Breaking the Narrative Episode 103: Waxing Mid-Terms, Waning Logic! Politicized Scholastics?

I realize the title of this one may be a bit confusing, however I did want to slip in one last midterms joke before we vote Tuesday. I don’t have too much to worry about, my polling place is in walking distance. I do know one thing though, I’m not voting for Karl Dean to be governor of my state.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 102: So Much Blood! Whats Up With Goblin Slayer???

If you are in any way acquainted with anime then this past month you’ve likely heard of the new series Goblin Slayer! With the fourth episode having just passed, I figured that this makes for the best time to cover it. This is not just because of how much is out there but because it’s Halloween.…

When Transmisogyny Is Misandry, or, When The Anti-Trans Anti-PC-Sphere Hates Men

Breaking an Opinion Episode 4: Victimhood Isn’t Attractive!

New Atheism As The Seed Of The Post-Religious Right: A Speculative History

Author’s Note: I am aware that HBB is primarily a gender issues blog, and I confess this article is somewhat tangential in its relationship to that subject.

Merry Meet all….this article will not be one of jokes or of lightheartedness because the source material I will be using as an example for the core of my argument is rather somber. Whats more is I wish to say I don’t feel any one person in this dour event is particularly at fault so much as the combination systems and actions by the feminist ideologues that have done their damnedest to mold our society into one of their choosing.…
