Reading Time: 5 minutes If you haven’t learned to identify ableism when you see it, looking at the behaviors and beliefs of anti-vaxxers and how those behaviors impact disabled people is a master class. First, let me be clear: I’m not talking about people who have valid reasons to hesitate before getting the COVID vaccine, or those who are […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes The mind-body connection was discovered many thousands of years ago in India, and yoga emerged as a physical-spiritual practice that purported to join body and brain together with the incorporeal Mind of all existence, variously known as The All, Brahman, and God. In the yogic view, the body is a vehicle and conductor of spiritual […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes Right-wing pundit and professional anti-Semite Rick Wiles has spent much of the past year spreading COVID conspiracies that range from Bill Gates using the vaccine to impose the Mark of the Beast to claiming that Dr. Anthony Fauci should be tortured until he confesses that he helped create the virus. Now, with no evidence whatsoever […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes I am tired of the people coming here insisting that the vaccines are killing us, and to support their position, take the published statistics apart, misinterpret them, cherry-pick them, and cite statements out of context from reports to support their position.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Christian claims always have a pedigree, if our two current series, Journey Into Hell and 1st-Century Fridays, are anything to go by. I want to know the source of this particular mythology. So today, let’s check out this wingnut’s specific claims — and see, if we can, where she’s getting them and why she cherishes them so much.

School started back for us last week, and masks are mandatory because our district doesn’t have any wealthy white people bullying the school board into disregarding the pleas of every hospital […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes Cynthia, who has provided guest posts in the past, sent me another one, but it got lost in my inbox. Sorry! So this is a little overdue, but should still be of interest.

Reading Time: 4 minutes It took some four decades, but Johns Hopkins University’s ‘sex-change’ surgery program is back. Its anti-LGBTQ director had succeeded in gutting it in 1979.
Reading Time: 5 minutes The utter rank hypocrisy of the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has been on show over the last few days. Let me walk you through it. Johnson, in a private meeting of Tory MPs, let the true Tory cat out of the bag: The prime minister’s full remarks, which first appeared in the Sun newspaper, were reported […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes This is some interesting research. There is a link to being a Brexiteer and being hesitant to take a Covid vaccine. But, even stronger than this correlation is the new agey sort of anti-vax stance so that Green Party members are even more likely. iNews reports: People who voted for Brexit are less enthusiastic about having a […]
