Iranian women rebel against headscarves, start #MyStealthyFreedom campaign

Now this is REAL feminism. I love it: Iranian women are posting pictures of themselves online without headscarves and racking up thousands of Facebook likes in the process, the latest challenge to Tehran’s strict morality laws mandating that women keep their hair covered in public. A Facebook page called “Stealthy Freedoms of Iranian women” showing […]

I’ll just go ahead and warn you – if you read this article in full, you’re probably going to want to literally scream — or punch a wall.  The “sex educator” featured in the article about actually FILMED her abortion in an attempt to erase the “stigma” that comes attached to an act that terminates the life […]

 

Disturbing: NY Health Dept. doesn’t inspect its 25 abortion clinics very often

Posted by: ST on April 7, 2014 at 7:14 pm » 4 Comments

I wish I could say I was shocked by this news but, sadly, I’m not (bolded emphasis added by me): The state Health Department is failing to inspect many of New York’s abortion clinics — with some facilities escaping scrutiny for more than a decade, bombshell documents obtained by The Post reveal. Health inspectors regulate […]

Get ready for the  next round of “war on women” demagoguery. Bloomberg News reports that embattled Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) will be receiving some more Super-PAC help soon as the pro-abortion group Emily’s List has launched a political action committee here in North Carolina specifically to aid her in her reelection fight: Emily’s List, a Washington […]

 

QOTD: Unhinged “feminist” @AmandaMarcotte compares abortion to cavities

Posted by: ST on March 20, 2014 at 6:16 pm » 10 Comments

Via Kristine Marsh at Newsbusters: Lest there be any doubt, Amanda Marcotte really hates pro-lifers. In a two-part rant posted March 14 and 17 on Raw Story, the morally challenged feminist writer attacked pro-lifers as “consummate liars,” “anti-choice kooks” with “boring,” “half-baked nonsense” and “shit arguments.” But Marcotte’s hate doesn’t stop at pro-lifers. It extends to the babies they […]

Much hay has been made over the last week over the campaign launched by Facebook COO and Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chávez called “Ban Bossy” – a movement that supposedly seeks to “empower” young girls by symbolically “banning” so-called hurtful words that allegedly “hold them back” from wanting to take leadership positions when they […]

Political chameleon @WendyDavisTexas softens on 20 wk abortion ban

Posted by: ST on February 12, 2014 at 12:41 pm » 5 Comments

Well, she’s flip flopping on everything else, so why not her signature issue, too? The Dallas Morning News reports: Wendy Davis said Tuesday that she would have supported a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, if the law adequately deferred to a woman and her doctor. Davis, a Fort Worth senator and the […]

 

Liberal college “feminists” develop the vapors over nearly-nude male statue

Posted by: ST on February 6, 2014 at 8:04 pm » 6 Comments

And they say conservative women are fainting couch prudes? Via the Boston Globe (bolded emphasis added by me): A realistic-looking statue of a man sleepwalking in his underwear near the center of Wellesley College has created a stir among the women on campus, especially as more than 100 students at the all-women’s college signed a […]
