NY Times Announces Addition of First ‘Gender Editor’ to Its Staff

(News Busters) Here’s another entry for the “Just When You Thought You’d Seen It All Department.” On Tuesday, The New York Times proclaimed that the newspaper had hired a “gender editor” whose task is to “re-imagine the news through an inter-sectional lens.”

Jessica Bennett, a former editor for Newsweek and author of Feminist Fight Club: A Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace — an “illustrated battle manual for fighting sexism at work” — was motivated to apply for the post due to the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

According to an article written by Teen Voguecontributor Brittney McNamara, Bennett will be “leading the charge in a new initiative to see the news through this lens” and “connect the dots on gender coverage in an important way.”

Those quotes came from Jodi Rudoren, editorial director of NYT Global, who also stated:

One of the things I grappled with for a long time as I tried to figure out who should be our gender editor and what our gender initiative should look like is, really, what is gender and what are gender issues?

I felt like we had all this great coverage around the newsroom and around the world that I would categorize as gender, and I knew we weren’t doing what we should be doing or could be doing to link up these different stories and different projects.

Bennett — who Rudoren described as an “idea factory” — has worked as a freelancer with the Times on stories related to gender and culture, McNamara reported. In her new role, which she officially starts on October 30, Bennett wants to have an impact in not just one section of the paper.

The paper added that Bennett will lead “a multi-pronged initiative to deepen the engagement of female readers around the world…”

    Take a good look at Jessica ” Jesse ” Bennett and you should be able to determine exactly what orientation it is. These people will never stop with their in your face attitude and tactics. Since the NYT is the rag of record for all the left wing Socialists in the country, you can expect the rest of the propaganda outlets to fall into line with them. The time is fast approaching when we will be forced to take another look at the risks imposed with the 1st Amendment and instead of focusing on the 2nd we had better start worrying about the 1st.

      What is truly amazing is that trans people make up less than 1% of the population yet they are changing laws to accomodate them.

  • Al Chemist

    While you’re at it, why not go ahead and hire a Homosexual editor, a Lesbian editor, a Transvestite editor, a Pedophile editor, a Black editor, a White editor, an Indian editor, a Chinese Editor, a Japanese editor, and so on. Oh, and let’s not forget the assistant-editors, a Black Homosexual editor, a White Homosexual editor and so on. Why, the assistant editors alone could morph into hundreds. Go NY Times!

      What they need is a facts editor. Just print the facts without bias and let us come to our own conclusions. Stop sticking your personal agendas down our throats.

      • just care

        I’ll bet that idea never entered their mind . What a bunch of hacks .

      • chocopot

        That ship sailed a LONG time ago…

      Budget constraints…

    • chocopot

      Please do not give them any ideas!

    • taliesin319

      Please consult yhe longest acronym in the world, now up to 57 genders at last count. Disgard the last 3 letters,viz.,WTF Most normal folk shout out the words when they get to the end of the acronym.

    • I like your logic Al.They are so desperate for new customers they would do anything to get 10 more people to buy their toilet paper disguised as a News[sic]paper.WTF…do you think they’ll run the story about their other new free-thinking unbiased political editor who was just outed as a Dumbocrat operative who is exposed on tape he was hired to make sure the NYT on-line content WOULD be slanted, biased and even made up if need be to trash Republicand, Conservatives NAH! That story qualifies as real news

  • stevenlehar

    Boys are boys and girls are girls. Vive la différence!

    • Papa Bear

      Yeah ain’t it grand??? Personally I believe if God made anything better than a woman he kept it for himself!!!

    • jim_shipley

      Liberals can’t seem to see the difference so lets hope they will die out soon.

      • VG…and since sperm doesn’t work when deposited in the bung hole there is hope for total extinction by 2075.

        • MyRoseHasTHORNS

          They adopt, foster, use surrogates AND in vitro or turkey basters…. Extinction is a long way off, sad but true!

          • Josephine Harkay

            We have to be careful when talking about same-sex couples adopting, using IVF, or hiring surrogates. Heterosexual couples do the very same things at times.

