Tumblr Feminism: Is It Worth $3?

  As a digital property, Tumblr is “effectively worthless,” according to financial analysts. The site’s lack of commercial value, however, does not prevent it from being a major platform for the dissemination of feminist ideology. This quote from Gail Dines, for example, was liked and reblogged nearly 3,000 times, and no one inside this online […]

$400 in 24 Hours (UPDATE: Thanks!)

Not much time to explain this, but I’m rattling the tip jar today because I need $400 by Friday morning. My youngest daughter has a school trip coming up and I promised my wife I’d raise the $200 needed by Friday. Then the cable company — our Internet service provider — demanded more than $200 […]

Feminism: A Problem, Not a Solution

The Ivy League Is DecadentĀ and Depraved, as I reminded readers a few weeks ago, and you’ll pardon me for quoting myself, but the evidence of elite depravity keeps slapping me in the face. Adriana Miele is a senior at Yale University: Brunch is the ideal time to do it. Dinner is usually too crowded, and […]
