Sexism at Google?

The Economist just wrote a wonderful “detailed, ringing rebuttal” to the former Google employee who circulated a sexist message internally, but which leaked out and caused a big kerfuffle (and got him fired). Even if you are tired of that story, this is definitely worth a read. It is both serious, while also dripping with […]

Congressional Sexism?

Some people have started to notice something interesting. All attention was focused on John McCain as he made a dramatic return to the Senate after being diagnosed with cancer, giving a speech that received a standing ovation, and then voting against the Obamacare repeal. Ironically, there was another senator who was also recently diagnosed with […]

Environment Up!

© Jen Sorensen Jen Sorensen has some great commentary to go with her hilarious comic: Most people seem to get the sarcasm of this cartoon, but I’d like to be clear that my intention is to neither deprecate the “feminine” nor celebrate hyper-masculinity. I’ve been wanting to write a comic for a while about how […]

The Other Shoo Drops

Last year, CEO Roger Ailes was dismissed from Fox News because of sexual harassment, and the Murdoch family pledged to clean up the network’s culture. Yesterday, they finally got rid of Bill O’Reilly. My only question is, what took them so long (obvious answer, money)? If you have any doubts about O’Reilly deserving to be […]

Sexism ‘R’ Us

Sexism is alive and well in the US. First we elect a president who publicly brags about grabbing women by the pussy. I mean, seriously? However, I suppose Trump voters could possibly excuse this by claiming that they voted for him for other reasons. But consider this. Recently, Bill O’Reilly and Fox News paid out […]

Reset?

Donald Trump attempted to reset his flailing campaign today at a speech in Pennsylvania. So about the women who are accusing him of sexual misconduct he said “All of these liars will be sued.” Nevertheless, I’m willing to make a bold (and maybe crazy) prediction. I could very well be proven wrong, but I suspect […]

Grab ‘Em By the PU$$Y

I find this video interesting because it walks the ambiguous line between entertainment and political statement. At first I didn’t like it (and didn’t post it), but after more viewing I think it is actually very powerful. What do you think?

Losing to a Girl

The New Republic has an interesting theory about Donald Trump. Trump is losing to Hillary Clinton because he is so completely sexist that he is incapable of taking Clinton seriously. And their arguments are pretty good. In the primaries, his opponents were all men except for Carly Fiorina. Note that all of Trump’s insults against […]

The Locker Room Alibi

Groping for Irony

Donald Trump takes irony and hypocrisy to a new level: Trump’s message for most of this week was that women alleging sexual assault — regardless of how many years had passed, whether they filed charges, whether their claims were held up by the courts — deserve to be heard, rather than discredited or attacked. Trump […]

Parallels?

So Melania Trump has forgiven Donald, announcing: The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation […]

Pussygate

I find it ironic that Donald Trump is suddenly being done in, not by anything related to being president (such as policies) but by the fact that he is a sexist asshole, which should have been long obvious to everyone (even if they weren’t actually paying much attention). As Jonah Goldberg put it: Donald Trump […]

Trump at his Finest?

© Jack Ohman Donald Trump walked right into a trap set by Hillary Clinton at the debate, and now that he was caught like a deer in the headlights calling former Miss Universe Alicia Machado “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” (both sexist and racist!), Trump can’t stop himself and is doubling and even tripling down. […]

Girl Talk at the Trump Tower

Maurine Dowd has a hilarious op-ed in the NY Times. Here’s just the start: LET’S stop being so hard on Donald Trump. He has done us an enormous public service. After this down-and-dirty battle of the sexes, we will never look at gender in politics the same way. For centuries, women were seen as unfit […]

Republicans for Bill?

WaPo has an interesting article today about Trump supporters who loathe Hillary but love her husband Bill Clinton. According to polls, around a fifth of people who support Donald Trump view Bill favorably. During recent interviews, many Trump voters went out of their way to tell the author of the article that they abhor Hillary […]
