Awesome.
How is he playing C flute whilst standing on one leg/crutch/wheelchair?
I last saw him 'live' in 1973/4/5? here in Adelaide's Wayville Hall. In the Royal Showgrounds where prize sheep & cattle are paraded.
A Capacious ~500 seats or so. Maybe less.
The Beatles played there.

Adelaide: The cosmopolitan centre of music.

At least U-fucking-2 haven't been here. And that make up for all of the fcukups from not having in invited Beethoven because the white invaders has not killed all of the original inhabitants, let alone arrived here, but any reason, genocidal or not is sufficient to avoid U2.

Now you've done it. The only reason PZ was not "coming out" for A+ was that the haters would call him the Fuehrer (which, of course, he isn't). I guess now he has no reason to stay cooped up in teh Pharyngula Bell Jar.

He does have in his quiver, the plausible excuse that I did not refer to him as "Mein Fuhrer!".
Only "Oberstleutnant".

And with one bound, he is free!

Hi franc,

This describes me. Taking my first baby step away from religion. And as such I would like to say I feel safer here than on any of the baboon boards. I already know what would happen if I went there asking genuine questions.

So hi to all, never got round to introducing myself. I have a slight disability, though did not realise until my daughter saw a genetict, and am mam to a daughter with complex special needs, including severe visual impairement. I enjoy coming here, mostly for the lulz, love the humour here.

Back to lurking.

Not if his mighty powers are needed to right the doughty, but mis-organised Aplussers. A firm hand needed in stormy waters etc.

Still look how well that sort of intervention worked for the SA. Not that I'm even slightly comparing the SA to the A+errs - they had much snappier uniforms and were dab hands at forcing octopodiae down unwilling throats. The A+errs, by contrast, are happily uninformed and are cack handed about forcing orthodoxy down swilling chodes. Quite different.
it seems to me that science and love of my fellow human beings is more than sufficient argument to guide the entirety of my life - Rev. PC Myers.

At the risk of seeming smug (by virtue of posting frequency) might I say that I can feel some empathy with you?
Perhaps not balanced empathy in parallel with your specific concerns, but empathy nonetheless.
1) Glad to hear that you are peeling yourself away from superstition.
As painful as having a band-aid ripped off a scar, but as vital that it should be removed after the healing process, lest it fester.
2) Many of we here have disabilities, but choose not to employ them as bait, nor lures for sympathy, unlike the A+Theistics.
As for your daughter: what can we do to help? Or: more specifically, is there anything that I can do to assist?
My own daughter is healthy, but I have acquired visual defects, and maybe able to proffer "lulz" to add spice to y0our existence?
Something that the negative drones at A+Theism lack is a sense of humour, that's for sure.

Oh dear! Janine, stop fantasizing about me being a lesbian. I'm bi, and the lesbian side is about .0001% of the whole. So, unless you are really secretly Patti Smith (who is pretty much the only woman I've notice I find attractive these days), I have no wet-on for you.

Thinks you look like this woman.

If he'd claimed you shared her opinions, I'd have thought it was offensive, but like a good feminist, he only mentions appearances. So you can pass for 33. Not bad eh? (Scenty mentioned recently that her 50th is coming up)

*I can't remember how these genderless pronouns work, so I'm making them up as I go.

Yep, 50 next month, but I am looking forward to 50 more than I did 33. It's kind of a landmark decade year. Now, if only I could pass for 33 back when I used to try to sneak in underaged into clubs where my favourite punk and new wave bands were playing. 2 clubs used to always let me in with no ID, but some of the others I was not so lucky.

What is wrong with having MRA points of view? There's a lot of fucking overlap on equality between MRAs and feminists.
I'm something like 99.999% straight. The baboons hated hearing my tale of leaving my radical separatist friends cold turkey due to realizing that I wanted to once again be friends with and have sex with men. A big no-no among that type. I only maintained friendships with a couple of women who really don't mind that I was no longer in the dyke community.

And as for MRA viewpoints, I've seen far, far less sexism against women from the MRAs I know, than the rabid sexist misandry from the feminists.

That the look might be more suitable for Greg Laden when he gets a raging tumescence about the loins for Steffy and wants to play Find Ze Kochwurst?

But seriously - and in case anyone thinks I'm Godwinning - I'm not saying Becky is a nazi. It's just that there's something - in the droning, soulless manner in which she talks and the cold way she seems to peer out at you from behind those glasses like a Stasi interrogator - that just gives me the chills.

Patti Smith who, you ask?

