Thought Police Sic Liberal Lynch Mob on Peloton

Advertising goes out of its way to be politically correct, often to the point of inducing nausea. Even so, some falls afoul of the thought police, evoking the rage of the liberal Twitter mob. For example, Peloton — maker of exercise equipment — dared suggest that women might feel good about getting in shape, even possibly implying that this would please their husbands.

AdAge reporter Adrianne Pasquarelli tsk-tsks:

The spot, called “The Gift that Gives Back,” continued to air Tuesday evening … even as criticism grew.

The ad, about a woman whose husband gifts her an apparent life-changing exercise bike, sparked a gender backlash that clearly clashed with any seasonal cheer the brand was expecting.

“Consumer psychologist” Kit Yarrow was brought in to condemn the spot as “a complete male fantasy ad.”

“Many consumers” complained that the wife was fit enough and did not need to get fitter. They denounced the husband for wanting her to be in shape, as if the only purpose of physical fitness were to become more sexually attractive, which is bad because lookism.

Some analysts expect the ad to be pulled as the backlash grows. … The controversy surrounding the ad drew coverage from a wide range of mainstream news and entertainment sites, including NPR, CNN, CBS and People. … Peloton’s stock was down 10 percent, a steep drop for the company, which only began trading publicly in September.

Watch the ad for yourself, and see how little it takes to stoke the thought police to full fury:

Corporate America is advised to stick to selling cat food to aging lesbians. Anything else will lead to trouble with feminists.

Feminists Side With Foreign Rapists Against Their Victims

The progressive pecking order produces surprising sympathies. Who do you think feminists would side with in a conflict, women who are raped or the welfare colonists swamping Europe? The answer is the latter, as was recently confirmed in Paris.

Via Summit News:

A group of young women highlighting a government study which showed 52 per cent of Parisian rape suspects were foreign nationals were attacked and labeled “fascists” by feminists during a protest in Paris.

The feminazis resorted to physical intimidation to keep these women in their place.

The feminists assaulted the women, stole their signs, ripped them up and then chanted, “Feminists, not fascists” and “fascists out,” as the young women were physically intimidated and forced to leave.

Too bad this guy wasn’t at hand to help out.

This is consistent with the feminist stance regarding Third Worlders sexually assaulting European women, as we saw after Colognization began to unfold.

The incident served as a reminder of what happened in Cologne after the mass molestation and rape of around 1200 women on New Year’s Eve 2015, predominantly by men of “Arab or North African appearance,” which feminists responded to by subsequently visiting the local migrant center and handing out flowers to migrants while apologizing for “xenophobia.”

To comply with liberal ideology, women need to know their place in the hierarchy and submit to their fate. As noted earlier, if progressives thought of rape as a serious problem, they would not be so adamantly opposed to women exercising their fundamental right to bear arms.

Day Without Men

Remember the 2017 “Day Without Immigrants” protests, whereby foreigners refused to work in protest against even half-hearted attempts to defend American sovereignty? Other than temporarily closing a few restaurants and costing a few dozen fools their jobs, the protests did not accomplish much. But a Day Without Men in protest against the feminist BS we are force-fed incessantly would bring everything to a jarring halt.

JudgyBitch helpfully explains why men are “privileged”:

For the most part, women just aren’t that interested in doing the unglamorous grunt work that keeps the world turning. Social engineering through gender-based Affirmative Action policies has failed to change this.

Feminists say that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. How much does anyone need a feminist?

Terminator: Dark Fate Suffers Dark Fate of Politicization

To judge from this review of Terminator: Dark Fate, what progressive social engineers have done to the formerly entertaining Terminator franchise is emblematic of what they are doing to American culture in general. It appears that the latest installment is a Ghostbusters-style all-female reboot of the series that will fall flat for anyone but devoted social justice warriors.

The very fiber of this film comes off as someone who is ashamed that the foundation of this franchise does not fit their current day intersectional feminist worldview, so they decided to change it by repealing and replacing everything they felt was problematic with more progressive friendly elements.

For example, primary protagonist John Connor is killed off a few minutes into the movie so that he can be replaced by Dani Ramos.

Because in the world of intersectionality, the only thing they see is a white male action star who just doesn’t fit the bill of the modern Hollywood diversity and inclusion agenda so he must be replaced. If you thought it was bad enough that they made John a villain in the last movie, the progressive Gods decided it was time for him to die thus rendering the plot of multiple films completely and utterly useless. At no point does anyone stop and understand that John Connor is the glue that keeps this entire franchise together. The character who both Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese sacrificed life and love for in the only two movies that are worth a damn because he symbolized humanity, leadership, and hope.

