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.

Victim Blaming

She was in the wrong clothes.
She was in the wrong bar.
She was in the wrong street.
Should've taken her car.
She was drunk, she was high.
Too trusting by far, she
Shouldn't have dated the guy. (more…)

I'm tired of having the nice, polite-sounding Why should we have the right to stop child-circumcision? debate. Let's call it what it is. Let's have the open and frank Why the hell should you be allowed to mutilate your children's genitalia? debate.

Likewise, let's not have the Why should abortion be legal? debate. Let's have the Why should we force women to donate the use of their body to another organism? debate.

From Change.org:

You wouldn't think school girls in the UK have to worry about female genital mutilation (FGM), but we do. Although it is illegal in the UK, it is still happening – 24,000 girls in the UK are currently at risk of FGM. People just don't talk about it, doctors don't check for it and teachers don't teach it.

Hail the glorious, wonderful news!
To try to keep bums in its emptying pews,
The Church of England's gen'ral synod
Has decided the word of its perfect god
Was wrong—or maybe just lacking in tact.
So women can now wear mitred hats.
Isn't the Cee of Ee lovely? Who cares
That it had to be forced, and dragged by the hair?
It's marvellous news, that they now admit,
You don't need a penis to spout bull-shit.

More Bloody Hyperscepticism

Yet another case of "scepticism" being taken to ridiculous lengths. (Ockham's Razor, meanwhile, lies rusty and unused in the bathroom cabinet.)

I decided to launch a fundraiser because I believe what PZ Myers has done to be wrong. I do not know if the allegations are true or false but as a skeptic and a reasonable person who draws conclusions based on available evidence, I consider these allegations to be completely without credibility because no evidence has been offered and the allegations are coming from an anonymous source. This is not evidence, this is hearsay!

Dear hypersceptics,
