, disturbing consequences. [...] He cites numerous studies showing that typical boy behavior — wrestling, rough games of tag, good guy/bad guy imaginative play that involves "shooting" — are condemned by preschool and elementary school teachers, the vast majority of whom are women, without the behavior being redirected appropriately to release boys' "natural aggression."  Boys who play in the way noted above are not on a path to mass murder, contrary to what zero tolerance school policies suggest.  For the vast majority of them, they are simply on the path to manhood.

School Has Become Too Hostile to Boys.  In May, Christopher Marshall, age 7, was suspended from his Virginia school for picking up a pencil and using it to "shoot" a "bad guy" — his friend, who was also suspended.  A few months earlier, Josh Welch, also 7, was sent home from his Maryland school for nibbling off the corners of a strawberry Pop-Tart to shape it into a gun.  At about the same time, Colorado's Alex Evans, age 7, was suspended for throwing an imaginary hand grenade at "bad guys" in order to "save the world."  In all these cases, school officials found the children to be in violation of the school's zero-tolerance policies for firearms, which is clearly a ludicrous application of the rule.  But common sense isn't the only thing at stake here.  In the name of zero tolerance, our schools are becoming hostile environments for young boys.

The Dread Pony.  Much has been written about the infantilization of the American male, which for a change is not media hype.  The average age of video-gamers is now 37, and 2011 census data show roughly a quarter of 25-to-34-year-olds still living with their parents.  By some counts, more adult-leaning superhero/comic-book movies have been made in the last couple of years than in the entire decades of the '50s, '60s, and '70s combined.

Children are being taught "men cause climate change."  Not mankind in general, just men.
Indoctrination At Schools In Germany Reaches New Level.  The main message of the text is that men, with their macho lifestyles, produce far more CO2 than women and thus the planet is suffering because of it.  The text cites scientific studies (from women) and presents claims made by the studies as fact.

A civilization where 'few men are left'.  What does it mean about a culture when ads pitched to men are increasingly about whiter teeth and dieting and hormone enhancement, and when commercial advertising is constantly based on the "dumb male" premise?

Women Can Thank Women's Movement ... for Nothing.  The Women's Movement has gotten what it wants, and now women are MEN!  Congratulations for achieving nothing.

Rise in Female Breadwinners Means America Is a Loser.  When women start doing what men have traditionally done, yours is a civilization of the setting sun.  This is brought to mind when pondering a recent Pew Research Center study showing that women are now the primary or sole breadwinners in 40 percent of American households.

Feminism may be dead: 72 percent of Americans say they're not 'feminists'.  It is likely disappointing news for old school bra-burners and Gloria Steinham-inspired activists.  "Has feminist become a dirty word?" demands a new Economist/YouGov Poll released Wednesday [5/1/2013].  "Feminism is a mixed bag in the eyes of most Americans.  Overall, 28 percent consider themselves to be feminists, 72 percent do not," the findings report.

Feminist Leaders Compared to Religious Right Leaders.  Gloria Steinem was the beauty queen of the feminist movement.  Steinem, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate, was engaged to her college boyfriend.  After breaking up with him and discovering that she was pregnant, she had an abortion.  She remained childless.  Later, Steinem founded Ms. Magazine and coined two phrases — "reproductive freedom" and "pro-choice" — bringing a brilliant sense of marketing to a movement that glossed over the realities of promiscuity and abortion and propelled so-called "sexual freedom" into the mainstream.  Steinem famously declared that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

Title IX for our boys.  Large urban school districts are losing students at an alarming pace.  They're going to charter schools, to online schools and to home-schooling.  But now there's another reason for parents to think about moving their children out of public schools — the boys.  It seems that teachers — overwhelmingly female — just might be prejudiced against boys and it's hurting their grades.  Stereotyped as "naughty," boys quickly learn that they are thought of as dumber and more trouble than girls.  And that has consequences.

The Welfare State and Manhood.  To the statists or to big-government ideologues and their supporters, the motivation behind the admission of women into combat is the reverse of the feminist's motivation, because the statist knows that for the social welfare state to succeed, it is a question not of women being elevated, but of men being degraded.  To the statist, the fundamental purpose of employing women in military combat is to destroy the unique virtues that define manhood.

20 Reasons America Is Becoming An Increasingly Nonfunctional Society.  [#11]  Women becoming educated, moving into the work force and becoming much more independent has been a positive development.  However, the downside of it is that it has led to later marriages, a soaring divorce rate, more out-of-wedlock birth, and much more conflict, discontent, and fights over children between the sexes.  Marriage and relationships are an order of magnitude more complicated for Americans today than they were sixty years ago.

59 percent support women entering would-be draft, poll says.  As the Pentagon unveiled plans to reverse a ban on women serving on the front lines, a poll released Wednesday [6/19/2013] found that most registered voters believe women should be eligible for a military draft if one is reinstituted.  The survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research shows that 59 percent believe women should be included if a draft becomes necessary again, compared to 38 percent who say they should not be included.

The feminists and anti-war protestors are all completely silent.
Next question: Must women register for the draft?  For as long as women have been excluded from combat, they've also been exempt from having to register for the Selective Service System, the database kept just in case all hell breaks loose and the U.S. must reintroduce the draft.  But now that women are being admitted into combat units, the justification for making only young men register is on shaky ground.  "It would seem a little strange to have nearly every job in the military open to women and not also require them to register for Selective Service," said David McKean, legal director at the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network.

Confessions of a Bad Woman.  I suppose I'm a bad woman — by today's standards, that is.  For some reason, I take absolutely no pride in the accomplishments of women per se.  I am utterly uninspired by first women astronauts or secretaries of state.  It is of no consequence to me what percentage of the United States Senate or House of Representatives shares my chromosome pattern.  I don't wait with gnawing impatience for America to pass the milestone of needing a fellow to fill the post of first gentleman.

The war on men.  All the articles and books (and television programs, for that matter) put women front and center, while men and children sit in the back seat.  But after decades of browbeating the American male, men are tired.  Tired of being told there's something fundamentally wrong with them.  Tired of being told that if women aren't happy, it's men's fault.

Hey, Man-Hating, Nerve-Grating Feminists: Good Fathers Are Irreplaceable.  I have two twentysomething daughters who're currently taking over the planet.  When these female charges popped out of their mommy's womb, this thing called "responsibility for their upbringing" hit me like a Jackie Chan punch.  I didn't slough off my role in their lives onto my wife, my church, public school, day care, relatives, TV, or "the village."  I didn't expect any of the aforementioned to fill my boots chiefly because ... they can't.

Hillary Clinton: 'I've Made Women a Cornerstone of American Foreign Policy'.  During her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton says she's instructed U.S. diplomats and development experts to "partner with women to find ways to engage and build on their unique strengths, help women start businesses, help girls attend school" and "push" women to get involved in peace talks and elections.  "I've made women a cornerstone of American foreign policy," Clinton told a 'Women in the World Summit' in New York City on Saturday [3/10/2012].

