GUEST POST: You are not a feminist

Stop coopting the term “feminist.” If you privilege trans concerns over woman-born-women’s concerns, you are not a feminist. If you believe that the question of “what does it mean to be a woman?” has been settled, and that the only legitimate answer is that a woman is anyone who declares that identity, you are not […]

Being Feminist Means Telling Lesbians To Have Sex With Men

“Feminist” Facebook page with 25,000 likes posts homophobic article discussing Lesbian sexuality and how Lesbians need to learn to appreciate penis so Lesbians and “people with penises” can have “fun” together.

That Awkward Moment

One of the charges Transgender Warriors and their Signal-Boosting Liberal Allies regularly lodge against Radical Feminists is that Radical Feminists are “biological determinists” for knowing that human biology exists.

Toxic Sludge is Good for You

The most important book I have read about use of media and public relations to manipulate public opinion is Toxic Sludge Is Good for You.  If you are not familiar with this book, trust me, it is worth the read.  Essentially, the book details how powerful interests manipulate the media to get you to smoke […]

Here, Let Us Fix That For You


If you repeat a lie often enough, does it become true?

Americans gave up the idea-or tried to, or pretended to-that there are certain characteristics and qualities that are essentially black and essentially white a long time ago.