But now he represents what all white males represent to Hollyweird — i.e., all things bad. Evidently his replacement Dani is not only a Woman of Color but also an illegal alien. Stand by for the next sequel, where she is replaced in turn by a transgender Muslim.

Since Tinseltown is out of ideas, it has settled on a strategy of politically correct remakes of the movies produced in more creative times. Woke reviewers will praise the trash to prove they are not sexist/racist/blah blah blah.

Every impactful scene is an unoriginal retelling of an event that has already taken place in a prior movie that did it far better. The endgame of Dark Fate is to hand the movie over to progressive women so that they can be given something that they could never achieve on their own merits…a successful franchise.

As in economics, so in culture. Progressives cannot create wealth. They can only dissipate or destroy it.

Feminist Meghan Murphy, Thought Criminal

The Palmerston branch of the Toronto Public Library was set upon by hundreds of enraged moonbats Tuesday night for allowing Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy to speak there:

Although the venue was rented to a third-party group called Radical Feminists Unite, and drew a sell-out crowd, the library has come under sustained criticism for weeks, including from the city’s mayor, for giving Ms Murphy a platform.

Librarian Vickery Bowles says that Murphy has not been charged with hate speech. She will be, if she doesn’t lay off the thoughtcrime.

“If you’re born male, you remain male for life,” said Ms Murphy, who has argued that transgender rights undermine those of women and girls by compromising their “safe spaces” such as public toilets, changing rooms and women’s refuges.

All of this is not only true but obvious, but off limits to express. That’s why attendees left the event under a hail of boos, escorted by the police.

Murphy, who runs the Feminist Current blog, was banned from Twitter last year after tweeting: “Men aren’t women”.

Clinical insanity isn’t just a fashionable option anymore. It is becoming mandatory.

Permitting speech to someone inflammatory enough to insist that men aren’t women will have consequences for the library.

A number of authors have severed ties with the institution. Pride Toronto, which organises the city’s annual gay pride festival, warned the library of “consequences to our relationship for this betrayal”.

That sounds ominous. As inevitable battles escalate between the fractions of the Coalition of the Allegedly Oppressed, smart institutions will get on the winning side by aligning with whomever ranks higher on the Cultural Marxist totem pole. Women clearly rank below transsexuals, as demonstrated by the successful subordination of women’s sports to the transsexual agenda.

P&G Sides With Trans Militants Against Biology

Unless someone starts pushing back against their relentless bullying, every last corner of civilization will be deformed so as to comply with the tyrannical demands of the tiny minority of mentally ill individuals who “identify” as members of the opposite sex. This pushback will never come from moonbattery-addled corporate America, and certainly not from Procter & Gamble, which is infamous for its ostentatious PC posturing (e.g., pushing black oppression balderdash, denouncing “toxic” masculinity, and celebrating morbid obesity and transsexual freakification). Eagerly folding to LGBT militants, P&G now submits to the progressive dictum that it isn’t only women who get periods.

Via Daily Mail:

The maker of Always sanitary pads has given in to claims of discrimination by transgender men and removed the ‘Venus’ symbol of the female sex from the wrapping.

Outraged women are now boycotting the leading brand after the decision by makers Procter & Gamble (P&G) to kowtow to trans activists who were born female and still use sanitary products.

Feminists have begun to realize that the only people undermining women are from other factions within their own Cultural Marxist coalition. I don’t see them pushing back against Islam, but at least they acknowledge the hostility of the transsexual corps.

Proclaims feminist Julie Bindel:

“We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology.”

Biology is a thought crime, according to LGBT dogma.

Continues Bindel:

“The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.”

With luck, P&G will continue to lose money by pandering to moonbats.

Today Is National Period Day

If you have a cocktail today, make it a Bloody Mary. Raise it in a toast to National Period Day, celebrated so as to bring attention to “period poverty.”

Via Breitbart:

Activists behind National Period Day say that “period poverty” is an issue plaguing the country. They assess that “1 in 4 women struggle to afford period products due to a lack of income.” They also believe “period stigma” is making menstruation a “taboo topic,” despite the emergence of the Women’s March movement, which resulted in Ashley Judd’s infamous “Nasty Woman” speech in the nation’s capital in 2017.

Here’s what Ashley Judd chooses to discuss when she has a large audience:

“I am nasty like my bloodstains on my bed sheets. We do not actually choose if and when we had our periods. We do not like throwing away our favorite pairs of underpants.”