This is my favourite song by her. There's something very psychedelic about it.

The answer is: it does not have to be that way.
Hrab? A lucky dumb-fuck cretin know-nothing suit-wearing-idiot who happens to have briefly taken the fancy of Beccy.
Nothing more than that.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the anonymizer is *not* about depriving them of funding, but is instead about making it impossible for them to block links from the Pit.

*knock knock knock*

Hello there, my name is Gumby, from the Church of the Sisterhood of the Oppressed. Haven't you heard the Good News? May I come into your home and share this story, my sister in Peezus?

All men are infected with Original Sin, which is misogyny.

You see, after the almighty GOD created the Sun, the Earth, the rotation of Earth, then a few days later remembered to throw in day and night, He created this paradisaical garden in which he placed the first two people, Eve and Lilith. Unto them He said "I, the LORD, give this all to you. All is yours, but you are not to surf the Garden's television channels any higher than Channel 70, the Lifetime Network."

Well, we all know the rest of the story. Eve, frustrated by nothing on TV but Lifetime fare like "Tears for my Vagina" and countless episodes of "Woman In Danger", was tempted by a serpent (the New Testament refers to him as "Franc", but there is no mention of this in the earliest texts) to go beyond into the Forbidden Channel Zone. And lo, her eyes were opened, and many strange and titillating things did she see. Playboy Channel. Showtime. HBO.

She went to Lilith, and convinced her to take a look. Upon beholding the wonders of beer commercials and "Baywatch" reruns, her brain became chromosomally damaged (a condition known today as spongiform Ladenitus). To her horror, an extra appendage grew from between her legs, replacing the hole-y vagina that had so pleased the LORD. Lilith furthermore began sprouting body hair and speaking in a deeper voice, and most horrifyingly of all, Eve developed an longing for Lilith's extra appendage.

Some time later, the all-seeing, omniscient GOD was walking through the Garden, and He couldn't find Eve and Lilith for the life of him. So, after a few hours wandering aimlessly about and yelling "Eve! Lilith! Where art thou!", Eve and Lilith finally appeared, with leaves covering their nether regions. When GOD inquired as to why Lilith's leaf was so much longer than Eve's, they confessed. Enraged, the LORD cast them both out of the garden, saying "For this transgression, Lilith shall now be "Adam" (translation: potential rapist), a "male". And because this is your fault Eve, I hereby create the Patriarchy, where you are doomed to be oppressed by Adam and those like him. You will make them sandwiches, and bare their children. BEGONE!!!"

And so, Sister Rayshul, it has been thus ever since. We women have been cruelly suppressed by the patriarchy, but due to Eve, ALL are born with the sin of misogyny in our souls. But there is hope! It is my fondest wish that you surrender your heart to the grace and forgiveness of Peezus. Allow Peezus to come unto you! Only then will your misogyny be washed away, and only then will you be born again.

Well, I've taken up enough of your time, dear sister. Please take this copy of "The Way of the AtheismPlus Master" and in it find redemption. God bless you!

http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/ ... 12/for-al/

5 minutes later, PZ posted his next topic: White and delightsome (a Brian Keith Dalton video about racism inherent in Mormonism), saying it should be watched before the debate.

I'm now going to waste 10 seconds considering why he put those 2 in juxtaposition: Shame/repentance/coverup for the thread about Al, felt a need to get back in with racism-sensitive A+'ers? Had some grand plan all along to post them back-to-back? The pair of topics actually is intended to take a poke at Al's Mormon friends, or at Al for having Mormon friends? (If applicable.) Was clueless about any possible connection?

'Kay, that's it. I'm done wondering about that.


It's obviously the hat. I wasn't aware I was wearing my racist hat. I thought it was my homophobic hat, which I intended to wear, as it matches well with my anti-woman plastic glasses. Apparently I got the colors of the band confused. Such is how it goes with getting older.

Thank heavens I didn't accidentally don my rapist hat, but after checking, I am happy to report it's stored safely in a box where it may or may not exist.

Here's a picture of me wearing my "civil rights activist" headgear, which obviously means that I love everybody:

Hopefully, this will remove all suspicions that I hate all redneck cowboys:

Oh, I forgot, I'm a cripple, so I figured I'd throw this in:

Nothing more than that.

