Feminist Mom: ‘Memes Are Turning Teenage Boys Into White Supremacists!’

  MORROW COUNTY, Ohio Saturday morning, we were driving across West Virginia, and my wife asked me to find some Christian music on the radio. So I’m searching down on the low end of the FM bandwidth — between 88 and 92, where such stations are usually found — and I come across an NPR […]

Twitter Bans Iraq Veteran Jesse Kelly; Glenn Reynolds Quits Platform in Protest

Nobody likes a bully, and if the critics of “toxic masculinity” were […]

‘The Least Worthwhile People’ and @The_Moviebob’s Darwinian Inversion

  If you don’t know who Bob Chipman is, it’s not your fault. He’s an untalented nobody with a YouTube channel who was a movie critic or something for a site called The Escapist until (a) in 2014 he became obsessed with ranting against #GamerGate and (b) in 2015 was laid off from The Escapist, […]