In Ashley’s case, I’m picturing a pair printed all over with Minnie Mouse faces.

Her tirade on menstruation was presented as evidence that women are oppressed. Maybe Ashley will seize on today’s occasion to further delve into the details of her personal hygiene.

Activists are pushing rallies across all 50 states in hopes of “demanding real change to making period products more accessible for all and ending the #TamponTax.”

Finally, moonbats have discovered a tax they don’t like. It’s because men don’t have to pay it.

“If faces were bleeding, someone would do something,” the PERIOD Movement tweeted alongside a video of people — including men — with bloody noses.

Democrats literally believe that the federal government can prevent the climate from fluctuating. Putting an end to women having periods should require only a moderate tax increase by comparison.

The Menstrual Movement coalition has produced a manifesto, which states the following (all caps in original):

Simply put — MENSTRUAL HYGIENE IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE.

This implies that it is one person’s “right” to force another person to pay for it. Apparently, making tampons tax-free is only a step toward making them free, period (no pun intended).

The hijab in the video below adds a nice intersectional touch, allowing them to celebrate feminism and Islam at the same time (they must agree that Islam is right about women):

New York Times Denounces the Pootriarchy

The New York Times has been circling the drain for some time. Now it has taken the final plunge down the toilet. It followed up publishing obscene and obviously scurrilous allegations in a despicable attempt to smear Brett Kavanaugh with this denunciation of the “pootriarchy”:

The article was written not by sniggering schoolboys but by a pair of female social justice warriors who reveal that the sexist oppression of women includes a previously unrecognized injustice the Slimes calls “poop shame.” From the article:

Poop shame is real — and it disproportionately affects women, who suffer from higher rates of irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. In other words, the patriarchy has seeped into women’s intestinal tracts. Let’s call it the pootriarchy.

The piece goes on to discuss flatulence in the context of patriarchal oppression. It concludes by calling on women to stop being modest about the smells and sounds associated with defecation.

People actually get paid to write this stuff for the Paper of Record.

Boys Lost in a Postmasculine World

A postmasculine world of moonbattery is no place for boys. They are treated by the system as defective girls. As Dave Morrison puts it, “Masculinity has gone from an admired trait to a pathology in need of treatment and eventual eradication.”

Feminism and the welfare state have robbed boys of the role models and attention they need to develop in a healthy way. This has produced lonely screwed up men, transsexuals, moonbats, maniacs, and any number of ticking timebombs.

Sooner or later, society will need men again badly. With luck it will happen while we still have a few.

Almas Veganas Combines Animal Rights With #MeToo Mania

Intersectional moonbattery has produced the merger of animal rights lunacy with #MeToo mania. The moonbats of Almas Veganas (Vegan Souls) of Girona, Spain identify as antispeciesist and transfeminist. They have achieved their 15 seconds of fame with a video that shows them smashing chicken eggs because the unformed chicks within were conceived without the consent of the hen.

According to the Daily Mail, the vegans separate male from female chickens because they “don’t want the hens to be raped.”

As antispeciesists, they believe that all species should be treated the same. Therefore, any hanky-panky between chickens must be preceded by explicit consent, as with people.

They have figured out that their measures will prevent the chickens from reproducing, but this is a good thing, because the hens “are genetically modified to make them lay more eggs.” Better there should be no chickens than there be genetically modified chickens who are oppressed by the chicken patriarchy.

A stern reminder from Almas Veganas:

“Either you are vegan or you help to finance animal slavery. Eating animals is fascist.”

When in doubt as to whether something is fascist, just ask yourself if the farthest left lunatic imaginable would embrace it enthusiastically. If the answer is no, then it is or will soon become fascist.

Almas Veganas smashes the chicken patriarchy.

Army Stonewalls on Female Rangers

Imposing the demented leftist dictum that there is no difference between men and women will have the same effect on the military as on engineering. As a Congressman, Steve Russell (R-OK), a Ranger School graduate, tried to find out how badly standards are being degraded so as to produce female Rangers for purposes of political correctness. The Army stonewalled him:

[Russell sent a letter that] asked the Army to provide all internal Ranger School documents related to the female candidates’ training and assessment, including “test scores, evaluations, injuries, pre-training and more.”

