  • Our first feminists never wanted abortion

    When Elizabeth Cady Stanton was penning the Declaration of Sentiments, she was imagining a future in which women had the right to own property and to vote, as well as the ability to participate in legislation. She was picturing a life in which women were viewed as equal to men, able to earn an income, able to speak their mind, and treated with respect. But in that vision, did Stanton see a world with abortion on demand? Did any of the major players in early feminism aim for such a thing? No, the early feminists fought for women’s rights, and...
  • What a Sight! Feminists Clash with Transgenders at London Pride Parade

    We told you it would happen, and it finally has. Conservatives long predicted that feminism and transgenderism were ultimately incompatible, but for a long time it seemed like the LGBT movement might just hold them together. Well, on Saturday that movement burst open, as lesbians led the parade in attacking transgenderism. "Transactivism Erases Lesbians!" read a banner that temporarily led the Pride in London march in the heart of Britain's capital. This banner naturally caused quite a stir, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan denouncing it in a statement. "Pride is about celebrating difference and London's amazing LGBT+ community," Khan's spokesperson...
  • Society Should Force Avowed Feminist Male Leaders To Own Up To Their Biological Genders

    Rather than allowing male politicians to insist that they’re really feminists, society should insist that they should drop their pretence. Avowed male feminists should be forced into the reality of admitting their biological genders soonest Self identifying feminists like Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who allegedly groped a female reporter before telling her the day after in what CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) called ”an apology of sorts” when he said: “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper I never would have been so forward”, is escaping the wrath of the progressive #MeToo Movement. Proof positive that...
  • Why can’t we hate men?

    Why can’t we hate men? by Suzanna Danuta Walters Suzanna Danuta Walters, a professor of sociology and director of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern University, is the editor of the gender studies journal Signs. It’s not that Eric Schneiderman (the now-former New York attorney general accused of abuse by multiple women) pushed me over the edge. My edge has been crossed for a long time, before President Trump, before Harvey Weinstein, before “mansplaining” and “incels.” Before live-streaming sexual assaults and red pill men’s groups and rape camps as a tool of war and the deadening banality...

    I want to share with you the most disturbing thing I have read in a very long time. You need to know about it. I learned about it via the Twitter feed of a UK radical feminist. In Britain, radical feminists, including TERFs (Trans-Exclusive Radical Feminists) are taking an insane amount of abuse from transgenders and their allies. But on that issue, they’re right. This particular feminist has uncovered something shocking — beyond shocking — about how pedophiles intend to use the same strategy that worked, and is working, for LGBTs, for the sake of legitimizing pederasty. Look:

    And in the real world, boys will still make sticks and Legos into guns, and girls will choose dolls and play house-- regardless of how feminists and the LGBT community and the media try to push their twaddle on the rest of us The headline should read, “Boy Scouts Welcome Girls In New Gender Neutral Scouts.” How hospitable. The announcement that the Boy Scouts of America will be dropping “Boy” from the name and admitting girls is sadly not surprising, but is extremely disappointing. My son, now a toxically-masculine 29, was a Cub Scout, Webelo Scout, Life Scout, and third...

    It sounds like the kind of legislation that should easily breeze through a statehouse, even in these politically divided times: a resolution denouncing white nationalists and neo-Nazis. It didn't even make it out of committee. The resolution was written by Democratic state Rep. John Ray Clemmons. It doesn't name any particular group. It calls on law enforcement to go after white nationalists and Neo-Nazi groups with the same "fervor" as other forms of terrorism.

    Trudeau is tanking the economic health of his country in order to pay homage to a myth and to keep his progressive pals happy We all knew that Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, who always got by living on Daddy’s Trust Fund ever since getting out of his diapers, knew zilch about budgets. Budgets always balance themselves—according to him.

    An Ohio sheriff said hundreds of local school employees signed up for a class to receive training on how to use a firearm in the aftermath of a high school shooting in Florida that left 17 people dead. “We put it online, we thought we’d get 20 school teachers maybe. Within 20 minutes we had 40. Within an hour we had 100. Within four hours we had 200. By the next morning, at 300, we cut it off,” Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said on “Fox & Friends.” There are currently only a few schools in the state that allow...

