Another Dead Cishet White Male

  If you are a heterosexual white man, feminists want you to die. So you can be sure that Jessica Valenti, Amanda Marcotte, Jaclyn Friedman and all their man-hating supporters are cheerfully celebrating the suicide of CNN’s celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain: Chef Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in Paris, by a […]

Latest #MeToo Target: Morgan Freeman

  What? You thought Oscar-winning elderly black men were exempt?

A rich girl, right? Wrong. In fact, my guesswork was […]

Is @NickCarter a Rapist?

So it was weird to see this headline: Nick Carter Accused of Rape by Dream’s Melissa Schuman; Backstreet Boy ‘Shocked and Saddened’ by Allegations Does this story make sense? You’re the most popular member of the […]

The Latest @LenaDunham Debacle: Feminist Becomes ‘Rape Truther’

Left to right: Lena Dunham, Aurora Perrineau, Murray Miller. When the University of Virginia rape hoax began to collapse under the weight of Jackie Coakley’s lies in December 2014, Amanda Marcotte coined the term “rape truther” to describe “people who want to deny that rape is a serious social problem.” This was a dishonest smear.
