  • Feminist Internet: Witchcraft Is Sexist and Transphobic

    According to Social Justice Internet, there is a “sexism problem in the modern witchcraft community” and you should be very, very, very concerned for all of the witches it’s impacting. “Witchcraft may be a woman-centric lifestyle, but it still exists in a man-centric world — which means that sexism is, of course, an issue,” Jaya Saxena writes in her very important piece for the website Mic.

    The Patriot Post ^ | November 2, 2015 | Arnold Ahlert
    For the Left, however, "discrimination training" is a rather one-sided affair. Christians have certain beliefs with regard to same-sex marriage, yet when it comes to an accommodation for those beliefs Christians must accommodate homosexuals. Thus when Sweet Cakes bakery shop refused to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding, a ceremony owners Aaron and Melissa Klein insisted was a violation of their religious convictions, the Oregon commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries ordered the couple to pay $135,000 in damages for emotional and mental suffering arising from the denial of service. By contrast, Azucar Bakery, a homosexual-run business...

    Joe Scarborough had to prod her into it, but once she got going, Mika Brzezinski unleashed a blistering tirade against Hillary on today's Morning Joe for accusing Bernie Sanders of sexism. Hillary has ginned up great feminist umbrage at Sanders' statement at the debate that people need to stop "shouting" about gun violence and do something about it. A clip was played of Hillary at two stump events saying that when women talk some people think they're shouting. In an extended riff, Mika repeatedly called Hillary's shtick "pathetic," adding that she was "cringing" at the "stupidity" of it. Mika said...

    The Democratic National Committee is 'clearing a path' for Hillary Clinton to be its presidential nominee because its upper power echelons are populated with women, according to a female committee member who was in Las Vegas for Tuesday's primary debate. Speaking on the condition that she isn't identified, she told Daily Mail Online that the party is in the tank for Clinton, and the women who run the organization decided it 'early on.' The committeewoman is supporting one of Hillary's rivals for the Democratic nomination, and said she spoke freely because she believes the former Secretary of State is benefiting...

In an interview with the Mail On Sundays You Magazine, Dame Helen compared women to toddlers in this modern world in the sense they were were still trying to find their position in the age of sexual liberation, birth control, education and financial independence.

I have lighter eyes and darker skin, and with the exception of a bit of an eyebrow discrepancy, my face is generally symmetrical. Writing this now, I feel my stomach drop. In a culture that regularly exploits sexuality, its ironically unacceptable when women openly acknowledge it themselves. But hear me. The following is a string of subtle and routine occurrences that make me feel less human and should take their rightful place among the larger narrative of...

Parents bringing their freshmen students to move-in at the Norfolk, Virginia, campus and community last week might have glimpsed these banners hanging from the balcony of a private home. "Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time," read one of the signs, which was spray-painted on a sheet. "Freshman daughter drop off," and "Go ahead and drop off mom too," were messages displayed on two other sheets, CNN affiliate WTKR reported. Members of the Sigma...

    A national women's organization is challenging Gov. Bruce Rauner's appointments to the Illinois Tollway, saying he is violating state law by creating an all-male board. Over the past three months, Rauner has named five male directors and re-appointed another to the nine-member Tollway board, which already included three men. In addition, Rauner backed Greg Bedalov as the agency's new executive director. Bedalov replaced Kristi Lafleur, who had held the post under the tenure of former Gov. Pat Quinn. The National Council of Women's Organizations is charging that Rauner is violating the Illinois Gender Balanced Appointments Act. The 1991 law is...

    Late on Friday, Erick Erickson, who is a Fox News contributor and editor of the conservative blog network RedState, announced that he was uninviting Donald Trump from RedState's annual conference of GOP leaders. The reason, Erickson said, was Trump's overtly sexist comments to Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who had moderated the recent GOP primary debate. "As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me," he wrote. "There are just real lines of decency a person running for President should not cross." This would seem like...

    Some Democratic-party groups are renouncing their once-egalitarian idols, the renaissance genius Thomas Jefferson and the populist Andrew Jackson. Both presidents, some two centuries ago, owned slaves. Consequently, the two men have been suddenly deemed unworthy of further liberal reverence. In Connecticut, for instance, the state Democratic party has removed the two presidents names from an annual fundraiser previously known as the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner. There are lots of strange paradoxes in the current frenzied liberal dissection of past sins. One, a historic figure must be near perfect in all dimensions of his or her complex life to now pass progressive muster....

    A woman will be on the new $10 bill, bumping Alexander Hamilton aside. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says he will choose the woman by year's end, based on "input from the public." In one survey of the "public," the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, Wilma Mankiller, placed fourth. I understand the wish to counter sexism prevalent in early America, but "Mankiller?" The name alone probably reveals something about the attitude of some of those voters. Fortunately, more voted for Harriet Tubman. Tubman escaped slavery to become a leader of the Underground Railroad, then repeatedly returned to slave territory...

