  • The Post Millennial One brave young man takes on gender inequality at USC Tuesday September 24th, 2019
    Misandry—the hatred of men—has been a staple of my polemical writing for more than fifteen years. I felt a special obligation to hammer away at gender myths such as intimate partner violence (women are about as likely as men to initiate violence against their partners as men), false sexual allegations (a disturbing percentage of such allegations) and demonstrable bias against father...
  • The Post Millennial Maclean’s burns itself with bizarre article about “mediocre white men” Wednesday September 11th, 2019
    I never thought of Maclean’s as a satirical magazine, but perhaps they are testing the waters on a rebranding. I cannot otherwise account for the bizarre article just published under their aegis by Scott Gilmore, “Thank God I could Enjoy the Age of Mediocre White Men While It Lasted.” This self-flagellatory apologia for being a successful white male reads like a parody of our ...
  • The Post Millennial Rashida Tlaib just can’t quit her anti-Semitism Thursday September 5th, 2019
    In late August, in what has been described by sources close to the victim as a brutal “honour killing,” Israa Gharib, a 21- year old Bethlehem makeup artist, was allegedly murdered by her father and brother to redress the shame Gharib’s family suffered when the woman posted a video of an outing with a suitor on her Instagram page.Responding to the tragedy, congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) twe...
  • The Post Millennial The moral panic over gender is very irrational and very real Friday August 30th, 2019
    Much of the west is now experiencing a moral panic around gender, based on the irrational hypothesis that, alone among the planet’s innumerable species, the sexual norm for humans is not essentially binary. All our political, social and cultural institutions genuflect to the now-sacralized notion that a subjective dysphoria—but only a gender dysphoria, not other kinds like anorexia—is the equiv...
  • The Post Millennial The fake Scheer homophobia scare is a new low for the Liberals Friday August 23rd, 2019
    The Liberals know they are going into the coming federal election with their leader, Justin Trudeau, weighed down by the heavy baggage of the SNC-Lavalin debacle and the India Tickle Trunk Tour, amongst many other embarrassments. So the Conservatives had to expect some desperation moves to cast their leader, Andrew Scheer, in what the Libs consider an equally bad light. And right on cue, the Li...
  • The Post Millennial After going woke and losing $8 billion, Gillette embraces masculinity again Thursday August 22nd, 2019
    It may just be a total coincidence. Or maybe not. Proctor & Gamble’s $8 billion writedown last month in the value of the 118-year old shaving business company, Gillette, that it purchased for $57 billion in 2005, followed closely upon the release of a highly controversial ad, which had little to say about the great shaves men could expect when using a Gillette razor, and a great deal to say...
  • The Post Millennial Who is the real Michael Coren? Wednesday August 7th, 2019
    A witty friend of mine once called her husband at work, and after only a few seconds asked, “Who’s in the office with you?” He was in fact with an important client. Later, he asked how she’d known he wasn’t alone. She replied, “Because you were speaking to me like someone who hasn’t shared my bed for thirty years.” The anecdote springs to mind whenever a public figure I know sacrifices spo...
  • The Post Millennial Canada’s marijuana laws are all about Trudeau’s hipster legacy Friday August 2nd, 2019
    Canada was the second country in the world to legalize marijuana (Uruguay was the first). The legalizing act calls it “cannabis” of course. So much more genteel than marijuana, eh? “Cannabis” sounds scientific, well-researched – while marijuana sounds kind of louche and stoned, too close to low-rent, pejorative sobriquets like pot, weed, hash, grass, ganja, reefer et al. But it’s sti...
  • The Post Millennial No, the Canadian election day is not an anti-Semitic conspiracy Friday July 26th, 2019
    Election Day is Oct 21. This year, the date coincides with Shemini Atzeret, one of several “High Holidays” festival dates in the annual Jewish calendar, at the tail end of the harvest festival called Sukkot, but which is largely honoured in the breach of its halachic (Jewishly legal) detail by all but Orthodox Jews (about 75,000 in Canada). By an unusual coincidence, the Conservative nomin...
