Social Justice Warriors, A Case Study in Dumb

Maetenloch covered most of this last night, but, well. Look, I want to mention it too!

Plus, I don't know if people read Maet's stuff any more than they read mine.

Man caves are sexist and must be stopped.

Free yoga classes cancelled, as yoga is a "cultural appropriation."

Ayan Hirsi Ali slams feminism's determined focus on "trivial bullshit." She spoke of real fights for women's equality -- such as the fight her father had with her mother, her father insisting that she be allowed to get an education (her mother against it, thinking it would make her a social outcast), and contrasts that sort of battle with the Tumblr Jihads feminist trivialists are interested in:

"What we are now doing with the victory, and I agree with you if you condemn that and I condemn whole-heartedly the trivial bullshit it is to go after a man who makes a scientific breakthrough and all that we as women -- organized women -- do is to fret about his shirt?" Hirsi Ali said, referring to the controversy generated by the shirt featuring cartoons of scantily-clad women worn by the scientist who helped land a robot on a comet. "We must reclaim and retake feminism from our fellow idiotic women."

Meanwhile, CNN aired the discredited college-rape-panic film The Hunting Ground, as alleged news-like content. As that's been happening, a member of that film's crew has been editing Wikipedia's entry on the film, in contravention of Wikipedia's sensible ban of anyone with a conflict of interest about the subject editing an article about it.

Oh, and this is delicious: Moving Towards a Feminist Epistemology of Mathematics. From @popehat.
