Thursday, September 24th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Doing their best to invite a new dark age, student and faculty groups at institutions of higher learning throughout the nation have started labeling certain academic materials with “trigger warnings” which enable students to opt out of exposure. A few institutions have responded by standing up for free speech. The latest is American University in […]

Saturday, August 29th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

Professor: “Close your eyes and imagine you are in a world free from triggers. Imagine that that mean, white, cisgendered syllabus can’t hurt a young, gay man like you, Eric.” Student #1: “Wait, what? I’m not gay…” Student #2: “Uh…is this Literature 101?” That’s what a lot of people are asking these days. Unlike college […]

They’re at it again. Those super-tolerant folks at the Freedom From Religion Foundation are going after Christian believers who share their faith with others.

Thursday, August 20th, 2015 - by Chris Queen

If you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until college football starts. Nothing compares to Saturdays in the fall and the tailgating, pageantry, and traditions that go along with college football season — especially here in the South. I’ve written in the past about how the South does college football best, and I devoted […]

Saturday, August 15th, 2015 - by Michael T. Hamilton

Across America, college students are resigning their summer internships to return to studying a field of their choice that may–or may not–lead to gainful employment right out of the gate. Recently my college, having discovered that I have cobbled my English major into a not-terrible career, invited me to sit on a panel to advise […]

Open Letter from Politically Correct College Student Proves Jerry Seinfeld’s Point

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

The culture of political correctness has gotten so bad at college campuses that even bleeding heart liberal comics like Jerry Seinfeld feel out of place.

Stop Blaming Women for America’s Marriage Dilemma

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Anti-feminist Suzanne Venker went on a tirade about millennials who don’t marry. The problem, of course, are those women who give the milk away for free or let the man pick up the check at dinner. Seriously. If her rage isn’t stereotypical enough, check out the rom-com reasoning she quotes from Dr. Helen: Men know […]

Sunday, March 29th, 2015 - by Spencer Klavan

“Safe spaces” are the hot new thing on college campuses. And since the last hot new thing on college campuses was a deplorably racist movement to boycott Israeli businesses, what could possibly go wrong? No but don’t worry guys, this hot new thing is like, totally all about love and inclusivity and intersectionality and sensitivity […]

Can Feminism Exist Without Institutions of Higher Education?

Thursday, March 26th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Anita Sarkeesian, self-dubbed “social justice activist,” details that, had she not engaged with the sphere of contemporary feminist academia, she would not have become a feminist. A convert to the faith, it was only by adopting the “systemic and institutional framework” depicted by modern feminist writers that Sarkeesian was able to “see how oppression manifests […]

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Melissa McGrath, an undergraduate student at Ohio State University, was invited to participate in her college’s TEDx Talk, because, although not in possession of a doctorate, McGrath has  “a valid story to tell, and (she thinks) that will shine through.” Her thesis: Feminism proffers salvation. Her “valid story” plays like a tent-revival testimonial about how feminist […]

Should Women Speak First in University Classrooms?

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 - by Janice Fiamengo

Assemble a roomful of feminists to discuss the situation of women on university campuses, and what do you get? A case study in self-righteousness and intellectual hollowness. Such was the scene at Dalhousie University’s recent panel in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in which seven feminist activists outlined the steps necessary to overcome rampant campus misogyny. One […]

Exposing Feminism’s Patriarchy Myth on Campus

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Arthur Chu wrote a wandering epithet over at Salon on “bitter nerd” Scott Aaronson’s rant against feminism. Aaronson’s complaints as detailed in Chu’s piece are far from new. As a graduate teaching assistant I had many male students (rather nerdy types) walk out of film theory classes declaring they were “horrible people” and “secret rapists” because […]

How to Outwit a Radical Feminist

Monday, January 12th, 2015 - by Spencer Klavan

There’s an intellectual war going on, and conservatives are surrendering. In elite universities all over America and Europe, incoherent and destructive ideologies are taking hold. Radical feminism, socialism, cultural relativism: these are philosophies founded on logical fallacies and barefaced dishonesty. But they’re gaining ground. Take a look at Brendan O’Neill’s article in The Spectator: universities […]

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014 - by Helen Smith

Heather Mac Donald has an article at the Weekly Standard on campus sexual assault: Sexual liberation is having a nervous breakdown on college campuses. Conservatives should be cheering on its collapse; instead they sometimes sound as if they want to administer the victim smelling salts. It is impossible to overstate the growing weirdness of the […]

No Sex, Please — We’re Californians

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 - by Stephen Green

I’m with Dave Barry that Neil Diamond’s “I Am, I Said” is one of the worst songs ever written. But I’ll go a step further and argue that the real shame of it is that it started off so promising. The first verse is not a bad piece of writing at all. Read: L.A.’s fine, […]
