Something for the Pro-Lifers to Think About
Abortion has been gracing the headlines and news outlets a lot lately. Not for its decline or anything along those lines, but for people marching in the streets. Many on the hating-it side are yelling...

Capitalist Activism
Activism is not a commodity. It is not a product to be bought and sold and advertised. It is not a successful marketing strategy, either.

Gillette's New Ad Is Infuriating Both Men AND Women
Gillette came out with a new ad the other day… and it’s driving people completely up the wall.

It doesn't mean that all men physically, sexually, or even verbally attack each other, but a lot of men do sit back and do nothing. That in itself is toxic masculinity and it adds to the problem. They pointed out that there’s still a hu...
