  • Feminist Store Charges Men More for Items to Protest "America's Wage Gap"

    Pundit Press ^ | 4/17/15 | Aurelius
    A feminist activist has opened a store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that will charge men more than women to protest the "wage gap" she believes is badly hurting women in the United States. The store, which will only be operating in Pittsburgh from April 1 until April 30, is called "76<100." According to its website, "<100 is a traveling pop-up shop for gender wage equality. Each installment of the project offers work from exceptional women artists, makers, and entrepreneurs from throughout the US, priced to reflect the wage gap in it’s respective location." In Pittsburgh, men who enter the store will...
  • Virginia Tech engineering professor discusses gender-based violence in STEM fields

    Donna Riley, an engineering professor at Virginia Tech, visited the University Monday to discuss gender-based violence in science, technology, engineering and math fields. Riley discussed and analyzed the engineering, academic and broader U.S. cultures which work together to deny gender-based violence. Riley said gender-based violence not only includes rape, but also stalking, intimate partner violence, harassment, non-consensual sexual contact, verbal abuse and misogynist hate crimes. In the Survey of Academic Field Experiences published by science journal PLOS One in 2014, Riley said two-thirds of women surveyed reported being the victim of sexual harassment while researching in a scientific field, and...

    You can guarantee it. When Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic nominee next year, she and her team will frame the election as “historically significant”. In doing so, they will ignite a great social movement to elect the first Madame President. In the last twelve months, Secretary Clinton’s public speeches and commentary have discernibly shifted in focus and content, to female empowerment, pay equity and her “grandmother glow”. Never far away with a ready and helping hand, the media are showing their intent to advance the Clinton 2016 narrative. Just last month, following the conclusion of her prepared remarks at her...
  • Feminist Mag: Like Breasts? Then You're a Sexist

    A feminist magazine has declared that men who like breasts are sexist. In an article titled, “So You’re a ‘Breasts Man’? Here Are 3 Reasons That Could Be Sexist,” Jenika McCrayer explains why men who are sexually attracted to women with breasts are misogynists. McCrayer explains that “under a patriarchal system… we’re taught to believe that the female body exists solely for a man’s sexual pleasure and entertainment.” She then explains several reasons why liking breasts is a bad thing. First, “It Dangerously Conflates Attraction and Fetishization.” She explains, “breasts are not solely for aesthetic or sexual purposes. They have...

    In his first campaign for the presidency, then-Senator Barack Obama, D-Ill, declared that the phrase “culture war” was “so 90s.” Nevertheless, there are strong indications, seven years later, that the conflict is still with us, late and soon. “But ask yourselves this question: apart from conservatism, what have been the most important intellectual and social movements of the past forty years?” historian George Nash asked rhetorically at a meeting of the Philadelphia Society in Philadelphia last month. “As a historian I will give you my answer: feminism, environmentalism, and multiculturalism.” “Since the 1970s America has been moving Right and Left...

    When feminists sacrifice common sense for "reproductive choice," they deform the feminine genius and destroy the most vulnerable among us. [Photos: Wikipedia and us.fotolia.com | © igor] A “deformed male”—that was Aristotle’s definition of women nearly 2400 years ago. For centuries, women have tried to conquer the misconception that they were mis-conceived, as Aristotle described it, and to prove they are as good as men. The feminist movement was suppose to finally drive that point home into the hearts of women who doubted themselves and of the men who had long propped up the lie that women weren’t smart enough...

    NC Register ^ | March 29, 2015 | FATHER DWIGHT LONGENECKER
    Someone was joking recently that the reason the Eastern Orthodox cannot have women bishops is because one can’t call a woman “Patriarch.” Behind the wisecrack is some wisdom, and the existence of women ministers in non-Catholic denominations raises the question of just how patriarchal the Christian religion must be.  Is it necessary to call priests “Father” and refer to the Pope as “Holy Father”? The title “Abbot” comes from the ancient term “Abba-Father,” and “pope” comes from the Greek word pappas — “daddy.” Are these no more than human traditions? Are these just social constructs? Or is the idea of...

