We Are So Doomed

If you’re an optimist, you obviously don’t have young children, especially daughters. To be a parent in 2014 is to know for a certainty that the social fabric of our civilization is rapidly unraveling: An 11-year-old girl from Arkansas gave her family the scare of their lives last week when she ran away from home […]

Enjoying Buzzword-Free Masculinity

by Smitty I’m old enough to remember when duty, honor, and manhood went both without saying and without marketing buzzwords: Spornosexual, lumbersexual & a man walk into a bar. Bartender looks at the man, curious. Man: “I don’t know, either.” http://t.co/klv4qSeQwX — Reform Or Die (@smitty_one_each) December 3, 2014 For a lumbersexual definition, dive into […]

Prayer For A Gay Rabbi

by Smitty In reference to this: Not only is gay marriage now the law for over two-thirds of Americans while the value of marriage in general has been declining for decades; not only are television, film, music, and video games more vulgar than we could have imagined in 1980; but more Americans are declaring themselves […]

In #GamerGate Battle, Feminists Predictably Resort to Totalitarian Tactics

Randi Harper (@freebsdgirl) is an unattractive woman with blue hair who is into (a) video games and (b) totalitarian ideology. In the 21st century, where “harassment” has been re-defined to mean “expressing disagreement with a feminist,” Harper decided to create a blacklist of Twitter users who support the #GamerGate project: In a sign of how frenzied, panicky […]

Reconciled to Servitude

“Nor does the sexual promiscuity of Brave New World seem so very distant. There are already certain American cities in which the number of divorces is equal to the number of marriages. In a few years, no doubt, marriage licenses will be sold like dog licenses, good for a period of twelve months, with no […]

Interstellar

– by Wombat-socho I was extremely fortunate to get a comp ticket to see Interstellar at the National Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center out by Dulles; first because the theater there is one of those ginormous IMAX installations, and second because Interstellar is a pretty good movie. Christopher Nolan deserves a lot of credit […]

UPDATE: @AmandaBynes Is Crazy

This isn’t necessarily news to anyone who has followed the (literally) insane misadventures of Miss Ultimate Starlet Meltdown: Amanda Bynes is flat-out admitting it. She was tired and fell asleep on a couch at her local mall, the Beverly Center. It’s the latest step in the Amanda Bynes journey. She tweeted that she slept there […]

The #StreetHarassment Meme and #Feminism’s Kafkatrapping Tactics

The Left’s tactics aren’t hard to understand, really. The “catcall” video that went viral last week — see “Racism, Classism and Catcalling (or, #Feminism Is for Rich White Lesbians)” — was an Alinksy Rule 12 classic: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Heterosexual men are the target, obviously. Feminists want women […]
