  • The Post Millennial The war on critical race theory indoctrination is worth winning Friday October 2nd, 2020
    One of the more repulsive domestic aspects of the First World War in England was the "White Feather Campaign.” Though physically near-weightless, in its symbolism—male cowardice—the white feather was heavier than Tungsten. Women motivated by a hysterical form of patriotism would hand them to any able-bodied man they saw on the streets as a goad to enlisting (or re-enlisting). ...
  • The Post Millennial Black moms and dads deserve to know the truth—kids do better with two parents Saturday September 26th, 2020
    In late July, Congress's Joint Economic Committee (JEC) issued an important report, "The Demise of the Happy Two-Parent Home." Although its findings are illuminating, many of them are a poor fit with certain passionately held beliefs in progressive circles. Therefore, it failed, with conservative exceptions like the Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times, to attract attention from mainst...
  • The Post Millennial BC father may face jail for not acknowledging child's gender transition Friday September 11th, 2020
    You cannot get married in Canada unless you are 16 years old, and in most provinces that is only with parental consent. The "full age of consent" is held to be 18 or 19, depending on the province, the age at which point neither parents or a court may stop you. Have you ever wondered why that is? Why don't we take a 13-year old's word for it when she says she is madly in love with her boyfriend...
  • The Post Millennial Drug addicts do not benefit from 'harm reduction,' but from rehabilitation and treatment Friday September 11th, 2020
    On Aug 25 the BC government announced there has been a shocking rise in street drug deaths this year, 175 in the last month and, to date in 2020, more than 900 people, a 136 percent increase from July, 2019. Illicit drug-related death number "surpass deaths due to homicides, motor vehicle incidents, suicides and COVID-19 combined," according to chief coroner Lisa Lapointe. The chief culprit is ...
  • The Post Millennial Betsy Devos restores much-needed due process to American campuses with Title IX reforms Wednesday August 19th, 2020
    Before she was appointed Secretary of Education by Donald Trump in 2017, I had never heard of Betsy DeVos. My Trump-loathing friends immediately dismissed her as unworthy of the role: a socially conservative billionaire’s wife with no professional experience in the educational system, and the poster girl for political cronyism. As I soon realized, that was an unfair judgment. The h...
  • The Post Millennial Conservative newspapers must not succumb to cancel culture Thursday August 13th, 2020
    "Newspapers have turned into colleges. Boardrooms have turned into colleges. Graceless corporate pseudo-macho American sports have turned into colleges."The quote comes from Mark Steyn’s July 27 obituary of Mike Adams, the 55-year old  University of North Carolina, Wilmington, professor who, long shunned by his colleagues and vilified by students for his spirited political heterodoxy...
  • The Post Millennial Why I'm leaving the National Post Thursday August 13th, 2020
    It’s been two decades since my first byline appeared in the National Post. For a woman who already was well into middle age when her career began, the experience has been a thrill and a privilege. Perhaps more importantly, it’s been lively, energizing and fun. The National Post was conceived in 1998 as a safe haven from the stale pieties that dominated (and still dominate) the...
  • The Post Millennial REVIEW: The End of Gender by Debra Soh Friday July 24th, 2020
    Most authors dedicate their books to loved ones or inspirational teachers. Debra Soh, sexologist and neuroscientist, dedicates her new book, The End of Gender: Debunking the myths about sex and identity in our society to “everyone who blocked me on Twitter.” It’s a fitting tribute, since aggressive opposition to Soh’s spirited defence of science against the prevailing t...
  • The Post Millennial It turns out cognitive differences are as simple as a game of chess Friday July 24th, 2020
    The lockdown has had disparate effects on people, depending on their preferred activities. If a daily squash game was your routine before COVID-19, the days have stretched out endlessly. But if you love bridge, as my sister does, and you don’t mind remote play (she loves it: less socializing), you haven’t skipped a beat. Considering who else might be equally happy with remote play,...
  • The Post Millennial Now the woke army is trying to cancel classical music for 'racism' Thursday July 23rd, 2020
    The COVID-19 lockdown has been a catastrophe for the world of live arts—theatre, music, dance—but it has given some deep thinkers in these domains a lot of time to ponder the state of their industry, and to wonder what their particular genre will—or should—look like in its post-virus incarnation. Combine that circumstance with the swelling anti-racism momentum of the la...
