Sexism, the weirdness

Okay, most aspects of sexism make sense to me.  I don't agree with professional sexist bloviators, but I get it.  I get why they come up with facetious arguments claiming that women don't actually get paid less (ignore those statistics!), or why they blame rape victims, or why they want…

Occam’s Razor sez that it’s because men come first

M. LeBlanc at Bitch Ph.D. wrote an excellent polemic against women changing their name when they marry. I realize that “the personal is political” is phrase that meant that we should see how the political influences personal power dynamics—that things that shape women’s lives are patriarchal and social, not just…

How to spike your results

Prepare to see this study used as evidence in the mainstream media that a) men are dogs b) women are ring-hungry harpies and c) both these things are instinct and socialization has no bearing on it. The study is actually pretty mundane. Researchers discovered that while both college-aged men and…

Battle of the dueling interpretations!

Okay, the title oversells this a little bit, but I still found this amusing. The NY Times, as part of the ongoing “who the fuck taught women to read?!” project they’ve been running, ran a concern trolling article about how more women are going to college and OMG THEY CAN’T…

Why are women (slightly more) religious?

Are women more likely to be stupid/gullible? That seems to be the assumption that the ungenerous of us might make when considering the 7% gap between men and women when it comes to religious affiliation. 81% of men and 88% of women have a religious affiliation of some sort, women…

The before/after pictures fill one with an ineffable longing

Lisa and Samhita found the existence of this business irritating, but I have to admit, it caused me to crack a smile. The idea is simple—you call this business when you have wife duties that you can’t get to right now. I suppose it should bother me, because the implication…

Yes, this was published in a major newspaper in the year 2009

Thanks to reader Catherine for waking me up with a reminder that, as we all suspected he would, Douche-hat is going to give into the urge to use his NY Times column to hump his favorite theme, which is that women are a sick, weird subspecies of human that, while…

When in doubt, look for a reason to blame the ladies

In terms of fake science, this article about how frivolous, stupid women can’t be expected to rein in their spending during a recession may be hitting a new low. There is no sourcing that I can see for this claim: This may come as little surprise to most people: In…

Freepers debate whether women should be able to vote

The knuckle-dragging fantasist misogynists at the Free Republic got a hard on after reading the article “Women’s Right to Vote, the Beginning of the End for America?” The premise of the piece, as the title suggests, is that once women were able to vote, it ushered in decision-making based on…

Double the risk doesn’t mean double the return

Sarah at Broadsheet links this article from The Frisky that proposes that women should make men say, “I love you” first when dating them. It’s kind of funny, because Sarah is obviously annoyed at the article for its dripping sexism, but she also thinks there’s a little there there, and…
