As a lifelong feminist, and firmly on the political Left, I am appalled at so-called progressives that capitulate to Islamist men, and make an exception for Islam as a religion – when being (rightly) critical of Judaism and Catholicism. What is behind this hypocrisy? From where I am standing it is simple: the fear of being labelled ‘Islamophobic’.
In a trailer for the new Netflix documentary based on the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, feminist Gloria Steinem refers to abortion as a “basis of democracy.”
Such a radical view balkanizes and scapegoats men while applauding transgender behavior.
University of Kansas Hosts ‘Feminist Parenting Group’ to Explore ‘Strategies for Raising Intersectional Feminist Children’
This semester, the University of Kansas will be hosting a “feminist parenting group.” The group will explore “strategies for raising intersectional feminist children” and “empower parents and caregivers to raise children who challenge gender stereotypes and kyriarchy.”
“It’s better that 99 guilty men go free than 1 innocent man goes to jail.” That used to be liberal dogma and was used to justify granting ever more rights to the accused.
But that standard was thrown out the window on many college campuses when it came to sexual assault cases. Obama-era rules tipped the scales of justice heavily in favor of victims – whether they were truly victims or not.
If you wish to understand what feminism actually is, and how it affects daily life, I recommend Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism by Daphne Patai. First published in 1998, Heterophobia examines how claims of “harassment” are weaponized to destroy the careers and reputations of men and,in chapters 6 and 7, provides an exegesis of the feminist theory that justifies this deliberate destruction.
For academic feminists, male and female biology is either interchangeable or immutable, depending on what complaint they need to lodge.
A foundational tenet of academic feminism holds that alleged differences between males and females are socially constructed. This credo usually maximizes the opportunities for charging sexism, yet it will be discarded in an instant if acknowledging the innate biological and psychological differences between men and women yields an additional trove of feminist complaint. The current issue of the Yale Alumni Magazine shows how the game is played.
The call for easily available divorce to counter the ‘oppression of marriage’ spawned social and economic effects that have fallen disproportionately on the poor and less educated. Fatherless households, to cite but one malady, are far more likely to produce rapists and murderers
‘Male Feminist’ Professor Michael Kimmel Accused of Sexual Harassment
Whoever said that feminists weren’t supply siders? Feminists and their fellow travelers are demanding that tampons be tax-free.
You have to almost feel sorry for feminists. They’ve been pushed aside by more virtuous groups like illegal aliens and men disguised as women. These new identity group darlings have sucked all the oxygen out of the liberal media, forcing feminists to make more and more outlandish claims to get attention…
Follow this logic:
She wore a bikini expecting to be outraged for being called fat and ugly…
And when men cat-called her for being sexy instead of calling her fat and ugly, she was outraged…

On the website of the extremist feminist group WOMAD ― its name a portmanteau of woman and nomad ― a sick competition is underway.
Some members are locked in a game of chicken bragging of their brutality and cruelty by posting messages along with related images showing what they did to men or male creatures.
Professor Cara Daggett, who teaches classes on politics and global security at Virginia Tech, is warning that fossil fuels are contributing to a warped sense of “masculine identity” and “authoritarianism” among men.
