Feminism Sinks to a New Low

Posted October 24, 2014 By John C Wright

A comment by Jonah Goldberg, which represents my sentiments so exactly that I have nothing to add: I know that sounds impossible, but I think it just may be true.

Posted October 21, 2014 By John C Wright

By definition, one can only boycott a vendor one patronizes, perhaps even patronizes on a regular basis. So, one cannot boycott someone of whom one has never heard, or someone one already avoids as a matter of course.
