Hot damn Women’s March is confused.

Are we talking about people who can get pregnant, or women?

Trump kept the docs willfully

Sep 20th, 2022 4:30 am | By

Trump can’t claim Honest Mistake.

A onetime White House lawyer under President Donald J. Trump warned him late last year that Mr. Trump could face legal liability if he did not return government materials he had taken with him when he left office, three people familiar with the matter said.

That means Trump can’t claim “Oh I didn’t realize, sorry, my mistake.”

The lawyer, Eric Herschmann, sought to impress upon Mr. Trump the seriousness of the issue and the potential for investigations and legal exposure if he did not return the documents, particularly any classified material, the people said.

The account of the conversation is the latest evidence that Mr. Trump had been informed of the legal perils of

Hmm. Heavily disguised Activist burns lesbian strength poster while gesturing “fuck you.” Somehow I don’t find that particularly persuasive.

Of the girl!!

Aha, a festival for International Day of the Girl.

What is Shona?

Nice, so all this is about empowering girls. Fair play to them.

So much for empowering girls and International Day of the Girl.

Updating to add: There’s another one, because of course there is.

It seems she is a woman, but considers herself too special and interesting to be called a woman.

Real feminists campaign for everyone except women

Sep 19th, 2022 11:37 am | By

Another confused group that claims to be feminist but also likes to omit and erase women.

What a pity they made the mistake of calling themselves Women’s March way back in January 2017. So typical of women not to think such things through.

To respond with a salute

Sep 19th, 2022 9:44 am | By

While men in Brighton are busy calling feminist women fascists, Trump is doing the real thing:

Trump appeared to more fully embrace QAnon on Saturday, playing a song at a political rally in Ohio that prompted attendees to respond with a salute in reference to the cultlike conspiracy theory’s theme song.

While speaking in Youngstown in support of J.D. Vance, whom he has endorsed as Ohio’s Republican nominee for the Senate, Mr. Trump delivered a dark address about the decline of America over music that was all but identical to a song called “Wwg1wga” — an abbreviation for the QAnon slogan, “Where we go one, we go all.”

As Mr. Trump spoke, scores of people in the crowd raised

Men in charge

Purpose-driven

Some people know exactly who the women are and what they’re for.

Ten former members of a Utah-based polygamist sect known as the Kingston Group are pursuing punitive damages against the organization after they say it subjected them to years of unpaid labor, sexual violence and human trafficking.

In a lawsuit filed earlier this month, the sect’s ex-members allege: “It is largely through … illegal marriage practices that the [Kingston Group] is able to unlawfully make girls and their children religious martyrs and traffic them for sexual and labor purposes.”

The lawsuit contains explicit details of how Kingston Group leaders – who also own and operate several businesses and schools in the suburbs of Utah’s capital, Salt Lake City

Guest post: Reality plays the long game

Sep 18th, 2022 4:43 pm | By

Originally a comment by Your Name’s not Bruce? on No they don’t.

The National Organization for Women is defining “woman” as a “gender identity” now. How fucking feminist of them.

This is going to age really well, right? At some point, they are going to be mortified by this.

Compared to the UK, the US and Canada seem to be behind the curve. Over there, the tide appears to be turning; genderists are more on the defensive, what with the Cass report, and all of the court cases that are being decided in favour of GC belief. It’s not as if an ocean is still the same obstacle to information it once was. The legal and legislative regimes on … Read the rest



Now say “women”

Now say “women”

NOW is fully captured, just like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood and the National Women’s Law Center. Nothing for women any more, always people. Women don’t matter any more; nobody campaigns or proselytizes for women any more; women are so much chaff.

They systematically avoid the word, even though it’s IN their NAME. The W in NOW stands for Women, but NOW has become ashamed to use the word.… Read the rest

No they don’t

Meanwhile – the item that prompted me to try to reply to a NOW tweet only to find I’m blocked –

That’s a moronic lie. Men don’t need access to abortion, because men can’t get pregnant. It’s only women who need abortion rights, and no longer have them.… Read the rest

Eyes off the prize

I wasn’t aware of this, and I have to admit I’m slightly shocked.

I’m blocked by THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN????? The oldest, biggest, most mainstream feminist group in the US? That organization for women now blocks women for not agreeing that men can be women? In other words the oldest, biggest, most mainstream feminist group in the US is now shunning feminist women in favor of anti-feminist misogynist men?

How did that happen?

Mind you, I’m assuming that’s why I’m blocked, but I don’t remember anything specific.

But it’s grotesque. It’s grotesque – mainstream feminist organizations shunning feminist women for the sake of non-feminist men. How is that going to advance feminist goals? How is that going to do … Read the rest



Trafficking

Sep 18th, 2022 10:16 am | By

Texas governor plays cruel childish games with other people’s lives:

About 50 migrants, including a one-month-old baby, have been sent in a bus from Texas to the Washington DC residence of Vice-President Kamala Harris, in the latest move by Republican-led states to transfer migrants unannounced across the country.

The bus let off the migrants, who are believed to be mostly Venezuelan, outside the Naval Observatory, the traditional home of US vice-presidents, on Saturday morning.

They had been sent by the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, while another group were flown to Martha’s Vineyard, in Massachusetts, on a flight organized by Florida governor Ron DeSantis earlier this week.

“Rapey McForehead” is trending on Twitter so I looked to find out why. The Washington Post:

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) told a former White House aide that he was seeking a preemptive pardon from President Donald Trump regarding an investigation in which he is a target, according to testimony given to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Johnny McEntee, according to people familiar with his testimony, told investigators that Gaetz told him during a brief meeting “that they are launching an investigation into him or that there’s an investigation into him,” without specifying who was investigating Gaetz.

McEntee added that Gaetz told him “he did not do anything wrong but they are

Smash those traditional structures

Sep 18th, 2022 5:20 am | By

Aaaand The Atlantic runs an article by freelance writer Maggie Mertens that announces Separating Sports by Sex Doesn’t Make Sense. It’s every bit as stupid as it sounds, and then some.

Though school sports are typically sex-segregated, a new generation of kids isn’t content to compete within traditional structures.

Ah yes, it’s just a matter of “traditional structures,” like women having to wear skirts. Thank god the new generation of kids has seen through it at last.

School sports are typically sex-segregated, and in America some of them have even come to be seen as either traditionally for boys or traditionally for girls: Think football, wrestling, field hockey, volleyball. However, it’s becoming more common for these lines to blur,
