Welcome, Savage Lovecast listeners!

As a longtime fan of the Savage Lovecast, I had an absolute blast recording the podcast with Dan. If you found my blog through it, I assume you came here because you found me vaguely interesting.* I talk about a little bit of everything here – mostly atheism, feminism, science, and sex – but here …

Why is the G-spot still such a mystery?

A couple of weeks ago I called out a woman on Dan Savage’s podcast who asserted that we know exactly what the structure of the G-spot is, that all women have it, and that every woman can ejaculate. I called her out because scientists haven’t reached a consensus on the G-spot. They’re not sure what …

I’m a sucker for terrible Christian movies

I want to see this so badly: From the video description: “The Waiting Game is about a guy who saves himself for marriage only to have his fiance leave him on their wedding day. He must now decide if it’s worth it to wait again.” What the movie is really about: only getting married because …

Omfg Tim Minchin!

Yesterday I went to the Sasquatch music festival out in Eastern Washington. It’s held at the Gorge Amphitheater, which is a ridiculously beautiful venue.Though I shortly nicknamed it “The Gouge.” Seriously, $5.25 for a coke? $10.00 for a beer?! The worst part was you were stuck buying bottled water even if you brought a water …

I love finding out about the government ignoring the separation of church and state when spending my taxes! Bleh.

Well, I’m impressed

This amazing video was made in response to an article in Newsweek that claimed Grand Rapids, MI was a dying city: I think what is really shows is that people in Grand Rapids have way too much time on their hands – but it’s awesome nonetheless. (Via Slog)

I have one last bribe

The fundraiser for Camp Quest ends on May 31st, and Team Awesome is still behind PZ by about $1,800 dollars. But I think we can do it, especially since many of us are resorting to bribery if we win: * Since PZ Myers has offered to shave his beard into a hideous ’80s mustache if …

This certainly isn’t comforting

I don’t usually like bringing up especially personal stuff here, but I just couldn’t resist blogging this. For reasons I don’t care to explain at the moment, I made an appointment with UW’s mental health clinic. While you can request a referral online, you still need to do a phone screening before you can go …

Know any student atheist activists?

I’d also ask if they want to win some money, but hey, what student doesn’t? The Secular Student Alliance is giving a bunch of awards this year, with some nice cash prizes to go along with them. There are both individual and group awards. Have you done something awesome? Has your club? Then you should …

The Unbelievers: New Atheism and the Old Boy’s Club

I highly recommend this article by Victoria Bekiempis at Bitch Media. It’s one of the most well-rounded, unbiased, well-researched article about the gender problem in the atheist movement that I’ve seen written by an outsider. And it has a fabulous graphic:I particularly like the closing paragraph: So let’s reframe. For every mention of Hitchens, counter …
