Rebecca Watson: The Religious Right vs Every Woman on Earth [49 mins, 4 secs]


I was going to post an installment of The Noontide Query, but more important things come first. I owe a big hat-tip to Twitterer @lousycanuck, and the blog page on this site I first saw it, (Here).

Frankly, I’m not interested in this country becoming a theocracy, and political events over the last several decades show some success by the Far Right in attempts to move us in that direction.

More disturbingly, we’re importing it around the world, and religious privilege and entanglement in politics have only gotten worse, despite a burgeoning worldwide rationalist movement.

Don’t Be a Dick: The Massage


rkwatson | June 29, 2010

The final part of the series, sadly starring me since we ran out of actresses. Oh god, the horror! It’s based on an actual post to Reddit.com/r/skeptic.

This short film is one of four Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for skeptics, atheists, and others who need a bit of help when it comes to being social and friendly while still staying true to their (lack of) belief.

This episode stars Rebecca Watson and Sid Rodrigues.