China's One Child Policy: A Real War on Women.  While the American feminist left devotes its time, money and energy to pushing for taxpayer-funded contraception, claiming the right to call each other "slut," and ranting about the right's fictional "War on Women," there is a real war being waged on one out of every five women and girls in the world — China's "One Child Policy."  The soul-wrenching reality of this rather bureaucratic-sounding term is a cruelty that is unimaginable to most Americans:  forced abortion and sterilization, female infanticide, and a concomitant rise in sexual slavery throughout Asia.

Gender-Specific Writer.  Apple offers its own word-processing program called Pages that you can have for $20.00. ... Pages has traits that are not immediately apparent, however.  While it's a sturdy little word processor, its true personality is not revealed until you use the proofreader — or Proofreadress, as I now think of her.  Yes, she's female all right.  Seems to have been designed and programmed by the women's-studies department of the Cupertino community college.

Apple's covert war on gender-specific expressions.  Why do feminists perceive it as a threat to gender equality to acknowledge that men and women are, in fact, different?  Why are they unable to see that what is uniquely female — yes, I'm talking, among other things, about childbearing and mothering — has a value all its own?  By denying the value of the uniquely female, they essentially say women are unequal to men, that what women alone can contribute to society is of less value than what men alone can contribute.

Save the World on Your Own Dime.  One public university in North Carolina has just found money to start (in the midst of a budget crisis) a new scholarship to reward feminists for engaging in feminist political activism on the job.  Here in the Tar Heel state, this year's budget cut in higher education is nearly 16%.  But there was still enough money in the pot to create a new Janet Mason Ellerby Women and Gender Studies Scholarly Award.  The award was created to recognize Ellerby's "significant contributions to feminist scholarship and activism."  What are those contributions?

How the Dual Income Destroys the Lower Classes.  It is oftentimes complained, partially unfairly, that the American lower classes are getting poorer and poorer.  But enough has been written, by practically every conservative think-tank, about how the welfare state and anti-discrimination legislation destroy neighborhoods and promote the business interests of those with poor moral constitutions (leftists, primarily) by providing layabouts with an arsenal of unreasonable lawsuits.  This article, recognizing the above socioeconomic maxims, will seek instead to show how two-income households have played an equal, if not greater role in impoverishing American lower classes.  This aspect of American poverty has not been adequately addressed — perhaps, considering how feminism pushes women into the workplace, because it is now culturally offensive to do so.

Our Colleges and Universities Produce Educated Fools.  Judge Robert Bork, in his great book, Slouching Towards Gomorrah, 1996, contends that the feminist movement was even more harmful to our country than the homosexual movement, although he wrote that book before the homosexual movement was in full swing.  He gives many examples of how things similar to what happened to [Lawrence H.] Summers have harmed our institutions of higher learning, and our military forces.  He thought that the feminist movement, along with the other liberal agendas, may have gone so far that our country is irredeemably on its way to self destruction.

Is the NCAA Anti-Male?  In 1972, Congresswoman Patsy Mink authored an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. ... The law was called Title IX.  The question now is whether this admirable idea has evolved into a law that is anti-male, and particularly anti-black male.

The government is really good at solving problems that have already been solved.
Big Sister in the Workplace.  Today there are twice as many women in the American workforce as there were four decades ago, three times as many women getting college degrees.  More working women than men now hold degrees.  The growth rate of female-owned businesses stands at four times the growth rate of male-owned businesses.  Labor Secretary Hilda Solis acknowledges all of these statistics.  But it seems that an admission of reality by the head of the U.S. Labor Department is no guarantee that reality will influence Labor policy.  After touting dramatic progress by women in corporations, universities, and small businesses, Solis still thinks that government must do more for women.

Sisterhood and the SEALs.  It was just a matter of time before the successful Navy SEAL operation against Osama bin Laden on May 1 provoked a complaint that SEAL teams are all-male.  Sure enough, Washington Post pundit (and founder of the feminist website Jezebel.com) Anna Holmes came through last week with a column denouncing the "paternalistic, discriminatory" exclusion of women from special-operations units and comparing that exclusion to racial segregation.

There Is No Male-Female Wage Gap.  A study of single, childless urban workers between the ages of 22 and 30 found that women earned 8% more than men.

Where the Women's Movement Went Wrong.  International Women's Day was celebrated earlier this month and Daniel Craig, the latest James Bond, donned a dress and blonde wig in a short film to focus on the inequality between the sexes.  It's only fitting that this masculine movie star made this simpatico gesture because let's face it — the real beneficiaries of the modern women's movement were men.  The sixties movement of feminism was completely unlike that of the early pioneers battling for suffrage.

Wrestler forfeits rather than fight a girl.
Iowa's girl wrestlers: Some drama, some sport.  The crowd cheered as Cassy Herkelman's hand was raised, but the historic moment of the first girl to win a match at the traditional state wrestling meet comes with an asterisk.  Her opponent, Joel Northrup of Linn-Mar of Marion, forfeited.

Not Wrestling Girls.  It's so easy to look at teenagers in general today and sigh.  They're more than a bit lazy, a bit spoiled and more than a bit morally compromised.  Two teenagers made national news.  One showed common decency and sportsmanship, two virtues seemingly uncommon in that generation.  Hope is restored.

Should Boys Be Wrestling Girls?  This year's Iowa state championships attracted attention nationwide when the promising high school sophomore Joel Northrup (the fifth-ranked wrestler in the state) defaulted on his first match.  He had drawn Cassy Herkelman, a female freshman, as his opponent, and he could not, in good conscience, wrestle a girl. ... Had he not declined to wrestle Herkelman, he might have won it all.  The New York Times, the AP, and other national news organizations noted that Northrup's father is a minister — the suggestion being that such peculiar and backward views as the young man expressed must be chalked up to a religious sensibility.  Most of the coverage stressed the "girl against the old boys network" angle.

Feminism Has Become a Hot Topic.  The liberals have unjustly blamed Sarah Palin for many things, but there's one thing for which she is probably responsible: making feminism the hot topic that it has become today.  Every couple of years Time and Newsweek ask "Is Feminism Dead?", but all of a sudden feminism is being discussed and debated in the MSM.

Phyllis Schlafly talks on failings of feminism.  Phyllis Schlafly, founder and president of Eagle Forum and a national leader of the conservative movement since the early 1960s, says she's discovered women, because of the feminist movement, have more freedom, education and power, but less happiness.

Equal Rights Or Neo-Paternalism?  The ideology of legal feminism today goes far beyond the original and widely supported goal of equal treatment for both sexes.  The new agenda is to redistribute power from the "dominant class" (men) to the "subordinate class" (women), and such key concepts of Western jurisprudence as judicial neutrality and individual rights are declared to be patriarchal fictions designed to protect male privilege.