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    Just what they needed, more bias.

    • chocopot

      Can they really be MORE biased?

      • OHHOLYBEJESUS! Yes, they could morph into a Clinton sycophant cretin. Duh! My mistake, they’re already one.

  • Donald Lindsey

    What kind of DRUGS are these idiots taking, if boren as a male you are male if born a female you female idiots.

    • chocopot

      Those on the Left are quite delusional, in case you have not yet noticed…

      • Donald Lindsey

        notice that for many years now

        • Chi Sam

          Noticed, stupid. Simple verb tense is called that for a reason.

          • Donald Lindsey

            You are just Another stupid ignoramus democrat grammar police with nothing to say

      • I was thinking it is a bad dream from which I would awaken soon, but, NOOOOOOOOOOO! Women are such beautiful creatures, and I love them, and WILL always love them, until I draw my last breath of air! In case you are wondering, I am a MAN, and I was never confused about it!

        • chocopot

          Ditto to that!

        • Josephine Harkay

          Let us be thankful to God if we are normal in body and mind. The truth is that some people have a psychological/emotional defect as far as their sexuality is concerned. They deny the latter and claim it to be a normal variety of human sexuality occurring in nature. Then we could also say that the Down syndrome in babies born with it is also normal. I hope and pray that some day medical science will find the cause, and perhaps the cure, of all sexual/gender disorders.

    • Chi Sam

      You spell the simple word ‘born’ with five letters…and you’re calling another person an idiot?

      What a stupid jerk you’re must me.

      • Josephine Harkay

        Would you kindly read again your second sentence?

        • Chi Sam

          That’s too funny! Good thing Stupid would not have realized I did that.

      • William Watson

        You grammar Nazis are really tiresome…..

        They are simple typo errors most of the time….

        Get a life!

        • William Watson

          Just saw your stupid mistake on the last word!

      • mioahu

        Well, seems you must be a stupid jerk too, since you misspelled the last word in your sentence ? AHAHAHHAHA

        • Chi Sam

          That’s perfect irony. Fortunately for me, Donald could not possibly notice and beat me over the head with it.

          Rather than give the ideal, and obvious first choice of response, as you have done, this idiotic drunk is sticking to his standard script.

          Stupid men seem to enjoy being wrong.

        Back on your knees Alt-gender!!

        young stupid democrat stupid moron you are, have you ever served this Country are a yellow-belly coward like the rest

  • Gregg Parker

    I always thought irrelevant had a threshold and once you crossed it you arrived. Why are they bothering to go farther into the room than necessary? Stopped reading anything from them a long time ago. I see they’re still printing and posting anyway… silly people

    • Naval Lint

      I had to stop and think for a minute….but isn’t there a requirement for a doctor to be present for any “gender editing”? Then I remembered that once, I was a fat black woman. Today I’ll identify as a straight xicebo from Altair. I wonder what tomorrow will bring, besides drifts of snowflakes?

      • Gregg Parker

        As the world renown doctor that I identify as today, splicing people is as easy as a roll of duct tape and a good saw! I specialize in grafting insect eyes to people but so far I haven’t had too many takers and business has been off… perhaps a career move is in order… Maybe an Indian doctor with hundreds of degrees!! Just thinking outside the box… thanks for thinking at all… it’s a open field out there these days for thinking people…

        • Naval Lint

          Why would any xicebo wish to be any other gender? And, re the “open field”, true thinking people (of ANY stellar system!) always understand the difference between reality and unreality…except for us xicebos!

          • Gregg Parker

            Oh no! I was insensitive to another life form! I’m pealing already!… I… I….——-.

          • Naval Lint

            Damn! Looks like I’ve stressed another human! You Earthlings are so delicate! Xicebos are much stronger…and CANNOT be offended! Heal yourself and be at peace, human!

