  • Why Am I So Sad About Having a Boy?

    New York Magazine ^ | 1/15/2016 | Jenn Gann
    I was really looking forward to being dumber than my daughter. For the first 20 weeks of my pregnancy, my husband and I spun a collective daydream about our wise little girl: We pictured her walking through life with confidence and long, wavy hair, a perfect combination of my curly and my husband’s straight. She'd be his willing partner at museums, so gifted in math she could do her homework without my help. The dumbest, basest jokes, our favorite kind, would make her roll her eyes. The afternoon of my 20-week ultrasound, I left work early and got on the...
  • Jennifer Lawrence blames herself for making less money...: ‘I failed as a negotiator’(Snipped title)

    FULL TITLE: Jennifer Lawrence blames herself for making less money than ‘the lucky people with d---s’: ‘I failed as a negotiator’ Jennifer Lawrence says she was paid less than her male "American Hustle" co-stars because she "failed as a negotiator" — and she believes that failure may have stemmed from a deeply-ingrained female fear of assertiveness. According to the Academy Award-winner, who discovered through the 2014 Sony email hacks that she and co-star Amy Adams had made less money than “the lucky people with d---s” (Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner), her mistake was trying to avoid seeming "difficult" or "spoiled"...

    DES MOINES — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Ellen Page, of “Juno” fame, got into a testy and free-wheeling discussion Friday over gay rights here at the Iowa State Fair. “I’m happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate,” Cruz told Page, as she pressed him about discrimination against LGBT citizens, approaching him as he flipped pork chops over an open grill. But the two then proceeded to have a spirited exchange over gay rights and whether private businesses — florist companies, for example —can refuse to cater gay weddings in the name of their...

    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...

    Feeling that bicycle maintenance is too male-centric, Bike Forth, a community bike shop in California, will open its doors every other Tuesday specifically to cater to the “Women Trans Femme” (WTF) communities. Every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, everyone is welcome, but men are not allowed to shop on these Tuesdays. Volunteers at the shop noticed that “most” of their customers were men, so they felt that they should be banned occasionally so that “other” communities would feel welcome and not intimidated. Anne Hereford, a volunteer at Bike Forth who helped initiate Women Trans Femme Night, said, “The idea is...

    Melvin Konner, a Professor of Anthropology and Behavioral Biology at Emory University, believes that women will lead the world to “a better place.” More specifically, he argues, “male biology has brought the world war, corruption, and scandal.” He wrote his opinions down in an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal titled, “A Better World, Run by Women.” Women, he believes, do not become corrupt, they are not scandalous, and shall not ever plunge nations or the world into war. Females, he explains bluntly, are “superior to men in most ways that will count in the future… because of...

    In a stunningly evil and disgusting article, a feminist only willing to identify herself as “Lana” has described her decision to abort her child, based solely on the fact that he was a boy. Lana begins her article by explaining that “the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time,” and continues by writing about an argument she had with a man on an airplane, while she was pregnant, to summarize what she deemed “extreme patriarchy.” The description of the argument is straight forward: Lana was flying to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally....

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...

This is not because of the people he killed, but because he was "hot." Instead of focusing on the victims, these users talk about the attractiveness of a killer.

In part, the petition reads; "This highly realistic sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work in this space."

    MAMMALS are named after their defining characteristic, the glands capable of sustaining a life for years after birth — glands that are functional only in the female. And yet while the term “mammal” is based on an objective analysis of shared traits, the genus name for human beings, Homo, reflects an 18th-century masculine bias in science. That bias, however, is becoming harder to sustain, as men become less relevant to both reproduction and parenting. Women aren’t just becoming men’s equals. It’s increasingly clear that “mankind” itself is a gross misnomer: an uninterrupted, intimate and essential maternal connection defines our species....

    I hate it — hate it – when I hear liberal groups talking about “women’s issues.” Please stop lumping me in to your stupid, sweeping stereotypes and implying that, just because I am a part of the gender demographic that composes approximately half of the world’s population, I automatically agree with you. I don’t. But that’s the appeal of continuing this utterly dumb “Republicans are waging a war on women” meme, I suppose — drumming up a false feeling of mass feminist solidarity and convincing the perhaps less-informed ladies of America that they have something they need to get outraged...

    Sometime last year, Procter & Gamble Co. was throwing around some crazy ideas of creating a grocery aisle specifically for men, apparently a brand new breed of consumers walking around grocery stores. The idea was to give the lonely male lost in a supermarket a fun shopping experience, putting everything a man's man would need in one place. And New York City's Westside Market has gone and done just that. "People rarely cater to men in the supermarket," COO Ian Joskowitz told us over the phone.

    The Supreme Court is again at the center of a highly controversial policy debate, having just heard arguments for the Affordable Care Act. There's been much discussion about the justices' supposed political agendas. I've heard fear-mongering about government takeovers and rumors of increased business costs. But I haven't heard much about what's really at stake: the welfare of the American people -- specifically women. Women like my mother and the other mothers, wives, sisters and daughters who need preventive services to ensure that they are healthy. Our Constitution was created to "promote the general welfare." So a court that strikes...

