The Clichés of Third-Wave Feminism

Posted on | October 25, 2016 | No Comments


Today I was working on a long piece about academic feminism while babysitting my youngest grandson, and during my grandson’s nap, I checked my file over at Medium — an innovative platform, by the way — and noticed a response to something I had written. Backstory: Woman tells her personal “rape culture” narrative, which involves getting illegally drunk as a 16-year-old at a “house party” and hooking up with a “troublemaker” boy who was “nice” to her — until they were behind closed doors. This cautionary tale led me to explain that “I find myself constantly warning my two teenage boys to behave themselves”:

It behooves young men in the 21st century to conduct themselves in such a way as to prevent even the slightest shadow of suspicion falling on them.
“Don’t be a Bad Boy,” parents must warn our sons, just as we must warn our daughters: “Stay away from those Bad Boys.”

Good advice, yes? Well, no, according to Jessa Cary Fiers, who denounced me as “pompous and deplorable . . . misogynistic to all women.”

This led me to wonder, “Who is Jessa Cary Fiers?”

You can click here to discover the answer, and I don’t want to spoil any surprises, but it involves a fabled Greek island, IYKWIMAITYD.

News Flash: Feminists Hate Men

Posted on | October 24, 2016 | No Comments


Sunday, I took notice of a controversy at Columbia University, where feminists tore down posters announcing a scheduled Nov. 1 speech by Christina Hoff Sommers. In researching this incident, I discovered that Columbia senior Roya Hegdahl had incited hatred against Dr. Sommers by labeling her a “rape culture denier.”

Well, who is this person?


The “personal is political,” as feminists say, and so I wondered who Roya Hegdahl is and what her motive might be for attacking Dr. Sommers:

Roya Hegdahl is a radical feminist and a senior at Columbia University. How radical is she? Four years ago, as a high school senior, she won a scholarship to Netroots Nation. She worked as a volunteer for the left-wing pro-abortion candidate Darcy Burner in the 2012 congressional campaign.

“Darcy Burner asked the audience to hold their applause for a minute and have any woman who has had an abortion and was comfortable expressing it openly to stand up in the audience. Moments later, she asked everyone who will stand with them in support to stand up as well and nearly every person in the room stood up. It was a really beautiful moment.”

Roya Hegdahl hates babies so much she applauds abortion as “beautiful.”
Never talk to a feminist. I keep explaining this, but many young guys don’t seem to get it. If a woman expresses a sadistic glee about dead babies, if she is enthusiastically pro-abortion — and Darcy Burner’s speech “nearly brought me to tears,” Roya Hegdahl says — shouldn’t you consider her emotionally unbalanced? Isn’t there something profoundly wrong with her? . . .

Read the whole thing at Medium. Parents really need to warn their children about this dangerous ideology. The idea of “equality” may seem harmless — who can be against “equality”? — but when you step back and ask yourself what “equality” means, and what measures might be enacted in pursuit of such a vague policy goal, you perceive the need for caution. And if you then take a critical look at feminist rhetoric, real danger becomes obvious. Our society has arguably gone too far in the direction of “equality,” and we may have already passed the Point of No Return. How will you protect your children from the toxic influence of feminism? Parents need to think very hard about that, before it’s too late.


‘Quem Deus Vult Perdere, Prius Dementat’

Boston Latin School, founded in 1635, is the oldest public school in America. For more than three centuries, BLS was “a bastion for educating the sons of the Boston ‘Brahmin’ elite,” and this prestigious all-male school did not admit its first female student until 1972.

Feminists are now determined to destroy Boston Latin School:

A dress code enforcement push at Boston Latin School has spurred a new protest movement at the troubled exam school, with students demanding changes to the policy, saying its heavy focus on girls’ attire and sexuality, as well as rap styles, discriminate against female students and minorities. . . .
“After reading it, it seemed it was mostly addressed to girls and people of color,” Liliana Severin, a junior at BLS and a member of the Students Advocating for Gender Equality Club told the Herald. “It enforces the sexualization of a young girl’s body. It’s unacceptable to be teaching them that at a young age, especially considering we have 12-year-olds at school.” . . .
The petition argues that the school dress code reinforces “a patriarchal society where men can decide whether a female’s clothing is appropriate or inappropriate” and that girls’ bodies are “sinful temptation that needs to be covered up at all costs in order for others to focus on their education.”

You can read the rest. Our society is doomed. America is now a failed civilization, and  “gender equality” is the madness destroying us.

