  • Women activists present condoms to Philippine bishops (asking for their blessing!)

    AFP ^ | March 8, 2010
    MANILA — Philippine Catholic bishops, already waging a bitter battle with the government over birth control, received an unwelcome gift Monday when female activists delivered them two baskets of condoms.Members of the leftist Party of the Workers presented the condoms to mark International Women's Day as they picketed the headquarters of the influential Catholic Bishops Conference.They also asked the bishops to bless the two baskets but no bishop was present at the time to respond."We humbly ask the bishops to bless the condoms as a conciliatory gesture to unite for reproductive health and women?s rights," said Judy Ann Miranda, the...
  • Let's consider Palin a feminist success story (Is this the ultimate anti-Palin screed?)

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | February 26, 2010 | Beverly McPhail
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is back in the news and continues to engender debate among feminists. Although feminists initially found her to be a dream and then ultimately a nightmare, the latest round of Palin appearances may signal a feminist success story after all, heralding that true equality for women has finally arrived. When Palin initially burst upon the national stage as Republican presidential hopeful John McCain's vice-presidential running mate, feminists sat up and took notice, especially since many were disappointed that Hillary Clinton did not secure a spot on the Democratic ticket. When feminists first learned about Palin,...
  • Feminism: The Masquerade

    02/24/2010 8:27:20 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 29 replies · 718+ views
    You’ve got a long way to go, baby. And don’t you forget it. This oasis of freedom and equality we call the United States? It’s all a mirage, says leftist feminist Jessica Valenti. In fact, “We’re suffering under the mass delusion that women in America have achieved equality.” Well, thanks for the armchair diagnosis, Jessica, but I won’t play a victim character in the live action role playing game you call feminism. And that’s exactly what leftist feminism is: an elaborate fantasy world spun from ginned up scare-tistics and cherry-picked anecdotes. Like Trutherism and Birtherism, it provides participants with the...
  • Why Women Are Called Sluts When They Sleep Around, But Men Aren’t

    02/08/2010 10:07:18 PM PST · by libh8er · 127 replies · 3,229+ views
    You often hear women, especially feminists and sluts, complaining about how it’s such an unfair double standard that men are called studs when they sleep around, yet women are called sluts. It’s really not a double standard though, because both scenarios are pretty different in terms of circumstances and consequences. I can think of at least three crucial differences. First, sleeping around is easier for women. Regardless of how you feel about promiscuity, we can all agree that a guy who manages to rack up a lot of sexual partners has to have some skills. It’s challenging for men to...

    Harriet Harman was yesterday slapped down by national statisticians over her claims that women are paid a fifth less than men. The Women and Equality Minister was told she must no longer use a single figure to describe the complex differences in the earnings of men and women. Instead she will have to give three measures - among them one which shows that far from earning less than men, women in part-time jobs are actually paid more on average than their male counterparts.

Crespo, the New Jersey Appellate Division overturned the June 18, 2008 ruling of Francis Schultz, who vacated the final restraining order (FRO) entered against defendant Anibal Crespo. Judge Schultz vacated the FRO entered pursuant to the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act because the standard of proof provided by the Act, the preponderance of evidence standard as opposed to the clear-and-convincing standard, violated the defendant’s right to due process. (He also noted that the Act’s “practice and procedure” components violate the separation of powers doctrine, but this finding had no affect on his decision to vacate the FRO...

We remain victorious. And that victory is a good thing – but, make no mistake, even though OSA has gone home; our work is not done. If we were to leave this park and discover that clinic violence had become a thing of the past, never to plague us again, that would be a very good thing, indeed; but, still, our work would not be done.

    The abortion industry needs a "pride" movement, similar to that of the immensely successful homosexualist movement, a prominent US bioethicist says. Jacob M. Appel, an author, professor at Brown University and graduate of Harvard Law, wrote on the website "Opposing Views," that "the moment is ripe - more than ripe - for an Abortion Pride Movement." Appel says that "one is bombarded" in the "conservative" press with stories of women who overcome obstacles to bring to term "fetuses" with severe disabilities. "The implication," he wrote, "is that while bearing a child when one is ready is a blessing, bearing a...

