    Let’s be clear: My pronouns are “he,” “his,” and “stop being creepy weirdos.”Okay, maybe the last one isn’t a pronoun, but then again, I’m a man and if I want an insulting string of words directed at the nattering nabobs of gender neutrality to be a pronoun, it is a pronoun. And if you don’t like it, fight me.We need more masculinity, and the more toxic the social justice warriors think it is, the better.Bizarrely, now shaving companies are allying with the SJWs in an Axis of Irritants. Gillette is channeling campus gender studies dorks to try to sell you...

    Recently on CNN, former Republican politico and now Never Trump cable new analyst Rick Wilson characterized Donald Trump’s supporters as his “credulous rube ten-toothed base.” Wilson was not original in his smear of the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump. He was likely resonating an earlier slander of Politico reporter Marco Caputo. The latter had tweeted of the crowd he saw at a Trump rally: “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.” Was the point of these stereotypes that poor white working-class people who supposedly voted for the controversial Trump...

    Kieran Ravi Bhattacharya had a pediatrician mother who pushed him, and when his friends were out playing baseball and lighting things on fire, he had to stay indoors and play his violin. Kieran is 22 years old now, but let's take a look at him: But he stuck to it, eventually winning acceptance to the medical school of the University of Virginia, where the acceptance rate is just 6%. In mid November Kieran had a class called Social Issues in Medicine. One of the lecturers for this class was Dr. Beverly Adams, pictured below: No, I'm serious. That's really her....

    Conservatives are used to losing culture war fights. Remember when ABC finally served up a show that treated Trump Nation with some respect? Months later “Roseanne” was gone, a victim of one God awful Tweet. Or how the right-leaning “Last Man Standing” nearly snared an early retirement after it didn’t get big enough ratings for ABC. That didn’t happen with “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” The 1944 yuletide classic came under assault, again, but this year felt different. The #MeToo wave, a worthwhile movement hijacked by the Left, targeted the film for cultural extinction. And Social Justice Warriors have more muscle...

    Two Scandinavian women recently went on a hiking trip in Morrocco. Shown below, their names were Louisa Jespersen, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, from Norway. Their photos appear below: Men abducted and killed the pretty pair. Louisa was beheaded with a small knife and suffered horribly. Here is another shot of the pair. They were obviously great friends: Moroccan authorites have arrested and now are questioning the three suspects shown below: Whether very liberal or conservative, this double murder is sad; the authorities later stated that the murderers had ISIS sympathies. What would lead such a gorgeous pair to go...
  • Most Americans against becoming more 'politically correct:' poll

    The poll carried out bt the Marist Institute for Public Opinion showed that 52 percent of Americans did not want public discourse to become more PC, including a majority of independent voters. The mood reflects what President Donald Trump and his supporter have railed against, arguing that political correctness -- the desire to not use language which minority groups may find offensive -- had limited their right to say what they really want to say.

    The challenges of making tech more welcoming for women are numerous, especially in the field of artificial intelligence. To get a sense of just how monumental a task the tech community faces, look no further than the marquee gathering for AI’s top scientists. Preparations for this year’s event drew controversy not only because there weren’t enough female speakers or study authors. The biggest debate was over the conference’s name. The annual Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems, formerly known as NIPS, had become a punchline symbol about just how bad the gender imbalance is for artificial intelligence. Thousands...

    When we say ‘Santa’, you probably think of an old fat guy with a bushy beard - but what if they were a woman, or non-binary? Isn't everyone capable of spreading Christmas cheer? This is the debate that's heating up right now after a councillor in Newton Aycliffe (near Durham) complained last month about a woman being cast in the role of Santa in the town’s Christmas parade. Arun Chandran, the Newton Aycliffe councillor who was against the idea of a female Santa, told The Times that the role is only appropriate for men. “My understanding is that Santa Claus,...

    I’ve experienced a lot of strange things while performing comedy: Rosario Dawson made fun of me while I was bombing in front of hundreds of Bernie Sanders fans. I once had to tell the crowd mid-show that the venue was closing for an impromptu health inspection. On Nov. 30, I performed stand-up as part of an annual event put on by the Asian-American Alliance at Columbia, and about 20 minutes into the show, my microphone was cut off. It wasn’t because of some fire code violation, or because some violently drunk heckler and I were about to fistfight. It was...

