  • Feminist college professor plays 'patriarchy chicken' to inconvenience men on her morning commute

    Red Alert Politics/Washington Examiner ^ | March 15th, 2019 | John Patrick
    Charlotte Riley, who teaches history at the University of Southampton, penned an interesting op-ed in the New Statesmen last month where she literally suggested standing in the way of busy males on their morning commute to help resist perceived patriarchy in society. According to Riley, such tactics are necessary because males have naturally been raised to believe they have a “right to occupy space.” “The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to...

    Companies headquartered in California can no longer have all-male boards. That's according to a new law, enacted Sunday, which requires publicly traded firms in the state to place at least one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019 — or face a penalty. It also requires companies with five directors to add two women

    Prayer room designed in spirit of ‘interfaith education’A Catholic university in Davenport, Iowa recently opened a prayer space dedicated to Islamic worship, honoring the legacy of a deceased professor of the school who taught a world religions class. The prayer room, developed by a senior of St. Ambrose University in collaboration with its Saudi Student Association, is designed “specifically for students of the Islamic faith,” according to a report on local NPR station WVIK. The room features ” sinks for ritual foot-washing,” as well as “separate areas for male and female worshippers, since Islamic tradition calls for different prayer areas...

    Radical feminism has embraced the penultimate line of the strange 70s movie Zardoz: “The Penis is Evil.” Of course, the first line is one they’d view with horror: “The Gun is Good.” But that’s because, in the minds of feminists, the gun is nothing more than an extended penis anyway. Certainly, comparing gun ownership with penis size is common enough among them.

    Hillary Clinton has expanded on her earlier claim that sexism helped torpedo her 2016 campaign, stating more specifically this week that white women were scared off by their husbands, brothers, boyfriends and male employers. "When women are serving on behalf of someone else, as I was when I was Secretary of State, for example, they are seen favorably," the twice-failed presidential candidate said this week in an interview with NPR. She added, "But when they step into the arena and say, 'Wait a minute, I think I could do the job, I would like to have that opportunity,' their favorabilities...

    Women political candidates have less chance of being elected than their male counterparts, according to research carried out by broadcaster RTS. The broadcaster studied the results of cantonal parliamentary elections in the past 15 years and found that women continue to be underrepresented. In the past 15 years, the percentage of women elected to cantonal parliaments has plateaued at 27.7 percent on average, though disparities exist between the regions. The parliaments of Basel-Land and Aargau have the biggest proportion of women, at 37.8 percent and 36.4 percent respectively, while Schwyz brings up the rear, on only 14 percent. Part of...
  • Where feminism fails: Breaking patriarchy requires equipping women to face challenges of freedom

    The Times of India ^ | July 6, 2017 | Ayushman Jamwal
    The core principle of the feminist movement is equality, but contemporary feminism seems to have lost touch with it, straitjacketing itself into a ‘Carnival of Outrage’. Feminism advocates freedom, but it seldom encourages the responsibility that comes with it. In the patriarchal system, men are trained to understand the risks and dangers of the world and prime themselves to face them, as they are also victims of assault and abuse. Under the same system, women are never conditioned for the ‘big bad world’. But as feminism aims to break patriarchy, it does not equip women to face the challenges of...

    The Federalist ^ | January 24, 2017 | Sean Davis
    Forget the war on babies. The abortion industry has a new enemy: ultrasounds. In a bizarre and rambling 2,600-word feature piece published on Tuesday, The Atlantic writer Moira Weigel took a sledgehammer to basic science and then did her best to vacuum its brains out before anyone could figure out what just happened. The article’s headline is bad enough—”How the Ultrasound Pushed the Idea That a Fetus Is a Person”—but its subhed is the real work of art: “The technology has been used to create an ‘imaginary’ heartbeat and sped-up videos that falsely depict a response to stimulus.” There...

    CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) — For the first time, the Marine Corps has put three enlisted female Marines in a ground combat unit once open only to men, officials said Thursday. They will serve as a rifleman, machine gunner and mortar Marine, said 1st Lt. John McCombs, spokesman for the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejuene. They report Thursday to the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, which has had three female officers in its ranks for several months to help integrate the enlisted females into the unit, McCombs said. The women's names and ranks were not released. "This process...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | June 20, 2016 | Alex Nitzberg
    While conservatives identify the Orlando massacre as an Islamic terrorist attack and the left blames a variety of factors including conservatives and guns, the Black Lives Matter movement has published its own unique perspective on the cause of this atrocity. "Despite the media's framing of this as a terrorist attack, we are very clear that this terror is completely homegrown, born from the anti-Black white supremacy, patriarchy and homophobia of [sic] the conservative right and of those who would use religious extremism as a weapon to gain power for the few and take power from the rest." Although the Orlando...

    According to a piece in the feminist blog Bustle, the tradition of men proposing women is “problematic” because it “perpetuates rape culture.” Yes — not “problematic” because it perpetuates recklessly emotional social media posts, but because it “perpetuates rape culture.”

    Nobody argues against the fact that there needs to be diversity at the top of large companies, but the Left is pushing for over-representation of minorities, and they make no bones about it. Sam's Club CEO Rosalind Brewer told CNN how she deals with the white patriarchy.  “Just today we met with a supplier and the entire other side of the table was all Caucasian males.”  She went on to say how “there were actually no females, like, levels down” in the company.  She vowed to “place a call” to the CEO. Brewer said that it has to start at the top, adding that...

    Feminist writers across the Internet have unearthed the latest conspiracy against women: office air conditioning. The Washington Post published an “investigation” of the “sexism” of air conditioning. The author, Petula Dvorak, spoke to an array of women who felt as if their offices were too cold; meanwhile, the men did not feel uncomfortable. Therefore, Dvorak concluded, “That’s right, my friends. Air conditioning is another big, sexist plot.” …

    Speaking of patriarchy and white supremacy, Kohn didn’t mention that abortion targets African-American babies as well as baby girls. Kohn’s tweet also referenced Sandra Bland, a “Black Lives Matter” activist who police say committed suicide in jail after her highly criticized arrest was caught on camera . But in the reaction to her tweet, Twitter users focused on Planned Parenthood:

New York police allegedly arrested two men for “manspreading” (sitting with their legs far apart) on the subway, according to a report entitled “That’s How They Get You” released by the Police Reform Organizing Project. “On a recent visit to the arraignment part in Brooklyn’s criminal court, PROP volunteers observed that police officers had arrested two Latino men on the charge of ‘man spreading’ on the subway, presumably because they were taking up more than one seat and therefore inconveniencing other riders,” the report states.

Voicing his opinion on twitter, Dr. Kotsko has repeatedly slammed Christianity, going so far as calling it another name for "White Supremacist Patriarchy." Here is just a small sample of his tweets and retweets on the subject:

    Björt Ólafsdóttir, a member of Iceland’s parliament, has posted a picture of her left breast online in order to “fight sexism” and “the patriarchy.” In an editorial written by Ólafsdóttir, she explained that she did so because she is tired of the hypocrisy of “Facebook and Instagram, whose guidelines specifically target the female form.” She explains that Facebook and Instagram allow men to show their nipples, and women should be able to do the same. The campaign she is championing is called “#FreeTheNipple.” Ólafsdóttir was inspired to act by 17-year-old Adda Smaradottir, who took a topless photo of herself and...

    According to a study released this month by Northeastern University in Boston, nonverbal cues such as smiling are sexist. The study's aim was to find types of sexism that are not readily apparent. Psychologist Jin Goh explained, "While many people are sensitive to sexist verbal offences, they may not readily associate sexism with warmth and friendliness." 27 pairs of men and women participated in the study. They were tasked with playing a trivia game and then talking afterwards. Scientists concluded that men who are nice to women are, in fact, actually sexist because they are tricking them into accepting the...

    The International Conference on Masculinities took place in New York City this year from March 6-March 8. Its twin goals are to “infuse men’s activism in support of gender justice with the rigor and insights of the most up-to-date research” and ” increase cooperation and ties between academic researchers who address various gender issues, and feminist activists, practitioners, and advocates.” The conference features various presentations, as well as “short one-person talks (with Q-&-A), workshops, films, art, poster presentations, informal roundtable discussions, music, and performances.” They also accepted “formal academic papers” during the conference. Also featured in the conference was an...