    The announcement that the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA, has chosen a lesbian, pro-abortion president to lead the seminary has sent shock waves around the Anglican Communion. The appointment of Katherine Hancock Ragsdale highlights a week that also saw TEC bishop-elect Kevin Thew Forrester replace a reading from the New Testament with a reading from the Quran at St. Paul's Marquette, Michigan. One wonders what Episcopal boundaries and barriers have yet to be crossed that the dying embers of historic Christianity could possibly fan into life. That the Diocese of Massachusetts has a functioning transgendered priest complete with a...

    On election night, hope was palpable. A sort of jittery excitement filled the air at the Catoosa Democratic Headquarters in Ringgold, Ga. A year ago, the local party was lucky to have 20 people at a breakfast meeting. Now, giddy Obama supporters edged past each other in the crowded banquet hall, sharing smiles and ogling the vast array of T-shirts and buttons. “Your grandparents were right,” read one sticker, “Vote Democratic.” For decades, this area has been Democratic. That’s the reason we are known for having some of the best public schools around. It’s the reason we have a fabulous...

"I have a question for the women in the audience," the Alaska governor began her speech here at the Henderson Pavillion, underneath an arching white tent. "Are you willing to break the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America?" Palin surrounded herself onstage with two higher-profile defectors from Sen.

    Hillary supporters do not despair: You do have a woman on the Obama ticket and her name is Joseph “Jo” Biden. When Obama talks about wealth distribution, he seldom, if ever, mentions any related programs by name. But you can bet your last dollar – and you won’t have much else left by then – that Jo Biden is percolating plans for a national “man tax.” Legislating a “man tax” (reparations of sorts) will be done under the noble guise of compensating women to the benefit of all society and, of course, especially children.

    Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old, unmarried daughter of Sarah Palin, is pregnant. Although she plans to keep the baby and marry the father, her immoral shortcoming is still clear for the nation (and world) to see. Is it possible that her very busy, avowedly-feminist mother, the governor of Alaska and presumptive Republican vice-presidential candidate, could have made a moral difference, had she been more available for her daughter? With this in mind, it is sobering that, among the thousands of conservative pundits praising John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate, no one is asking a very important...

    The proper role of government is to provide equal opportunity for all, not preferential treatment for any one particular group. Comparable worth is a warped social theory and all U.S. legislatures and courts that have considered it have rejected it for that very reason. The Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R. 1338), introduced by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) in the House and by Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) in the Senate, would amend the Equal Pay Act (EPA) to allow for unlimited compensatory and punitive damages, even if a disparity in pay is determined to be unintentional. It would also require the Department...

    American culture is starting to resemble a teen-ager obsessed with bathroom jokes. Only America's focus is riveted on sex. All sex, all the time. From Britney's panties, to Anna Nicole's lovers, to transgender rights to forced acceptance of homosexuality. If a story deals with sex, it sells. The focus on sex, while prurient and titillating, has wider implications that have been overlooked. They involve redefining the family and undermining marriage by de-mystifying sex, (under the guise of 'empowerment.') From advocating special rights for transgendered under the banner of 'inclusiveness,' to same-sex

Meet Britain's first feminist, Boadicea By PAUL JOHNSON Last updated at 21:32pm on 6th February 2008 Britain's history is rich in fiery queens, and the first such heroine, tall with red hair down to her waist, commanding and brave, was Boadicea, warrior leader of the ancient Britons. She lived at the same time as the emperors Claudius and Nero, and led a surprisingly successful British revolt against Roman rule in AD60-61 (which, for reference, was when St Paul was writing epistles and St Mark composing his Gospel). She was a...

