Whoa, RDF/CFI says the right thing

For once.

I am truly surprised, actually.

    Truly an encouraging development, whether it stems from genuine conviction, or just a sense for which way the wind’s blowing. But what will be the reaction of the rest of the atheomisogynosphere?

    The likes of Trump, Weinstein, Krauss and others of their ilk might not have gotten as far as they did if America hadn’t embraced the cult of personality, fame and wealth.

  3. tacitus says

    Krauss’s Twitter account has gone completely dark, which could be a sign that he realizes it’s over for him. Meanwhile, his buddy Sam Harris is here in Austin tonight with another of his ((multiply) alleged) serial abuser/harasser friends, Michael Shermer. Tickets still available, apparently. A few years ago, I would have considered it, but I think I’ll pass…

  4. Hj Hornbeck says

    The Center for Inquiry is committed to a policy of zero-tolerance for sexual harassment.

    They’ve claimed that since 2007. Past history makes me skeptical of their commitment. By this point, “the right thing” should include resignations and a serious commitment to self-education via outside consultants.

    Label me an optimist, but I‌ feel the #metoo movement as well as many of the recent developments are reaching many people and we are at a tipping point. It feels a bit random to reach a tipping point now and not years earlier but the tipping point should come at some point.

    I think with the social media, it gets harder and harder to deny the fact that it has been extremely easy for the criminals or the creep to get away with sexual assaults or sexual harrassments. FFS, more than 150 people testified and more than 250 victims have been identified in the case of Larry Nassar which means he had been getting away until now. Based on this statistics alone, we can say that if you are a man of power (not even necessarily of a lot of power), or if you are rich, then the chances of you getting caught or suffering because of a sexual assault was less thatn 0.4%.
