Feminist father: "If you ever hurt my daughter, I swear to God I'll let her navigate her own emotional growth" (video)

This humorous New Yorker video, "A Father's Newfound Feminism," turns stereotypes about a dad meeting his teen daughter's boyfriend upside down. (The "Sorry, I've Benedict Lately" greeting card is a nice touch at the 1:40 mark.) The dialogue, voiced by John Hamm, is an adaptation from a 2018 New Yorker piece by Sophie Kohn, "If You Ever Hurt My Daughter, I Swear To God I'll Let Her Navigate Her Own Emotional Growth": Jaxsen, is it? Fine. Whatever. Look here, PAL, I’ve got something to say. I,...

From ice queen to hothead: how Cate Blanchett negotiated stardom on her own terms

The versatile actor is back on the small screen in two contrasting roles – Phyllis Schlafly, America’s scourge of second-wave feminism, and as an Australian cult leaderThere are actors who leave you transfixed because of the sheer wattage of their star power, and actors who can suck you in so completely that you forget the person behind the part.Cate Blanchett is that rare thing: an actor who does both. Whether freezing courtiers with a single glare in Elizabeth, the 1998 film that made her nam...

What's wrong with being a warrior... and how is it inconsistent with being a woman?

That's one of the protest murals in downtown Madison. It was photographed by me today, near this familiar corner: I know feminism is so last year, but as I'm getting this racial ideology slammed in my face, I must protest on the ground of feminism. A woman can be a warrior! Why would you bemoan your little girls growing into woman warriors?I remember when young women were fascinated by the book "The Woman Warrior" by Maxine Hong Kingston (1976). Excerpt:After I grew up, I heard the chant of F...

"For the first time ever, the weather getting nicer is *not* correlating with more men demanding that I smile, so that’s something. Thanks face mask!"

Tweeted Steph Herold, "an activist and researcher in Queens," quoted in "Silver Lining to the Mask? Not Having to Smile/Like everything else, seasonal catcalling will be different this year" (NYT).Why be thankful for this? 1. It's approving of the hiding of a woman's face as the right approach to fend off male intrusion. That's retrograde! 2. You lose you opportunity to resist and demonstrate your power by maintaining the facial expression you've chosen for yourself. That's passive! 3. You're co...

"Day 10 of protests ends with 'defund police' painted on road leading to [the Wisconsin] Capitol."

The Wisconsin State Journal reports.Protesters painted "defund police" in giant letters on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard Monday night. The street leads from the state Capitol to Monona Terrace, passing between the Madison Municipal Building and City-County Building, at top. We're told this was "without city permission," but I think that has to be read to mean without explicit city permission. Something that conspicuous — taking that much effort, in that location — is actively condoned. It ha...

Rose Byrne: ‘You understand why feminists are furious – we’re still talking about this?’

For the Bridesmaids star, playing Gloria Steinem in her 1970s battle for women’s rights has been a reminder that the same arguments are raging todayA few days before New York locked down and Broadway closed indefinitely, Rose Byrne was on stage in Brooklyn, doing Medea. It was a sold-out run, co-starring her husband, Bobby Cannavale, in an updated version of the Euripides classic. Already, in that first week of March, people were starting to not show up, and those who did were in an odd mood. “T...

I'm trying to write up one wolf story, and another wolf story pops ups. I'm beset by wolves this morning.

I express my frustration out loud like this: "Remember 'Women who Run with the Wolves'? What the hell was that?""I also remember Naomi Wolf," says Meade."May I quote you?""Yes," he answers, adding "I also remember Wolf Blitzer."So the first story I'm trying very hard to process for this blog is: "A Feud in Wolf-Kink Erotica Raises a Deep Legal Question/What do copyright and authorship mean in the crowdsourced realm known as the Omegaverse?"

While it will probably induce no surprise in those already acquainted with the agenda-pushing habits of “localizers”, it was recently divulged on Twitter that the English version of visual novel The House in Fata Morgana translates the word “tsundere” into “fragile male ego” (which is naturally not accurate in the slightest).

"... came out of crushed romantic dreams; Bella Abzug is only slightly more appealing — but largely because her pragmatism seems so sane in comparison with the antics of her fellows.... And what the series gets so right about left-wing identitarianism is how riddled it often is with jealousy, personal rivalry, and internal spats... The intersection, if you’ll forgive my using that word, of glamour and elite left-wing politics is pretty damning of both. The feminists completely underestimated Sch...

Biden promised to pick a woman VP, but because they are women, the possible choices are all under special pressure over the Tara Reade allegation against Biden.

This is the old backwards in high heels problem all over again!Or is it?This is the trouble with affirmative action. You get advanced to the front, but it comes with a catch. Biden wants a woman partner to help him out with woman things.

Since 1948, North Korea has been ruled by three men—the founder, his son, and his grandson—but, nevertheless, it is now conceivable that the fourth man will be a woman.

Fighting racism: This is the biggest mistake people make

Topics of race and racism are often uncomfortable, especially for the people of color being pressured to share sensitive and vulnerable information.While some people of color have chosen to educate others on what racism looks like and how to fight it, not all people of color should be expected to. Writer and consultant Robin DiAngelo argues that the onus is on white people to seek the information being offered, not to try and extract it.As a white person, DiAngelo acknowledges that her voice "ca...
