The Crazy Feminism of Joyce Trebilcot

America lost a valuable source of feminist craziness when Professor Joyce Trebilcot died in 2009 at age 74. For more than three decades, Trebilcot supplied the feminist movement with its necessary raw material — insanity — and in its obituary of this distinguished academic, Washington University St. Louis described her contributions: Trebilcot, who joined the […]

‘Vagina Warrior Lynch Mobs’

Thanks to Darleen Click for that phrase, describing the feminists who have ginned up a campus sex panic with hysterical claims about a (non-existent) “rape epidemic” at colleges and universities. Rape has real victims — including murdered victims like Hannah Graham — but this phony hysteria has real victims, too, including male students accused of […]

Postmodern College, Postmodern Love

Otterbein University is a small, private liberal arts college in Westerville, Ohio, near Columbus. Like most such schools in America, it began with an explicitly Christian purpose: The university was founded in 1847 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. . . . The university is named for United Brethren founder the Rev. […]

Lawyer: Convicted Sex Teacher Has ‘Significant Psychological Issues’

Lauren Harrington Cooper, 32, was Exhibit A earlier this year in my argument “that America’s public schools are staffed by sex-crazed perverts.” Every day brings new reports of teachers who cannot restrain their depraved craving for teenage flesh. Ms. Cooper was an English teacher in Pennsylvania whose modus operandi involved giving boys blow jobs in […]

Bad Ideas and Bad Prose at Cornell

Cornell University may be the only Ivy League school with a “diversity” quota for the mentally ill. Or maybe the students were sane until they got to Ithaca and started studying under the tutelage of radical professors. At any rate, the Cornell campus is swarming with lunatics: A student-sponsored event at Cornell University (CU) claimed […]

Gender Theory Hits K-12 Schools

When I describe radical feminism as taught in university Women’s Studies programs, one typical reaction is, “So what? That’s just a bunch of academics. Besides, wait until those idiots get their Women’s Studies degrees. Where are they gonna get a job?” Maybe your child’s school. Katherine Timpf reports at National Review: A Nebraska school district has instructed its […]

What’s Up at Bryn Mawr?

Brenna Levitin (@brennalevitin) is a junior at Bryn Mawr College (annual tuition $45,540), an elite women’s college in Philadelphia with an undergraduate enrollment of fewer than 1,500 students. Ms. Levitin describes herself as a “radical feminist” and has been working on a very special project at Bryn Mawr: Since May, Brenna Levitin, the Greenfield Digital […]

‘Magnet School,’ IYKWIMAITYD

Brooklyn Technical High School is a “magnet school” where the students include New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s son Dante. Sean Shaynak, 44, was a popular math and physics teacher at Brooklyn Tech. Shaynak was very, very popular. Not in a good way: A New York City public school math teacher accused of having sex […]
