A Voice for Me – Once a Good Girl Goes Bad

There is a consistent problem within the various MRA spheres particularly the Indian one bemoaning “Women/Girls these Days”. Basically? MRA don’t like what’s happened to women. No longer are they docile. No longer do their lives revolve around men and how to please them. It’s not that men’s power has been eroded but women have …

Phone Blogging – WTF White House Security!

If you haven’t read it already, I suggest reading Seema Jilani’s piece about how the White House treated her and how she felt it was racist. I think it’s pretty racist… Just “saying”. I mean we can blame Obama or you know blame the real problem. I am sure the security isn’t “racist”. They are …

I Get Mail – Multiculturalism

Dear Avicenna Other people have the idea that minority groups are allowed to be homogenous, but that white people have to be forced into being ashamed of who they are. How can one person claim that multiculturalism is for non-white people while not demonising white pride.

Religion vs Prosperity

It’s easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than the rich to get to heaven. And partly that’s because there is a correlation between a lack of organised faith and affluence as indicated by Kazi Stastna.

How to Forge Your Own Chains

If you haven’t read Under the Banner of Heaven, I urge you to do so. The Fundamentalist Church of Mormonism has a major problem. You see? There is a massive onus on “Individual Revelation”. This caused a split from the Church of Mormon. Basically? All members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints are …

How to Send A Message

Child abuse is something that’s very common among non-white communities in the west. There is an almost casual nature to it and it’s often funny to “us” because white people don’t hit their kids. We see it as a reason as to why white children are so “badly behaved” while children from our communities are …

Allah Needs Help

I must be dreaming, because I had to ask myself “Is this real life? Or just fantasy?”. Taslima covered it better than me, but if you haven’t been paying attention to Bangladesh then now is a good time to go read up about it. Caught in a landslide of sudden rising Islamic fundamentalism, there has been …

This is Why We Need Science in Schools

If you haven’t heard it yet, Zack Kopplin tried and failed to get the “Louisiana Science Education Act” repealed. For those who are unaware, this was passed into being by fellow brown person and all round arsehole Bobby Jindal. And it’s a piece of legislation that allows for the teaching of anything from literal creationism …

Alternative Dentistry

I required some dental work today and had an interesting conversation with the lady who was doing some work on my teeth. As many people who have seen me on the SSA hangout or on one of Ed Brayton’s, they would know that I am one of those old guys with braces. I wore them …

Gay Weddings First? What Next? Humanist Ones?

In the UK you can choose to have a Humanist ceremony, but outside of Scotland? All marriage must involve a legally recognised service. These are religious in nature. Scotland however voted in 2005 to allow “humanist” weddings. It is one of the six nations in the world where this is allowed. It lets a couple …
