#Feminism – Christina Hoff Sommers and Camille Paglia: The full interview

What would happen if Based Mom sat down with Based Goddess for an hour to discuss modern-day feminism? No need to speculate—here’s the full one-hour interview (with bonus content!) featuring Christina Hoff Sommers and Camille Paglia where they break down #Gamergate, intersectional feminism, the “male gaze”, and much, much more.

A $1,400,000 Beatdown?

Is what happened here worth $1,400,000?

DETROIT — A white, former Detroit-area police officer was found guilty Thursday of assault and misconduct in the bloody beating of a black driver during a traffic stop that was captured on video.

Wayne County jurors handed down the verdict in the case against William Melendez, who was charged in the January beating of Floyd Dent. Police stopped Dent, 58, in the Detroit suburb of Inkster for disregarding a stop sign, and dashcam video from a police vehicle shows Melendez punching him 16 times in the head.

It wasn’t until after WDIV-TV aired the footage in March that Melendez was fired. Inkster later agreed to pay $1.4 million to Dent, who suffered broken ribs, blood on his brain and other injuries.

The jurors found Melendez guilty of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and of misconduct in office. They cleared him of a charge of assault by strangulation.

Well, I don’t think it was worth it. As long as it doesn’t come out of YOUR pocket, you probably don’t care. Well, you would care if you were getting the beat down!

I’m glad that this happened:



This Generation Is Triggered

Wow, this guy sounds like me, except I don’t use the word “nigga” at all…and would NEVER wear a man bun if I could grow my hair out again.

But yeah, he has a similar mindset as me when it comes to independent thought.

I think it’s fascinating when people have called me a misogynist. I literally laugh out loud when that happens. People really have NO IDEA what they are saying most of the time.

Being called names certainly won’t change how I feel about certain ideologies. I’m brave enough and adult enough to not get my feelings hurt by people I barely know calling me names online. In fact, I’ve been known to have the ability to push back in person and online.

It’s refreshing to see a young person challenge his peers and let them see that people aren’t necessarily always in one box or another. We might be tribal, but we all don’t think alike. We all don’t have views that are consistently liberal or conservative. We tend to straddle the fence more than we think.
