Elevatorgate

All I can say about this Skepchick/Dawkins drama is this: come on, guys! This is starting to make YouTube drama look normal, and that's saying something. Skepchick had every right to feel uncomfortable and creeped out by what happened to her in Dublin. Other people should have left it at that and not made this into some huge debate on feminism. Dawkins probably should have thought twice before making his little comment and should probably come out and clarify exactly wtf he was talking about. In any case, there is no reason to completely discredit Dawkins. Heck, I always preferred his biology work to his personal opinions.

This is all so silly. Certainly, I think that the "atheist community" could use a little more estrogen in general, but the way these issues are being discussed here is unproductive and emotional. Please stop.
