    THE GREATEST GIFT Human history has basically been the struggle for freedom.  And it has been a struggle against two things: 1.  Natural elements or "limitations" (such as starvation, thirst, disease, famine, cold, heat, predators, etc.) and 2.  Other humans. The natural elements that limit human freedom have been fought against (and largely won) with advances in technology, agriculture, economics, and science.  We've eliminated starvation and thirst through agricultural technology, cured diseases through medicine, and though we have yet to unlock the secrets of immortality, the majority of people today do not spend their time searching for a clean water...
  • Surprise! Ranger School Rigged For Females

    Patriot Update ^ | October 7, 2015 | Benny Huang
    Something about the story of the first two women ever to graduate from the Army’s prestigious Ranger course seemed hokey. I guess I’m always suspicious of “firsts.” Our society is so fixated on them that it creates an incentive to fudge facts and lower standards. Liberals will of course contest my assertion, though these are the same people who don’t really object to lowering standards in academia to get more minorities in the door, lowering them again to get them to graduate, then lowering them a third time to hire them as faculty members. Liberals don’t really oppose lowering the...

    As we noted in a previous post, when Hampshire College became the first institution of higher learning in the United States to shun SAT scores as an admissions requirement, the school’s president waxed rhapsodic about the diversity the change engendered. As it happens, Hampshire’s course catalogue is also rather diverse. Here is a sampling: • The emergence of literacy; • Philosophy of Education; • Intro to Tabletop Game Design; • Apprenticeship in Animal Communication Research; • The Social Psychology of Building Peace in the Context of Violent Intergroup Conflict; • Women in Game Programming; • Animal Behavior Theory; • Critical...

    The Telegraph ^ | 01 October 2015 10/04/2015 | Martin Daubney
    A new book claims that male office workers are now so afraid of being on the receiving end of a sexual harassment case, they are reluctant to mentor, assist, befriend and even hold open doors for female colleagues. Crushingly, the book, Sex & The Office suggests men now view such ordinary, decent behaviours as “too risky” – and, in what will be a bitter irony for equality campaigners – claims that, as a direct consequence, women are now failing to advance at work. This terror of being accused of sexual harassment is now so common it has its own term,...

Roe explains that she was sweating after the run and was approached by another woman in the coffee shop. “You look like you just did a class,” the woman said, smiling. “Or swimming?” she added. Roe responded, “Um, running. I just sweat a lot.” Ms. Roe then writes that in her ensuing embarrassment, she "took the paper cup of drip coffee and hustled past the condiment bar. Screw...

News has uncovered what the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum is asking as proceedings to make their split permanent get underway. In court documents obtained by E! News, Green follows Fox's lead and cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. In fact, the actor's response mimics Fox's divorce filing in almost every category including the desire for joint custody of their two children.

"I feel empathy with every woman who is working really hard and giving it all they've got – and Hillary is," the GOP presidential hopeful tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "She's smart, she's hardworking, she's giving it all she's got." Clinton, 67, and Fiorina, 61, first met when the former Hewlett-Packard CEO gave the commencement speech at Stanford University in 2001, the same year Clinton's daughter,...

    Well, it’s another day, so it’s time for another mind-blowing Donald Trump poll. The latest comes from CBS News/YouGov, and it gives El Trumpo a whopping 40 percent of likely GOP primary voters in New Hampshire. Trump also leads in Iowa with 29 percent; in South Carolina, he’s at 39 percent. If you’re a Trump skeptic, like me, at this point you might be tempted to give in, log into Trump’s online store, and buy a camouflage “Make America Great” hat—The Donald sported one during his recent “rock star” Iowa appearance—so that you can stealthily blend into the forest when...

Levy tells FOX 12 it’s all in response to a controversial comment trump made about FOX debate moderator Megyn Kelly. Following the Republican presidential debate on Fox News, Trump said of moderator Kelly: "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever." Levy says if trump thinks he can bring up a woman's period to insult their intelligence,...

    Many social sciences and humanities faculties in Japan are to close after universities were ordered to “serve areas that better meet society’s needs”. Of the 60 national universities that offer courses in these disciplines, 26 have confirmed that they will either close or scale back their relevant faculties at the behest of Japan’s government. It follows a letter from education minister Hakuban Shimomura sent to all of Japan’s 86 national universities, which called on them to take “active steps to abolish [social science and humanities] organizations or to convert them to serve areas that better meet society’s needs”.

Mr. Mabus, the civilian secretary who leads the Navy Department — including the Marine Corps — has called for the Navy to open combat jobs to women, and said the latest report may have been tainted by negative attitudes from the beginning. “They started out with a fairly largely component of the men thinking this is not a good idea, and women will not be able to do this,” he said in...

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert H. O'Brien granted Dixon's request for a stay of the results of a disciplinary process that was "lacking in due process, with no hearing, no right to counsel, no rules of evidence, no presumption of innocence, no right to possess copies of witness statements and evidence and no right to confront witnesses against him," according to Dixon's writ of administrative mandate.

So his initial reaction when told Friday about Donald Trump’s latest controversial remarks was one of puzzlement.

