  • When Hillary Clinton Killed Feminism (Maureen Dowd in NYT)

    The New York Times ^ | FEB. 13, 2016 | Maureen Dowd
    WASHINGTON — THE Clinton campaign is shellshocked over the wholesale rejection of Hillary by young women, younger versions of herself who do not relate to her. Hillary’s coronation was predicated on a conviction that has just gone up in smoke. The Clintons felt that Barack Obama had presumptuously snatched what was rightfully hers in 2008, gliding past her with his pretty words to make history before she could. So this time, the Clintons assumed, the women who had deserted Hillary for Barack, in Congress and in the country, owed her. Democrats would want to knock down that second barrier. ...

    Back in the 2008 primary season, I supported Hillary Clinton. That choice wasn’t easy for me, especially as Barack Obama advanced and became ever more compelling as a candidate. I felt spoiled as the year progressed: two great, revolutionary candidates; I’d be happy with either. And yet, until she conceded defeat, I stuck with Hillary for the simple reason that she is a woman. I did it for my newly dead mother, who would have loved to see the day when a woman became POTUS. My mother, who was 21 years old when Roe v. Wade passed, and to whom...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    Virginia is still deciding whether to ratify the ERA. The ERA would put in the U.S. Constitution a guarantee that Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. The proposed amendment was never added because it was not ratified by the requisite 38 states. Virginia is one of the states that havent ratified the amendment. It may be too late to make a constitutional difference, but womens rights activists continue to push for ratification in the Old Dominion. That is the goal of Senate...

    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....

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a conference room of international feminists and abortion advocates that the US is a long way from ratifying the UN treaty on discrimination against women, not for lack of trying, but for absence of support.

We asked her, "So many times we hear about 'the war on boys'--of a boy fashioning his hand or breakfast pastry into the shape of gun, then being suspended. What are we to think of this?"
  • 5 Ways Disavowing Masculinity Changed My Life

    Robert Reece has found that ignoring the Man Code has improved his life enormously. Not only does traditional masculinity oppress women but it also severely restricts the agency of men (a topic, I’ve written about in the past in the context of straight man love and hip-hop), often in simple, taken-for-granted ways. Straight men go to extreme lengths to perform masculinity. They avoid a wide variety of activities that they arbitrarily deem feminine or “gay” without analyzing the detrimental effects of this type of gender policing. Often mundane, seemingly inconsequential activities are heavily policed, inhibiting men’s ability to live freely...

But Breaking Bad the story about a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned clandestine meth-cooking badass didnt appeal. Then Anthony Hopkins declared it an epic work with the best actors Ive ever seen. Midway through season two, I understand why Walter White is heroic.

    A Colorado radio host is urging listeners to give up Girl Scout cookies due to what he referred to as the organization's promotion of "lesbianism." Kevin Swanson, a pastor and right-wing activist, said on his "Generations Radio" program, which originates in Elizabeth, Colo., that he doesn't condone purchasing Girl Scout cookies because the organization promotes homosexuality and supports abortion, MSNBC reported Tuesday. "Please, I beg of you, stop buying Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said on Monday's radio broadcast. "I'd say you ought to say no to the Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said.

    The Moral Maze on Radio 4 on Saturday night was unsatisfactory as always. This is because morality is treated as merely subjective, without regard to objective laws, and listeners who have not already sorted out what they believe, are left in the same maze as before. On the regular panel Claire Fox is generally bleakly pragmatic and Melanie Phillips generally angry and hectoring. It is a very British programme: serious moral concerns are aired, more or less politely, and then left when they began up in the air.This weeks subject was on the rights and wrongs of gender-specific abortions...

    On Wednesday, Great Britains Girl Guides (their equivalent of U.S. Girl Scouts) and Brownies removed God from their 103-year-old oath. Instead of the passage where they used to promise to love God, they will now vow to be true to "myself" and develop "my beliefs." The organization said the move is intended to attract girls from secular families. Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, condemned the move, saying, "These values have their roots in a Christian outlook. Taking God out of the promise denies the history and foundations of the movement without offering anything in its place, with the...

    When Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) gets criticized for their controversial practices, they usually offer vague statements and empty reassurances. Last week was no exception. I suppose my recent Girl Scout article hit a nerve. Last week, GSUSA released a statement attempting to respond to the concerns I presented. I thought it was interesting that they responded to fairly insignificant me, a lone teenage girl. You see, Missouri Right to Life, a major player on the pro-life stage, recently issued a very informative and well-documented policy statement about GSUSA. GSUSA has been curiously quiet about those serious concerns. As far as...

    It seems as though MSNBC’s liberal agenda doesn't concern itself simply with secular politics. They want the Catholic Church to "lean forward" into fundamentally changing themselves to reflect liberal values. In service of this pulpit-pounding, MSNBC's Jansing & Co. program brought on two liberal Catholic women over two days. At no point did she turn to a traditionalist, orthodox Catholic to defend the church's traditional teachings. On February 14, fill-in host Richard Lui interviewed Sister Louise Akers, of the Sisters of Charity to rail against the Church, in what she views as, “the last bastion of sexism.” Lui began the...

    Gays can be leaders. Women can be leaders. Without realizing it, I think gays and women inadvertently work against their own objective of equality when they force private organizations to support gay and female leaders. As I wrote here, gays and women are already equal before the Constitution, which defines us by our humanity, not by our sexuality, and is silent on most personal matters like marriage. Furthermore, the more the federal government defines our rights, the less free, equal and human we all become. Here is what generally happens when minority groups confuse social acceptance with equality and push...

