Around FtB

I’m still trying to get caught up…on sleep, on fluids, on FtB. Miri deplores dictionary racism. You know, any time you run to a dictionary to get a definition of a topic in an argument, you might as well admit…you’ve lost. Lilandra has annoyed Ken Ham greatly. I approve. Ashley talks about accessiblity and mental …

Who are these guys?

Hey, we added a couple of male bloggers here…I thought we were supposed to be man-hatin’ banshee feminists? It’s surprising but true, though, that some people with a Y chromosome and a penis can actually care about social justice. Say howdy to Ally Fogg and our very newest addition, Tauriq Moosa, who helpfully explains how …

Around FtB

What’s going on, gang? Stephanie discusses a common fallacy about harassment. Avicenna finds an MRA woman making excuses for pedophilia. I need to shower now. Aron debated a creationist rapper. I’m hoping it was a rap battle. Ashley is getting all miscellaneous up in her place. Brianne is in Belize. I am envious. Black Skeptics …

Everyone must say hello to Yemisi Ilesanmi

Freethoughtblogs has a brand new addition, YEMMYnisting, who is “Proudly Feminist, Proudly Bisexual and Proudly Atheist.” I think she might just fit in.

Around FtB

Whatcha doin’, readers? There’s stuff on FtB, like always. Miri is writing about beauty. Avicenna makes an interesting observation about American news coverage of terrorist violence: if it’s foreign, it’s bloodless, if it’s domestic, we stare at the victims. Taslima is advertising sex tourism for married men. Kate questions the dogma about MPD. Mano notes …

Thank you, crowepps

Bad news: I’m informed offline by Mattir that fellow hordeling crowepps has passed away, not particularly expectedly. She wasn’t the most loquacious commenter here, and I didn’t know her at all aside from reading what she wrote here. But I always liked what she had to say. She was funny: I am boggled by the …

New Rule

You’ve all seen it, the increasingly common inept attempt people make to defuse valid criticism of their untenable positions. Most recent sighting for me was this comment at The Mary Sue, which consisted mainly of the commenter saying that no way would any man have pulled the “fake geek girl” routine on Rae Johnston and …

Did Richard Carrier have to remind me…

…that I was responsible for the Thunderf00t fiasco here? I don’t pay any attention to his videos any more, but Richard carried out an amazingly thorough dissection of one of his recent videos that, as seems to be common nowadays, rants and raves about Freethoughtblogs, feminism, me, and of all things, minorities in atheism. I …

A subtle warning

Both Hank Fox and Token Skeptic are leaving for Patheos. I should warn you what happens to those who leave us.

EllenBeth Wachs recounts her experiences

She has posted a summary of her experience commenting here — entirely from her perspective of course, but worth a look. My position: I think she was completely wrong on the Adria Richards issue. She was looking at it entirely from the position of a conference organizer, who prioritizes not rocking the boat and keeping …