NOW Goes Shark-Jumping.  The women of NOW share a palpable disdain for certain women, but particularly those who refuse to accept the narrative of their inequity — and most notably Sarah Palin.  In an August 2008 press release, PAC Chair Kim Gandy stated, "'[W]e recognize the importance of having women's rights supporters at every level but, like Sarah Palin, not every woman supports women's rights."  Or, in the words of University of Chicago professor Wendy Doniger, Palin's "greatest hypocrisy is in the pretense that she is a woman."  Touché.  Meet the feminists of today, or, Women In Name Only.

The Descent of Woman.  If there were an enemy bent on destroying all humanity, he would find no better place to start than by destroying femininity.  Despite social pressures to the contrary, women will probably always form the next generation.  "Liberating" young girls from a model of purity and docility to God and supplanting it with a burden of guilt, shame, and rage would breed mothers who would inevitably infuse their children with resentments and hostilities thereby creating a self-propagating blight sure to infect future generations.  If the attack coincided with a decline in religious belief that precluded the prospect of divine forgiveness, the potential for human devastation would be unlimited.

Epic "Feminist" Hypocrisy.  The day after he (or a member of his staff) is caught on tape calling Meg Whitman a whore, Jerry Brown has announced the endorsement of the National Organization of Women (NOW).  You know, it's fashionable in feminist circles to sit around bemoaning the fact that few young women want to identify themselves as feminists.  Wanna know why?  This kind of hypocrisy is the reason why.

National Organization of W...  Jerry Brown's campaign conspired to commit political rape, calling Meg Whitman, his female political opponent, a "whore."  And he got N.O.W.'s political endorsement for doing so.  The liberal beauty mask is so off the wrinkled, geriatric, age-spotted National Organization of Whores.  Yet for all the mild hand-wringing over whether the "w-word" should have been used, no one in the Make-Believe Media is even questioning N.O.W.'s endorsement much less mocking the utter hypocrisy of it all.

California NOW Chief: Calling Whitman a 'Whore' is Accurate.  The president of the National Organization for Women may have said it's wrong for anyone to call a woman a "whore," but the head of the California NOW affiliate says Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman is one.

Those Dirty Democrats.  [Scroll down]  The personal attacks from Democrats know no bounds. ... For an organization that claims to "take action to bring about equality for all women" and "eradicate sexism" to come out and ENDORSE Jerry Brown literally a day after the recorded message came to light is simply uncalled for and inexcusable.

Eek! A Male!  Last week, the lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, Timothy Murray, noticed smoke coming out of a minivan in his hometown of Worcester.  He raced over and pulled out two small children, moments before the van's tire exploded into flames.  At which point, according to the AP account, the kids' grandmother, who had been driving, nearly punched our hero in the face.  Why?  Mr. Murray said she told him she thought he might be a kidnapper.  And so it goes these days, when almost any man who has anything to do with a child can find himself suspected of being a creep.

The Editor says...
This is the inevitable fruit of the fatherless society created by the welfare state.  Interaction with men is so rare that the natural assumption is that they must be up to no good.

The Envious Feminists.  [Scroll down]  This brings us to a truth about classical feminists:  They hate traditional motherhood — which, dare I say, is true motherhood — because they are jealous of traditional mothers.  When they ridicule a woman who tends to hearth and home, it's not so much because she is kowtowing to the patriarchy or not taking her place in the phalanx of the sisterhood.  It is because the mother has a good that they, for some reason, cannot have.  And women are notorious for being jealous of one another.

Poll:  Women today treated with less chivalry.  Feminists may insist that life for women has gotten better since the days when raucous female activists marched in the streets for equality and questioned traditional social mores about men, marriage and career.  Pollsters say otherwise.

When Masculine Virtues Go Out of Fashion.  The culture war begun in the sixties has, in large part, been won by the left.  Nowhere is this clearer than in the feminization of men.  The virtues of manhood which had been extolled and celebrated throughout the middle ages right up to the 1950s have been completely expunged from academia and pop culture.  The baby boom generation was the last to be taught the values of rugged individualism, risk-taking, courage, bravery, loyalty, and reverence for tradition.

Feminism:  No Longer about Equality.  [Scroll down]  If the feminist movement is really trying to champion women, then they need to realize that women care about lot more than sex and reproduction issues.  Valenti recoils from the idea of trying to rally women in support of a political movement when advancing "women's causes" (i.e. abortion) isn't part of the agenda.  But those of us on the right recognize that women are citizens first and foremost.  Their biggest concerns aren't abortion and the wage gap.  Women care about the economy, unemployment, government debt, and national security.

The New Cleaning Ladies of Leftism.  Forty years ago, American society (or at least those parts of it owned by the leftist establishment) was aflutter with feminism. ... Men were dumbfounded to discover that they had been "oppressors" — that they had forced wives to stay home while they savored the sweet joys of rush-hour traffic and heart-attack jobs, that the higher life expectancy of women proved that inadequate attention had been paid to "women's health issues," that they relished the privilege of suffering horrific combat wounds while women performed noncombatant roles in the military, and that the sex which owned most of the wealth of our nation was also, somehow, the helpless sex.

Forty Years of Feminism Now Bearing Fruit.  [Scroll down]  This is the bitter fruit of forty years of feminist domination in the United States.  Virtue, self-worth, and man's moral value are DOA in the age of the cultural domination of the left.  What an awful stench this decaying corpse gives off, lying in a smoldering, fetid pile of ash. ... I am sickened by this — not because I am prudish, but because it speaks volumes about how girls view themselves and their roles, not to mention the ever-increasing diminishing of women in American society.

Rabid feminism is self-extingishing.
Roe, Roe, Roe Your Boat.  If the next generation of abortion proponents is mysteriously missing, it may be because their mothers availed themselves of the right to have an abortion and thus did not become mothers.

America's Sinking Middle Class.  The U.S. middle class is sinking into government-provided economic quicksand.  U.S. living standards have declined ever since 1970; vanished stay-at-home moms were the alarm bell. ... So will the jobs be back soon?  Short answer:  No.  And the main reason, politicians' speeches to the contrary being lies, is deliberate government policy.

I'll never buy another cookie from these hapless pawns.
Girl Scouts Distribute Planned Parenthood Sex Guide at UN Meeting.  The World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations this week where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled "Healthy, Happy and Hot."  The event was part of the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which concludes this week.

Girl Scouts Back Away From Lobbying Pledge.  The Girl Scouts of the United States of America has launched a campaign called Forever Green that included an online pledge girls could sign, promising they would encourage public officials to pass emissions-reducing legislation.  But after CNSNews.com asked the organization about the political advocacy on Tuesday [2/8/2011], the pledge was removed from the Girl Scouts' Web site.  The language should not have been so "inflammatory," one official said.

