    People of Quality Don’t Fear Equality

    I was reading the news on Saturday, when I saw that there was a KKK rally in Indiana. At first, I was completely disgusted. What type of person could possibly be so racist that they would even be in the KKK? And what type of even worse person would think it was a good idea to advertise that racism by…

    Not All Cops.

    Yesterday a grand jury decided that the only person indicted in the killing of Eric Garner, an unarmed Black man choked to death in broad daylight in New York City, would be the person who filmed his death. This morning the St. Louis Police Department posted a social media update titled “Kids will be kids?” I hoped, for one fleeting moment,…

    Riot Response From Los Angeles to Ferguson

    I really wanted to write something profound about the situation happening in Ferguson, MO. The problem is, I know it’s not my story to tell. My story happened 22 years ago and even to that story, I was still merely a witness. I am a white person and I don’t live in Ferguson so I can’t truly understand the pain…

    Women in Secularism Wrap-Up

    Two days ago the second Women in Secularism conference ended. This is only the second time I’ve attended a non-religious or non-work related conference, (I’ve attended a lot of very large Christian conferences in the past,) and it was probably the most rewarding weekend I’ve had in many years. Not only because of the great speakers, but also because of all the…

  • Women at TAM: The Results Are In

    One of our goals here at Skepchick HQ is to get more women interested and involved in skepticism and science, and as a part of that I like to keep an eye on skeptic events to see how many women are showing up. It’s kind of tough since most events don’t have participants fill out surveys, so usually you just…
