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 […]

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 […]

Jewish Father Faces Death Threats as Wife Tightens Vice

by W.F. Price 06.26.2014

Rivky Stein, mother of two and Orthodox Jewish wife to Yoel Weiss, has not found civil family law courts to be quite enough for her. Although she’s accused her husband of rape and of punching her in the stomach when she was pregnant (which could bring an attempted murder charge), and even had him falsely […]

Interesting Comment of the Week

by W.F. Price 06.24.2014

Commenter hindsight2020 recently left a comment on the April 16 article “Once a Man, Always a Man” that I thought was worth sharing. He writes about the “Hijras,” India’s transgender/eunuch caste. It isn’t a pretty picture, and perhaps it’s something we ought to keep in mind as the US marches onward toward institutionalized transsexualism. I […]

The decision by the Mormon church to excommunicate the founder of a prominent women’s group marks a stern statement at a time when the […]

The Slow Shift South

by W.F. Price 06.23.2014

In just a week or so, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union is set to renegotiate contracts for its West Coast port workers. The ILWU has a long history in Seattle and San Francisco, and has won incredibly sweet concessions from ports over the decades. A foreman, for example, makes over $200,000 per year, and […]
