Outside of the radical feminist nonsense

glenn

Also yay Jaclyn Glenn is promising yet another video attacking “radical feminists” yet again for all this “atheist infighting” that is apparently all their fault. Yay Jaclyn Glenn is putting an end to atheist infighting by attacking atheists who are also feminists. Wait, what? OK combining video ideas. One comprehensive video on atheist infighting should …

Amazing how exactly?

amaz

Why I don’t love the “atheist community” chapter 782. A public Facebook post by “The Amazing Atheist” who is sadly unamazing. Jaclyn Glenn shared it in a public post of her own.

The chorus of leftwing women complaining

Well we all know the rules. Women are either fuckworthy, or killworthy. There is nothing else. (Just this morning on Twitter someone called me “old superfluous prune” – meaning, I should be dead, because I’m too old and ugly to be still alive using up resources. Old ugly men are ok because men have multiple …

This? This is just a very heavy lunch box.

So the Russian separatists are busily hiding and destroying all the evidence. If neutral parties show up and try to stop them doing that, they fire warning shots, and the neutral parties leave. The OSCE was trying to gain access to one part of the large crash site but the commander of a rebel unit, …

Is it a little or a lot?

There was a pretty good Fresh Air yesterday based on a book, Trans Bodies, Trans Selves. The new book Trans Bodies, Trans Selves is a collection of essays describing the varied experiences of transgender people — and the social, political and medical issues they face. It’s written by and for transgender and gender-nonconforming people. The idea was inspired by …

Before you have to slap her

bill

And I’ve been trying to get to this all day. Honestly, Jaclyn Glenn and Dave Muscato between them have ruined my schedule. Bill Maher @billmaher 23h Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who’s trying to kill u – u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap …

Brilliant

daw

I love it when people who have zero experience of a certain kind of prejudicial treatment, because they’re not in the category of person who gets that kind of prejudicial treatment, gets all contemptuously dismissive about that kind of prejudicial treatment. I just love it. It’s so clever, so thoughtful, so reasonable, so everything a mature intellectual …

Guest post: The passion burns brighter

Originally a comment by Krasnaya Koshka on Feminist atheists are divisive!!1 When I was a Young White Lesbian, I fought for a lot of YWL shit. I had severe myopia. But I was, at least, fighting for something not already included in my everyday life. Then I had a Black gf. Wow wow wow, there were …

Remember why the good lord made your eyes

plagiar

Another thing about that Facebook post of Jaclyn Glenn’s, that Dave Muscato admiringly posted on his own wall (and then took down along with all the comments) – she didn’t write most of it herself. She took it from a comment on her video (the Atheism + pussies one) and constructed her post around it, …

Big tent atheism

bigtent

Big big big tent. Room for all the atheists. Except feminists of course – feminists are shit, because they’re so divisive. [Description: part of a page at the Richard Dawkins Foundation, promoting Jaclyn Glenn's latest video.]
