Feminism as Sadistic Revenge Fantasy

“Radical feminism, by definition, seeks to dis-cover and examine the root of women’s global oppression by men, and the sources of male power.” — “Radfem 101: A Radical Feminist Primer” What is seldom noted in discussions of feminism is the extent to which the movement’s ideology represents a calculated appeal to the resentments of psychological […]

‘A License to Lie’

Hans Bader says the federal Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) “is gradually turning Title IX into a license to lie about sexual harassment and assault”: Courts have ruled that dishonest people who bring sexual harassment charges over conduct they falsely claim was unwelcome can be fired, in cases such as Vasconcelos v. […]

‘Feminist Motherhood Has Failed’

Only a feminist could describe pregnancy as “a woman growing the parasitic entity of a fetus in her,” and there is no limit to a radical lesbian feminist blogger’s absolute hatred of motherhood: Motherhood is at the heart of patriarchy.

The latest evidence: a first-of-its-kind European study that finds that the female brain can be drastically reshaped by treating it with testosterone over time. (Hat-tip: Instapundit.) Feminist […]

‘Hit-It-and-Quit-It on Tinder’

Online dating apps are fueling an “apocalypse” of hook-up culture, Nancy Jo Sales reports in a frightening Vanity Fair feature: [Alex] says that he himself has slept with five different women he met on Tinder — “Tinderellas,” the guys call them — in the last eight days. Dan and Marty, also Alex’s roommates in a […]

Dear Feminists: You Think Too Much

Not everything has meaning. Not everything requires critical analysis. Not everything is in need of a theory to explain it. Some things are really simple. They are what they are, and the temptation to intellectualize everything should be resisted. Consider, for example, a New York Times column by Emily Witt: Who could be cynical about […]
