The Jezebel Guide to Questioning Women’s Femininity


Last week, noted feminist Keith Olbermann implied that the women of Fox News are only hired because they’re attractive.  In response, The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher posted a photo gallery of women who work for MSNBC. When he got to Rachel Maddow, Treacher wrote, “Whoops, how did that one get in there? Sorry, man. I [...]

Feminist Diversity Cop Wants More “Colored Women” in Vanity Fair


Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue hit newsstands this week, and the full color glossy has  taken a decidedly monochromatic approach to highlighting Tinseltown’s up-and-comers. Naturally, the preponderance of slender, white women gracing the Vanity Fair cover is a big deal in the feminist blogosphere.
Fair enough. The Vanity Fair cover does resemble the MSNBC lineup.

But it’s [...]

Slate Magazine Reintegrates Womenfolk


Last May, the ladies of Slate magazine banished themselves to the virtual menstrual lodge known as Double X.  Their goal with the left-leaning feminist spin-off was to “set the agenda for what women are thinking and talking about,” presumably without gumming up Slate with too many girl cooties.
As it turns out, launching a national conversation [...]

Lord of the Rings Commentary by Howard Zinn & Noam Chomsky


If we were living in Middle Earth what would Zinn and Chomsky’s political commentary sound like?
McSweeney’s presents the unused DVD commentary recorded by Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky for The Fellowship of the Ring (platinum series extended edition, natch):
Chomsky: A terrible thing the Orcs do here, isn’t it? They destroy nature. But again, what have [...]

Introducing The Naomi Wolf Award


For too long, extraordinary feats of feminist moral blindness have gone unrecognized.  But now, those dark days are finally over.
Today, I am pleased to introduce The Naomi Wolf Award, affectionately known as The Howler.
The award bears the name of author Naomi Wolf, a third wave feminist who provoked a blogospheric kerfuffle last year with [...]

More Right Wing Extremism at Whole Foods


The Führer of Whole Foods John Mackey hates his employees.  And the fat ones? They’re beneath contempt.
Mackey, a noted monster among men, is well known for oppressing Whole Foods workers by paying the full insurance premium for 89% of all team members and offering employee discounts of 20 percent.
Expect beleaguered employees to endure even greater [...]

Polanski’s Wife: It Wasn’t Rape, It Was ’70s Sex


Roman Polanski’s wife wants you to know the truth about her husband.  You’ll find that “truth” printed in thousands of articles, a handful with unfortunate headlines like these:
Roman Polanski’s Wife Talks About Sex Case
Wife Understands Women’s Shock at Polanski Sex Case but Says Today Is Not Permissive 1970s
The phrase “sex case” has been used in [...]

There are facts, and then there are feminist facts.  Here’s an example:
Fact: Scott Brown is a white male who drives a pickup truck and won the Massachusetts special election.
Feminist fact: Scott Brown won the Massachusetts special election because he’s a white male who drives a pickup truck.

Are We Becoming a Nation of “Big Babies”?


The Italians have a slang term for adult children who refuse to leave the nest: bamboccioni, roughly translated as “stay-at-home big babies.”
So widespread is this culture of perpetual adolescence and stunted independence that an Italian court recently ordered a man to pay a monthly allowance to his 32-year-old daughter. 
In the Bergamo case, 60-year-old Mr [...]

A Feminist Girl Crush on S.E. Cupp?


What could possibly make conservative commentator S.E. Cupp palatable to the feminist Left? After all, the feminist playbook is pretty clear: women who appear on Fox News are gender traitors. End of story.
And yet, sandwiched between a primer on the festive art of “vajazzling” and an ode to “populist hero” Scott Ritter, Salon’s Broadsheet blog [...]
