The pretty dead girl is not public property

‘Factual feminist’ Christina Hoff Sommers on RadioNZ

Factual feminist Christina Hoff Sommers talks to Radio NZ’s Kim Hill about the guilt-by-association smear tactics routinely used to discredit her. I thought it was worth uploading because Sommers is coming to New Zealand next year and we can expect to read all sorts of false allegations about her leading up to her visit.

Here is the full interview.

On being ‘a member of Don Brash’s club’

Don Brash

Kia ora koutou,

I’ve never actually published a written article on Whaleoil before, just a few vlogs and satire videos. I’m currently working on a much longer article covering such topics as identity politics, victimhood culture, ‘privilege’, oppression and ‘allyship’, as they pertain to Aotearoa. Fun stuff.

I’ll be back to making YouTube content in no time — I have a copy of Lizzie Marvelley’s new book beside me as I type this and I’ll be doing an in-depth review of that (if ‘depth’ is the right word) so watch this space!

Anti-cruelty: Animal welfare amendment bill

If you have a great Youtube or Vimeo video to share send it to [email protected]

Video commentary on that coming soon.

A transcript of Bridges’ speech can be found here.


Video: Quick thoughts on a tough topic

This is a mini behind-the-scenes rant to get it off my chest. I’m currently editing a video on the topic of animal cruelty. Well, it’s more about our first ever “dedicated Minister for Animal Welfare” being under investigation for physical assault… but I’m using that subject as a lead-in to talk about what could be done to make things better for animals in New Zealand. Thinking and talking about this stuff is really hard for me and I’m struggling a bit.
