I’ve seen people writing and tweeting about #GamerGate.

I have no idea what that is, still.

Looks like it has something to do with Gamers and Liberal Feminists (image below of Christina Hoff Sommers, who has confronted liberal feminists herself):

I’ve written previously about California’s new “Yes Means Yes” law, which codifies a strict definition of “affirmative consent” as it applies to students on college campuses. It’s a terrible bill, but some liberals are touting its absolute failure to address any real problems as its greatest achievement.

Somehow, this seemed inevitable.

Just-resigned Secret Service Director Julia Pierson allegedly is the victim of male privilege, and was treated differently than a man in a similar position would be treated.

This video clip — just before the resignation — led to charges of sexism:

Those charges increased after the resignation.

There are seemingly endless programs and advocates to increase the participation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) as a means of addressing the gender imbalance, which is particularly dramatic at the graduate and doctoral levels.

The National Science Foundation has special grant programs.  The White House emphasizes the issue....

Cornell Rape Culture Protest Mattress

A few weeks ago, we covered the story of Columbia studentEmma Sulkowicz, who alleged she was raped by another student.

Rather than pursue the matter all the way through the legal system (she dropped her case), Sulkowicz took her case to the University tribunal. Her alleged rapist was not found guilty by the...

There’s nothing more offensive to me than an article that leaps off the cliff in the first sentence by dropping the “as a woman, I…” bomb.

It doesn’t matter how the sentence ends; what matters is that the author, whoever she may be, believes that on some level her gender proves her...

Last March we covered how California Seeks to Redefine Consensual Campus Sex as Rape, and we asked the question: “How does classifying most consensual sex as rape help rape victims?”

It doesn’t, of course. The California affirmative consent legislation was not about preventing rapes or other sexual assaults, which already are crimes,...

If you went to college, you probably know someone who became the victim of sexual assault after a night out with friends.

Now a group of engineering students at North Carolina State University are developing a tool that can help young women avoid becoming victims of sexual assault.

Some privileges are permissible topics for discussion on campus and in the media.

For example, White Privilege is the obsession of some faculty and students.

George Will pointed out that there is another privilege on campuses — false or contrived claims of victim status.  Will did not argue that real victims, be it of...

Columbia University has been the focus of heated arguments over the university’s handling of sexual assault complaints.

In recent days, the names of alleged “rapists” have been scrawled on bathroom walls and in flyers, as reported at The Columbia Spectator, The NY Daily News, and The Columbia Lion, and Jezebel, which provided this...

Democrats are going all in on the War on Women campaign theme once again, focused this time not on free contraception but on the claim that women make only 77% percent of what men make for comparable work.

It is the centerpiece of the 2014 electoral campaign.
