Hypocrisy and the Intolerance of Religion

Dear Saudi Arabia I understand we don’t see eye to eye. I know you have a rich history and a rich culture, I also know that you are setting fire to it. It is not the decadent west destroying Arab culture.

Yet More Disturbing News Out of Syria

The Hague-based OPCW said President Bashar al-Assad’s government had agreed to accept the mission and had promised to provide security in areas under its control. The use in war of “asphyxiating, poisonous or other gases” – both of which can be produced by chlorine and ammonia – is banned by the Geneva Protocol, of which …

Like a Hugo Baws – Vox Day 2

I wrote about my take on the Hugo Awards and the fact Vox Day was nominated. It’s simple, if he is nominated and in the interest of free speech, I can write an article  pointing out he is a racist, sexist, homophobe and all round terrible human being and that we should not vote for …

Appropriation of Nerd Culture By The Wimminz

Oh Tauriq Moosa? Will you never learn?  If you argue for a world that is kind and decent and inclusive there will be people who throw their toys out of the pram and make a fuss? You may not call yourself a Nerd, but I do. I actually took umbrage to PZ Myers mocking a …

We May Have Been Christian, But Now We Are Human

This Easter saw a rather distasteful little issue rear its ugly head. It’s no real secret that the UK is a Christian nation on paper, but that it has made massive and useful strides towards a multicultural and secular society. But this is not enough for David Cameron and Eric Pickles. David Cameron decided to …

Save Afusat’s Daughters

We are being urged to fight the scourge of Female Genital Mutilation but how can we do so if we expect our teachers and doctors to notice kids who are at risk and try to protect them and inform parents but not if our government itself is unwilling to do so? I have even opposed …

Theadore Beale and the Hugos

Theadore Beale aka Vox Day is up for a Hugo Award. This is just bizarre. See Vox Day is for want of a better description a rather despicable human being. He’s got the trifecta. Beloved of the Stormfront, the man’s a racist.  A darling of the MRA and Pick Up Artist communities, the man’s an …
