    When TIME magazine recently banned the word Feminism because of its overuse, a deluge of libfems pounded the editor so roundly that he/she took down the word from the no go list. This is the topic of the great blog piece by Kevin Jackson, an astute observer-writer of the American cultural scene. (1) “A lot of us just don’t want to be associated with a supposed movement that has no unifying theme except being ANTI-MAN!” says one commenter. The libfems may finally be getting the notion that being anti-man represents the basic discomfort rabid feminists have with their own personhood....

    The pro-abortion fanatics from the activist group Femen are at it again. This time they took to St. Peters Square at the Vatican to make their views known and grab attention. Not only did they bare their breasts at the home of the Catholic Church, they simulated anal sex using crucifixes. Authorities quickly arrested them. Femen, the womens rights group known for topless protests, took their act to a new level of provocation on Friday with an explicitly sexually suggestive demonstration in front of the Vatican. In what they described as a protest over Pope Franciss upcoming visit to...

    Matt Taylor, who's a great scientist and seems to also be a pretty cool dude, gave a teary, heartfelt apology for his choice of attire on the day of Rosetta's probe landing. "I made a big mistake, and I offended many people," Taylor said at Friday's media briefing, his voice trembling, "and I'm very sorry about this." With that, the briefing moved onto the science (as it should -- Philae's days are numbered, and we want to find out as much as we can from the little probe that could). Taylor seemed to have trouble speaking for a few minutes,...

    Whether liberals would like to admit it or not; 2014 was a historic moment for women, especially Republican women. Besides it being a wave election, Republicans elected the first female senators from Iowa and West Virginia, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and the first black Republican woman–Mia Love–in Utah. Yet, these were Republican women; they’re a horrid subset of the human species beholden to their patriarchal masters according to feminists. Well, it all comes down to abortion–again–and this super-secret conspiracy to make life for American women–and women around the world–miserable (via the Guardian) [emphasis mine]: In a way, female...

But she could not have been more wrong about what’s causing these rates. Citing no supporting evidence, she claims that “abortion care, no less than contraception, is an essential measure to prevent the heartbreak of infant mortality, and to prevent another tragedy as well — maternal death.” terryoneill3It is certainly true that killing all children before they are born through abortifacient contraceptives and abortion...

This weekend, Marcie Bianco wrote that the birth control market iswhat else?even more sexist than you think.

At any rate, the Cornell campus is swarming with lunatics: A student-sponsored event at Cornell University (CU) claimed capitalism and white supremacy are institutions that promote rape culture and must be destroyed. The event, which recognized a National Day of Protest Against Rape Culture late last month, took place in CUs William Straight Hall. Bailey Dineen, one of the sponsors of the event,...

    Theres a wonderful book, A Confederacy of Dunces, the title of which refers to an epigraph from Jonathan Swift's essay, "Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting": "When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." I was reminded of it this week when the confederacy of dunces both here and in Great Britain seems to have linked arms against the genius of Western civilization and the long-suffering middle class which has for so long sustained it.

    [...]The constitutional right to be free from unlawful search and seizure is based on the psychological need to maintain control over personal information and behavior. The involuntary loss of privacy and dignity regarding sex is a central aspect of the psychopathology of American sex totalitarianism. And it has been inflicting itself on the American mind from the highest offices of government. Sexually oriented feminists can be divided into two generations. The central purpose of the first generation was to legalize abortion and normalize sex outside marriage. Gloria Steinem is still the leader of that generation. She, who is often seen...

    Prior to the 2012 HHS Mandate, there were no runs on birth control suppliers, nor were there demonstrations in the streets by women demanding free birth control. Nowhere was there observed a dearth of women willing to work for businesses informed by a religious conscience on matters of contraception or abortion. This should come as a shock to those predicting the end of womens freedom as a result of the Supreme Courts decisions in Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood. It should also shock those protesters screaming about womens ovaries on the steps of the Supreme Court. It should even shock...

But, I guess you would be wrong. Sandra is at it again, ahead of the Supreme Courts ruling on the Hobby Lobby case. Hobby Lobby has been fighting for the religious liberty of its owners before the Supreme Court. Today, SCOTUS is expected to release its ruling on the matter determining whether or not the Obamacare contraception...

Twenty percent of Americans self-identify as feminists, Karin Agness of the Network of Enlightened Women (NeW) said at the Heritage Foundation on Monday. She gave the Huffington Post as her source, hardly a right wing web site. Moreover, surveys show that women are less happy than they were 40 years ago, Agness notes, and, last year the Pew foundation found that only 37% of women want to work full-time.

