  • Taylor Swift: "Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born"

    In a newly released interview, Taylor Swift said that she believes “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." Ms. Swift was heavily criticized by feminists in 2012 when she stated that the word "feminist" was "too strong" a word to describe her. In the last three years, however, her opinions have changed. Today, Ms. Swift believes that feminism is “probably the most important" thing that women can get involved with. According to the young star, inequality is difficult to overcome because “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." She continued, “So to...

    Gloria Steinem is among 30 women activists marching from Beijing through the demilitarized zone dividing North and South Korea in a call for peace next Sunday. The event marks the International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament. The 81-year-old activist told Reuters that “it seems to me that the past of no contact has not worked,” invoking former President Ronald Reagan’s call to tear down the Berlin Wall. “We are saying: ‘Take down this isolation,’” she said, according to the report, which also notes that the organizers will meet with North Korean women and tour a maternity hospital, a women’s...

    Alexandra Svokos was six years old, growing up in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, when she became a Hillary Clinton fan. It was 1998, and Clinton had published Dear Socks, Dear Buddy, a collection of children's letters addressed to the first family's pets. Svokos became so obsessed with the book, she recalls, that she wrote her own letter—not to Socks the cat or Buddy the Labrador, but to Clinton herself. When she got a reply on official White House stationery with the first lady's signature, Svokos was thrilled. Clinton was an early feminist icon for many women of Svokos's generation—long before...

    It started shortly after I had my first child. I was leaving the building on the Upper West Side where we lived at the time and the doorman said “have a nice day, mom.” This man was approximately my age, so I was definitively not his mom. I was very new to being anyone’s mom, actually, and hearing that was jarring. To be fair, I’ve been called variations of “mother” well before I had children. I’ve had “hey mami” shouted at me from many a car window and more than one fine gentleman has asked me “what’s up, ma?” as...

    You might want to hold onto your money until you read some reviews. I am reading internet scuttlebutt that the new Mad Max movie is a feminist movie disguised as an action flick. Information is still sketchy as the movie has not yet been released. One DUmmie saw a full screening and posted how delighted he/she was that the movie was feminist as well as blamed men and the 1% for the collapse of society. (I won't post the link but you can find it easily enough. It is a newer post.) I read elsewhere that the director or producer...

    Even though Kate Bolick makes a solid case for older women on their own, the tropes and mindsets of the past are hard to overturn. “You are born, you grow up, and you become a wife.” “But what if it wasn’t this way?” asks Kate Bolick, the author of Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own. What if women did not have to worry about getting married, or agonize about when and if it will happen—two questions, Bolick claims, that will hound a young girl into her adult life, regardless of where she was raised, or her religious association. “Men...

    Comic-book movies have had a woman problem for, oh, forever. But this past week has been a particularly notable low for Marvel, which seems incapable of understanding that its superhero movies are laughably sexist. Let’s take a look back at the week of the studio’s tone-deafness: Marvel released the sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” last Friday to criticism over its portrayal of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. She was seen by many as overly domesticated and feminized — and grossly underrepresented in the movie’s action figures, a fact noted by “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo on Twitter.

    MEET THE VAGINA VOTERS: The women voting for Hillary because she’s a woman are setting feminism back a hundred years. “I intend to vote with my vagina.” Have you ever read a more squirm-inducing sentence than that? It appeared in a pro-Hillary piece in Dame magazine, written by a person with a vagina who intends to vote for Clinton because she also has a vagina. Let’s leave aside the unfortunate image conjured up by that sentence (“You can hold a pencil with that thing?!”) The bigger problem with such unabashed declarations of “vagina voting” is that they confirm the descent...

    An Oklahoma woman slashed the face of her boyfriend's dead ex-girlfriend while the body was on display at a funeral home, police say. Shaynna Smith, 28, of Tulsa was charged with illegal dissection of a body. She cut the dead woman's hair and slashed the face from her hairline to the tip of her nose during a viewing last Friday at Moore Funeral Home, according to Tulsa police. The woman, a 38-year-old whose cause of death was not disclosed, "once dated Smith's current boyfriend," Ashley said, but police did not know of a motive for the desecration. The dead woman's...

She admires its high level of “service to the community,” like showcasing a painting of an African American Virgin Mary collaged with female derričres lifted from pornographic magazines and real elephant dung. “Breaking the Glass Ceiling" by Cristina Biaggi is yet another masterpiece in the Brooklyn Museum’s collection.

To which I reply, “Haven’t you said that before?” About what exactly have the sexual revolutionaries been right? Which of their non-predictions has been confirmed?

