I give Jessica Valenti's marriage 1 more year

Oz Conservative had this very entertaining article that indicates (IMHO) that Jessica Valenti is about to divorce her husband (whomever that is - I think he maybe an tech-savvy guy though).

When did a 19 yo know anything?

This is a shocking story (sorry - I guess I lead a shelter life) - so I leave it to The Other McCain to explain.   But I think he has a point.   If you are not ashamed of being a Porn Star - and in interviews you proclaim how empowering it is - why then Belle do you insist on keeping your identity hidden?

In another post at The Other McCain - was this similarly inspired piece about how Slutwalk is really all about Lesbian Feminism.

All in all - I am impressed with the blog.

Time for Bill.

Unbroken

Looks like a good movie.

7% of legal abortions in Canada result in serious complications

Is that better than coat-hangers?

Porn is actually not addictive?

There is no "proof".
Porn addiction is arguably the diagnosis of our time. The idea has thrived in a time of anxiety about the proliferation of free, ever-intensifying adult material — and how it might be changing our relationships, our sex lives and our (zombie voice) braaains. The addiction concept shows up in Hollywood movies, celebrity cheating scandals — even news articles. But a new study suggests there is no evidence that it actually exists.

Family Breakdown and Child Sexual Abuse

The New Silence: Family Breakdown and Child Sexual Abuse
Jeremy Sammut

Decades of social science research has shown that children, on average, do better in life on measures of health, education and social outcomes when raised in two-parent married families. The risks to children associated with family breakdown disprove the fashionable idea that marriage, divorce and sole parenting don’t matter for children.
  • Step- and single-parent families accounted for only one-third (33%) of all children in the United States but accounted for more than two-thirds (66.8%) of all children who were sexually abused.

Pussy-whipped POTUS repeats "Gender-lie"

For C*&$t's sake - he said it again!  WTF is wrong with this pussy-whipped POTUS?
Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. She deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her job. A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship – and you know what, a father does, too. It’s time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a “Mad Men” episode. This year, let’s all come together – Congress, the White House, and businesses from Wall Street to Main Street – to give every woman the opportunity she deserves. Because I firmly believe when women succeed, America succeeds.
Now, women hold a majority of lower-wage jobs – but they’re not the only ones stifled by stagnant wages. Americans understand that some people will earn more than others, and we don’t resent those who, by virtue of their efforts, achieve incredible success. But Americans overwhelmingly agree that no one who works full time should ever have to raise a family in poverty.
Luckily, Christina Hoff-Sommers comes to the rescue.
No, Women Don’t Make Less Money Than Men
It’s the bogus statistic that won’t die—and president deployed it during the State of the Union—but women do not make 77 cents to every dollar a man earns. 

(Don't mean to diss Obama unfairly - but Bill Whittle has a good point.)
