Bonnie Erbe stands up for conservative women, except for the one who isn’t white.
She had it coming, you see. (Also via Hot Air Headlines) You know, Michelle Malkin and I have some serious policy disagreements in a couple of areas, particularly on immigration issues – I am confident that she’d call me a pro-amnesty squish, mostly because by her definition I am – so keep that in mind when I suggest to Ms. Erbe that she did Smart | Read More »
Feminist Grammar That Isn’t
Feminists are in essence an anti-intellectual lot. After all, the back flips they have to do to justify their anti-male crusade is an act worthy of Olympics style awards. Such are the illogical back bends that feminists must to do to justify their ideology that men become wholly unnecessary, biology and nature be damned. There are many intellectual outrages to education and tradition that feminists | Read More »
Today Show Feature: ‘There’s No Such Thing as Virginity’
Jessica Valenti, founder of the vaguely pornographic sounding Feministing.com, has decided that there is no such thing as virginity in America’s young girls and the Today Show is entirely pleased with itself to give her a national TV venue from which to say so. Never mind how silly it all sounds. On April 22 Valenti and Today pushed the idea that sexually active girls should | Read More »
Besides, that cardboard cutout was *totally* asking for it.
What was that? You think that the title trivializes sexual assault? Folks, at this point the Left has already trivialized this offense down to the bedrock: At the exact moment Jon Favreau is receiving high praise in pre-inaugural media puff pieces, the 27-year-old chief speechwriter for President-elect Barack Obama (not Jon Favreau, the Hollywood actor/ director) finds himself in a minor mess over a photo | Read More »
The Apex Fallacy
I have conducted scores of interviews since 2003, but rarely did one alter my worldview. Yet that was precisely what occurred during my exchange with Dr. Helen Smith. Her answer to my second question led to my coming up with a new term for the fallacious way by which feminists comprehend the nature of our social structure. The phrase “Apex Fallacy” sprung to mind as | Read More »
Barack Obama to Rehabilitate Larry Summers?
I have had it reported to me – at third hand, which means that you can ignore the rest of this post forthwith with no complaints from me, if you like – that Senator Barack Obama is thinking about offering the Secretary of the Treasury position in his hypothetical administration to former Harvard President Laurence Summers. He’s one of Obama’s economic advisors, which certainly puts | Read More »
In the past I’ve addressed the matter of chivalry, but never in a fully satisfactory manner. I decided to take up the matter today. The full scope of my new commentary can be seen here. It’s essential that we address the topic again…and again as the situation of modern man has not changed. Equality and Chivalry cannot coexist in a just society, in my view. | Read More »
Why Feminists Hate Palin
The feminist ‘comedienne’ Sandra Bernhard is reported to have declared recently that if Sarah Palin went to New York City, she would be gang-raped by blacks. This is just another in the ongoing stream of attacks against Palin by the political left and particularly by feminists. These are the same feminists who have told us that they “care about” women, children, the global village, the | Read More »
This is my first diary entry so please be gentle, my thoughts are a bit scattered today. “Feminism directly confronts the idea that one person or set of people [has] the right to impose definitions of reality on others,” ~ Liz Stanley and Sue Wise.
When she accepted the nomination, they scoffed. They thought the Republicans were desperate, and perhaps we did too. Obama thought it was too easy, so he told the Americans far and wide that Palin’s family was off-limits. But American women everywhere quickly realized that this was no average female politician. Her name? Governor Palin! And even though she struggles with 5 kids and a hubby, | Read More »
Camille Paglia nails one
Camille Paglia claims the kind of personal beliefs that I find quite objectionable – Obama-supporting, pro-choice, atheist, drug legalization, etc. But it seems like every time I read her stuff, I find myself intrigued by her points. And her article today is no exception. She displays stunning insight about the DNC and GOP conventions, the Palin nomination, and her credentials as a “brand new style | Read More »
Democratic Analysis of Hillary and Sarah: Heroine and Whore
Hat tip to Moe Lane at Redstate for pointing me to Michelle Cottle’s convoluted reasoning at The New Republic concerning Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. Titled ‘Shattered’, it starts out asking the big question for everyone on the Left, “Can someone please tell me what the hell happened?” Obama supporters want the answer to offer substance to go with the stuff they’ve been shoveling. They | Read More »
Sally Quinn Recants
Jennifer Rubin posts on something that’s a truly significant moment: The great Sally Quinn recants her position on Sarah Palin. Quinn had been one of Palin’s biggest critics in the days leading up to her speech (read her column here). But yesterday in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, she declared: “I was wrong about her.” I thought that she was amazing. in her speech. She | Read More »
My (brief) views on Feminism
I love that Senator McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. This, in my humble opinion, represents the continuation of true feminism. It is a chance for the women of the United States to see all of the perspectives of feminism. It is a chance for the American people to really review their thoughts on feminism. Is feminism simply a pro-choice outlook? I don’t | Read More »
Liberal Feminism Has Created Superwoman
Liberal Feminism has created Superwoman. We’ve all heard stories of how the liberal jewel that is feminism just does not work out. After 30 odd years of telling women they can have it all, the liberal female story is still the same. According to the left there is still not equal pay for equal work, women may be able to tap the glass ceiling, but | Read More »
