More Anti-Religion Crap from the Left

    Amanda Marcotte is a feminist blogger and “journalist” best known for her feminist/Leftist views.  She was a very vocal voice during the Duke lacrosse team controversy and allegations of rape.  Even though the charges were dropped and the prosecutor eventually disbarred, in the mind of Marcotte the lacrosse players were still guilty.  Illustrative of the hypocritical and bizarre mind of the Leftist, while decrying this | Read More »

    Bring Back Chivalry and Solve #YesAllWomen

    We are told by the Progressive Left that blanket statements are bad such as not all worshipers of Islam are violent as the 29 terrorists who killed Americans on 9/11 for example. We can’t say all democrats hate the military. We aren’t allowed to suggest that all ACLU lawsuits are aimed at undermining Christian rights in public environments. And we certainly aren’t allowed to suggest | Read More »

    Why are Republicans Promoting a Left-Wing Feminist Museum?

    Why are Republicans Promoting a Left-Wing Feminist Museum?

    As we’ve noted a number of times, Republicans have used their majority to pass these ridiculous “suspension” bills that are often bad policy instead of exclusively bringing conservative legislation to the floor.  The latest misfire is an attempt by a number of Republicans to pass a bill granting The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) a physical location on the National Mall. One of the biggest | Read More »

    Don’t Do Away with Knights and Courage

    “Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.  Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.” – C.S. Lewis. My favorite stories growing up were always Disney stories that told of beautiful princesses, evil stepmothers, gruesome witches, and a dashing prince coming to save the day.  That last character | Read More »

    Reports from the front line in the War on Wives

    No sooner did I write about the War on Wives than a member of the American aristocracy walked right into the crossfire.  We do indeed have an aristocracy – people who are allowed to be fabulously wealthy without facing a single word of class-war criticism, and whose every utterance is given enormous weight by media courtiers.  Many of these aristocrats can be found in Hollywood. | Read More »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »
