On Monday night I joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss Nancy Pelosi's train wreck of an interview re John Conyers, and the broader climate of relations between the sexes in this difficult time. Click below to watch:
For an example of what I meant by the "hyper-sexualization" of society, consider this approving piece in The New York Times:
How teenage boys (and younger) wearing makeup are affecting beauty norms https://t.co/F8je5M2ozU— The New York Times (@nytimes) November 25, 2017
Twenty years ago, when child beauty-pageant competitor JonBenet Ramsey was murdered, coastal sophisticates mocked flyover rubes for tarting up their grade-school daughters in powder and rouge.

If you're a member of The Mark Steyn Club and you disagree with me, feel free to shred me in the comments.
What is the Mark Steyn Club? Well, aside from offering access to the comments section, it's an Audio Book of the Month Club - or, if you prefer, a radio-serial club: The second half of our Scott Fitzgerald double-bill starts later this week. It's also a discussion group of lively people around the world from Cook County to the Cook Islands on the great questions of our time - from war and politics to faith and demography. It's a video poetry and live music club. We don't (yet) have a clubhouse, but we do have a newsletter and other benefits. And, if you've got some kith or kin who might like the sound of all that and more, for this holiday season only we have a special Christmas Gift Membership that includes a welcome gift of a handsome Steyn hardback or a CD set personally autographed by yours truly. More details here.
