Queer Theory Pedophilia Jeopardy

One of the points I’ve repeatedly made about Third Wave feminism over the past five years is about Judith Butler’s role in popularizing a particular view of “gender.” In doing so, I dug deeply into the sources cited in Butler’s Gender Trouble, which is almost universally assigned as a required text in university Women’s Studies […]

Guy Gets Laid, Feminists Get Angry

  Feminists are enraged because the popular Instagram account “Humans of New York” did a profile of a pickup artist: “I was like an ‘incel’ kid. I’d never had a girlfriend. I’d only had sex with prostitutes. I was very suicidal. Then one day I was standing next to a cute girl at a bus […]

In Which @LaurenDuca Gets Cancelled

  The first time I took notice of Lauren Duca was in June 2016, when she wrote a Teen Vogue article about herpes that was simply false. Teen Vogue subsequently ceased print publication after publishing an article about anal sex, and I wrote in November 2017: In the months leading up to the 2016 election, Teen […]

Fascism or Feminism? Amanda Marcotte Says We Have Only Two Choices, So …

    It’s been a while since we’ve taken notice of Amanda Marcotte, but the living embodiment of evil has not been idle, nor has she been less ridiculous than usual, it’s just that Trump Derangement Syndrome has produced so much craziness on the Left that Amanda is less obtrusive nowadays. This week, however, Ms. […]

Fat, Black, Queer and ANGRY!

    Ashleigh Shackelford (@ashleighthelion on Twitter) has described herself as “a queer, nonbinary Black fat femme writer,” complaining in 2016 she was “always scripted as the angry Black bitch” in her “organizing spaces.” As a one-woman embodiment of the identity politics that now defines the Democrat Party, Ms. Shackelford has few rivals, which may […]

‘Monster People’: Were Alec Holowka’s Fears Paranoid — Or Prophetic?

  Last week, independent videogame developer Alec Holowka committed suicide four days after being accused by Zoe Quinn of abusive behavior when Holowka and Quinn briefly lived together in 2009. Nearly three years before his suicide, Holowka wrote a Facebook post in which he said “monster people” in the gaming community were attempting to destroy […]
