    There is a distinct lack of feminist celebration over these women ascending in these jobs — an absence that Republicans have criticized as hypocrisy. Shouldn’t we feminists be pleased by these shattered glass ceilings? ...Feminism isn’t about blind support for any woman who rises to power. The real political duplicity here is Republicans’ continued efforts to co-opt feminist language while actively curtailing women’s rights.

    It seems like every week, there’s a new story of a female high school or even middle school teacher who has been arrested for engaging in relations with one of her students.The women are often young, attractive, and often (seemingly) happily married. It has been happening so frequently that it appears to be a reasonably solid trend, and yet there’s little widespread call to end it.Selwyn Duke of the New American, in his article, Female Teachers Having Affairs With Young Boys — Now a Weekly Occurrence, says that while there are many high-profile cases the media has covered recently, the...

    Benedict Cumberbatch is putting his money where his mouth is in the pursuit of gender equality in filmmaking with a promise to reject projects where women don't earn the same. In recent months it was revealed that Mark Wahlberg negotiated a further $1.5 million for reshoots on All The Money In The World while co-lead Michelle Williams worked for just an $80 per day....

    I typically do not post in response to other posts or articles I find around the web, but today I’ll make an exception. I found this post entitled, “Masculine Pastors: The Battle They Face and Will Face Even More” over at What is Truth, a blog operated by an Independent Baptist pastor named Kent Brandenburg. My purpose isn’t to critically assess the post, mainly because I find myself in nearly complete agreement with it. Rather, I’d like to point the reader to it (RTWT) and use it as a jumping off point for some discussion of how men in our...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | May 7, 2018 | Shannon Watkins
    The supposedly academic discipline of Women’s Studies is “an arm of the women’s movement,” according to philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers. And that movement is political; political activism is at least as fundamental to women’s studies as its academic components. As it says in the National Women’s Studies Association’s Constitution, the underlying goal of women’s studies departments is that of “transform[ing] the world” to one “free of oppression.” One can argue whether that goal is overly ambitious; it is hard, however, to argue that it is not political. One area where this politicized agenda reveals itself in full is the euphemistically...

    Hey guys, if you’ve both been drinking, don’t take her back to your place. Because the rules are different for you and her. Now you can add ‘prison record’ to pregnancy and disease as risks you take in the hookup culture. Waking up in bed with a stranger could lead to criminal charges. Well, for the guy, anyway. That’s because Feminism is awfully selective in which parts of the law they want to women to be equal under. One female student didn’t take her school’s mandatory (and sketchy) sexual training course and was threatened with ‘academic probation’. Here’s what she...

    A veteran Labour activist who opposes transgender candidates taking places on all-women shortlists says she is facing an attempt to silence her after she was questioned by police over an alleged hate crime. Linda Bellos, an outspoken feminist and former Lambeth council leader, last night accused transgender campaigners of targeting her as part of a ‘war on women’.

    Zoe Adams, 19, has dressed up as a clown and put a pillow over Kieran Bewick's head to make their encounter more exhilarating on July 29 last year, Carlisle Crown Court heard. In what she described as an "overreaction", she whispered, "Trust me", to the then 17-year-old Bewick before stabbing him five times in the chest, arm and thigh with a 10-inch knife, collapsing his lung. Having seized Adams' iPhone, the court heard of images she had saved on the device, which included a blood-soaked woman with the caption "Murder is like a bag of chips: you can't stop after...

After the death of Barbara Bush claws came out double quick. Fresno State Professor Rhonda Jarrar labeled the former first lady, “an amazing racist…I’m happy the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeee.” Such eloquence. Such shortsighted ignorance from a supposedly well-educated professor trusted with the training up of our young people....

    Two days ago, it was reported that the Army will fall short of its goal to recruit 80,000 new soldiers this year. According to the Associated Press: Army officials say the updated goal will be 76,500. Six months into the recruiting year the service has brought in just 28,000 new soldiers. Army spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said the main effort is to grow the Army to 483,500, as approved by Congress. The struggle to meet this year’s higher recruiting numbers — which were a significant hike over last year’s recruiting mission of 69,000 — was expected, mainly due to the favorable...

    It is becoming increasingly difficult to raise boys in a feminist world. The mixed messages they are being flooded with in media, pop culture, and the education system is creating a nation of men who have no idea how to treat women—and a nation of women who have no idea how they should be treated. I recently read a quote by Elizabeth Acevedo, from her poem Spear, where she addresses the “rape culture” from a mother’s perspective. She writes, “I can’t trust this world to teach their sons how to treat my daughter. So I will raise her to be...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio, April 17, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The pro-abortion and LGBT movements are linked spiritually, ideologically and politically, a Christian pro-family advocate says. Because of this, it has become more important than ever before for pro-life and family advocates to unite against these enemies of life and the family. Former abortion volunteer and Christian convert Linda Harvey explained to a recent pro-life conference how the LGBT and abortion movements have the common elements of rejecting God’s plan for humanity and targeting children. Children are the targeted of sexualization via comprehensive sex education in schools, Harvey said, and through dangerous and...

    We’re back to this crap again. Progressives freaking out that a Chick-fil-A opened in New York City because Christians are creepy. First of all, it’s a delicious fast food chain. Two, because progressives hate it—you know it’s great. Feminist writer Jill Filipovic fired off red flares, warning fellow New Yorkers not to give the fast food chain their business. Of course, she got a backlash, in which she decided to mock her trolls saying they couldn’t spell “Chick-fil-A.” Don't give your money to bigots who stand against everything that makes your town the best in the world (diversity, ambitious women,...

Claire McCaskill (D) in the fall. The governor, Eric Greitens, made the move to keep the AG, Josh Hawley, from pursuing an investigation into the possibility that he broke the law when he used a fundraising list from a non-profit to collect funds for his political campaigns.

    When General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was picked by President Trump to serve as Secretary of Defense, the veteran community was largely ecstatic. Finally, someone would sit in the Pentagon’s top seat who was a warrior, and an enemy of the PC monster eating the military alive. While there is no doubt that General Mattis served honorably, there is growing doubt and indeed fear that he will never lift a finger to stop the social engineering that is putting the US military on a collision course to disaster. Therefore, US Defense Watch has comprised a list of questions for General...

Spielberg, who has directed every instalment in the blockbuster movie series, told the Sun that he was “pretty sure” the upcoming fifth outing for the explorer would be Ford’s swansong in the role, but that the franchise would “certainly continue after that”.

Which it will be, if nothing changes, mark my words. Across the military, standards are dropping faster than a Greg Maddux sinker; as lackeys, perfumed princes, feather merchants and cultural Marxist, Obama holdouts do their best to make the US Military the Laughing Stock of the World. Standards are hitting new lows across the board in the military, in order to fuel...

    Germany's military is rolling out a line of maternity uniforms for pregnant soldiers following successful field tests last year. Germany's defense ministry says some 80 volunteers tested a range of uniforms as well as underwear and tights, and their feedback will be considered. It said 'our goal in the end is to buy uniforms that best meet the requirements of the users.'
