Words so strong they have splash damage.
Zionism is no longer about Israel's right to exist, it has become about Israel's right to do whatever it wants to whoever it wants.

Zionism is no longer about Israel’s right to exist, it has become about Israel’s right to do whatever it wants to whoever it wants.

According to Haaretz it looks like Israel’s ‘Zionist Union Party’ (ZUP) is probably going to win the country’s upcoming election.

Looking at the party’s platform one is initially filled with hope.

They talk a good show about opening talks with the Palestinians and the international community. Negotiating a sustainable peace and ending the destructive Israel/Palestine conflict.

Unfortunately, when you look at the details of their proposal it becomes clear that the Zionist Union is just another bunch of imperialists, who want to keep the Palestinians under their iron-heeled boot.

When I heard that Sony was cancelling ‘The Interview’ I was pissed off.

This was definitely a case in which the terrorists won, and I wanted to write about it.

But then Sony decided to cave a second time.

And 12 people were murdered in Paris, because other people disagreed with their ideas.

It got me thinking about responsibility and agency.

And I’ve come to the potentially controversial decision that if people want to risk their lives by going to a theatre that might be blown up, or by printing a cartoon that will enrage people, then that is their right, and we have no right to stop them.

And if journalists want to be able to call themselves that then they should probably start posting a few more pictures of Muhammad.

Sadly, I dug all the way to Margaret Thatcher, who is in hell, and this doesn't seem to be satire.

Friends, I’m a feminist, and have been one for over a decade.

Yes, I’m a dude, we’ve been over this.

And I am constantly confronted by people who don’t know what feminism is, but have strong opinions about it.

I’m sure you know the type. There the ones who think that feminism is an attempt by women to dominate men, that there is no need for feminism because women and men are now treated equally and so on.

One of the things that this ignorant group often says is that feminists, as a group, hold beliefs that are just crazy.

Those of us who read up on feminist issues know that this isn’t true. But the fact is that in every social movement there will always be a certain number of people who are just plain nuts, and feminism is no exception.

In feminism they make up a small percentage, but they’re still there.

So today, in the interests of fairness, I’m going to discuss a post by a self-identified feminist that is just plain, downright, indefensibly, irredeemably, craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy.

The page is called ‘Radical Wind’ so I shall call her ‘RW’ for simplicity’s sake.

RW is arguing that heterosexual intercourse is always rape.
