Relativists Love-Hate Sex-Violence and Embattled Porn Star James Deen

You know things are bad when one of the most logically consistent voices coming from the left is an alleged serial rapist and pornographer. James Deen, who has starred in over 2,000 pornographic films, recently responded to allegations that he had raped a growing list of ex-girlfriends and co-stars. I’m not writing about this story because it is salacious or sensational. It certainly is those things, but I think the compelling and revealing aspect of both this story and Deen’s response to Read more […]

Rolling Stone to be Sued By Fraternity Over Debunked Gang Rape Article

Just like we live in a racist culture, we also live in a rape culture. Or so everyone loves telling me. The media loves race and rape stories. There’s no getting around that. But Rolling Stone may have allowed a good story to get in the way of the truth. And they might be paying the price for it: A fraternity at the University of Virginia announced Monday that it will “pursue all available legal action” against Rolling Stone, saying a Columbia Journalism School review shows the magazine acted Read more […]

Rape Culture Offends Men Too!

From the University of California system to Yale, schools have been adopting standards to distinguish when consent was given for a Read more […]

“Rape Culture”: Imaginary Enemy

Feminists have invented something they like to call “rape culture.” They claim that rape culture was invented by “the patriarchy,” which, comically, is yet another invention of theirs. It’s all very meta. It’s like an imaginary friend who gives you imaginary presents, and then you go around “showing” people all those presents.

Encouraging Modesty Is Not Exploitation Or Enslavement: Miley Cyrus Did Not Act Human

Writing for Slate, Amanda Marcotte took aim at two columnists in her piece, “Washington Post This Weekend: Teenage Girls Are Asking to Be Raped.” “If you’ve been reading the Washington Post the past few days, you might conclude that sexual abuse is the inevitable result of girls being girls. First, there was an op-ed by Betsy Karasik, in which she defends a 49-year-old male teacher who raped a 14-year-old girl (who later committed suicide) with the classic “grass on the field” justification.
