I ran across this report earlier today. I’ve seen some bad reporting over the years, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an article that seems to be deliberately designed to make people more ignorant. Let’s look at a few points: 1. If you work at certain types of for-profit companies, they no longer have… Continue reading 5 Things About the Hobby Lobby Ruling
Satire. UK to launch anti-terror ‘stop it, we don’t like it’ campaign A real campaign sign:. Hey Rapists! Stop Raping Sigh.
I’ve noted previously how bad some social science research is. Well, top (or should that be bottom?) of the pile has always been Women’s studies. That’s not just my opinion either – in one unguarded moment during the 90s I was witness to a conversation where some liberal students admitted freely that were academics to actually have to produce something useful, Women’s Studies… Continue reading The best feminist textbook and it’s still completely bogus
It is a constant source of amazement just how badly the Democratic party behave when faced with strong, conservative women. I wonder if anyone will ask Heitkamp or Democrat House candidate Pam Gulleson, both of whom have made hay about the “Republican War On Women,” what they think of their past and present party leadership… Continue reading The War On Women… who are candidates for the Republican Party
One of the sillier aspects of the already extremely silly “slut walks” was the oft-repeated claim that only in the case of rape were the actions of the victim blamed for causing the crime. The claim that such statements are only made with regard to rape are a case of truth being selected to fit… Continue reading Blaming the Victim
Ok, since someone asked I’ve done a quick count. Hope these numbers are right. Here’s the data. The actual number of electorate seats increased over the peroid, but didn’t significantly change the overall trend – flat after the second election. 1996 1999 2002 2005 2008 Total Electorate Seats 65 67 69 69 70 Labour 5… Continue reading Women Elected to Electorate Seats
No Right Turn celebrates Women’s Sufferage Up until 1981, you could generally count the number of women in the New Zealand Parliament at any one time on the fingers of one hand. Things began to change in the 80’s, with women’s representation rising to 10% of the House, and then 20% in 1993. MMP almost… Continue reading MMP, bad for Women’s Sufferage
Turns out that the pay gap thing was bad data not taking into account individual choices. It seems that once you figure in lifestyle choices like leaving work for a few months, women are probably paid more for the same work than men – in the USA anyway. I suspect it’s just the same here.… Continue reading Feminism achieves complete success!
Well, there’s something that hasn’t had wide currency. Then, in mid August, Assange was charged with rape following sexual encounters with two Swedish women. Assange declared the charges ”baseless and disturbing” and said they were part of a ”smear campaign” by WikiLeaks detractors. The rape charges were withdrawn several days later, but then reinstated. The… Continue reading Isn’t that interesting – Wikileaks Wikileaking
As we all know, Iran is harmless. Their only fault is standing up to the USA, and having their president’s threat to wipe Israel off the map published in the international media. So the left should have no problem with this. NEW YORK — Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its… Continue reading Iran – Where Women’s Rights Rule!
