Unbelievable. A feminist said something sensible. In a related story...
In a related story...
A conservative using the same cliche as pro-"choice" activists is doing something wrong.
As far as I can tell, a typical atheist became an atheist in middle school (formerly known as junior high school). In other words, atheists are rejecting a middle-school understanding of religion.

If we have food stamps, must we draft people to be farmers?
Unlike some other controversies, the laws supported by hbd fans (immigration restrictions) really do pick pockets and break legs.
Shouldn't this type of reaction be limited to controversies that involve laws that either "pick your pocket or break your leg"? The gay-marriage tempest in a teapot is about whether gays feel offended by the lack of recognition by the State.

You can't be both a scientist and a theist?
Why?
If 94% of everyone who has lived are now dead ... then the claim "all men are mortal" is no longer established to within a 95% confidence level.

Who are "us"? If each human being is a Proper Class, there can be no sets of humans at all.
This is no more preposterous than asking a legal analyst to write about nuclear meltdowns.
If you try keeping secrets you must have something to hide... In other words, if the government prosecutes Snowden, it must have something to hide.

On the other hand, every time the Red Sox win the World Series, another technology becomes viable. In 2004, the Red Sox won and Facebook was founded. In 2007, the Red Sox won and Kindle was released. Next time the Red Sox win, I expect to see fusion-powered air cars.