Russell had spoken to several [Ranger Instructors] who told him one story—that standards had been lowered and senior Ranger Training Brigade officials had unduly influenced the outcome of the course—while the Army was telling him another—that everything was the same as always. “The training of our combat warriors is paramount to our national defense,” Russell wrote to Secretary of the Army John McHugh. “In order to ensure that the Army retains its ability to defend the nation, we must ensure that our readiness is not sacrificed.” …

McHugh’s office responded to Russell’s letter one day before the due date and asked for additional time to complete his request. Nine days after that, Army officials informed Russell that nearly all of the training records (including, presumably, the observation report reproduced above) had been destroyed.

This calls to mind Hillary illegally destroying documents that had been subpoenaed by Congress. It’s not something you do unless you have a great deal to hide.

Men Overwhelmingly Discriminated Against in Scholarships

No wonder it has become so fashionable for men to pretend they are women. Victims of the sexist patriarchy have definite advantages — in scholarships, for example.

From College Fix:

A review of more than 200 American colleges and universities reveals that they favor women over men by a wide margin in sex-specific scholarships.

The disparity (to use a word moonbats normally love) was uncovered in a study by Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE).

Prizes for the most feministically woke allocation of scholarships go to University of Phoenix and Auburn University, with female:male disparities of 106:2 and 67:1, respectively.

Title IX explicitly forbids this kind of discrimination…

The study found “widespread discriminatory practices” against men: 57 percent of reviewed colleges “facially violate” Title IX with their array of scholarships (a difference of five or more between the sexes), while 27 percent are “borderline” (2-4) and 16 are “non-discriminatory” (0-1).

However, officially acknowledged discrimination generally only works one way, in accordance with the dictates of our national religion, Cultural Marxism.

There are other perks to belonging to the allegedly oppressed gender:

SAVE said more than two dozen schools are already under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education for limiting programs to women, such as women-only engineering, science and technology programs.

Despite all the attention it receives on college campuses, white privilege is a fantasy. In contrast, female privilege is quite real.

Bearded Ladies Infest Paleontology

Moonbattery has reduced academia to a freak show, complete with bearded ladies. From Campus Reform:

Female paleontologists, including some from the University of California, Berkeley, are wearing fake beards to highlight alleged gender bias in their field.

“Gender bias” means either that feminists are still able to dream up demands that have not yet been met, or that even if they can’t, they feel oppressed anyway.

The Bearded Lady Project tries to show that “you don’t have to be a man to love fieldwork and contribute to science,” according to a UC Berkeley news release.

You also don’t have to be a Berserkeley moonbat to make a fool of yourself. But it does help.

The bearded lady photo exhibit has been on display in many different places around the country. Fifteen UC Berkeley paleontologists are featured in the exhibit.

The Bearded Lady Project “will have accomplished its goal when white male stereotypes are banished.”

However, the stereotypes of college professors as kooks and feminists as irrational bullies remain largely unchallenged.

Milking Cows Equated With Sexual Abuse

The lunacy is never sated; the more it feeds on itself, the more ravenous it becomes. Now academia tells us that acquiring food by milking cows is literally the equivalent of sexual abuse:

Titled “Readying the Rape Rack: Feminism and the Exploitation of Non-Human Reproductive Systems,” the paper was published Friday in a journal called Dissenting Voices, which is published and edited by the Women’s and Gender Studies program at the College at Brockport State University of New York.

The published piece aims at discussing the “sexual exploitation of non-human bodies, specifically dairy cows.”

It will not be legal to sexually exploit cows by milking them when utopia has been achieved.

According to the publication, “the dairy industry is a host for sex-based discrimination,” and a “site where sexual assault and objectification based on biological makeup are highly prevalent but ignored as we choose to neglect non- humans with whom we share a planet.”

According to leftists, there is no meaningful difference between a cow and a human being. When PETA’s Ingrid Newkirk proclaimed that “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy,” she could have added, “is a cow.”

If it ever occurs to academics and animal rights militants that cows would hardly exist if we did not raise them for food, they will probably call for the welfare state to be expanded to finance cow preserves.

The paper argues that “in order to fully fight gendered oppression,” society must also address the plight of dairy cows, which it asserts are “still subjects to sex-based discrimination and violence,” despite their voices being “not always lifted or comprehensible.”

It isn’t easy to comprehend the voices of cows. Those guilty of clinging to an anthropocentric orientation may even believe that “Moo” doesn’t really mean anything in particular.

[A]uthor Mackenzie April, an intern for Brockport’s Women’s Studies Department, … hopes the publication will inspire feminists and other “social justice”-minded individuals to “incorporate non-human bodies into their own feminist perspectives.”

The #MooToo movement is born.

To a potentially disastrous extent, feminists have prevented us from reproducing. Now let’s see if they can prevent us from eating.
