Leonard Nimoy, 1931-2015
When news broke a few days ago that actor Leonard Nimoy had been hospitalized, I feared the worst, and it has happened: he has passed away at the age of 83, of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which he attributed to his former smoking habit. Like many...

So it turns out The Vagina Monologues isn't sufficiently feminist because it's exclusionary to transgender women with manly bits.

You just can't make this stuff up.
Replacing the play will be Mount Holyoke’s own version that will be trans-inclusive and fix the “problems” supposedly perpetuated by Ensler.

We begin the 2015 blogging year with this note of brilliance from astrophysicist, Cosmos host, and popular spokesman for Science!, Neil DeGrasse Tyson: Obama authorized North Korea sanctions over cyber hacking. Solution there, it seems to me, is to create ...

Alternative headline: Despite Delusions of Masculinity, Female Reproductive System Still Functions Normally.

"It is likely that the men giving birth were born female but identify as male and kept their female reproductive organs after transitioning."

Remarkable observation, there, Sherlock.
Figures from Medicare revealed the 54 men have given birth in the past year. 22 were from West Australia, while 16 were from NSW. Most of the men were aged 24-36.

"The first thing that one asks is that the adventure should be various and exciting; in this respect Mr. Tolkien's invention is unflagging, and, on the primitive level of wanting to know what happens next, 'The Fellowship of the Ring' is at least as good as 'The Thirty-Nine Steps.'"
- W. H. Auden, 1954

If not for the effusive praise of the rest of the review, "at least as good as 'The Thirty-Nine-Steps'" would seem like damning with faint praise. (Then again, it's been decades since I read Buchan's book!)
Seventeen years ago there appeared, without any fanfare, a book called "The Hobbit" which, in my opinion, is one of the best children's stories of this century. In "The Fellowship of the Ring," which is the first volume of a trilogy, J. R. R. Tolkien continues the imaginative history of the ...

"What if you don’t know the gender of a non-human animal? I prefer to use 'they,' just as I would for a human; but others prefer 'she' or 'he.'"

The stupid not only burns, it's making my hair and teeth fall out.
Respecting Gender Identity By Pax Ahimsa Gethen Snow, a hen, is a “she.” Someone, not something. Want a sure way to “dehumanize” (and likely infuriate) a person? Call them “it.” “It” is for rocks and cars and paper clips— not people. One of the first concepts I learned when getting involved in animal rights advocacy is that our fellow animals are people too, and they also deserve gendered pronouns, such as “she” and “he.” So ins...

"TIME apologizes for the execution of this poll; the word ‘feminist’ should not have been included in a list of words to ban."

Dear TIME: If you have a real journalist on staff, assign him or her to research why "feminist" was far and away the front runner until you decided to fudge your own poll because you didn't approve of the outcome.
Editor's Note: TIME apologizes for the execution of this poll; the word 'feminist' should not have been included in a list of words to ban.…

Femen do a lewd stripper routine at the Vatican, while meanwhile, a beta male at NASA apologizes to feminists for his sexy T-shirt. 

50 years since the women's liberation movement began, and apparently feminism STILL can't decide whether it's OK to objectify women's bodies. Just one more irrelevant, morally schizophrenic ideology to ignore and/or laugh at.
Femen activists protested in St. Peter's Square today in Rome. The topless protesters simulated anal sex with a crucifix. Police quickly arrested the women and took them away. The Local reported: Femen, the women's rights group known for topless protests,…
