What #Feminism Hath Wrought

@LauraKipnis is an expert on why men deserve your contempt. Just in time for the holidays, feminism is the gift that keeps on giving, and another academic sadist tells us what’s wrong with men: Laura Kipnis begins her preface to Men: Notes from an Ongoing Investigation . . . with an interesting idea: Writing about someone marks […]

In #GamerGate Battle, Feminists Predictably Resort to Totalitarian Tactics

Randi Harper (@freebsdgirl) is an unattractive woman with blue hair who is into (a) video games and (b) totalitarian ideology. In the 21st century, where “harassment” has been re-defined to mean “expressing disagreement with a feminist,” Harper decided to create a blacklist of Twitter users who support the #GamerGate project: In a sign of how frenzied, panicky […]

‘I Suffer From Oppression’

So says @JaclynArcher in a column for Eastern Washington University’s student newspaper, The Easterner: What is oppression?

Feminists: They’re Not About the ‘D’

How many times do I have to say feminism is a journey to lesbianism before people start waking up to the truth? Liberal guys need to realize their “male feminist” thing is never going to work: A male-led campaign to promote affirmative consent for sex at DePaul University — which is nominally Catholic but runs […]
