‘Be proud of being a huntress': Must-read tweets hammer anti-hunting leftists and their #WarOnWomen

For two weeks, anti-hunting screechers savaged 19-year-old big game hunter Kendall Jones with death wishes, threats and their weapon of choice — misogyny. When the media discovered that 17-year-old World Cup fan Axelle Despiegelaere had posted a hunting photo on Facebook, all hell broke loose. L’Oréal was quick to distance itself from the newly discovered model, announcing that her “one-time contract” was completed.

Earlier this month, PGA Tour golfer and Kendall Jones supporter John Peterson suggested, “If it was a 60 year old overweight dude posing with his African kills, no one would talk.” He’s not 60 or pudgy, but his hunting photo certainly didn’t spawn weeks of national headlines. The anti-hunting, gun-grabbing Left sure loves to target young women, huh?

Bloggers, Surveillance and Obama’s Orwellian State

Jay Carney is free. But not loose – at least so far. After resigning as the press secretary for President Obama on June 20, Carney gave insight into the Obama administration’s handling of classified documents, and responded to criticism that this administration has been the most Orwellian in recent history.

“I know — because I covered them — that this was said of Clinton and Bush, and it will probably be said of the next White House,” said Carney in a recent New York Times Magazine interview. “I think a little perspective is useful…It is a serious, serious matter to leak classified information. Some of the debate around this kind of forgets how serious that is.”

But, it could also be the changing nature of the relationship between the media and the White House. At a recent event at the New America Foundation, journalists and historians challenged Carney, arguing that…

You could say it’s not the number of protesters but the quality — none of these anti-Hobby Lobby groups has a chance of making the same splash that Holly Fisher did with her one-woman pro-life, pro-Hobby Lobby pic.

Still, protesters have turned up in front of Hobby Lobby stores across the country to make their case against the Supreme Court’s ruling.

Young Men, Sex, and Urge Ownership (And Why It’s Not The Girl’s Problem)

Originally posted on john pavlovitz:

Young men, I need to tell you something; something that maybe your fathers, or your coaches, or your uncles, or your buddies never told you, but something that you really need to hear.

Your sex drive? It’s your problem.

I know you’ve been led to believe that it’s the girl’s fault; the way she dresses, the shape of her body, her flirtatious nature, her mixed messages.

I know you’ve grown-up reading and hearing that since guys are really “visual”, that the ladies need to manage all of that by covering-up and keeping it hidden; that they need to drive this whole physical relationship deal, because we’re not capable.

That’s a load of crap.

You and me, we are visual.
We do love the shape of women’s bodies.
We are tempted and aroused by their physicality.

And all of that, is on us, not on them.

You see, we actually live…

Government Sanctioned Fat Shaming

From Smart Girl Politics

growproj2_child_on_scaleFor years, parents in the State of Georgia have had to fill out a Form 3300 when enrolling their children in school for the first time. The form, which is mandatory, had sections for vision and dental checkups along with vaccinations. Okay…no big deal, right? After all, kids need to be able to see the whiteboard and dental records can show underlying health issues that could affect their learning capabilities. But have they gone too far with the “nutrition” section that includes a child’s Body Mass Index (BMI)?

The BMI requirement on Form 3300 is ridiculous at best and at worst is another attempt by big government to dictate what we eat through “fat shaming”. As we have already seen, the BMI has been used in other areas of the country to send “fat” letters to parents regarding their child’s “unhealthy weight”. In almost every situation, the parents said that the claim of their child being overweight was ridiculous. The children also expressed feeling confused and “hurt” that they were fat.

#FLOTUS is mad kids don’t like her lunch program #VIRALVideo

Apparently, according to Michelle Obama, it’s the Republicans fault that inner city kids are skipping their lunches at school.

Via IJReview:

At a fundraiser Monday, Michelle Obama slammed House Republicans who are pushing to grant waivers to schools that are losing money due to her “Let’s Move!” lunch program. The GOP also seeks to ease the law’s requirements when it is re-authorized next year. None of this sits well with the First Lady:

Michelle Obama told donors that Republicans in Congress were dedicated to obstructing not only her husband’s political ambitions but her own efforts to reduce child obesity.

“We all have a right to expect that our hard-earned taxpayer dollars won’t be spent on junk food for our kids,” she said pointing out that parents have a “right” to expect healthy meals in schools.

Michelle pointed out that “her” legislation and “her” national school lunch standards were drafted by “experts” using “sound science,” but that…
