Nothing gets past reason

Alex Gabriel of the Heresy Club tipped me off that the UCLU Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society has done some brilliant, necessary, and dirt-cheap outreach for rationality on their university campuses: giving away free condoms with pro-rationalism stickers attached.

Condom with UCLU sticker: "Nothing gets past reason"

I’d love to see this initiative get imported to this side of the pond. Not only does it promote safe sex in a place you damn well know will be rife with young adults whose hormones have outpaced their maturity (look at any university cafeteria and you’ll see at least one kid with a plate of nothing but bacon), but it also spreads the word that there’s a rationalist society for “people like you” if you’ve never had any peers with common interests in atheism / humanism with whom you could socialize. Thus leading to increased chances for hooking up, so it’s a self-sustaining loop.

Well done, Godless of Gower Street. The Universities of London are safer and saner for your efforts.