    Acceptance of gay marriage has long been a matter of when, rather than if -- in large part thanks to younger generations being overwhelmingly in favor.But just how quickly are views of homosexuality changing from generation to generation? A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute has some insights.The poll tested how millennials (ages 18 to 34) view various sexual behaviors, including homosexuality. And about equal numbers say homosexuality is morally wrong (38 percent) and morally acceptable (42 percent). Another 13 percent say it depends on the situation, while 7 percent declined to answer.What's most interesting, though, is when...

    According to a study released this month by Northeastern University in Boston, nonverbal cues such as smiling are sexist. The study's aim was to find types of sexism that are not readily apparent. Psychologist Jin Goh explained, "While many people are sensitive to sexist verbal offences, they may not readily associate sexism with warmth and friendliness." 27 pairs of men and women participated in the study. They were tasked with playing a trivia game and then talking afterwards. Scientists concluded that men who are nice to women are, in fact, actually sexist because they are tricking them into accepting the...

How’s that for maximizing the intellectual potential of my gender conformity?). But here, for your viewing pleasure is Paglia on Hillary Clinton, coattail rider and enabler of a sexual criminal, as she puts it without compunction.

A fake feminist demands that companies created by men hire more female CEOs. A real feminist starts her own company and makes herself the CEO.

    Today is Daylight Saving Time, where most of the United States turn our clocks ahead one hour. Today is also International Women's Day. Though not related, feminists on social media are making a connection between the two: Daylight Saving Time is taking away an hour from International Women's Day. And it's not just a coincidence either, according to these feminists. No, it's a conspiracy, likely put together by "white men" to keep women down.

    In the modern world many people rather casually assume, or assert, that the Apostle Paul was a misogynist based upon his teachings concerning the differing roles of men and women in the church and in marriage in the early church. What such critics fail to realize is that they are reading the Apostle Paul through the lens of a 21st century perspective, rather than the 1st century world to which Paul wrote originally. In the first century A.D., women were considered their husband's property, not their partner, and they had very few rights or protections. In that first century context,...

    The wording of the judgment is brutal. An appeal court judge has effectively told the ex-wife of a wealthy veterinary surgeon to “get a job, love” (my abbreviation). It is imperative, said the judge, “that the wife go out to work and support herself”. Tracey Wright, a 51-year-old former legal secretary, riding instructor and mother of two, has lost her appeal against a family court ruling to reduce the maintenance she receives in future from her former husband. The case is seen as a landmark ruling for ex-partners of wealthy spouses. The gravy train has come off the rails.

    Fifty Shades of Grey is about a steamy sexual relationship centered around bondage, dominance, and what fans call “discipline.” That is, the leading man’s “Red Room of Pain” includes physical abuse, whipping, electric cattle prods, hot wax, and other acts of torture. The feminists seeking to tear down traditional society by blaming all men for a mythical “rape culture” are now silent while Hollywood liberals simultaneously work hard to create one. Following a familiar Hollywood pattern of making deviancy and perversion acceptable and attractive to society and “defining deviancy down,” the double-meaning of the word “Grey” includes the leading character...

    Pope Francis, who presumably has not been woken up at 4 a.m. on a workday by the howls of a tiny human who wants to be fed and/or changed, says that couples who don’t want to have kids are “selfish” and are part of a “greedy generation.” Pope Francis told an audience in St Peter’s Square, Rome Wednesday that it’s a depressed society that considers children to be a burden. “A society with a greedy generation, that doesn’t want to surround itself with children, that considers them above all worrisome, a weight, a risk, is a depressed society,” he said....