    My mother is a feminist. A die-hard, take no prisoners, true-blue feminist. Armed with a hard-won PhD., she has made her life's work the counselling of the transgendered, the gay and the sexually confused. Honest work in which she is passionately invested. The only fly in the ointment is me, her conservative daughter. I am as passionate a conservative as my mother is a feminist. It's hard to imagine two more diametrically opposing viewpoints. I view the current state of feminism as doing more harm than good. As undermining the traditional and family values that I consider the backbone of...

    WASHINGTON -- A prominent feminist, allied with the presidential campaign of former Sen. John Edwards, accused Democratic front-runner Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday of "disingenuously playing the victim card" by infusing her campaign with messages about gender. "When unchallenged, in a comfortable, controlled situation, Sen. Clinton embraces her political elevation into the 'boys club,' " Kate Michelman, the former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, wrote in a posting on a blog of the liberal group Open Left. But when she's challenged, when legitimate questions are asked, questions she should be prepared to answer and discuss, she is just as...

    Marchers Hurls Trash, Screams Epithets, Expose their Genitals, and Embrace each other Sexually While Group Prays Silently CORDOBA, October 18, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A pro-abortion march by angry feminists in the Argentine city of Cordoba became the scene of religious harassment last Sunday as demonstrators assaulted a peaceful group of Catholics praying in front of the Cathedral. The feminists, who were participating in the Twenty-Second Annual National Women's Encounter, erupted into a frenzy of obscenity and violence, throwing trash and screaming epithets at the counter-demonstrators, who stood on the steps of the Cathedral with a banner over their heads...

    Ann Coulter, wearing black sunglasses, a white tank top and capri pants, was sitting on a couch in the Carlyle Hotel’s tea room. It was a few days before the publication of her book, If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans. I asked her if the war on terror was still the No. 1 issue. “It’s the top nine of 10 issues. For Democrats, it’s about number 57. We’ll see, but I think Americans are smarter than we think. We think we know what Americans think as reflected in the mainstream media—well, that has been wrong so many times....

Conde denying communion to one of the abortion supporters (photo: La Prensa) Managua, Oct 1, 2007 / 11:51 am (CNA).- Just yesterday, feminists and pro-abortion supporters interrupted Mass at the Cathedral of Managua in Nicaragua and attempted to receive Holy Communion.  When they were refused, according to church law, they reacted violently and forced the celebrant to end the Mass.The decision by the celebrant, Father Bismark Conde, to deny them Communion bothered the women, some of whom are members of “Catholics for a Free Choice.”  They remained in the church and demanded to receive the Eucharist.According to the Nicaraguan...

    Poll: Presidential Candidate Backing of Tax Payer Funded Abortion Decreases Support Among 68% of Women WASHINGTON, D.C., August 23, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A national survey of women voters this week revealed that Hillary Clinton has a long way to go before she can claim the "women's vote." In fact the poll, commissioned by the Susan B. Anthony List (http://www.sba-list.org/), found that while Clinton enjoys support among women voters, her support is underwhelming at best. "Women may be ready to vote for a female president, but Hillary Clinton doesn't fit the bill," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony...

    This year marks the 62nd anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan. Every year at this time anti-American hyperbole is at a fever pitch. The revisionist historians that abound in American academia have a field day. They rant about the “racist” decision to bomb defenseless cities, all the while leaving out the complete and utter destruction of Dresden Germany. A city largely populated by white Germans! Pay no attention to Dresden they had it coming. The hue and cry from communists masquerading as professors is nearly drowned out by the cacophony of traitors who agitate for withdrawal from the mid-east...

    July 16, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Although few have heard of her outside the movement she helped to shape, the psychologist Evelyn Hooker's contributions to the advance of the homosexual political movement puts her in an historical class with Margaret Sanger, the foundress of Planned Parenthood and institutionalized abortion, and Alfred Kinsey the "father" of the sexual revolution. Hooker, a professor of psychology at the University of California at Los Angeles for 30 years, is credited in the medical and psychological community, and most especially amongst homosexual political activists, with establishing that there is no measurable psychological difference between heterosexual and...
