This crap is everywhere

One question I got at my CFI-DC talk was about the prevalence of sexist/misogynistic scumbags in the atheist movement — aren’t they just a minority?

Just when you thought Libertarians couldn’t get any more revolting

Steven Landsburg carries out three “thought experiments”. They’re all pretty bad — one suggests that we have no grounds to complain about environmental destruction in Alaska if we’re living somewhere else, to which I’d have to reply, “You mean like Mars?” — but the third one…jebus, Mr Creepy McLiberturd is masturbating publicly here. Let’s suppose …

Get ‘em young

That’s a universal recommendation — a lot of times, college is too late. So here’s a lovely story about a teacher discussing Steubenville with high school students.

Around FtB

This may be redundant — you all cruise every blog on the site already, right? Ed is asking for donations, and exploring ideas to get an ad-free site. Give him your input! The Digital Cuttlefish thinks God is a misogynist. I think he’s right. Greta has a guest post — it seems that being a …

An object lesson for those who doubted

About 48 hours ago I posted a link to the Twitter feed of the egregious Michael Crook, who had used that fine microblogging service to share loathsome, horrible, explicitly pro-rape opinions regarding Steubenville. Within minutes, this clown – in the very first comment on the thread — objected, saying that my calling attention to Crook was …
