    After a very public shift in content rooted in the prevalence of pornography online, Playboy has not featured a nude Playmate in its monthly mag since March. According to recent reports, the models set to be featured in the iconic magazine’s upcoming issue are raising eyebrows for a different reason. While Hugh Hefner’s company flouted convention with its salacious spreads decades ago, the current incarnation appears to be falling in line with the politically correct narrative of multiculturalism.

    In a video posted on her Facebook page on September 21, New York-based Egyptian-American activist Ayat Oraby called the Coptic church "a gang, striving to establish a Coptic mini-state," and "a full-fledged mafia," and described Pope Tawadros as "a criminal." Oraby called upon Muslims to participate in an economic boycott of Copts, saying that: "They must be made to understand that the crescent must be on top of the cross."

    Two young women suspected of planning an attack in France were detained by police in the southern French city of Nice, a person familiar with the investigation said Sunday, the latest sign that Islamic State is shifting its focus from the battlefield in Syria to orchestrating terror plots in Europe. The two young women—17 and 19 years old—had been in contact with Rachid Kassim, a French recruiter for Islamic State, on the Telegram Messenger messaging app, the person said. Mr. Kassim, who is believed to be in Islamic State territory, couldn’t be reached for comment.

    While Playboy Magazine is often known for its more risky photo shoots, the magazine is making headlines with its recent October issue for a different reason. Noor Tagouri, an American journalist that happens to wear a hijab, was featured in the issue, marked as the magazine's "renegades" issue. The renegades series features both men and women who are changing the way people think. "They’ve risked it all—even their lives—to do what they love, showing us what can be accomplished if we break the rules," states Playboy.

    Female oppression and subjugation are integral elements of Islamic supremacism, exhibited by Saudi Arabia (among other Islamic states), which exports and funds Wahhabism globally. Saudi Arabia is now experiencing a kind of social media revolt by its women against its guardianship laws. Hurray for social media in allowing these women some dissenting expression; they are otherwise buried and gagged under the niqab. “The hashtag, #StopEnslavingSaudiWomen, has taken the Twitter social networking world by storm, calling for an end to these oppressive laws” of male guardianship. Females in Saudi Arabia are permanently under male guardians from birth. They can’t be educated,...

One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic...

Kaine said in a speech at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina Tuesday: It took 144 years before women even got the right to vote in this country. What were we thinking when we said equality mattered, but no. One hundred and forty-four years. It took us that long to say in 1920, to say women get a right to vote. And now we’re...

    A controversial female celebrity dubbed “Pakistan”s Kim Kardashian” has been strangled to death by her brother in what appears to be the country’s highest-profile honor killing. Qandeel Baloch, 26, had shot to fame in recent months with a series of divisive publicity stunts starkly at odds with the country’s conservative values, most notably promising to strip for Pakistan’s cricket team if it beat India in the recent cricket T20 World Cup. Her Facebook page on which she regularly posted provocative “selfie” photographs had 750,000 followers, but had also become a target of misogynistic abuse and threats. […] Hundreds of women...

    The rise of radical Islamism throughout Europe has left no exceptions. Notoriously tolerant Sweden has found itself on the receiving end of multiculturalism, with religious extremism steadily gaining ground. Recently, a small town in southern Sweden was shocked by extremist stickers advocating violence toward non-Muslim women. Following the unhindered influx of migrants, which was heavily advertised by media and the majority of the political establishment, Sweden has seen an equally unhindered wave of sexual attacks. To add insult to injury, blatantly non-PC stickers advocating violence against women were spotted in the town of Nybro in Sweden's southern province of Smĺland, the local news outlet 24Nybro reported. "Women who do...

    In the wake of Sunday's deadly terrorist shooting in Orlando, Donald Trump's longtime friend and informal adviser wants the presumptive Republican nominee to hit Hillary Clinton even harder, suggesting the former secretary of state's top aide Huma Abedin could be a "Saudi spy" or a "terrorist agent." Only Trump, Roger Stone said on Sirius XM's "Breitbart News Daily," will be able to draw the necessary amount of attention to the theories, which have drawn significant blowback from Democrats and Republicans alike. “I also think that now that Islamic terrorism is going to be front and center, there’s going to be...

    Hundreds of young Muslim girls have flocked to swimming lessons in Copenhagen's immigrant-heavy Tingbjerg district after Hovedstadens Svřmmeklub (Capital City Swimming Club) introduced segregated swimming sessions. While the swimming club has hailed the move as a "recipe for integration", politicians and commentators have criticised the concept as being against Danish values. The girl-only sessions, which also take place with windows and doors to the swimming hall blacked out, were set up in response to religious and cultural requirements put forward by parents, reports Berlingske. The newspaper reports that 246 girls of non-Danish ethnic origin between the ages of five and...

    If there’s a high bar for which social justice warriors strive, surely it was set by Britain’s first transgender gay Muslim woman. Amid the ongoing bathroom wars in America, conservative blogger Brandon Morse took to social media to call attention to Lucy Vallender, who he said “has the gold in the oppression [O]lympics.” Vallender, formerly known as Laurens before “he” became true to “herself,” is a former British soldier who had a sex operation in 2010 to switch out his male parts for female parts. Vallender would later convert to Islam, saying it’s a “peaceful” religion and take things even...
