Cornell campus aerial view towards Cayuga Lake

Last week we featured Mark Steyn’s column about forced intellectual conformity on campus:

Universities are no longer institutions of inquiry but ‘safe spaces’ where delicate flowers of diversity of race, sex, orientation, ‘gender fluidity’ and everything else except diversity of thought have to be protected from exposure to any unsafe ideas….

I’ve been thinking about what to say regarding the decision of Brandeis University to withdraw an invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali for an Honorary Degree.

It comes on the heels of attempts to keep The Honor Diaries off campus, The silence of Western feminists is deafening.

A narrative is emerging that the entire Brendan Eich evisceration campaign was a public relations stunt by OKCupid.   That narrative is emerging from the left, based on facts uncovered by the right.

Yeah, me too.

But I don’t think that’s what the Ban Bossy campaign is about.

The #BanBossy movement pretends to protect little girls from the humiliation of being called “bossy,” and thereby will empower a generation of strong, powerful female leaders (so long as you don’t call them bossy, because that would...

How does classifying most consensual sex as rape help rape victims?

As a lawyer who has handled rape and sexual harassment cases, I can’t imagine how. But this radical result is what some want to happen in California.

In endorsing a bill in the California legislature that would require “affirmative consent” before sex...

Microaggression.

Like the .gif of Obama kicking open a door in a parody by the Jay Leno show, that forced a student leader at McGill University in Canada to apologize.

Here’s an explanation by a professor at Columbia University Teachers College of what microaggression is:

The fake scenario of Obama kicking open a door after a press conference went viral after Jay Leno showed it on the Tonight Show.
