Boy Crisis: Who's Afraid of Carol Gilligan?
Gilligan reported that girls found themselves voiceless and adrift. Go to any schoolyard, and you will find that more often it is the voices of boys who have become silenced.


Bias Suit Reveals the Truth behind Schools' Boy Crisis
Two decades ago, boys were doing just fine. But now girls outnumber boys 2 to 1 on the honor roll, and about 60% of Advanced Placement students are female.


Double-Standard Treatment for Child Abusers
Americans' ire has reached the boiling point over female child abusers who are treated with reverential deference by the media and our legal system. As long as we tolerate this gender double-standard, the problem will fester and grow.

Women Who Make Things Worse for Other Women
But feminists are not satisfied to merely lay a guilt trip on women who are contemplating marriage, motherhood, and child-rearing. They patronize and insult the intelligence of women by making the most ludicrous of claims.

Carey Roberts: The Feminist Anti-Kid Crusade
The M.O.M.s then proceeded to do everything in their power to throw dirt on the joint custody idea. But nobody would listen to them. In fact powerful politicos -- Republicans and Democrats alike -- began to speak out on the importance of fatherhood.

The MOM Squad Capers
Now they are going around the country and meeting behind closed doors with judges and lawmakers, spreading their anti-father calumnies. Their aim is to stampede them into passing laws based on the premise that dads are dangerous, so we'd be better off if they were all locked up somewhere.

Feminine Mystique, or Feminine Mistake?
This month, The Vagina Monologues is being performed at 600 colleges around the country. There smart, ambitious co-eds will look on as a lesbian actress seduces a 16-year-old girl, only to be reassured, 'If it was a rape, it was a good rape.' These women are then instructed to reclaim their sexuality by chanting, 'My vagina is huggable.'

Comic Relief from the World Health Organization
But that rendition of gender equality didn't sit too well with the lavender ladies at WHO's department of Gender, Women, and Health. They solved that problem by designing a study that--you guessed right again--only interviewed females.

Winner of the Coveted 2005 Award for Political Incorrectness
This year three stalwart truth-tellers stood up to a tsunami of prevarication to make the short list for the 2005 Award for Political Incorrectness.

PBS Propaganda Piece
The rad-fems have devised a remarkable plan for family destablization: fabricate a bizarre accusation, get the media to believe it, whip the populace into a frenzy, and then pressure chivalrous legislators to pass laws that do away with fathers.

Fem-Think and the Civil Rights of Men
Fem-think insists that in patriarchal society, women are not only the biggest victims, women are its only victims. Despite the absurdity of that proposition, the gender warriors endlessly advance that idea. Repeat a lie a thousand times, and people begin to believe it.

Requiem for the Leftist Welfare Utopia
There are two recent publications which affirm the abiding truth that fathers are one of our nations most treasured natural resources.

UN Resolution 1325: Then and Now, Head in the Sand
Noncombatant men have been and continue to be the most frequent targets of mass killing and genocidal slaughter.

Purveyors of Deceit: Why PBS Must Yank 'Breaking the Silence'
The PBS producer figured that in the court of public opinion, the self-assured testimony of an immigrant mom, pitched to a group of dewy-eyed women and set against appropriate background music, would prevail over the cold truth of child abuse reports, depositions, and court decisions.

Jim Crow Days for Men
What VAWA does is to promote divorce and provide women with weapons, such as the restraining order and free legal assistance, to get sole custody of their children, Phyllis Schlafly warns. And sole custody equals many years of tax-free child support checks.

The Laura Bush We Don't Know
Every time a woman hits a hiccup in the long march for female emancipation, it seems that someone trots out the specter of knuckle-dragging males trying to send their womenfolk back to the Cuissinart.

PBS' "Breaking the Silence" Not Ready for Prime Time
So why would PBS engage in this wanton abuse of truth? The answer lies in the broader feminist crusade to overturn the Patriarchy. Get dad out of the picture, they say, and the children will grow up to be more enlightened human beings.

The Female Libido Becomes Unleashed
As communism began to take hold in Russia, newly-emancipated women pursued liaisons with wealthy men, with the aim of becoming pregnant and then suing the men for alimony.

The First Female President: The Fantasy and the Reality
Then there's the truth-in-packaging issue. Some female politicians project an altar-girl image of enlightened centrism, all the while lobbying behind the scenes for radical leftist legislation.

