What Self-Hatred Looks Like

@LisaKudrow expresses #feminism by obverse reaction: Lisa Kudrow: ‘Gay Men Are Superior Beings In My Mind’ . . . Although she notes that “the people I work with are gay,” Kudrow says her love of the gay community extends beyond the confines of Hollywood, too. “I don’t know who I’m going to offend by leaving […]

A #GamerGate Oddity

The troll @MMashItMatt popped up in my Twitter timeline Tuesday to call me a “piece of sh*t doxxer.” Now, there are two kinds of trolls: The worthless pests I block, and the potentially dangerous creeps I don’t block because I want to keep an eye on them.

Bill Maher and author and neuroscientist Sam Harris battled actor/director Ben Affleck on Real Time on Friday concerning Maher’s recent remarks criticizing Islam. “Why are you so hostile about this?” Maher asked Affleck. “It’s gross, it’s racist,” Affleck replied. “It’s so not,” Maher insisted, though Affleck compared […]

The Democrat Lifestyle™

William Costello was a serial rapist and a Colorado Democrat. But I repeat myself. Costello, 47, was arrested in July 2012 after he assaulted an old man in the parking lot of a Denver supermarket. Everett Stadig, 69, was collecting signatures on a pro-life petition in front of King Sooper grocery store when he encountered […]

Americans demand that action be taken to deal with two grave threats, radical Islamic terrorism and NFL running backs: The N.F.L. remained on the defensive Tuesday as questions mounted over its handling of the domestic abuse case involving one of its star running backs, Ray Rice. Commissioner Roger Goodell went on national television to address […]