Welcome to 2016: ‘When the Insane Are Normal, the Normal Are Insane’

Posted on | October 24, 2016 | No Comments


In case you haven’t noticed, the world has gone crazy. We now live in some kind of alternative universe dreamed up by a science-fiction writer, and it’s comforting to know we’re not alone in feeling this way:

Studies have produced little evidence that “gender reassignment” surgery yields mental health benefits for those who receive it. In what other field of medicine would it be considered acceptable to perform massive, transformative surgery without any clear evidence of a therapeutic benefit? . . .
Perhaps that is the ultimate point: to eliminate the very distinction between a normal psychology and a disordered psychology, even between sanity and outright insanity. And that’s precisely where we are headed. . . .
[I]t feels like we’re being asked to participate in some kind of mass delusion where we’re all supposed to affirm that something is perfectly normal and healthy when it obviously isn’t.

Thank you, Robert Tracinski, for explaining the obvious truth. Sane people find ourselves accused of “hate” for daring to say things like that.


Chase Strangio (@chasestrangio) is a Staff Attorney with the ACLU’s LGBT & AIDS Project. Chase’s work includes impact litigation, as well as legislative and administrative advocacy, on behalf of LGBTQ people and people living with HIV across the United States. Chase has particular expertise on the treatment of transgender and gender non-conforming people in police custody, jails, prisons and other forms of detention.


Oh, of course, the ACLU has staff lawyers who are trying to convince us that the categories “male” and “female” are an illusion, telling us it is “hate” to believe that these categories are real and meaningful. Only bigots believe such things, and it is only your ignorant prejudice that makes you believe chromosomes and hormones and genitalia are socially significant factors that deserve recognition in real life. How long until the phrases “real life” and “common sense” are forbidden as hate speech?

So I encountered “Chase Strangio,” the pseudo-male ACLU lawyer, playing the role of heroic martyr/victim in an emotional appeal to pity:

[W]e have spent years in dark places wrestling with our truth, feeling ashamed and plagued with self-loathing. And when we manage to come through that and survive, and thrive and even love ourselves, we are confronted with this kind of insidious insistence that we should have just not existed after all.
Too many of us die because that belief takes hold of us or of others. With attempted suicide rates in the community close to 50% and murders of transwomen and femmes of color reaching epidemic proportions, these questions truly are life or death.

Oh, cry me a river, you dishonest weirdo:

Are some people so weak that they’ll commit suicide if we don’t talk to them exactly as they want to be talked to? You want to blame other people because you’re “in dark places . . . plagued with self-loathing,” and then think you can guilt-trip the world by threatening to kill yourself if we criticize you?
One of the most toxic aspects of this Victimhood Derby competition is how some people invite the world to their pity party, and then accuse the rest of us of “hate” if we don’t accept the invitation. . . .
You’re a bully. Stop pretending to be a victim. You don’t fool me.
If you’re “plagued with self-loathing,” maybe it’s because you’re so loathsome.

Teaching Intolerance: How Columbia University Feminists Suppress Dissent

Posted on | October 23, 2016 | No Comments

Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and nowhere is this more evident than in the youth indoctrination centers known as university campuses. The more elite the university, the more complete control is exercised by the totalitarians. Annual tuition at Columbia University is $55,056, and for that price, parents of Columbia students are guaranteed that their children will never be exposed to any fact or opinion that feminism’s campus commissars dislike:

On Thursday, students hosting an upcoming talk by scholar Christina Hoff Sommers put up roughly 50 flyers promoting the event on four different campus buildings at Columbia University and Barnard College. Within 24 hours, most had been torn down.
The flyers advertised Sommers’ scheduled appearance at Columbia University on Nov. 1 titled “Victims, Victims Everywhere: Trigger Warnings, Liberty, and the Academy.” Flyers advertising Columbia and Barnard’s politically liberal and neutral events were left unharmed.
Sommers is known for her critique of contemporary feminism, arguing it can be faulted for its “irrational hostility to men, its recklessness with facts and statistics, and its inability to take seriously the possibility that the sexes are equal—but different.”
Barnard College student Toni Airaksinen, who is co-hosting Sommers’ talk as part of the Columbia American Enterprise Executive Council, told The College Fix that “some Columbia students are so committed to speech regulation that they don’t even believe alternative viewpoints should be brought to campus.”
“I have already seen students write Facebook statuses talking about how they want to rally or protests at the lecture,” she said. “Tearing down flyers is just an easier and quicker way to protest.”

More at Legal Insurrection and Reason magazine. Among the totalitarians leading the crusade against Dr. Sommers’ speech is Columbia senior Roya Hegdahl, who attacked the AEI scholar as a “rape culture denier.”

The irony of this hateful intolerance toward Dr. Sommers is that her planned speech is actually about the climate of hateful intolerance.

Liars always hate the truth, which is why feminists at Columbia University will not allow students there to hear a single word spoken in favor of men, marriage, motherhood, capitalism or Christianity.

Feminist intolerance is pervasive throughout 21st-century academia. Parents who send their children to a wretched hive of scum and villainy like Columbia are promoting this totalitarianism by paying for it.
