Nobody, not even conservatives, wants “conservative” versions of things

Conservatives aren’t satisfied with just conversing with other conservatives, as they shouldn’t be. There is no point of discussing anything, especially politics, if everyone hearing what you have to say agrees with you.

The U.K. bans gender stereotypes in advertising—it’s a basic bitch move

The U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has produced a report putting its new guidelines against gender-stereotypical imagery into effect. It’s reductive, tacky, and thoughtless. In short, it’s a basic bitch move.

I sucked at dodgeball and I’m not oppressed

Not everything has to be a tool of oppression. Things can just suck. Or be hard. But in 2019 we have to look at any inconvenience and then blame on the lack of global social justice.

An activist journalist tried to take down Quillette; it backfired

This story is about a lie. A lie about Eoin Lenihan that was told and promoted without any regard for truth that was very much within reach. Eoin Lenihan is not a “far right” keyboard warrior, as CJR is advertising. He has dedicated much of his life to quite the opposite.

A feminist gave a speech about male violence and was attacked by a biological male right after

Radical feminist activist Julie Bindel was attacked after giving a speech at Edinburgh University. The speech was about “male violence toward women and girls,” so it was somewhat absurd that her point was made upon her leaving the venue.

Don’t buy the media’s “far-right” scare tactics

As the culture continues to rapidly descend into a mournful state and we collectively lose our minds, we have developed a high tolerance for idiocy.

Global News runs misleading headline suggesting Canadians don’t support freedom of speech online

Canadians are vehemently opposed to online censorship, especially if it is mandated by the government. Canadians support the values of liberty, freedom of expression, and freedom of speech, and any attempt to curb those values is inherently un-Canadian.

No Purple Hearts for soldiers in the culture wars

From week to week, the culture wars rage on. None of it is materially real, but a lot of it has real life consequences. However, it’s important to be wary of people who seek Purple Hearts for fighting in the culture wars.

David Letterman to Kanye West: “you don’t have a say in this”

It’s not about Trump or political ideology. It’s about freedom of expression and freedom of creativity. Kanye is doing what all good artists do—he’s pushing boundaries. All of us would benefit from being more like Kanye. Perhaps then we wouldn’t be so scared to say what we truly feel.

Remembering freedom: a tribute to George Jonas

George Jonas, 1935-2016, was arguably Canada’s greatest polymath. Fittingly, for his great insights towards making ours a better country he was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2013.

Applied postmodernism for dummies

What was the reason the Gay vs. Hoff Sommers debate went so poorly? To understand why, I needed to look into the ideology held by gender scholars and critical race theorists on a much deeper level.
