At 20 years old Buffy the Vampire Slayer Remains the Most Conservative Show on TV

So it’s here, the 20th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the show, not that movie we never, ever speak of). This has strangely brought out some people who have questioned this blog’s stance that Buffy is the most conservative show in history.  Some liberals have claimed that it is not conservative in any way… Read More ›

The Future of Entertainment: Fan Owned and Legion M Operated

Lena Dunham, A Truly Disturbed Individual

About a year ago I wrote a piece about how stupid it was that a 6 year old boy was suspended after complaints about “sexual harassment” because he kissed the hand of a little girl he liked in his class.
