  • Sexist! Nicolle Wallace Insults Kayleigh McEnany as Trump's 'Right-Hand Spokesgal'

    On her MSNBC show this afternoon, the sexist Nicolle Wallace slighted Kayleigh McEnany, President Trump's spokesperson, as a "spokesgal."It actually got worse. Wallace noted that Keir Simmons, the NBC reporter with whom she was speaking, had spoken with Vladimir Putin's "right-hand man," and that he sounded similar to President Trump's "right-hand spokesgal." So according to Nicolle Wallace's sexist standards, a senior male aide to Putin is a "man." But a senior female aide is a "gal." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    We now say not to use the archaic and sexist term "mistress" for a woman in a long-term sexual relationship with, and financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion or lover on first reference. Provide details later.

    Author Margaret Atwood has claimed that women's rights and the climate crisis are 'very connected'. The Handmaid's Tale writer, 80, from Ottawa, Canada, insisted that action around climate change is 'very important' and credited Greta Thunberg with leading momentum around this subject. [snip] 'That and the rights of women are very connected. So the people who want to suppress women, also want to pretend there is no climate crisis. 'So if you suppress women, you suppress also some very strong voices about the climate crisis.'

    The presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has insisted he is a “champion for women in the workplace”, after the republication of a 30-year-old booklet purporting to contain his “Wit and Wisdom” cast an uncomfortable spotlight on the billionaire former New York mayor. The Washington Post made the 1990 booklet available online as it published an investigation of how Bloomberg has “for years battled women’s allegations of profane, sexist comments”. The booklet was presented as a gift to Bloomberg on his 48th birthday party and contains a catalogue of sexist remarks attributed to the billionaire during his time at the company he...

    This week, a half-dozen "women of color" defected from Sen. Elizabeth Warren's effort to win Democratic presidential delegates in Nevada. Megan Lewis, a field organizer blamed "a toxic culture that marginalized me as a woman of color. None of my suggestions were ever acted upon. I felt I was only on-board to give the appearance that the Candidate cared about my issues or me as a person." In response, Warren cited "America's long history of racism and sexism" for the dust-up. "As a Native American woman, I, too, had to face racism and sexism on my path to eminence at...
  • Are Performance Reviews Sexist? New Research Says Yes

    You’ve probably been asked to do a performance review at some point in your career. It was probably anxiety-inducing, and it probably didn’t accomplish much. Worse: it was probably mandatory. Career experts have long advised managers to do away with these kinds of evaluations, backed by heaps of studies deeming the practice outdated, costly, and largely ineffective. Last month, researchers at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania found another reason to give them the boot. Turns out, they’re also sexist.

    One of the several downsides in watching too much football this past weekend was watching too many TV commercials. And although I had grown used to the “stupid white man” trope, now a staple of comic advertising, I was unprepared for AT&T’s impressively racist and sexist “Just OK is not OK” campaign. The larger message of the campaign is that “when it comes to wireless networks, just OK is not OK.” According to some dubious test, AT&T is allegedly “America’s best network.” To launch this concept, AT&T and its marketing geniuses at the Omnicom Group designed a series of scenarios...

    While every single 2020 Democratic presidential candidate avidly supports a woman’s “right” to abortion, it seems some are considerably more comfortable with calling the procedure what it is: killing a child. Old sins cast especially long shadows when you run for president, as former New York Mayor and latecomer to the 2020 Democratic primary race, Michael Bloomberg has discovered, and an incident in the 90’s in which he rather crassly referred to abortion is making headlines once more. According to The New York Times, the former New York City Mayor was recently forced to address the heartless, decades-old statements made...

    Mike Bloomberg has on repeated occasions faced and fought allegations that he directed crude and sexist comments to women in his office, including a claim in the 1990s that he told an employee who had just announced she was pregnant to "kill it." "He told me to 'kill it' in a serious monotone voice," the woman alleged in a lawsuit. "I asked 'What? What did you just say?' He looked at me and repeated in a deliberate manner 'kill it.'"

    Sixteen-year-old Sadie Earegood has turned to local police with the claim that her teacher recently ripped a “Women for Trump” pin off her chest. The high school junior told a local NBC affiliate in Mason, Michigan, that teacher Paul Kato couldn’t agree to disagree upon seeing her political pin on Dec. 5. “I was just really shocked that a teacher would especially do that,” she told the station on Monday. “He’s talking about the ‘Women for Trump’ pin and I said, ‘That’s fine you don’t have to like it, we can have our opinions.’ “ Sadie said it wasn’t...

