    [Catholic Caucus] Francis-appointed bishop urges Catholics not to oppose violent feminists who attack churches, defends feminists October 7, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The archbishop of La Plata, Argentina, appointed by Pope Francis in 2018, is urging his flock not to counter-protest or defend local churches from a group of violent, pro-abortion feminists that attack Catholic churches every year during their national annual meeting. In an article recently published by the Argentinean newspaper La Nación, Archbishop Victor Manuel “Tucho” Fernández told his flock not to do anything that could be interpreted as “resistance” to the tens of thousands of feminists who...

    The latest smear on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is a disaster for Democrats, and everyone seems to know it except the party’s presidential candidates. No sooner had the New York Times published a new, unsubstantiated allegation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, then most of the candidates demanded Kavanaugh’s impeachment. “These newest revelations are disturbing,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) wrote on Twitter, adding “Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.” Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) declared Kavanaugh’s “place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.” Sen....

    Marvel's The Amazing Spider-Man is changing the dynamic of Peter Parker's social circle in a huge way as he's been forced to defend his roommate, Boomerang, from the new incarnation of the Syndicate, an all-female crew sent by Wilson Fisk to kidnap him. But while the latest chapter sees the team pursuing Boomerang to undoubtedly score a major payday, we eventually discover a common ambition the members share: They want to bring down the patriarchy and, more so, take a shot against toxic masculinity in a New York that they believe should have more women in power. When the women...
  • Turning Women Into “Gestators” Is the Way to Abolish Motherhood

    08/13/2019 8:14:58 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 10 replies
    The present manifestations of feminism are mere phases of a process that seeks the annihilation of women. It seems a contradiction. Feminism claims to glorify women and their accomplishments. Women’s Studies departments worldwide are supposedly dedicated to the study of women’s achievements and the denouncing of the “oppression” they have suffered over the ages. However, avant-garde feminists reveal the true nature of their nihilistic creed. They desire the destruction of all that was once considered to be female. They claim the feminine ideal is a social construct that inhibits and restrains women from being whatever they want to be. Central...

    Chechen woman who fled to Moscow women's shelter is now smiling for TV cameras in Grozny, accusing ‘feminists’ of malicious ‘recruitment’ Earlier this week, the television station Grozny aired a 27-minute segment about a Chechen woman named Zaira Sugaipova, whom human rights advocates say was brought to Chechnya against her will by her parents after fleeing to a crisis center to escape a forced marriage. In the video, the woman answers questions from officials in Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov’s administration and says human rights advocates lied about her situation.
  • Women's March Organizer Linda Sarsour Under Fire for Radical Islamist-Terrorist Ties

    The day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Linda Sarsour ascended the global stage at the Women’s March on Washington. Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angel a Davis, Van Jones — she is proving to be equally controversial. Sarsour (shown), a co-chair of the march, is a "Muslim feminist" and well-known Soros-funded activist in New York City, where she is executive director of the Arab Amer ican Association of New York (AAANY) and a director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), a radical migrant-refugee "rights" organization. She is also, say critics, connected...

    Here’s the left’s next great idea for bringing down President Trump: another women’s march. Which means another public instance of Trump haters shouting slogans to one another and mistaking it for constructive politics. What progressives need to defeat Trump is outreach, but all they have is outrage. On March 8, organizers seem to be aiming for a different vibe than the librarians-in-pussy-hats element that made the first women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable. Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on...

    A university student who won a national award for designing a chair that stops men from manspreading has faced vile rape threats. Laila Laurel, 23, studying at the University of Brighton, created the piece of furniture to stop men from widening their legs and encroaching on other people's personal space. In her design, two bits of wood are positioned on the seat to physically stop whoever is sitting down from moving their legs apart. She received the award last week but says that she has been sent 'unpleasant backlash' since, with men sending explicit photos and rape threats to her...

Then her life suddenly changed and she became public enemy number one. She tells her astonishing story — what happened and why — in this compelling video.

