Right now, lurking in your radio, is something so…so hideous…so backward….that it threatens to destroy gender equality as we know it.

We’ve known for a long time that some feminists have a problem with women who choose to become housewives, and an even bigger problem with women who embrace their feminine...

Feminists found a new target for their incessant outrage — Nike’s new spring clothing line.

Nike’s latest fashion endeavor looks runway ready, and probably not meant for kickboxing, spinning, or anything else athletic. But then most runway fare isn’t designed for anything but the runway. Even the promo photos look like the glossy...

Feminists are marching against Andrew Jackson.

(Well, at least against his face.)

A group called “Women on 20’s” is trying to rally online support behind an effort to change the face of the $20 bill to that of a woman who “the people” see as instrumental in the fight for...

You gotta love the Oscars. It’s one of the best nights to watch Hollywood revel in its self-importance. As customary, at least one award recipient had to wax poetic about something political.

Winning Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood, Patricia Arquette took the opportunity to make a pitch for...

While American “feminists” prattle on about “Manterruptions” and other trivial nonsense, lawmakers in East Java (the island that houses Indonesia’s capitol, Jakarta) are considering imposing virginity tests on school girls.

Jember’s City Council wants to institute virginity tests as a prerequisite for high school graduation. Test would be administered only...

Manterruptions.

If not for TIME magazine, I’d have gone along my merry way, ignorant to the fact that manterruptions exist. No, it’s not a fun, colloquial expression used by youngsters these days. The author is quite serious about the trials and tribulations forged by manterruptions.

What’s a manterruption, you ask? According...

When San Diego’s talk station KOGO AM600 announced they were going to chat about obnoxious Super Bowl ads, they asked listeners to call in with the ones they wanted to discuss.

Instead, I sent a producer I knew my piece, I am apologizing #LikeAGirl for Super Bowl Ads’ #WarOnMen. As a result,...

Her alleged rapist is speaking out.

Sulkowicz made national headlines with her harrowing tale of a consensual sexual encounter turned rape. After her alleged rapist was cleared by Columbia’s internal...

While Professor Jacobson was surfing the Twitter stream during the Super Bowl, I was savoring the free market creativity of American advertisers.

The runaway favorite commercials feature cute puppies and horses. One particular ad, however, brought out an entirely different animal in me: The Mama Grizzly.

Dove's #RealStrength pro-Dad Super Bowl ad will make you cry feminism masculinity

I love, love, love when companies and brands go pro-Dad. Last year, Cheerios released a “How to Dad” series of ads that were adorable and quite perfect in their ability to silence the ridiculous “dumb Dad” meme.

This year, one company has upped the ante on featuring fatherhood in its marketing....

2015: the year feminism won all the things… or at least an entire award show.

Nestled in between articles like, “The Thong is Dead!” and “17 Butts From ‘Dating Naked,'” the astute publication Cosmopolitan recounted the Golden Globe award show in an intellectually stimulating article entitled, “Who Won the Golden Globes? Women....

The Everyday Sexism of Women Waiting in Public Toilet Lines Women waiting in line to use public toilets is... sexist Right to pee

Gendered restroom spaces have endured intense public scrutiny lately, but usually from the “stop with your fascist gender labels and let me pick my preferred pronoun!” crowd.

So this piece in TIME is slightly outside of the “ban public restroom gender divisions” norm.

How to find a feminist boyfriend

The fight to emasculate men rages on amongst our “feminist” friends. Lisa Bonos’ editorial How to Find a Feminist Boyfriend is simply the latest example.

For all the talk of equality and partnership, there’s not one single mention of equality or partnership. True to form, the “feminist” definition of the aforementioned virtues...
