    The Hill ^ | 10/17/18 | MEGAN KELLER
    Scammers in Bangladesh created over 1,700 fake Women's March Facebook pages in order to sell t-shirts, according to a CNN report. CNN reported the Facebook pages appeared to be run by local Women's March organizers when in reality they were being created out of the South Asian country, with some of the pages linking to web sites intended to design and sell t-shirts and other merchandise. The news agency brought the list of false groups to Facebook over the weekend, which swiftly deleted them and informed CNN that it was conducting its own investigation into the matter. "These Pages and...

    Rasmussen ^ | October 15, 2018 | Rasmussen
    Hillary Clinton last week urged Democrats not to be civil with Republicans over political issues, prompting rare disagreement from former First Lady Michelle Obama. Voters also disagree with Clinton but, unlike her, don’t expect things to improve even if Democrats return to power in Congress. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that a plurality (47%) disagrees with Clinton’s statement: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Thirty-nine percent (39%) agree with the statement, while 14% are undecided. (To see...

    Breitbart ^ | 10-15-2018 | Tom Ciccotta
    A retired history professor from Grinnell College and feminist announced that she wishes that “all men were dead” in a column for the Washington Post over the weekend. Retired history professor Victoria Bissell Brown published a bizarre column in the Washington Post on Friday in which she detailed an outburst she had at her husband that included her wishing for the death of all men. I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small....

    Chicks on the Right ^ | October 14, 2018 | Hannah Bleau
    Some parents are proud when their kids are kind, generous, loving and compassionate. Feminist parents are proud when their kid CRIES after encountering a non-feminist. That’s exactly what Maggie Gyllenhaal’s daughter did. She’s obviously proud, because she told the story to everyone on “The View.” “She ran into somebody recently, a little girl her age, who said she wasn’t feminist and my daughter was astonished … she came home and cried to me about it,” she said. The View ✔ @TheView @mgyllenhaal shares about her 12-year-old daughter, who she calls an activist: "She ran into somebody recently, a little girl...

    Breitbart ^ | 10-14-2018 | Dr Susan Berry
    Cultural commentator Camille Paglia said in a recently published video that second-wave feminism – in its attempt to destroy men – is also destroying women and our culture. A video of Paglia’s discussion at the Battle of Ideas festival in London in October 2016 has been made available on YouTube and was recently linked to on the Drudge Report. The video is released with the launch of Paglia’s new book, Provocations: Collected Essays. The feminist icon – who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia...

    I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 2018), I announced that...

    The Federalist ^ | 10/12/18 | Albert Marrewa
    For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now.All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to see...

    Jasmin Kaur wrote her poem “her voice” in December 2016. At a time predating the official start of the Trump presidency, her words were meant as a guiding principle for Sikh women like her, who struggle against racism and the feeling of invisibility that accompanies it. In her poem, she writes: Scream, So that one day a hundred years from now Another sister will not have to dry her tears Wondering where in history she lost her voice But in an ironic turn, last week Kaur saw her poem go viral in the days following Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to...
  • 'Womxn' row as companies worry the word 'women' excludes transgender people

    UK Telegraph ^ | October 10, 2018 | Helena Horton
    Companies have come under fire for using the word “womxn” instead of “woman,” after worrying the latter word excludes transgender people. Feminists have argued that it is biological women who are being excluded by the newly popular word, and that no one calls men “mxn.” The Wellcome Collection apologised on Wednesday after being criticised for using the word to describe women and non-gender-conforming people in promotional material for its new exhibition “daylighting”, a piece of artwork that “explores the presence of womxn through their art, thinking and speculations”.

    Feminism has devolved from a quest to level the playing field in work, education, and money access, to a Bitchy insistence that Womyn are the Queens of the Universe, and ALL MEN should Bow Down to Them. – The Declination Accordingly, they celebrate when the likes of privileged white males like John Mayer -  crooner of Coffee Shoppe genre ballads like Your Body Is A Wonderland and Love on the Weekend – do so. Indeed, at age 40 the womanizing singer has found the New Left Religion of Womyn. The perpetually adolescent jerk has been woke, he now wants...

    Townhall ^ | October 8, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Some people had trouble with the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. For left-wingers, it was another episode of Meltdown Theater. Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed by a 50-48 vote on Saturday, but the road to get here was insanely bumpier than originally projected. Three sexual misconduct allegations—all without evidence or corroborating witnesses—opened the door for Democrats, who dropped these allegations at the last minute, to execute one of the most vicious character assassination campaigns in recent memory. If they couldn’t block him, they were going to destroy his life, his family, and his reputation. All I can say is I...

    Even before the sexual revolution destroyed the norms that once governed the male libido and that steadied the relationship between the sexes, sex was the realm of ambiguity and indirection. The #BelieveSurvivors contingent asserts that survivors rarely if ever lie about their experiences—meaning, they rarely make those experiences up out of whole cloth. This assertion is mostly true; in most cases of alleged campus rape, something did happen between the accused and the accuser. The issue is how to classify what happened. (To be sure, there are rapes that go unreported, but there are also outright fabrications, such as the...

    NY Post ^ | Oct 2017 | Naomi Schaefer Riley
    Pennsylvania Rep. Tim Murphy’s political career came to an abrupt halt after the Pittsburgh Post Gazette caught him pressuring his mistress to have an abortion, even while he pretended to be pro-life. The pregnancy turned out to be a false alarm, but Murphy’s hypocrisy and the end of his career were real. Yet before we drop this one in the file marked “feminist victories,” it is worth understanding another lesson. Abortion-rights activists say efforts to restrict the procedure are simply a way of men exercising control over women’s bodies — that abortion-on-demand really is the key to empowering and freeing...

    It would make sense that the people most likely to believe the testimony of Dr Christine Blasey Ford would be the ones who look like her: middle-aged, white women. But polls and even a cursory glance at cable news show this not to be the case. Fox News host Martha MacCallum said that following Ford’s testimony, she kept hearing from moms who “fear due process is dead”. If Brett Kavanaugh is denied a supreme court confirmation over Ford’s sexual assault allegations, these women fear their sons could be subjected to “an unfair precedent” one day. It’s a view very much...

    This country is in the grips of a defiant surge of protest against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a mass, coast-to-coast rebellion—and it’s being led and supported overwhelmingly by women. Over the past several weeks, thousands of women have come forward to organize their communities and share their stories of surviving sexual assault. They have argued powerfully that a man who has perpetrated such an act and refused to take responsibility has no place on the Supreme Court. They have told these stories outside district offices from Anchorage to Miami, and inside the Capitol—including, yes, in an elevator. They are...

    The feminists are organizing on Facebook again and one of my girlfriends sent me their announcement for entry into our "Virtue Signal Contest" that is ongoing. We try to outdo one another in finding the dumbest virtue signals out there and this takes the cake. The idea is that if we all change our Facebook profile photos to black squares, the men will all wonder where we went. It's like the paintings in Harry Potter. We'll just walk out of our profile photos and every man on social media is going to be panicked about where all the women went!...
