Shoebat the Lesser: Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote


Theodore Shoebat, son of fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat, joins a remarkably undistinguished list of wingnuts that includes Theodore Beale (Vox Day) and Jesse Lee Peterson in saying that women should not be allowed to vote or be involved in politics at all. And that's just one part of the misogyny in this video, where he lavishes praise on Vladimir Putin as a great Christian leaders and calls Carly Fiorina an ugly wretch. … [Read more...]

New England Journal of Medicine Defends Planned Parenthood

In the wake of a highly coordinated and highly dishonest attack on Planned Parenthood, the New England Journal of Medicine, along with Lancet the most distinguished and prominent medical journals in the world, has issued a strong editorial condemning those attacks and supporting the organization as vital to the health of millions of women. They also defend the use of fetal tissue in medical research. … [Read more...]

We Now Have a Circuit Split on the Secondary Accommodation


Religious non-profits are given an exemption from the contraception mandate, but dozens of them have gone to court to argue that this is not good enough, that even with the exemption it's a violation of their religious liberty. So far, every appeals court that heard such a challenge has rejected it -- until last week, when the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of one such organization. … [Read more...]

Russell Moore Says Christians Should Not Support Trump


Russell Moore, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, has an op-ed column in the New York Times arguing that evangelical Christians should not support Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Why? Well partly because his claims of being a serious Christian and loving the Bible are clearly nonsense, and partly because of his hedonistic lifestyle. And one more reason, which I'll get to later. … [Read more...]

Jesse Lee Peterson Compares Davis to Rosa Parks


The astonishingly stupid and vile Jesse Lee Peterson is the latest person to absurdly compare Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to Rosa Parks, a comparison that goes in exactly the opposite direction. In fact, he says that Rosa Parks would be doing the same thing Kim Davis did if she were alive today and in the same position. Oh, and so would Martin Luther King. I'll get to the central irony after this quote: … [Read more...]

The Men’s Rights Movement in a Nutshell


David Futrelle at We Hunted the Mammoth calls our attention to a video of Paul Elam, Dean Esmay and a bunch of other MRAs having a "family reunion" in which they decided that the best way to prove that they are a real "human rights" movement and not a bunch of crude, middle-aged misogynists who hate women was to record this video of themselves making crude, misogynist statements about Jessica Valenti and Amanda Marcotte. Some of what is on that video: … [Read more...]

Donald Trump, Still a Misogynist Pig


Donald Trump is at it again, letting his sexism flag fly in the breeze. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he insulted fellow Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina's looks, saying he can't believe that America would vote for someone with "that face." Then he lied and said that he was really talking about her "persona," because that's what you do when you repeatedly refer to someone's looks. … [Read more...]

Breaking News: Damon Wayans is Human Excrement


I have a very simple rule when it comes to going to the movies. Okay, I have a lot of rules about movies. But one of them is: Never see a movie starring anyone with the last name Wayans. Keenan Ivory Wayans did some fairly funny stuff decades ago, but the rest of them have produced nothing but crap. And Damon Wayans just revealed himself to be a major league piece of shit with his vile attacks on the "bitches" that Bill Cosby raped: … [Read more...]

Trump: Women Can’t Be Trusted With Secrets


Having already infuriated women everywhere with his blatant misogyny, Donald Trump just keeps on upping the ante and digging the hole deeper. He just gets to talking and stupid shit comes out of his mouth, like in a recent speech when he started attacking Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and ended up saying that women who love their husbands can't be trusted with secrets because they'll tell them all about it. … [Read more...]

Worldnetdaily Columnist Destroys a Straw Feminist


Patrice Lewis is the author of an insipid piece of drivel at the Worldnetdaily entitled "Are Feminists Insane?" It's nothing more than the ritual disembowlment of one of the commonly invoked straw feminists, the Evil Feminist Who Hates Women Who Choose to Be Mothers. Unable to find any actual feminist who believes that, she quotes from an obscure Salon writer who says the opposite, that in at least one sense she actually envies stay-at-home moms. … [Read more...]

Indian Village Council Orders Continual Gang Rapes

This is one of the most horrifying stories I've ever seen. A town council has ordered two young women to undergo repeated gang rapes, among other punishments, because their brother ran off and eloped with a woman from a different caste. The sisters are asking the India Supreme Court to intervene and protect them, but I find it hard to believe that they could actually do so if that is the attitude prevalent in their communities. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump, the Greatest Thing to Ever Happen to Women


After weeks of attention paid to his blatantly sexist attitudes toward women, Donald Trump wants you ladies to know that if he's elected president, he'll be the greatest thing to ever happen to you. Because he cherishes you, whatever the hell that means. He especially cherishes beautiful models half his age. In fact, he collects new ones every 10-15 years. And the money he pays them to go away is the greatest thing to ever happen to them. … [Read more...]
