Creepy ol’ Ben Stein


Remember Ben Stein? Lazy character actor best known for his mind-numbing drone, reactionary conservative who writes dull screeds on bogus economics, the creationist voice of Expelled? He’s in the news again, when we’d all rather he just goes away. He wrote a bizarre rambling bit of nonsense for the American Spectator about how he travels …

It’s not just creationists who mangle science, some atheists do, too

Nature already has an age of consent. That age is approximately 12-13, otherwise known as the onset of puberty. We don’t need Christian morals to set an arbitrary age on when a sexually mature human female can mate legally. We already have clear parameters on sexually maturity as established by the law of evolution, and acting within those parameters does not under any reasonable definition constitute “rape”. Moreover, because this irrational moral imperialism is almostly solely applied against males who pursue relationships with younger females, I do believe the change of age-of-consent laws should be a critical area of focus for Men’s Rights Activists.

I was sent this terrible statement reputed to be from the guy who calls himself “The Amazing Atheist”. There is, however, no evidence that he actually said these specific words, so the attribution was inappropriate. However, somebody still wrote this idiotic statement: Nature already has an age of consent. That age is approximately 12-13, otherwise …

When you let assholes be the public face of atheism, it’s no wonder we have a bad reputation

I am no fan of Bill Maher. I was extremely uncomfortable with his selection as the recipient for the Richard Dawkins Foundation award in 2009, and I could only accommodate it by telling myself it was solely for his movie, Religulous, and not a general appreciation of his asshattery. And I didn’t even like Religulous! …

The Dark Enlightenment loons and HBD

Remember the Dork Enlightenment? It’s this bizarre ‘movement’ consisting largely of head-up-their-asses libertarian types with a fetish for the kind of medieval world they played in their Dungeons & Dragons games…but they’ve got Silicon Valley money and have happily embraced cult recruiting techniques, so they’re also somewhat dangerous. One escapee from the Dark Enlightenment has …

So…when is George Will going to retire?

There ought to be a pasturage somewhere for out-of-touch old white men. His latest nonsense, in which he tells women to shut up about rape, will raise a few eyebrows. They are learning that when they say campus victimizations are ubiquitous ("micro-aggressions," often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make …

The perfect guy, the supreme gentleman

Seven people were murdered and another seven wounded in a drive-by in Santa Barbara by a deeply disturbed MRA/PUA. He considered himself a frustrated Alpha Male who was owed sex by women, and when he couldn’t get it, he decided to punish random women. Dave Futrelle has a complete transcript of his manifesto, along with …

Fresh new enemies — their tears give me strength

I’ve long pissed off the sexist anti-feminist gang, and now that I’ve pointed out their ideas are simply racist, I’ve had the HBD twits hollerin’ at me, and now I discover that the intersection of misogyny and racism is simply the worst. Heartiste has weighed in. @HistoryGenetics @pzmyers I know Myers' ilk: Low sexual market …

Another reason to join the Cult of Macintosh


Earbuds. They drive PUAs bonkers. Yeah, you women: BE OPEN AND RECEPTIVE TO COLD APPORACHES. You’re stifling the poor pick up artists. (Although, strangely, if I need to talk to a woman wearing earbuds, it usually seems to work to wave and get their attention. But then, I’m not some aggressive dudebro on the make.)

How to drive a Brit crazy

It turns out to be really easy. All it takes is five little words. “‘Cunt’ is a sexist slur.” Ophelia is discovering this. Maki Naro posted this little comment on twitter. Whenever anybody points out that "cunt" is a misogynistic slur pic.twitter.com/5zqxXwYSJp — Maki Naro (@sciencecomic) May 9, 2014 I retweeted it, and then the …

A perfect picture of oblivious entitlement

Tal Fortgang, a freshman at Princeton University, gets published in Time magazine by complaining that he resents being told that he’s a privileged white man. I don’t really need to say anything more, do I?
