    As the world mourns the death of famed physicist Stephen Hawking, many are calling out tributes that contain “ableist” language and what one disability rights blogger described as “inspiration porn.” Among the social media posts honoring the A Brief History of Time author, who died March 13 at 76, are references to his use of a wheelchair and ALS diagnosis. Several tributes and obituaries have praised Hawking for “overcoming” his disease, while others claimed that death has “freed” him from his wheelchair. But those comments perpetuate demeaning stereotypes, advocates and members of the public, including model and deaf activist Nyle...

    WILMINGTON, Ohio, March 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A transgender freshman on the wrestling team of Wilmington High School quit her team because the coach made her use the changing room that corresponds with her biological gender. Her mother is complaining that the coach revealing her daughter’s sex was disclosing “privileged medical information,” which is illegal. Aubry Pogue-Krabacher, who dresses and presents herself as the boy “Aidan,” wrestled as a girl (against boys) since sixth grade, and now wrestles as a “boy.” She says wrestling Head Coach Kelly Tolliver humiliated her in front of the wrestling team by “outing” her as...

    A Brown University student has called for a “men’s revolution” to “liberate not only men, but all of society, from the constraints of toxic masculinity.” In a recent op-ed for The Brown Daily Herald, student Quentin Thomas argues that such a revolution is necessary because “toxic masculinity” causes men to “perpetrate harm against another individual and himself.”
  • What in the Name of Minnie Pearl is Wrong with Country Music?

    One of country music’s most powerful executives, says gun-toting, Bible-clinging fans like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are no longer welcome. The controversy started when the Country Music Association triggered a massive outbreak of microaggressions after they appointed Huckabee to the board of its charitable foundation. Huckabee has been a longtime supporter of music education so his appointment to a charitable board that supports music programs for young people was a perfect fit. However, a mob of social justice warriors, led by openly gay country music executive Jason Owen, protested – calling Huckabee’s appointment “grossly offensive” and “heartbreaking.” “This man...

    The “immigrant” theme dominated the acceptance speech, and not for the first time Sunday, in one of the major Oscar categories — the best director award. Fantasy director Guillermo Del Toro won the Oscar for his film “The Shape of Water” and leaped right into the matter and said movies should lead to one world and erase national sovereignty.

    In recent years, society has focused more on issues affecting girls and women than on those related to boys and men. But now, in all 63 of the largest developed nations, boys are falling behind girls in all academic subjects – especially the biggest predictors of success, reading and writing, in their mental health (depression, suicides), physical health (lower sperm counts), IQ, ability to create friends, and so on.Dr. Warren Farrell, who has written extensively on men and family, just released a book with co-author John Gray, the bestselling author of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus. The Boy...

    Expanding on the growing institutional campaign to use gender-neutral pronouns, the University of Tennessee has confected up some new ones: Students are increasingly coming to college ill prepared to do the work required, and the (overstaffed) administrations are still piddling about inventing new ways to tongue-tie pupils, ignoring that the English language – unlike, for example, Romance-based ones, Hebrew, Greek, and German – is remarkably devoid of gender specificity except for the basic pronouns, which clarify meaning. Try this out with zhee: Tom and Mary went to school. Zhee passed; zhee flunked out. Who? ... The pretzeling of language to...

    Students at Carleton College recently hosted an “all-gender” rendition of The Vagina Monologues in an effort to eschew the play’s roots in a “cisgender lens.” While productions of The Vagina Monologues have been a mainstay of campus feminist groups since its debut in 1996, the play has often been criticized by college students for its lack of focus on people of color and trans students.

    “I’m not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because they’re our past,” Dershowitz explained. “They have no resonance on university campuses today. “But the hard, hard left? Anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, intolerance for speech. It’s the future. These are our leaders,” he lamented. “When I used to teach 150 students in my first year of criminal law, I’d look around and I’d say, ‘Future president. Future chief justice. Future editorial director of the New York Times. Future managing partner of Goldman Sachs. They’re our future. And that’s why we have to worry much more...

    A conversation with the feminist icon’s sister. Feminist icon Kate Millett passed away recently in Paris at the age of 82. Her 1970 book Sexual Politics, called "the Bible of Women's Liberation" by the New York Times, had a seismic effect on feminist thought and launched Millett as what the Times called "a defining architect of second-wave feminism." In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her "the Mao Tse-tung of Women's Liberation." Fellow feminist Andrea Dworkin said that Millett woke up a sleeping world. Kate's sister Mallory, a CFO for several corporations, resides in New York City...

    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life: Hillary Clinton is sending a message of thanks to "activist bitches supporting bitches." The former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee made the comments in a video posted to Twitter on Friday by Huffington Post commentator Alex Mohajer.“Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks,” Clinton says in the video. “Thanks for your feminism, for your activism, and all I can hope is you keep up the really important, good work.” Off-screen, someone can be heard saying, “activist bitches supporting bitches,” which Clinton then repeats, laughing. “And let...

    The state’s top cop issued a warning to California employers Thursday that businesses face legal repercussions, including fines up to $10,000, if they assist federal immigration authorities with a potential widespread immigration crackdown. “It’s important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know – more specifically today, employers – that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office,” state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said at a news conference. “We will prosecute those who violate...

    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...

    WASHINGTON — Six protesters cleared of all charges related to riots that broke out on Inauguration Day were jubilant and declared a victory for lawful dissent after a jury found them not guilty Thursday following a monthlong trial. “People won’t be afraid to show up and go protest and get in the streets and not be worried that they’ll get mass arrested like we did,” said Michelle Macchio, one of the six acquitted defendants. “This sets a really strong precedent that that’s not ok and you can’t criminalize dissent.” The jury deliberated for a week before delivering its verdict in...

    There was little sleep the first night. Everyone was too wired with nerves and excitement. They expected the police to barrel in at any moment. The encampment went up on Nov. 17, a guerrilla whirlwind of tents, tarps, wooden pallets and two-by-four studs. In just a few hours, the intersection at Jefferson Street SE and Seventh Avenue in downtown Olympia, Wash., was transformed from a drab piece of asphalt into a hulking structure, somewhere between a refugee camp and a carnival tent. As impressive as the camp was, however, most of the 100 people who collected behind its barricades the...

    Former President Barack Obama's White House ethics lawyer warned of "taking to the streets" in the case Robert Mueller is fired from the special investigation into President Trump. Shaub held the position of Director of the U.S. Office for Government Ethics from 2013 through July 2017, when he submitted his resignation to Trump. Shaub said at the time that Trump has created an environment where ethics don't matter. This week, Shaub tweeted that he registered for a left-wing group's planned Capitol Hill protest, set to commence when and if Trump fires Mueller.(snip)
