  • Feminist Internet: Witchcraft Is Sexist and Transphobic

    According to Social Justice Internet, there is a “sexism problem in the modern witchcraft community” and you should be very, very, very concerned for all of the witches it’s impacting. “Witchcraft may be a woman-centric lifestyle, but it still exists in a man-centric world — which means that sexism is, of course, an issue,” Jaya Saxena writes in her very important piece for the website Mic.

    Toward the end of the century, Westerners who fled their home countries to fight in Afghanistan or Bosnia shared a common characteristic: They were practically all men. Today’s militant recruits, however, represent a dramatic demographic shift. Most are just entering adulthood. They often meet terrorists online. They’ve asked in covert chats: Do you have hair dryers, or should I bring one? One in seven are women, according to a new report. An estimated 4,500 Westerners have ditched home for the Islamic State or other Sunni jihadist groups in Syria or Iraq. Researchers at New America, a nonpartisan think tank in...

    Some commentators like to point out that many of the most passionate and bravest defenders of the West are women, citing Italian writer Oriana Fallaci and others as examples. But women like Ms. Fallaci, brave as they might be, are not representative of all Western women. If you look closely, you will notice that, on average, Western women are actually more supportive of Multiculturalism and massive immigration than are Western men. I got many comments on my posts about Muslim anti-female violence in Scandinavia. Several of my readers asked what Scandinavian men are doing about this. What happened to those...

"I think it’s a mistake," Mary Jo Piccin told CBS4’s Tom Mustin. "I think the police need to be able to chase down them criminals." Last Friday the Colorado Springs Police Department agreed to the demands of 12 female officers who filed a civil suit claiming the fitness tests are discriminatory. All the officers were over the age of 40.

She said she heard this quote and knew what she had to do: "Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Thus, Boyd told the Huffington Post, she wanted to be the "sluttiest" thing possible and the "most hush hush thing you could be while at the same time chipping away at double standards in our society:" a vagina.

    The Ranger School records story refuses to die, as the Army continues to obstruct Congressman Steve Russell’s investigation into whether three female graduates have been given special treatment at Ranger School. Key points in the story: Congressman Russell contacted the Secretary of the Army on September 15, 2015, and requested the Ranger School records for Captain Kristen Griest and First Lieutenant Shaye Haver. The Secretary of the Army stalled Russell for nine days and then asked for an extension to obtain documents readily available. The Army waited another two weeks to tell Russell the documents had been shredded. The Army...

    With the new movie about the British suffrage movement, Suffragette, scheduled to be released this week, recollections of protest and debate concerning a woman's right to vote in the U.S. are inevitable. As the 19th century ended and the 20th began, the American wave of women pushing for access to the ballot box gathered momentum. But it wasn't until the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified in 1920 that voting rights were guaranteed for all women. Hard as it is to imagine today, there were certain women mostly forgotten during that period of duress who did not...

    http://hotair.com/archives/2015/10/23/end-of-discussion-anti-feminism-speech-at-williams-college-canceled-following-student-uproar/ This is hysterical, insane nonsense. Having the option of listening to a dissenting voice against the Lefts prevailing orthodoxy on gender roles in no way represents an imposition of harm, let alone physical harm. Such intolerant, sub-moronic delirium must be aggressively defied and mocked, not coddled and indulged. Event planners warned Venker that her upcoming address was stirring a lot of angry reactions among students on campus, prior to its eventual cancellation. Williams had never experienced this kind of resistance to a speaker, she was informed. On Americas college campuses, the hecklers veto is a distressingly effective method of...

In a cultural moment in which we're so far past superhero saturation that a greasy layer of superhero residue seems to be building up on every medium, Marvel still gets gloaty that by tacking the words "and the Wasp" onto an Ant-Man sequel, it had its first Marvel Studios release named after its heroine.

    "A big part of that stagnancy could be business development, or winning new business in general. The sales culture and sales mentality is what leads to the upper echelons of compensation and status at firms, and it could be that women aren't successfully breaking into those roles. What we can say from evidence in the study is that new adviser positions that carve out these responsibilities, such as business development officer or business development specialist, are overwhelmingly male (96% for partners and 72% for employees), which underscores the fact that these responsibilities or opportunities aren't necessarily being embraced by or...

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...

    Navy Secretary Ray Mabus criticized Friday the findings of a new Marine report that all-male combat units perform better on a number of tactical tasks than mixed-gender units. 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...

    A California judge has ordered the University of Southern California to stay its expulsion of football player Bryce Dixon, who was expelled late last year for alleged sexual assault. 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. Dixon's expulsion comes from...

    Erick Erickson knows what its like to be in the crosshairs over an intemperate remark. An influential conservative blogger and former CNN contributor, hes taken heat over the years for accusing a Supreme Court justice of bestiality and joking that God had a sense of humor when he created feminists. So his initial reaction when told Friday about Donald Trumps latest controversial remarks was one of puzzlement. But by the end of the evening, he was leading the charge against the Republican frontrunner over his attitude towards women. Erickson had just returned from a family dinner to the Grand Hyatt...

    <snip> Judge Norman K. Moon denied W&L's motion to dismiss the lawsuit, allowing John Doe as he is referred to in the claim to continue to seek damages resulting from his expulsion from the university. 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...

    ATLANTA Michael Pemberton, a 65-year-old conservative from Kentucky, started the day in a good mood. He was attending his second RedState Gathering, and ready to hear from 10 of the Republican Party's presidential candidates. He dug into breakfast coffee and fruit and sat down with another conference-goer. "One of the chaps across me asked, 'Did you hear the news?'" recalled Pemberton. "I thought he was going to tell me that a sinkhole opened up in Kentucky and I couldn't go again. But no: He said, they disinvited Donald Trump. I lost my appetite." The TV news confirmed...

I was brought up by people born in the 1920s. I hold a door for a woman and I tip my fedora to them. I dont believe in talking about women in the crass way that our culture does today.

    Feminists and other progressives in America cry oppression at the mere suggestion that taxpayers shouldnt be made to subsidize abortion services. 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. When I noted this selective outrage to a left-leaning colleague of mine, he responded that the one issue didnt have anything to do...
