The @AmandaMarcotte Birth Control ObamaCare Fear-Mongering Crusade

Donald Douglas points out that everyone’s favorite baby-killing enthusiast has found a new focus for her feminist lunatic rage, namely a pending Supreme Court case about the ObamaCare mandate that insurers must provide free contraceptive coverage. Before addressing Amanda Marcotte’s irrational claims directly, let me ask: Does anyone else remember the Iraq War military draft […]

At War With God and Nature: @AmandaMarcotte’s Darwinian Fate

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” – Genesis 1:28 (KJV) “I don’t want a baby. […]

Death by ‘Choice’: Contraceptive Risk Means ‘Safe Sex’ Can Be Deadly

Erika Langhart died after using ‘third generation’ birth control. It’s perfectly harmless — until it kills you: What friends of Durango [Colorado] native Erika Langhart seemed to love most about her was her humor. “She had great stories. Ridiculous things always seemed to happen to her,” said Jessica Knutzon, 24, a fellow American University alumni. […]

‘Fairness’ and Feminism

Just to refresh my memory, I’ve spent the past few days re-reading Susan Brownmiller’s feminist memoir In Our Time. You have to be a hard-boiled, strong-minded conservative not to be outraged by Brownmiller’s account of the extreme workplace inequality that once typified her own field, journalism. And the implicit assumption — this is one of […]

So I Guess @PaulWaldman1′s Basic Message Is: ‘Vote Democrat, You Sluts!’

Before addressing Paul Waldman’s partisan nonsense, let’s first briefly discuss chlamydia. This is one of the lesser-known sexually transmitted diseases, not one of the big-name celebrity STDs like syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes and HIV. Despite its comparative obscurity, however, chlamydia is potentially devastating to women. The disease can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic inflammatory […]

‘Helpless and Hopeless Creatures’

“Nobody cares about ‘social issues’ anymore, we have been told. Democrats have become the Pervert Party . . . and Republicans are now the Party That Dare Not Disagree. Morality is no longer a matter of the divine ‘thou shalt not’ that Jehovah declared to the Israelites at Mount Sinai. Nowadays, moral authority is determined […]

Contraceptive Culture: Normalizing the Abnormal and, Also, Vice-Versa

Sex is about reproduction. This is the natural function of sex, biologically speaking, and it’s odd how the same liberal fanatics who enjoy endlessly lecturing us about Darwinism and global warming — “The science is settled!” — are so unscientific about sex. Instead, the sexual enthusiasms of liberals tend toward sterile non-procreative acts, while they […]

Divorced Woman Becomes Victim of Patriarchal Oppression and Biology …

. . . but, yeah, mainly it’s the biology: [A] 38-year-old woman . . . is a client of Ronald G. Lieberman, a family law attorney in Haddonfield, N.J. Mr. Lieberman is asking his client’s soon-to-be-former husband of eight years to pay $20,000 to cover her egg-freezing procedure, medication costs and several years of egg […]

Stop the Killing. Stop the Crying.

Trang Bang, South Vietnam, June 8, 1972 (Photo: Nick Ut, Associated Press) Did I ever mention that I can’t stand to hear children cry? It’s rather odd, considering I’m a father of six, that I can’t stand the sound of a crying child. When my kids were babies, I’d take them for long walks, rocking them […]

About Paul Ehrlich and ‘The Most Spectacularly Wrong Book Ever Written’

Cover of Time magazine, Jan. 11, 1960 “You’re f–king up our future. . . . What do you think we learn at school? This is what we learned about. . . . We’re the 99 percent.” – 17-year-old student, St. Mary’s Academy, 2011 In an interview with Ed Driscoll, Jonathan V. Last discussed Paul Ehrlich’s […]

Old and Boring: ‘Safe Sex’
New and Hot: ‘Let’s Make Babies’

Young folks have discovered a kinky new sexual phenomenon: If a man places his penis inside a woman’s vagina, she can have a baby. This shockingly weird activity is being promoted by a Web site called 1Flesh.org, whose founders describe their revolutionary idea: We want awesome marriages and mind-blowing sex lives. We want women and men to […]

Five Academy Award-Winning Beauties Who Are Moms (Unlike Ashley Judd)

When people think of factors involved in Hollywood success, motherhood probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Despite what the embittered rantings of childless pro-abortion fanatic Ashley Judd might lead you to believe, however, many of the world’s most famous actresses have shown that women can have glamour, a successful movie career, critical […]
