Just as the phrase “climate change” fails to capture the fundamental nature of a theory that was originally labeled “global warming,” the commonly heard phrase “toxic masculinity” substitutes similarly imprecise language for the more explicit notion that the biologically ordained striving by men to achieve dominance is bad. Many women nowadays wish to bury the fact that their female ancestors sought protection by attaching themselves to dominant males; they suffer under the illusion that the cave man days are over and that as a result, men must now change their biology.
Oh Oh, that was pulled quick!

February 1 marked World Hijab Day, an annual expression of solidarity with “millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.” Less than two weeks earlier, on January 20, a Women’s March was held — with rallies across the United States — to re-enact the protests of the previous year against the election of President Donald Trump.
Bizarrely, Western feminists devoting their energy to supporting the right of Muslim women to wear the Islamic headscarf and highlighting the “MeToo” and “Time’s Up” movements against sexual harassment, have been ignoring the genuine plight of their counterparts in the Islamic Republic of Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
Feminist organizers who work for the Women’s March launched a new project Sunday to dismantle and redistribute the “social and financial” power of white women.
The Confront White Womanhood project encourages white women to stop participating in the “oppression of people of color” by educating themselves about how they’ve been “accomplices” in white supremacy and “violence” against racial minorities.
“For centuries, violence has been done in the name of — and even physically enacted by — white women,” its mission statement says. “It is time to be accountable for the harm we cause, however unintentional it may be.”
Of all the photos of my wedding day, one has always carried a particular, unique kind of joy. It is an image not of me but of my bridesmaid, an Iraqi refugee, throwing her bare arms gleefully into the air, her black curls tumbling freely down her back. She had chosen the occasion of my wedding to remove the headscarf she had worn for decades – of her own choosing, to be clear, but with the belief that wearing it was a measure of her piety, her integrity, her virtue.
On Thursday, February 8, 2018, Tucker Carlson featured Sonia Ossorio, president of the New York chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW). The portion begins here at 20:30. The interview occurred because Macy’s has decided to unveil Muslim garb – i.e., the hijab. The brainchild of Muslim convert Lisa Vogl, the items are part of Macy’s development program,The Workshop, which “helps nurture businesses owned by minorities and women.”
In the 1999 film titled Shackled: Women, Shiren Samieh explains that “the hijab comes from the Arabic word meaning ‘curtain,'” and as such, it is intended to be “a limitation” so that women are restricted in movement, thinking, and freedom. In fact, Islamic religious leaders maintain that a woman who is not covered will excite men, and women who are uncovered lead themselves to being raped.
…the only thing I’m endorsing today with you and with all of your viewers is that discrimination is alive and well for women in this country.”
“Yeah, I’ve noticed, in the form of the hijab, for example, just to name one,” he shot back.
In typical liberal fashion, one California lawmaker allegedly doesn’t think the rules she advocates apply to herself.
California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, who appeared in Time magazine last year for her work advocating the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct, stands accused of sexually assaulting one man and sexually harassing another.
“Sweden has the first feminist government in the world,” brags the Swedish government on its official website. Meaning what, exactly?
“This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities… a gender equality perspective is brought into policy-making on a broad front… The Government’s most important tool for implementing feminist policy is gender mainstreaming, of which gender-responsive budgeting is an important component.”
Accompanying this patch of bureaucratic rhetoric is a photograph of Sweden’s current government of twelve women and eleven men.
Remind you of an idiot peoples?
If you say the name Emma Sulkowicz in most places, people will look at you funny. She’s not a household name by any stretch of the imagination. But when you explain that she is the student who lugged a mattress around campus to bolster her claim that she’d been sexually assaulted, people may well remember her.
Sulkowicz continued her performance art, and even was allowed a special privilege by Columbia University to do so at graduation, despite all the evidence which refuted her charge of sexual assault.
When people buy a product, they probably don’t want it to police their behavior. Unless it’s bought for that specific purpose, they want the product to work with them, not against them. This isn’t rocket science.
However, Amazon’s Alexa software has now changed its response to a certain stimulus — namely, calling it sexist names — from “thanks for the feedback” to “I’m not going to respond to that.” Further, the device will also respond to the question of whether it’s a feminist with: “I am a feminist. As is anyone who believes in bridging the inequality between men and women in society.”
Alexa is not a woman. Alexa is not suffering. Women do not suffer when people call software a slut.
From the Weather Network:
The unqualified TV “weather personality” is a thing of the past. The people who deliver your weather updates today are typically well-versed in the study of meteorology and the technologies that support it. Many even have degrees in the field — so why do we still refer to female meteorologists as “weather girls”?
Some of your most-trusted meteorologists are using their voices to speak out against what some feel is a discrediting phrase in hopes of sparking an industry-wide conversation.
The term “weather girl” is an expression that dates back to the 1950s, when the physical appearance of female weather presenters was often placed above their actual weather knowledge.More.
Reality check: I can’t remember when I last heard the term “weather girl.”
At one time, most of us listened to the weatherman/weather girl on radio or TV because, impatient as we might be, there was no other way of getting the information.
So many people I know just read the figures and bulletins at the weather site for themselves. How much do we need to know beyond stuff like: 10 cm snow, starting approx 8:00 pm?
A recent model car will tell us the outside temperature. If it also offers onboard forecasts/bulletins, they must be stripped of patter for safe driving.
Females who report the weather today can call themselves meteorologists or weather girls as they wish. But the internet, not male chauvinist pigs, made them a frill.
I wish women who are concerned about being seen as scientific would pay more attention to the current assault on science on behalf of end-stage feminism.

Social justice warriors hit engineering. This is what happens when scientists come to believe that consciousness is an illusion and objectivity is sexist. A friend notes that this trend will spread like a skin disease through the ranks of the people marchin’, marchin’ for science. Demanding more and more funding for less and less science. Convinced that the doubts they keep running into are merely prejudice…

Oxford University exam times were increased in a bid to improve the low scores of women, it has emerged.
Students taking maths and computer science examinations in the summer of 2017 were given an extra 15 minutes to complete their papers, after dons ruled that “female candidates might be more likely to be adversely affected by time pressure”. There was no change to the length or difficulty of the questions.
It was the first time such steps had been taken. In previous years, the percentage of male students awarded first class degrees was double that of women and in 2016 the board of examiners suggested that the department make changes to improve women’s grades.