    Facebook, the most popular social networking site in America, is under fire from women’s groups because its board of directors consists entirely of white men. With the company about to go public in May, advocates are beginning to pressure the company to diversify its leadership. On Thursday the women’s rights group Ultraviolet began circulating a petition calling on Facebook to appoint female board members. According to the group, the lack of women is “nothing short of shameful.” “Facebook owes it success and makes a ton of money off of its women users. Women are responsible for nearly two-thirds of the...

    A MAN who donated sperm to a lesbian couple will have his name stripped from their child's birth certificate after a successful legal bid by the birth mother's ex-partner. The woman took the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, and biological father, to court in May to have his name replaced with her name in the document. The female child was born in 2001 and the women split in 2006, although they continued to share parental responsibility. The man also played a role in the child's life. New South Wales District Court Judge Stephen Walmsley today ruled in her...

Charles Pope OK, you know the typical drill of a TV commercial: As the scene opens, some buffoon of a man, usually a husband, is struggling to have a clue as to what something is all about. Sure enough, an all-knowing woman (usually the wife), rolling her eyes and shaking her head in pity, is there to help the stupid buffoon of a man not utterly ruin everything. And of course the product being peddled is usually part of the solution. And, by the way, did...

    For almost forty years, Ms. magazine has been the most famous voice of the feminist movement in print. Co-founded by Gloria Steinem in 1972, the magazine is stalwartly feminist, retaining the language and spirit of the feminism of the 1970s. In other words, Ms. is the voice of feminist ideological orthodoxy. And the demand for unrestricted abortion rights is at the center of that ideology. That’s what makes the Winter 2011 edition of the magazine so interesting — and so disturbing. The issue features an article by Madeline Wheeler entitled “Saving the Girl Child,” which offers a report on “India’s...

There will be women there, as well. We must not abandon them. It really is starting to...

    I long thought that the feminism that is often used to justify our presence in Afghanistan long after the failure to capture or kill Osama bin-Laden – the longest war in American history – was a cover for something else. However, with Hillary Clinton in charge of the State Department, and now this outrageous statement, I’m not so sure any longer. Although Americans have long justified violence on behalf of women, for example by lynching innocent men – both black and white – in the old South, beating and shooting men in their homes over domestic disputes and other such...

Instead, he’s a man hopelessly ensnared in a crushing bureaucratic machine: He’s in jail because he couldn’t pay child support, but he couldn’t pay child support because he was unemployed … and he was unemployed because the court took his driver’s license for failure to pay child support … after he went bankrupt paying his court costs....

While the macro war fought strategically by the generals has a great influence on the micro war fought tactically by the individual soldiers, the two wars are nevertheless distinct from one another and must be contemplated separately. In this second column in the series related to the war against men, I am focused solely on the micro war that is fought in the houses, classrooms, churches and night clubs of America. In the prelude to a battle, the local commander always considers four things. His resources,...

    This is too funny. An Ohio woman, all alone at home, probably with a few cats, got drunk and decided she needed a man. So she did what women have been trained to do when they have a problem: she dialed 911. Although calling 911 has proven to be very effective for removing husbands from women’s lives, a system whereby it replaces them has not yet been worked out. But never fear; I’m sure feminists will come up with a new program that court orders single men to attend to desperate, lonely and aging women who have blown it in...

On Father’s Day 2008, Sen. Obama could have spoken on any number of topics. His choice was to castigate African-American fathers and blame fathers, and fathers alone, for the ills of the African-American family. He called upon African-American fathers to be more involved in their children’s lives (certainly a worthwhile call) but he also castigated them for failing to endorse “responsible fatherhood” which...

Slain writes: "Phillips may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but his story is one that once again calls into question the legislative sanity of some of the overreach of our laws regarding what constitutes 'child pornography.'

    In the music video "Do It Well," singer Jennifer Lopez packs all of the following into a 3 minute, 17 second video: She pushes a man down a flight of stairs She kicks a man in the head She wraps a man's arm behind his back and shoves him She hits a man in the head (twice) She kicks a man She throws a man She pushes a man over a stairway railing, and he flips back head first. The video is considerably more violent than Carrie Underwood's anti-male Before He Cheats, which was bad enough. To watch the video,...
  • A New Thing to Blame Men for--Retiring at Retirement Age

    USA Today financial columnist Sandra Block's column below all but comes right out and says that men are selfish for retiring at retirement age. Instead, men should continue to work, work, work while--guess what?--women should retire earlier. According to Block, by working well past retirement age, men can "make up for all the times you came home with beer on your breath, left your socks on the bathroom floor or gave your wife a DustBuster for Valentine's Day." I guess 40 years of working longer hours than your wife at a job more demanding and hazardous than hers--as most men...
  • Girl Accuses Construction Worker of Rape--an Unbelievable Outcome