    Negative stereotypes about environmentalists and feminists are engrained in society, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Toronto quizzed over 400 Americans about both types of activists and received 'overwhelmingly negative' feedback. The most common words used to describe 'typical feminists' included 'man-hating' and 'unhygienic' while 'tree-hugger' and 'hippie' were attached to 'typical environmentalists'. Revealing their findings in the European Journal of Social Psychology, the researchers say these character attacks 'play a key role in creating resistance to social change.'

    Why dont people behave in more environmentally friendly ways? New research presents one uncomfortable answer: They dont want to be associated with environmentalists. Thats the conclusion of troubling new research from Canada, which similarly finds support for feminist goals is hampered by a dislike of feminists. Participants held strongly negative stereotypes about such activists, and those feelings reduced their willingness to adopt the behaviors that these activities promoted, reports a research team led by University of Toronto psychologist Nadia Bashir. This surprisingly cruel caricaturing, the researchers conclude, plays a key role in creating resistance to social change. Writing in the...

    Sometimes I Think Feministas Just Want To Be Spotted Hyenas From Wikipedia: The spotted hyena is the largest member of the Hyaenidae, and is further physically distinguished from other species by its vaguely bear-like build, its rounded ears, its less prominent mane, its spotted pelt, its more dual purposed dentition, its fewer nipples and the presence of a pseudo-penis in the female. It is the only mammalian species to lack an external vaginal opening.[...]Females dominate males, with even the lowest ranking females being dominant over the highest ranking males.

    NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE September 19, 2013 4:00 AM Losing Men Thats where the war is. In 2010, more than 38,000 people killed themselves in the United States and over 30,000 of them were men, Helen Smith, a forensic psychologist, points out in her book Men on Strike. How many of these men had decided to kill themselves because they could no longer see their children, had a broken relationship, or were involved in a bitter divorce? she asks. Ironically, even when you look at the suicide statistics, most concern seems to be about women who kill themselves. Apparently, our...

    COLORADO SPRINGS -- Out: The boy who cried wolf. In: The girl who cried birth control. Desperate Democrats are imposing false-alarm feminist politics on a high-stakes recall election in Colorado this month. It's a golden opportunity for independent-minded women to reject empty femme-a-goguery and tear up the Sandra Fluke card. On September 10, Colorado Springs and Pueblo will decide whether to boot two top state Democrats (state Senate Majority Leader John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron) over their support for radical gun- and ammo-control measures spearheaded by outside special interests. Left-wing billionaires Michael Bloomberg of New York City and...

    As Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper, rapist and baby killer, shuffled off in chains to the hoosegow, I thought why was there so little reportage or commentary about his idiotic statement made in an Ohio courtroom. Is it because the man himself is so repugnant? Is it because his transgressions against society are so repulsive? I think it is both and one thing more. Americans have heard all this claptrap before. We are familiar with the rumblings of a sociopath. A sociopath, in plain language unadorned by the psychiatrists' hocus-pocus, is a person who does not know right from wrong,...

    On a blazing summer afternoon in Moscow, Stefania, an Italian professional in her early 30s, manages to look picture-perfect. In a belted tangerine dress, with an impeccable manicure and glossy hair, she fits right in to a local culture that celebrates ultra-feminine style. You have to dress bright, like a traffic light high heels, short skirts, hair, nails to attract mens attention, she explained. Dating in Moscow is a war, and your looks are your only weapons. Yet even as she turns heads in the street, Stefania admits that her love life is a struggle. Dating Russian men...

    On Wednesday, Great Britains Girl Guides (their equivalent of U.S. Girl Scouts) and Brownies removed God from their 103-year-old oath. Instead of the passage where they used to promise to love God, they will now vow to be true to "myself" and develop "my beliefs." The organization said the move is intended to attract girls from secular families. Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, condemned the move, saying, "These values have their roots in a Christian outlook. Taking God out of the promise denies the history and foundations of the movement without offering anything in its place, with the...

    In which Bishopess Schori’s “Theo-fantastic” Curacao sermon is reexamined, evaluated, judged, and ditched. Brethren, Peace and good to all of you. I can't listen to this sermon! I’ve been asking myself what (or who) possessed Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, the Episcopal Church’s presiding bishopess of the Episcopal Church, to deliver this sermon in Curacao. As you might remember, I commented on it not long ago on a previous blog post. I think I got the answer after reading a chapter of this book, God or Goddess?: Feminist Theology : What Is It? Where Does It Lead?, by Manfred Hauke....

    It is not news to sober-minded observers that for the last half-century, equality in the U.S. has gone off the rails—politically, legally, morally, and culturally. Tocqueville had foreseen the eclipsing of liberty by the desire for equality in democratic republics like ours, and nowadays we see it vividly and routinely. Not only is the liberty of people who are expected to respect even dubious claims of others’ equality compromised, so is the liberty and well-being of those who in the name of equality are supposedly being helped.We see that the U.S. Department of Education is now demanding that disabled students...
