Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

In the age of the internet, that saying should be updated to “three times around the world”, as is evidenced by the story behind the resignation of a British scientist.

Up until Wednesday night, I figured the push to have a woman’s mug gracing American currency was nothing more than internet fun. Apparently, this is a thing that’s actually happening.

Late Wednesday evening, Benny Johnson and Justin Green of IJ Review reported the new $10 could be available...

It seems like only yesterday we were reporting on Dr. Matt Taylor, the brilliant British scientist who was instrumental in landing a probe on a comet hundreds of millions of miles away, who became the target of social media wrath.

His crime: Wearing a shirt that was deemed “anti-woman” by hyper-feminists.

feminists freak out over Jurassic World traditional gender roles

Last month we discussed feminist angst over summer blockbuster, Jurassic World. Evidently, the film’s traditional gender roles were another tool of the patriarchy to keep women in the kitchen… or something.

It should be noted that in an age where gender roles are a matter of choice, if one chooses to go...

Columbia Student Carrying Mattress Emma Sulkowicz

You probably remember Emma Sulkowicz, who carried her mattress around Columbia University to protest her alleged rapists presence on campus. Sulkowicz’s “Carry the Weight” project was an act of “performance art” (her term, not ours) that resulted in college credit.

Her alleged rapist, Paul Nungesser, was later cleared by Columbia and...

As the American press reports breathlessly on the #WarOnWomen in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Run Version 2.0, two of Professor Jacobson’s colleagues are battling to defend research showing that there may actually be a campus #WarOnMen.

A favorite assertion of campus-level feminist activists is that women in the sciences have a...

Leave it to feminists to be incensed over a dinosaur movie.

“Jurassic World” hits theaters June 12. Presumably a redux of “Jurassic Park,” but this time with one dude taking out dinosaurs instead of a motley crew of paleontologists, it’s a film I can’t wait to see on the silver screen....

Columbia Student Carrying Mattress Emma Sulkowicz

We have covered the case of Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia University student who vowed to carry her mattress around campus in protest of her alleged rapist who remained on campus. That alleged rapist was cleared by the University, and now is suing to clear his name.

I love the Equal Pay debate. It’s one of the simplest tests of political acumen.

Caleb Bonham decided to chat it up with a few Hillary supporters who love Mrs. Clinton because she’s, “doing a great job fighting for what should have happened a long time ago.” “What should’ve happened a...

Pj media boyhood under attack war on men bill whittle stephen green war on women

Forget the fictitious but politically expedient ‘War on Women,’ masculinity is under attack. Men are maligned for not being more feminine in quality and character, and little boys are expected to forsake their natural curiosity, fervor, and active nature so as not to offend anyone with their rambunctiousness.

Israel Air Force Mothers Day Photo Pilot Breastfeeding

If there is one thing Israel-haters hate more than anything, it’s being reminded of how well women are treated in Israel compared to the surrounding Arab countries.

So when the Israel Airforce posted a Mother’s Day greeting of a female IAF pilot breastfeeding her child, it was major league trolling (h/t

As I was preparing for my Mother’s Day vacation getaway, this tweet came across my screen:

We’ve written quite a bit about Trigger Warnings since before it became fashionable:

The fragile college student mind is getting more fragile by the day.

As if the normal run of political correctness were not enough, we now have “Trigger Warnings” — the notion that students need to be warned that the material they...
