There was a reason this Canadian expatriate missed Canada of late. In particular, the every-day normalcy of its local CTV News. Often so apolitical, Canadians are always less eager to feature the caterwauling of politicians than cover the joys of a cat rescue. Or, a kiss. How natural, then, that a CTV Toronto News anchor...

The Truth and its Consequences
"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years, because they didn't wear a veil," Mattis said. "You know guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot 'em." The first rule of human thought is that everything is... Read More

A Pre-Enstupidation View
It was 1953 in the white newly prosperous suburbs of Arlington, Virginia, just outside the Yankee Capital. I was eight, having been born, like so many of my small compatriots, nine months and fifteen minutes after our fathers got home from the war. These men, my father anyway, had spent years in the Pacific, being... Read More
All females nowadays, and the feminists in particular, are under siege by the transgender community. Men who say they are women are invading women’s restrooms, locker-rooms and out-competing against them in sports. The lack of privacy makes those on the distaff side uncomfortable, while the athletic competition makes it difficult for them to win any... Read More
oday we will have Profound Thought. Actually it’s the only kind we ever have in this corner of the internet. Thunderous insight. Volcanic perceptiveness. That sort of thing. Anyway, some slightly addled questions about robots, and sexbots and their relations with people and how smart they are or aren’t. For example, can you love a... Read More
Several years ago four of us who were high school and Georgia Tech classmates got together for a reunion to remember the fun times of our youth while we could still remember. A day or two before our reunion there had been one of those massive “gay pride” marches in New York or San Francisco.... Read More
It's been more than two years since Moira Donegan's "Shitty Media Men" list began circulating, effectively bringing the MeToo movement to the world of media. The Google spreadsheet was part of a whisper network of women making claims of rape, assault and sexual harassment at the hands of male colleagues in various newsrooms, particularly "woke"...

I’ve taught economics at Indiana University for some twenty-five years (after earlier positions at UCLA, the University of Chicago’s Business School, and Yale Law School), punctuated by sabbatical years visiting the University of Tokyo Economics Department, Oxford’s Nuffield College, Harvard Law School, and the Harvard Economics Department. Lauren Robel is the Provost of Indiana University-Bloomington... Read More

“Wow, you sure know your Nietzsche and FBI crime statistics. Your future employers will be super impressed by your general knowledge!” It seems that more and more young Western men are finding it difficult to find their place in the world. In the United States, men’s wages have stagnated over the last four decades, while... Read More
In Sweden the rape of white Swedish women by black immigrant-invaders never stops. In the latest outrage four black Eritreans forced a 13 year old Swedish girl into a bathroom and took turns raping her while filming the gang rape. According to the news report, the vaginal rape was “preceded by violence consisting of at... Read More
A World Based On Lies Is A False World
During the course of my life I have watched the Western World abandon all of the values that made it successful. Despite all its crimes, and they are many, the Western World succeeded. Everyone wanted to be part of it, and it will be the demise of the Russians that they still do. The Western... Read More

During World War I, seven of the medical schools attached to the University of London decided to start admitting female students, as did Oxford and Edinburgh University. But by 1928, five of these London colleges had decided to stop admitting women, with the other two heavily restricting female numbers. Oxford voted for a ratio of... Read More
The Huffington Post editorial staff, circa 2016
The speed of social change in the modern era, and in particular in the contemporary West, is so rapid that we all are liable to feel a bit lost. A recent example of this was provided by none other than Hillary Clinton, that most “progressive” representative of global oligarchy. You see, the 71-year-old Clinton, whose... Read More
My recent article, “No Motherhood, No People” ( ) resulted in some perceptive comments. Here is one slightly edited comment: “It’s sadly ironic that “feminism” has such disdain for femininity. Our society now heaps the most praise on women when they exhibit traditionally male traits such as strength, independence and excellence in STEM occupations. The... Read More
It is paradoxical that feminism together with other ideological movements has destroyed the natural feminism of women and turned them into sexual items. The 19-year old who intends to get her tubes tied is turning herself into a pure sexual commodity ( ). That women are transitioning themselves into sex dolls is a paradoxical result... Read More

Considering the American rightwing’s absorption in war and hatred of Muslims, worship of capitalism whose operatives have sent American middle class jobs abroad, and blind support of Israel, a racist country, Americans desperately need a real leftwing. All we have is a fake leftwing. I sometimes think the last American leftist was British born Alex... Read More

The Republic of Ireland has just made it easier to get divorced in a May 23 referendum supported by an amazing (given how Ireland was as recently as the 1960s) 82% of voters [Ireland Votes Overwhelmingly to Ease Divorce Restrictions, by Ed O’Loughlin, New York Times, May 26, 2019].

Sometimes your past returns in the strangest of ways, as happened to me when today’s article from TomDispatch regular Rebecca Gordon first crossed my doorstep.

How Young Women Learn to Hate Their Genitals
I’ll never forget the first time I saw my own menstrual period start. I was seated on the floor in a circle of women, legs bent in front of me, soles facing each other, a mirror resting on my feet. The flashlight directed at the mirror illuminated my vagina, which was held open by a... Read More

Transsexuals are busting out all over—not surprisingly, since most of them are male-to-female and, as I showed a while ago, are actually very high testosterone men Thus Charles Landeros (above) the Portland, Oregon Antifa leader recently killed in a wild January 11 school house brawl with police, was a transsexual who identified as “they” (and...