    In a finding sure to inflame the gender wars, research funded by the U.K. government suggests women around the world, and especially in Canada, are significantly more ignorant of current affairs and politics than men. This gender gap is constant across countries as diverse as the U.S., Greece, Japan and Australia. It is as clear in Colombia, where most people scored very low on tests about current news events, as it is in Norway, where knowledge is generally high. It is as evident in the U.K. and U.S., where gender equality is well established in the culture, as it is...

    A professor at Indiana University who defended "racist, sexist, and homophobic" comments that he posted on his social media accounts will keep his job because his views are protected under the Constitution, university officials announced after they were bombarded with demands to fire him. Eric Rasmusen, a professor of business economics and public policy at the university, tweeted this month a quote from an article that said, "geniuses are overwhelmingly male because they combine outlier IQ with moderately low Agreeableness and Moderately low Conscientiousness." The article, titled, "Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably" was published by The Unz Review, which describes...

    A Democratic strategist has blamed sexism for Elizabeth Warren's poor head-to-head polling numbers against President Donald Trump in key battleground states. Andrew Feldman questioned whether the United States was ready to elect a female president on the Hill TV show Rising with Krystal & Saagar yesterday, echoing similar responses to Hillary Clinton's defeat at the 2016 presidential election. The founder of Feldman Strategies brought up the issue of sexism during a discussion on polling released Monday that showed the president doing better than Warren in three key swing states. **SNIP** In his appearance on "Rising with Krystal & Saagar," Feldman...

    Here are some of the messages the left has been giving America’s young people: —Your past is terrible, and your future is terrible. The American past is a story of genocide, slavery, racism, patriarchy, and colonialism. You should be ashamed of it. As regards your future, your very existence is in jeopardy. You may well die at a young age unless society completely shifts from fossil fuels to wind and solar power. In fact, your future is so bleak you should probably not consider getting married and having children. —If you are a girl, you should know that American society...

    Natural history specimens are widely used across ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation. Although biological sex may influence all of these areas, it is often overlooked in large-scale studies using museum specimens. If collections are biased towards one sex, studies may not be representative of the species. Here, we investigate sex ratios in over two million bird and mammal specimen records from five large international museums. We found a slight bias towards males in birds (40% females) and mammals (48% females), but this varied among orders. The proportion of female specimens has not significantly changed in 130 years, but has decreased...

    It’s the media’s job to investigate and report the truth about important people and events — at least, it used to be. These days, it seems that following facts no matter where they lead has been replaced by progressive pandering. It’s hard to come to any other conclusion, especially after a jaw-dropping piece published by CNN on Wednesday. The left-leaning news network has essentially declared that questioning an unlikely story told by a female presidential candidate is sexist. Forget fact-checking and holding powerful people accountable; if a politician is the correct gender, they apparently get special treatment. “Warren pregnancy debate...

    It was another instance of that most common of events: a woman, diminished. Earlier this week, Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate, was asked about a story that she's mentioned often on the campaign trail: In 1971, when she was 22 years old and completing her first year of teaching, she lost her job once it became clear that she was visibly pregnant. It was, she tweeted, "an experience millions of women will recognize." But over the past few days, conservative news sites and mainstream outlets either have sought to directly refute Warren's account or have disputed...

    An underwear ad that depicts a world where men and boys menstruate is getting either banned or censored by several TV networks. Thinx, a New York-based maker of feminine hygiene products, said the campaign slated to launch Wednesday on national TV is meant to take the taboo factor out of menstruation. The 30-second spot opens with a tortured-looking teenage boy telling his dad that he got his first period. It then cuts to a man rolling over in bed to reveal a blood stain on his sheets. Moments later, another man walks through a locker room with a tampon string...

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's newly appointed executive director wants to cancel male political candidates. Lucinda Guinn, a former executive at pro-abortion fundraising giant EMILY's List, was named executive director of the embattled Democratic elections organization. The news comes as a blow to male Democrats, as Guinn has indicated on social media that she does not want men to run for office. In a February tweet, Guinn appeared to agree with another user's proposal that "we shouldn't let boys run for office anymore." The idea was initially raised by liberal think tank Third Way's senior vice president, Lanae Erickson, who...