  • The Post Millennial As absurd as it is, the Jessica Yaniv case has serious implications Tuesday July 23rd, 2019
    For its wider implications, but also for its looniness, our history books will marvel—if and when cultural sanity returns—at the singular “human rights” case of alleged transwoman Jessica Yaniv—sometimes self-presenting as Jonathan Yaniv—vs the waxologists. Yaniv retains his male genitalia. But, thanks to the recently invented, but imprecisely defined right of “gender expression” having be...
  • The Post Millennial Selina Soule is fighting for justice for women in sports Monday July 15th, 2019
    The transgender movement seemed like a pretty straightforward “rights” issue when it began. But after gathering steam, it became clear that trans rights and women’s rights were headed for a bruising collision. In one institutional or social arena after another—women’s prisons, rape shelters, locker rooms, waxing salons—we have seen that “justice” ...
  • The Post Millennial Living well is the best revenge: Israel is thriving despite BDS Saturday July 6th, 2019
    As part of its anti-racism strategy, the Canadian government recently adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism, which states that “Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or ...
  • The Post Millennial The PPC’s strength is their dedication to free speech Monday June 24th, 2019
    The nationalist Brexit Party, led by outspoken euroskeptic Nigel Farage, came into existence last January. Four months later, it boasts 29 MEPs (Members of the European Parliament). By contrast, this past May, Canada’s Green Party elected its second member of parliament after 36 years of existence. There’s a message here. The Green Party is not a “disruptor” of the stat...
  • The Post Millennial Ontario family files human rights complaint after six-year-old girl upset by gender theory in school Monday June 17th, 2019
    The following story has its source in an application filed before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario by Jason and Pamela Buffone, on behalf of their daughter “N,” against the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board for discrimination on the basis of gender and gender identity in contravention of the Human Rights Code. In January of 2018, in a Grade One class at Devonshire Community...
  • The Post Millennial The many faces of modern anti-Semitism Tuesday June 4th, 2019
    The other morning, I received an email from the president of my synagogue, an invitation for the membership to attend a town hall, where “a comprehensive discussion on safety and security” would be discussed. It struck me when I read the email that my grandchildren have never known a time, as we did, when synagogue doors did not have guards. The town hall may reveal that additional...
  • The Post Millennial In a world of sex dolls and robots, ethics are hard to pin down Tuesday May 28th, 2019
    The older I get—and I am already pretty old—the more I struggle to find the bright line that existed in my youth between written words that meant what they said and words that were meant to be read as parody or satire. For example, I just read a tweet by a transwoman who asserted that women can have penises, and anyone who disagreed with that statement “can just suck my dick....
  • The Post Millennial Twitter bans prominent doctor for stating facts Sunday May 19th, 2019
    Twitter has been in our lives for 13 years. But its practice of suspending and banning upright citizens for no other reason than holding incorrect views only got underway about four years ago. Today, the practice is so frequent and widespread that I daresay anyone reading this can point to someone they know, or follow on Twitter, who has suffered punishment by Jack Dorsey in this way. Most of ...
  • The Post Millennial A new German commercial takes man hating to the next level Wednesday May 8th, 2019
    As Mother’s Day approaches, I am reminded yet again of my wisdom, when my children were quite young, in banning its celebration from my personal calendar. I was never comfortable being honoured by generic rituals for a generic role in which my children were harnessed, via cards and gifts, into the equivalent of “compelled speech.” It was always my opinion that if my children l...
  • The Post Millennial We need shelters for male survivors of abuse Tuesday April 23rd, 2019
    Ask any feminist—no, wait, ask any woman—no, wait, ask just about anyone you know, male or female, young or old, dumb as a brick or a Brainiac—whether men or women are the victims of intimate partner violence (IPV: what used to be called “domestic violence”), and I promise you, almost everyone you ask will respond without pause, “women.” It’s just...
  • The Post Millennial J.K. Rowling has lost her magic touch by pandering to progressives Friday April 12th, 2019
    In 2007,  Harry Potter series creator J. K. Rowling made waves when she revealed that Albus Dumbledore, the much-beloved headmaster of Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and mentor to Harry Potter, was gay. Normally an author builds his or her characters on the page, leaving out nothing of special importance the reader must know to appreciate that character’s worth and motivations. So...
