G.K. Chesterton

by W.F. Price 07.25.2014

Yesterday, a commenter pointed out that G.K. Chesterton had made a point very similar to my own and in very similar terms many years ago. Not having seen it previously, I was a little taken aback by the similarity. Not because I thought the idea was entirely original when I wrote it down, but because […]

When “Humane” is Anything But

by W.F. Price 07.24.2014

Another condemned convict has died slowly on the gurney as a yet another state botched another execution. After being poisoned with lethal drugs, James Rudolph Wood III took an hour and forty minutes to die, presenting witnesses with a macabre spectacle as he gasped and heaved and resisted death. Finally, after a deacon with a […]

Debunking the Patriarchy Myth

by W.F. Price 07.24.2014

Feminists believe that all of recorded history is one litany of subjugation of womankind, ended only in recent times by the brave and stalwart feminists, who wrested power from the patriarchy (how they did so is not usually explained). It’s bunk, and people only believe it because they have extremely limited knowledge of history. The […]

Growing up in the Belly of the Beast

by W.F. Price 07.22.2014

Marion Zimmer Bradley has been in the news recently because her daughter wrote an exposé of her horrific childhood abuse at her mother’s hands. Bradley’s daughter, classical harpist Moira Greyland, alleges that she was sexually abused, beaten and, on a couple occasions, nearly drowned in the bathtub by her mother. She also tells tales of […]

The Disposability Paradox

by W.F. Price 07.21.2014

Just a few years ago, triumphalist screeds about the “End of Men” were all the rage, but somehow the younger generation of women didn’t get the message. Instead, they’ve been rejecting “feminism” in stronger terms than I’ve ever witnessed in my life. A new social media trend called “women against feminism” (#womenagainstfeminism on Twitter) has […]

Feminist-run Shelter to House Illegal Children and Young Mothers

by W.F. Price 07.19.2014

When you want to find urban corruption today, the first place to look isn’t Italian mobsters and greedy Irish cops, but the “social justice” crew and their associated powerful backers. I’m convinced that nonprofits, which don’t have to disclose funding sources in most states, are the primary centers of political corruption in the US today. […]

Trans-Thor

by W.F. Price 07.17.2014

Marvel comics has decided to change Thor, the Norse god, into a woman. But that doesn’t mean the new she-Thor will be a goddess, oh no: This morning on ABC’s The View Marvel announced that Thor, Marvel’s God of Thunder, will be a woman in the comics. The news is a major shift in Marvel’s […]

The Myth of the Empowered Working Class Single Mother

by W.F. Price 07.16.2014

I’ve been pulling the early morning shift with the baby for most of the last week so my wife can have some time to sleep, and then she in turn gives me time for sleep, but despite all that I didn’t get a full night of sleep for about two weeks. When there’s a newborn […]

Das Baby

by W.F. Price 07.07.2014

Well, another little guy has come into the world. I’m happy and relieved that all went well and he’s a healthy, vigorous boy. Despite the pain and exhaustion, my wife has been a trooper throughout it all, and now she’s a happy mama. I’m proud of her, and intend to give her all the help […]

At the Baby Center

by W.F. Price 07.06.2014

I’ve been in and out of the local childbirth center over the last 24 hours, and like most dads I am above all hopeful that everything will turn out alright. It’s a nice little hospital with lots of young first-timer parents and a few veterans like me. I love seeing the young fathers, despite the […]

Preparing for New Baby

by W.F. Price 07.03.2014

I’ve got another little one on the way and he’s due right about now, and complicating matters I picked up the kids for the summer today. These things can’t be predicted with much certainty, so if there’s radio silence for a little while that’s the likely explanation. Once we’re settled in, it will be back […]

Mark Driscoll’s Un-Brotherly Behavior Catches up to Mars Hill

by W.F. Price 07.02.2014

Mark Driscoll founded the Mars Hill Church in Seattle some fifteen years ago, determined to bring conservative Evangelical Christianity to the most radically left wing city west of the Mississippi. He had great success, despite – or perhaps because of – the hostile political climate. In unchurched, liberal Seattle it’s easy to position oneself as […]

PRIDE Toronto Boots CAFÉ

by W.F. Price 07.01.2014

Barbara Kay, who spoke at the Men’s Conference in Michigan, wrote a column yesterday about the arbitrary ejection of CAFÉ from Toronto’s Pride parade, held last weekend: The annual Pride event in Canada’s biggest city is supposed to be a celebration of all things and causes relating to gay culture and, more broadly, to formerly […]

From The Spearhead to the National Debate on Marriage and Interpartner Violence

by W.F. Price 06.27.2014

A couple weeks ago, I noticed that Heartiste posted a Bureau of Justice Statistics graph I used last year to demonstrate that feminist fearmongering about husbands was putting women in danger. Heartiste retweeted the post when I first published it, so he gave The Spearhead credit for the research, and I’m glad he reposted the […]
