An all-female screening of Wonder Woman sounds like a fun marketing technique. But Jezebel decided to make the promo sound like it was a key role in the pro-choice feminist stand. The Alamo Drafthouse, based in Austin, Texas, received backlash from the public after announcing an all-female screening of Wonder Woman. According to Jezebel, the all female screening meant that “not just the audience, but the projectionists, chefs and theater staff, will be all female or those who identify as such.” And when the outcry got out of hand, Alamo Drafthouse creative manager Morgan Hendrix told The Washington Post that “providing an experience where women truly reign supreme has incurred the wrath of trolls only serves to deepen our belief that we’re doing something right.”
It’s Jezebel’s birthday. The left bows in homage.
Jordan Michael Smith, writing for The Guardian, reviews the influence brought about by Jezebel’s presence in the media for the past 10 years. Anna Holmes, the founder of the site, was an editor at InStyle when she started Jezebel. According to Smith, she “hated the magazine’s worship of luxury, the lack of racial diversity, and the shallowness of women’s publications generally.”
Faith Salie, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning and a comedic panelist on the snarky NPR game show WaitI Wait! Don't Tell Me!, penned a piece for the fiercely feminist website Jezebel . The headline was "Bill O'Reilly Didn't Harass Me, But His Viewers Did."
Leave it to the lefty gossip site Jezebel to use an innocent baby as a means to entice its audience into reading more “bad news” about the Michael Brown verdict: Darren Wilson’s going to be a father. Actually, the news of the baby was barely mentioned in the post.
Jezebel’s Hillary Crosley blogged about the recent interview Officer Darren Wilson gave to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday – less than 24 hours the grand jury decided not to indict Wilson for shooting Brown in August.
Michelle Duggar, of the popular TLC show “19 Kids and Counting” is under heat again from the media for publicly sharing her conservative religious views.
Earlier in the week, residents in Fayetteville, Arkansas received robo-calls from the famous mother, in which she warned families to protest a new anti-discrimination bill that went before the city council Tuesday night and passed. The ordinance prohibits employers or businesses from discriminating against transgenders in issues of housing, employment and public restrooms. In the robocall, Michelle Duggar warned parents that the new law would allow men to use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, possibly endangering women and children.
It’s hardly a shock that the paragons of class at Jezebel hate the Catholic Church, what with its rules and morality and stuff. But shouldn’t people who write for a living be able to come up with a better epithet for a Church cardinal than “Catholic Bullshitter?” Is that the best enlightened progressives can do?
Jezebel's Doug Barry blamed the Church for “deny[ing] gay people certain critical elements of what it means to be a full-fledged person” and dubbed Cardinal Timothy Dolan a “Catholic bullshitter” and a “self-justifying blowhard” in a piece published Sunday. Barry zeroed in on Dolan, the archbishop of New York, after Dolan admitted the Church was “out-marketed” in regards to marriage during NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Feminism isn't just a brutal philosophy for millions of unborn children. It's brutal on the Internet. Take the website Jezebel.com, a reference to the prophetess in the Book of Revelation who was "teaching and beguiling my servants to practice immorality."
This summer, a Catholic priest in Gainesville, Virginia took to Facebook to help find an adoptive home for an unborn child with Down syndrome. It spurred a little press boomlet when hundreds of people called or e-mailed the church, volunteering to raise the child.
The world of the elite liberal media is a small one. Witness Jezebel founder Anna Holmes and CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The Washington Post’s Megan McDonough covered Holmes’ newly published “The Book of Jezebel,” on the Style section’s front page via her piece: “A compilation of lady things, A to Jezebel.” In the Oct. 30 article, McDonough noted the presence of CNN’s “The Lead” Host Jake Tapper at a party after a D.C. book reading.
If there were a book dedicated to Jezebel in the Bible, the story might somewhat resemble the new feminist book, “The Book of Jezebel:” encouraging worship of false idols and ending up as a corpse left to the dogs.
In the case of the actual tome, “The Book of Jezebel,” the false idol is the self. Described as “an illustrated encyclopedia of lady things,” and edited by Anna Holmes, founder of ultra-liberal feminist site Jezebel, the book debuted in October. And of course it was well-received by liberal outlets like Huffington Post and NPR.
Bravo to Jezebel, the ultra-liberal feminist site, for addressing the ongoing virginity epidemic. When there are reports of girls graduating high school and even entering college without having had sex, only Jezebel’s Laura Beck has had the courage to stand up and scream, “Stop the Madness!”
Beck’s latest piece, “New Documentary Explores WTF Is Up With the Virginity Obsession,” publicized a film directed by Therese Shechter about virginity. Beck began her article with a typical Jezebel sneer: “Many of us are taught to hold our virginity close — to tuck it deep inside That Which Is Most Sacred until a modern day Jesus finally proposes and we can finally unclench our vaginal walls and let in the Married Penis Divine.” Women Make Movies recently released the documentary entitled “How to Lose Your Virginity.”
With the tide of popular opinion and state law running against them, abortion absolutists are turning to saviors (Wendy “Pink Tennis Shoes” Davis) and martyrs like the one profiled recently on the ultra-feminist liberal site Jezebel.
In an article titled “I Help Women, and I Could Go To Jail for It,” an anonymous author who claimed to be “one of America’s unlicensed, untrained illegal abortionists” told how s/he began an on-the-side career of dealing abortion drugs after receiving “desperate emails” and “desperate pleas” from numerous women.
If Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster to protect late-term abortion in the Lone Star State wasn’t proof enough of the Texas pro-abortion movement’s desperation, a new video game does the trick.
In “Choice: Texas,” designed by Carly Kocurek and Allyson Whipple and currently in development, players hunt for abortion access in Texas via the “choose-your-own-adventure” technique – and confront obstacles such as geography and healthcare.
