Best of Before Freethought Blogs

From Miley Cyrus' Occupy Video

If you’re interested in learning more about what I do, I recommend you click on the speaking tab above, it includes most of the speeches and media by/about/including me.

The following are the most popular posts from my blog:

Ron Paul

Last December, I wrote a post in which I spoke about Ron Paul in less than glowing terms.  This earned me a lot of hate.  And a lot of views.

The Original Post

The Collection of Hate Commentary
(Warning: Violence, Rape, “Cunts”)

Best of Hate Commentary as read by a Hippo

My Song about Ron Paul:

Sarah Palin and Gabby Giffords

When Gabby Giffords got shot, I wrote about how the violent rhetoric of politics, particularly from the right, is bad for America. Post here.

Sexual Harassment and TAM

I have weighed in on this several times — I was harassed at TAM last year, and the problem was addressed very quickly, but I still have problems with the way DJ talks about the issue.

TAM 8: Slut Shaming

The Sexist Speaker Problem

TAM9: How I was harassed and how DJ dealt with it. My main takeaways of the online discussion, my angry fact-correction of DJ, and Why Women Don’t Report Harassment.

Eddie Kritzer: The Scam Artist

A “manager” or “agent” or “disgusting troll who used my business contact to actually call me to talk about having sex with me”, depending on who you ask. Advice: if someone asks you for a fee upfront to read your screenplay, they are not legit.  Further advice: If you want to hate someone, I highly recommend reading the disgusting e-mails he sent to me.  Warning: Graphic.

    I know I have seen some of these before so I look forward to seeing what you bring here.

    In fact I’m pretty sure I’ve pissed someone off with one of your posts on Facebook somewhere…*Goes digging*

    Also try “Rhetorician”. I think it has more of a Christopher Hitchens or a Molly Ivins ring to it…

    Aw man – unlike the others in the new crop, I have not already been following you – so now I’ve got all this new content to read. I’m already sold via your ‘Why does anyone like Ron Paul’ post, now I’m going to have to dig through aaaaaall this stuff.

    Reading FtB really IS turning into a full-time job!

    Your Ron Paul song is now stuck in my head. You’ll have to make another song to replace it.

    I think I should be ashamed of myself for how amusing I’m finding the Eddie Kritzer stuff to be. If it weren’t for the fact that he’s actually gotten money from some (more likely many) people I think I’d actually be laughing at his crazed antics.

    I love that when you google Eddie Kritzer (without the word ‘scam’) the second result is “Eddie Kritzer Leave Me Alone.”

    If you have played World of Warcraft, imagine the male goblin voice reading Eddie Kritzer’s messages. It’s hilarious.

    I wandered over to this page after seeing PZ sing (ok, write) your praises on pharyngula…

    He is correct, Ms. Miller. You rock!

    I precisely wanted to appreciate you once more. I am not sure the things I could possibly have implemented without those creative ideas shared by you relating to this problem. It truly was a terrifying condition in my opinion, nevertheless viewing this professional tactic you dealt with that made me to leap with delight. I’m thankful for the information and trust you find out what a powerful job you are always providing training other individuals using your webblog. Probably you’ve never got to know any of us.

    Oh, right, that’s one of the reasons she is awesome | Pharyngula

    [...] Miller has posted a “Best of” article, and reminded me that she doesn’t like Ron Paul and her vagina is destroying America. No [...]
