Imagine No Religion 2- A Recap

Okay, I’m back! With a nice little bundle of posts for the coming week. First things first, though, as promised, I wanted to write a little recap of the Imagine No Religion 2 conference, and a few of the things that stood out to me over the course of what was, all in all, a …

This Is Awesome


Check out Cathy Brennan’s latest attempt to insult me via her new, hilariously incompetent tumblr, radicalfeministmemes: In the words of Michael Halila: Watch out for the new radfem transphobe tactic of making their opponents seem both awesome and attractive. It, um. My only quibble is I’ve technically only been kicking Y chromosome ass since 2010.

Spot The White Savior

So there’s this person called Amy Dentata. She thinks atheism is racist, and didn’t like my “God Does Not Love Trans People” post. So she wrote a response. More or less same kind of argument Be Scofield made. But Amy Dentata doesn’t play fair. In the exchange that followed in the comment thread, she deleted …

Why I Bother


So I’m enjoying the glow of victory today. Last night, our team, The Gallifreyan High Council, emerged as Time Lords Victorious in the Vancouver leg of the Cross-Canada Skeptical Smackdown quiz night. In addition to myself, the trans-feminist skeptic-ish atheist blogger, we had Joe Fulgham, co-host of the Caustic Soda science and pop-culture podcast, Xavier …

Sacrificing Privilege

This is a repost of an article originally posted on Skepchick. I felt I needed a bit of a day off. I mentioned yesterday the exhaustion I was feeling from having to do a whole lot of fighting, on a whole lot of fronts, in a very short period of time… and then along came …

The Abridged “Sincerely, Natalie Reed”


Sorry, I’m a bit busy with some important stuff for tomorrow (that will probably alienate whichever readers I didn’t already alienate by linking “Die Cis Scum”) and don’t quite have time for the post I’d had planned for this afternoon. So instead I’m going to offer a little something for all the “tl:dr” folks who …

Fun Video On Cynthia Nixon’s Choice, And An Announcement (I’m giving a live talk!)

This is a little late, and a little less than topical, but as many of you may have heard, earlier this month Cynthia Nixon (an actress known for her role on Sex And The City) made a very open declaration that for her, being a lesbian was in fact a choice. This directly challenged the …