  • The Post Millennial Why are teenage girls afraid to become women? A new book explains their flight from biological reality Friday July 10th, 2020
    Only once (so far) has Twitter suspended my account, and then just for 24 hours. About two years ago, I foolishly lost my temper in a furious Twitter exchange with a Toronto lawyer about radically escalating gender dysphoria rates. This lawyer was (may still be) a frequent contributor to CBC panels on gender issues. He is a firm trans ally who tends to preface any and all gender-related s...
  • The Post Millennial Homeschooling emerges as a viable alternative to ideologically driven public education. Friday June 12th, 2020
    Harvard University was supposed to be hosting a by-invitation-only conference next week, billed as a “Homeschooling Summit.” The official description stated that “the focus will be on problems of educational deprivation and child maltreatment that too often occur under the guise of homeschooling.” Or, in laymen’s terms, “Homeschooling is evil, and we ha...
  • The Post Millennial The diversity, inclusion, equity movement (DIE) is now taking over the STEM field Tuesday June 2nd, 2020
    It used to be that students—mostly men, mostly white in the past, now increasingly diverse—who went into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math—STEM—thought they were safe if they kept their heads down. But they aren’t safe anymore. Having successfully suppressed the numbers of white males in most other departments, the diversity, inclusion and equity movement (...
  • The Post Millennial Erin O'Toole has what it takes to clobber Trudeau in the next election Monday May 25th, 2020
    He was out. Then Jim Karahalios thought he was back into the CPC leadership race. But last week the LEOC (Leadership Election Organizing Committee) determined that he is definitively disqualified.Karahalios has a following, and they will be disappointed, but let’s remember the good reason he was shunned in the first place. He had, as leadership competitor Erin O’Toole framed it,...
  • The Post Millennial Terry Mosher's face mask/niqab cartoon misses the mark Thursday May 14th, 2020
    Quebec premier François Legault now “strongly recommends” that Montrealers wear a mask out in public, and he underlined the message by himself wearing a medical mask when he announced it. I knew it wouldn’t be long before he became the butt of ridicule that ironically linked his mask to  Quebec’s infamous Bill 21, which precludes the wearing of the niqab&mdas...
  • The Post Millennial Forget everything you think you know about single-use plastic Tuesday May 12th, 2020
    With air and car traffic reduced so dramatically during the Covid-19 crisis, the salutary knock-on effect of lowered carbon emissions and pollution must be a solace to locked-down eco-warriors. But their mellow from that outcome is likely harshed a bit by the return to the use of plastic bags in supermarkets for the sake of virus-inspired hyper-hygiene. The once-ubiquitous plastic bag is a sta...
  • The Post Millennial New petition demands fairness for women in Olympic sports Monday May 4th, 2020
    The coronavirus pandemic has affected every facet of our social, cultural and economic lives, in ways too many to count, both small and large, affecting every institution in every community, from neighbourhoods to cities to the nation and beyond. Internationally, the cancellation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics was a particularly bitter pill to swallow for the International Olympic Committee (IOC), ...
  • The Post Millennial The coronavirus crisis reveals the hypocrisy of the ‘diversity’ squad Tuesday April 21st, 2020
    Global statistics reveal that hospitalized men are far more likely to die of COVID-19 than women. Are men more vulnerable because of lifestyle choices—elevated smoking and obesity rates, say—or for biological reasons yet to be discovered? The jury is still out. Apart from being used as leverage for dark humour by misandrists, this disparity hasn’t attracted significant public...
  • The Post Millennial Social distancing rules are getting out of hand in the coronavirus era Thursday April 16th, 2020
    We’re all doing our best to “social distance.” We get it. This novel coronavirus spreads through the air, and two metres between people is needed to keep ourselves from infection or from infecting others. We’re most of us trying to do that. But we’d be happier doing it without Big Brother hovering over us. Because, as I said, we get It Last Friday, Oakville, Ont r...
  • The Post Millennial BDS founder wants to boycott everything except Israeli medical help Friday April 10th, 2020
    Omar Barghouti, founder and leading guru of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, whose goal is to weaken Israel economically to the point of collapse, now finds himself in an embarrassing position, for having, in a moment of candour, exposed the inherent contradictions at the heart of his project. Speaking of the pandemic in an Arabic-language Facebook broadcast, as part of a ...
