Feminist New Year’s resolutions: Maim, kill, and humiliate more men in 2015

January 6, 2015

 My latest blog post for the Los Angeles Times:

I resolve to do more of this in 2015

Guess what’s the ultimate misogynist evil that obsesses feminists:

Men who say, “Smile,” when you pass them on the sidewalk!

Yup, that’s what I’ve learned from perusing several hundred of the entries on #FeministNewYearResolutions, the hashtag for feminists hoping to make things different in 2015.

You likely won’t find many actual feminist New Year’s resolutions on this Twitter page — “Renew my subscription to Ms. magazine,” or “Remember to donate $100 to Emily’s List,” for example. But you will find plenty of data about the indignities, real and imaginary, that have eaten moth holes into the brains of feminists.

For them it’s not New Year’s but Festivus, with the Airing of the Grievances as its central ritual.

And it turns out that the numero uno grievance, arousing feminist vengeance fantasies that range from castration to murder, is … those darn strangers on the sidewalk saying, “Smile.”
