Death By Hijab. But What’s It Got To Do With Isadora Duncan?


I have gone on record, many times, about how hazardous the Islamic Veil is to women’s health in both medical and psychiatric terms. There are other kinds of health risks involved in adopting Islamically “modest” dress. For example, in England, Muslim nurses are now refusing to leave their arms uncovered below the [...]

Women Win Elections Without Special Treatment


Women are underrepresented in congress.  It’s an indisputable fact.  Although they make up more than half the population in the United States, women hold just 16.8 percent of congressional seats.
But it’s not because women don’t win elections.

It’s a good thing we have post-modern, post-moral professors, or else some might get the crazy notion that looting is a bad thing.

Feminists Mute on Slut TV, Yet We Have Them to Thank For It


Perhaps thank is the wrong word; we have Feminists to blame for the influx of Slut TV. Yet, their silence regarding the same is deafening. Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Rock of Love, The Bad Girls Club, even Mtv’s The Real World, all epitomize the very worst in female degradation and show just how much [...]
