It’s a new blog or website or both (a blog is always a website but a website isn’t always a blog). Tell all your friends.
Jadehawk argues that feminism, secularism and skepticism all need each other.
Skepticism and secularism need feminism; feminism needs secularism and skepticism. The reason for this is that all three deal with removing or restricting the harmful influence of untrue ideas on people’s lives, even if each does so from a different perspective and with a different focus. And in many cases, the different perspectives can work together to achieve the specific goals of each movement better than they would be able in isolation from each other.
I would put that a little bit differently – I would say they can help or benefit each other, as opposed to needing each other. There’s less to defend that way. Since this subject is a hot button one right now, it’s good not to have too much to defend.
I’m angry, you see, angry that feminists are being excluded from organized skepticism and the secular movement. There have been many events leading up to this, but the latest slap to the face came from Ron Lindsay of CFI at the Women in Secularism conference. Feel free to read his own words on the matter or Rebecca Watson’s reaction or the tl;dr version: OMFG MEN ARE BEINGSILENCED!
I decided that I needed to stop waiting for someone else to give me a platform and that I can’t trust anyone else to have my own best interests at heart. So I asked some (wonderfully brilliant) friends of mine if they’d be willing to contribute to a blog project that has one goal: give godless feminists a place to freely discuss what they want.
Ah, there you go, it is a blog!