Ah right. I've always associated him with Phil Plait - but that might be a visual bias

Our Fairy-Phil has more talent in half his little toe than Hrab has in his entire ego, I'll wager my family fortune one that.
M. Giordiana does not have the shiny suit-coats that seem to give the bald Hrab the fashionista edge.
As one might be aware, fashion sense trumps musical talent anytime for the Skepchunks!
For: enjoying music for its own sake, "only" garners one mere internal pleasure.(!)
For the likes of Beccie-booze, and her trailing narcissistic hordes, that is hardly good enough.

What is the point in enjoying ones-self if it cannot be publicly advertised to one's adoring suck-hole sycophants?

Yes I have and the offer still stands. In fact I have always made it clear anyone I talk about or have a dispute with is welcome to come on my show and clear up any misconceptions or to tell me what they think of me directly. I have a certain amount of respect for anyone who will do that no matter what it is they have to say.

Well, maybe we should keep it then. PZ knows that traffic from specific sites can be redirected, since they sometimes do it to him when he fucks with polls. I wouldn't put it past him to do that to us. I saw him once tell his commentors to copy and paste the url in, instead of clicking it, to get around the redirects.

It is not at all "amazing" to those who have been observing this phenomenon from the outside.
As Franc may attest, there are those (apparently) rare humans¹ who have never fallen for parasitic indoctrination, and who cannot identify with your specific plight.

I know it may sound baboolish (go read Hoggleism 101!), but you have to know Franc and his MO. Very distasteful, and all the more appropriate in some cases.

I will not answer to those other comments that make me blush with (prabably false) modesty about my music. A general "thank you" will do, I hope.

I no longer follow his blog and had I known he would turn into a demagogue determined to lambast anyone who doesn't toe the line on radical feminist dogma, I never would have asked for his signature.


You know what, I can somehow understand them, at least partially. Let me quote what Crommunist wrote recently:

...I also encountered people who relied on a seemingly coded language. They would begin an argument on seemingly-innocuous grounds where there would be broad agreement from most reasonable people, and then through a series of ever-widening logical holes would steer the conversation towards their real position – that the victims of racism deserved what they got for one or more of a variety of reasons: laziness, cultural deficiency, an entitlement ethos, biological inferiority, lack of ‘personal responsibility’… again, a long list.

Perhaps most frustrating were the people who claimed to be, or otherwise seemed to be, allies in the struggle against racism who nevertheless made statements reminiscent of those in the first two groups. In their own frustration and difficulty accepting the realities of racism, a situation further coloured by the fact that they themselves had never needed to confront racism in a personal way, they fell into the same cognitive traps that made the race-baiting-accusers and the coded-linguists so galling. It was based on the tacit acceptance of a handful of unwarranted assumptions about members of minority groups who talk about race, or about the groups themselves.

And so, over a number of years and bruised friendships and self-recriminations over al of the racist statements I let slide because I was “picking my battles”, my skill at detecting racist sentiments grew. I knew, within a couple of sentences, where a coded or dismissive line of reasoning was going – often before the speaker hirself knew that there was any racial component to hir speech. I could rattle off refutations and dig my heels in on things that seemed innocent enough, but that I knew were the first baby-steps toward victim blaming and racial attack. I began to see the racial elements of things that even I hadn’t considered relevant before. It was like a goddamn Spidey sense.


(my bold).

The thing is, I understand how this works. It's the fucking awesome pattern matching abilities of the brain: if you encounter a certain racist pattern of arguments over and over again, then the next time someone begins an argument that matches that pattern, the alarms in your brain go off and you will get a sense, a sixth "spidey feeling", that you know where this argument is going. But of course, submitting yourself to the mercy of the pattern matching capabilities of your brain is a very unskeptical way to go. The problem becomes worse when you engage in online discussions where emotional cues get lost. And I think these are partially responsible for the meltdown of the PZ and the gang: Their pattern matching system is overloaded, they see sexism everywhere; they need it tune down the false positives.

No one is denying that there are real assholes, sexists, and misogynists out there. The question is, are you using reason and evidence to detect them or your "sixth sense"? When someone says something that you think it disagrees with your position, do you assume a certain attitude, race, gender and etc. is associated with them or do you first ask for clarifications?

I wish I could answer that question. I really do. It probably has its roots in the same reasons I used to believe that by telepathically communicating with a Jewish zombie, I could gain immortality. To be fair to myself though, I was a fan of PZ's for years before the radfem religious revival took place on FTB. I loved his dissection of creationist nonsense and loved the way the commentariat would ruthlessly skewer fundies who would swagger in armed with their latest copy-paste from AnswersInGenesis. And also to be fair to myself, the minute I saw Elevatorgate and the reaction to Dawkins' "Dear Muslima" post was the minute I started wondering "Are these people really who I want to be hanging out with? So don't be too rough on me.