Women Still Unequal before the Law
Under old English law, when a wife over-spent the family budget, it was the husband who went to debtor's prison. And during the 1800s, if an American woman committed a crime, it was her husband who did time.

Party-Poopers at the UN Birthday Bash
It came as bad news to the hairy-leg ladies who care only about providing abortion services for 12-year-old girls.

Tragedy Wears a Human Face: Reply to Rep. Ellen Sauerbrey
Once you start to suggest that males are a menace to women you are undermining the basis of the traditional family.

How Will We Cure the Radical Feminist Cancer?
Even the notion of truth itself has come under attack by postmodern feminism, which claims that truth is simply another tool for the patriarchal subjugation of women.

Marriage Movement at the Crossroads
A quick run to the local mall reveals hordes of scantily-clad young females who are aggressively advertising their sexual charms. But when the subject turns to cohabitation, marriage advocates feel compelled to fall back on the old motif of male aggressors who ravish innocent virgins.

Rape Hysteria, Redux
In Washington DC, news of the sexual assault of an officers wife triggered the spectacle of hundreds of uniformed sailors and soldiers who chased and beat Blacks, all within view of the US Capitol building. The sexual assault report later turned out to be a hoax.

Restraining Orders for Abusive Grandmas?
The abuse of restraining orders has now become widespread. In Massachusetts, 30,000 restraining orders are issued each year.

The Feminist Brief Against Nominee Roberts
Roberts argued against Title IX, the law that shuts down men's athletic teams because not enough women have been signing up for synchronized swimming.

A Government Program Is No Substitute for a Bear-Hug
The effects of these federal programs are predictable -- and tragic. Now, 16 million children live only with their mothers.

The Sun of Feminism Shines Brightly in Socialist Europe
Norway has decreed that henceforth all companies will be obliged to meet a 40% female board quota or else face closure.

Feminist Cover-Up Means Billion-Dollar Taxpayer Shake-Down
The proponents of VAWA seek to weaken and ultimately reconfigure the traditional family.

VAWA Law Polarizes the Sexes, Weakens the Family
Has anyone noticed that Constitutional protections of due process are being shredded by this near-hysteria over domestic violence?

Whatever Happened to Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice?
The Sisterhood exploits women's vulnerabilities by playing on an easy sense of me-mania.

A Rash of Feminist Hate Speech
Years ago the rad-fems highjacked the federal Violence Against Women Act, and have relentlessly milked the issue to inflame the fears of women.

Catholic Patriarch Helps Derail Hillary's White House Plans
During the 1980s Pope John Paul II worked courageously and relentlessly behind the scenes to topple Polish Communism. Now Cardinal Ratzinger is picking up where John Paul left off, publicly denouncing the scourge of socialism.

NYT and Amnesty International Collude in Gender Propaganda Piece
Strange that a New York Times reporter would write a column about a ground-breaking report, but never reveal its title or tell us where to find it.

Un-Constitutional VAWA Law Helped by a Propaganda Ploy
The Super Bowl Hoax, as it was later dubbed, no doubt will become a classic in the propaganda textbooks.

Gender: Good Riddance, Farewell
That two percent sex difference is greater than the biological gap between humans and chimpanzees. In other words, the built-in differences between men and women are akin to the dissimilarities between man and ape.

The Rise of Big Sister-ism
The rise of no-fault, unilateral divorce does not trouble the Sisterhood. In fact, they welcome it.

Hillary Plays the Female Supremacist Card
To Saint Hillary, the enemy is that vast penile conspiracy called the Patriarchy.

Soft Totalitarians on the Loose at the UN
The femmes want to gender mainstream the rest of the UN. Gender mainstreaming is the process of assessing the implications for women and men of every planned action.

Something Amiss in the United Nations' Gender Health Agenda
Something has gone terribly wrong. The health programs of the World Health Organization are violating the U.N.'s most cherished founding principles.

Orwellian State at the UN Women's Conference
After listening all day to the ideological slogans, factual distortions, and emotional harangues, one almost begins to believe they are true. That's how brainwashing works.

Feminist Head-Games at the United Nations
The vast majority of women who might otherwise qualify as public intellectuals would rather recite the feminist catechism or articulate some new twists and refinements on it.

