  • Less than half of U.S. kids today live in a ‘traditional’ family

    Pew Research Fact Tank ^ | December 22, 2014 | Gretchen Livingston
    Less than half (46%) of U.S. kids younger than 18 years of age are living in a home with two married heterosexual parents in their first marriage. This is a marked change from 1960, when 73% of children fit this description, and 1980, when 61% did, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of recently-released American Community Survey (ACS) and Decennial Census data. Rapid changes in American family structure have altered the image of who’s gathering for the holidays. While the old “ideal” involved couples marrying young, then starting a family, and staying married till “death do they part”, the...

    A feminist activist ran topless through St Peter's Square and rushed the nativity scene before attempting to flee with the baby Jesus figurine. The woman, who had the words 'God Is Woman' written on her chest, started her protest just one hour after Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message. Thousands of pilgrims were still standing in the famous square when the woman, who is a member of Femen, was ambushed by a guard on her way off the platform. She was quickly arrested by officers from the Vatican police.

    There could be an unlikely contributor to the decline of marriage in this country. And it's free pornography on the Internet. A team of researchers, who published their findings in The Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Germany, determined that the rise of free Internet pornography is not only correlated with a pronounced decline in percentage of young adult males who are married, but might actually be contributing to the trend. "The results in this paper suggest that such an association exists, and that it is potentially quite large," the study notes. The researchers used data from the...

    Subway Manspreaders Told: Close Your Legs And Let Other People Ride Poster campaign will attempt to stop antisocial practice Doctors say crossing legs will not affect reproductive powers. Amanda Holpuch Saturday 20 December 2014 Comments As 2014 comes to an end, one thing New York commuters can expect in 2015 is an official city campaign against a growing problem: “manspreading”. Manspreading is the act or practice – typically male – of spreading one’s legs in a manner which prevents others from occupying nearby seats on the subway, commuter train or bus. A Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) spokesman, Kevin Ortiz, described...

    It is the bane of many female subway riders. It is a scourge tracked on blogs and on Twitter. And it has a name almost as distasteful as the practice itself. It is manspreading, the lay-it-all-out sitting style that more than a few men see as their inalienable underground right. Now passengers who consider such inelegant male posture as infringing on their sensibilities — not to mention their share of subway space — have a new ally: the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Taking on manspreading for the first time, the authority is set to unveil public service ads that encourage men...

    The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential ^ | December 17, 2014 | Ashe Schow
    California’s “yes means yes” law turns the idea of sexual consent upside down. Suddenly, nearly all sex is rape, unless no person involved reports it as such. Consent, under the California law that is spreading to other American universities, is required to be “ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time.” The law also states that “a lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent.” Also, previous sexual activity “should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.” The law also states that incapacitation due to drugs...

    In an article published by the Guardian, Jess Zimmerman suggested that all men should be murdered. In the same article, she stated that prejudice against men is a good thing. The article, called “No, we don’t literally want to ban men. But 2014 was the year women got even,” begins with a sarcastic opening paragraph mocking males. It quickly descends further into madness. In the second paragraph, Zimmerman states that “misandry (the hatred of men) had a big year, too, but it looked a little different. For us, it was a tool to help create a less oppressive future.” Zimmerman...

In an article called “19 Amazing Gifts Every Feminist Will Absolutely Love,” BuzzFeed suggested numerous gifts for “feminists,” which it apparently misconstrued to mean “women who hate men.” Instead of pushing for equality, the gifts suggest hurting men, committing crimes, or generic pop-culture references.

    Leo McNeil ^ | December 11, 2014 | Leo McNeil
    Feminists have been lying to women about sex for the better part of a century. It was just a couple generations ago that feminists argued that all sex between men and women constituted rape. The feminists have done a complete reversal in the last few decades. These days sex is declared a right that is both physically and emotionally meaningless. Further still, feminists argue sex is empowering for women. Because feminism relies almost exclusively on stereotypes, their argument these days is that because men get away with engaging in casual sex without consequences so should women. Instead of elevating women,...

