Her (recent) conference assault

Ashley Paramore has released a much-watch video about her recent conference assault at the 2012 Amazing Meeting in Las Vegas. Sadly, the adjective “recent” is necessary since this is hardly the first or second or third time Ashley has had this unfortunate experience at one of the many atheist and skeptical conferences she has attended. …

Richard Dawkins disappoints me yet again

From Veronica at Purple NoiZe: Good for you Lucy. Good for you. There are numerous women who have, but I’m glad you’re not one of them.