TL;DR:

PZ turned me into a newt!

I'm interested in the sequence because I suspect that, based on their standard operating procedure:

The DMCAing preceded the tweet in question. That is, he was doxed for his criticism of Rebecca Watson. A later paranoid interpretation of a tweet became the post hoc rationale. Although they claim he was fired for his tweet, more likely he was fired because Rebecca and her friends (she admits to pissing off tweeters, banning them and letting her minions do the work) did a Justin Vacula on him.

If someone can give me a sense of what was said when by whom, and explain it to me like I'm an idiot, it would be appreciated.


No such thing happened. @ElevatorGate is, at worst, the kind of troll that shares absolutely every stupid thing that the skepchics and their ilk post onto twitter, blogs, or say in videos/podcasts. For example, he likes to retweet people that thank Sulky Amy after they buy her grade school arts & crafts projects. I know a lot of people aren't fond of him, but he's absolutely harmless....unless you're the kind of person that hates having your stupidity mocked.

Yeah, I was pretty well shocked at the foaming-at-the-mouth fury that erupted after that comment, which to me was a mild rebuke delivered in Dawkins' inimitable style, reminding everyone that there are far worse atrocities aimed at women than being harmlessly and clumsily hit upon in an elevator.

An incident which, by the way, didn't even happen as far as I'm concerned. ElevatorGuy is a false construct made up to support Beccy's agenda. All this time, and ElevatorGuy has never been doxed by the doxing-crazy FTB/Skepchick crowd? Nope, it never happened.

I'm interested in the sequence because I suspect that, based on their standard operating procedure:

The DMCAing preceded the tweet in question. That is, he was doxed for his criticism of Rebecca Watson. A later paranoid interpretation of a tweet became the post hoc rationale. Although they claim he was fired for his tweet, more likely he was fired because Rebecca and her friends (she admits to pissing off tweeters, banning them and letting her minions do the work) did a Justin Vacula on him.

If someone can give me a sense of what was said when by whom, and explain it to me like I'm an idiot, it would be appreciated.


No such thing happened. @ElevatorGate is, at worst, the kind of troll that shares absolutely every stupid thing that the skepchics and their ilk post onto twitter, blogs, or say in videos/podcasts. For example, he likes to retweet people that thank Sulky Amy after they buy her grade school arts & crafts projects. I know a lot of people aren't fond of him, but he's absolutely harmless....unless you're the kind of person that hates having your stupidity mocked.


Posting to specify that, in addition to not having posted something rapey, they also haven't attempted to get him fired from any job...that I'm aware.

I think the reason they started revealing his real name was as a sort of warning to get him to back off. Hasn't worked. And when Sulky Amy's proxy went and start dropping his name everywhere, he carried on posting as if it never happened as a way of getting under their skin...

To be honest, I follow @ElevatorGate on twatter for the occasional useful tidbit, but those tidbits are rare. I'm getting kind of sick of him and will likely unfollow his account. He's got the stink of obsession on him, plus my eyes start rolling every time I read his "valiant hero" nonsense.

And I think I can't be the only one to notice all the wimmin joining? ( :p )

Maybe because here they are treated as y'know people and not as perceptual victims?

Oh and new people (of all genders and none), please can we have more cat avatars?


The thing is that all the wimmin here are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. I learn that from the Lousy C. during MalloryGate (cause, a man telling a woman about her own experiences is offensive; unless you are one of the FC5 wise men).

Are you referring to this baboonism?:

Here we have a self-confessed fat sack of crap; enslaved to the half-wit's uniform of jeans-n-t-shirt; who can't tell a fedora from a panama and has the damned effrontery to attack Al's style!

Because that's what it is karpad. "[R]efusing to play the fashion game,..insisting that your individual judgment of what looks good and cool somehow supersedes the judgment of the rest of society." That is exactly why style trumps mere fashion. Al has it, you - by your own feeble admission - do not.

In the meantime, karpad, if you have anything else in your head that "isn’t really a fully formed thought" or otherwise find you "cannot put [your] finger on precisely what [something] says", exercise your democratic right to shut the fuck up.

Because, do you know what's really going on karpad? Al, doesn't look like your tribe, he doesn't think like your tribe. So, in your primitive baboon way, you have placed him in an out-group. Your irrational, primitive instinct is to attack. “[E]veryone who wears a fedora is a complete douchebag.” This is the foundation of all bigotry and you're too stupid to look in the mirror and see it.