    California recently passed a law requiring that sexual encounters between students in universities and colleges can proceed only on the basis of “affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement.” Failure to resist or to ask the partner to stop the encounter can no longer be taken as consent. Institutions that wish to receive state funds or financial aid must adhere to this standard when investigating charges of “sexual assault,” a phrase redefined to include behaviors once considered boorish or insensitive, but not legally actionable. The California law follows on the 2011 Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights’s “dear colleague” letter that...

    The UVA rape story peddled by Rolling Stone has fallen apart. This is what happens when advocacy journalism pushes narratives rather than actual news. The feminist narrative these days is that we live in a country that hates women and ignores their violent rape. In order to fight back against a society that hates women, feminists have to make up stories about rape to confront society with. One wonders why, in a nation that hates women and doesn’t care about their violent rape, the left would bother making up stories when actual stories of violent rape must be so plentiful....

    A couple weeks ago Rolling Stone published an article about a 2012 gang rape that allegedly took place at a frat house at the University of Virginia. The article has come under scrutiny, largely because the writer never bothered to interview any of the alleged gang rapists or anyone else associated with the events of that night. It appears the writer only spoke with the alleged victim “Jackie.” Both conservative and liberal media members have questioned the article and its authenticity. The feminists are crying “rape denial” over a rape that was never reported to the police and likely didn’t...

    Bill Cosby has been accused of rape by 25-30 women. The alleged rapes follow a similar storyline. These women knew Cosby, some casually dated him. Many of the women appear to have been starstruck or otherwise looking to get into show business through Cosby. Eventually most of the women claim they were drugged and then raped. In some cases women claim to have been drugged and raped repeatedly. Most of the allegations of rape stem from events that happened in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. This isn’t the first time Cosby has been accused of rape, a lawsuit was filed...

From NJ.com:Earlier this month,state Assemblyman Troy Singleton(D-Burlington) introduced the bill(A3908),which would create the crime of “sexual assault by fraud,” which it defines as “an act of sexual penetration to which a person has given consent because the actor has misrepresented the purpose of the act or has represented he is someone he is not.”The bill was inspired by the case of Mischele Lewis, who...

    If Aesop were here he might rewrite his famous fable, replacing the boy who cried “wolf!” with the girl who cried “rape!” The cry of “rape” is used so carelessly that it’s often impossible to get to the truth of an accusation. When rape was a capital offense it was a rare and vicious crime which required a court of law to apply justice. It was underreported, since the rapist usually took advantage of those who felt too vulnerable even to say anything about it. Contemporary accusations of rape are frequent, often made by women at prestigious colleges whose accusations...

It begs the question:  are people who have sex multiple times with the objective of pregnancy really strangers?The feminist lie has now come full circle.  It started with “I don’t need a man to be fulfilled” so they encouraged women to replace a lifelong, committed relationship based on family, trust, and love, with outside things like career, money, and fashion.  There’s...

A little girl saying f*ck or the f*cking on equal and sexist way society treats girls and women?” In response, the feminist liberal media latched onto the video, calling it “brilliant,” “empowering” and “adorable.” During the short ad, the girls addressed – or, rather said ”f*ck” to – pay inequality (“I shouldn’t need...

Currently offered to Facebook employees as a surrogacy benefit and being rolled out as a fertility benefit for Apple employees starting in January, egg freezing may seem at first glance like just another line item on the list of perks employees of Silicon Valley enjoy. But women who...

    Most people believe that it is up to the woman getting married whether she takes her husband's last name or not - but that kids should generally get their father's name The wedding of Amal Alamuddin to George Clooney in Venice has been one of the most talked about events of 2014. Amal, who is a prominent human rights lawyer in the UK, caused a certain amount of controversy due to her decision to take Clooney's last name as her own. Furthermore, unlike many women with professional careers, she will also professionally be known as 'Amal Clooney' instead of 'Amal...

