Are universal statements always a problem?

Or just sometimes? It occurs to me that many (“ALL!” “Shh.”) of our problems around these parts viz every new conflagration, from our recent conversation with Mallorie Nasrallah, to the statement by DJ Grothe that we only blog about controversial topics for hits, to the pushback against a Rebecca Watson blog title as though it …

In defense of my male feminism

I’ve had listed for some time, as part of my profile on the right, the fact that I consider myself a feminist. I put it in shortly after joining Freethought Blogs and being assailed in very short order by the winged monkeys who have this absurd tendency of descending onto any pro-feminism post, shouting down …

Which is more sexist?

The Dodge Charger Superbowl ad: Or the parody rebuttal: Blag Hag seems to think that by posting the rebuttal, she’s going to get yelled at by sensitive men accusing her of misandry.
