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 don’t know if Sulkowicz was...

Hillary Clinton Beauty Pageant Caleb Bonham Equal Pay Hillary paid women less

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.

The compulsion to...

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

Behold, Mars: site of future discoveries adventures microaggressions.

Yes, really. Happy Sunday, everyone.

Every once in a while, the social justice warrior set cracks a window and shines light on what’s really bugging them about the world. Racism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, life-phobia—if they can’t find a problem, they’ll use one of these...

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

A worthy question, as I thought progressives would be positively joyful at this point in the “Hope and Change” presidency. However, they seem to be clinging to their bitterness.

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.

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.

But by labeling conservative points of view as “extremist,” “anti-feminist,” and “racist,” feminists are shutting down the dialogue on their college campuses before it even begins.

To the leftist student activists, it...

As Aleister wrote previously, Christina Hoff Summers received an… interesting response when she spoke at Georgetown Thursday night.

Ms. Sommers is the Factual Feminist at the American Enterprise Institute.

In the Oberlin Review radical feminists responded to Sommers’ upcoming speech with an OpEd, “A Love Letter to Themselves.” In this love letter,...

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...
