  • Camille Paglia: Hillary Clinton’s Brand of Feminism ‘Defines Women as Perpetual Victims’

    Truncated title. Full title: Camille Paglia: Hillary Clinton’s Brand of Feminism ‘Defines Women as Perpetual Victims’ Could Cost Her Election Feminist provocateur Camille Paglia says Hillary Clinton’s adoption of a “blame-men-first” brand of feminism that “defines women as perpetual victims” who need protection and salvation from the government could be costly to her campaign. Writing at Salon, Paglia – the author of Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars – asserts that Clinton adopted the “second-wave” brand of feminism – propagated by the “telegenic” Gloria Steinem, who stated, “A woman needs a man like a fish...

    University Of Washington Cheerleading Squad Receive Backlash For 'Ideal Cheerleader' Checklist [VIDEO] The University of Washington cheerleading squad received backlash from social media after posting a cheerleader checklist for their tryouts. (Photo : Ethan Miller/Getty Images) The infographic "Cheer and Dance Tryout Look" was posted by the University of Washington cheerleading team for their upcoming tryouts. The team received backlash from students and other critics who said that the poster was sexist as it told women to look a certain way to qualify. NBC News reports that the poster was first posted on University of Washington's Facebook page this week....

    “She had several abortions before she had Chelsea and it was only because Bill convinced her that if they were ever going to move up in politics that they had to have a child because that is what the political analysts had said,” Miller says. “They’ve gotta see her as a human. They have to see her — I think in society they always say, ‘If you were a mother, you can’t be half bad. There has to be some love or gentleness or compassion within in you birth a child,’ but that’s not true. “There’s some pretty bad mothers....

However, this grab at ersatz identity in the middle of the MSNBC townhall last night by Bernie Sanders exposes the more mundane lack of authenticity seen on the trail.

    Life News ^ | Feb 18, 2016 | Micaiah Bilger
    Sometime in the not too distant past, the feminist movement began backtracking from its mission to empower women and started dictating what women can’t do. Pro-abortion feminists say women can’t be successful without abortion. Single moms can’t parent children and achieve their career goals. Mothers can’t focus too much on their children’s lives. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, pointed out a recent example of this after Vogue published a cover story about Adele. Some pro-abortion feminists began criticizing the international singing sensation because she told the magazine that she had found new purpose in life through motherhood. Adele...

  • Seattle man tests transgender rule by undressing in women's locker room

    Seattle Parks and Recreation is facing a first-of-a-kind challenge to gender bathroom rules. Last week, a man undressed in a women's locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity. Around 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, a man wearing board shorts entered the women's locker room at Evans Pool and took of his shirt, according to Seattle Parks and Recreation. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said "the law has changed and I have a right to be here." As far as policy to protect everyone,...

    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).

    At George Washington University, feminists, documentarians and activists alike gathered and voiced their criticisms about the feminist movement at large and their resistance to acknowledge abuse of women in Muslim, Hindu and Sikh communities. In a panel discussion entitled, “Censorship and Free Speech,” a human rights lawyer-turned-documentarian and two activist directors and producers discussed their personal experiences with censorship from the Left and from Hollywood. Paula Kewskin, an attorney in international humanitarian and human rights law, also wrote and produced the documentary “Honor Diaries.” According to its website, the documentary “gives a platform to exclusively female voices and seeks to...

    Muslim men rape non-Muslim women (and girls) in disproportionately high numbers in countries with growing Muslim minority populations. Rape of infidel women is part of Islamic law and Islamic tradition. As such, it’s been going on for centuries. This article is about the current threat Muslim rapists pose to non-Muslim women. In order to keep this article to a reasonable length, the focus is on the rape epidemic in Europe, but suffice it to say rape jihad is a gruesome reality the world over. Perhaps there is no European country where rape has reached epidemic proportions as it has in...

    Toward the end of the century, Westerners who fled their home countries to fight in Afghanistan or Bosnia shared a common characteristic: They were practically all men. Today’s militant recruits, however, represent a dramatic demographic shift. Most are just entering adulthood. They often meet terrorists online. They’ve asked in covert chats: Do you have hair dryers, or should I bring one? One in seven are women, according to a new report. An estimated 4,500 Westerners have ditched home for the Islamic State or other Sunni jihadist groups in Syria or Iraq. Researchers at New America, a nonpartisan think tank in...

British authorities seem determined to stifle legitimate debate about their immigration policies and stance toward the jihad threat, and to keep their country on the path to chaos and civil war.

Last year, 4chan started the #EndFathersDay hashtag, but with even better trollistic success. Professor...

    A national women's organization is challenging Gov. Bruce Rauner's appointments to the Illinois Tollway, saying he is violating state law by creating an all-male board. Over the past three months, Rauner has named five male directors and re-appointed another to the nine-member Tollway board, which already included three men. In addition, Rauner backed Greg Bedalov as the agency's new executive director. Bedalov replaced Kristi Lafleur, who had held the post under the tenure of former Gov. Pat Quinn. The National Council of Women's Organizations is charging that Rauner is violating the Illinois Gender Balanced Appointments Act. The 1991 law is...

