This is not your father’s sex discrimination case. The accusers in it are males and are claiming that their boss — a female — discriminated against them by (among other things) yelling “Penis! Penis! Penis!” during a business meeting.
New York’s Daily News reports that Nancy Silberkleit, the co-CEO of Archie Comics, is on the defensive after using “gender as a weapon,” according to papers filed in October in Westchester Supreme Court by five employees, including Archie president Mike Pellerito and Editor-in-Chief Victor Gorelick.
Just Joe being Joe…
The Vice President of the United States hasn’t even been in Japan more than 48 hours and he’s already found a way not only to insult Japanese women but women everywhere, as reported by the right-of-center news portal Breitbart.com on Dec. 3, 2013.
Bang your head. Complete with “prayer bump” from slamming their heads on the ground during prayer, Cairo police on patrol during the reign of Morsi.
“Standard Sharia Law punishment for adultery for a woman is slowly stoning her to death…”
On Nov. 28, India Today published a list compiled in Egypt of some of the more puritanical Islamic fatwas issued during the presidency of now-deposed leader Mohamed Morsi.
During Morsi’s brief stint as president, the Muslim Brotherhood and the equally violently straight-laced Salafists issued blatantly anti-women fatwas on a regular basis.
“At least six men raped her vaginally, and a number of men raped her anally…”
As reported by UPI on Nov. 26, 2013, CBS has disciplined reporter Lara Logan for her recent “60 Minutes” segment of the 2012 terrorist assault on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Many Americans have forgotten that Logan was the same reporter for CBS who was horrifically gang raped and viciously degraded/tortured while covering the Arab Spring celebrations in Cairo’s Tahrir Square in 2011.
It has happened before. The Onion or some other satirical website trading on the Onion’s success puts words in the mouth of former Alaska governor and 2008 Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin. And the civil-tongued inhabitants at the left side of the ideological spectrum go ballistic.
Today’s edition of Sarah Palin’s stupid — but conspicuously fake — pet tricks comes from Free Wood Post, whose banner reads “News that’s Almost Reliable.”
Muslim teacher gives child a sound thrashing.
In an example of the 21st century meeting the 7th, Muslim authority figures have issued what could mildly be described as curious statements concerning education of the youth in their respective nations, as reported by The Indian Express (of New Delhi) on Nov. 19, 2013 and also by the US military-controlled East Africa-centric news portal Sabahi.com on Nov. 20, 2013.
I have it on good authority that her slogan will be “Truth, justice, and death to America.” Too soon?
First, it was DC Comics that proved that, despite its name, it was also AC. In 2012, the company broke the mold by coming out with a superhero who was “coming out.” That was gay Green Lantern. Next up — and out — was Batgirl, who in April of this year revealed to the world that she was transgender and bisexual.
Five takeaways from the Democrats’ big wins Tuesday in Virginia:
—Obamacare isn’t that unpopular in the Old Dominion after all.
—A deep-pocketed Democrat cleverly used the Libertarian Party to fracture the GOP base.
—The gender gap is growing, in favor of Democrats.
—Money counts … again.
—Northern Virginia rules.
“Why can’t women drive in Saudi Arabia?” an article at CBBC asks in its headline. The reference is not to the age-old sexist complaint that some women are dreadful behind the wheel. Rather, it was to an edict handed down by the Saudi interior ministry this week that said women could be punished if they drive.
Talk about whistling past the graveyard! Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told the press today not only that the disastrous rollout of Obamacare website wouldn’t hurt the Democratic brand. She actually boasted that Dems would run on the Affordable Care Act in 2014 — and that they would win.
Marine Corps caps, before (left) and after (right)
It’s an understatement to say that the commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces has his priorities mixed up. Barack Obama’s latest initiative is to “invest” in new caps for the U.S. Marines that will give members of the Corps a snazzy “unisex” look. The White House hasn’t clarified how or if this ruling will affect Muslim military cadets, who were granted permission in 2011 to wear hijabs and turbans.
Obama: An equal opportunity failure
Man, life in Obamaville gets tougher by the day. First, the man who rose to prominence thanks to the tech savviness of his handlers finds that his signature legislation — the law that will define his legacy — is a technological nightmare of epic proportions. (Moral: he who lives by the double-edge sword of technology dies, etc.)
Now, September job numbers are out and contain more grim news for the man who sees himself as the savior of womankind.
