  • Watch Inclusive Feminist Conference Organizers Treat Woman Like Garbage For Being Conservative

    The 10th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference, which was held in Washington D.C. last weekend, was billed as being “inclusive” and “representing various perspectives and experiences.”Not so much. When Campus Reform‘s Katherine Timpf attempted to ask young women their views on feminism, not only was she told “you’re not wanted here,” an announcement was made advising attendees not to talk to Campus Reform because it’s “conservative.”The website of Feminist Campus, which bills itself as the “world’s largest pro-choice student network,” promoted the conference this way: “The goal of this conference is to encourage and prepare young women to become...

    Susan Patton, aka The Princeton Mom has finally released her book, Marry Smart, based on the controversial letter she published last year in The Daily Princetonian, which advised young women to focus on finding a husband while in college. Liberal feminists hate the book. I mean, they just hate it. Which makes me want to read it, actually. Anyway, Patton generates so much wrath because she points out one of the big lies behind modern feminism. The lie is this: that to be successful and happy you need to focus on your career and not marriage or children throughout your...

    Indian Publisher Withdraws Book, Stoking Fears of Nationalist Pressure By ELLEN BARRY FEB. 13, 2014 NEW DELHI In a fight with a major company, a frail 84-year-old retired headmaster would seem to be the David to Indias publishing Goliath, Penguin Books. But this week the headmaster, Dinanath Batra, achieved the crowning victory of his career as a right-wing campaigner, forcing Penguin to withdraw and destroy remaining copies of a scholarly work on Hinduism by an American professor that Mr. Batra has called malicious, dirty and perverse. Mr. Batras assiduous legal filings in defense of his religion had sometimes paid...

    Feminism is not an idea or a collection of ideas but a collection of appetites wriggling queasily together like a bag of snakes. Feminism has nothing to do with the proposition that women should be considered whole and complete members of the body politic, though it has enjoyed great success marketing itself that way. (Virginia I. Postrel recently denounced me as a creep for suggesting that the substance of feminism, if indeed there is any, differs rather radically from its advertising campaigns.) A useful definition is this: Feminism is the words I Want! in the mouths of three or more...

Think Jerrys kids, except instead of saving the children, the unborn are eliminated. They call that reproductive justice. Silverman and Winstead appeared together that night on MSNBCs All In With Chris Hayes, where Hayes described the event as a telethon to help Texas women trying to survive the onslaught of right-wing deprivation of their right to choose.

The following statement was made by the commenter: Is that what feminism in practice? I think not. One of the main problems with feminism is that it exploits the legitimate claims of equal rights as a cloak to usher in its divisive, hateful and neurotic interests. Interests that are plainly anti-male and not at all about equal rights. Its about Female Supremacy, Nothing More, Nothing Less. This contention is followed by a...

According to a new documentary, the mastermind behind the group, members of which earlier this year assaulted a Belgian Catholic bishop for his views on homosexuality, was, until recently, a man with a penchant for pretty girls, and a habit of belittling the feminist warriors he led into battle. Its his movement and he hand-picked the girls, filmmaker...

It is called Jackson Women’s Health Organization, and it is painted bright pink, as if to say, “We are here for the ladies, and we’re not going away.” This clinic is sassy, you guys, and it’s in danger of closing because of a new Mississippi law mandating that all abortionists obtain admitting privileges at a hospital. Nearby hospitals are...

    Not so long ago, the idea that women might rule the world seemed slightly ridiculous - like something out of science fiction. But in an essay to mark International Women's Day, political analyst and former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers argues it's now a topic that can be seriously discussed. Women clearly lacked the intellectual capacity and emotional fortitude to make the difficult decisions that leadership required. It wasn't bias, it was biology - it was just the way women were made. But that was then. In recent decades, attitudes and ideas have changed - and fast. That's...

That in 2012 - 12 years into the third millennium - this issue is being argued about is taken as proof that the Church is hopelessly behind the curve. But if you listen...

    Newt Gingrich criticized Republican rival Rick Santorum on Tuesday afternoon for his complete misunderstanding of modern warfare over the former Pennsylvania senators remarks on women in combat. Santorum on Thursday said he had concerns about women in frontline combat. I think that could be a very compromising situation where people naturally, you know, may do things that may not be in the interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved, Santorum told CNNs John King. Gingrich fired back at Santorum, calling his credentials to be commander in chief into question during a press availability...

    ...This farm was strewn with rusted car parts, overturned boxes of trash, empty soda bottles, crushed cans and downed trees, and through this WALL-E wasteland wandered dozens of chickens, cats, dogs, and three bloated broad-breasted white turkeys. The bearded proprietor ambled through the debris and grabbed up a fat, hiccuping bird that he placed in a laundry bin in the back of our car. "You gonna ... ?" he made a throat slashing motion and grinned. I gave him cash. The turkey may well have ingested STP, Mountain Dew, and crystal meth, but I remain confident that she was never...

    WASHINGTON Shirley Miles, the former head of the Department of Defense Education Activity, has been fired following an Inspector Generals office investigation that found she had abused her authority. Specifically, the investigation determined that Miles used her power to secure jobs for friends and relatives, received pay to which she was not entitled and engaged in unprofessional conduct and speech.

We have finished our review of the recommendations contained in the DOD Inspector...

    'OCCUPY WALL STREET' (HEARTS) WALL STREET October 19, 2011The worst thing about Occupy Wall Street is that it's ruining a good cause: hating Wall Street. Just when opposing Wall Street was gaining momentum, these brain-dead zombies are forcing us to choose between thieving bankers and them. If the Flea Party were really concerned about the greedy "Wall Street 1 Percent," shifting money around to make themselves richer and everyone else poorer, their No. 1 target should be George Soros. Of course, we don't know exactly how much money Soros has, since he keeps all his money in offshore...

    In another entry I posted about Archbp. Dolan’s letter to Pres. Obama warning him and his administration to back off from their project to equate those who defend true marriage with racists, as if the proponents of same-sex unions held the moral equivalent of black people seeking equality in the early 1960′s.Even as I posted that, I found an email urging me to post about the time the founder of Planned Parenthood – supported enthusiastically by the Obama Administration – addressed the Klu Klux Klan. Yes, Margaret Sanger was an ally of the KKK.I can’t help but wonder at how...

    What would the Club for Growth say about Ronald Reagan? We know what they think about Rick Perry since they have produced new Presidential White Papers on him. Their opinion: eh, not bad, but not great.Now, keep in mind, the Club for Growth is hard to please. We are talking about Rick Perry, the governor of Texas. That is Texas, arguably one of the most conservative and freest of the market states in the country. The very place that George W. Bush helped to create a pro-business atmosphere. All he had to do was clock in and clock out and...

    (And you wonder why Britain is in trouble ....) After just one day of classes at her summer school of choice, Emily Birkenshaw had already learned a crucial lesson: how to "go floppy" when facing arrest. "You're heavier then, so you can't be carried," she said, with the genuine delight of a new recruit. The 24-year-old been practising by linking arms with her classmates and singing loudly at a pretend policeman. "It just felt really empowering," she said. "If that happened [in real life] and I hope it wouldn't I'd know how to do it without getting hurt."...