    A Lord Mayor has removed a portrait of a politician linked to the slave trade from her office and replaced it with the picture of an African-American woman. Cleo Lake took down the 'dull and dated' portrait of Lord Nugent holding the 1750 Act of Parliament, painted by Thomas Gainsborough, from the walls of City Hall in Bristol. The Mayor has replaced the portrait with a painting of Henrietta Lacks, whose cancer cells became the source of the HeLa cell line and central to modern medicine.

    A LEADING MEP has warned EU citizens they could be “jailed” for criticising migration policies if a new United Nations agreement is acted upon. (snip) --- “One basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech. “The agreement wants to criminalise migration speech. Criticism of migration will become a criminal offence. “Media outlets that give room to criticism of migration can be shut down.

    This is a tale of two young, outspoken women in media. One is a liberal tech writer. The other is an enterprising conservative new media reporter. One has achieved meteoric success and now works at a top American newspaper. The other has been de-platformed and marginalized. Their wildly different fates tell you everything you need to know about Silicon Valley's free speech double standards. Some smug elites will downplay Twitter's disparate treatment of these users by arguing that private tech corporations can do whatever they want and that no First Amendment issues have been raised. But this battle is about...

    An Idaho elementary school came under fire after photos showed staff members dressed as the border wall for Halloween this week. The costume had the words “Make America Great Again” written over the front. The employees also wore costumes exploiting Mexican stereotypes. Photos posted to the Middleton School District’s Facebook page showed staff members from the Middleton Heights Elementary School dressed up in cardboard to appear like a wall, KTVB reported [near Boise]. The words “Make America Great Again” were written in red, white and blue. The teachers were also seen wearing sombreros and brightly colored ponchos. The word “Mexican”...

    A Michigan State University department debuted Halloween posters titled, “A Culture is not a Costume" and included a guide called, “Is Your Halloween Costume Racist?” MSU’s Residence Hospitality and Services department featured the signs, which included a heavily detailed “Cultural Appropriation vs Appreciation” section, as spotted by Campus Reform. The boards are found throughout many of the university’s dorms. One poster brands the addition of a sombrero to a taco costume as “racist.”

    It’s Friday afternoon and I’m tired so let’s end on a lighter note. Long-running character Apu is going to be written out of the Simpsons forever. There has been controversy about the character, who speaks in a stereotypical Indian accent, for several years. Earlier this year producer Adi Shankar launched a spec script competition looking to somehow subvert or possibly put an end to the character. Shankar doesn’t work on the Simpsons but was hoping that if the idea caught on and the spec script was good enough, maybe the show would embrace the idea and produce it. But today...

    I just had an argument with a Facebook friend who called me "closed minded" when I said I had zero interest in seeing the Broadway musical 'Hamilton'. She says she won't talk to me until I check out the show for myself instead of "pre-judging it" I told her that I know it getting universal acclaim, but after reading about concept, it sound really stupid...it appears the premise is "Let's intentionally cast ethnic minorities and women to play white men from the colonial era so 'modern audiences' can 'relate' to the story. I hate when they do that in movies...

    Much of the recent transgender news has revolved around anticipated changes to Title IX language intended to restore a scientific basis to interpretations of the words sex and gender. But there’s been another disturbing trend in the education community which bears keeping an eye on. At Redstate, Brandon Morse has a troubling report about the suppression of research work into the frequency of patients experiencing regret over having transitional surgery, seeking to have it undone and other emotional or psychological challenges they have encountered. And it’s an increasingly common phenomenon. Sex change surgeries for people who suffer from gender dysphoria...

    Full title: ‘Oh No, Baby, What is You Doing?’: Megyn Kelly Catches Hell for Asking What’s Wrong with Black Face on Halloween On Tuesday, Megyn Kelly did a segment about the “crackdown” on Halloween costumes by political correctness, along with former First Daughter and NBC correspondent Jenna Bush Hager, producer and red carpet fashion staple Melissa Rivers, and MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff. Partway through the discussion, Kelly pondered what exactly is so bad about white people wearing blackface. The studio audience did not react negatively in real time. But after the segment, Twitter sure did.
