It’s the holiday season once again when we enjoy time with family. You might share Thanksgiving dinner, or shop together, or stay up all night talking with people you haven’t seen for a long time. Maybe you’ll even gather together to watch old movies.

But whatever you do, do not watch the 1984 John Hughes classic 16 Candles. So scolds thin-skinned writer Sara Stewart writing at the New York Post, who claims it is “racist and sexist and needs to be retired.”

She starts by citing the character of Long Duk Dong, played by Gedde Watanabe in the part which brought him fame, as a Chinese foreign exchange student whose name when spoken is marked by the sound of a gong.


But Stewart saves her knives for the lead male roles, whom she accuses of promoting date rape. Yes, that includes Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling), the hero, the Perfect Guy about whom the lovestruck heroine dreams. Jake Ryan — wealthy, well-mannered, popular, and drop-dead handsome, the character about whom women would still swoon 20 years after the release of 16 Candles.


Stewart writes: “Jake (Michael Schoeffling) — the supposed Perfect Guy — has a prom-queen girlfriend named Caroline (Haviland Morris), who gets so drunk at his party that she passes out. “I could violate her 10 different ways if I wanted to,” says Mr. Right.”

But Jake doesn’t. No matter, the buzzkill Stewart is determined to tear down whatever joy anyone derives from 16 Candles. Nor is this her first foray into digging up sexism in popular films; this past spring she accused the Marvel comic-themed Avengers: Age of Ultron as “fair game for slut-shaming.”

From the magazine that has brought you quality reading material such as “Can you Vajazzle and Still Be a Feminist?”, tips on how to tell your love interest that he/she is going to get “explosive” oral sex later (in emoji), new uses for that glazed doughnut you got from the Dunkin’, how not to emasculate a man by asking him out on a second date and how to deep freeze your undies for thrills comes the latest and greatest: an article entitled “This is what it’s like to fall in love with your brother.”

The article weaves the tale of two siblings, “Melissa” and “Brian”, who were separated as children reunited as adults after the death of their father. They met at a bar after chatting on Facebook and the phone and walked out of the bar hand-in-hand to the car where they proceeded to “tear the clothes off” of one another. Scientific contributors to Cosmo explain this phenomenon known as Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA):

“Social scientists and psychologists have long researched how societies’ prohibition against incest evolved: It’s essentially nature’s way of protecting humans from passing along the genetic mutations and disease risks that happen more commonly with close relatives, explains Dr. Debra Lieberman, a professor of Psychology at the University of Miami. The dominant theory, first proposed by Finnish social scientist Edward Westermark, is that people become desensitized to those they are raised alongside.

“Westermarck’s hypothesis and my research have shown that siblings use clues like living under the same roof and being cared for the same parents to develop a sexual aversion,” Lieberman says. “But if you don’t grow up together, no aversion naturally develops.”

How The Left Tries To Keep Ruining Thanksgiving

by Deanna Fisher on November 25, 2015

I don’t know what it is about “holiday family gatherings” that the Left sees as “MAJOR POLITICAL OPPORTUNITY!” But this Thanksgiving, multiple left-wing groups, plus the Obama administration, are pushing the idea that Thanksgiving is the PERFECT opportunity to join together with family, eat a meal, and force awkward political conversations into these gatherings.
First up in the parade of indigestion-inducing leftists is the congressman from Florida, Alan Grayson, with a bad combination of fundraising and revenge.

Because the person who would pay to submit your name name for a phone call from Alan Grayson really, really hates you, and probably isn’t someone you should spend the holiday with. At least, not without a food taster.

The Chicago Police Department released a dash cam video yesterday illustrating a police officer shooting 17 year-old Laquan McDonald. The incident happened in October of 2014 and depicts Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting McDonald 16 times. WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO

“The officer in this case took a young man’s life, and he’s going to have to account for his actions,” People have a right to be angry, people have a right to protest. We knew this day was coming. We’ve been prepared for this day coming for quite some time.

“We are not predicting doom and gloom,” We are predicting protests.”-Superintendent Garry McCarthy

Van Dyke was ordered held without bail at a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said she had decided weeks ago to charge Van Dyke but was holding off until federal authorities completed their part of the joint investigation. Alvarez “moved up” her decision to charge Van Dyke after a Cook County judge ruled last week that the video should be released to the public.

McDonald, who was later found to have PCP in his system when he died, was refusing police commands to drop his knife. Officers trailed him for nearly half a mile, from a trucking yard where he had been breaking into vehicles through the parking lot of a Burger King. Officers tried to corral McDonald while awaiting backup to keep him away from passers-by. At one point, McDonald used the knife to slash the front tire of a squad car that was in his way. Van Dyke arrived on the scene, jumped out of his with his gun drawn and opened fire on McDonald, city officials have said. [click to continue…]
