    Bergen Record ^ | 07.12.14 | JAMES M. O’NEILL
    Roughly 50 people lined up in front of Hobby Lobby’s new Totowa store Saturday to protest the company’s role in a recent Supreme Court decision that says the company can choose not to cover contraception for its employees through the Affordable Care Act.The Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain is owned by a Christian family that says it tries to run the business applying its religious beliefs. One of the parties in the decision by the high court, the family had argued that the Obamacare requirement that all contraception be covered violated a 1993 federal law that protects religious...

    Obama Gives Radical Feminist Steinem Medal of Freedom President Obama said that Gloria Steinem “changed how women thought about themselves.” He also labeled her a “game-changer,” a “disrupter,” and a “champion noticer.” Obama stated, “She’s alert to all the ways, large and small, that women had been and, in some cases, continue to be treated unfairly just because they’re women… because of her work, across America and around the world, more women are afforded the respect and opportunities that they deserve.” Obama did not mention Steinem’s disdain for heterosexual relationships (Steinem infamously remarked that “a woman without a man is...

    I occasionally post satirical articles regarding issues of the day, but this one is NOT satire. It is a pdf document from NOW (National Organization of Nutca..I mean, Women) urging creation of this department to ensure women are treated equally. Funny, when Sarah Palin ran, they went after her with pure venom, showing no interest in womens' equality. Perhaps this office ought to be called "Office of Liberal Women Only"..
  • What Does Palin Have to Do With Feminism: Lack of Feminist Support is Not Hyprcritical

    UNLV Rebel Yell ^ | November 24, 2008 | Marissa Christenson
    Lack of feminist support for governor is not hypocritical For the record, Sarah Palin was far from the feminist ideal. Seriously. I have yet to come across one feminist-identified individual with an iota of support for the woman. However, political commentators displayed their limited understanding of feminism by considering this lack of support hypocritical. In their minds, Palin was strong, confident and defiant of gender norms. She was basically a man (say, George Bush for example) in a woman’s body. Kate Obenshain’s Nov. 21 article for the Washington Times, “Radical feminism’s mighty foe,” falls in line with this critique. According...

    Jewish World Review ^ | Sept. 19, 2008 | Suzanne Fields
    The National Organization for Women endorses the Obama-Biden ticket. NOW ought to change its name to WOW. Such stunning independence. A working woman with five children, the governor of a sovereign state, isn't a sufficient accomplishment. Who knew? Actually, Sarah Palin is a triumph for the "third stage" of feminism. The first stage of the modern woman's movement saw the destruction of the "feminine mystique." It's been almost 50 years since Betty Friedan argued that women lived in a "comfortable concentration camp" in the suburbs, prisoners with lots of rooms but no identity to call their own. She overstated the...

    Whether or not Sarah Palin helps John McCain win the election, her greatest work may already be behind her. She’s exposed the feminist con job. Don’t take my word for it. Feminists have been screaming like stuck pigs 24/7 since Palin was announced as McCain’s running mate. (Are pig metaphors completely verboten now?) Feminist author Cintra Wilson writes in Salon (a house organ of the Angry Left) that the notion of Palin as vice president is “akin to ideological brain rape.” Presumably just before the nurse upped the dosage on her medication, Wilson continued, “Sarah Palin and her virtual burqa...

    Sarah Palin shares nothing but a chromosome with Hillary Clinton. She is Phyllis Schlafly, only younger. Here's the good news: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing -- the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party -- are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president. We owe this to women -- and to many men too -- who have picketed, gone on hunger strikes or confronted violence at the polls so women can vote. We owe it to Shirley Chisholm, who first took the "white-male-only" sign off the White...

    Greenstone launches all-women radio talk network By Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss NEW YORK (Reuters) - Greenstone Media, a radio company whose founders include social activist Gloria Steinem and actress Jane Fonda, has launched an all-women, all-talk network across the United States. Steinem said the network, which is run by women, aims to provide an alternative to current radio talk, which she describes as "very argumentative, quite hostile, and very much male-dominated." This network "has a different spirit. It has more community. It's more about information, about humor, about respect for different points of view and not constant arguing," Steinem told Reuters in...

