About one in five Americans now lack regular access to local media coverage. Studies show this is bad for politics, municipal debt -- and even the environment.

In the 1970s, the stated endgame of radical feminism was a total abolition of gender and a society in which everyone is androgynous (thus, "being fully human").

They actively deconstructed biological essentialism and the idea that females had to be "womanly."

Four decades later, so-called feminists are "celebrating sisterhood" by reifying tired sexist stereotypes of womanliness and biological essentialism, while hating on non-binary folks who are now embodying radical feminism.
