Welcome to the gender wars. Welcome to the punch bowl that sublimates your penis and turns it into a vagina. I have no idea what that sentence even means but if I stuck it in a paper and sent it into a peer reviewed journal then I reckon that I’d be on to a winner, maties. Ooh, what a life I’d have then. Jetting around the world, delivering my papers to rapt audiences of faceless automatons, as I mercilessly laid waste to my own fellow men just for the privilege of living a short life of luxury while feeding the jealousy that seethed inside me because of my bitter hatred of strong and masculine men due to my own shortcomings and inadequacies.

There’s nothing like screwing up millions of boys and in the process igniting a full scale gender war. Has there ever been a gender war such as this in the history of humanity? Or in other words, has a greater civilization ever let their women folk ever get this far out of control on such a grand scale?

I think not. I think that we are in uncharted territory. And I think that if a war breaks out and we are suddenly invaded and our wymens turn to us men and cry, oh please protect us oh our mens! then I would put money on men collectively shrugging their shoulders, emitting a resounding meh, and letting the invaders do as they want. What is there to protect anyway? Our women are banshees and they have destroyed our sons. Maybe a clean sweep is in order. Oh I realise that us men get swept away too but them be the breaks if you live in Godless times.

Gender War from The Rational Male.

Going forward, all politics will be gender politics. The litmus test for all leadership will be about vaginas and penises. We’re already seeing this Genderwar rhetoric come to the surface in the incoming fresh-women class of this year’s congress. The only imperative they have is destroying masculinity and raising up female supremacism, and this imperative will be borne out by every word they speak and every policy they concern themselves with.

Why are women bent on war against men? Because women have destroyed themselves and they must vent on their rage on something or somebody.

What feminism does to women.

Believe all girls! They’re talented! and Brave! and never lie!

Miss Calloway is 27 now. She’s no longer the fresh-faced girl posting #adventuregram photos and spending Daddy’s money on an extended vacation “studying art history” in Cambridge. She’s got hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers but has yet to succeed in monetizing her “brand” because she’s unwilling to do any actual work.

Like, you land a $500,000 book contact — half a million dollars! — at age 24, and you can’t deliver the manuscript? Why? Because you were too busy “studying art history” and hanging out with Oscar? Or was it because you realized that your shallow life wasn’t really interesting enough to merit a “memoir”?

Trump grounds Pelosi.

He waited to send it until the group were on their way to the airport. Like a boss.

A couple of weeks ago I posted something along the lines of guys should look for work in an industry that has next to zero women. A few commenters took exception to this and claimed that such fields do not exist.

Behold.

I work in one of these. It’s great.

Nobel prize winner stripped of honorary titles due to comments on race and IQ.

A Nobel Prize-winning American scientist who co-discovered DNA has been stripped of his honorary titles at the laboratory he once led after repeating racist comments in a documentary.

James Watson, who discovered the double-helix structure of DNA alongside Francis Crick in the 1950s based on the work of British chemist Rosalind Franklin, said in a PBS film that genes cause a difference in intelligence between white and black people in IQ tests.

The 90-year-old’s comments were labeled “reprehensible” by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) on New York’s Long Island, where Watson had been the director from 1968 to 1993.

Objective truth is unacceptable. Moral truth is all that matters in the world of today. And the morality police change their minds very quickly indeed.

This week’s long read is about sunscreen and how it’s a giant con, might be bad for you, and you need sunlight on your body to be healthy.

Still, David Fisher at Mass General didn’t think that changed the equation. “There’s a pharmacopoeia of drugs that are extremely effective at lowering blood pressure,” he said. “So to draw the conclusion that people should expose themselves to an elevated skin-cancer risk, including potentially fatal cancer, when there are so many alternative treatments for hypertension, is problematic.”

It’s problematic not to put yourself in hock to the US pharma industry.

Why Trump’s shutdown could be his biggest play yet.

But President Trump can end this abuse. Senior officials can reprioritize during an extended shutdown, focus on valuable results and weed out the saboteurs. We do not want most employees to return, because we are working better without them. Sure, we empathize with families making tough financial decisions, like mine, and just like private citizens who have to find other work and bring competitive value every day, while paying more than a third of their salary in federal taxes.

President Trump has created more jobs in the private sector than the furloughed federal workforce. Now that we are shut down, not only are we identifying and eliminating much of the sabotage and waste, but we are finally working on the president’s agenda.

Four more days of the shutdown and government workers can be let go without reason due to them being on a 30 day furlough. Could this be his real move on draining the swamp? Please please please.
