  • The Post Millennial The PPC’s strength is their dedication to free speech Monday June 24th, 2019
  • 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...
  • The Post Millennial Bill 21 is not the problem critics think it is Saturday April 6th, 2019
    Bill 21, “An act respecting the laicity of the state,” is ramping up for passage in Quebec. It will impose complete neutrality with regard to religion-signalling on the province’s public servants in areas such as elementary and high school education, the courts and law enforcement. Anyone presently wearing a visible symbol of their faith – notably the (visible) cross, the kippa and the hijab – ...
  • The Post Millennial Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and the problem of compelled speech Thursday March 28th, 2019
    One of my favourite Seinfeld episodes had Kramer joining an AIDS walk. But he refuses to “wear the ribbon.” People keep urging him to take it, and he keeps politely refusing. They become more importunate. He won’t budge. Finally, they get ugly and turn on him with menace: “Who doesn’t want to wear the ribbon?” one walker yells accusingly, as others press in on him.The scene is, of course, playe...
  • The Post Millennial Justin Trudeau is an actor, not a prime minister Monday March 11th, 2019
    Justin Trudeau’s “contrition” session with the press turned out to be a nothingburger. He did not apologize. He would only cop to an “erosion of trust” between his guy, Gerald Butts, and Jody Wilson-Raybould, implying that Canadians should be blaming Mr. Erosion, not him. He allowed as how “there is always room for improvement,” the kind of thing one sees written on one’s children’s report card...
  • The Post Millennial Canadian sports “experts” embrace misogynist practices to please trans activists­ Monday February 25th, 2019
    Months ago, I tweeted that sports would be “where the rubber hits the road” on deference to trans ideology, because affirmation in sport of biological males who identify as women cannot co-exist in harmony with a level playing field for women. That burning smell? Rubber is hitting the road—hard. The latest incident in women’s medal erasure comes from Connecticut, where two transwomen sprinters ...
  • The Post Millennial Trans activists hate these two powerful women Monday February 18th, 2019
    Today, Reader, I bring you a tale of two young women—one Canadian, one American. Both are as smart as the proverbial whips and, more important, heroically resistant to extraordinary pressure by trans activists to disappear them from public life.Their common “crime” is insisting on the right of women to be acknowledged as a unique phylum in the human biological kingdom, with lesbians as a unique...
  • The Post Millennial Trump, Northam, infanticide, blackface, and the fury of Democratic women Thursday February 7th, 2019
    If you watched Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, your eye would have been drawn to the cadre of Democratic congresswomen all dressed in white as a kind of upscale, sedentary version of the Women’s March, signifying their support of women and their #resistance to Donald Trump. All that was missing were the pussy hats.To me, it seemed kind of a sophomoric, ironically “Stepford W...
  • The Post Millennial “Toxic masculinity” in advertising: keeping women scared and men shamed Friday January 25th, 2019
    Some students of human nature believe that, because our ancestors could only survive as a species human through a constant awareness of danger, we are endowed with an inherent need to be in a “state of fear” about something or other, even if the objective danger is neither existential nor widespread. It’s certainly true that political movements often encourage a state of fear to enhance their i...
  • The Post Millennial Gillette has a problem with men, and now consumers have a problem with Gillette Wednesday January 16th, 2019
    In the last few days, the tables have been turned on Gillette, the world’s most famous name in razors. The company has been getting a very close shave from its customers. There isn’t a styptic pen in the world big enough to stanch the blood flowing from the myriad nicks they’re suffering as punishment for a short film ad they thought would capitalize on the #MeToo zeitgeist to good corporate ef...
  • The Post Millennial Endocrinologists warn against hormone treatment for childhood gender dysphoria Wednesday January 16th, 2019
    I have a transgender friend. She is now in her 50s, so has been taking the relevant hormones for more than 30 years to maintain her female appearance. What I like about Monica (not her real name) is that she is as disapproving as I am of the bullish trans activism that makes light of lifetime hormone usage, and the risks posed by such long-term usage.Monica made her decision as an adult with op...
  • The Post Millennial The American Psychological Association goes to war against boys and men Thursday January 10th, 2019
    The American Psychological Association (APA) has, for the first time in its history, come out with Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Boys and Men. One does not have to have read the entire 30,000 word document to appreciate its thrust: “traditional masculinity” is bad for society as well as to boys and men themselves. Stoicism, competitiveness and risk-taking, the qualitie...
  • The Post Millennial Maclean’s magazine encourages women to regret having children Monday January 7th, 2019
    The article’s headline was meant to grab women’s attention, and I am sure it did: “‘I Regret Having Children’,” a feature article in the February issue of Maclean’s mag, throws a positive light on what the author, veteran journalist Anne Kingston, seems to believe is the opening salvo in a brave new epoch of female liberation, the desanctification of mo...
  • The Post Millennial KAY: The debate over “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is tone deaf Monday December 17th, 2018
    Baby, it’s cold outside. Seriously. I live in Montreal and it’s extremely cold outside. We’re also deeply into pre-Christmas festivating, which naturally involves multiple inescapable encounters with the eponymous holiday earworm, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” an allegedly rapey song so widely discussed it has its own recognizable acronym, BICO (as in “Bro...