Radical Feminism's Attack on Manhood in America.  Over the years, radical feminism has been attempting to demonize any display of testosterone.  The slightest aggressive behavior is taken to the ultimate extreme and used to portray males as abusers.  Their goal clearly is to wimpify maleness.

The Domestic Violence Industry's War on Men.  Over the years, as the triumphalist feminist revolution's long march through the institutions of the West proceeded with eerily unchallenged vigor, [Domestic Violence] emerged as a highly politicized touchstone justifying women's entitlements — legal, economic, familial — at the expense of boys' and men's human rights.

Demasculation of America's Boys.  The attacks on our boys are endless and very purposeful:  if they are taught to be nothing more than crude dolts then they will become emasculated men who keep to themselves.  And the women will end up wearing the pants.  I've also observed on countless occasions a minor, but powerful, display of how ours is quickly becoming a culture where men are having trouble being men:  females struggling alone to lift a heavy suitcase into the overhead compartment on a plane all the while surrounded by men who pretend they don't see.

National Organization for Irresponsible Women.  Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo is in command of 22,000 American combat forces in northern Iraq. ... Pursuant to his powers as a general officer, he issued regulations for soldiers under his command.  Some dealt with Iraqi sensibilities (soldiers were forbidden to enter mosques except in cases of "military necessity"), and others with good order and discipline (no gambling or drug use).  Additionally, the general directed that soldiers who become pregnant or impregnate someone else while deployed would be subject to courts martial.  Uh-oh.  Cue the feminists.

The teenage-ification of manhood.  The word "teenagers" appeared in the late 1940s, signalling the arrival of a new tribe of young people, the replacements for what were once called adolescents.  These self-important newcomers were not just adults-in-training, as young people had been through history.  They had a unique identity and some independence.  They had money to spend and they wanted to spend it as they chose.

Outlawing Manhood.  Across the nation, "Zero Tolerance" polices are commonplace in public school district after public school district.  And while they were ostensibly instituted to stop kids from bringing weapons on campus following the 1999 Columbine massacre, they're actually just another tool which liberals and over zealous school board members use to war against manhood.

Glass Ceilings Aren't Glass Slippers.  You don't have to be from Venus or Mars to notice that Sonia Sotomayor was appreciated more for her Hispanic roots than for female gifts.  That's how President Obama introduced her.  Firsts are firsts, after all, and Sandra Day O'Connor was followed by Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and that was that for a woman expecting recognition as a pioneer.  No one any longer regards it as worth remarking when a woman becomes a doctor, lawyer, editor, astronaut or CEO.  Women have shattered a lot of glass ceilings, and when nobody notices the broken glass, that's a sign of progress.

Why Women Are Unhappy:  The National Bureau of Economic Research released a study to be published soon in the American Economic Journal that shows women's happiness has measurably declined since 1970.  It's no surprise that this has stimulated much comment.  This study covers the same time period as the rise of the so-called women's liberation or feminist movement.  The correlation demands an explanation.

My Idea and Your Consequence.  One really bad idea that is thriving in higher education is the so-called trans-gendered rights movement.  It is thriving not because of the work of trans-gendered persons but because of feminists who are willing to use them to advance their own ideas about gender and equality.  Feminists have been increasingly enamored with the idea that there are no innate differences between men and women.  In recent years, they have been arguing with greater and greater frequency that all male/female differences come from the "culture" or that they are "socially constructed."

The Myth of Women as "Victims".  In fact, modern feminism is only the most recent manifestation of the powerhouse female.  Feminism was propagated by power-driven women who simply claimed (without a shred of evidence) that all women are victims.  Tell that to the Last Empress of China, or Hillary Clinton, or Michelle Obama.  Or any of Obama's women commissars like Janet Napolitano.

The Silence of NOW.  The ACORN scandal isn't just about tax evasion and the bad behavior of a few ACORN staffers.  Rather, the videotapes that started it all captured several ACORN staffers' unflinching comfort with the growing crime of human trafficking and child prostitution.  The weeks since the story unfolded have witnessed a willingness within the women's advocacy community and Congress to turn a blind eye to human suffering in the cause of growing government.

Did someone mention ACORN?

Where Have All the Ladies Gone?  As our society abandons the conservative values that make women into ladies, women with grace and dignity have become an endangered species — especially on today's college campuses.  The kind of woman who inspired Tom Jones' song "She's a Lady" has become an antiquated figure from America's past.  Most popular songs about women today are more like "Youse a Ho" by Ludacris.

Left-wing women:  Stop impaling Palin.  Palin doesn't need to be rescued; she's capable of defending herself.  But the attacks on Palin by so-called feminists cannot be ignored.  Many of the same voices who claimed the right-wing was attacking Hillary Clinton just because she was a strong woman are now attacking Palin not for her beliefs, but for her very gender identity.

Feminists against Palin — shame on you.  Feminist anger against Sarah has exposed the fact that feminism is not about women's success and achievement.  If it were, feminists would have been bragging for years about self-made women who are truly remarkable achievers, such as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, or former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, or Sen. Elizabeth Dole, or even Margaret Thatcher.  Feminists never boast about these women because feminism's basic doctrine is victimology.  Feminism preaches that women can never succeed because they are the sorry victims of an oppressive patriarchy.

Who Defines Feminism?  A hive of feminist organizations are swarming around media outlets and telling America that Sarah Palin does not stand for women and does not support women's rights.  This hive of hornets is complemented by a long line of party-line Democrat women marching around America saying much the same thing.  Christina Hoff Sommers wrote a wonderful book several years ago entitled Who Stole Feminism?  Tammy Bruce, once the head of NOW in Los Angeles, has also exposed the moral and intellectual vacuity of self-described feminism.

The Return of the Equal Rights Amendment.  When Congress approved the Equal Rights Amendment in 1972, supporters said it would bring about huge changes in attitudes and practices, and they were right.  Women now mostly work outside the home, they run giant corporations, they serve in the military in combat zones, they occupy high offices in all three branches of government, and one may be the next president.  The amazing thing is that the amendment precipitated all these advances without ever being ratified.

Fatherless families, a dangerous Bill and a dilemma for David Cameron.  What is that strange and unfamiliar noise, a bit like the distant rumble of a dam breaking or tectonic plates on the move?  It is the almost forgotten sound of a civilisation fighting back.  For years we have watched helplessly the undermining of the traditional family, which has been relentlessly attacked by an alliance of feminists, gay rights activists, divorce lawyers and "cultural Marxists" who grasped that this was the surest way to destroy Western society.

