    A Response to Jordan Peterson

    An interview with University of Toronto Psychology professor Jordan Peterson has been circulating around social media for a few days now. In the interview, Peterson says a number of disturbing things, using his position as an academic to cloak his claims in the authority of expertise. Mostly for my own satisfaction, I want to address the points Peterson made in…

    Queereka looking for writers!

    Hey everyone! Queereka is looking for new writers. The gig requires with some commitment and provides zero monetary pay, but what it lacks in generating coin is made up for with friendship and love! And glitter! So what are we looking for?

Prince was a prolific musician who put out albums nearly every year since 1978 (and a few times two in one year).

I’m not usually one to wade into movement atheism shit-flinging contests; atheism is not one of the facets around which I…

    There’s been an uptick in discussions about gender theory in the atheoskeptosphere lately, and I’ve noticed a not insignificant number of people throwing around ideas about gender theory in ways that clearly demonstrate they don’t know what they’re talking about.

    Cross-Post: Iceman is gay because being bi is unthinkable

    This post was written by Vince at Queereka. If you’re a comic book fan you probably already know that Iceman of the X-Men has been outed as gay. It’s been covered extensively in the press and that, I think, is a good thing representation. Or rather it would be in any other circumstance. In the past I’ve felt ambivalent toward…

    Cross-post: Like a Horse and Carriage

    This post was written by Allie T Jones on Queereka. Last week, American Atheists’ Jamila Bey spoke at the yearly meeting of CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Committee. To give you some idea of CPAC’s tenor, this year’s highlights include: Phil Robertson, patriarch of Duck Dynasty, said that “I believe Jesus came down from Heaven in flesh 2000 and 15-years…
