‘Erection Equals Consent’?

This is a phrase I never expected to encounter and, when I saw the headline, I misunderstood what the writer meant by it: The flesh is weak: On the Erection Equals Consent rape myth What I expected, based on that headline, was an argument by a feminist “deconstructing” the common claim that men are unable to […]

‘I Was Drunk. After That, It All Gets Kind of Blurry. … I Know We Had Sex.’

The headline is a quote from atheist Alison Smith, describing her hookup with atheist Michael Shermer at a 2008 atheist conference in Las Vegas, in a BuzzFeed article headlined: Will Misogyny Bring Down The Atheist Movement? My headline is better. Just sayin’ . . . Also, the BuzzFeed headline is asking the wrong question. It […]

Sudden Onset Lesbian Syndrome

“Men who rule, and male leftists who seek to rule, try to depoliticize sex . . . in order to prevent us from acting to end our oppression and challenging their power.

The Rocky Horror Parenting Show

Most parenting “trends” are bad. In general, as a parent, you should strive to be as old-fashioned as possible. Even if your children subsequently rebel against your authority — as, predictably, most kids do — you need to give them an actual authority to rebel against. And then you crush the rebellion like Darth Vader wiping […]

Lesbian Student Describes How She Was ‘Violated Physically and Emotionally’

This story shocked me. Sure, I understood how Lesbian Chic propaganda conceals the heartache, exploitation, abuse and violence that occurs between women. Yes, I realized that the “rape culture” rhetoric and angry lectures about “consent” were cynical political posturing intended to leverage the militant anti-male/anti-heterosexual ideology of radical feminism being promulgated by Women’s Studies programs […]

Angel Mario Vega, 23, is a varsity wrestler for Minnesota State University-Moorhead and also, according to police, a rapist: Vega’s roommate reportedly told police he and Vega had invited the two women over for drinks, and they became intoxicated after playing some drinking games and losing to the men.
