The “Women’s Privilege Pledge?”:

Just What Part of Equal Protection Don’t You Understand?

(c) 2013, Davd

“Once upon a time, not so very long ago,” in many kingdoms by the sea, the landlocked Swiss Confederation1 (and after 1790, the Republics of France and the USA), men and women had different “spheres of life”. Women’s [...]

The December 6th Misrepresentation

Shame on Feminism, not on us

(c) 2012, Davd

It’s that time of year again: Some Feminists are refusing to set meetings and appointments for December 6th; and if last year and the previous 20 are any indication, we can expect a deplorable multiple murder to be [...]

The Princess Syndrome

 

(Why—and how?—to forestall it)

(c) 2012, Davd

Since i mentioned the Princess Syndrome in my last post, this is a handy time to write something about the syndrome itself, and its unrealism, here on Everyman. Though quite distinct from Feminism, and much older; the Princess [...]

An American Paradox?

(c) 2012, Davd

Some Better Reasons for a Sex Strike

(c) 2012, Davd

Recently, i was referred by some other website, to one called “The  No Access Sex Strike”. It seemed to me to be mimicking Lysistrata, but with less style and eloquence1.  Instead of wanting soldiers to stop fighting (and often killing) one another, the site’s operators seem to want the [...]

Feminism and the Oobleck

(c) 2012, Davd

Dr. Seuss wrote the best young-children’s stories of his time, i believe, because he wrote fables. His stories were not only entertaining and amusing—they were instructive and archetypal. Green Eggs and Ham was about prejudice—not mean-spirited or vicious prejudice even, just prejudice based in a vague distaste for the [...]

Mother’s Day 2012: What If We Stick to the Truth?

(c) 2012, Davd

Many of you have seen comedy of some sort—a short story, a play, a skit, a stand-up routine—whose main point is how impolite and disruptive it would be if everyone said nothing but the plain, blunt truth. The setting for such comedy could be a cop stopping [...]

Prudent Gynophobia

Acknowledging Intimidation Can Help to End It (c) 2012, Davd