Written by Rebekah Herrick, a professor at Oklahoma State University, the study showed candidates pictures of men in Congress with and without facial hair. They were also shown on a scale, including clean-shaven men, men with stubble, men with mustaches, and men with full beards. "Pictured members of Congress with facial hair were perceived by our student subjects as more masculine, and less supportive of feminist issue positions, although not more willing to...

For that reason, men should literally give money to women for no other reason than that they are female. Here are just some of the tweets being bandied about on social media:

This speculation has been driving me nuts, especially since it's continued after she announced a run for the White House earlier this month. But over the weekend anchor Katie Couric, infamous for her interview with Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential cycle, brought up the notion again and asked Fiorina directly if she was really just running to be picked as vice president.

    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...

    (LiveActionNews) — A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.”Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of...

This, they explain, perpetuates gender inequality. Offering your...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/2/14 | Jerry Todd
    Todays little girls still want to be princesses and little boys will naturally gravitate to playing war and competitive games and sports often to impress a girl loving pure and chaste from afar. I still remember picking a fight with a kid in order to impress Carol McGovern who I had a crush on in 6th grade got the hell beat out of me as she walked by. Life lesson learned as Ken and I became friends. At least kissing Donna Hoffman in 1st Grade didnt get me expelled, but surely chastised by Sister Mary Bernice! Thats...

    Leftist McClatchy (Fresno Bee, Sacramento Bee), routinely trumpets the Demogoguecrat line about "The War on Women". Then look at their online ad policy in action, putting their money where their mouth is. These ads are demeaning to all women and to everyone who cherishes a Mom, Wife, Sister or Daughter I tried to read a serious article about Hillary Clinton, whom the McClatchy Editorial Board has supported in the past. This despite Secretary Clinton's persecution of Kathleen Wiley, Paula Jones and a whole host of other victims of Bubba's serial groping. You'd think that the Bee chain...

    It's enough to start a new battle of the sexes, but when it comes to needless and untimely deaths, men win hands down. A 20 year study of the Darwin Awards, an annual review of the most foolish way people have died, found almost 90 per cent were 'won' by males. ... Of 332 independently verified nominations 14 were ruled out of the analysis because they were shared by male and females - usually overly adventurous couples in compromising positions.

    Pelosi Suggests Questions About Her Future Are SexistTop House Democrat wonders why Mitch McConnell wasn't asked about stepping down the way she has been. BY BILLY HOUSE November 13, 2014 Nancy Pelosi on Thursday suggested that sexism plays a role in questions over whether she should remain House Minority Leader after her party's election shellacking last week. "As a woman, is there a message here?" asked Pelosi, 74, at a Capitol news conference. Pelosi challenged how many times reporters had asked that of soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, 72, as his party failed previously to capture the Senate majority...

    The New York State Democratic Committee (NYSDC) has sent out letters to registered Party members warning them that they are being watched to see if they vote in this election. While the letter tried to assure the recipients that their ballots would be secret, it emphasized that whether you vote is a matter of public record. NYSDC Chairman, former New York Governor David Patrick, characterized the note as a friendly reminder. The Democratic Party has done its part to secure a lot of benefits for these people. Its only fair that they do their share to help keep the cash...

    In comments sure to cascade into regional races across the South, embattled Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) told NBC's Chuck Todd on Thursday that Southern racism is to blame for President Barack Obama's unpopularity. "Why does President Obama have a hard time in Louisiana?" asked Todd. Let me be very, very honest with you," said Landrieu. "The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader." Landrieu added: It has not always been a good place for women, to be...

    Last week, the Supreme Court declined to hear a collection of marriage-equality decisions and deferred for another term what seems now an inevitable ruling for marriage equality. The very next day, the Ninth Circuit handed down an opinion, Latta v. Otter, striking down a number of same-sex-marriage bans. In doing so, the appeals court provided the first of what will surely be many such decisions from which the Court can choose when the justices consider what cases they might hear in the futureand so offers potential rationales by which they might make marriage equality the law of the land. The...

    The abortion movement could also be called the hypocrisy movement. They call themselves feminist, yet are thoroughly anti-woman. They say women have a right to abortion, but deny the right to LIFE. They encourage men to speak up if they advocate abortion, but demand that they shut up if they are Pro-Life. You dont have a uterus! they shout, suggesting that an absence of female reproductive organs disqualifies men from making judgments of right and wrong. But this anatomical difference is no problem in fact, it is a great boon when men want to express their belief in...
