    NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Andraya Yearwood hears the comments, usually from adults and usually not to her face. She shouldn’t be running, they say, not against girls. Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, is one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female. She recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender...

    NewsGuard, the browser plug-in that purports to separate real news from fake news and which, unlike most plug-ins, is included in Microsoft’s mobile Edge browser by default only requiring user activation, rated the exact same story about mainstream media journalist Lara Logan encouraging people to read news outlets from across the spectrum as fake on Breitbart News, but reliable on other websites. During a podcast interview, Logan claimed the media was “mostly liberal.” “The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” she proclaimed, adding, “Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense —...

    Television journalist Lara Logan poked the mainstream media beehive last week in a no-holds-barred interview where she bluntly accused many reporters of becoming “political activists” and even “propagandists” for the Left and said journalism has descended into “absolute horses**t.” The response has been furious, personal, and devoid of the respect normally demanded for rape survivors.Lara Logan is a rape survivor in the most literal no-horsesh**t sense of the term. She was assaulted by a mob in Cairo while covering the Arab Spring uprising in February 2011 for CBS News and could easily have been killed. She has made it clear...

    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for women to get more involved in social movements because men have been "getting on my nerves." "Women, in particular, by the way, I want you to get more involved," Obama said while hosting a town hall for young African leaders in South Africa. "Because men have been getting on my nerves lately. I mean, every day, I read the newspaper and I just think like, brothers what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us? Obama added that "empowering more women on the continent" would "lead to some better policies" right away....

    Sarah Palin: Andrew Breitbart Helped Me Defend Myself When Fox News Wouldn’t Let Me on Air After Giffords Shooting The late Andrew Breitbart helped Sarah Palin defend herself when Fox News Channel’s former Chairman Roger Ailes denied her the opportunity to respond on air to the media’s false accusations framing her for inciting the attempted assassination of former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords (D-AZ) in the days immediately following the 2011 Tucson mass shooting incident.

    A student at the University of California San Diego has been contacted to report to its Office for the Prevention of Harassment & Discrimination after hanging pro-Kate Steinle posters across the campus. On the evening of Dec. 7, Gregory Lu hung 150 posters of Steinle’s smiling face with the words “She had dreams too” in highly traversed areas across campus that other students typically hang items on, such as bulletin boards and the free speech area. Four days later, an investigator with the Office for the Prevention of Harassment & Discrimination emailed Lu asking to meet with him. “Our office...

    Progressives a women problem. On Thursday, KABC anchor Leeann Tweeden reported that Sen. Al Franken sexually assaulted her during a USO tour in 2006, adding the former comedian's name to a growing list of left-wing activists who stand accused of sexually abusing women. The list, which we've compiled below, includes politicians, media titans, Hollywood producers, directors, and actors, as well as other prominent progressives. Progressives, of course, market themselves as being on the front-lines of the women's rights movement; indeed, the feminist political movement is encompassed within the larger progressive political ideology. Which makes these alleged abusers not only guilty...

    The Labor Day message from First Lady Melania Trump that was posted to social media was about 18 words long, but that didn’t stop Melania’s detractors from letting their feelings be known to Mrs. Trump. As seen on the Instagram page of FLOTUS, Melania passed on a message about honoring workers in the U.S. for contributing to the prosperity of the country. ““On this #LaborDay2017 we honor American workers for their many contributions to the prosperity of these United States.”” Within a short time, Melania began receiving all sorts of replies from her Instagram followers. Whereas some of Melania’s Instagram...

    'She talks a good game, but there's no substance': Dame Helen Mirren bashes Ivanka Trump and her 'ignorant' book, but highlights Melania's 'power' - and her ability to 'bring her husband down'. Dame Helen Mirren has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, and the actress didn't hold back when it came to sharing his thoughts on his daughter's 'ignorant' book about working women. Although Ivanka Trump has branded herself as a feminist who is dedicated to empowering women, 72-year-old icon and advocate for women's rights told Allure that she isn't buying it.

    (CNN) — American journalist Julia Ioffe slammed the Trump administration's plan to curb legal immigration calling it "very restrictive" and part of a formula that would "provide the right kind of demographic engineering," for his base. Ioffe said first lady Melania Trump initially came to America on an H-1B visa, one of the visas the government is now working to restrict. "When you ask Trump supporters, they don't care because she's a different -- she's the right kind of immigrant." "She is a beautiful white woman from Europe, and we like those.

    The New York Times published an editorial Wednesday evening about the attack on Republicans earlier that day in which it claimed falsely that Sarah Palin incited the 2011 Tucson shooting, and that the killer had political motives......At the time, Palin called the false accusations against her a “blood libel,” and for good reason: it was a slander imputing responsibility to her for the deaths of innocents, with the sole purpose of punishing her for her beliefs. The Times goes on to argue that “there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack” in Wednesday’s shooting. That statement...

    The level of vitriol she has received from mostly male commentators as she has shared her thoughts about the election's results - with one journalist telling her to "shut up and go home" - has been on par with that she was subject to during the campaign itself. And since almost all of the most prominently circulated political journalists are men, it's worth asking if most men, regardless of background, possess the analytical capacity to provide an accurate assessment of what happened to Secretary Clinton's candidacy independent of their deeply ingrained socialized biases.

    The 53-year-old former politician, who served as the governor of Alaska from 2006 until resigning in 2009 and was the Republican party vice presidential nominee in the 2008 election, wrote an impassioned Facebook post on Friday slamming the comedian. Her words come after Griffin, 56, gave a tearful press conference earlier in the day — apologizing again for holding up a decapitated head of President Donald Trump in a gag gone wrong and claiming the 70-year-old former businessman and his family were “bullying” her and “trying to ruin [her] life forever.” “I don’t think I will have a career after...

    In a 1998 press interview, Steinem weighed in on the Clinton impeachment hearings when asked whether President Bill Clinton should be impeached for lying under oath, she was quoted as saying, "Clinton should be censured for lying under oath about Lewinsky in the Paula Jones deposition, perhaps also for stupidity in answering at all." In a March 22, 1998 Op/Ed piece in the New York Times, she effectively gave support to the notion that a man may: (1) uninvited, open-mouth kiss a woman; (2) uninvited, fondle a woman's breast; and (3) uninvited, take a woman's hand and place it on...
