    Young girls may be discarding their princess wands for superhero capes this Halloween, but not so in the canine world. The glass ceiling appears to be firmly in place at PetSmart, where career costumes labeled “male” include firefighter and police officer, while female dogs can choose between a pink cowgirl costume and pink loofah. “It seems silly on the surface, but this is part of a larger message we’re sending, that there are certain jobs for men, and certain jobs for women,” said Scott Lawrie, 36, who co-hosts a podcast, ‘She will not be ignored,’ about gender issues. “The career...

    Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc. Let’s try an experiment, shall we? Let’s say it’s four years ago, and a Republican nominee for president makes a broad, sweeping statement about Democrat voters - saying they are dependent on government largese and this is the reason it’s so difficult to get them to vote Republican. The statement is secretly recorded and released to the public. What happens? Well, we don’t have to speculate because this isn’t imaginary. It really happened, and Mitt Romney’s well-documented (and also totally accurate) comment about the 47 percent of voters who depend on government was used...

Clinton called Trump supporters, a “basket of deplorables”, “irredeemable” and “not America” among many slurs she hurled against half the country. Clinton also said they were so desperate for change they don’t care where help comes from. Conway spoke out Twitter while Miller issued a formal statement through the campaign....

    New York (CNN) — Hillary Clinton told an audience of donors Friday night that half of Donald Trump's supporters fall into "the basket of deplorables," meaning people who are racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic. In an effort to explain the support behind Trump, Clinton went on to describe the rest of Trump supporters as people who are looking for change in any form because of economic anxiety and urged her supporters to empathize with them. "To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," Clinton said. "Right? Racist, sexist,...

In February, Carter endorsed Trump by asking his 500 thousand followers, “Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads?

The research was published in the peer-reviewed journal Progress in Human Geography in January.The study, by historian Dr. Mark Carey and some student researchers, was financially supported by taxpayer dollars.

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...

    Delilah is dangerous, Jezebel, wicked, and as for Eve... Whether they are temptresses, harlots or simply Old Testament chattels, women (it is often argued) get a raw deal in Scripture, with the odd saintly exception (the virgin Mary). But new research into Biblical women shows that the majority receive positive or matter-of-fact write-ups. Words such as "blessed", "righteous" "outstanding" and - of course - "beautiful" crop up in descriptions of 60 of the Bible's 175 female characters, according to research from The Bible Society.

They’re so PC.’” Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’”...

    n Friday evening ahead of Memorial Day weekend, a drive-by shooting near the University of California, Santa Barbara, left seven people dead, including 22-year-old suspect Elliot Rodger. Just as past school shootings in America, the media has reacted by isolating the event as a monstrous and heinous act with no precedent. Rather than seeing Elliot Rodger as a product of society, the media has depicted him as a bloodthirsty madman, a mere glitch in the system. And yet the facts show a very different story. Judging by the chilling YouTube video Elliot Rodger left behind, the gunman knew exactly what...

When Trevor Noah was announced Monday as the next host of satirical powerhouse The Daily Show, most observers had little familiarity with the 31-year-old, South African–born comic, save perhaps for his three awkward appearances on the program with current host Jon Stewart. The New York Times piece announcing the succession threw up a few vague red flags (Comedy Central never auditioned Noah, who provided reporter Dave Itzkoff with a weirdly self-aggrandizing non sequitur comparing himself...

    When it became apparent that his opponent in the state tournament wrestling match would be a girl., e would be facing off against a girl, Joel Northrup, forfeited his match to her.  As a home-schooled sophomore with a 35-4 record, Joel is also a Christian who takes his faith seriously. So he could not in good conscience wrestle with a  girl due to the manner in which a wrestler must grapple with their opponent. If only we had more boys raised to respect the fairer sex as much as Joel has been.   His parents are homeschooling him. but he...

Kirsten Gillibrand "the hottest member," in front of a crowd that included the blond mother of two. reported that the remark caused Gillibrand to blush and surprised those in the audience. Reid apparently was explaining that senators are known for "many things," but that Gillibrand has a reputation as a Capitol Hill hottie. ...

    The Manhattan lawyer who thinks the big problem with singles clubs is that women pay less to get in got the big brush off in court yesterday. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals rejected claims by self-proclaimed "anti-feminist lawyer" Roy Den Hollander that letting women past the velvet rope for free or half price on "Ladies Nights" violates the Constitution. The state has no control because "liquor licenses are not directed related to the pricing scheme" at the door, the court said. The court, with evident amusement, said it must rule against Den Hollander even though "without action on our...

    Belinda Luscomb, writing for feminist mouthpiece Time Magazine, exposes the fact that young women make more than young men in virtually all big cities in the United States. The triumphalism so clearly on display in the article shows the feminist claim that all they want is “equality” for the bald-faced lie that it is. No, they want supremacy, and they have demonstrated time and again that they will use the state to achieve it. In fact, it is through government interference that young women have gained the upper hand over men. Not only do public schools favor female learning styles,...
  • Wonder Woman Behind the Curves

    Wonder Woman got a makeover, but she's still behind the curves. Her designers seem not to realize that for decades women have been in the ascendancy in the marketplace, and it's male action heroes who require a makeover, literally and figuratively. Exceptions still rule the imaginations of children, but in the world where most grown-ups live, the male sex seems to need a Wonder Man to idealize possibilities. Or to put it bluntly, woman is the new man. For the first time, women make up the majority of the workforce. Women dominate the numbers in undergraduate education and in professional...

    In the world of political blogs, there comes a story from the liberal lefties that Sarah Palin has had a breast augmentation. The liberal blog Wonkette (Defined: Liberal and Stupid) has a hot tip from one of its “Wonkette operatives” that Mrs. Palin had augmentation surgery. This “tip” is based on dated photos that appear to show a change in her physical profile from an older photo and a present one. They “report with confidence” that this is true based on the fact that they had two “straight” women review the photos and these women should know. The website story...

    The preening liberal media loves to fancy itself an elite bunch, the epitome of correct thinking, good intention, and unassailable virtue. That comfortable notion took a broadside earlier this week when it became known that liberal icon Helen Thomas had remarked Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Germany or Poland. It should be noted that Thomas was well-known for her anti-Israeli views, often peppering administration officials with long-winded questions that came across as pro-Palestinian tirades. But Helen Thomas isn't the only female journalist who recently indulged in bald stereotypes. Last Thursday journalist Andrea Mitchell...

    25 Horribly Sexist Vintage Ads by Oral Adams Since the 50’s, a lot has changed in way of women’s rights and their duties in and out of the house. I highly doubt any company could get away with phrases like “The Chef [mixer] does everything but cook – that’s what wives are for!” nowadays. Or how about an ad agency pitching a company an idea of a wife bent over her husband’s knee as he prepares to spank her.
