The Sweet Hangover of Victory

Tuesday’s Republican tsunami left Harry Reid disgraced and desperate to rescue some semblance of Democrat relevance: Reid has run the US Senate for the past eight years like a dictatorship, steadily eroding minority privileges to the point where Republicans couldn’t offer amendments or put up any significant resistance to Barack Obama’s radical appointments, unless Democrats […]

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 […]

Women’s Studies Major Gets Spanked

Literally. @LoriAdorable is the Twitter handle of a feminist who calls her Tumblr feed “woman-centered anti-oppression analysis”: Lori Adorable started out by taking a different (though hardly avant-garde) approach to being naked on the Internet. She wanted to de-objectify herself as an exhibitionist submissive woman by placing her public displays of sexuality within the context […]

Racism, Classism and Catcalling (or, #Feminism Is for Rich White Lesbians)

Time for a little of what feminists call “intersectionality.” A video went viral in which a woman walking on New York City streets is catcalled or subjected to what feminists call “street harassment.” Allahpundit analyzes both the video and the phenomenon in terms of why do men do this? Before we address the particulars of […]

Feminists, as we […]

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 […]

Another Feminist ‘Success’ Story

Tobias Hill-Meyer (@Tobitastic) is the son of two proud lesbian feminist mothers. You ask: “How lesbian feminist are they?” Toby was born after his mother went into labor at a Sweet Honey in the Rock concert in 1983. From a 1988 essay his mother Jennifer Meyer wrote: When my first son was born, I promised […]

The Gay Hate Machine

Janna Darnelle is a mother whose ex-husband destroyed their marriage because he became homosexual. Rivka Edelman grew up as the the daughter of a lesbian couple. Edleman describes how Darnelle was viciously harassed for criticizing the gay agenda: Janna Darnelle’s recent Public Discourse essay, “Breaking the Silence: Redefining Marriage Hurts Women Like Me—and Our Children,” reveals what is […]
