This goes to show you that you never can predict which posts will gain traction.

My post Cornell gives deer tubal ligations, everything goes wrong, was meant to be a somewhat humorous take on a bizarre sequence of events. Tubal ligations and ovariectamies performed on does were just the half of it.

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.

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.
