As the women's Final Four college basketball games were approaching this weekend, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw stirred up a hornet's nest by promising she will never hire a male assistant and griping about sexism in the hiring of college basketball coaching. She also complained that the U.S. has not passed the Equal Rights Amendment. An Oregon sports columnist strongly objected to McGraw's discriminatory remarks, prompting support for McGraw by panelists on ESPN's Around The Horn talk show.
Equal Pay Day, supposedly how far into the year women must work to earn the same amount men made the previous year, fell on April 2 this year (8 days earlier than last year) and of course Hollywood was all over it.
Tuesday was National Equal Pay Day and, in a nod to the liberal trope that there is rampant pay inequity among men and women, Freeform’s Good Trouble brought a young female engineer’s scheme to expose her male bosses online in an effort to even the score to a conclusion.
Ok Miss Milano, which one is it? Do we believe all women? Or do we just use that maxim to go after men we disagree with politically? Alyssa Milano took to Twitter on Monday to post her unconditional support of former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been accused of “inappropriate behavior” by several women, and it seemed strangely out of character for the vocal #metoo maiden.
Unplanned actress Ashley Bratcher had some choice words for Hollywood actress and left-wing gadfly/activist Alyssa Milano following the Charmed star’s criticism of Georgia’s pro-life “heartbeat bill.” In an open letter, Bratcher blasted Milano’s recent Deadline op-ed criticizing a new Georgia bill that would require physicians to abandon the abortion option upon detecting the heartbeat of an unborn baby.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to announce a run for president some time in April and has been testing the waters and smoothing over rough spots in his past. As part of that effort Tuesday night, he made yet another public apology to Anita Hill, the law clerk who falsely accused Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. The apology drew the attention of the CBS Evening News, who highlighted it Wednesday.
An issue frequently pushed by leftist feminists is that of the myth of gender-based pay inequity between men and women doing the same jobs in the same industries. The issue is promoted to a young adult audience on Freeform’s Good Trouble as Mariana struggles to adjust to her job in the high-tech industry. The episode airing March 19, titled "Less Than," even moves into playing the race card.
Both Singer/songwriter Katy Perry and Clarence Thomas’ accuser Anita Hill will be honored at yet another political awards show next month. The idea of the this probably gets people wondering: “For what? Being fraudulent political hacks?”
There's a big shakeup going down at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) this week. In a surprise announcement on Thursday, the hateful left-wing "hate watch" group disclosed the sudden firing of co-founder Morris Dees. Although the SPLC declined to specify why, reports of racial bias and a possible #MeToo situation quickly surfaced.
Season three of CBS All-Access's The Good Fight is off and running with the issue of sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement. In the episode that aired March 14 titled “The One About the Recent Troubles," President Trump’s alleged scandals involving women other than his wife are brought into the mix.
If Hollywood’s #MeToo maxim “believe all victims” is to be held as some universal moral standard, then Johnny Depp’s side of the story must be given some serious credence as well. The actor has endured two years of media attacks over allegations of domestic abuse from ex-wife Amber Heard, however new evidence has surfaced that might indicate that Depp has been the abuse victim all along.
Entertainment media continue to wage war on President Donald Trump and conservatives, with major networks, cable TV, and streaming services hurling insults and ignorant opinions at every opportunity. In February alone, at least 40 separate entertainment programs attacked conservative values and/or President Donald Trump while promoting a hardcore progressive agenda.
