Now that it’s all hands on deck to defend abortion, facts matter again and, would you look at that? The call to arms has a lot of mind-numbingly statistics on how atheists are consistently and reliably pro-women’s rights… which was already pretty common knowledge some 10 years ago:
Nada Peratovic claims humanism has to do with making decisions based on science, reason, critical thinking, yet fails miserably to dismiss a demonstrably anti-scientific doctrine as critical theory.
I believe Coyne. His respect for the truth and facts (what BuzzFeed ‘journalists’ decry as “rejecting all kinds of faith“), and his ability to keep his own biases in check grant him the credibility to make allegations against Lawrence Krauss regarding sexual misconduct.
They got wrong each and every account of the episodes that I am familiar with, and we’re supposed to believe they got the Krauss story and everything else right? I’m sorry, I can’t do that — they blew up their credibility
What’s the evidence that there is sexism in the atheist community? Is the disproportionately low number of women in the atheist community due to misogyny? Anecdotal evidence is not enough.
The lack of bio-diversity in skeptics’ conventions can be explained by the simple math of demographics; not a deliberate bias or prejudice — now, put down your pitchforks and torches.
The bigoted prudes had the UN drop Wonder Woman as their Honorary Ambassador because, apparently, judging women by their looks is not wrong when they do it.
Contrary to the common assumption that racism and sexism are twin prejudices propping up a white male power structure, minority women are far less likely to be the target of racist treatment than minority men.
hat would happen to the players of both teams if they requested uniforms as those of their opponents?
The interpretation of a text occurs when it is unclear in its literalness, so it is necessary to go to the context or the principles assisting it as motivation. Are they going to argue that god dictated its magnum opus in such a way it would lose consistency over time, or with metaphors that would cause confusion depending on who interpreted them?
I don’t need to be black to reject racism, I don’t need to be gay to reject homophobia, I don’t need to be Muslim to reject the anti-Muslim bigotry, and I don’t have to be a woman to support abortion.
Porn users have just been vindicated. We already knew the porn-sexist trope to be BS, but it’s always nice to have it backed up with peer reviewed evidence.
Artist Kukuruyo recently summed up affirmative action in just one cartoon frame.
Makes you wonder how can she be so right about this and so wrong about Dawkins, Harris and Hitchens.
If you thought the bashing Richard Dawkins fashion when bloggers don’t have anything of value to say was over, think again.
I was asked what had happened to him, so in order to give an answer I had to do a little research. What I found is not pretty:
I’m happy about Malala Yousafzai getting the Nobel Peace Prize because hers is a political agenda that might actually help improve the lives of everyone in Pakistan. Getting women to study is giving them the tools to free themselves from superstition, giving them opportunities to question the status quo and letting them think for themselves.
This Rihanna‘s ad turned out to be way too sexual for British kids:
