“Pornography, Paedophilia, Perversion and the End of Civilisation?”? CT

Aug 23, 2020 by

by David Robertson, theweeflea: This week’s Christian Today column – I regard this as absolutely vital if we are seeking to understand the decline of our culture and the solution to that.  A lot of different things came together in this article.  I feel very convicted by it.  CT originally had the title – “Sex Positive or The End of Civilisation”.  They have now changed it to “Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion: Empowering women or the end of civilisation?”  Given that the article is about...

How Britain’s Feminist Grass Roots Turned the Tide Against Gender Extremists

Jun 19, 2020 by

by Erin Perse, Quillette: In the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic and a series of massive protests over racist police brutality in the United States, one might find it hard to believe that an author’s common-sense views on human biology would make headlines. Yet everywhere you look, you’ll see coverage of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who’s now being denounced as “transphobic” for speaking plain truths about the differences between men and women. In fact, so much attention has been focused on...

May 13, 2020 by

by Julie Bindel, Spectator: Reading the back cover of the soon to be released Me Not You: The trouble with mainstream feminism, I assumed Titania McGrath had churned out a new book. But on further inspection I realised it is in fact the latest from Alison Phipps, Professor of Gender Studies at Sussex University – a disciple of the ‘sex work is work’ and ‘trans women are women’ faux-feminism cult.

Screwtape: ‘The state’s desire is dressed up as “concern”…’

Mar 19, 2020 by

from Archbishop Cranmer: The second contribution to His Grace’s emergency team ministry during the coronavirus pestilence comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous for professional reasons: Years ago, CS Lewis in his Screwtape Letters gave us insight into some of the correspondence from senior devil, Screwtape, to his nephew and apprentice devil, Wormwood. We are able to catch up some years down the line as Screwtape muses of the gains that have been won in the destruction of the...

Why aren’t women having more babies?

Mar 13, 2020 by

By Mary Harrington, UnHerd: Did feminism kill the birth rate? The circumstantial evidence is damning. The ‘Women’s Liberation’ movement kicked off in earnest in the Sixties and Seventies, demanding (among other things) free contraception and abortion on demand. And over the same decades, the fertility rate crashed. This should not be a surprise. Human babies take a long time to reach independence, which confers significant obligations on their parents. Before the existence of the welfare...