1968 Policies and Election 2008.  Two 1960s policy "innovations" were especially destructive.  The Flemming Rule (1960) was named for Arthur Flemming, then head of the Department of Health and Human Services, who issued an administrative ruling that states could not deny eligibility for income assistance through the AFDC program on the grounds that a home was "unsuitable" because the woman's children were illegitimate.  In 1968, the Supreme Court's "Man-in-the-House" rule struck down the practice of states declaring a home unsuitable (i.e., an immoral environment) if there was a man in the house not married to the mother.  Thus, out-of-wedlock births and cohabitation were legitimized.

Denver diversity-training video said to 'hammer the white guy'.  The city of Denver is showing its employees a diversity training video that portrays a white man as a narrow-minded buffoon — triggering allegations of "institutional racism" against Anglos.  "Right now, their diversity program is racially motivated against white males," said Dennis Supple, a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning mechanic who has worked for the city 1½ years.

City Worker:  Denver Diversity Video Discriminates.  A diversity training video has drawn a complaint from a Denver city employee who claims its unfavorable portrayal of whites amounts to "institutional racism."  A city official said Tuesday [11/27/2007] it was suspending use of the video.

Have You Bashed a White Male Today?  [Scroll down] Here we are forty years later, and it seems to me that all we've really accomplished is an exchange of all of our old prejudices for a new one.  The demographic group that now gets it full on the chin at every turn, in every public sphere, is the lone, white male.  Christians, especially the Catholic Church, are also an approved target, but that topic is for another article.  So we haven't gotten any better as human beings.  We simply changed targets.

Feminism and the English Language:  Our language used to belong to all its speakers and readers and writers.  But in the 1970s and '80s, arrogant ideologues began recasting English into heavy artillery to defend the borders of the New Feminist state.  In consequence we have all got used to sentences where puffed-up words like "chairperson" and "humankind" strut and preen, where he-or-she's keep bashing into surrounding phrases like bumper cars and related deformities blossom like blisters; they are all markers of an epoch-making victory of propaganda over common sense.

Hillary Underrates Women.  To listen to Senator Hillary Clinton proposing gender pay equity legislation last week, one might reasonably conclude that she is paid only 77% of Senator Obama's $165,200 salary. … Mrs. Clinton tries to obscure the trend toward equal pay and the reality that men and women generally have equal pay for equal work now — if they have the same jobs, responsibilities, and skills. Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are paid identically, as are many other men and women with the same job.

A Complete Hillary Whitewash.  Feminism has been a very disgraced brand for decades.  The final nail was placed in the coffin when feminists tried so athletically to see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil with Bill Clinton's record of serial adultery, sexual harassment, and even a credible accusation of rape.  But now that Hillary Clinton has finally conceded to Barack Obama, the media elites have suddenly discovered the glorious and militant cause of women.

'Career women' empty nation's sperm banks.  Career women in Sydney are creating a nationwide sperm shortage as they race to have a family before turning 40.  With demand for sperm growing rapidly — particularly from single Sydney women — clinics are importing vials from the US on a monthly basis. ... The most surprising trend has been a 40 percent rise in the number of single women seeking sperm donors.  "These are women, aged from 35 to 40, who are single, attractive career women, who cannot find a man to have a baby with," he said.

The Editor says...
If, as the article says, these are "attractive career women", they should have no trouble finding a husband.  It's called a husband.  Say it with me.

AAUW's Fuzzy Math is an Insult to Working Women.  Equal Pay Day has become one of our annual rites of Spring.  And once again Hillary and her gal-pals were out in force, trying to convince us that women are undervalued and underpaid in the American workplace.  This year the gender victimologists came armed with a new report from the American Association of University Women, Behind the Pay Gap, which purports to show that one year after graduation, women are paid 80% of what men earn.

The Truth About the Pay Gap.  Equal Pay Day, observed this year on April 24, is named for something that, we are told, doesn't exist — equal pay for men and women. … Most if not all of the discrepancy can be traced to factors other than sexism.  When it comes to pay equity, we really have come a long way.

Gender Equality Gobbledygook:  One would think that the just-released 148-page United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) report, "The State of the World's Children 2007" — with its exclusive focus on gender equality — was produced by leftists and feminists.  Instead, it is the product of Ann M. Veneman, the Executive Director of UNICEF and a Bush appointee who promised to bring back a sane perspective on children's issues.  It is obvious at the outset, however, that the report merely re-packages the feminist agenda without even changing the tired old rhetoric.

Men Aren't Couch Potatoes, After All.  Did you hear about the latest Urban Legend to bite the dust?  Back in 1989 Arlie Hochschild wrote a book called The Second Shift.  This was Hochschild's conclusion:  Compared to men, "women work an extra month of 24-hour days a year."  Basically she was making the claim that while wives cook, clean, and sew after a long day at the office, His Royal Highness was chillin' in front of the TV set.

L.A. fire captain awarded $3.75 million.  In the latest bizarre court case involving the Los Angeles Fire Department, a jury has awarded $3.75 million to a male fire captain who said he was retaliated against for not making training exercises easier for women.

The girls on The View.  These are women who pride themselves on being independent and empowered when they dress like prostitutes (look at the view of cleavage on the View!).  These are the women who watch the View.  These are the women who support Hillary Rodham Clinton.  These are the women on the show who ask Senator Clinton questions like "Do you think being a mom will help you in the White House?" as they did on December 20.

This just in:  Feminists achieve their goal.
51% of Women Are Now Living Without Spouse.  For what experts say is probably the first time, more American women are living without a husband than with one, according to a New York Times analysis of census results.  In 2005, 51 percent of women said they were living without a spouse, up from 35 percent in 1950 and 49 percent in 2000.

[Don't be mislead by the numbers.  Many of these women live with men, but without the formality of marriage.]

Journalistic Malpractice in "Marriage is Dead" Report.  On Tuesday, January 16th, 2007, the American people awoke to startling and disturbing news:  for the first time ever, the majority of women in the country were living without a husband. ... [But] it's not true.  The entire story (based on the work of one ax-grinding, irresponsible, agenda-driven journalist for the New York Times) has been cooked up from willful, blatant and shameful distortions. Amazingly enough, none of the most respected and purportedly responsible media authorities have taken the trouble to call him on it.

At universities, little learned from 9/11.  The feminists at Harvard seek to remove every vestige of patriarchy in America, but they have said almost nothing about the complete dismissal of women's rights by radical Islam.  To do so would be to attack Islamic culture, and according to multiculturalism, every culture is equal and none is evil.

As NOW holds its annual convention, is feminism still relevant?  One panel discussion speculated that some women want to avoid the feminist stereotype of bra-burning man-haters, or could be unfamiliar with current women's issues.  Other women, such as National Review's Washington editor Kate O'Beirne, have argued that most women don't want the things feminists are fighting for.  In her recent book, … O'Beirne argued that the feminist movement not only led to the breakdown of the traditional family, but also degraded motherhood, weakened the military and much more.

