Columbia Student Carrying Mattress Emma Sulkowicz

You might remember Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia University student who vowed to carry her mattress around campus in protest of her alleged rapist who remained on campus. Sulkowicz turned what she says was a horrible tragedy into performance art; performance art that will suffice as her senior thesis.

Sulkowicz chose not to...

Trigger Warning

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...

College campuses are meant to be a place where students engage in new perspectives and critical reasoning. Or so they say.

To the leftist student activists, it...

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...

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...

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.
