The Failed Heterosexual

“Difficult.” That word came to mind today while I was reading a woman’s account of how, at age 30, she suddenly decided she’s a lesbian. Before quoting any of her story, let me say that there is a phrase popularized by the pickup artist (PUA) community,”hit the wall.” This term describes the point in a […]

The World Has Gone Mad

  The site Medium.com is an interesting platform, which I have not previously used, but this topic seemed appropriate for a first effort: The rise of transgender mania — for which Bruce “Caitlin” Jenner is the celebrity poster boy/girl — can best be understood as a belated consequence of culture shifts that occurred 40 or […]

More Feminist Tumblr Stupidity

Here is a classic in the annals of bad logic: I’ve never met a self-identified men’s rights activist in real life and I’m guessing that’s due to any combination of the following reasons: 1.

God and Man at #Skepticon: Atheist @RichardCCarrier Gets Banned

On @Anne_Theriault and the Endless Futility of Feminist Revenge Fantasies

  Remember Jian Ghomeshi? He was the famous-in-Canada guy who was accused of rape and acquitted in a trial earlier this year. Some people might conclude that a “not guilty” verdict means that Jian Ghomeshi was, you know, not guilty. However, feminists in Canada had decided Jian Ghomeshi was guilty long before the trial began. To […]

  The name Mara Wilson probably means nothing to you, and I’d never heard of her until today when I saw this headline: Mara Wilson is Queer: Actress Felt Moved To Say She’s One Of Us Considering that this headline is from the lesbian feminist site Autostraddle, you might think “one of us” is a […]

Shorter @AmandaMarcotte: ‘Masculinity Killed Those Gay People in Orlando’

“The horror story of Orlando lays bare what damage that this kind of dominance-oriented masculinity does to our society . . . It’s a stark reminder of why we, as a country, need to get past the politics of tough guy posturing and move towards a more thoughtful, inclusive society.” — Amanda Marcotte, June 13, […]
