Rape Accusations, Leftists, Blurred Lines, and poor Brett Kavanaugh

Once Orwellian Leftists got their hands on it, “rape” as traditionally understood became a malleable concept to be used to destroy political enemies.

Toxic masculinity, Progressive hypocrites and victims, and real men *UPDATED*

The past two months have proven that toxic masculinity is the Progressives’ purview, while real American men still get the job done no matter the risk. In the late 1960s, the appropriate term of art for men who hadn’t seen the light was “male chauvinist pig.” Feminists applied this moniker to [Read More]

Campus Rape Facts: Who Yah Gonna Believe?

By: Mike McDaniel    The statistics are unquestionable–at least to the social justice warriors inhabiting American colleges: something between 20 and 25 percent of women will be raped during their four (or more) years of college.

George Faught: When celebrating life is hate speech

Oklahoma state representative George Faught believes each human life is precious, an idea that sees the Left castigating him as “dumb” and “vile.” The Lefties on my Facebook page have been reduced to stuttering incoherence by a statement from Oklahoma State Representative George Faught about pregnancies resulting from rape or [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 3/23/17 — If it’s not one sociopath in the news it’s another

Today’s news could be called Sociopath News, thanks to scheming politicians and bureaucrats, scary athletes, sex-crazed illegal aliens, and more. Officially, there’s no such thing as a “sociopath.” Sociopath is just lay person shorthand for someone with an antisocial personality disorder. So that we’re all on the same page here [Read More]

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” — it’s about romantic seduction, not rape

The SJW’s have finally gotten around to turning their evil, gimlet eye on Frank Loesser’s delightful Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which they are now characterizing as a date rape song.

Stanford “rape victim” should not be a Glamour “Woman Of The Year”

I’m still peeved that Glamour Magazine named Brock Turner’s “rape victim” a Woman Of The Year, which set feminism back at least a hundred years by infantilizing women and insisting that the power in all situations rests solely with men. Thus, Glamour has reinforced the modern “feminist” notion that “Being a [Read More]
