This, Gentle Reader, is a truly righteous rant. Power to that lady's elbow, I say!

On Winning

I had an email a couple of days back from a certain evangelical personage. Apparently, he's "won," as I've been too busy to address some puerile rantings he's made on the internet. I didn't know we were engaged in a competition, but okay:

Dear fundamentalists and would-be theocrats of every stripe…

Your Christ was never in my Christmas,
I never took him out.
The Qur'an tells you to draw no pictures,
I don't need obey its strictures.
For me they hold no clout. (more…)

I have discovered a new illness. It's possibly the illness with the narrowest—you might, if you believed in intelligent design, call it targeted—effect ever seen in a disease affecting human beings.

For starters, it only effects women.

Secondly, it only effects them in very specific circumstances.

It's called "oestrogen vibe," and it causes women to be less inclined to argue, but only if the subject under discussion is atheism. (more…)

Boobs! Hur-Hur!

So someone sent me a link to a You Tube presentation… A woman's expounding on ethics or quantum fluctuation Or humanism or the hist'ry of art or the latest cancer tests, Yet the very first commenter feels a need to inform her she has breasts.

Here's something I'd like to see from my fellow bloggers. If abuse of any kind—violent, sexual, racial, child-abuse, marital abuse, bullying and so on—forms a major theme of any post you make, consider that it's highly possible that at least some readers will be interested in the topic because they're looking for help. I think, therefore, that it's a good idea to add a link and maybe a phone number to a relevant organisation, where such help may be found, to the end of the post. Obviously I can't tell anyone to do this, but I would ask you to consider it.

With apologies to Pink Floyd…

We don't need no contraception.
We don't want no birth control.
Don't want children? Don't have sex, then.
Dontcha know your body's not your own?

Hey! Women! Your body's not your own!

All in all you're a dirty slut and a whore.
Yeah.
All in all you're just a- nother slut and a whore.

We don't want to hear opinions.
We don't want you having a voice.
A walking womb, you've got no rights, you're
Pregnant or celibate, that's your choice.

Hey! Women! You got no rights or choice!

All in all you're a dirty slut and a whore.
Yeah.
All in all you're just a- nother slut and a whore.
Just an incubator, you're not a person anymore.
Yeah, just another filthy slut and a whore.
Another filthy slut and a whore.
Just another filthy slut and a whore.
Repeat to fade.

Dear Professor Dawkins,
Here's some advice for you.
On subjects you've learned nothing of,
Shut up until you do.

It was the feminists who raised my consciousness of the power of consciousness-raising.
—Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion, 2006

The REAL rape culture: 'All occurrences of sexual intercourse are rape unless there is certified evidence to the contrary.'

The irony; it bites.
