Feminism and Related Issues
What’s wrong with early marriage anyway?
Sociologist Mark Regnerus politely prods one of the sacred cows of population experts, most of whom fall into the zero population growth camp. Regnerus doesn’t go into the anti-natalist roots of the campaign against early marriage, although they certainly bear investigation; rather, he argues on biological, emotional and economic grounds for the benefits of early marriage.

In praise of patriarchs
We have a society in North America that is, thanks to the triumph of feminism, progressively shedding the masculine qualities that any society needs to survive. Women themselves are progressively "freed" from masculine protection at many levels; men, raised to be wimps, progressively abandon all sense of duty. Outwardly, the "superior sex" obtains a tyrannical power, but inwardly, their souls are stripped of the moderation, and imaginative empathy, that can come only from respectful interaction between the sexes.

Feminists Deny Truth on Domestic Violence
In the last three decades, feminism has revolutionized daily life from the legal system and social mores down to the story books children use in kindergarten. Feminist discussion seems to be 'always' and 'everywhere'. But I believe the contrary is true. Genuine discussion of feminist issues ended in the 1970s when one school came to dominate and moved to silence competing views both within the movement and outside. [ Not for young readers.]

Persistent Myths in Feminist Scholarship
All books have mistakes, so why pick on the feminists? My complaint with feminist research is not so much that the authors make mistakes; it is that the mistakes are impervious to reasoned criticism. They do not get corrected. The authors are passionately committed to the proposition that American women are oppressed and under siege. The scholars seize and hold on for dear life to any piece of data that appears to corroborate their dire worldview. At the same time, any critic who attempts to correct the false assumptions is dismissed as a backlasher and an anti-feminist crank.

Disney world ‘too heterosexual’ for children’s good
Many experts are concerned about the effects on children of their being immersed in electronic media from a tender age. They worry largely about the things they are not doing while watching TV or videos: developing their vocabulary through talking to their parents; listening to or reading books; going to the park for healthy exercise and social activities. But two sociologists have come up with a novel reason for fretting about kids’ exposure to media: the risk of seeing heterosexuality as normal and desirable.

Feminism has become just another special interest
Economists are already speaking of a “man-cession” with deep implications to the social fabric of society. It was not only market forces which brought this about. Organized feminist lobbyism played a major role here, manipulating president Obama’s stimulus plan, the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Originally his emulation of the 1930’s New Deal aimed to protect jobs in exactly those hardest-hit sectors by investing in “shovel ready” programs to modernize roads, bridges, electric grids and other infrastructure. [Note: We are absolutely not in favor of any government "stimulus" program -- i.e. robbing Peter to pay Mary -- but this article nevertheless demonstrates that feminists lobby for unequal treatment of men, even when it is obvious that men are the ones being hurt the most by the weak economy.]

The Feminist Way of Interviewing
The first rule of feminism is that males and females are identical in all respects except when it advantages females to be treated differently. As Christina Hoff Sommers, author  of Who Stole Feminism?, a searing critique of "gender feminism," says, the idea is that "men and women are the same, only women are better."

Too Many (Other) People
As a left-leaning Rutgers law professor in the early 1970s, Ruth Bader Ginsburg thought that the Roe v. Wade abortion decision was the product of "concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations we don’t want too many of," she recalled in a recent New York Times Magazine interview. Ginsburg doesn’t specify which parts of the human population "we" should cull, or how the creation of an abortion "right" would necessarily be a prelude to creation of a system in which abortion would be required in some circumstances.

Italy Passes Resolution Condemning Abortion for Population Control
Abortion as a form of demographic control takes many forms in the world. In countries promoting a one-child policy such as China, an estimated 100 million children have been aborted just for being female. In others, women are promised aid in return for aborting children.

The Death of a Doctor
But Dr. Tiller was also a husband, a father of four, and a grandfather of ten. He was a human being, created in God's image. Under God's law, and under the law of our land, no matter what Dr. Tiller's crimes were (and they were many), vigilante justice--in lieu of a trial, a judge, and a jury--is a grievous, ungodly measure to take against any atrocity.

Why does happiness elude modern women?
Over the last four decades, American women have got almost everything the feminist movement promised. Lucky us! Are we happy now? No, we are not. All across the industrialized world, wherever egalitarian feminism has sprinkled its fairy dust, women report that they are considerably less happy and satisfied with life then were their benighted, patriarchy-oppressed, apron-wearing sisters of yore.

Liberated and Unhappy
In the 1960s, when Betty Friedan diagnosed her fellow wives and daughters as the victims of “the problem with no name,” American women reported themselves happier, on average, than did men. Today, that gender gap has reversed. Male happiness has inched up, and female happiness has dropped. In postfeminist America, men are happier than women.

Feminist pioneer’s rethink: ‘a woman’s place is in the home’
She is one of feminism's pioneers and founder of the UK's first refuge for victims of domestic violence, but after decades of fighting for women's rights Erin Pizzey has come to a startling conclusion: women should stay at home and look after the children while men go out to work. Her revelations don't stop there. Pizzey also believes that with mothers away from home working, their child's development will be harmed. Her views are supported by new research conducted by Birbeck College in London, which suggests that the longer children are in childcare, as opposed to with parents, the more aggressive they become. "I think the traditional way the family was run has been going for thousands of years and it works. What I see now is men disenfranchised from their roles. Women are lost because they now have to work full-time. They don't have a choice. There is no proper child care, there's nobody home when the children come home." [Here's number three this week -- articles by feminists and others who are coming around full circle to the biblical family model.]
