Angie the Abortion Exhibitionist


When blogger Penelope Trunk tweeted her miscarriage last year, a writer at Double X urged women to take the idea even further in a piece called Go Ahead, Tweet Your Abortion.  And now someone has done just that.
Shortly after Angie Jackson discovered she was pregnant, she announced her plans to broadcast the grisly details of [...]

Feminism: The Masquerade


You’ve got a long way to go, baby. And don’t you forget it.
This oasis of freedom and equality we call the United States? It’s all a mirage, says leftist feminist Jessica Valenti.  In fact, “We’re suffering under the mass delusion that women in America have achieved equality.”

Will the ACORN Schools Be Rebranded Too?


The New York chapter of mighty, mighty ACORN is now mighty, mighty NY Communities for Change.  It doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it?

Kevin Smith’s Big Fat Sense of Entitlement


Filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma) was thrown off a Southwest Airlines plane Saturday night when the flight crew determined he posed a “safety risk” due to his size.  The overweight celeb immediately took to Twitter to air his grievances.  Here’s his multi-tweet tantrum (organized into paragraphs for semi-coherence):

Get ‘Em While They’re Young: Radical Feminism for 4th Graders


In 2009, Ileana Jiménez asked her class of high school juniors and seniors to write letters to President Obama about “the ways in which feminism might be addressed in the curriculum.”  Earlier this week she shared one letter on her blog, Feminist Teacher.
It is understandable that teachers cannot be expected to cram decades of struggles [...]

Sports Editor Seeks Reparations … For Planned Parenthood


Incensed by the completely innocuous Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial, sports editor Dave Zirin blogged his fury at The Nation yesterday. He admits the ad was “about as vanilla as an Andy Williams Christmas Special.”  But it’s not the actual content of the ad that angers Zirin.
It’s the pesky free speech.
He’s infuriated that CBS [...]
