The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

‘Equality’ and the Loss of Decency

  Maria Hernandez at Victory Girls notices that feminists are now complaining that men are being ostentatiously rude, i.e., failing to yield their seats to pregnant women on public transportation. In the years when I routinely rode the Metro to work in D.C., I was rather astonished by the lack of courtesy. The way I […]

The Butler Did It: ‘Gender Trouble’ and the Academic Roots of the #Transcult

  When I began researching feminism in 2014, one of the first controversies that came to my attention was the conflict between radical feminists and transgender activists.

Queer Feminist Update

  Some readers may remember Ellie (a/k/a “Gabi,” whose real name is Gabrielle), the Tampa art student whose anti-heterosexual Tumblr rant was featured here in February (“Your Homophobia Is a ‘Direct Threat’ of ‘Potential Violence,’ Says Queer Feminist”).

Flashback: Feminists Hate ‘Nice Guys’

  Amanda Marcotte has been lately busy promoting her book Troll Nation: How The Right Became Trump-Worshipping Monsters Set on Rat-F*cking Liberals, America, and Truth Itself, which is perhaps the most unnecessarily far-fetched explanation of why Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. Even more weird than the “Russians hacked the election” conspiracy theory, Marcotte wants us […]

Murder, Lies and Feminism

1994: L.A. police pursue murder suspect O.J. Simpson. The word “mansplaining” was inspired (although not coined) by Rebecca Solnit, whose book Men Explain Things to Me became a bestseller. In this book, Ms. Solnit writes: “So many men murder their partners and former partners that we have well over a thousand homicides of that kind […]

Toxic Intersectionality Syndrome

“Word salad is a ‘confused or unintelligible mixture of seemingly random words and phrases’ . . . used to describe a symptom of a neurological or mental disorder.” — Wikipedia If you really want to know why Hillary lost in 2016, and why Democrats have descended into incoherent hysteria since Trump became president, look no […]
