Why it matters

imposter

It ought to be obvious why it matters that an imposter is sending out messages under my name, but the fans of the imposter are pretending it’s just a harmless joke and I’m a whiney idiot for objecting. That’s just a sample of the pretending it’s just a harmless joke and I’m a whiney idiot …

Some romantic victory over a single virus

Helen Epstein in the New York Review of Books says polio eradication campaigns aren’t such a good idea. Even if they weren’t mixed up with CIA spying, they wouldn’t be such a good idea, she says. They might might seem like a good idea, but… The killings in Pakistan—which played out in a series of …

Some tropes

I drew up a list of some of the anti-feminist tropes I’ve been seeing lately. (They’re not overtly anti-feminist – they’re more “this is how feminism is supposed to be done” – but they’re so crude and wrong and clueless that in fact they are anti-feminist.

You have to rub your hands together like a nefarious villain

No message in the event

The Washington Post takes a look at how atheist parents try to comfort their children after (our all-too-frequent) mass shootings. As so many millions of Americans turn to clergy and prayers to help their children sort out the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, parents like Drizin do not. They don’t agonize over interpreting God’s will or message …

We are blighting the entire concept of social justice and equality

Holy shit. Al Stefanelli has really jumped the shark. He’s done a video to say how horrible the Bad FTBers are, and he doesn’t hold back. He starts with a bang: So what the hell is wrong with these people? Who? Well, PZ Myers, Ophelia Benson, Stefanie [sic] Zvan, Rebecca Watson, to a degree Jennifer …
