The Low-Hanging Fruit of Feminism

Andrea Grimes (@andreagrimes) used to be a pro-life Christian, until she went to college: “Suddenly: I was the dirty, filthy slut. I was the horny bitch.” By 2009, she had apparently contracted human papillomavirus (HPV) which resulted in cervical dysplasia — “atypical squamous cells” — a potentially pre-cancerous condition that required $5,000 in treatment. This […]

Harvard Sluts and the Thought Police

Badger Pundit called my attention to a column in the Harvard University student newspaper by freshman Nian Hu: I am a feminist. I believe in the equality of the sexes. For me, feminism means freedom: freedom to dress the way I want, freedom to choose whether or not to get pregnant, freedom to say no to […]

Feminism and First-World Problems: ‘Hypervigilance’ as Irrational Phobia

Jessica Valenti wants mentally ill women to know that their mental illness is the fault of the oppressive patriarchy: A study published this month in the journal Sex Roles reveals that some of the sexism women face — from catcalling and sexual harassment to sexual objectification and violence — makes women generally more fearful and […]

Benjamin Levin, born 1952, was arrested […]

Corey Mock is not a rapist, but he is also no longer a wrestler at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, because he was accused of rape by a fellow UTC student named Molly Morris. Morris’s version of the story is told at Vice Sports and includes the claim that someone at a party spiked her drink. […]

UVA Fraternity Cleared by Police, But Fraternities Are Punished Anyway

Jackie’s story was fake, but as Allahpundit says, “someone needs to intervene to stop the sort of gang rape that never actually happened to Jackie,” so despite the dishonesty and journalistic malpractice, there are new rules for fraternities at the University of Virginia: The University chapter of Phi Kappa Psi was officially reinstated by both […]

Feminism: Equality in Misery

Miriam Mogilevsky (@sondosia) is allegedly a human being, although manifestly lacking in empathy and filled with a hateful appetite for sadistic revenge, which is to say she is a feminist. Her numerous efforts to destroy civilization include her advocacy of atheism, because those who hate humanity usually begin by hating God. She developed advanced skills in intellectual […]
