GOP Pol: If Women Can Show Nipples, I Can Grab Them

Female-Symbol

In New Hampshire, it's legal for women to go topless, but a bunch of Republicans want to change that. They've proposed a bill to ban the showing of female nipples, and only female nipples, in public. When a female legislator objected to this, two of her colleagues decided to launch a predictably sexist attack on her, starting with Republican Rep. Josh Moore: … [Read more...]

Prager Calls Peterson ‘One of My Heroes’

JesseLeePeterson

Dennis Prager, who actually used to be mildly interesting every once in a while, did an interview with the thoroughly unhinged Jesse Lee Peterson to help him promote his new book and said that he was "one of my heroes, and I mean that." If a guy who thinks women should not be allowed to vote is one of your heroes, you need to find better heroes. … [Read more...]

Tantaros’ Sexist Double Standard on Trump and Clinton

TrumpBlowingKiss

If you want an answer to the question of whether women can be sexist against women, I give you Fox News host Andrea Tantaros. Responding to Donald Trump's childish riff on Hillary Clinton going to the bathroom during a televised debate, she shows a completely different standard toward Trump than she does to Clinton, claiming that her "whining" makes her look weak. … [Read more...]

A Potentially Huge Court Ruling on Gender and Sexual Orientation

S

There's a very interesting lawsuit going on in California, where a lesbian couple were apparently discriminated against by Pepperdine University. What makes the case interesting is that the plaintiffs are arguing that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation IS gender-based discrimination and is thus already forbidden by federal law. And the judge in the case agreed: … [Read more...]

Mohler: It’s All About Contraception

BirthControlPills

Southern Baptist Convention bigwig Albert Mohler provides yet more support for my position that the anti-gay, anti-abortion Christian right's real target is birth control. In his latest book, We Cannot be Silent, he argues that virtually everything wrong with America, all of which comes back to other people having sex in ways they disapprove of, is a result of contraception. … [Read more...]

Christian Homeless Shelter Bans Women to Prevent Sex

Female-Symbol

A Christian-run homeless shelter in Kentucky claims to have a problem with the people staying at the shelter having sex with one another, so the solution, obviously, is to simply ban women from being there. So instead of being screwed by another homeless person, they can get screwed by the "Christians" who run the place when they're forced back on the streets. … [Read more...]

Dominant, Manly Man ‘Cuckolded’ by New Star Wars Movie

David Futrelle must alternate between wanting to puke ten times a day and breaking out in fits of laughter as he trolls the misogynist-o-sphere looking for material (much like I do with the right wing fever swamps). But this post he found from a "dominant sadist" on FetLife about the new Star Wars movie had to be in the fits of laughter category. This is so idiotic that you can't help but laugh. … [Read more...]

Alveda King’s Latest Totally Illogical Argument

https://goo.gl/W3LNpj

Alveda King, the none-too-bright niece of Martin Luther King who has been using his name to give herself unearned credibility even while being against nearly everything he stood for, has a difficult time constructing logical arguments. She continually tries to ban every bad thing that happens on the legality of abortion, even if she has to make terrible arguments like this: … [Read more...]

How Much Do Ultra-Orthodox Jews Hate Women? This Much.

Female-Symbol

The ultra-Orthodox Haredi sect has caused all kinds of problems in Israel, and in the United States as well to a lesser degree. They're the ones who go around assaulting women who don't show enough modesty, attack people at pride parades and bomb police stations. They're the Jewish version of the Taliban. So how much do they truly hate women? So much that they don't even want to see them. … [Read more...]

Scott Adams: If You Don’t Have Sex With Me, I’ll Kill You

Female-Symbol

Scott Adams, the world-class douchebag who writes the Dilbert comic strip, has a post on his blog about patriarchal vs matriarchal societies. He seems, rather bizarrely, to consider America a matriarchal society. Why? Because he feels like he should have to pick up the check at dinner. And because women get to decide whether he gets to have sex with them or not. I'm not exaggerating. He actually says this. … [Read more...]

What the MRAs Think About the Paris Attacks

As he does so often, David Futrelle does a terrific job of documenting the bizarre ways that men's rights activists think about virtually everything. It's of little surprises that MRAs tend to not only be misogynistic but racist as well, as so many of them have demonstrated in their response to the horrific attacks in Paris. Some of the choicer comments left on MRA websites: … [Read more...]

SCOTUS Grants Cert in Texas Abortion Restriction Case

https://goo.gl/W3LNpj

As expected, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of one of the many cases in the federal courts challenging Targeted Restriction of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws. The cert they granted is a challenge to a law passed in Texas that, if it is allowed to stand, would make abortion far more difficult for women to get in that state, especially in rural areas. … [Read more...]