    German Catholic women have launched a weeklong boycott by suspending voluntary work in churches. Their protest has crystallized fury over a male-only priesthood and bishops' foot-dragging on sex scandals.A grassroots Catholic women's movement - using the motto of the Virgin Mary who should be given her voice - launched a week of disobedient non-service on Saturday - with the backing of major lay organizations and even singular bishops. The women planned to hold rites outside churches, without priests, and withhold services inside parishes until May 18 at least 50 locations to back their call that the Vatican open the priesthood...

    Older people are the fastest-growing group of cannabis users, as stigma fades and some seek an alternative to prescription drugs As attitudes towards cannabis shift, the fastest-growing group of users is over 50 – and marijuana’s popularity among seniors is beginning to change the American experience of old age. Why are more seniors getting high? It might make more sense to ask: “Why not?” As adults reach retirement, they age out of drug tests and have far more time on their hands. Some feel liberated to abandon long-held proprieties. Elegant vape pens and other attractive, discreet products have helped de...

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    An inveterate fan of Christmas music, I added to my Sirius presets the Hallmark Radio Channel -- Channel 70, if you are looking -- the day after Thanksgiving. I have been rotating this channel, which plays standards from the American songbook, with a Christian station that features more traditional Christian music. I was pleased to hear that the Hallmark Channel continues to play the slightly naughty, 1949, call-and-response classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Hallmark, in fact, may very well play this song in its multiple versions more than any other. Composed by Frank Loesser of “Guys and Dolls” fame,...

    A coalition of women's rights organizations filed an appeal to the High Court of Justice arguing that Israel's recently-relaxed gun laws are causing more women to be murdered. According to Ynet, the ten different organizations say that a recent uptick of murders are the direct result of a decision by Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan to allow veterans of IDF infantry units to obtain personal handgun permits. In addition, the appeal claims that 40% of all women are murdered in Israel by handguns compared to only 28% in the OECD. "There is a clear and proven connection between the extent...

    Forty years ago the big holiday hit was Superman, Hollywood’s very first superhero blockbuster. Warner Bros marketed the movie by promising the sky to moviegoers: “You’ll believe a man can fly.” Now, four decades later, that promise should be rewritten to reflect a new era of superhero blockbusters: “You better believe a woman can fly, too.” Deadline broke the news this week that Sony is ramping up a Spider-Women film that will feature three female iterations of Marvel’s wall-crawling Spider-Man and a script by Bek Smith. The project joins a growing wave of female superhero projects in the works that...

    Elizabeth Yore, an international child protection attorney, spoke on Wednesday to host Alex Marlow of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, highlighting the silence of feminists — and feminism’s prioritization of “diversity” — on the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM). “The silence from feminists has been deafening on this issue,” said Yore. “We need the support of feminists who believe in the rights of women to enjoy sexual pleasure. Well, these little girls have been robbed of that for the rest of their lives.” Yore added, “We’re supposed to be feminists, right? We’re supposed to protect women and girls. Why are...

    Ah, to have an all-female workplace, full of sugar and spice and everything nice and absent #MeToo turpitude and transgressions. Are you in, ladies? Well, before signing on that dotted line, you may want to consider the experiences of the sugar-and-spice girls at Sweden’s new Gender Equality Authority. Yes, that sounds like what’s birthed when Orwell’s 1984 meets The Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (Bill Maher’s most memorable movie), but it wasn’t mainly men being consumed in this bureaucracy. As Sweden’s FriaTider reports (auto-translated and corrected for grammar): The New Gender Equality Authority has a leadership consisting...

    This is CNN… On Friday, the outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news for its rabid anti-Trump and anti-Republican bias, published an op-ed suggesting that women engage in a “sex strike” before the midterm election, no doubt to help Democrats. “It’s time for a revolution,” wrote Wednesday Martin. “At the polls, and in the bedroom. And in our understanding of who women are, sexually and otherwise. Given the tight interweaving of economic and political power with sexual entitlement, female sexual autonomy has never been more urgent, and women’s sexual pleasure has never been more political. Let’s consider what...
