Skeptical feminism in a nutshell

I usually make my points in short essay format, but this morning I was inspired me to create something punchier.

Special thanks to Rebecca Watson for inspiring the first-ever YH&C political cartoon. Friedrich Hayek spoke of scientism, the use of scientific language and the trappings of science to make unscientific points. I think the feminist faction of skeptics are guilty of "skepticism" where they attempt to dismiss their opponents by falsely accusing them of being pseudoscientific and using logical fallacies.


  1. Minus the type ("rightous"), well done. Well done.

  2. Thanks, I missed that one. Fixed!

  3. I love this! I've got a small band of radical queers (Their term, not mine - to be more descript, they are polygamist, genderless, sexual-preferenceless, white women with political views as extreme and undefinable as their identities.) that I debate with on occasion. In every instance, their argument devolves to the right frame of the cartoon wherein I am told to be silent as I am 1) white 2) male 3) straight 4) of Christian descent 5) of European descent and 6) middle class. Any position I take, unless it agrees with them, is seen as an assault on another group that somehow oppresses them.
    At first, it was infuriating. Now it's just laughable.
    -Abner <-- My way around blogger's attempt to make me sign up.

  4. It's those folks, and sovereign citizens, that make me feel better armed.

    Is it just me, or do I detect that things are simmering just below the level where violence should break out when debating, or even talking to, some of these feminist types? There just seems to be so much anger there.

    I only have one question, they are genderless white women? You would be in line for an ass whooping if they heard that I betcha.

  5. I'm proud to say that I am fairly sure I am the origin of the word "mansplain".

  6. I'm developing a new IQ test with my latest batch of Koch funding. Here's how it works, if you ever use the term "mansplain" in a non-sarcastic manner, you fail.