Moms make lousy dads.  One of the more fatuous beliefs that has been foisted off by self-proclaimed feminists and other politically correct lamebrains is that children don't really need fathers.

Fatherless On Father's Day.  Less than 50 years ago 8% of children were born out of wedlock.  Today that number is more than 40%.  On Father's Day children who have a father at home have reason to be grateful.  Statistically, those who do not are destined to have a much harder life.  On this Father's Day only a small percentage of families are honoring a father.  The children born out of wedlock never had a father in the home.  Other children's fathers have left never to return, or only see them occasionally.  Still other children are denied contact with their fathers by their mothers or the courts.

Getting theirs:  In the popular culture of America today, Ms. Levy argues, female chauvinist pigs are women who promote the sexual objectification of other women, and of themselves.  But, unlike their truck-driving male counterparts, they believe that in doing so they are emancipating women from the patriarchal male agenda of the past.

Raising boys that feminists will hate:  Part two.  Make no mistake about it:  misandry (man hatred) is now the dominating motif of postmodernism.

The superstition of equality.  The Myth of course, is that men and women have identical aptitudes for math and science, and the gender disparities in these fields reflect discrimination.  The modern superstition is that if the government could just have enough enforcement power in enough different areas, we could wipe out the differences in male and female participation in math and hard sciences.

Women's Work Is Never Done.  International Women's Day began as a communist holiday to liberate women to do the work of a man.  A popular 1932 Soviet poster, depicting women escaping the drudgery of the home, declared, "Down with the oppression and the narrowmindedness of household work!"  (Then it was on to cement-mixing and road-building.)  When the Iron Curtain collapsed in 1989, the holiday was transformed in many countries into a kind of Valentine's Day, where gents were expected to bring gifts and flowers to the ladies.

Brainwashing the Children:  A Global Effort.  Emma Goldman (often called "Red Emma") gave a speech in San Francisco during the suffragette movement.  A contemporary of Chesterton, she said that if men were oppressing women, women were to blame because of the way they raised their sons.  Her speech didn't go over well, but her words still apply today.  Sons are no longer raised by their mothers to be men, but some sissified hybrid that God didn't create or intend.  Their individuality and ruggedness has been drummed or drugged out of them by the socialists in Washington, DC.

The feminist complaint festival:  There's one problem with Equal Pay Day — the premise is bogus.  Department of Labor data confirms that the median wage of a full-time working woman is three-quarters of that of a full-time working man, but like too many statistics, this fact ignores more than it reveals.  This data doesn't account for relevant factors such as occupation, experience and educational attainment.  Feminists may not like it, but the evidence shows that women's choices — not discrimination — cause wage gap.

Betty Friedan's passing:  Orthodox feminism's secondary solution, to make men more involved in children's lives, has been stymied by its simultaneous commitment to divorce, unwed parenting, and female sexual "autonomy" as signs of social progress.  If men aren't in the home, they can hardly do any of the housework, can they?

Don't give us government childcare for Mother's Day.  What's the perfect Mother's Day gift?  A bouquet of tulips?  Jewelry?  Breakfast in bed?  The National Organization for Women has something a little more expensive in mind — universal childcare.

Feminism isn't dead, but a new book wounds it badly.  Some women protest, "I'm a feminist, just not a radical feminist."  Kate O'Beirne is impatient with such qualifications.  She is not any kind of feminist, and when you finish her sparkling new book "Women Who Make the World Worse," you won't be one either.

Debunking militant feminist orthodoxy:  Kate O'Beirne's "Women Who Make the World Worse" is one of the boldest books challenging the orthodoxy of political correctness to be released in years.  Above all, it documents the real damage inflicted on our culture by radical feminism and the women who lead that destructive movement.

Feminists Abuse Domestic Violence Laws.  Radical feminists who would be the recipients of the act's awesome bureaucratic and money power are very selective about the kinds of violence they will target in 10 to 20 foreign countries.  They have no interest in speaking up for the hundreds of thousands of unborn girls in China and India who are victims of sex-selection abortions.

Why I don't take feminists seriously:  Generally speaking, feminists get together with other feminists because it is less expensive than seeing a therapist.  Feminists are usually drawn together by an inability to deal with men.  When they get together, whether in a small group or a large one, criticism of males tends to dominate the discourse.

Why I don't take feminists seriously, part II.  Feminists are less concerned with women's rights than they are with their own right to have an abortion.  George Bush has done more for women's rights than any president in modern history.  But feminists hate him because he is opposed to abortion rights.  Bill Clinton sexually harassed more women than any president in American history.  But that's okay.  He supports abortion rights so feminists love him.  If he were ever convicted of rape, feminists would still love him because he supports abortion rights.

Part III wasn't that interesting, but then he wrote ...
Why I don't take feminists seriously, Part IV.  Feminists would rather solve a problem by changing "society" than by changing their own behavior. ... Sociology professors often pursue the notion that beauty is not objective but "socially constructed" by showing their students medieval paintings of nude, pudgy women.  The argument is that fat used to be considered attractive.  Therefore, it can be that way again with enough social engineering.

Why I don't take feminists seriously, Part V.  The four most common words a feminist uses are "I," "me," "my," and "mine."  I really get tired of hearing these four words from feminists.  "I feel this" or "I feel that."  "Keep your laws off MY body."  "It's MY body, MY choice."  Feminists are the only people in society who actually use these four words more in adulthood than they did when they were two years old.

Why I don't take feminists seriously, Part VI.  Feminists are the biggest censors on college campuses today. … And they are always driven to censor those who do not take them seriously — just to punish them for the crime of not taking them seriously.

Why boys should be allowed to play with toy guns:  Playing with toy weapons helps the development of young boys, according to new Government advice to nurseries and playgroups.  Staff have been told they must resist their "natural instinct" to stop boys using pretend weapons such as guns or light sabres in games with other toddlers.

Why Do Women Outnumber Men in College?  The highpoint of gender imbalance in college attendance was reached in 1947, after the return of men from World War II then eligible for educational subsidies through the GI bills, when undergraduate men outnumbered women 2.3 to 1.  Women's relative numbers in college have increased ever since the 1950s, with a pause when many men went to college to avoid serving in the Vietnam War.

Failing women of the Third World.  The plight of Islamic women abused in the name of Allah in the Middle East and in Europe requires aggressive rebuke from women in the free world, but feminists in the West, and particularly in the United States, are struck dumb in an academic ghetto, stuck with a parochial approach to women's studies and obsessed with their personal "body rights" and their sexuality.

Women's minister wants men purged from national anthem.  In a move that spells trouble for half of Europe's national anthems, Austria's Minister for Women's Affairs has demanded wholesale changes to her country's paean to purge it of sexist references.  Mentions of the "fatherland", "great sons" and "brotherly choruses" should be replaced by gender-neutral terms such as "homeland" and "joyful chorus", said Maria Rauch-Kallat, whose quest stands a fair chance of success.

