Rationality Rules? (Non-fiction)


H.J. Hornbeck has a post on the latest conflict between between YouTube bloggers Rationality Rules and Essence of Thought.

I can’t speak to three of those names, but I know both Matt Dillahunty and Noel Plum are on the record as stating there was nothing transphobic in that original video. RR is blatantly rewriting history to cast his defenders as his critics, in the process erasing all the criticism he received from other quarters. He’s also downplaying his video where he spent some time thanking EssenceOfThought for pointing out mistakes he made.

I don’t really follow things like this, but it does strike me as odd that Rationality Rules didn’t take an interest in women’s athletics until trans women became an “issue.”