    Amazing--a middle school girl makes a false allegation of rape against a construction worker who is working at her school, and the result is: a) An outpouring of support and sympathy for the falsely accused construction worker. b) A tearful apology from the false accuser to the falsely accused construction worker. c) A tearful apology from the false accuser's parents to the falsely accused construction worker. d) A call for increased awareness of false allegations of rape. e) A call for increased vigilance against construction workers. If you picked "e", you're correct. The unbelievable story is below. To write a...
  • Boybashing in Abstinence Education

    Lead Feministing blogger Jessica Valenti, author of Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters, criticizes Abstinence Education in her recent blog post Abstinence-only Education: What we're missing. She makes some valid points, but what most interested me was her citing a 2004 Ms. Magazine article called Virgin Territory--Ms. goes to an abstinence conference and learns that it pays to be chaste. According to the article: "Your body is a wrapped lollipop. "When you have sex with a man, he unwraps your lollipop and sucks on it. "It may feel great at the time, but, unfortunately, when...

    “There’s nothing wrong with us guys, except everything.” “You guys aren’t dumb rednecks like they say?” Well, with fair and open-minded quotes like the ones above, along with the subtitle “The True and Twisted Mind of the American Man,” readers can easily discern just how slanted and biased Charlie LeDuff’s account of the direct sex is in US Guys. His subtitle, were it to be used in the context of women, would be tantamount to a hate crime. The author would never do that though because, as he admits in the Preface, “I hardly understand women.” No doubt he is...
  • Woman Who Statutory Raped Boy Avoids Jail, While Boy's Brother Imprisoned for Same Crime

    08/23/2007 9:54:38 AM PDT · by PercivalWalks · 7 replies · 478+ views ^ | 8/22/07 | Glenn Sacks
    I'm opposed to prison sentences for certain statutory rape situations--in many countries, a 21-year-old man having a relationship with a 17-year-old woman is perfectly normal. A friend's grandparents recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary, and it was publicized in local papers, as it should be, since it's such an achievement. But looking at the story and doing a little math made me realize that if the two of them had gotten married yesterday, he would go to jail--he was 21 and she was 17 when they got married in 1922. This is absurd. On the other had, if it's a...

    Dial up your local Country and Western station and you may soon find your fingers tapping out the beat of Carrie Underwood's latest hit, "Before He Cheats." Underwood suspects her boyfriend is probably cheating on her (in matters of infidelity, I guess "probably" is proof enough). This how she extracts her revenge: "I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive, Carved my name into his leather seats... I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all four tires..." Trashing your boyfriend's car has little to do with sugar and spice...
  • Carrie Underwood's 'Before He Cheats'--A Woman Commits Domestic Violence and it's Good Revenge

    "I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats...I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires..."--from Carrie Underwood's hit single "Before He Cheats."One of the ways the double standard about domestic violence manifests itself in our popular culture is the female revenge motif. Women who are wronged (which, to some, means all women) exact revenge in a way which, were the genders reversed, would be widely condemned. One example is country singer Carrie Underwood's hit single "Before He Cheats",...

    If dad goes for a walk with his daughter and holds her hand, apparently Virginia Department of Health officials wants you to pick up the phone and destroy his life by reporting him as a possible sexual abuser. I would've thought this article about this campaign was from the Onion or some satirical publication, but it's for real. One of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen is a picture of my father walking on the beach near sunset holding my daughter's little hand. The picture in the new "Stop It Now" campaign advertisement that depicts a man holding a...
  • Gay/Lesbian Press Mischaracterizes Glenn Sacks' Criticism of OPUS Cartoon

    Not surprisingly, the gay press has fired back at me over my comments earlier this week in my blog post "Nationally-Syndicated Cartoonist: It's Better to Have Two Moms than a Mom and a Dad," [] in which I criticized the OPUS Father's Day week cartoon "Davie Dinkle has two moms." In the cartoon, which appeared in many of America's largest newspapers last Sunday, two elementary school boys discuss a classmate who is being raised by two lesbian moms. One boy says, "Makes you wonder how he'll do without a male role model in the house." Right afterwards, the drunken, idiot...

    Guy Berkeley "Berke" Breathed (aka "Berkeley Breathed"), creator of the popular, nationally-syndicated cartoon OPUS, gives fathers a nice kick in the teeth Father's Day week with his latest comic "Davie Dinkle has two moms" (pictured). In the comic, which appeared in many of America's largest newspapers yesterday (6/10/07), two elementary school boys have the following discussion: Boy with Black Hair: Hey, ya hear about Davie Dinkle in third grade? Boy with Blond Hair: No. Black: He's got two moms. Blond: Two? Black: Multiple mommies. Blond: Cool. Penguin: No dad? Black: No dads. Blond: A dearth of dads for Davie Dinkle....

    Feminist writer Rebecca Traister and I debated the question "Is America Bashing Its Men?" in the June issue of Atlanta Life Magazine (pictured). Traister is a staff writer at who has written for the New York Times, New York Magazine, and others. Traister and I didn't agree on much of anything. We were asked the following three questions: 1) Why are men’s issues in the areas of divorce, child custody and support, false accusations of rape, and discrimination in the workplace and in society almost never covered by the mainstream news media? 2) It seems atypical to see men...
