    Skeptability is launching!

    Hello! In case you don’t know me, I’m Sarah, and I’ve been blogging for Skepchick for almost a year now. I’ve written about my disability a couple times before, and I’ve wanted to write about it more, but I’ve always worried about doing that. Will writing about it ruin my future career chances, publicly declaring that I’m disabled? Will people stop reading what I write if…

    Why I am Boycotting the 2014 Winter Olympics

    [TW: Homophobia, violence, rape]  I’m not a particularly big fan of most sports. It’s not so much that I dislike them as that I’m indifferent to them.

This week, I was thinking a lot about the old joke that the Super Bowl winner determines whether the stock market will be bullish or bearish (is “bearish” a thing? OK) or that it predicts presidential elections. With that in mind, this week I took things to the next logical step by…

    Ditch those Roids for Antler Spray

    Yes, you read that correctly. For those of you that don’t operate in the sports universe like I do (I assume most of you), it is Super Bowl week. The media is concerned with many topics: brothers coaching against each other and how a double murder ten years ago affects a players legacy. But with any large sporting event, there is always…

    Ninja Infiltrates Skepchick

    Hi Everyone! My name is Jamie and way back in 2008 I sent an email to Rebecca saying I was interested in becoming a Skepchick. Needless to say, I didn’t make the cut. I spent the next five years slowly infiltrating my way into the inner circle of Skepchicks, by way of alcohol and unrestrained enthusiasm, until they finally gave…

    The Great Face-Paint Debate

    Recently, the Internet (especially its feminist and feminist-flavored corners) has exploded over the topic of makeup. For many, the personal became political and vice versa. The aspect of the debate that seemed to have been missed by many in both the pro- and anti- makeup crowds is the variation in perceived cultural pressure regarding feminine conformity, including makeup. In other…
