Rape Culture Offends Men Too!

Rape culture isn’t just offensive to women; it’s offensive to men. The Merriam-Webster definition of “Rape” is “to force (someone) to have sex with you by using violence or the threat of violence.” Rape, by its very nature, is an act of aggression; it is an act in which one party aggressively steals power from another by sexual means. The victim of such an act of violence is never at fault, given the circumstances of the crime. It is the perpetrator who initiates the action, or without permission, Read more […]

If You Like Hollywood Morality, the Democratic Party Is the Place for You

If you want to know if just about anything is good or bad, a shortcut method is to look at who supports that thing, whatever it may be. If a bunch of little kids like a movie of which you know only the title but not the plot, you can safely assume it’s a kid’s movie. If you don’t like kid’s movies, then you know you won’t like this movie even though you know nothing about it other than that kids like it. We all do it, don’t we? Making quick judgments like that? Here’s a better example: Read more […]

Boobsman Outrages Hypocritical Feminists

I hate feminists just as much as the next normal person, but this guy’s a pervert (warning: immodest video, see below). His actions amount to getting his rocks off while using someone else’s body without her permission. He’s a creep, through and through. (Is it wrong that I picture him as Japanese? This is totally something a guy from Tokyo would do.) This guy goes around in some Eastern European country dressed as “Boobsman,” who is a sort of human-mammogram superhero he invented. He uses it Read more […]

Society’s Lapse In Public Etiquette

I don’t like how comfortable we have become with public crassness. At my bookstore the other day, a second-hand place, a young lady walks in, perhaps age 20, lightly freckled, the left side of her head shaved down to a buzz and the right side abruptly cascading her reddish blonde hair past her shoulders to be loosely braided together just at the bottom. She asks if we have any copies of The Shack, that work of Christian-based fiction in which God, for reasons I can’t figure, is portrayed as Read more […]

The FDA Is Paralyzed About Antibiotics And Conservatism Will Resurge

There were a bunch of big headlines yesterday alleging that the FDA was “doing something” about the impending antibiotics crisis. As Beth Hoffman observes at Forbes, the new “guidelines” probably won’t change much about how farms use antibiotics. But sadly, the new FDA “rules” announced Wednesday regarding antibiotic use on farm are a bit of a bait and switch. While the recommendations may “restrict antibiotic use” there is not much hope they will actually limit the quantity of Read more […]

Thank Obamacare For One-Night Stands!

“OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers. I got insurance.” – Obamacare ad aimed at young women Aside from the obnoxious OMG aimed at young people, this commercial, which features a woman standing closely in front of a man she’s apparently never seen before, face alight with possibilities, is staggeringly salacious. There are seemingly infinite problems with Read more […]

In Defense Of The IRS: Why Single Them Out?

A good friend of mine repeated his desire that Congress abolish the IRS. The latest scandal, reported by the Associated Press, runs under the headline, “IG: IRS credit cards used for wine, pornography.” “investigators found that one IRS employee spent $2,655 on diet pills, romance novels, steaks, a smartphone and baby-related items, including bottles, games and clothes. The case was referred to the IG’s office that investigates employee misconduct, the report said. Among other “improper” purchases Read more […]

Planned Parenthood NYC Turf War: Are Promiscuous Teens Helped By Baby Scare Tactics?

Like a war between crime families, Planned Parenthood of New York City has launched an attack on the New York City Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services because of their teen pregnancy prevention campaign. Planned Parenthood’s motives aren’t hard to discern from the CNN story: “The city’s money would be better spent helping teens access health care, birth control, and high-quality sexual and reproductive health education, not on an ad campaign intended to create shock Read more […]

Tax-Funded University Hires Pornographic Author As Professor

Socrates said this: “A system of morality which is based on relative emotional values is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.” Everyone reading articles on this website is on the same page, for the most part; so I’m pretty much preaching to the choir. But that quote from Socrates, made so many years ago; thousands of years, is just as relevant today. Morality without an Independent standard is ambiguous. Think about that while reading Read more […]

Rap Culture Breeds Degenerates

I was watching Maury the other day, that talk show in which Maury Povich invites onto his stage a slew of freaks and lowlifes, hoping to help their personal lives in some way. The topic at the bottom of the screen to remind the viewers just what sort of juiciness we were dealing with was something along the lines of, “Help! I’m 18 and my boyfriend abuses me!” There were three young women sitting in the chairs onstage, two of them white and one black, and they each told their story about their Read more […]
