Stirring Up Feminazis

FeminaziWhat’s the difference between being powerful and merely feeling powerful?

Too often people chase the feeling and give up the real thing.

I sense the phenomenon when frat boys try to feel powerful by intimidating women.

Or when feminists are called “feminazis.”  Read the rest of this entry

Male privilege

Male privilege

By Jonathan Castellanos

I’ve often thought how nice it must be to be white.

Popular, attractive, upper class: these are words I’ve come to associate with whiteness.

But until recently I hadn’t given much thought to privileges I gain from being male. Read the rest of this entry

Nurturing dad.

Nurturing dad.

Girls are naturally more nurturing than boys, right?

A lot of people think so.

Some scientists think it’s because testosterone blocks male nurturing instincts.

Is a C Cup Too Small??? !

cup sizeI read somewhere that most women who want breast augmentation ask for a C cup. But an awful lot of surgeons convince them to get D’s. Or the doctors simply give them a bigger size than they had asked for.

Denise Richards, actress, model and one of Charlie Sheen’s ex’s, said that when she was 19 years old a doctor put in bigger implants than she’d asked for.

And then the furor. Everyone talking about Ashley’s face.

So she responded in the Daily Beast. A few lines: Read the rest of this entry

Wonderful Life or Pottersville? You Choose

It's a wonderful life when the community comes together.

It’s a wonderful life when the community comes together.

While indulging my yearly Yuletide ritual — enjoying “It’s A Wonderful Life” — something odd happened:

Mr. Potter’s face morphed into an amalgam of Charles and David Koch.

The Koch brothers are prone to giving huge campaign contributions in return for dismantling the government. AKA legal bribery.

Instead of the community coming together for the good of all, the billionaire Koch Brothers only want to increase their wealth. (Like they need more money!) Read the rest of this entry
