People are Dying While You Promote Your Agenda: A Plea to Address True Need

Two things have shocked me recently at the United Nations (UN): the stark reality of urgent need around the world, and the absolute determination of interest groups to push their agenda no matter the cost or context. How is climate change related to gender equality, or menstrual health to a sustainable environment? You would be […]

Straw Bans Fail To Consider People Of All Abilities

Recently, everyone’s favorite “woke” left-wing coffee chain announced that they plan to eliminate plastic straws by 2020. Starbucks rolled out a design for strawless lids in some stores in 2016, but they plan to make them the norm in all locations in 2020. This follows an effort from towns and cities, including Starbucks’ home city […]

Hey feminists, LISTEN UP!

If it isn’t bad enough that we have feminists shrieking about tax on tampons while they wear pink female genitalia hats, now we have extreme feminists in the United Nations infecting the world with their ridiculous ideologies.

“Big Eyes” Biographical Drama Sheds Light on Feminism

It can be hard to decipher the true aims of feminist movements these days. While some seem heroically focused on recognizing and valuing the beauty and assets that women impart onto the world, others seem like no more than schemes aimed against women. These movements manifest subtly in “women’s rights” movements that defend abortions, a […]

HUMANE VITAE PREDICTIONS & PROOF (PART II)

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Humane Vitae even after all this time, the controversy around the document seems to have remained unsettled. Even a simple mention of the topic is enough to cause a brawl among Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The document is considered by some as an imposition of Church’s tyranny, ruling […]

Digital Misogyny: Gender abuse on Female Human Rights Defenders and Activists.

Gender abuse is a conversation that we have been having for the longest time possible and this often culminates into gender based violence. Gender violence, although the focus is mostly on violence directed towards women, can also be directed towards men, and it is expressed in three recognised ways. These are domestic, community and institutional. […]

World Population Day 2018 – Poor people do not have rights to a family

As I approached United Headquarters at NYC a woman approached me and handed over a brochure. She said “could you please sign a petition asking UN Secretary General to promote small family norm especially for the poor?” That was it. She picked the wrong person. While I was running late in my schedule for the […]

When did valuing family become a ridiculous joke?

In a High-Level Political Forum event in the UN this week on renewable energy, there was an alarming comment made. It occurred when the topic of clean cooking fuels for women came up. One of the forum discussants, Joan Carling of TEBTEBBA (Indigenous Peoples Major Group), was commenting on this issue. Carling said that we […]
