Heterosexual Pride Day?

Heterosexual Pride Day?

Apparently, “Heterosexual Pride Day” was July 1st. Did you know that? I didn’t. Frankly, the only way I even heard about it was from a so-called “news” page that comes up when I access my email — one that routinely links to opinion pieces from left-of-far-left news sites as if they’re what any average person should be reading and agreeing with.

8 More Strange Things ‘Pro-Choicers’ Apparently Believe

I recently saw a comments section online where a number of “pro-choicers” were stating their views about “pro-lifers,” apparently assuming there wouldn’t be any of them reading what was being written about them. In the space of no more than fifteen such comments, there was enough outright box-o’-rocks craziness to inspire another list of strange things “pro-choicers” apparently believe.

Defending the Obvious

Defending the Obvious

We have been placed in the position of having to defend plain, obvious truths as if they were, at best, seriously questionable claims. The “magic dust” that confuses and disarms us is made up of popular opinion, pressure to conform, the “conclusions” of politically correct “experts,” portrayals in mass media, etc. — that is, whatever can be used (or abused) to make us hesitant to speak up.