    Fathers and Daughters – Is This a Missing Key to Modesty Today? By: Msgr. Charles PopeWe often speak today of the terrible toll that fatherless homes have on young boys. And this is true. Without a reasonably good (even though not sinless) model of manhood and responsibility, many boys lose their way. Fathers also play a large role in disciplining boys, especially as they grow older and become  stronger than their mothers.But missing fathers also bring forth terrible effects on many girls. Women, even young girls, certainly do seek and desire the love and appreciation of men and have...

    Even if a woman consents to have sex with another adult, according to Guardian author Gaby Hinsliff, it's still likely rape. In an article titled "Consent is not enough: if you want a sexual partner, look for enthusiasm," Ms. Hinsliff argues that, even if a woman says she would like to have sex with you, if she does not do it enthusiastically, you are a rapist. Hinsliff's subtitle reads, "The furore over rape prosecution guidance from the CPS shows we need a new understanding of sexual relationships." The article goes on to argue that men are still rapists even if...

Since he either can't or won't tell us who asked the question, we're unable to determine if the "reporter" to whom Miller referred was asking the question because he or she doesn't know the Constitution or was trying to bait Rubio into giving an answer implicitly or explicitly criticizing other candidates.

    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...

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...

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.

    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...

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...

Eleanor Holmes Norton Doesn’t Think We Have the Right to Know When Our President Is Selling Us Down the River Totalitarian Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting House Delegate from D.C. believes the American people and their representatives in Congress haven’t the right to know all that is going on in government. “You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government,” claimed Norton. “That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government.” Norton’s statements were made in reference to subpoenas created by Congressman Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. According to Norton,...

    To­day is a #freethenip­ple day in Ice­land, a day in which a fem­i­nist wave has swept the coun­try. The day was par­tic­u­larly cel­e­brated in Reyk­javik's Uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges and an end­less amount of women tweeted their sup­port, and their nip­ples, in­clud­ing an MP. Here's a look at the day in pic­tures in which women went bra­less or top­less to show their sup­port. The in­ter­na­tional #freethenip­ple cause ad­dresses equal rights for men and women, a more bal­anced view of cen­sor­ship and the rights for all women the world over to breast­feed in pub­lic.

    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...
  • Feminist Group Warns: Clapping is "Triggering," Use "Jazz Hands" Instead

    The NUS Women's Campaign, which states that it "exists to represent and extend and defend the rights of women students," is asking people to be "mindful" about clapping, as the loud noise could be "triggering" for some people. Instead, the group is asking members to use "jazz hands," as they are silent. This is not a joke. This is the actual tweet that went out:

She tells what happened on her yearlong sex odyssey in her memoir "The Wild Oats Project."</p> <p>I broke the news to Scott that I wanted an open marriage in early 2008, a few months after his vasectomy. “I won’t go to my grave with no children and four lovers,” I told him repeatedly. “I refuse.”</p>
  • Video: Camille Paglia’s rant on the “mess” that is Hillary Clinton

    I like Camille Paglia. She’s ornery and interesting, not subservient to the orthodoxies so stultifying to other public intellectual academic types of her acclaim. Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie did an hour-long interview with the woman herself, and the whole thing is worth a watch (Or listen, as I did, while cleaning my house. 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. It’s worth it just for the Rock-style eyebrow lift and Gillespie’s...

    UNITED NATIONS — Making a dramatic statement in Korean relations, Gloria Steinem and other prominent women on Wednesday announced their intention to walk across the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to call for reunification. The DMZ is the world's most fortified border, with the two countries still technically at war. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers face off across the heavily mined zone. Organizers of the effort called WomenCrossDMZ.org on Wednesday said they hope for 30 women, including two Nobel Peace laureates, to cross from North Korea to South Korea on May 24, which is International Women's Day...

    Tere's a growing movement to make girls' toys less girly. Petitions have been signed and complaints lodged — sometimes even by those as young as 5 — about why girls deserve more than princesses and pink. And toy companies are beginning to listen, offering educational or scientific toys marketed to girls. The latest: a new LEGO collection of female scientist figures. That's great news! But here's the thing: Boys deserve more variety too.
  • Why do feminists care how many Fortune 500 CEOs are female?

    It doesn’t make any sense to care how many Fortune 500 CEOs are female. Instead, what does matter is how many of the Fortune 500 companies were started by a woman in the first place. 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.

    National Review ^ | March 12, 2015 | Stuary Taylor Jr.
    A movement is afoot to destroy the career of a young black man whom a young white woman with overwhelming, well-documented credibility problems has accused of raping her. Three separate investigations, including a Florida State Code of Conduct hearing, have found former Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston not to be a rapist. But now The Hunting Ground, a much-touted documentary on previously anonymous accuser presenting her case publicly for the first time. Senator Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) has warned that NFL teams had better “watch this movie before they draft him.”
