"You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill... and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." So says Morpheus to Neo in The Matrix.  For Rep. Robert Fisher (R-NH), the "rabbit hole" is feminism. Though Fisher has demonstrated misogynistic views in the past and has publicly defended the misogynistic actions of his colleagues, the extent of his idiocy was unclear until Tuesday, when an investigation by The Daily...

So, yeah, this isn't a "new sex trend." This is sexual assault. A report by the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law led by Alexandra Brodsky features interviews with victims and a look into online communities that encourage "stealthing." Brodsky...
