New Counter Cultured Article on MILSPO Project

Yesterday I published an article at Counter Cultured about a great organization that empowers military spouses to launch their own businesses. Below is an excerpt:

New Counter Cultured Article: UCSD Professor Makes Students Strip for Final Exam

I’ve penned a new article at Counter Cultured today about the latest controversy transpiring at my alma mater involving a leftist professor. Here’s more about it:

UC-San Diego professor Ricardo Dominguez is coming under fire for requiring his students to strip for a final exam.

Dominguez, an associate professor of visual arts at our alma mater, is being rightfully criticized for subjecting his students to partaking in erotic behavior. Dominguez has taught a course called Visual Arts 104A: Performing the Self for nearly 11 years. Additionally, he was hired by UCSD in 2005 and awarded tenure in 2009. According to the class syllabus, students are required to perform eight gestures including  “a gesture that traces, outlines or speaks about your ‘erotic self(s).’ ” One student’s mother – who wishes to remain anonymous – helped bring this class to light according to 10News:

New Counter Cultured Article: Go to Liberty Farm!

I’ve penned a new article up at Counter Cultured today. It’s about my recent visit to Liberty Farm in Paris, Virginia. Check it out!

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Liberty Farm in Paris, Virginia. Its owner is freedom farmer Martha Boneta, who’s a household name here in the Commonwealth.

Situated roughly 65 miles west of the nation’s capital, Liberty Farm is like a small slice of heaven marked by green pastures, clear blue skies, and a menagerie of cute farm animals that are rescued. When you think of the quintessential American farm, Liberty Farm definitely comes to mind.

New Counter Cultured Article: Johns Hopkins Student Battles Campus Leftists

Yesterday we published an interview with John Hopkins student Andrew Guernsey up at Counter Cultured.

Here’s an excerpt:

The First Amendment is under siege in our country today. From articulating support for natural marriage to being politically incorrect, respectful disagreement over issues and intellectual diversity are strongly discouraged today.

One college student, Andrew Guernsey, has gone out of his way to challenge the “tolerance brigade” at Johns Hopkins University following its student government’s decision to bar Chick-fil-A from campus. As a result, this incident has garnered a lot of media attention. Andrew penned an op-ed in National Review and subsequently appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss why campus statists are wrong to suppress campus free speech. 

I recently interviewed Andrew to learn more about what happened on his campus and how he has played a role in fostering a discussion of socially conservative ideas with his peers.

New Counter Cultured: Crayle Vanest Is Great Campus Carry Advocate

I interviewed Crayle Vanest of Students for Concealed Carry about gun rights on campus. Check it out!

Here at Counter Cultured, we are inclined to give our fellow right-minded Millennials the spotlight if they are doing big things. Our movement grows when we have more passionate voices–not fewer voices. One Millennial worth profiling is Crayle Vanest, a 22-year-old Indiana University senior passionate about the Second Amendment.  Crayle currently serves as the Midwest Regional Director of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

GH: Why and when did you become a passionate advocate for concealed carry on campus?

CV: I have been passionate about all forms of self-defense since I was 14 years old, and began advocating for campus carry when I was 18. I’ve always enjoyed my independence from a young age, even it was just walking to a friend’s house a few miles away, but even with hand-to-hand self-defense knowledge, I was always aware that some people out there were just faster and stronger than me.

NRA News Appearance on Article Criticizing Everytown for Gun Safety

NRA News

I appeared on NRA News on Tuesday, March 24th, 2015, to discuss the problem with Everytown for Gun Safety’s latest misinformation campaign targeting young women who support gun rights and concealed carry. Here’s more on the appearance:

At the Counter Cultured blog, Gabriella Hoffman has written about Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, and its assertion that young women can’t handle firearms. A series of tweets from the gun control group characterizes young women as drunk, irresponsible, and a danger to themselves. Hoffman describes the responsible behavior of young gun owners, and the effect of reduced crime from concealed carry on campus. Originally aired on NRA News Cam & Co 03/24/15.
