WTF Is Even Happening

On Sunday Donald Trump denied ever sexually assaulting women. As he did so, numerous women across the country yelled "liar!" at the screen. These women have now begun coming forward publicly, telling their stories of being groped and unwillingly kissed by Donald Trump. One woman told of being groped while sitting next to Trump on an airplane. As she explained to the New York Times, she subsequently fled the seat and found somewhere else to sit for the remainder of the flight. Here is how Newt Gi … [Read more...]

Will Marriage Equality End Parental Rights? Part 2

Last spring I dissected an article by Melissa Moschella, a philosophy professor at Catholic University of America. Moschella contended that the Obergefell decision was a threat to parents' rights. In the piece I looked at, she asked to whom children belong. Moschella argued that Obergefell suggests that children belong to the state, rather than to the parents. I pointed out that there have long been a variety of family forms and that the state by necessity must decide whose guardianship of a … [Read more...]

We Definitely Don’t Believe Women

Have you seen this article about the women accusing Trump of mistreatment? Have a look at this bit about Trump's habit of kissing women without their consent: Taggart, the 21-year-old Miss Utah, was startled by how forward he was with young contestants like her in 1997, his first year as the owner of Miss USA, a branch of the beauty pageant organization.

That’s the big difference between Abraham Lincoln and you. That’s a big, big difference. We’re talking about some difference." Trump has repeatedly accused Hillary of being dishonest over the coarse of his campaign (typo and pun intended). And yet, today, he brazenly sent off this tweet:Text: Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (eve … [Read more...]

What Trump’s Donate Page Says about His Silver Spoon

Trump may love dinging Hillary for her big donors, but he appears to have some pretty wild ideas about how much his supporters can afford to donate to his campaign---ideas that suggest he's completely out of touch with the realities of the average American. Check out the difference between Hillary Clinton's donate screen and Donald Trump's donate screen:Can you spot the difference? And no, I don't mean the fact that Donald's page shows him in front of a crowd of cheering sycophants. … [Read more...]

What Would Become of Our Husbands and Sons Under a Trump Presidency?

When confronted with a 2005 tape of Trump bragging about committing sexual assault, Mitt Romney declared that "such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters." I am tired of talking about wives and daughters. We need to start talking about husbands and sons. Many people have responded to Trump's comments by claiming that this is how all men talk about women in private. Trump himself said it was standard locker room talk. Who are these husbands and sons, who talk about women as though they … [Read more...]
