Maybe I Should Just Share Pictures of My Cats

Hard to know what some people wouldn’t find threatening. Write positively about the most qualified, accomplished woman in a generation – some people don’t like that. Write about why she lost an election that everyone thought she was going to win – some don’t like that either, even though, for all intents and purposes, Hillary’s political career is over. You’d think they’d be happy. Not...

Taking on Corporate Media’s Well Paid Hillary-Bashers

I am regularly asked why Andrea Mitchell still has a job at NBC. The complaint is: “She’s so biased against Hillary Clinton, she may as well be campaigning against her.  It’s all sneer, smear and innuendo.” True. But the medium is the message. TV networks pay many millions of dollars per year to pundits, dressing them in tony outfits to sit behind imposing desks in...

Hillary, You May Not Go To The Bathroom and Other Double Standards

The criticisms leveled at Hillary Clinton are in an orbit beyond familiar disparities in male vs. female candidates’ coverage and treatment.

His chapter, “The Restoration of Shame,” makes the case that ‘public shaming would be an effective way to regulate the “irresponsible behavior” of unwed mothers, misbehaving teenagers and welfare recipients.’ Per...

Should Fraternities Be Abolished?

Members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity from both Emery and University of Florida last week invaded an event for veterans and their families, spitting on wounded veterans and their service dogs, urinating on the American Flag. In a seemingly never ending horror show of sexual assault, battery, falls from heights, hazings, death by alcohol and acts ranging from foolhardy to criminal, author and commentator...

The Daily Show Could Help Pass a Bill to Help Rape Victims

“The Daily Show aired a segment entitled “Parenting With the Enemy,” which exposed a shocking loophole that existed in 31 states as of last year.* In those states, a woman did not have the right to terminate the parental rights of her rapist, potentially exposing children conceived during a rape to violent attackers.” Per political strategist and commentator Shawna Vercher, this issue has caused concern...

Kelly Clarkson Told To Step Away From the Deep Dish Pizza

As author and commentator Anita Finlay states, “Women are still graded by appearance first, no matter how great their accomplishments. Worse still, as the media lives to objectify them, women...
