I must admit, when I first heard of Sophie A. Lewis, I thought she was a cleaver hoax invented by a conservative blogger designed to show us just how vacuous a feminist philosopher can be. Ms. Lewis has been described as feminist uterine geography theorist and cyborg ecologist. Please!
A newly minted Ph.D, educated in England, now living in Philadelphia, her academic interests include cyborg theory, Marxist feminism, queer environmental humanities and social reproduction i.e. abortion and paid surrogacy. She refers to a woman with child as a “gestator.” Though one is hard-pressed to make sense of her literary ramblings in a variety of publicans, The New York Times took her seriously enough to allow a recent op-ed on British feminists who are hostile to transgenders taking over their space.

It’s her latest tirade against efforts to limit abortions in this country that takes this debate where few politicians are willing to go

This is the week where real feminists separate from their radical counterparts. For the uninformed, March 8, is officially International Women’s Day, but it is the catalyst for weeklong events held throughout this country and around the world. Sounds harmless, if not downright inspiring to many unsuspecting women and girls who want to celebrate the right to be all that they can be. Unfortunately, it comes with a lot of baggage you may not want for your daughter or yourself.https://www.americanprogress.org/events/2019/02/26/466672/international-womens-day/
This annual event was begun in 1909 in New York by the Socialist Party of America. In 1917, it became a national holiday in Russia and was primarily celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until 1975 when it was embraced by the United Nations.

“If it bleeds it leads” is an axiom of television news. Therefore, if one regularly watches the nightly newscasts, you come away feeling that our country is going to hell in the proverbial handbasket. This is particularly true of the cable news channels which are filled with shootings, car chases and stories of racism, sexism, violence and hate-filled rants directed at our president, our elected representatives and anyone with whom the host or network happens to disagree.
Facts don’t seem to matter. Even the major networks often run stories without verification. Sadly, many get their news from opinion shows where the participants hurl outrageous charges that have no basis in fact.
This emotionally-charged rhetoric has turned neighbor against neighbor. Some family members are no longer speaking simply because they aren’t on the same page politically. How does one keep one’s head in this deeply divided country? Continue reading “How to Stay Happy in a Deeply Divided Country”
This is the week that Christians prepare themselves to commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection. By far, it is the most important event on the Christian calendar. Without Christ’s sacrifice, there would be no forgiveness of sin and without His resurrection there would be no hope of eternal life.
While, mere ritual and religious observance are useless, it is important that we fully understand and remember the price that was paid for us and why? It is also a time, for a serious reality check. Continue reading “Easter Reality Check (The Gods that Tempt Us(“
Disney’s long-awaited live-action remake of the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” broke records on its opening weekend despite the news that, for the first time, the studio is featuring an openly gay character in a film aimed at children.
Disney has been promoting the gay agenda for some time but never crossed this all-important line. It’s executives have reason to celebrate. Despite this controversial content that flies in the face of Biblical morality, the film broke the record for best March opening, Best PG rated all-time opening, and scored the 7th biggest launch of all time for any movie. It pulled in $174.8 million in the U.S. where 70.6 percent of our population identify as Christians and another 1.4 percent adhered to Judaism.
Both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible condemn homosexuality in the strongest terms, as do all the major religions. However, only one theater in the United States, a drive-in in DeKalb County, Alabama, refused to show the movie. Continue reading “The Culture vs Biblical Morality (Culture Wins at Least for Now)”
I was having brunch with some new, very accomplished, female friends when the subject of the presidential race came up. One of these friends announced that she was a Democrat because she believes in equality.
Women now control 51 percent of all wealth in the U.S. They hold 52 percent of management and professional positions. They earn more degrees of higher learning and own 30 percent of all private businesses. Still, one of the key myths promoted every election cycle is the wag gap. It’s the political unicorn used to persuade millions of women that they are victims of inequality and they need Democrats like Hillary Clinton to save them. Like the legendary horse from classical antiquity, it doesn’t exist. Continue reading “Hillary Clinton Hypocrisy on the Wage Gap (The Democrats Political Unicorn)”
With President Obama as welcome on the campaign trail as brownies at a meeting of Weight Watchers, and his policies as popular as Bach at a bowling alley, Democrats can be forgiven for rolling out the old “war on women” thing. After all, it’s their ace in the hole, a proven winner when it comes to stirring up the electorate and getting out the vote.
“Those mean old Republicans want to take away your birth control, keep your wages below that of your male counterparts,” and did I hear, “deny your right to vote”? Surely that must be in there somewhere.
Can’t blame them because they have been sewing these bad seeds for so long, it’s little wonder they are hoping that some still will bear fruit.
You really can’t blame women for falling for this gambit. It’s not that women are dumb or that few take the time to research these charges that are thrown about like so much confetti before every election. It’s just that most women are simply doing their best to survive in what is fast becoming a socialist, feminist utopia.

On Friday, my seven-year-old granddaughter came home from school with a long face. “Grandmother,” she said, “is there any way a kid like me could talk to someone who could get the president to change a law?”
“The president can’t change laws, honey,” I replied. “Only Congress can do that.”
“Well, who could I talk to about changing a bad law?”
“What law is that?” I enquired.
“The one that won’t let kids vote for president.”
“If you could vote, how would you go about deciding who would make the best president?” I asked. Continue reading “A Seven-Year-Old Looks at the Office of President”
One of the biggest mistakes of President Ronald Reagan was his failure to deliver on a promise to abolish the federal Department of Education.
When you hear someone mention that today, he or she is regarded as a complete nincompoop, who has little regard for children.
Most people don’t remember life before the federal Department of Education. It was created in 1979 by Jimmy Carter and we did quite well without it. Continue reading “The “Core” Problem in Education”
There is a reason that the Boy Scouts of America have not partnered with the Girl Scouts USA. The two organizations would appear to be natural affiliates but at their core, they are now miles apart. That may be about to change.
The issue that has divided them are the principles on which the two organizations were founded: A belief in God and a pledge to abide by the moral truths that are revealed in His Word.
- In the 70’s, the Girl Scouts put feminist icon Betty Friedan on its national governing board. It wasn’t long before the Girl Scouts began purging its materials of all positive references to homemakers.
- In 1980, the organizations changed its policy on homosexuality and welcomed lesbians as scouts and troop leaders.
- In 1993, the Girl Scouts took aim at the Creator himself, making God an option by inserting an asterisk by the word “God” in the Promise.
Due to public outrage and loss of enrollment, that asterisk was removed from the latest Girl Scout Handbook. Don’t be fooled. Instead, girls are simply being instructed that when reciting the Promise they are “free to substitute their own wording for God’” http://www.girlscoutshs.org/sensitiveissuesfaqs. In other words, a girl is free to pledge to do her duty to herself as any good atheist would. Continue reading “Boy Scouts follow Girl Scouts Downhill (Last of a Three-Part Series)”
