    Good luck with future projects, I think SGU will be much diminished without you. Not sure if I’l listen as much. Talking about annoying MRAs, or FeMRAs, it will be entertaining to see Sara Mayhew launch her campaign to be the new co-host. (My 2015 prediction)

    Anyone got good suggestions for other podcasts to listen to?

      Oh Lord no. Even ignoring all the dirty laundry, she was annoying as hell the time she was on there as a guest.

      There’s nothing quite like the SGU that I’m aware of… For science news,…[Read more]

    I don’t think so – Tony Parsehole is from Middlesborough. I’m 90% sure of that as he puts it on his posts there (Or did few years ago) and he posted a fake comment on my blog from a Middlesborough IP. Was under a nym and a bit racist – he then went back to the pit to crow about how I’d posted a racist comment as a nym on my own blog. So almost…[Read more]

    Oh crap, why are these little gits so scared? Sorry you have to endure their shittyness.

    In an incredibly unsurprising bit of news he was already on the block bot, but only level3. He is a fan of Mykeru’s videos – yes that one – the slymepit troll who likes to threaten people for the “lulz”… Great fans he has there. Presumably he is an…[Read more]

    • I was under the impression that he posts as ‘Tony Parsehole’ (= Tony PR’s hole) on the Slimepit.

    That should be the advertising tag line for YouTube itself. Although in the plural.

    Good comment, but I wish you hadn’t equated woman=XX and man=XY. Transphobia can be just as unintentional as sexism.

    • I meant no transphobia, and apologize if any was perceived. The OP was about “estrogen-vibes” and “essential” characteristics of people (which I appreciate are not genetic). The Sam Harris meme is that the “estrogen-vibe” is genetic and due to elevated estrogen due to more active lady bits.

    Oh yeah, I think the pain thing was the only reason they were against it, the whole hypnobirthing classes thing was weird. Apparently you not screaming while pushing it out makes the baby more contented O_o… So then not sticking a needle in the baby also makes it more likely to be a calm quiet baby. The midwifes description of a hypnobirthing…[Read more]

    Urgh, I wish I’d said something in our hypnobirthing classes. Midwife was just totally supportive of a couple who wanted to not have the injection. My eyebrows hit the roof when they said it and I looked it up later but too late then to call them out on it. Fortunately it’s a low risk and they were fine, although they had the baby in hospital in…[Read more]
