Women’s Studies, IYKWIMAITYD

What aspect of feminism was I researching when I found this? Never mind; it doesn’t matter now. The point is that I found a 2009 syllabus for a Women’s Studies course (“Introduction to Feminisms”) at Boston College, which was taught that year by Ellen Friedman. This sophomore-level class is cross-listed under the departments of sociology, […]

Rule 5 Monday: Air-Cooled

– compiled by Wombat-socho This week’s Rule 5 roundup post almost got punted to Tuesday on account of a weekend spent getting face time with friends and some wrestling with a window air-conditioner tonight, which will make the burrow much more habitable over the next few horribly humid months here in the Washington DC area.

The #HobbyLobby Hysteria

Years ago, while reporting on federally funded research — the infamous “porn arousal” studies at Northwestern University — I developed what I like to think of as the Existential Theory of Liberalism: To a liberal, nothing exists unless it is mandated, subsidized and/or regulated by the federal government.

Gender Theory Madness: Gay Man Gets ‘Doxed’ Because of His ‘Transphobia’

In case you missed my posts over the weekend — “Tranarchy: Gender Theory = Insanity” and “Inmates Run the Facebook Asylum” — the long-running online war between transgender activists and radical lesbian feminists has been heating up lately. The two sides of the battle front are essentially this: Transactivists say it is “hate” to criticize […]

Joe Biden E-Mails Me

If you ever get signed up for one Democrat/liberal e-mail list, you will eventually be signed up for all Democrat/liberal e-mail lists.
