Oh No, '70s Feminism Is Back To Change Spelling Of 'Women' And Enforce Universal Pantsuit-Wearing

Chris Rufo has a new red meat, it is lady meat.

Those wacky right-wing shit-stirrers at Campus Reform, the Harass-Your-Liberal-Professor site that targets college and university faculty for allegedly doing woke indoctrination, have found a whole new thing to worry about.

This week, they sent one of their "reporters" to George Mason University to interview ordinary students about the latest leftist threat in America, even though the supposed threat is nonexistent and has nothing to do with George Mason U, or even with Masons, which seems like an oversight since they secretly run everything.

So what's the new threat from The Left? According to the article, there's an "emerging movement to change the spelling of the word 'women.'" Or at least Campus Reform and a few other right-wing nutters seem to want other righties to believe there is, only in addition to the old 1970s freakout over "womyn" as an attempt by Those Crazy Feminists to erase men, there's also the ongoing freakout over transgender people, as we saw with post-Dobbs gripes any time someone wrote "pregnant people."

The only problem with this supposed "emerging movement" is that it pretty much exists only in the heads of some right-wingers. Big surprise: it's a work in progress by professional Culture War hype man Chris Rufo, who also brought us the right-wing freakout over "critical race theory" in kindergarten classes, has helped stoke the ongoing panic over trans people existing, and is some of the "brains" behind the war on drag queens.

Florida School District Will Protect Little Kids From Joe Biden's Socialist Inauguration Poem

It wasn't 'censored,' it was 'made unavailable' to elementary students. They can read it in middle school if they aren't shot by then.

In the latest news from the school censorship battlefield — along with the Washington Post investigation (gift link) which found that most challenges to books in US schools were filed by just 11 people, yes really — we learned yesterday that Miami-Dade County Public Schools restricted access to a book version of "The Hill We Climb," Amanda Gordon's poem from Joe Biden's inauguration in 2021.

Remember what a joyful, beautiful reading Gorman gave us that day?

Hey, so Donald Trump selling pardons like a common street hustler is probably a bad thing, right? (New Republic)

Will Bunch makes some very good points about this major Trump scandal lying around in plain sight for more than two years. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

New York skyscrapers are causing the city to sink. That sounds dystopian but we haven't reached the point where wild vines cover the Empire State Building. (The Guardian)

Happy Cher's Birthday To All Who Celebrate!


Today is Cher's 77th birthday, and if you spend any time around here on the weekends, you have probably picked up on the fact that I LOVE HER. Like I have seen Moonstruck 47,000 times and currently have Burlesque on in the background as I am typing this. You know that X-Files episode where a bunch of townsfolk are scared of a Frankenstein-type guy with two faces and it turns out he's a super nice fella who is super into Cher, and then Mulder and Scully take them all to a Cher concert? I cry everytime, because of how very relatable it is.

So, instead of writing an actual article for our end-of-the-day post, I am just going to post some good Cher videos.

Here is the time she played all of the parts in West Side Story, which is a fun game that we all played as children, except for how sometimes it was also Gypsy.
