Life Changes

by W.F. Price 10.16.2014

My son is now three months old and becoming more engaging every day, so I have a lot to be thankful for. But I’ve had to confront a few realities lately. Importantly, I haven’t been able to consistently or effectively work from home for reasons that other parents probably understand. This is probably my biggest […]

Theme Issues

by W.F. Price 09.19.2014

Readers have probably noticed some problems with the site, and the comments in particular. This is due to the fact that I’m using an old theme, and WordPress has upgraded many times since it was first installed. I can and will fix it quickly, but it will require hacks and will be a pain in […]

Sex Selective Abortion OK or Not? Feminists Can’t Decide

by W.F. Price 09.18.2014

Practically speaking, sex-selective abortion is a non-issue today, because anyone who wants to have one can whether or not it’s technically against the law. If a woman can have a test to check her child’s sex, and she can have an abortion at any time after that, she can have a sex-selective abortion so long […]

The Sexy Sexual Jihad

Thumbnail image for The Sexy Sexual Jihad by W.F. Price 09.17.2014

I’ve been wondering for a while why there hasn’t been much of a crackdown on westerners who join up with Islamic State. Not all that long ago, getting involved with a foreign terrorist organization would get you in very hot water. But today, there have been calls – especially from the UK – for mercy. […]

Feminist Gains in Sweden Dwarfed by Rise of Nationalists

by W.F. Price 09.16.2014

In the runup to Sunday’s Swedish election, expectations for Feminist Initiative, the world’s strongest explicitly feminist political party, ran high. But when the disappointing results came in faces were streaked with tears and supporters needed to lie down (presumably to avoid injury from fainting): The Swedish election on Sunday offered enough emotional extremes for even […]

Men’s Health: Guys Need to Cultivate Relationships

by Elusive Wapiti 09.16.2014

Back in March 2014, S1 and S2’s grandmother passed unexpectedly of heart failure during surgery for an unrelated malady.  In fact, she “coded” as S2 was just entering the hospital to visit her in recovery.  S2 took her loss especially hard, as he was close to her, but the person who took it the hardest, […]

Is Sending the Army to Fight Ebola a Good Idea?

by W.F. Price 09.15.2014

President Obama has declared that the US armed forces will now be involved in the effort to contain the ebola virus, which is proliferating throughout West Africa, leaving corpses scattered across streets. While the army may have a significant reservoir of medical expertise, its job is not, and never has been, to contain foreign epidemics. […]

Rotherham and the Future of Blue Cities in the US

by W.F. Price 09.15.2014

The real dirty secret in Rotherham is that the underground sex-trafficking rings were facilitated by the politics of contemporary multicultural Western cities. Ironically, in Muslim run cities in the Middle East, while these things happen, local officials are not likely to be complicit in them, because this kind of behavior has a way of (literally) […]

Moral Re-Armament: The Original “MRA”

by W.F. Price 09.15.2014

Today I thought I’d throw in a little bit of history as our world order enters yet another period of uncertainty and change. Not long ago while reading about Christianity in Europe and the US during the age of dictators, I came across a powerful Protestant social movement I’d never heard of. I should have […]

Ugly Republicans

by W.F. Price 09.14.2014

The Palin family is in the news again for a dustup at a Wasilla house party, embarrassing themselves and Alaska yet again. This time, the fight was over a remark about Willow Palin, which triggered a brawl that involved young single mother Bristol throwing punches at a young man. The entire clan got into the […]

Enabling the Hamster

by W.F. Price 09.12.2014

It’s a relief to see that Futrelle is back on my case again. I was feeling a bit neglected lately, and wondered whether I still had it in me to stir up his cat lady audience. That question has been answered in the affirmative. So, since it’s been such a long time, I thought I’d […]

Girls Who Code Produces First Killer App

Thumbnail image for Girls Who Code Produces First Killer App by Uncle Elmer 09.12.2014

Efforts to close the “coding gap” between girls and boys are starting to pay off as two teens participating in the “Girls Who Code” program have released an exciting new arcade game that rips the lid off the social ignominy of menstruation. In a society that normalizes gun violence but levies a huge stigma on […]

An English Perspective on Scottish Independence

by W.F. Price 09.11.2014

Opus’s quote pertaining to Scottish independence was too good to pass up, so here’s an excerpt for those reading the feed: Note that the English have absolutely no say in whether they remain joined at the hip like struggling Siamese twins with the Pipe-playing Porridge eaters.
