The Naomi Wolf Award Goes to … Joan Scott, Misogynist


Joan Wallach Scott is an influential Princeton University historian whose poisonous brand of academic feminism sanctions Islamic misogyny in the name of cultural relativism. Her 2006 polemic, The Politics of the Veil, was an intellectually lazy attempt to shut down opponents of public veiling in France with broad accusations of racism, imperialism, and paranoia.

Could Bristol Palin’s New PSA Unintentionally Encourage Abortion?


On the campaign trail, Barack Obama famously told a Pennsylvania audience that if his daughters had sex as teenagers, he wouldn’t want them “punished with a baby.”

Women Win Elections Without Special Treatment

In 2007, 100 copies of Wolf’s book, The End of America, were donated to Code Pink for distribution to United States senators. In 2008, she announced that the fascist Bush administration was intercepting [...]

The Rape of Lady Liberty


Quick, somebody fetch the smelling salts! Poor dears in the feminist blogosphere are suffering from the vapors after unexpected exposure to something no progressive should ever have to endure: a conservative political cartoon.

Slate: Jihadists with Breast Implant Bombs are Blowing Up Sexual Taboos


Al-Qaeda operatives have added a new weapon to their terrorist arsenal: killer cleavage.
Female suicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered.