          • Gregg Parker

            I’ll come out of my safe space when I’m good and ready and then I’m going to burn something that belongs to someone else… and maybe get some new sneakers while I’m at it.. the ones I got last time have a smudge on em! .. and then get some lunch…

  • kitten

    If you were born a boy YOU ARE A BOY. If you were born a girl YOU ARE A GIRL. I will refer to you as such

    • chocopot

      How un-PC of you! LOL!

    • Gregg Parker

      In California that can now land you in jail… we need two walls!

      • Apparently, it is just in nursing home and the like! I may be wrong.

          so far.. the camel nose always has a camel behind it…

    I believe the NYT is already feminist but this appointment will ensure that no male will ever get a look in again.

  • Harry Pearson

    With all this talk about males – females and ???, there already is a term for items not male or female. That term is IT. Now, if these folks want to be ITs, that’s fine by me.

    • I just remembered an old Red Burton’s joke: If Ben-Hur had been Him, he would have been IT… very apropos even in the 60’s. People still had their sense of humor then. Today if he told his joke in Cali-lala Land they would arrest him and charge him with Felony- Hurting a Cupcake’s Feelings.

  • Gregg Parker

    For an editor it sure made some nasty spices on its own “gender” whatever the he11 it is….

  • richard black

    consider the source…this is why your little boys are dressing up in dresses !!!

  • Alibaba

    And that’s suppose to stop them becoming irrelevant?

  • jim_shipley

    The snowflake drifts keep getting deeper and deeper.

  • You people are very truly and absolutely, out of you F*****G minds! You have taken this BULL**** way too far, it is time to put an end to this sickness! These gender confused individuals need mental health treatment, and nothing more!

  • J Whitehurst

    And they wonder why their subscribers keep dwindling. The times are changing and they (NYT) are driving themselves to extinction.

    • Yippee yahoo!! 💩💩💩☠☠☠. The only thing that rag is good for is warmth for the bums in Central Park. But honestly if they do go under, it will be like saying goodbye to a dog turd being scrapped off your shoes.👏👏👏

  • Sharon Melvin

    Boys are always boys and girls are always girls no matter what parts are removed or artificially added. Treat the mental illness of gender dysphoria and avoid giving hormones which have side effects. Suicide rate is very high in people who have had gender reassignment surgery. The underlying mental issues are still there!

  • Gerri

    For crying out loud, gender is man or woman!!!! Stop your nonsense!!! Geeze, you can’t make this stuff up!!!!! NYT should be shut down, between their fake news ,obvious bias and now this drivel ,what kind of newspaper are they. Folks, line your bird cages,etc ( if you don’t mind insulting your bird).

    • Hillary the Cankled Liar

      “A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.
      Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.
      They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations”

      • Lili J

        Knew it ALL along

  • JR

    Next the NY Times will be hiring a Jihadist the cover the news through the lens of Islamic Extremism.

  • Hillary the Cankled Liar

    “re-imagine the news through an inter-sectional lens.”…Only alt-leftists could come up with this drivel!!!! Just more social-engineering lecturing coming folks.

  • Michelle Greer

    They have enough trouble keeping he and she straight as it is, since spell check doesn’t check if a person was referred to as he or she previously and I have seen ‘he’ become ‘she’ and more often ‘she’ become ‘he’, so maybe the overall quality o the printed articles will actually improve now that they are so worried someone might be offended a typo.

  • Mark

    “All Genders Matter”??? NO!!!
    BOTH Genders Matter…there are only TWO !!!

  • mioahu

    NY Slimescan go and …. whatever they do in the multigender society … themselves

  • Roy Veteto

    this is ok with me for i don’t want a tran being denied being able to read your rag so i will stop doing it.

  • Josephine Harkay

    As a people we have become more divided than ever. All our nation needs is an ET hostile invasion to come to our senses. Then I bet our transgenders would not make an issue about what bathroom they may use. (What was wrong with the bathrooms they used say 10 years ago? Nobody ever complained then, why now?)

  • Louie Rey

    The fact that this was even discussed shows how completely off the rails The Times has become as it’s now going to only subscribe to politically correct stories. This is totally insane but by the same token this is what this country DEvolved into.
