  • Female Game Developer Fired For Calling Other Women "Pretty"

    One of the largest video game industry conferences currently taking place in Poland has become subject to a controversy after its social media manager—and game developer—made a gaffe on Twitter. Her crime? Using the word “pretty” to describe other women. Her innocuous tweet was met with immediate fury from transgender game developers like No Man’s Sky’s Innes McKendrick, who assumed Wiznerowicz’s gender, and demanded that she “shut the hell up and listens to them.”

    The contrast couldn’t be more telling. Last November, voters elected a Hemingway man as president. Hemingway, as in Ernest. You know, the great 20th Century writer who glorified masculinity: big game hunting, deep-sea fishing, bullfighting, war. Testosterone comes standard with males, and Hemingway never apologized for it. Why should he have? That’s like saying sorry for having two feet. Up north, Canadians elected a party to govern -- the Liberals -- led by a Trump antithesis. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is everything that Trump isn’t -- oh, and proud of it. He declares himself a feminist. Says he’s raising his...

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor told college students in New York City that she sometimes feels “great turmoil” inside when she is hearing arguments on the bench, but works hard to keep her emotions and personal biases in check. […] “You can’t do human activity — and judging is a human activity — without having human emotions,” she told the crowd at the LeFrak Concert Hall. “The sense of how you deal with it is to acknowledge it. I look at it, examine it, try to figure out the effect it’s having, and then try to adjust my behavior...

    Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn't highlighted her career history of fighting for women's rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I'm a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what's my story. And it suddenly dawned on...

    High school football games are typically considered to be good entertainment for the entire family. Maybe an older sibling is playing, so parents come with their younger children to watch them play and have fun all together. So given that high school football games are typically family events, it’s not surprising that parents were outraged when they saw what these cheerleaders were wearing. A video uploaded to FlyHeight shows cheerleaders performing in outfits that appear to be closer to lingerie than to cheerleading uniforms. Each cheerleader, believed to be from a high school in Miami, holds a bag and a...

    Five years ago at the Democratic National Convention, I went to a Planned Parenthood rally, where one speaker was TV actress Lisa Edelstein. “Do not go to the polls alone,” she told us. “Drag somebody, if she’s a woman especially, because those women are going to vote for Obama—if they know what’s good for them.” Edelstein is hardly the only Hollywood figure to make the case that liberal policies are crucial to women’s happiness and welfare. Yet, with the media still reeling from the revelations about powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s behavior toward women, it’s time to examine both the...

    Nobody displays it more vividly than the Hollywood pantheon.Approximately 15 years ago, I had a really sweet and cushy job. The job was easy. The hours very reasonable. The pay comfortable six figures. And, for people who did not know what the work environment was like, the job actually was quite prestigious. People begged me to help them get interviews there, to meet the power behind the throne, even just for phone access — just, please, the phone number. The problem was that I had to get out of there. The environment of the workplace was amazingly hostile to women....

    WHEN young Sydney mother Maddie asked her closed Facebook group of 26,186 mothers for some tasty alternatives to sandwiches for her husband’s lunches, she wasn’t expecting the backlash. ... You would think she’d asked for a hemlock recipe, judging by the torrent of scolding which erupted. She was nothing but a “slave” and a “1950s housewife”. She was “weird” and no one in their right mind or a “pink fit” would do something so demeaning as make their husband lunch. Let alone snacks. “Your husband is a grown up and you’re not his mother”, wrote one member of the North...

    And they celebrate President Trump’s decision to roll back the contraception mandate. If we believe the social elites, it’s truly a trying time to be a woman in America. Just last November, millions of us were coerced by our own deeply embedded (very deeply, in my case) loathing of our womanhood to vote against Hillary Clinton. And now, just as we’ve really started getting our voices back — albeit through the trope of silent protests based on a television show not exactly representative of American society — that nefarious squad in the White House has turned the screw and ended...

