House Republicans let the Violence Against Women Act expire when they refused to pass a beefed-up, more expensive version that extended extra money and programs to illegal immigrants, lesbians and Indian tribes.

We may be seeing the beginning of the unraveling of the feminist regime due to its success in disenfranchising the men who have paid for it. Feminism is a self-defeating movement precisely because it consumes and destroys what made it possible in the first place: private, male-created wealth.
However, rather than cheer the end of this despicable, sexist bill, we should take a moment to reflect upon the men who have lost their families, careers and even lives as a result of its excesses.
