Gendered restroom spaces have endured intense public scrutiny lately, but usually from the “stop with your fascist gender labels and let me pick my preferred pronoun!” crowd.

So this piece in TIME is slightly outside of the “ban public restroom gender divisions” norm.

Working in the political sphere has provided a sort of quasi-emotional inoculation. For the most part, I’m able to read and write about all kind of stories, tragedies, atrocities, and hypocrisies without having much more reaction than, “Seriously? You’ve got to be kidding me!” before moving on the next le sigh-worthy...

The fight to emasculate men rages on amongst our “feminist” friends. Lisa Bonos’ editorial How to Find a Feminist Boyfriend is simply the latest example.

For all the talk of equality and partnership, there’s not one single mention of equality or partnership. True to form, the “feminist” definition of the aforementioned virtues...

Adorably hilarious, this father-daughter conversation fantastically illustrates how behavior is learned.

Modern “feminism” scoffs at the “sexual objectification” of Princess Leia, all the while, drooling over shirtless pictures of Ryan Gosling (because somehow that’s different).

Flipping through a Star Wars book, this little girl found Princess Leia’s prison garb to be quite fabulous...

First, I’m a sucker for animal videos, particularly, those involving elephants. This happens to be one of my favorites as of recent.

Secondly, it’s New Year’s Eve Eve, so if ever there was an appropriate time to share an elephant video with you, now would be it.
