    HALIFAX -- The women's march in Halifax was roiled by divisions, as members of an offshoot event showed up to call for the recognition of marginalized groups after some people said they felt unsafe at last year's gathering. Throngs of people returned to Halifax's Grand Parade square on Saturday for a rally on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration as U.S. president. People held up signs on issues ranging from worker's rights to the jailing of a Palestinian activist during an event that included a Mi'kmaq prayer, a Chinese lion dance, a traditional Indian dance and a drumming performance....

    The #MeToo backlash has arrived—and Samantha Bee has a lot to say about it. On Wednesday night, the Full Frontal host began her show by saying, “Now that we’re finally listening to women, some people are asking an important question: Should we stop listening to women?” She was referring to everyone from Catherine Deneuve to Liam Neeson, who have been wondering aloud whether the campaign to end sexual misconduct has led to a “witch hunt” atmosphere.

    In each of my daughters’ lives came the day in fifth grade when we had to sit on her bed and practise. I pretended to be the boy in class who was making her sick with dread. She had to look right at me and repeat the words until they felt possible, if not easy: “Don’t say that to me. Don’t do that to me. I hate it.” As much as I wanted to knock heads around, I knew the only real solution was to arm a daughter for self-defence. But why was it so hard to put teeth into...

    In 1975, 42 years before the comedian Aziz Ansari reportedly brought a date home to his apartment and repeatedly tried to initiate sex with her after she told him “next time” and “I don’t want to feel forced,” Susan Brownmiller published “Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape.” “All rape is an exercise in power,” Brownmiller wrote in 1975, “but some rapists have an edge that is more than physical.” Sometimes, the 1975 text suggests, rapists “operate within an emotional setting or within a dependent relationship that provides a hierarchical, authoritarian structure of its own that weakens a victim’s resistance,...
  • What Is the Real Message of #MeToo?

    01/18/2018 7:20:13 AM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | January 18, 2018 | Mona Charen
    The feminist website Babe published an account of a date gone bad. The pushback has been swift and sharp. I share some of the concerns of the critics, but I also think young women are sending a message that is being missed. The account by the anonymous "Grace" about a bad date with comedian Aziz Ansari was, if not "3,000 words of revenge porn" (Caitlin Flanagan's phrase), certainly a low journalistic blow. To permit an anonymous accuser to assassinate the character of a famous man is a sucker punch. He may have behaved badly, but even assuming that her entire...

    The sun has indeed set on the British Empire. The British Army of the Light Brigade, the Tommies of the Great War, the Desert Rats in North Africa, the Red Devils at Arnhem, the 2nd PARA in the Falklands, and the famed SAS from Benghazi to Northern Ireland to Afghanistan, is disappearing faster than a DACA deal on Dick Durbin’s desk. Like the US Army, the British Army has been invaded by social justice warriors and liberal clowns who think that diversity is a combat multiplier and sensitivity is the king of battle. The British Army Smoke and Mirrors, PAO...

    Margaret Atwood likes to stir the pot. Always has. You've got to like her for that. So when she wrote a piece in Saturday's Globe and Mail called "Am I a Bad Feminist?", she can't have been too surprised by the vitriol that ensued. What might surprise the rest of us is where it came from. These attackers were not the usual Atwood critics on the right. They are a generation of younger activists who think she has sold women, feminism – and especially victims of sexual assault – down the river.

    City Journal ^ | January 14, 2018 | Heather Mac Donald
    The New York Times now has a “gender editor” and “gender team,” created in the wake of the #MeToo movement to infuse feminist sensibility even further throughout the paper. The gender editor, Jessica Bennett, penned an op-ed last month that serves as a template for the hypocritical state of modern feminism. Bennett had unforced sex with a 30-year-old acquaintance when she was 19 because “saying ‘yes’ [was] easier than saying ‘no,’” as the op-ed’s title puts it. She allowed the encounter to proceed out of “some combination of fear (that I wasn’t as mature as he thought), shame (that I...

    It seems that I am a "Bad Feminist." I can add that to the other things I've been accused of since 1972, such as climbing to fame up a pyramid of decapitated men's heads (a leftie journal), of being a dominatrix bent on the subjugation of men (a rightie one, complete with an illustration of me in leather boots and a whip) and of being an awful person who can annihilate – with her magic White Witch powers – anyone critical of her at Toronto dinner tables. I'm so scary! And now, it seems, I am conducting a War on...

    Despite conventional knowledge that only women can breastfeed, a feminist professor at the University of Alberta, Canada, says this isn’t true, claiming that men and fathers are “increasingly” breastfeeding children by way of “induced lactation.” Writing in the journal Feminist Theory, sociology professor Robyn Lee argues that men can easily breastfeed infants if only they agree to go through the draconian process of hormone supplementation and near-constant nipple stimulation.

    More and more feminists are now ditching those pink, anti-Trump “pussyhats” on the grounds that they’re actually racist and transphobic. According to an article in the Detroit Free Press, many activists have concerns that the hat “excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”

    President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting. “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday. The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens....

    Members of the Women's March movement are no longer grabbing their trademark pink "pussy hats" out of concern they might be offensive to minorities and transgender women. Following Donald Trump's inauguration, marchers donned pink cat ears, a mocking reference to the president's hot mic comments saying that he enjoyed grabbing women by the "pussy." But the Detroit Free Press reports that women activists in Michigan and elsewhere are making a conscious effort to move away from the hat out of fear that it "excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don't have typical female genitalia...

    An engineer who was fired by Google for circulating an anti-diversity memo sued the company this week, alleging that the tech giant discriminates against white, conservative men. He’s likely not alone in that belief. There are other white men working in tech who believe their gender and race are making it difficult for them to get ahead, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center about diversity in the science and technology fields. Pew asked a nationally representative sample of white men with jobs in science, technology, math and engineering (or STEM) fields whether they thought their gender made...

    While the Me Too movement has brought down creepers in various industries, some feminists are feeling that this whole moment could be coming off the hinges. It’s devolved from rooting out legitimate predators via shared stories of sexual harassment to an inquisition-like mentality where some accusations are unproven. No, this is not to marginalize the women who came forward and torched Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, Louis C.K. and Charlie Rose. C.K. admitted to his misdeeds, as did Halperin and Rose. C.K’s latest movie has been shelved, while Rose and Halperin were fired from CBS News and...