From there, she could kill an armored vehicle and everybody in it a mile away.

    Sexist thinking is still alive and well in what we write, according to psychologists. They said letters that begin 'Dear Sir/Madam' and references to 'Mr and Mrs' are both remnants of an old -fashioned world view that placed men before women. Dr Peter Hegarty, who led a team from the University of Surrey, said: 'In the 16th century, naming men before women became the acceptable word order to use because of the thinking that men were the worthier sex.

Sheryl Stolberg writes in her new piece at the New York Times of a "generational divide" among those in the pro-abortion camp: The language and values, if you are older, [are] around the right to control your own body, reproductive freedom, sexual liberation as empowerment, said Anna Greenberg [a Democratic pollster who studies attitudes toward abortion]. That is a baby-boom generation way of thinking. If you look at people under 30, that is...

    Naomi Wolf is going back to her roots. The journalist and author, who has seemingly been on a break for the past couple of years from writing books on the kinds of feminist themes that made her famous in the early 1990s, has signed on with the Ecco Press for a project tentatively titled A Cultural History of the Vagina. Ms. Wolf was represented by lit agent John Brockman. Neither was not available for comment. In her last three booksone a memoir about her father, the other two polemics on American politicsthe author has departed from the area of expertise...

    SHES 87, STILL KICKING, and almost certainly still dieting, and the old bird has earned herself a scholarly biography the hard way; if Helen Gurley Browns journey from the outhouses and tent revivals of the Ozarks into the cocktail parties and four-color closings of the Hearst Corporation cant make a corker of a story, nothing can. Bad Girls Go Everywhere, by Jennifer Scanlon, a gender and womens-studies professor at Bowdoin, is a comprehensive report on HGB theory, which is in a revisionist phase. It rejects the earlier view, long held by giants of the womens movement such as Gloria Steinem,...

    WASHINGTON -- Two Washington Post journalists are apologizing and their satirical online video series has been canceled following criticism of a joke they told about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli killed the "Mouthpiece Theater" series Wednesday after pulling the latest episode from the paper's Web site Friday. In the video, columnist Dana Milbank and White House correspondent and blogger Chris Cillizza appeared in smoking jackets to discuss the kinds of beer politicians might drink. Milbank said he couldn't reveal to whom President Barack Obama would serve a drink called "Mad B---- Beer." That line...

    Sarah Palin is Eve Ensler's worst nightmare. That's all you need to know to understand the dramatic impact of the individual who continues to be the target of a cultural and political elite that looks for "anything that will criminalize and/or humiliate Palin and her family."  Sarah Palin, of course, is the charismatic, conservative Alaska governor who is unapologetically traditional and Christian in her politics and values. And Eve Ensler is the feminist who wrote the play The Vagina Monologues and has been enshrined by our cultural elite for her bizarre, sometimes depraved, and often just plain silly promotion of...

    Thank you, Barbara Boxer, for hammering the final nail in the coffin of angry and irrelevant pseudo-feminism. If there were any life left in its wheezing and flailing body, her latest experiment in the utterly ridiculous effectively pulled the plug. The venomous brand of feminism that cuts men off at the knees to make women arbitrarily taller is no longer credible. When Boxer had the audacity and some would argue, questionable mental clarity to publicly scold a US Army general for calling her maam instead of senator, it telegraphed to the rest of the world the sheer inanity...

    Greg Hengler has this interesting but relatively unsurprising clip of Sonia Sotomayor explaining in 1986 the difficulties women face in male-dominated professions, such as the law, as Sotomayor claimed on Good Morning America. The clip comes from a round-table discussion by successful women on the hurdles they faced in succeeding in a mans world. Mostly, its standard boilerplate, except curiously for Sotomayors complaint about dating:
  • The Sonia Syndrome: Why White Men Are Doomed

    06/02/2009 11:54:46 AM PDT · by lewisglad · 44 replies · 1,289+ views
    Quite soon, likely this week, Sonia Sotomayor will arrive on Capitol Hill, where she will be greeted by a gaggle of lawmakers. Nearly all of them will be white. Most will be men. It must be said: These guys are doomed. All of these dark-suited white male politicians, with their crisp shirts and red coordinated ties, will be embarrassingly lacking the key appendage required in American politics today. Through elections and re-elections, grueling fundraising dinners and various travails required for elevation to the highest offices in the land, they thought they had it all! And until now, darn it, they...

    Take a gander at the YouTube video embedded below, produced and posted online by Media Matters for America, a progressive media watchdog group. Or if you have more important things to do (and I don't blame you) than to watch this venom-spewing performance by a pompous parade of right-wing male commentators, let me describe it to you. A video cavalcade of pompous, annoying, thoroughly unattractive, low-brow guys poke fun at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent clarifications of her position on what she knew (about the Bush administration's use of torture) and when she knew it.

    WASHINGTON, April 3, 2009 ( - In a speech to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Awards Gala, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that she admires "Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision." Secretary Clinton said she is "really in awe of" Sanger for Sanger's early work in Brooklyn, New York, "taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions." Immediately following a trip to Mexico's Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the pro-life movement, Mrs. Clinton travelled to Texas on March 28, where she was awarded the Margaret...