    Feminists have a lot to complain about. They post sexy pictures online to protest Silicon Valley "discrimination" against women, they think office temperatures are biased against women, they hold parades to demand the right to be called "sluts," they demand written consent for sex, they complain that women can't negotiate salaries, that movies feature too few 50-year-old women, and so on. These seem like really big issues, perhaps, until you see what is happening in the Middle East. ISIS fanatics have executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with its fighters, a Kurdish official has said. They were put...

A massive influx of immigrants from Muslim-populated countries in Africa and the Middle East has led the group to conclude that more than half a million girls in the U.S. are in danger of having their exposed sexual organs skinned from their bodies. The practice is known as female genital mutilation (FGM).

Therefore, Dvorak concluded, “That’s right, my friends. Air conditioning is another big, sexist plot.” …

Several doses each of the drugs Mifepristone and Misoprostol, which, taken together, constitute an abortion. “This is not an air drop,” Rebecca Gomperts tells me over the phone, days before the delivery is due to take place. “This is an individual delivery method – we’re not dropping bags full of abortion pills into Poland.” At the moment, Gomperts and her team at Women on Waves are planning to deliver “less than five” doses to individual women who need them...

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be the perfect feminist hero. In theory, she fits the role on multiple levels: She’s an escapee from an abusive patriarchy. She’s an African immigrant who made her own way in a Western country, the Netherlands. She’s a fierce advocate for women’s rights. She’s a target for deadly violence by angry men who want to shut her up. She left her religion and became a scourge of its repressive practices. Except for the blemish on her record: Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a dissident from the wrong religion. Raised a Muslim in Somalia, subjected to genital mutilation...

And then we will end where Marcotte began. Pro-lifers and those who have no particular stake in the abortion issue have passed a great number of laws going back to 2011 that require that abortion clinics upgrade their physical plant (and therefore the safety of women); that they use the FDA recommended protocol for chemical abortions; that abortionists have admitting...

    Many people don’t know that the early feminists (those who fought for a woman’s right to vote in the 1800s) were mostly pro-life. Mattie H Brinckerhoff was a popular lecturer in the Midwest on women’s suffrage and other women’s rights topics. Here is some of her writing on abortion. Her use of the term “voluntary motherhood” dealt with the choice women should have to refuse to have sex in order to avoid childbearing. It’s hard to believe, but at the time, women had no right to refuse sex with their husbands- they could not prosecute him for rape, and culture...

    Younger generations are fighting back. Yesterday, the Cardiff University Students' Union, in Wales voted down a motion that would have made the Students' Union officially pro-choice and effectively banned pro-life activities. Clauses within the motion included preventing "affiliated societies and groups from taking part in anti-choice protests or rallies outside of abortion clinics and under the banner of the student’s union," with another part saying: "Any information about abortion or contraception disseminated, distributed or presented in union or university buildings must be unbiased and not shame those who choose to have abortions, and must be academically referenced."The motion would...

    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. Peter’s 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 women’s 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 Francis’s upcoming visit to...
  • On Behalf of the Patriarchy, Liberal Feminists Can Kiss Off

    After making America suffer through six years of, “That’s racist,” because we elected a black President, liberals are just dying to repeat the experience. That’s why they want to elect Hillary Clinton, so we can be nagged with, “That’s sexist,” every time she’s criticized for doing something stupid. As a side note, isn’t Hillary Clinton’s existence proof that there’s no patriarchy? After all, her whole career was built on staying married to a serial philanderer, she accomplished nothing of note as a senator or as Secretary of State and she has about as much personality as a Pet Rock; yet...

    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...

    Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women (NOW), was correct in citing the shameful facts about the high rates of preterm birth, infant mortality and maternal mortality in the U.S. in yesterday’s Huffington Post. 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...

    It's the greatest threat of all time. Aside from Ebola, the DUH DOD has little else to do. According to the Daily Pest Beast, nurses fight Ebola more bravely than members of our military, so only 4,000 of our bravest and best boots on the ground are being ordered to Africa to fight it. Although the (non-Islamic) Islamic State is a bit of a nuisance now that Al-Qaeda is on the run, whatever we say or do about it might defame Islam. Since that would be "as bad as rape," we must not do it.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r05tdDB5NU] Video linkWe have much to learn from Secretary Kerry, even beyond the horrors of...

    The Cult of Contraception doesn’t exactly enjoy an overabundance of brain power, but when it comes to truly insipid commentary, PolicyMic has always been in a league of its own. This weekend, Marcie Bianco wrote that the birth control market is—what else?—even more sexist than you think. Opening with a comedy video from Buzzfeed (now there’s a font of deep cultural analysis) that purports to illustrate that “society places the burden of birth control on women rather than men,” whose condoms just don’t come with the cost and “cultural stigmas” of female birth-control options. The justification process alone — to...

    Cornell University may be the only Ivy League school with a “diversity” quota for the mentally ill. Or maybe the students were sane until they got to Ithaca and started studying under the tutelage of radical professors. 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 CU’s William Straight Hall. Bailey Dineen, one of the sponsors of the event,...

    Russian feminist protest punk band Pussy Riot found themselves at the Cambridge Police Department Monday evening after 2008 Harvard School of Public Health graduate Roman Torgovitsky was arrested for trespassing. Torgovitsky asked a question during Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina’s appearance at the JFK Jr. Forum earlier that evening, where he openly admitted to being “illegally” on Harvard grounds after he had been arrested in May for an altercation with campus police.
