  • Why are some suburban white women in the Women's March so agitated, angry?

    I saw coverage of some of the Women's March on TV and Internet this weekend. In my area, New Jersey, there was a huge one in Morristown, a Republican stronghold and all the women there looked angry, bitter, agitated. Saw them talk about "white male privilege", "whiteness", "toxic masculinity", "police brutality", and the other left-wing buzzwords. How did some suburban white women get so agitated over Hillary Clinton's failed presidential bids? Aren't suburban women historically conservative?

    It’s Day Two of the government shutdown. Democrats spent yesterday celebrating and marching, even here in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival. Their message was an important one, according to the Daily Beast: This year’s rally seemed united by two themes: the importance of this moment for women, and, well, “F*ck Donald Trump.” While last year’s march at the Fest was said to top out at 4000 (yuge, in Park City) this year’s was exaggerated to reflect “hundreds.”  Of course last year’s numbers included Harvey Weinstein who was marching in solidarity with them, and we all know how many independent,...

  • Feminists Are Ditching ‘Pussyhats’ Because They’re Racist and Transphobic

    More and more feminists are now ditching those pink, anti-Trump “pussyhats” on the grounds that they’re actually racist and transphobic. According to an article in the Detroit Free Press, many activists have concerns that the hat “excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”
  • Oh My: Women's Marchers Reject Pink P***y Hats, They Exclude Trans,

    Last year, scores of protesters descended into Washington D.C. to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. Dubbed the Women’s March, these passionate and unabashed left wing protesters donned pink hats, cutely named p***y hats—a reference to the Access Hollywood tape, where the president is heard joking with former Today show host Billy Bush, making lewd remarks about women. The hot mic moment occurred in 2005. The tape was leaked in October of 2016 and had no discernable impact on the race. Trump still won. This year, however, could spell the end of the pink p***y hats because they’re problematic. According...

    The Women’s March is mere weeks away. Women from all over the country will dress as reproductive organs, carry signs disparaging men, and pat themselves on the back for standing up against the patriarchy.Though the official event description is a bit different: On January 21, 2017, people of all backgrounds–women and men and gender nonconforming people, young and old, of diverse faiths, differently abled, immigrants and indigenous–came together, 5 million strong, on all seven continents of the world. We were answering a call to show up and be counted as those who believe in a world that is equitable, tolerant,...

    The Women’s March is facing intense pressure to come out in support of Iranian women protesting the fundamentalist Islamic regime. Women have become symbolic leaders of the protests, which are entering their sixth day, by removing their hijab in defiance of laws mandating they cover their faces and hair. One image that has gone viral shows a young woman standing above a crowd, waving her jettisoned white hijab like a flag. The death toll from the anti-government protests rose to 21 overnight, and at least 450 people have been arrested. The Women’s March is busy rolling out its anniversary protest...
  • Paul Krugman: “Make Pink Pussy Hats Symbol of Delivery from Evil”

    With hard news relatively scarce on this Boxing Day, I turned—for my sins—to the opinion page of the New York Times. And there I found Paul Krugman’s Christmas Day column. His latest jeremiad was curiously entitled “America Is Not Yet Lost.” If this is the optimistic Krugman, I’d hate to see the glum one! My headline reflects my pick for Krugman’s most atrocious line. The full sentence reads: “If American democracy survives this terrible episode, I vote that we make pink pussy hats the symbol of our delivery from evil.” But beyond that, Krugman’s column was a veritable cornucopia of...

    Merriam-Webster has just announced its “word of the year” for 2017. Drum roll, please…it’s feminism! The word peaked as an online search after various events occurred this past year, beginning with the Women’s March in January, then again when the film “Wonder Woman” was released, and now it has spiked yet again as a result of the #MeToo movement, which Time magazine has recognized as its “Person of the Year.” The word feminism was simply “in the air” this year, notes Peter Sokolowski, Merriam-Webster’s editor at large. Except it kind of wasn’t. For instance, nobody marched in the Feminist March...

    If you are a woman and dare to look within yourself, you are a Witch. You make your own rules. You are free and beautiful. You can be invisible or evident in how you choose to make your witch-self known. You can form your own Coven of sister Witches (thirteen is a cozy number for a group) and do your own actions . . . You are a Witch by saying aloud, “I am a Witch” three times, and thinking about that. You are a Witch by being female, untamed, angry, joyous, and immortal. In her article, Penny also cites...

    From organizing mass hexes to setting up witch-themed Etsy stores, the feminist movement and witchcraft are becoming increasingly entwined. In an article this week, feminist and author Laurie Penny documented the “boom in online occultism” and why feminists are so attracted to witchcraft. “Days after Donald Trump won the U.S. election, videos of women ‘hexing’ Trump went viral around the world, encouraging budding magical practitioners to burn images of the president-elect to bring his works to ruin,” reported Penny on Wednesday. “Meanwhile, an entire explosive industry of witch-paraphernalia is boiling out of the cauldron of digital consumer culture.” “You can...

    Female politicians are used to finding themselves in rooms full of men. But on Friday, two of the nation’s most prominent political women got the chance to address 10,000 girls. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) shared their experiences and offered advice to the young women in middle and high school at the annual Girls Build L.A. leadership summit in downtown Los Angeles. Girls Build is a program of the nonprofit L.A. Promise Fund, which aims to help students throughout L.A. County reach academic, personal and professional success. Both Harris and Clinton encouraged the young women to find issues...

    If you’re not up to date with the politically correct lingo, you should know that the concept of protected classes was created by leftists and it’s pretty much similar with the notion of identity politics. Basically, a protected class, whether we’re talking about minorities (blacks, Hispanics, “people of color”) or women/transgenders/gays/lesbians/whatever sexual so-called oppressed minority by the “patriarchy” (it all relates to Marx’s class war with a twist, now it’s a gender/sex/ethnicity war but the scope is the same, divide and conquer) has immunity/protection from  “hate crime laws” which are destroying conservative movements on the Internet (Facebook, YouTube are cracking...

    DETROIT — As the sun shined on Detroit on Saturday, the halls and conference rooms of the city’s Cobo Center convention hall were packed with a diverse array of women. Many had come from across the country to answer a key question that’s been burning for nearly a year now: What’s next? The inaugural Women’s Convention marked the first major follow-up to January’s Women’s March. That nationwide event, which took place in the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration, saw millions of women take to the streets of cities across the country to take direct action, assert their rights and make...

    The vice president—and other powerful men—regularly avoid one-on-one meetings with women in the name of protecting their families. In the end, what suffers is women’s progress. March 30, 2017 In a recent, in-depth Washington Post profile of Karen Pence, Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, a small detail is drawing most of the attention: “In 2002, Mike Pence told The Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.” In context, this choice is not especially surprising. The Pences are evangelical Christians, and...

    he Women’s March on January 21 was possibly the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history, with up to 5.25 million people taking part across the country. The movement is seeking to build on that legacy by hosting its maiden convention in Detroit later in October. But the choice of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders as the lead speaker at the convention has sparked criticism from commentators, who suggested that a woman should have opened the event.
