Perceptive commenter Modem XX writes: I’m just wondering what went on in D.C. today while everyone was distracted by the deaths of Farrah and Michael. Oh, nothing much. Just a love note from the White House that they’re putting together a new Executive Order giving President God the right to indefinitely detain anybody he feels […]

Today was Take Molly To The Vet Day. Before we left for the vet: Farrah Fawcett died! After we got home from the vet: Michael Jackson died! It’s celebrity death day. Fawcett’s passing was sad but not unexpected, since she was ill with cancer. But the Jackson thing is a huge shock. And no, I […]

The truth about the NOW election

I want to talk about the future of NOW, and that’s going to be my next post. But first, it’s time to dispel some of the nonsense about the election: #1: The real issue at the NOW election was that the organization is broke and going nowhere fast. Membership has nose-dived and so has revenue […]

Apparently I’m an anti-choice feminist without even realizing it

The coverage of the NOW election is becoming garbled. Over at Salon, Judy Berman writes: Meanwhile, Viva la Feminista blogger Veronica Arreola, who supported Lyles, says O’Neill (who is pro-choice) owes her election to pro-life feminists. She writes: “The Sarah Palin supporters swung this election…. Whoa, nellie. “Sarah Palin supporters” (if that’s even what they […]

I feel like a Soviet spy here, smuggling in a photograph snapped with a bow-tie camera. See all those grainy people up there whose faces you can’t make out? That’s Leonid Brezhnev Carol Moseley Braun introducing the new officers of NOW: Terry O’Neill (prez), Bonnie Grabenhofer, Erin Matson, and Allendra Letsome. Moseley Braun was a […]

How would you define the fourth wave of feminism?

By · Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 · 140 Comments »

Earlier today, commenter Alison said: I think the women at Feministing are at war with the 4th wave just as much as they are at war with any woman who does not meet their card carrying Democrat standard. Their recent post in which they are defensive in regard to criticism that they do not support […]

Feminists Against Women strike again

Unfuckingbelievable. Those lying twits at Feministing are doing it again: they’re actually repeating the rape kit smear. The bogus story about Sarah Palin and the rape kits was one of the ugliest smears I’ve ever seen in politics. It was orchestrated by the Obama campaign, fueled with conference calls to reporters and stories planted in […]