It happened again, the unmanly submission to feminist manipulation. Again they’re compromised, the almost invariably progressive professors. “Stand up!” urge the Deplorables, though so poor, ignorant and, God forgive them, republican. “But we have no spines,” cry the professoriate, returning to their coloring books, Playdough and safe spaces. If you’ve been paying attention to the... Read More
Above, Gillette, which has been attacking toxic masculinity, previously appealed to normal male feelings with \"grid girls\". (Hat tip, Larry Elder.)
Masculinity is under attack. The American Psychological Association was long ago taken over by the Left, so the APA’s bizarre recent guidelines claiming that “Traditional Masculinity” is psychologically harmful to males and implying that by males should be encouraged to be feminine, shouldn’t be that much of a surprise [Psychologists call ‘traditional masculinity’ harmful, face...

Speaking recently to Fox News’ Arthel Neville, Andrew Napolitano, also of Fox News, repeated old feminist canards about sexual assault against women being an under-reported, ever-present crime in American society. The violence-against-women industry in North America—you know, the one-in-four-women-are-assaulted rot—is propped up by the sub-science or pseudoscience of violence-against-women statistics. In particular, violence-against-women surveys are... Read More

Muslim men murder two European women backpacking across a Morocco mountain range and, right away pundits holler, “ISIS, Jihad, extremism, terrorism.” Likewise misleading are the leads from the intelligence authorities, who seem to confirm that, but for “ISIS, Jihad, extremism, terrorism”—it would be perfectly safe to adopt the improvident habit embraced by the deceased and...

Defending Women Against Bat-Brained Viragos
In my capacity of shade-tree anthropologist at large, I am trying to make sense of the far Left. It is tough sledding. Most of it makes as much sense as lug nuts on a birthday cake. Help me. I am really confused. I can’t see that the Left actually is Left, I mean. The Left... Read More
Radical feminists are now being banned by Twitter not because they hate men, which is perfectly OK as far as Twitter is concerned, but because they object to “transwomen.” What is a “transwoman?” As far as I can understand, a “transwoman” is a male with a penis who declares himself to be a women and...

It’s not a shock that Postmodernism has taken hold of subjects such as Literature or Social Anthropology. The more subjective the subject is, the easier it is for ideology to infiltrate it. But surely quantitative science—like genetics and physics—will survive as a fortress of logic? Wrong. An article this week in The New York Times... Read More

Throughout Brett Kavanaugh’s ordeal, Democratic women and their house-trained houseboys had attempted to derail the decent part of the process, rendering a U.S. Senate Supreme Court confirmation hearing a small-minded, mean-spirited, undignified and gossipy affair. In tenor, the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing resembled a tabloid, a woman’s magazine, or the female-dominated, Trump-watch panels, assembled daily by... Read More
Societal Collapse awaits in the wings if climate change and nuclear war don’t finish us off first
The Cheney-Bush and Obama regimes destroyed due process, with the result that American citizens were detained in prison indefinitely without evidence and murdered without evidence or trial. In violation of US and international laws, the US government used torture to produce “terrorists,” who were not terrorists, in order to justify Washington’s wars, wars that have... Read More

Jack Smith IV is a fairly standard example of a Leftist journalist who promotes Antifa, holds whites in low regard, and strives to paint everyone on the Right as a Nazi. His Twitter bio boasts of his union membership, and he describes himself as a “union thug.” Smith wrote for Mic.com, and specialized in trying... Read More
Is “feminist intellect” an oxymoron? Is Vagynocracy — the vagina-worshipping, gynaecocratic cult of feminism — an intellectual and ethical void? Countless feminists certainly seem determined to prove so. I’m not a fan of the American judge Brett Kavanaugh and I’m suspending judgment about whether his appointment to the Supreme Court will be a Good Thing.... Read More

If there is one thing that still unites Americans across the ever more intellectually suffocating and bitterly polarized political spectrum our imaginations have been crammed into like rush hour commuters on the Tokyo Metro, it’s our undying love of identity politics.

The utter failure of democratic politics
The Democrats and their feminist allies failed the country in their approach to the Kavanaugh hearing. Instead of finding out whether Kavanaugh believes in the unitary executive theory that the president has powers unaccountable to Congress and the Judiciary and agrees that a Justice Department underling, a Korean immigrant, can write secret memos that permit...

One of many cringe-making moments in Christine Blasey Ford’s protracted complaint before the Senate Judiciary Committee—and the country—was an affectation-dripping reference to her hippocampus. “Indelible in the hippocampus” was the memory of supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her, some 36 years back, asserted Ford in that scratchy, valley-girl voice of hers. With that,... Read More
In my October 2 column I pointed out the disparity in treatment of the male football coach at the University of Massachusetts and a radical feminist professor at Georgetown University. The disparity is amazingly extreme. The football coach had no intention of offending anyone when he used the word “rape” to express his opinion that... Read More
American feminists have finally broken the spirit of the American white heterosexual male. I have been watching for some time the American male, or what little is left of him, meekly accept feminists’ definitions of words and male behavior. First the feminists turned the male respect for, and politeness toward, women, respect inculcated into my... Read More

Oh God. Oh God. Is there no surcease? I know, silly question. Squalling protesters: Half of the country seems fifteen years younger than its chronological age. Staged ire. Sordid passion of the herd. Hysteria. Irrationality. Weird accusations. Savage feminists. As per custom, it is all about how horrible men are. One of the sillier sillinesses... Read More

Boys and girls are different. Once, this difference had been celebrated. Vive la petit difference, exclaimed the French, and other nations also enjoyed it.

The 90th Academy Awards ceremony, ostensibly honoring the best films and performances of 2017, will be held Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
