RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2200Goal: $3000

Ed Brayton is a civil libertarian blogger and former comedian who writes at Dispatches from the Culture Wars. He specializes in civil rights issues, particularly police misconduct, education policy, and transparency in government. He also has a soft spot for crazy ideologues, namely Joseph Farah and his menagerie.

Brayton's blog was the main ScienceBlogs political journal, but after National Geographic acquired the network, he founded Freethought Blogs together with a few other bloggers, including PZ Myers, and moved his main blogging activities there. In August 2015, he moved his blog once again, to Patheos.

Brayton and Myers were the two main founders of the Freethought Blogs collective. Though Ed and his readers had a brief feud with PZ Myers and his readers some time ago (mainly over framing issues), the hatchet has long since been buried in some concern troll's skull.

Brayton and Myers agree the freethought movement should not be dominated by aging white men like themselves. Both strongly support the view that Freethought Blogs should provide a platform for others, notably sex positive feminists. Brayton is willing to accept some controversy to achieve this.[1]

In the past, Brayton asked for financial help with a lawsuit he says is over a white supremacist objecting to being called a white supremacist.[2]
