What’s Wrong With Being Stupid?

This is really why I’m increasingly convinced that having religious debates is pointless. I recently had a discussion with someone who self-described as a moderate theist, they refused to even say what kind of theist they were, although I’m relatively certain they are some kind of new-agey Christian type.  So we start talking about evidence […]

Normal People have Social Privilege?

I can’t tell you how sick and tired I get of social justice warriors whining about problems that aren’t even problems. This time out, we have Everyday Feminism contributor named James St. James writing a 1,700 word article on how awful it is that extroverts have social privilege and we all ought to work to protect […]

The SJWs Lose at the Hugo Awards

I know when most rational atheists talk about the idiotic social justice warriors, it’s almost always within the realm of atheism or feminism or race politics, those are probably where they’re the most openly active and most visible for people of a non-theistic bent.  Unfortunately, that’s not at all where they stop, they’re only too […]

SJWs Don’t Understand Comic Book Movies

Granted, I haven’t seen the new Avengers movie yet, I won’t see it until it comes out on Blu Ray,  but already the crazy SJWs are out whining about how bad it is.  Joss Whedon walked away from Twitter entirely because he was getting abused, some people thought it was the radical feminist idiots that […]

Feminist Stupidity Rages On

Every time I think that radical feminists can’t get any more stupid, I’m unfortunately proven wrong.  Take this case, where feminists are petitioning a band, an all-white, all-male band, to change their name because somehow, it’s racist and sexist.  The name of the band?  Black Pussy.  Feminist heads have now officially exploded. You know, there was […]

Public Opinion Polling Stupidity

I know I’ve mentioned in the past that I, from time to time, engage in some public opinion polling.  It lets me make my opinions known to companies and I score a couple of Amazon gift certificates now and then.  It’s really win-win.  Unfortunately, recently, I got a “warning” from one of the polling places, […]

More Feminist Stupidity from FtB

Way back when, I made it a New Year’s Resolution to entirely walk away from the stupidity that is Atheism+ and I think that for the most part, I’ve done pretty well keeping that resolution.  As a part of that, it meant virtually abandoning several blog networks including FreethoughtBlogs, Skepchicks and, on the other side […]

Are Americans Stupid?

It seems to me that Americans, indeed humans regardless of where they’re from, have gotten stupider as time has gone on.  There was a time when people were at least marginally intelligent, they had the ability to work out simple problems for themselves and didn’t need their hands held to ponder the most infantile dilemmas.  […]

When Crazies Attack

You know what makes me really shake my head?  Watching theists sit around and argue over theology, especially when you get people with entirely different theological positions who are convinced that everyone but themselves are wrong.  It reminds me a lot of a bunch of 9/11 conspiracy nuts sitting around bitching about the minutia of […]

Timing the Abortion Discussion

The more time I spend in an abortion forum, the more I’m reminded why I don’t spend much time in abortion forums.  The place is just horrifically stupid and the people are just screaming at each other. Case in point, there are a bunch of fundamentalist Christian guys in the forum complaining that their wives […]

Are Theists Stupid?

On a recent Atheist Experience, they talked briefly about their disagreement with calling the religious stupid, saying that the religious can be just as smart as non-theists.  Well, yes and no.  Certainly, with regard to their theism, theists are not as smart as non-theists because they believe in irrational things. They can be bright outside […]

What the Hell is Wrong with Feminists?

There’s apparently a big bruhaha going on over a Subway commercial where women are told to stop eating burgers and presumably eat Subway so that they’ll fit into sexy Halloween costumes.  There are women out there whining about how sexist it is that they’re expected to wear sexy costumes! How dare anyone suggest that! Well, […]

The Whine For The Win!

People whine about the stupidest things, this time out, we’re going to talk about modern cars and the “fact” that people “can’t” work on their own car.  This was brought up by an article, written by Steven Lang, over on Yahoo Autos, where he whines about 7 reasons that people “can’t” work on their own cars. Of […]

The Eleven Commandments of Progressivism

Elizabeth Warren, the current liberal media darling, has issued Eleven Commandments of Progressivism that has mindless liberals swarming and singing her praises.  However, as I look at these, I disagree with most of them, strenuously in some cases, and any rational, responsible person ought to do the same.  Besides, these aren’t commandments, these are beliefs. […]

Are People Getting Dumber?

Thanks to reader njmcc for pointing this out to me.  I’m honestly confused at how dumb some people are.  George Carlin once said “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.” I think he was right on the money and the more that we see of humanity, […]

Suicide and the Art of Outrage

The Atheist Revolution had an interesting article today about Robin Williams’ suicide and the subsequent uproar from the collective Internet over comments made by Shepard Smith.  I was totally unaware of any of this, of course, because I don’t pay attention to the constant whine coming from the online community.  I’m fine with suicide, as […]

Opposing an Increase in the Minimum Wage

Recently, Swiss voters rejected a proposal that would have increased their minimum wage to the highest on earth.  Good. Maybe these countries are starting to see the insanity of throwing money at problems that are never solved by the throwing of money.  Now while I’m fine with having a minimum wage, you will never increase […]

Yet Another Failed Apologetic Tactic

By the time anyone reads this, Roger, our single Christian troll, could be long gone.  While he is laughable, he’s also a good example of a failed apologetic tactic.  I haven’t come up with a good name for it, although I am certainly open to suggestions.  Essentially, the tactic is to continually ask for more […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #63

Yes, we know we took a week off.  Blame Mike’s bad wifi  But now we’re back and this week on the show, we explore how refusing to discriminate against gays somehow bullies Christians, we expand on our discussion from our last show about Hobby Lobby’s Steve Green wanting to force Biblical truth down the throats […]

Fuck the Internet

There’s a lot to like about the Internet, at least the concept of the Internet, but there’s a lot to hate about the way the Internet actually functions and how people actually use it.  Whereas I’d love to think that the Internet can help mankind to embrace diversity, increase knowledge and help bring us together, […]

Republicans, You’re Just Laughable!

I just got off the phone with a guy looking for money for the Republican Party.  He called to ask some questions about the direction of the Republican Party  and where I thought they needed to go.  I told him they needed to focus on the economy as their major direction in the upcoming election […]

More Feminist Bullshit on Tumblr

I’m really not a fan of Tumblr, it, like Twitter, represents the short-attention-span culture that I detest in the world, filled with mindless memes and quick quotes.  It all goes by without much context, people repeating what they read somewhere else and very rarely ever resulting in an intelligent conversation about the issues. I really […]

Why I Hate Stupid Atheists Too!

A recent story popped up about an atheist professor mocking campus preachers at the University of Connecticut.  The professor, James Boster, a professor of anthropology told them to accept Darwin as their personal Lord and Savior, something that the preachers said was “very unbecoming”. Now I agree, these campus religious leeches ought to be mocked, but not […]