    Critics of this column will quickly point out the sheer amount of destruction caused by Stephen Paddock would not have been possible had Paddock not had access to the cadre of high-powered, fast-shooting weaponry he did. They are undeniably correct. Some terrorism is beyond the scope of individual defense. But is this a reason to trash the Second Amendment? Of course not. Progressives have never, ever answered one simple question when it comes to the notion of gun control or gun bans, to wit: How do you keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and madmen? Whatever sick motivation...

    The yogurt manufacturer Dannon has severed ties with Cam Newton, less than a day after he directed a sexist quip at Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue. “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes. It’s funny,” Newton said after Rodrigue asked a question about Panthers receiver Devin Funchess’s physical approach on Sunday in New England. “We are shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton towards Jourdan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women,” Dannon said in a statement. “It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in...

    The Las Vegas massacre has been weighing heavily on the hearts and minds of everyone, including celebrities. In the immediate wake of the tragedy, we saw stars calling for better gun control laws, and now, a day later, we’re seeing many famous women share a powerful quote attributed to — but actually not originated by — Gloria Steinem, which compares gun control and abortion, as the House voted on legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks. Gloria Steinem didn’t say that guns vs. abortion quote that’s gone viral. (Photo: Getty Images) Gisele Bündchen, Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss, Kelly Rowland, Elisabeth Moss,...

  • ‘Faux’ Male Feminists Draw Ire in Hollywood

    In the post, Ms. Cole, a film producer, said that Mr. Whedon “hid multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends” during their 16-year marriage. His explanation for why he had so many female friends, she said, was that “his mother raised him as a feminist.” Moreover, Ms. Cole called out his “hypocrisy” for “preaching feminist ideals” while using their marriage as a “shield” to commit adultery. In essence, she branded Mr. Whedon, the director of the coming “Justice League” superhero film, a fake male feminist. It’s a label that appears to be gaining cultural currency, especially in the...

    Our friends over at Campus Reform and Network of enlightened Women released a video on Friday featuring college students giving their candid opinion about how they feel about conservative women. The video was filmed at George Washington University. Spoiler alert: people did not have the kindest thoughts. While some people seemed to empathize with the plight of conservative women on campus, saying that they basically were forced into silence, others said that they viewed conservative women as "anti-women" and "not educated." Another said that she felt as though women had to be liberal, as there's still not equality in the...

    Oppressor or liberator? Feminist in a silk robe, or pipe-smoking exploiter? Opinions were flying a day after Hugh Hefner's death over just what he did — and didn't do — for women. On one side, there were those who saw Hefner's dressing women in bunny costumes with cottontails on their rears, or displaying them nude in his magazine with a staple in their navels, as simple subjugation of females, no matter how slick and smooth the packaging. On the other were those who felt the Playboy founder was actually at the forefront of the sexual revolution, bringing sexuality into the...

    Margaret Wente, one of the country’s best columnists, has written an interesting piece on the changing roles of men and women. It’s all about the fact that women are increasingly more successful — better educated, more ambitious, more focused – than men. “Women are flourishing in this new world, but many men aren’t. Men have always defined themselves as providers — it’s the main source of their identity. What happens when they aren’t needed as providers any more? What happens when their sense of purpose is lost? The answer is, they become unmoored. They stop being adults” She quotes from...

    Is there no end to Hillary Clinton's bitterness over losing the presidential election? I get it, though. I mean, if I just knew I was going to win an election and I didn't, I might be bitter as well. However, when you couple the pure arrogance of just knowing you're going to be president with the narcissism of thinking absolutely nothing about your loss is your fault, you get quite a recipe for just why she lost in the first place. Hillary is continuing her attacks on her opponents, this time focusing on female Trump supporters. Hillary Clinton spoke about...

    The NY Times, the paper that ignored the crimes against humanity committed by Stalin as they were happening, is now looking to provide the same treatment retroactively to Mao Zedong. In its ongoing “Red Century” series, the Times published a piece yesterday arguing that Mao represented a great leap forward for women: “The Communists did many terrible things,” my grandmother always says at the end of her reminiscences. “But they made women’s lives much better.”That often-repeated dictum sums up the popular perception of Mao Zedong’s legacy regarding women in China. As every Chinese schoolchild learns in history class, the...