    Bryn Mawr College, an all-women’s liberal arts school in Pennsylvania, clarified its admission policy on Monday to accept transwomen and individuals who “identify as women” when they apply. The Board of Trustees sent an email announcing that it had voted unanimously to update its admission rules, which were previously open to “female students only.”
  • Feminist Aborts Son because he was a Boy; “I Couldn’t Bring Another Monster into the World”

    In a stunningly evil and disgusting article, a feminist only willing to identify herself as “Lana” has described her decision to abort her child, based solely on the fact that he was a boy. Lana begins her article by explaining that “the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time,” and continues by writing about an argument she had with a man on an airplane, while she was pregnant, to summarize what she deemed “extreme patriarchy.” The description of the argument is straight forward: Lana was flying to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally....

    Fans of Fifty Shades Of Grey, you've been warned: leave those whips and riding crops at home on your way to the movies next week. AMC, Regal Entertainment and Cinemark have banned movie goers from bringing naughty props to the cinema in anticipation of the hotly awaited world premiere of Fifty Shades Of Grey. The film adaptation of EL James' steamy best-selling erotic romance starring Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele hits the big screen on Valentine’s Day, February 14.

    One of the great things about being married are the many instances where you broaden each other's cultural horizons. Having been married for almost four years now, I'm proud of how much Sister Babe's knowledge base has expanded. She can speak more intelligently about the Philadelphia Eagles' depth at the Tight End position than many Philly residents. She admitted that after enough exposure to some of the music that I listen to, when Black Sabbath comes on the radio it doesn't sound as heavy to her as it used to. She's been around enough WWE Pro Wrestling playing in the background...

    Brianna Wu, the little known Head of Development at the game development company "Giant Spacekat," has taken to twitter to express her hopes and wishes that one day women can own land and perhaps vote. The tweet, sent out this Wednesday, was hopeful that women would eventually gain rights in the United States to the point where they could actually vote: Eventually, Ms. Wu tried to play off the tweet as sarcasm: However, with hilariously uninformed and hate-filled tweets like these, it is not surprising that people didn't pick up on the supposed sarcasm:
  • Rethinking "Biblical Equality"

    Just Genesis ^ | January 3, 2015 | Alice C. Linsley
    When people speak of "Biblical equality" I am immediately suspicious of their interpretation of Scripture. Usually, on closer examination, I discover they are proponents of the complementarian doctrine, which imposes dualism on the Scriptures. The complementarian doctrine holds that men and women have different but complementary roles and responsibilities in marriage, family life, and religious leadership. It is a soft form of the egalitarian doctrine held by feminists. In both views women are granted the role of priest. Neither of these views aligns with Biblical doctrine on gender distinctions. Not a single priest named in Scripture was a woman. Since...

    You don’t usually here denunciations of “deranged neocons” on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, but HBO star Lena Dunham uncorked this attack on her Twitter enemies to Ryan Seacrest on the E! Network. Seacrest noted that her show “Girls” began its fourth season on Sunday night, and he asked if she would be checking for online reaction:(VIDEO-AT-LINK)LENA DUNHAM: I deleted Twitter because I tried to create a safer space for me emotionally. RYAN SEACREST: Explain. DUNHAM: People threaten my life and tell me what I cow I am, so I decided....I check it occasionally but it’s not the...

    Cardinal Raymond Burke at the extraordinary Synod on the Family in Rome in October 2014 (CNS photo) Kaya Oakes, a revert to Catholicism after spending time as a self-described pro-choice liberal, has penned a little screed—a veritable bundle of befuddlement!—aimed at the recent New Emangelization interview with Cardinal Raymond Burke (which I posted about on Monday). I've not read Oakes' book about her spiritual, uh, arc, which is titled, Radical Reinvention: An Unlikely Return to the Catholic Church, but my impression is that she has some—nay, numerous—issues with orthodoxy, or what she apparently calls "Catholic conservatism", which is in...

    My "Aha Moment" happened because of a package of hamburger meat. I asked my husband to stop by the store to pick up a few things for dinner, and when he got home, he plopped the bag on the counter. I started pulling things out of the bag, and realized he'd gotten the 70/30 hamburger meat - which means it's 70% lean and 30% fat.