    If a woman's ability to choose is truly paramount to liberals, why do they attack those who choose to stay at home and raise a family in a world that is brimming with immorality, promiscuity and absentee parents? Furthermore, if feminists truly care about women, shouldn't they support their rights as individuals, equals, regardless of their political or religious affiliation? The real war on women has nothing to do with opposing abortion, protecting a child's life, or free birth control; it's a perilous product of the radical left's undying hatred of those independent voices who don't share their sexist views...

    A weary wrestling coach once lamented that his sport had survived the Fall of Rome, only to be vanquished by Title IX. How did an honorable equity law turn into a scorched-earth campaign against men’s sports? This week is the 42nd anniversary of this famous piece of federal legislation so it’s an ideal time to consider what went wrong and how to set it right.

    I haven’t been writing in a while, and it’s not because I don’t like writing any more but things have accelerated elsewhere in my life and I can’t be involved everywhere at once. As this isn’t paid work, obviously I can’t afford to put blogging first. Anyway, there are still many posts waiting to be finished. In the meantime, I’ll start another one. I often muse about all the things that we’d need to change about patriarchy if we abolished men’s rule over women and the earth. Everything and every single aspect of social organisation is so much the opposite...

    The Other McCain ^ | October 9, 2014 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Cornell University may be the only Ivy League school with a “diversity” quota for the mentally ill. Or maybe the students were sane until they got to Ithaca and started studying under the tutelage of radical professors. At any rate, the Cornell campus is swarming with lunatics: A student-sponsored event at Cornell University (CU) claimed capitalism and white supremacy are “institutions that promote rape culture” and “must be destroyed.” The event, which recognized a “National Day of Protest Against Rape Culture” late last month, took place in CU’s William Straight Hall. Bailey Dineen, one of the sponsors of the event,...

    PJ Media's Ed Driscoll ^ | October 4, 2014 | Ed Driscoll
    Al Gore was driven (further) insane when he lost to GWB in 2000, going from a man who attacked Bush #41 in 1992 for not removing Saddam Hussein from power, to demonizing Bush #43 for removing Saddam Hussein from power, and smearing his supporters as “digital brownshirts.” Gore, whose political career was reborn in 1989, when he made an about-face from a relatively conservative Democrat in the 1980s to comparing global warming to “An Ecological Kristallnacht” in a New York Times op-ed, sold his Current TV channel to Al Jazeera, owned by the ISIS-funding petro-state Qatar for $500 million at...

    Whole lotta lefty hacks out there today grumbling that the axe fell quickly for Julia Pierson only because she’s a woman. Supposedly, there’s a “glass cliff” phenomenon at work in which women executives are brought in to clean up a man’s mess and then, if they haven’t done it in some impossibly limited timeframe, they’re unfairly purged. Three problems with that. One: Per Ian Tuttle, Pierson wasn’t the first choice for the job last year. A man, former agent David O’Connor, was. Setting up Pierson for sexist reasons to take the fall for a hopeless salvage operation must have been...

    GoDaddy’s CEO is speaking on the “Male Allies” panel at next week’s Anita Borg Institute Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing event. Let that soak in for a moment. Such a role for a GoDaddy CEO would not have been imaginable five years ago. The company, known for its objectifying TV commercials, has rankled women for the past decade. But the man behind those commercials is no longer at the helm of GoDaddy*. Blake Irving is now running the show and wants to change the company’s image. That includes ending the controversial commercials (a move that was underway before...
  • Rape Culture Argument Denies Mankind’s Depravity

    The White House and left-wing media are pushing the ridiculous notion that 20% of college girls are raped. They base this statistic off of a highly questionable study at only two universities. In addition, the study included an expanded definition of sexual assault to include what amounts to drunken whore’s remorse. The fact is, one in five college girls are not the victims of sexual assault. Other studies indicate that around one in forty girls are the victims of rape or sexual assault. That number is too high but there’s a massive difference between 2.5% and 20%. One gets headlines,...