    Rey, Diana Prince, and Belle may have anchored some of the biggest box office hits of 2017, but they were the exception to the rule. Hollywood’s glass ceiling remained firmly in place as studios failed to back female-dominated movies last year, according to a new study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. In 2017, just 24% of protagonists in the 100 highest grossing films were women. That was a drop of five percentage points from 29% in 2016. The decline comes as a surprise given that the three most...

    Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence hit back at feminists who attacked her for wearing a “revealing” dress in cold weather, writing on Facebook Wednesday that she is “extremely offended” and calling her critics “sexist.” Lawrence came under fire for wearing a Versace dress, which critics described as “revealing,” while posing for a photo with her Red Sparrow co-stars Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, and director Francis Lawrence, who wore winter coats. Helen Lewis, the deputy editor of the New Statesman, received thousands of likes in her critique of Lawrence’s choice of clothing.

    Feminist icon Kate Millett passed away recently in Paris at the age of 82. Her 1970 book Sexual Politics, called “the Bible of Women’s Liberation” by the New York Times, had a seismic effect on feminist thought and launched Millett as what the Times called “a defining architect of second-wave feminism.” In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her “the Mao Tse-tung of Women’s Liberation.” Fellow feminist Andrea Dworkin said that Millett woke up a sleeping world. Kate’s sister Mallory, a CFO for several corporations, resides in New York City with her husband of over twenty years.In...

    Comedian Sarah Silverman said during a telethon to support abortions that a pro-life conscience law “would make her want to eat an aborted fetus.” Silverman made the comment during a game of “abortion charades” – part of a “telethon” titled Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It, hosted by the Lady Parts Justice League. As LifeNews reports, Silverman and colleague Lizz Winstead, creator of the Daily Show, hosted the telethon to raise money for abortions. The event also featured an interview with abortionist Willie Parker who claims in his recent book there is a moral argument for...

    (Now that) President Trump’s refusal to call himself a feminist. I have high hopes that America is waking up to the farce that is feminism. “For the first time in decades, if not ever, [feminism’s] tenets are being publicly challenged,” writes Corey Schink for Sign fo the Times. It is long overdue, for we can now expose feminism for what it is: a war on men, on children, and on family. Feminism is not concerned with the needs of boys and men, nor is it concerned with the needs of children. In fact, feminism serves no purpose today — that's...

    Members of the Women's March movement are no longer grabbing their trademark pink "pussy hats" out of concern they might be offensive to minorities and transgender women. Following Donald Trump's inauguration, marchers donned pink cat ears, a mocking reference to the president's hot mic comments saying that he enjoyed grabbing women by the "pussy." But the Detroit Free Press reports that women activists in Michigan and elsewhere are making a conscious effort to move away from the hat out of fear that it "excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don't have typical female genitalia...

    Iranian men and women have been actively and vocally speaking out against their oppressive regime for the last few days. The women, in particular, have provided a sight to behold: Many are removing their hijabs, protesting the Iranian dress code, and literally shouting against Khamenei in the streets. ... Still, the overwhelming progressive response to these courageous women has been strange, if not telling. Hardly any self-proclaimed feminists have cheered on the Iranian women who are so boldly speaking out against a dictatorship that would rather see them dead than sans hijab. Conservatives and liberals alike are well aware the...

    The Women’s March is facing intense pressure to come out in support of Iranian women protesting the fundamentalist Islamic regime. Women have become symbolic leaders of the protests, which are entering their sixth day, by removing their hijab in defiance of laws mandating they cover their faces and hair. One image that has gone viral shows a young woman standing above a crowd, waving her jettisoned white hijab like a flag. The death toll from the anti-government protests rose to 21 overnight, and at least 450 people have been arrested. The Women’s March is busy rolling out its anniversary protest...

    Meanwhile, motor mouth Steve Cohen sent to the front of the battle-lines, has already failed at making Barron what the feminist movement made of him: a prop Feminists target little boys even before their birth in wanton abortion; have for decades targeted little boys from kindergarten age onward, and, shamefully, are uninterrupted in doing so. ‘Feminism’ leaves the devious impression that it stands for the protection of women and children which couldn’t possibly be more wrong. The most radical members of the modern feminist movement are men who identify as “feminists”, who should have their pictures posted to Facebook for...
