  • Women’s Marchers Doing Away With ‘Pussy Hats’ for Being Racist, Transphobic

    Members of the Women's March movement are no longer grabbing their trademark pink "pussy hats" out of concern they might be offensive to minorities and transgender women. Following Donald Trump's inauguration, marchers donned pink cat ears, a mocking reference to the president's hot mic comments saying that he enjoyed grabbing women by the "pussy." But the Detroit Free Press reports that women activists in Michigan and elsewhere are making a conscious effort to move away from the hat out of fear that it "excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don't have typical female genitalia...
  • Iran's female protesters show how vacuous American feminists are

    Iranian men and women have been actively and vocally speaking out against their oppressive regime for the last few days. The women, in particular, have provided a sight to behold: Many are removing their hijabs, protesting the Iranian dress code, and literally shouting against Khamenei in the streets. ... Still, the overwhelming progressive response to these courageous women has been strange, if not telling. Hardly any self-proclaimed feminists have cheered on the Iranian women who are so boldly speaking out against a dictatorship that would rather see them dead than sans hijab. Conservatives and liberals alike are well aware the...

    The Women’s March is facing intense pressure to come out in support of Iranian women protesting the fundamentalist Islamic regime. Women have become symbolic leaders of the protests, which are entering their sixth day, by removing their hijab in defiance of laws mandating they cover their faces and hair. One image that has gone viral shows a young woman standing above a crowd, waving her jettisoned white hijab like a flag. The death toll from the anti-government protests rose to 21 overnight, and at least 450 people have been arrested. The Women’s March is busy rolling out its anniversary protest...
  • Democrat Rep.Steve Cohen, a Failed Feminist Prop

    Meanwhile, motor mouth Steve Cohen sent to the front of the battle-lines, has already failed at making Barron what the feminist movement made of him: a prop Feminists target little boys even before their birth in wanton abortion; have for decades targeted little boys from kindergarten age onward, and, shamefully, are uninterrupted in doing so. ‘Feminism’ leaves the devious impression that it stands for the protection of women and children which couldn’t possibly be more wrong. The most radical members of the modern feminist movement are men who identify as “feminists”, who should have their pictures posted to Facebook for...

    Women are more likely to have been sexually assaulted by the age of 44 if they didn’t go to college, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. The study, spearheaded by sociology professor and researcher William Axinn, found that the risk of “experiencing forced intercourse” is more than 2.5 times greater for women who’ve attended little or no college. After more than six years’ intense focus on a purported campus rape crisis, Axinn’s study exposes the Obama administration’s Title IX regime for the elitist and politically-motivated overcorrection it was. Axinn and his team analyzed data from the...
  • Merriam-Webster names 'feminism' 2017 Word of the Year

    UPI ^ | December 12. 2017
    "Feminism," a top lookup for 2017, was named Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year Tuesday. News reports have kept the word in top searches the past few years, but the dictionary said it was looked up 70 percent more this year than last. The official definition classifies the word as the "theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" and "organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests." Use of the word spiked this year, due in part to events like the Women's March in Washington, D.C., and similar marches worldwide. The word itself became the subject...

    If you’re not up to date with the politically correct lingo, you should know that the concept of protected classes was created by leftists and it’s pretty much similar with the notion of identity politics. Basically, a protected class, whether we’re talking about minorities (blacks, Hispanics, “people of color”) or women/transgenders/gays/lesbians/whatever sexual so-called oppressed minority by the “patriarchy” (it all relates to Marx’s class war with a twist, now it’s a gender/sex/ethnicity war but the scope is the same, divide and conquer) has immunity/protection from  “hate crime laws” which are destroying conservative movements on the Internet (Facebook, YouTube are cracking...

    After the royal engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle announced she wouldn’t be returning to her job as an actress on the hit TV show “Suits.” “I don’t see it as giving anything up,” Markle told BBC’s Mishal Husain in an interview. “I see it as a change. It’s a new chapter.”But that didn’t stop Jill Filipovic, author of “The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness,” from calling that decision problematic. “[I]t’s so disappointing to see that she will be giving up her acting career after she weds,” Filipovic wrote in CNN, adding: In dozens of write-ups about the Markle-Windsor...

    Too much baggage. They think that Warren can win, she looks foolish and she's looney looking. Also these sexual harassment stories, some of them like Moore, Lauer could be witchhunts. I don't think America is in the mood for feminists right now.

    Fewer Millennials and youth in Generation Z are moving out of their parents’ homes than in recent previous generations. For the first time in the modern era, more 18- to 34-year olds live with their parents than in any other type of arrangement. That percentage reached its lowest point 45 years ago. In 1960, 62 percent of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, and only one-in-five were living with their parents. How did this happen? The younger generations are used to their parents providing them with iPhones and cars. They’re...

Emily Lindin âś” @EmilyLindin First, false allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic.

    RUSH: Okay. I just have one more thing here before we swerve back into the sexual harassment story. And I have to tell you, folks, there’s a part of this that is beginning to make me nervous, as an umbrella thing, not specifically. I’m just spotting a trend, and I know you have too. I’m sure I’m not the only person in this crowd. But you know, this business of sexual abuse is quickly approaching the same dynamics as racism in our culture. And just as racism is a horrible thing to be accused of, and depending on how it’s...

    About half the respondents in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll suspect that President Donald Trump broke the law during the presidential campaign, and just 3 in 10 Americans surveyed think that alleged wrongdoing ends with those who were charged this week by the special counsel. The poll finds substantial support for the investigation, with 58 percent approving of how special counsel Robert Mueller is handling it, and more — 68 percent — approving of the filing of federal charges against Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and one of his associates.

    Donna Karan is still kicking herself. Almost two weeks ago, in a speech that could’ve been straight out of the Jihadist’s Guide to the Hijab, Karan gave a bizarre defense of her good friend, Harvey Weinstein. In between grinning broadly like the Cheshire Cat on Ritalin, the designer rambled on about how women could be asking for sexual harassment and groping because of how they dress. “How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?” she wondered....

    I am in politics because every day, I get to work to make the world a little better—for my kids, and for yours. I’m proud of the dedicated work our team is doing to make Canada more open, more inclusive, more just—and gender equal. But some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie—to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.

    The Office for National Statistics in the United Kingdom has proposed that citizens should not be required to mention their gender in the next census so that transgender and other non-binary people do not feel discriminated against. The country is scheduled to hold the next national survey, which takes place every 10 years, in 2021, and if the ONS has its way, the citizens would be allowed to choose not to state their sex, The Times reports. The choice of male or female is "considered to be irrelevant, unacceptable and intrusive, particularly to trans participants, due to asking about sex...

    FULL TITLE: Former Seattle Seahawks player says women are 'incapable of knowing football' and should stop trying to 'move into male spaces' Former Seattle Seahawks player John Moffitt said in a Facebook post on Sunday that women are 'incapable' of understanding football. In the post, the former offensive lineman, who retired from the NFL four years ago, also said women were 'moving into male spaces and demanding respect'. The comment comes five days after Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was criticized for saying he thought it was 'funny' that a female reporter was asking questions about wide receiver routes on...

    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...
