The Heretics Hayride

Heretic Hayride

Here’s a spring gift that I hope my aging tech, geek, atheist, skeptic, and nimble-minded Euro-youth niches will all appreciate.  I’m pretty sure I’ll offend, applaud or confuse quite a few other niches along the way.  As always, join at your own risk. I don’t want to read or watch whiny Youtube videos about a bunch of hurt feelings when everybody laughs at you for falling off the back of the skeptic’s hay wagon.

If there isn’t enough hay to begin with, there’s a good chance I might be able to stir up a little extra along the way.  Hold the horses!! Heretic HQ just called to tell me that if there are no rules of conduct, then the ride cannot be certified by the head of the Atheistplus Action committee, the formerly estimable Dr. Richard Carrier (aka Debbie Downer).  Since this blog insists on inclusiveness and I have been accused of being something a tad south of totally gracious, here goes:

The Heretic Hayride rules of conduct are as follows:

Leave your pets at home (no #carrierpigeon allowed).  Be aware that our path crosses the known territory of a doughy looking, blue-haired Siren, as well as a cinnamon skinned fuzzy-haired monster.  DO NOT attempt to approach either one. The latter is known to have hair trigger rage issues and an incredibly acute sense of hearing. Snap a PIC, Tweet to World, Call security, write blogpost, but DON’T be foolish enough to confront either of them directly if we have the misfortune of making their encounter.  Keep your arms inside the wagon at all times and avoid loose or dangling jewelry.  Dongle type earrings are known to be specially prone to snagging.

Having to construct and conform to arbitrary rules of conduct took all the fun out of the adventure, so the ride has been officially cancelled for today.


Marginalizing Misfits

Rebecca Watson, always eager to root out every acorn in the woods concerning anything even tangentially offensive to her delicate sensibilities is (still?) clueless to the mission and goals of The Richard Dawkins Foundation! Becky must avoid looking for information on Richard Dawkins like Kirk Cameron avoids Googling “banana”. She recently stated:

“Regardless of what RDF does for science (and I’m not sure what that is, exactly, though I do know that they donate substantial amounts of money to other organizations that actually do things)”

That is gobsmackingly incurious on her part, considering the magnitude of historical events and given her obvious lust to retain “privileged focus” with the serious rationalist media. Playing(?) dumb works well with her #atheismplus cohorts because they are 99% feminist and only 1% rationalist.

Like any respectable cult leader she is in the position of having to gin up enough dog whistle code to keep her disciples smiling without looking too much like a Pentecostalist tongue-babbler to the diversified (educated) majority of rational skeptics. You need better PR control than Scientology if you want to hide the steady stream of “crazy” coming from Watson these days, and all the banning and blocking in the world ain’t gonna save her. The scam is coming unglued. It certainly isn’t working for her anymore. She is young. She lacks proper perspective. No formal math or science education. The deleterious effects of binge drinking are a real ‘mutha??? People notice….

I was always as underwhelmed by her intellect as I was suspect of her motives and veracity, but even George Bush had heard about “the Google”. Looks like Becky is now gunning for Ken Ham status in the Academy of Intentionally Ignorant Asshats. Maybe she got pointers from PZ Myers? He took a trip down to see Ken Ham and rode his plastic dinosaurs awhile back. Maybe she was there with him riding something too? I dunno. I stay home and Google.

I’ll spare Becky the heavy journalistic work since I know how painful a hangover can be.

Richard Dawkins Foundation

Our mission is to support scientific education, critical thinking and evidence-based understanding of the natural world in the quest to overcome religious fundamentalism, superstition, intolerance and human suffering.

Richard Dawkins has a voluminous selection of past presentations that are easily available on YouTube, You can see him speak in person at various upcoming atheist and science events. He is scheduled to,speak at a conference involving medical advances made through the use of evolutionary applications. He’s written a ton of best selling books debunking religion and supporting scientific methodology in support of his work in evolutionary biology, but then books and beer don’t mix so I guess Becky hasn’t read them.

There’s more backstabbing of RDF in her online screed against Dawkins, even as PZ Myers himself called for reason. She wasn’t having any of that tainted old white guy perspective privilege. It was heartwarming to see the King and Queen squabble so openly in public! My regards to PZ for the thinning of his harem, and in his honor:

I nominate “Nailing a cracker” as a synonym for “CONSENSUAL sex with a Skepchick” in the Idioms of New Atheism handbook.

I get my inspiration from the great men of science and skepticism that Rebecca Watson hates on. Where does she get her inspiration?


