Wednesday I posted the second ever installment of the Skepchick Reader Rants.
The really impressive part of that post was how many times I managed to screw it up… yes, I screwed up posting an article that I didn’t even have to write. 90% cut and paste and I got the author’s name wrong AND I misspelled the name of one of the members of the Insane Clown Posse. Seriously, it was far less painful and embarrassing to admit that, back in the day,Â I paid Chip Coffey to do a psychic reading so I could talk to my dead sister.
But Skepchick Community, you were kind. You had my back. You forgave me because I’m 8 months pregnant, and obviously, this little pre-formed-Skepchick is eating parts of my brain for nourishment. And despite the fact that research proves that being pregnant doesn’t actually make you moreÂ ditsy, you guys went ahead and ran with it. (No, I’m not linking to any studies because those studies can kiss my ditsy ass!)Â Even Kirsten, whose name IÂ spelledÂ wrong about 50 times in the post that she wrote, came to my defense. It was kind of you. Thank you, all of you. I love you each of you so much more because of your honorable and humanitarian actions.
Update: after writing this post, I misspelled my own name on Twitter. I may have to resign from the internet for a while. I’m clearly not very good at it.
For the sake of kindness, do you ever look the other way on skeptical issues? Is something we should do more often? Do we do it too often? Do you forgive me for using pregnancy as an excuse for being a huge jerk to Kirsten and Violent J?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET.
