The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Heh. Heh. Heh.

One of my favorite lines in Ghostbusters: Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn’t have to produce anything! You’ve never been out of college! You don’t know what it’s like out there! I’ve worked in the private sector. They expect results. The insulation of the academic cocoon has been […]

Exceptions, Rules and Tumblr Feminism

How many data points are necessary to demonstrate a pattern? In the news business, the old joke was, “Three’s a trend,” describing the unfortunately too-common method by which feature writers manufacture “trend” stories from thin air. When the “Sex Trouble” series began way back when, I was extraordinarily conscious of the “arguing by exceptions” trick […]

‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz Releases Crappy Porn Video With French Title

“Ceci N’est Pas Un Viol” is French for “This Is Not a Rape” and if recent Columbia University graduate Emma Sulkowicz intended this eight-minute video as “art,” it’s very bad art. Sulkowicz claimed she was raped by fellow student Paul Nungesser, who was cleared of wrongdoing in subsequent investigations by the university and by New […]

The Feminist-Industrial Complex: Fat Lesbians vs. the ‘Heteronormative Gaze’

Does the “fat acceptance” movement “destabilize the heteronormative gaze”? Can women overcome “gender inequality” by a “radical rejection of beauty as feminine aspiration”? Those possibilities are suggested by two Canadian sociologists in an article, included in a leading Women’s Studies textbook, that compared Dove’s “Real Beauty” advertising campaign to a protest by lesbian activists in […]

The Naïvietê of a ‘Skeptic’

@The_SkepDick is a partisan Democrat masquerading as an objective observer, which is to say that he is no different than about 90% of American journalists except for the fact that he is just an anonymous troll account on the Internet and not a multimillionaire celebrity like George Stephanopoulos, but I digress . . . @The_SkepDick posted […]

N.C. Schools Employ Radical Lesbian Who Called Marriage ‘Slavery’ for Women

By Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain on Twitter) A pioneering lesbian activist who called heterosexuality “the ideology of male supremacy” and condemned marriage as “slavery” for women is now working as a math teacher in North Carolina.   As a graduate student in 1969, Margaret Small helped begin what became the Women’s Studies program at the […]

Lesbian Harassment in College? Lawsuit Alleges ‘Sexually Charged’ Hazing

Earlier this month, St. Joseph’s University announced it had suspended its women’s softball program after “a parent and student came forward in late March, alleging freshman had been forced to drink alcohol and engage in sexual conduct when they joined the team in the fall.” Four players were suspended in April after reports of what […]

War Against Human Nature: What Feminists Pay $47,030 a Year to Learn

“Feminism confuses many people who do not understand that the movement has a political philosophy — a theory — and that this theory is fundamentally incompatible with human nature. In fact, feminists do not believe there is such a thing as ‘human nature.’ Instead, they insist, all human behavior (especially including sexual behavior) is ‘socially […]
