  • Kim Jong Un’s sister warns of ‘destruction’ of South Korea ties after rival missile tests

    The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday criticized South Korea’s president and threatened a “complete destruction” of bilateral relations after the two countries tested ballistic missiles hours apart. The missile launches underscored a return of tensions between the rival Koreas at a time when talks aimed at halting North Korea’s nuclear program are stalled. Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, criticized South Korean President Moon Jae-in for comments he made while observing his country’s missile tests, including its first of a submarine-launched ballistic missile. Moon said South Korea’s growing missile capabilities would serve as a “sure...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday described herself as a feminist, saying her position on equality between men and women had developed over the years. “Essentially, it’s about the fact that men and women are equal, in the sense of participation in society and in life in general. And in that sense I can say, ‘yes, I’m a feminist’,” Merkel told reporters after a meeting with Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. “For me, the word ‘feminism’ is linked to a specific movement which has fought a great deal to put these issues on society’s agenda,” said Germany’s first woman leader....
  • UK Charity Teaches Staff ‘White Women Reporting Rape By Black Men Support White Supremacy’

    In the wake of sex scandals that have rocked the British charity, an Oxfam staff training document says “privileged white women” are supporting the root causes of sexual violence by wanting “bad men” imprisoned. The Telegraph reports that the four-week ‘learning journey’ states that: “Mainstream feminism centres on privileged white women and demands that ‘bad men’ be fired or imprisoned”. Accompanied by a cartoon of a crying white woman, it adds that this “legitimises criminal punishment, harming black and other marginalised people”. The PowerPoint recommends staff read Me Not You: The Trouble with Mainstream Feminism, a book by Alison Phipps,...

  • Women to Benefit in ‘Feminist’ Boris Johnson’s Cabinet Reshuffle

    Boris Johnson considers himself a feminist and will promote more women to the cabinet in the next few months, No 10 said yesterday. The prime minister’s press secretary, Allegra Stratton, said there were “improvements to come” on the representation of women in government. Speaking on International Women’s Day, Stratton said Johnson had described himself as a feminist at a meeting with female MPs in the autumn. “In the months and years ahead, as he perhaps rearranges his top team, he will be mindful of making sure that that cabinet looks like the British public,” she said. Stratton added that Johnson...

    I’m really sick of every breathless new EXCLUSIVE, which basically recites the same few allegations of sexual “harassment” – unwanted, suggestive, flirtatious remark – but hardly the continuing campaign that one would think “harassment” (or “grooming”) implies. No one has charged Gov. Cuomo with extorting sexual favors, threatening anyone, or physically abusing or raping anyone. A hug and a request for a kiss at a wedding? If Cuomo really thought he was doing something wrong, would he do it in front of everyone? Doesn’t “harassment” imply ongoing abuse? Unless I have missed something, none of the five women have accused...

    In her recent Vogue essay, model Emily Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Model, actress, and radical feminist Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy in this month’s Vogue Magazine, writing an essay reflecting on the sex of her child.As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often...

    A lesbian activist has urged women to eliminate men from their minds and lives in a controversial new book that claims to provide the ultimate solution to female emancipation. Paris city Councillor Alice Coffin, has revealed in her debut book, Lesbian Genius, that she doesn't listen to music, read books, or watch films made by men and her partner Yuri also only consumes things that have been produced by women. Reflecting on feminism and lesbianism in the years since French feminist Simone de Beauvoir penned The Second Sex, she claimed that the only way for women to be truly emancipated...

    When the big media push behind the pro-gun-control Parkland students was still getting revved up last month, I called it a “Children’s Crusade.” That seemed appropriate because of the reverence the media was showing these often ignorant and occasionally offensive teenagers. Even back then, that impulse was clearly focused most intensely on Emma Gonzalez, the student whose “We call BS” speech CNN transcribed and spread with an evangelists zeal on its homepage. But today, the New Yorker has reached peak-Parkland-adulation with a piece titled “Joan of Arc and the Passion of Emma González.” The author isn’t directly comparing Gonazalez to...

    Bikini — and burkini — season is over here, but with the new school year, France’s battle over national identity has erupted on a new front: its history curriculum. School curriculums have long been a part of culture wars, including in the United States, where there have been tussles over slavery and evolution. But in France, where the state sets school programs nationwide, the country’s understanding of its past — and how it uses education to shape young citizens — has become a hot-button issue in a fraught election season. Changes to how Joan of Arc and other touchstone historical...

    A new biography on Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton reveals that during her time as First Lady, Clinton participated in strange moments of imaginary conversation with a deceased Eleanor Roosevelt from the solarium atop the White House. Grove City College professor Paul Kengor’s “God and Hillary Clinton” also notes the religious devotion with which Senator Clinton advocates abortion. An overview of the book by Kengor’s Grove City colleague Dr. Warren Thockmorton notes that the book - with information from friends, colleagues and acquaintances - paints an accurate picture of Clinton’s version of faith. The woman who arranged the séance-type sessions atop...

    There is no doubt that Emma Gonzalez, Cameron Kasky, and David Hogg, are engaged and trying to get their peers to be just as energized to strip gun rights in America. This is America. Pushing for the repeal the Second Amendment and other forms of gun control that will undoubtedly lead to gun confiscation is your run-of-the-mill liberal view on the subject. Yet, let’s not kid ourselves that Gonzalez, for example, is a Joan of Arc figure. She’s getting involved in the political process. That’s fine. It should be encouraged (even if she’s wrong), but “Joan of Arc,” really? That’s...

    Feminist author Jill Filipovic suggested that, after the 2020 presidential election, Democrats might want to commit to not including any white men in its field of candidates. "Whatever happens in November, what if all Democrats pledged that no white guys will run for president next cycle?" she tweeted on Monday. She also pushed back on people who wanted Democrats to choose the "best" candidate. "And yeah we all want the best candidates to run, but if that's your immediate response here, you're kind of telling on yourself that you don't think there are plenty of excellent candidates who aren't white...

    A little more than two weeks before I planned to meet the feminist theorist Sophie Lewis, her mother died. She had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in March, requiring Lewis to travel back and forth between her home in Philadelphia and a hospital in the UK—a journey she technically wasn’t allowed to make due to the pending status of her green card. When her mother passed away in late November, she did so thousands of miles away, while Lewis and her brother sang the Taylor Swift song “Safe and Sound” to her over Skype. Earlier that month, at a...

    I have a proudly progressive male friend who married a feminist some years ago who asked him to take her name. They didn’t end up going that route, but my friend seriously considered it. I thought of him when I read this recent article headlined, “He said ‘yes’! Why aren’t more women proposing to their boyfriends?” and when I came across this new Booking.com commercial that shows a woman proposing to a man. Both are examples of rejecting tradition in the name of sexual equality. When it comes to love and marriage, couples typically fall into one of two groups:...