Strong marriages, the Biblical way.  The Bible clearly shows the error both of feminists who claim no differences between men and women, and of sexual segregationists who argue that women are to be concerned only with marriage and motherhood.

Frequently Asked Questions about Women in Combat:  Recent news reports about the unprecedented roles of female soldiers serving in Iraq have generated many inquiries about the issue of women in land combat.  Should female soldiers be assigned to units that engage in direct ground combat, and if not, why not?

Men are too rough to train with, Army tells women.  The [British] Army is abandoning mixed-sex training units because too many female recruits are getting injured trying to keep up with their male counterparts. … "Men are stronger and more robust and it's silly to pretend otherwise."

Five Lies the Church Tells Women:  I'm not saying all churches say all these things, but there are certain pockets of Christianity where these lies are circulated.

All dolled up and no place to go.  Tragically, it seems that the place we carefully chose to help teach our daughters important life lessons about sacrifice, selflessness and friendship now promotes the "me first" mantra of selfish feminism.  The [American Girl doll] company has decided to donate money from the sale of its "I Can" bracelets to Girls Inc., a group that promotes an agenda that sounds as if it was ripped from the pages of Planned Parenthood.

Feminism's devolution from hoaxers to whores.  Men haven't turned away from smart, successful women because they're smart and successful.  More likely they've turned away because the feminist movement that encouraged women to be smart and successful also encouraged them to be hostile and demeaning to men.

Ladies Restrooms:  Who is That Male-Bodied Woman In the Next Stall?  The New York Association of Gender Rights Advocacy has won a victory over restroom use by individuals who believe they are a member of the opposite sex.

 Editor's Note:   Only a few decades ago, such a person would have been confined to a mental institution for everyone's benefit.

Hissy fits and real progress:  Susan Estrich is playing a dog-eared victim card and in doing so reveals herself as well behind her curves.  Three-fourths of American women between 25 to 34 are in the workforce, up from half in 1975.  A report by the World Future Society finds that Generation Xers and their younger counterparts in the millennial generation toil in a workplace that is all but "gender-blind."  Fully 57 percent of American college students are women.

So much for compliments.  America is supposed to be a land of self-reliant, hardy individualists who cherish their freedom.  But sexual harassment law treats women as so weak and vulnerable that not only can they not handle rude and boorish insults, they can't even handle gallant compliments.

One thing leads to another:
Is there a right to have a baby?  Reproductive freedom is usually a code-word for abortion on demand.  But the right to terminate a pregnancy is only the right to say "no" to having a baby.  Full reproductive freedom would include the right to pregnancy on demand, analogous to abortion on demand.  A California case in which a lesbian couple is suing an infertility clinic suggests we may be closer than we think to establishing a right to have a baby.  And far from being an advance for women's liberty, this development would be a disaster for everyone's freedom.

Real Women's Liberation:  It's happening in Afghanistan, and U.S. feminists don't care.

Lesbians turn "gayelle".  A group of lesbians who are unhappy with the title have launched a world-wide movement to change the name of their sexuality to "gayelle".  Websites devoted to the change are springing up, with the motivation said to be a "persistent distaste for the word lesbian."

The Editor says...
You can put a tuxedo on a pig, but it's still a pig.

Making the Muslims love us.  Feminists in the United States, eager to blame fundamentalist Christians for everything, are reluctant to criticize fundamentalist Muslims for anything.  But a cursory scan of the Internet finds several sites beginning to expose the way Muslim men both here and abroad get a politically correct pass in the name of multicultural tolerance.  When all cultures are considered equal, it's difficult to criticize culturally protected traditions, even if those traditions brutalize women.

No Thanks, Uncle Sam.  If feminists truly cared about women succeeding rather than constructing a social utopia, they would herald individual women who have genuine, free-market success stories to tell.  These women are not running to government for affirmative-action privilege because they are too busy running companies.

The feminization of society:  As a result of the repudiation of Judeo-Christian values, we are witnessing the ascendance of the feminine in Western society.

Amnesty International Promotes Violence By Women.  Congress is playing a fatal game with the lives of half of American citizens by pretending that violence is purely a matter of sex.  During a 10-day period, Saint Louis has recently seen two brutal murders of husbands on one week, and a nearly-successful one. …There was no place for these men to seek assistance because there are no shelters for men in Saint Louis.

Biased VAWA Discriminates Against Men.  The federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is up for reauthorization in 2005.  VAWA funds billions of taxpayer dollars to combat violence against women, principally domestic violence (DV).  The definition of DV touted by victim advocates runs the gamut from jokes and insults to murder, with "power and control" being the overriding characteristic of the man's behavior towards the woman.  Real violence is rarely at issue.

VAWA Re-authorized.  On Thursday, January 5, 2006, President Bush signed into law a five-year, $3.9 billion extension of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), originally enacted in 1994 under President Clinton.  VAWA is a particularly pernicious piece of pork-barrel legislation that puts billions of dollars of taxpayer funds, and the imprimatur of the federal government, in the service of the radical feminist ideology that all men and boys are potential abusers who must be re-educated according to the dictates of the nation's left-leaning "domestic violence" industry.

Double Standards:  Lt. Kara Hultgreen was killed in October 1994, while trying to land her F-14 Tomcat fighter plane.  [Another] woman pilot, Lt. Carey Lohrenz, was dismissed from further aviation training after her flying performance was described by instructors as "unsafe, undisciplined, and unpredictable."  The CMR's report is filled with factual data on how the Navy leaned over backwards to accommodate the obvious shortcomings of women trainees.

The Demoralization of the Military.  Of the many painful consequences brought on by the surrender to political correctness, the demoralization of the United States military is surely among the saddest. … The fear of this type of disruption is one of the reasons military leaders fought so hard, in 1992, against approving openly acknowledged homosexuals.  But what the "gay" lobby lost, the feminists won.  And we may all pay dearly for it some day.

The Feminist Movement Can Destroy Women, Family, Morality and Godliness.  God presents Himself in Scripture as male.  He wants us to know Him in this way.  He sent His Son (not daughter) to die for us.  The intent of the Feminists is obvious.  They wish first to destroy gender difference in our human relations and then to feminize the very nature of how God presents Himself to our sense.

Episcopal Church Officially Promotes Idol Worship.  "Women's Eucharist" calls for worship of pagan deities specifically condemned in Scripture.

See more comments about this at Midwest Conservative Journal.

The grand fallacy.  It is hardly surprising that women work part-time more often than men, drop out of the labor force more often than men, specialize in a different mix of jobs, and major in a different mix of subjects in college and postgraduate education.  Seldom are the data sufficiently detailed to permit comparisons of women and men who are the same on all the variables that matter.  But the more detailed the data, the higher is a woman's income relative to that of a comparable man, sometimes surpassing that of men.