    It was the early 1900s, and boys were supposedly in crisis. In monthly magazines, ladies' journals and books, urgent polemics appeared, warning that young men were spending too much time in school with female teachers and that the constant interaction with women was robbing them of their manhood... Now the cry has been raised again: We're losing our boys. The media have been hyping America's new "boy crisis" in magazine cover stories, a PBS documentary and countless newspaper articles... The boy crisis we're hearing about is largely a manufactured one, the product of both a backlash against the women's movement...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- A recent fund-raising letter from the National Organization for Women is requesting money for what it calls an "emergency campaign to preserve abortion rights." The solicitation also asks for a signature on a petition that will be sent to Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD). The petition urges Daschle to continue his obstruction of pro-life federal judges nominated by President George W. Bush. NOW asks the Democratic leader to "use the filibuster whenever it is needed." The Senate minority leader is currently blocking nearly a dozen judges, some for over two years. Republicans have promised more...

    Feminist activists are sending women a wake-up call. But will anyone answer? On April 25, thousands of people will flood downtown DC to support one common goal: preserving what few reproductive rights women in this country still possess. But to truly succeed, the feminist movement must reach those who have never experienced a pre-Roe existence. Many of those in Gens X and Y do not recognize the massive threat to reproductive rights. Abortion is an abstract concept to them, a procedure that they think they likely will never need, but nonetheless will be readily available if they are wrong. Will...

    TALK RADIO 790 KABC - THE LARRY ELDER SHOW | Matt Garrett
    Yesterday on the LARRY ELDER SHOW, Larry interviewed former radio talk show host, att'y, and media whore Gloria Alred about Arnold's running for governor and the interview in the 1977 issue of OUI magazine where Arnold bragged about taking part in an orgy. Alred, in her typical "we're talking rape here - if it is rape and I don't know if it is" fashion, pathetically attempted to attach the words "rape" and "sexual assault" where no such activity existed. Alred used to be a host on KABC, but the station chose not to renew her contract earlier this year.

    It's the whole "NO MEANS NO" brainwashing Gen X Y and Z have been receiving since we were in kindergarten. "NO MEANS NO" no matter what position you are in, or how you got yourself there. Here's what I think happened: this girl went up to Kobe's bedroom in the hotel, like she said. She started having intimate contact with Kobe, they ended up in bed, and while they were in the middle of the act, the girl starts freaking out that she's only 19, Kobe isn't wearing protection, and she doesn't want to get pregnant. So she starts telling...

    It was the early 1960s, on the cusp of the sexual revolution, when a 19-year-old White House intern named Mimi Beardsley commenced a sexual relationship with President John F. Kennedy. She was not the only woman to have an affair with JFK, nor he the last President to dally with an intern. Yet the unearthing of the long-buried secret does matter. Like it or not, care or not, it's a piece of American history. Some people think it should have remained hidden. Not Mimi. Marion Fahnestock, now 60 and living on the upper East Side, confirmed her identity to the...

Braving a thicket of reporters, Marion (Mimi) Fahnestock, now 60, confirmed to the world how, as a prep school senior, she caught the eye of the world's most powerful man. "From June 1962 to November 1963, I was involved in a sexual relationship with President Kennedy," Fahnestock said in a short statement. "For the last 41 years, it is a subject I have not discussed." Fahnestock's statement indicates...

    A new biography of John F. Kennedy claims that the late president had an affair with a teenage White House intern. But while historian Robert Dallek's "An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963" does not identify JFK's young squeeze, documents recently unsealed by the Kennedy presidential library seem to put a name to the young gal--and it's Mimi. As part of the library's oral history program, scores of Kennedy aides have provided recollections of their Camelot days, with interview transcripts being archived by library officials. Included in this group was Barbara Gamarekian, a White House aide, who was interviewed in...

    John F. Kennedy's intern admitted to the Daily News yesterday: "I am the Mimi." Marion (Mimi) Fahnestock, now 60, called it a huge weight off her shoulders to finally reveal her affair with the dashing young President four decades ago. "The gift for me is that this allowed me to tell my two married daughters a secret that I've been holding for 41 years," she said. "It's a huge relief." "It's all true," said Fahnestock, sitting in a pew in Manhattan's Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, where she works as an administrator. Referring to stories in The News this week detailing...