John believes he was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct, and Moon appears to agree. On Feb. 8, 2014, John and his eventual accuser, Jane Doe, met at an off-campus party. The two danced, talked and kissed. The two eventually went back to John's residence and talked for awhile. Jane then walked over to John and allegedly told him, "I usually don't have sex...

Black (and non-black) American activists scream that “Black Lives Matter” whenever a black criminal suspect dies in an altercation with police. In the meantime, there is scarcely a peep from either of these sectors when it comes to the unrelenting brutality suffered by women and black Africans in places under the thumb of the Islamic State.

Zimmerman begins her article by summarizing a recent case of a psychic swindling a man out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by telling him she could make a woman fall in love with him. The psychic wasn't completely at fault, Zimmerman writes, because men treat women like property and the hopelessly in love...

The whole business feels retrograde, a relic of some earlier, less inclusive era. I take food prep a little...

In an aptly named opinion piece, "White Feminists: Please Stop Using the Race Card," Oluo called out other feminist members. "I never thought I'd have to say this," Oluo begins her article, "but white people: stop using the race card. I'm serious. I'm getting sick and tired of the movement I've dedicated my life to being used as your weapon. I'm onto you -- I see what you're doing." Olou says that feminists are using race...

    (NOTE: PLEASE READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE) (snip) You get the idea. These young men were all on prescribed medication. Feminism helped to get them there. In particular, female teachers who either dislike men or are completely ignorant of healthy behaviour norms for boys are creating a generation of emotionally stunted, drugged up young men. Millions of young American men are prescribed powerful drugs after being diagnosed with the phantom condition “ADHD,” better known as a mixture of natural boisterousness and poor parental discipline. The mere fact of being male has become pathologised. When they get into their teens and early...

    In fairness to them, some of the reason for the upset is righteous. “Alexander Hamilton is not someone that people have a problem with,” said the director of the Women On 20s campaign. Why kick the great man off the currency instead of the far more dubious Andrew Jackson? I couldn’t agree more. But that’s not the only reason. Some feel that women are being, er, shortchanged:
  • A Woman on the $10 Bill? Big Deal

    With the announcement this week by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew that there will be a woman on the $10 bill, I found myself daydreaming about all the new equality that will presumably come with such a historic and meaningful honor. Because, surely, with all the current economic problems we're attempting to solve -- a still unstable job market, widening income inequality, rising poverty -- the United States government wouldn't waste its valuable time on some kind of empty symbolic gesture. Surely, putting a woman on a U.S. banknote will be an important step forward for gender equality and advancing women's...

    The Treasury Department is preparing to announce that they are putting a woman on the $10 bill, as a source has confirmed what appears to be a premature tweet. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce Thursday that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will put a woman on the bill as soon as 2020.

    Lyndsay Kirkham, a professor at Humber College, claimed two weeks ago that people who do not believe in "rape culture" are not humans. She eventually went on to claim that men arguing that rape culture doesn't exist "ARE RAPE CULTURE" and are only mad because they are "rapey rapists." Taking to Twitter, Kirkham got angry after another user asked her for proof that rape culture exists. Kirkham responded that proof was not needed and that if you "need 'proof' that rape culture exists, you are doing 'human' wrong:" ...Kirkham then said that men who deny rape culture "ARE RAPE CULTURE:"...

    A study released last month suggests that, regardless of actual personal actions or beliefs, men with facial hair are perceived as being more sexist than those without. Written by Rebekah Herrick, a professor at Oklahoma State University, the study showed candidates pictures of men in Congress with and without facial hair. They were also shown on a scale, including clean-shaven men, men with stubble, men with mustaches, and men with full beards. "Pictured members of Congress with facial hair were perceived by our student subjects as more masculine, and less supportive of feminist issue positions, although not more willing to...

    A new feminist organization calling itself "Stop Patriarchy" has vowed to destroy "Christian fascist woman-haters," as well as other things it claims oppress women, including Churches and the United States military. Writing on their website,, the group explains that their goal is to "FIGHT to STOP the enslavement of women." The way to do that, according to the feminist group, is to fight against and destroy oppressors. "Christian fascist woman-haters are violently hacking away at abortion rights and even birth control, slamming women backwards," they explain. Running from June 15 until June 19, the group is running a campaign...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- On social media and red carpets, from New York to China, hairy underarms are having a mainstream moment. Women are proudly showing off their growth on Instagram and YouTube, and it's not just Miley Cyrus anymore. Jemima Kirke of "Girls" flashed her fair-colored au naturel look - earning some cringes - at the June 1 CFDA awards, one of the top fashion events of the year.
  • “Islamaphobes” Are For Protecting Human Rights of Girls

    Do the name callers who label people “Islamaphobic” support Qur’an-instructed violence against women and girls?To be “anti-Islam” (and “anti-Shari’a”) is to reject submission to Allah and the Qur’an. To be anti-Islam is to be for protecting women’s rights and human rights. To be anti-Islam is to advocate for children who are powerless and voiceless, to liberate everyone enslaved by Islamic totalitarian ideology.There is nothing bigoted, racist, or fearful about opposing a political ideology that rejects universally accepted human rights laws.If the European Court on Human Rights has repeatedly ruled that Shari’a law is “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy,” then...