The Pink Pussy-Cat Bares Her Fangs
The feminist catechism does not take well to apostasy, and it fell to one Susan Estrich to deliver the ex-communication. Estrich likely would have been John Kerrys first nomination to the United States Supreme Court.

Women Who Treat Women as Sex Objects
But now, a whole generation of women has come to believe that all manner of lewd and indecent behavior is acceptable -- just so long as it can be justified with feminist buzz words such as liberation, empowerment, and choice.

Misandrist Marriage Movement
The marriage movement faces many challenges, not the least of which is that many men have come to believe that marriage is a raw deal. And we're not talking about just a few malcontents.

Men Feeling Blue on February the Fourth
But the American Heart Association didn't even bother to survey men. Sometimes you almost have to feel sorry for those afflicted by political correctness, persons who are so easily taken in by their pat answers and delusions of gender enlightenment.

Pronouncement of Bias at the Washington Post
But the strangling of Bobbie Jo Stinnett by a deranged woman threatened to sabotage the over-arching message of the WP series: that pregnant women need stronger laws to protect them from the male menace.

Feminist Utopia, Social Nightmare
Every era has its utopian movements that hold out the promise of social perfectability. One such movement is feminism, which claims the path to social nirvana is the liberation of women and the creation of a genderless society.

Unequal Pay for Equal Work?
This study of TV directors raises some lingering questions. Were qualified male candidates being passed over because of their sex?

Men Step Aside, the Rad-Fems are Set to Win the Culture War
We have now passed the point of no return. Too many infants are warehoused in day care centers. Too many men have been unfairly stereotyped and falsely accused.

Winner of the 2004 Award for Political Incorrectness
Political Correctness dictates that fathers must pay their child support obligations -- even if they aren't the real dads. That rigid mind-set has given rise to the welfare scam of the decade.

When the Sisterhood Rules the World: The Sad Tale of UNICEF
Bellamy advocated favoring girls over boys, a practice the United Nations euphemistically refers to as positive discrimination. She pushed through her pet Go Girls! program, which ignored the fact that in some parts of the world, the schooling of boys lags behind girls.

Long Live the Matriarchy!
But in one of those strange twists of history, the feminist establishment did an abrupt about-face. All across the United States, local chapters of the National Organization for Women came out in opposition to equal parenting.

The Unfolding AIDS Scandal at the UN
Every day, 8,500 men and women die from the modern Black Death that we call AIDS. Most of those deaths could be avoided if the UN took a practical approach that is based on science, not ideology. And pitting women against men is hardly the answer.

Patriarchal Power or Marxist Mischief?
The conclusion is clear: chivalry is alive and well within the halls of Congress. Our elected patriarchs unabashedly cater to the needs of women.

Election Results Bode Poorly for the Rad-Fem Movement
Compared to 2000, support for democrat Kerry declined among a broad range of women: white women, married women, and older women. Even working women were less likely to vote for Kerry in 2004 than Gore in 2000.

NASCAR Dads and Soccer Moms Join Forces
With the exception of the abortion issue, the Bush campaign was reluctant to ruffle the feathers of the radical feminists. As a result, the Gender Warriors left over from the Clinton Administration continued to have free rein throughout the federal government.

All Hail to the Panderer-in-Chief
Pandering, of course, is the stock-in-trade of any political campaign. Still, it was impressive to watch the two presidential candidates pulling out all the stops to woo the female vote.

Kerry: Girlie-Man, Next Leader of the Free World?
Is this the voice of a self-confident male who is in a marital relationship with equal say and mutual respect? Or is this the whine of a hen-pecked husband?

Rise of the Feminist Propaganda State
When mainstream media outlets use the word equality to denote its exact opposite -- and nobody seems to mind -- you know that we're in trouble.

Achieving Feminist Class Consciousness
Radical feminism can be traced back directly to Marxism-Leninism. The feminist ideology, framework, and utopian aspirations all have their origin in the writings of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels.

Women Victimized by Feminist Fables
But here's the biggest whopper of all: the claim that feminism seeks to bring about gender equality. To the radical feminist, gender equality is only a one-way street.

The Wonderful, Wacky World of Fem-Speak
Fem-Speak is a rich, emotive language, filled with subtlety and nuance.
