Mother’s’ Day 2017…

leave a comment »

Patrice Lewis  raises an  interesting question:  is it mother’s or women’s day?   I favor Mother’s Day,  because that’s what it was established for and mothers hold a unique place,  at least in the Western world.   So-called feminists are fond of sneeringly calling actual mothers “breeders”, yet that epithet is reserved for Western women,  and applied even more enthusiastically to Christian women,  whereas they have nothing to say about the women and girls who suffer under shariah and Islam,  and who are,  in fact,  breeders so far as their society’s males are concerned.

Jesus was a  big fan  of children,  as well as their mothers,  which is but one reason progressives and our previous president so despise those of us who cling to our God,  guns —  you know the rest.

A mother of the  duck variety  and all but one of her brood were rescued from a swimming pool and escorted to a nearby lake by a group of volunteers.

This little autistic boy’s parents fell down on their job, but a Kansas policeman stepped up and  saved the  child.

I was invited to a mother’s day luncheon by a family member and happily went and had great food and a wonderful time with everyone.  I hope all of you were as fortunate.

Whiny women march…

leave a comment »

Since the 1970’s a woman in America could complain of abuse by an employer or business, then sit on her fanny while the federal government pursued the alleged miscreant, and the complaining woman would get the fine or jury award and we taxpayers would pick up the entire cost of the venture.  That is not human rights,  or civil rights,  or even women’s rights  –  it’s special rights to which no one else is entitled,  and that is how the so-called women’s rights groups want to keep it.

They also want to keep getting the tax breaks for minority and women-owned businesses,  despite numerous reports that many of the women are merely fronts for the businesses and contribute nothing to it beyond getting them the preferential loan treatments and special dispensations.

The progressive women’s groups keep some very unsavory company,  such as  the D.C. organizer,  who is pro Sharia law and has ties to the  terrorist group Hamas.   Additionally,  at least 56 partners of the D.C. march  have ties  to George Soros,  as well  as Hillary  Clinton.

I channel-surfed to see what the marchers were saying.   Many of them just seemed to be hysterically  anti-Trump, but none of them made much sense,  especially those complaining about an apparent nation-wide shortage of  pink yarn with which to make their pussy hats.   Drew Belsky had a  much better  idea,  except I doubt many of those marchers could fry an egg successfully.

Progressive feminism’s call for “equality”  doesn’t help  women, and neither did the  vulgar language   and crude costumes.  Defiance of what?  Solidarity in  what?  In believing you’re cool because you  banned pro-life groups from the march?

There were a  few aerial  push-backs against the drumbeat of “my victimhood is  greater than yours” and “my grievance  is more important than yours.”

Since this march was a spectacular failure, the progressive females have decided to promote another march for a “Day Without Women” or some such thing.   The chief promoter is a  convicted terrorist.   But her militant and bloody background should make  her perfect  for the militant phase of protests.

HuffPo loses its mind…

with 2 comments

I thought this was parody at first,  but the Huffington Post has done some extremely odd things of late.   This one  takes the cake.   If the prophet Muhammed was the first feminist,  I am now the Queen of England.   What world do these people inhabit?   If they are this stupid,  this blind,  how do they manage to feed and clothe themselves?

The rape epidemic is fiction…

leave a comment »

Kevin Williamson has done a  masterful job  of exposing the squishy,  corrupt underbelly of the feminist movement shrieking about the culture of rape.   When you have survey respondents who are unable to say whether they were actually raped or not,  you have one hell of a problem with your definition of that criminal act.   The feminists and liberals and progressives include everything from hurt feelings and wounded sensibilities on up to actual sexual assault,  but they hold the former to be on the same level as the latter.

That is both illogical and stupid,  but that pretty much describes those groups anyway.   Never mind that the numbers do strongly suggest that the number of sexual assaults is only a third of what it was twenty years ago.   Rape still disproportionately affects poor women and incarcerated men,  the urban more than the suburban,  and the rural more than the suburban.   The bottom line is that,  no matter how much the Left wishes it were otherwise,  and no matter how desperately it tries to alter our perceptions,  human nature doesn’t change much.

Five feminist myths…

leave a comment »

Christina Hoff Sommers  presents five  of the worst feminist myths that just won’t die.   The one thing they all have in common is that they are all lies,  as substantial as dust clouds,  utterly baseless.
