I know it’s a satirical site, but the best satire is spot on.
Modern Feminism:My Feminist Boyfriend Isn’t Working Until The Wage Gap Is Fixed
Would it be fair for him to work the same amount of hours in a comparable job and make more money than me? Definitely not! Until the wage gap is closed in all fields, he will not be working. Which is…fine. And good! It is good.
A lot of people who aren’t as committed to fighting the patriarchy (like my parents) just don’t understand why my boyfriend can’t work while being an activist. Couldn’t he just volunteer at Planned Parenthood to support women? Sure, he could and he totally would (he said that once after we had sex) but he doesn’t want to take the glory away from women volunteering at Planned Parenthood. He’s so thoughtful!
I had failed society once again. Perhaps I had been too sloppy. Too careless. Perhaps it was from the times when I brought him into the men’s restroom instead of the unisex room. Perhaps it was when I would take more groceries than Gwen when we were carrying them inside. Perhaps I didn’t wear dresses and skirts in the house enough times. Either way, it was clear that I had created, not a gender-fluid feminist, but a son.
Both Gwen and I are ashamed, but working to accept our son’s choices. We hold out hope, as Sally Kohn does, that our child will at least be gay. Perhaps during his adolescent years he will discover Tumblr, and that community will get the message across better than we. Every parent has high hopes for xer children, even in the face of severe disappointment and failure.
A good progressive is not allowed to laugh at anything that might possibly be perceived as oppressing or hurting someone (Christians, heterosexuals, and Republicans exempted, of course). In fact, the progressive leftist derives moral superiority from not laughing at “offensive” humor. So much so that stand-up comedians are actively avoiding college campuses. Because the PC Police could not handle a joke like this.
I first noticed the Progressive Comedy Pause while sharing my hilarity at office staff meetings. The majority would laugh but the committed lefties would stare blankly, each eye like that spinning wheel your smartphone shows while an app is loading. (The PCP might be why progressives just hoot and clap at Bill Maher’s jokes; the laughter reflex is considered problematic.)
It’s harder to laugh when you’re scared and much of the left is terrified. They know that an inappropriate chuckle, the wrong tweet, or last year’s term for an aggrieved minority can lessen their standing with progressive peers, if not get them fired from a job. Lefties also have turned the negative of humorlessness into the positive of moral superiority. Sniffing “That’s not funny!” at an inoffensive Caitlyn Jenner joke signals that you are more evolved than the average cis-het-white-oppressor.
I’m gonna make fun of Caitlyn Jenner if I want to. I’m gonna make fun of Barack and Michelle Obama. I’ll make fun of Rachel Maddow. And I’ll laugh my ass off while the lefty sourpusses stew in their sanctimonious bitterness.
One of the advantages to being an anti-social conservatarian who doesn’t care about political correctness; it’s a lot more fun.
Hey look, there’s now a home-version of the Folsom Street Fair.
Although, you can also use it to learn how to satisfy Dan Savage on a first date.
I understand Barney Frank bought one to use as a napkin dispenser.

Hat Tip: Diary of Daedalus
I’ve never played it or heard of it, until I just caught this on Breitbart (via Bruce’s Twitter stream).
I’m Gay and ‘Ass Hunters’ is One of the Funniest Games I’ve Ever Played
by Milo Yiannopoulos
The outrage bell is tolling this week over Ass Hunters, a game in which you play a safari hunter who shoots homosexuals with a shotgun, trying to avoid getting molested by them…The game is as hilariously silly as it sounds.
…the moral police on both sides of the political fence are up in arms…[including] the left, of course, which is screaming blue bloody murder about the supposed homophobic incitements to violence and hatred…
That’s why Google was yesterday forced to remove a mobile version of the game, which has been floating around on the web for years, from its Play Store. All of which leaves me a bit mystified as to what possible harm this ridiculously daft, cartoonish nonsense could possibly to do society.
…both camps have completely missed the joke…It’s actually a very funny satire…
Read the whole thing.
A friend recently reminded me of this:
Marxists’ Apartment A Microcosm Of Why Marxism Doesn’t Work
Nov 13, 2002
AMHERST, MA—The filthy, disorganized apartment shared by three members of the Amherst College Marxist Society is a microcosm of why the social and economic utopia described in the writings of Karl Marx will never come to fruition, sources reported Monday. (more…)
Mitt Romney told a joke at a campaign event for Joni Ernst, the wannabe Republican senator from Iowa. It was a mild little thing. I have heard better Obama jokes (I am quite fond of the one that begins “A Muslim, a Kenyan, and a Communist walk into a bar…) But since the joke was directed at the Democrats’ god-king, it is, of course, being attacked as racist and hateful by the same people who thought Sandra Bernhard’s joke about Sarah Palin being gang-raped was pretty funny stuff.
The GOP … or at least the GOP IT Staff (I really doubt any of the RNC management is this clever)… did somewhat better with this Error Page on their website, which is also sending humorless leftists to the fainting couches.
Nothing left to say about Mozilla, except I’m trying out Pale Moon and Torch in preparation for uninstalling Fascistfox. So far so good.
Hillary created a fake Twitter account so she could pretend to have “faith and values” supporters on her side. But we all pretty much already knew that her support is all low-info voters, greedy cronies, and astroturf.
This is kinda funny; the Global Warming Cult in the UK is demanding that the new High-Speed Rail train not be quite so … um, high-speed. Because… ManBearPig. Meh, damn thing was a boondoggle anyway.
The Democrats have found a congressional candidate even nastier and crazier than Alan Grayson. The Democrat base, naturally, is in love with the guy.
Anyway, here’s this. I am sure it will offend the progressive left being, you know, funny.

Try to avoid letting media hype trick you into making any bad decisions, like voting for an Obamacrat or doing what this dumbass did. K? Seriously, don’t be this guy.
P.S. If you feel that anti-gay discrimination is too serious to joke about (and it is, in some places): then please re-think your willingness (if any) to excuse Islamist dictatorships, and/or your opposition to gun rights.
