  • 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...
  • The Post Millennial KAY: Can conservatives and liberals really be friends in 2018? Monday December 10th, 2018
    A dialogue between two former enemies, “Can You Love the Person You Love to Hate?” published by the New York Times, has attracted a lot of attention. The protagonists are female writers who used to spar angrily on Twitter, then found, when they met in person at a conference, that they actually liked each other. Are there lessons here for those of us who find Twitter combat with hat...
  • The Post Millennial KAY: Women are not “womxn” no matter what activists say Sunday December 2nd, 2018
    Activists at some British universities have decreed that the words “woman” and “women” are not inclusive enough in today’s gender-fluid world, so have introduced “womxn”—pronounced the same as “woman” and “women”—as a replacement. Some cultural groups immediately jumped on the bandwagon: Her Stories, a feminist organ...
  • The Post Millennial KAY: Shared parenting after separation – Canadians want it, but Bill C-78 stubbornly clings to outdated winner-takes-all model Thursday November 22nd, 2018
    Bill C-78, An Act to amend the Divorce Act had its first reading on May 22. It is now in Committee with witness presentations underway. Everyone agrees that government reforms on divorce law were necessary, as Canada’s Divorce Act has not been re-evaluated since it was passed in 1985. Given the rapid pace of socio-cultural change in the interim, it seems more like a century ago than a m...
  • The Post Millennial KAY: Britain’s refusal of asylum to Asia Bibi is the modern equivalent of Canada’s rejection of the MS St Louis Jews Saturday November 10th, 2018
    Almost ten years ago, Asia Bibi was an obscure farm worker in Pakistan, whose name would, in the normal course of events as we understand them in the West, remain completely unknown apart from her family and local fellow Christians throughout her entire life. But if you are not Muslim in Pakistan, there is no such thing as a “normal course of events.” You keep your head down and yo...

    Friday night’s Munk debate between David Frum and Stephen K. Bannon at Toronto’s Roy Thompson Hall had, as its topic, “Be it resolved, the future of western politics is populist, not liberal.” It was a remarkable event for a variety of reasons.

  • The Post Millennial KAY: Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test – mocked by Trump and rejected by the Cherokees Sunday October 21st, 2018

  • The Post Millennial KAY: Should Brett Kavanaugh have stepped down after being confirmed, as Jordan Peterson suggests? Monday October 15th, 2018
    Some Facebook threads I started by posting pro-Kavanaugh pieces ended up occupying a good part of my time last week. With comments split pretty evenly between sympathy for him and sympathy for her, the subject became a kind of gender Rorschach test for the #MeToo era. What impressed me in these exchanges was the absolute faith invested in personal demeanour as a litmus test for arriving at mor...

  • The Post Millennial The Villain in the Trans Mountain Fiasco – and Other Fiascos since 2004 – is the Supreme Court of Canada Tuesday September 11th, 2018
    The Trudeau government was clearly taken by surprise at the Federal Court’s nullifying of their approval of the 1,150-km Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Otherwise they would not have signed a deal with Kinder Morgan that explicitly stated any adverse court decisions would not be deemed to constitute a “material adverse effect” that could change the deal’s terms. No w...
  • The Post Millennial Andrew Scheer, the Media and our Society’s “decadent last phase” Friday August 31st, 2018
    In a scene from the film Casablanca that has retained instant recognition since 1942, bar owner Rick asks police captain Renault: “How can you close me up? On what grounds?” Renault responds: “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”Since then, when one wants to express the fact that one is actually shocked, you use the word once; if you want to express the fact th...
