    “But on the plus side, at least he makes Lawrence Krause look positively angelic.”

    Perhaps Trivers is on Krause’s payroll as well as Epstein’s? Maybe Krause is paying Trivers to be more of a jerk than him so that he’ll look better by comparison?

    Just a thought.

    What was the UN thinking? Getting a successful, intelligent, well-spoken, famous and successful woman to front their new campaign?

    Some people have no ethics.

    It’s particularly easy to see why people are offended by feminism when other people keep repeating the same lies and myths about feminism like:

    “…there are many ‘feminists’ screaming that all heterosexual sex is rape, that trans women aren’t ‘real’ women, that women who freely choose to be stay at home mothers are slaves who can’t see the sha…[Read more]

      • This is where we are. A couple years ago, I was doing an ethnography of the next generation of activists. One thing I discovered was how many of them like to use an artfully-disguised equivalent of “I don’t like your tone.” Because, for them, activism is a competition, see who can be the most inclusive. While at the same time, they’ve been raised…[Read more]

    • But dhasenan did thirty seconds of research! Did you do the thirty seconds of research it takes to fully understand an issue as complex as a satirical left-wing publication’s views and history on racial politics? I think if you want to seriously engage in this discussion you have to do at least thirty seconds of research. Preferably no more than…[Read more]

    As the British comedian David Mitchell once said, in response to jokes about the appearance of Anne Widdicombe:

    You know what? When belief in Santa is used as an excuse to limit my rights to bodily integrity or to force other women to veil themselves under threat of pain or death, I’ll protest Santa. Otherwise, the comparison is facile.

    Also, Hovind accuses atheists of being hypocrites about 5 seconds after saying that it’s okay to protest those…[Read more]
