Feminism Revisited: The Regressive Left, “Meninist” Creeps & Crappy Feminists

My Twitter buddy, Lalo Dagach, said it best:  There is a need for feminism because there are issues that relate specifically to being a women. A man receiving an online threat isn’t the same as a women receiving a rape threat. Lalo’s right. It is different. There is a specific OB/GYN medical category for women because we face […]

Regressive Left Agenda & Motives

The world sees two extreme reactions to terrorism:  fear-mongering from the conservative sector, and apologists from the liberal. Neither one is a great response, as both are based in fear.

As a Millennial…

I was pleasantly surprised to see a pro-Millennial article in our local paper, The Birmingham News: http://www.al.com/opinion/index.ssf/2015/10/in_defense_of_millennials.html. The only point I would change are the dates. Technically, Millennials start in the late 70s. I feel staunchly Millennial because I graduated from grad school during the Great Recession, and witnessed the Vietnam of my generation as […]
