I can tell that Rebecca Watson is running scared. She is so ashamed and intimidated by the fact that Dr Eliza Sutton has accused unnamed Skepchicks and named FtBer of transmitting STDs (she might do it again!) that she’s forced to recant and admit that there are many good reasons not to attend her Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October.
None of those reasons seem to involve being a dangerous vector for disease, though. What they are is a recitation of rationalizations posted by weird anti-feminists on a petition to shut down her Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October.
None of them are about the risk of Rebecca Watson standing up at Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October dressed in a nurses outfit and diagnosing random members of the audience with gonorrhea. Although she could!
I suppose she might also turn Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October into a gathering of mindless haters who will spend the time photoshopping pictures of people Rebecca Watson doesn’t like, while calling them sexist slurs. Not very likely, though; I’ve been to a couple of Quiz-O-Trons, and we’re usually too busy laughing. Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October will not be a hate site. Probably.
I don’t think Rebecca Watson will be hosting Quiz-O-Tron in San Francisco on 25 October under a pseudonym, either, to hide the fact that she is routinely associated with such activities. I’m pretty sure she’s not embarrassed by what she does, as some people are. But just in case she does decide to go with a pseudonym, I hope she makes sure to include the words “Skeptic” or “Atheist” in it, because those titles have become so routinely tied to such good human beings.
