The World’s Smallest Violin

Men’s rights are human rights. Men have never been a disenfranchised or marginalized group due to sex and/or gender. And they shouldn’t be. Ever. Period. Now, let’s make women’s rights part of human rights. As soon as that’s accomplished, we can truly say feminism was a great historical movement from our post-feminist future. And we’ll […]

Do MRAs support female genital mutilation?

We’ve seen them on various forums and social media comparing and contrasting FGM with the practice of medical circumcision, which most of the educated western world now regards as mutilation. In fact, male infant circumcision was one of the first topics I brought up to my husband. If I have a son, no one is […]

Monsters Committed Cologne Assaults/Rapes

A floating dead baby in the water… the world sobs. I, as well as every other decent human being on this planet, was disgusted and saddened by the death of the Syrian boy who washed ashore a Turkish beach. The West opened its arms, especially Germany.

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 […]

Yes, We Need Feminism

Any fool – male or female – who claims feminism is no longer needed deserves to live in Alabama. Our state legislatures and governor just defunded Planned Parenthood, which is responsible for health check-ups, birth control, and emergency health concerns such as UTIs. The right-wing attacks on Planned Parenthood isn’t about the 3% of abortions […]
