    The way the first story is written, he didn’t get into too much trouble when he was just harassing cis-women, but harassing a transwoman got him into trouble. Why couldn’t he have been ousted for harassing women earlier?

    (I’m ashamed to admit that the unfortunate phrasing that went through my mind was that he found a victim with the balls to…[Read more]

    • In my experience it takes about 3 women coming forward before these allegations are taken seriously. They stood up for themselves, they just stood alone and were ignored.

    I, too, will miss you on the show. I am sure the MRA brigade is going to be crowing victory over your departure, but I can continue to ignore them.

      Damn, now I’m hungry.

      • Yes, but let’s not forget the fried sausage special with #GamerGate man-tear sauce.

        I hear it’s to snark for.

      • If I remember the two-page spread in Misandrist’s Monthly, it does have vegan and vegetarian options, but it’s still mostly about man-eating.

    Quote: “The time spent listening to Skeptoid can be better spent listening to another podcast that actually addresses true criticism rather than condescending to “true-believers”, or better yet listening to the latest Mary Roach book on tape.”

    I like Skeptoid. I like the format, I like the length, I like the majority of topics covered, etc. I d…[Read more]