The mommy party's tea party:  Hillary gets to speak, after all, [at the Democratic Convention] but only to introduce Bill.  He basks in applause, she glows.  Is this the feminist dream, or what?  The Democrats are the party of the radical feminists but their women are sidelined together at the convention in Boston like a Beacon Hill tea for the ladies auxiliary.  Hillary, the most prominent of all, is relegated to "wife of," standing by her man.

Same-sex marriage and the disposal of fatherhood:  Single motherhood, despite the heart-warming stories of virtuous single moms, is a predictor for children at higher risk for teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, academic underachievement, drug use and juvenile delinquency.

Feminist dream of military equality becomes nightmare in Iraq.  The picture of female U.S. Army Pfc. Lynndie R. England holding a leash and collar around the neck of a prone and naked Iraqi male prisoner, like a dog, is a worldwide public relations disaster.

Good news, bad news about stay-at-home moms.  When Time magazine runs a cover story called "The Case for Staying Home," and Reuters reports that housework is good for women because it can help prevent ovarian cancer, you know the feminists are on the run.  Stay-at-home moms are coming back in style.

Day Dreamin' Anti-Dude Dames:  Because I am a man, my opinion regarding the role of women in society no longer counts.  Not because I'm not properly briefed regarding women's issues, but because I am a Christian, conservative, white male.  Yes sir, I'm the new millennium's latest whipping boy … the receptacle of all society's ills … the pariah of postmodernism … the spawn of all societal sewage.  At least according to the feministas.

Feminism on film:  Panning pompous propaganda.  Another feminist propaganda movie hit the theaters during the Christmas season, proving again that the feminists are an unhappy bunch whose lifestyle leads to loneliness.

Feminism mugged by reality:  The feminist revolution that swept the United States in the 1970s promoted the dream of a land in which at least half of all corporate officers, Fortune 500 CEOs, partners in law firms and doctors would be women.  But a funny thing happened on the way to achieving that promise.  Feminism was mugged by the reality that most women don't seek those goals.

Militant Feminism:  "Freedom for women cannot be without the abolition of marriage," wrote Sheila Craven, feminist author.  This incredible statement was made by the National Organization for Women in 1988:  "The simple fact is, every woman must be willing to be recognized as a lesbian to be fully feminine.

The Feminists Movement's Grand Deception:  The Guide To Feminist Organizations * details the political agenda and funding support for the nation's top 35 feminist organizations.  Author Kimberly Schuld argues that most American women find these groups irrelevant to their concerns.

No man's land:  Even some liberals are unsettled by the contents of [Louise] Sloan's book.  A jaunty part-memoir, Knock Yourself Up — "a tell-all guide to becoming a single mom" — is provocatively subtitled, No Man? No Problem!  Alongside her own experiences, she has interlaced the stories of more than 50 single mothers — most straight, all "the new breed of single moms".

"Feminist Lies" Blamed for Fewer Guys on Campus:  A men's issues columnist says rampant anti-male feminism has made colleges a place where many males feel unwanted and unwelcome.

All-Female Organizations Demand Reform of All-Male Club:  In case you have missed it, the National Council of Women's Organizations, which its website says is composed of "more than one hundred women's organizations representing more than 6 million members," is trying to force the Augusta National Golf Club, sponsor of the Masters Golf Tournament, to "change its all-men's membership."

Criminalizing Masculinity:  If you are a heterosexual male of any race, tear yourself away from the war on terrorism and let Howard S. Schwartz inform you of your real enemy.  His book, "The Revolt of the Primitive:  An Inquiry into the Roots of Political Correctness," has just been released by Praeger Publishers in Westport, Ct.  The book is a bombshell.  Schwartz, a professor of organizational behavior, shows that feminism has metamorphosed from demands for gender equality into gender warfare against masculinity.

Moms Can Be Deadbeats Too:  Single dads are sick and tired of being labeled "deadbeats" when it comes to paying child support.  And data suggest they have good reason to be upset.  The percentage of "deadbeat" moms is actually higher than that of dads who won't pay, even though mothers are more consistently awarded custody of children by the courts.

No Thanks, Uncle Sam:  Until now, the framework for discussing women in the workplace has been set by feminists – activists who will not be silent until 51 percent of every job classification is filled by women.  These same radicals are willing to wave aside the achievements of the individual for the collectivist utopia of group success.

G.I. Joe is No Great American Hero, Group Says:  The Lion & Lamb Project says military action figures are "aggressive toys."  However, a Hasbro spokesperson says, "G.I. Joe has been a part of our culture for nearly 40 years and represents core American values – patriotism, honor and bravery."

The Feminine Mistake:  The argument in favor of "equal pay for equal work" rests on a concept of labor that was overturned in the 1870's.  It assumes that there is such a thing as concrete human labor, a physical entity that in some way can be measured.  Value is in some way linked to labor, and pay should reflect value.  This was the economic premise of virtually all economists until the advent of modern economics; Karl Marx was the last major economist to hold the labor theory of value.  Modern economics rests on the concept that value is linked to usefulness; the value of labor depends on the value of labor's output.  The distinction between the two concepts of value is crucial.

The Liberation of Women:  Thoughts on Reading Some Old Cookbooks.  The nineteenth century housewife had to be a Jill of all trades.  The industrial revolution with its increased specialization and division of labor barely ruffled the surface of traditional housekeeping practices.  The 1859 housewife purchased a few more household items than her grandmother could have in 1832.  But she still had to kill her own fowl, cut up the family's meat, salt it, smoke it, or otherwise cure it and keep it safe from bugs and animals.

Feminist Censorship:  The rhetoric that promotes injustice is always dangerous and self-defeating, and we should have no more tolerance for reverse sexism than for sexism itself.

Judge Halts an Army Policy on Promotion:  A federal judge struck down the Army's equal-opportunity promotion process yesterday [3/4/2002], saying the policy gives undue preference to women and minorities at the expense of white, male officers.  The Army's written direction to promotion boards that urges them to consider the "past personal or institutional discrimination" faced by women and minorities is unconstitutional because the policy does not order the board also to consider possible discrimination against white men, the judge found.

Subjecting Boys to Feminist Propaganda and Reprograming Them Through Gender Sensitivity:  Beginning in 1995, the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute began to expose this stealth feminist holiday that breeds victimology in girls and left boys behind year after year.

Worsening Job Prospects for White Males:  White males are suffering from long-term deterioration in lifetime income growth and job security, according to a study, "Divergent Paths," just released by the Russell Sage Foundation.

Feminizing the Black Beret:  The military under Clinton had aggressively promoted the "politically correct" belief system, which says that despite the obvious physical and emotional differences, men and women are the same.

Feminist Movement Exploits Sports to Advance Agenda:  "Gender equity" groups and think tanks target professional and collegiate athletics.
