Scott Brown and the Glass Ceiling

January 25, 2010


In the ultimate denial of last week’s victory for Scott Brown in Massachusetts, some liberals are attributing the outcome to bias against women.

The state has already had a female governor (briefly), female lieutenant governors, and four women in the House of Representatives. A woman is currently president of the state senate. But Massachusetts lingers in the dark ages, longstanding prejudice holding women politicians such as Martha Coakley back, according to this story in today’s New York Times. Katie Zezima writes: 

“Welcome to liberal Massachusetts — we’re not,” said Mary Anne Marsh, a Democratic political consultant. “And if you didn’t believe it before, anyone who thinks that Massachusetts is liberal in light of Tuesday’s results need only look at the record and lack of success women have had in Massachusetts politics. That should just put it away for good.”

Brown ran a “macho, testosterone campaign.” Hormones determined the election results.

“The World is Her Oyster”

January 25, 2010


Why are many middle-aged women today lonely, unhappy and childless? Because when they were young they were told they could have it all. Female fertility peaks in a woman’s twenties and her attractiveness to men does too, but they weren’t informed of these basic facts of nature.

Feminists continue to feed young women the myth that they can get married and have children whenever they want. Look at Sarah Palin’s words to her daughter Bristol on Oprah last week:

“I’m telling her, don’t think she has to find a man and marry young. The world is her oyster and she’s going to be able to pursue an education and career and avocation opportunities without a man.”

Some people have said that Mrs. Palin had her own children young because she saw through feminism and believed a woman’s commitment is to her family first. But this obviously is not the case. Here she is advising a daughter who already has a child to not form a family of her own right away or feel any need to get married young. When even supposed conservatives are stating these falsehoods, it is likely that the loneliness and unhappiness of the modern woman will continue to be nourished for many years to come.

Did Feminists Discover Sex?

January 25, 2010



One of the great conceits of feminists is that they introduced female sexual pleasure to the world. Before the sex experts of the 1970s, human beings were entirely in the dark about female anatomy and the nature of womanly pleasure.

Feminists must maintain their claim over this discovery. It’s a subtle form of blackmail. Women are told they cannot possibly enjoy sex unless traditional sex roles are overturned. Read More »


Dr. B. on Romance

January 25, 2010



Do modern women seem to you either desperately unhappy or manically triumphant? Do they seem to be hopeless or filled with the most unreal of hopes? Perhaps we need look no further for light on these strange contradictions than Dr. Laura Berman, the famous expert on female sexual health. Dr. Berman, who proves that wearing a white lab coat gives almost any statement an air of authority, openly advises women to have sex. She advises them to have sex with themselves:

Exploring your body alone allows you to discover new sensations and retrains your mind to focus on pleasure rather than self-conscious or self-defeating thoughts. Masturbation is the best way to reach orgasm for a lot of women, not just those who struggle with orgasm ability. This may also be something to discuss with a therapist, if you’re not comfortable going through it on your own. If you are, check out Betty Dodson’s book on the subject, Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving. Though it may take some work, the odds are that you’re capable of having the orgasms you want.

Some people sincerely believe the sexual revolution has led to more pleasure overall for women. I disagree. A woman living in the lonely chamber of  “self-pleasuring” is not enacting her deepest dreams. It used to be promiscuity was sinful in a woman. Now sexual reticence is.