Hide the Weenie

Today’s post is a reflection on something that is rolling around the feminist arena that deals with in-group discrimination tactics.  In this instance the vocal nutjob of the organization isn’t Skepchick trying to artificially define or manipulate male-female interactions to her whims. In the MadFem variant of perverse reverse sexism, they are trying to set rules on in-group definitions to keep out male transgenders.  Only girls “born that way” need apply.  I know.  Seemed pretty easy to figure out when I was a kid way back when.  It is a lot more complicated these days, but by now I thought every forward thinking progressive had decided that if you are committed enough to have your weenie whacked, choke down enough estrogen to give you bigger breasts than an aging Ron Jeremy, and go through a certain level of psychiatric song and dance, you pretty much qualified as a girl.

Here’s more details for the strong stomached (h/t Scented Nectar);

There was supposed to be a RadFem2012 conference in the UK, in July, with Sheila Jefferies who is very vocal about hating trans women. Conway Hall, the place that they rented for it, recently told them that the deal is off. Why? These feminists broke the Terms and Conditions regarding issues of discrimination by having anti-trans speakers. Conway Hall does not rent to hate speakers.

Turns out that even castration and sexual reassignment surgery isn’t enough to distance oneself from the taint of your former maleness in the minds of RadFem.  Holy shit, what’s a guy gotta do to fit in with these RadFem freaks?  Pat on the back to Conway Hall.

Skepchick just wants you to keep your mouth shut and pretend not to look at her tits (and ferchrissakes keep your perverted desires to yourself you over-caffeinated sex machines!).  Compare that to these RadFem bitches who won’t even let a dickless chick attend their Hissy Fit Convention.  Wow!, and did you know a lot of Black folks don’t recognize the disconnect between hating homos even when they have been victims of discrimination themselves?  I dunno why that came to mind, but it seems somehow tangentially relevant.

RadFem will find a convention hall that is more interested in money than human decency.  They ought to bring their freak show to the USA and compete with the gay hating crank preacher.

RadFem, check with Mitt Romney.  I think he owns Marriott.  He is Mormon, but they make exceptions for sex freaks at their hotels so they can overcharge for PPV porn in the rooms.  Does your organization hate gays in general?  I dunno, but that would be a bonus and not a bug for a Mormon.

The most outspoken of the dickless chick haters, who I perceive as the RadFem equivalent of Skepchick “leader” Rebecca Watson is apparently this Sheila Jeffreys woman, was rumored to have been overheard muttering;

Who the hell wants a bunch of butchered up butch chicks invading our conference in the first place?  Those wanna be bastard-esses have enormous feet and the RadFem toenail polish budget is already strained to the breaking point.  Have they no sympathy or compassion at all for a true Sista?

For the record, here’s a couple of pictures of the aforementioned Sheila Jeffreys (spelling corrected), the woman with the most hate for these large toed monsters and their freakishly enormous Adam’s apples:

One can clearly see the need for a leader like Msss. Jeffreys not wanting to butch-ify up the organization any more than she does.

I would LOVE to know where the GASbaggers (Girlyban Apologetic Society jargon-Dam Dawkins and his meme virus) comes down on this issue. Where do they stand on the issue of chicks formerly with dicks? I have no problem with dickless chicks (most I know) or chicks formerly with dicks (so long as they keep it in their pants…uh.?..,), but I got real problems with dickless chicks ACTING like pricks. There is some serious God dam poetry, haiku or free verse in there. Fuckin’ pay attention people!

Girls of GAS works for me too. Sassy Ass Bitches of GAS kinda rolls off the tongue. Hey I’m open to suggestions. You outta see some of the ones I get already!! I got girls writing me all the time. OH Yeah!. It’s well past the 80’s and I’m down with the ladies… But I digress.

Something to talk about around the misogynist male water cooler when you get tired of trying to catch a side boob sneak peak at one of the many assorted sideshow Skepfreaks.  Thank me later.

I once speculated that after leaving office, torture enthusiast and noted Bin-Laden-determined-to-attack-American denying, Condi Rice might go to work for CHRISTTT, because she had so much mainstream religous rightwing religotard support. You do know CHRISTTT, don’t you?

Don’t feel bad if you don’t, because it is an imaginary place I created for satirical purposes based on an imaginary guy created for satirical purposes, so you are….uh…forgiven.

Center Heading Research In Support of Torturing Toddler’s Testicles

Holy CHRISTTT!  Their mission;  If there’s one thing imaginary satirical Jeebus hates more than anything, it’s the children of the world. Red and Yellow, Black and White, their tender dangling nubbins are in for a fright!

And for the record, (ok, and maybe even make the GASbaggers/Girls of GAS(?..evolving) MORE nervous) even an accused douche-bag like me is not twisted enough to have imagined up the perverse sexual tortures John Yoo LEGALLY authorized…against children. These girls are worried about a bunch of drunken frat boys mixed in a casino convention crowd and sick fucks like Yoo are teaching college in CA (last I noticed) and I hardly hear anybody mentioning it anymore.  Seems more important somehow in the scale of things.
