Real Feminism Vs. Realpolitik in Texas

    Wendy Davis needs a man like a fish needs a rich bicycle that will pay its way through fish law school and take full custody of its spawn.

    (HT: Exjon via Instatpundit.)

    Hard luck stories provide emotional cover to incompetent fools. These are the type of bad, faithless people who should not be elected to any office greater than being a local dog-catcher. We discover that as people have begun to delve into the tear-jerking reproduction of Les Miserables being presented as a Curriculum Vita by Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis. The good news story here is that we learn of these inconvenient truths about poor Wendy Davis before she gets empowered to make any important decisions. After all, it probably isn’t wisdom to entrust great power to somebody because you feel sorry for them.

    The single woman society

    The Virginia governor’s race was yet another example of the massive voting gap in a huge demographic: single people, particularly single women.  According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli won handily on the “hard” issues facing Virginia voters, and won most other demographic slices, but Democrat Terry McAuliffe won big with single people, crushing Cuccinelli by nearly fifty points among single women. A similar dynamic could be | Read More »

    Practice “Freedom Feminism”

    Imagine a stranger coming up to you and saying, “I’m not trying to insult you, but you’re ugly.” Wouldn’t you be upset? The example may sound farfetched, but it’s exactly what two Baylor Lariat columnists have done over the past two weeks. In her column (“Ring-by-spring stereotype goes both ways,”) Lariat staff writer Maleesa Johnson implores readers to “please do not read this [article] as me | Read More »

    On The “Lady Bro”

    Interesting piece. If you’re going to copy men, how about emulating the best parts of men? Because getting drunk and eating live goldfish isn’t “topping gender roles,” it’s just acting like a drunken spaz. I’m a student at Princeton, and before I even arrived on campus my freshman year, I heard the Tiger Inn stories: competitive projectile vomiting, harmonious chanting of “tits for beer,” and naked | Read More »

    Hyper-sexualized, asexual America

    The FDA wants 15-year-old girls to get morning-after birth-control drugs over the counter, without the knowledge or consent of either parents or doctors.  President Obama says he approves of this decision.  But birth-control activists say it doesn’t go far enough.  They want the requirement for teenage purchasers to show photo ID dropped, and they’d really like to see 11-year-old girls getting these pills. Behind this | Read More »

    ‘Brainwashing’ Accusations by the Brainwashed on Supreme Court Steps

      Folks, if you were worried that the upcoming generation might be a little wiser and smarter, then fear no longer. I have video proof illustrating stupidity cloaked in extreme self-belief is alive and well. The following illustrates a comical yet sad case of irony at its best… or worst, depending how you look at it. In the parenthesized video link a young lady is | Read More »

    The resilience of natural law

    Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, has a new book entitled “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.”  The book, building off a popular speech she gave in 2010, encourages women to stop holding back their career ambitions and push hard for success, using decisions from Sandberg’s own life as examples. Reviewing the book at Fox News, Suzanne Venker, vice president of | Read More »

    When Did Success Become Anathema to Feminists?

    We live in a two income household nation, and the days of men being the sole breadwinners are dying.  Women are the majority of wage earners, and if the trends continue, they’ll become the main income earners by 2030.  So, women have made massive strides in the socio-economic landscape, and that’s a good thing.  However, when it comes to successful women, feminists can’t stand them. It seems idiotic. | Read More »

    Violence Against Women?

    Liberals have always held a bifurcated view of women and their need for government protection.  On the one hand, they seek to use the boot of government to obliterate every last inherent difference between the genders, even in the most physical manifestations.  On the other hand, they use big government programs to grant superfluous rights to women, as if they needed government to protect them | Read More »

    Roe v. Wade at Forty

    Next week will mark the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that struck down numerous state laws against abortion. To celebrate, I went back and read yet again the actual decision, the concurrences and the dissenting opinions in that case. Like all the previous times, I cannot help but notice how largely devoid of constitutional jurisprudence the | Read More »

    The Woman Vote: The Deeper Message for Women in America

    I’ve been living in a house with a majority rule swinging in the favor of three women for most of my life. My dad passed away when I was fifteen years old, and since then I’ve been sharing a bathroom, living room, television, computer, and most of the world with a mother, and two sisters. My living circumstance from age 15-21 I’m sure aren’t unique | Read More »

    Indeed There is a War on Women

    Let’s confront an inconvenient truth.  There is a war on women being waged in this country – one that cuts to the core of the ethos war that is being directed at our founding values.  And that war on women is being prosecuted by none other than Barack Obama’s party of Sandra Fluke. Leftists have always been masters of projection – decrying the deeds of | Read More »

    Abortion is NOT a Women Issue

    Seizing upon the Akin controversy, the Democratic Convention- a/k/a Obama Lovefest ’12- will feature some, um, interesting speakers. Besides the likely inclusion of First Lady and First Stumpjumper, Michelle Obama, they have former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm whose achievements as Governor are dubious at best, yet she continues to be mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee should a vacancy occur. Then there is Congresswoman | Read More »

    Barack Obama: STILL not paying women as much as men?

    Via @mkhammer comes this latest example of Do As I Say, Not As I Line-Item Budget from the Obama administration. Executive summary: the Obama administration is allegedly paying its female staffers roughly 18% less than its male ones. I’m using the term ‘allegedly’ because the original report did not separate out staffers by gender, forcing “some assumptions to be made based on the employee names” | Read More »
