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 2019.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Ms. Benson is a skeptic. She has coauthored several books criticizing and satirizing anti-rationalism, misogyny,[note 1] and pseudoscience. All of these are in partnership with Jeremy Stangroom, a British sociologist and the cofounder of Butterflies and Wheels. She's also a notable female atheist, which is nice, given the inequality in the atheist community.
She left Freethought Blogs because she was, rightfully, being called a transphobe for "having her own ideas about gender". These ideas put her at odds with many other Freethought Blogs writers, since it's mostly populated with people who support social justice. Which she actually dislikes, given the fact that she thanked Cathy Brennan for her Twitter post defending Benson and denouncing "SJWs."
- Some of her comments on Facebook and Twitter. She compares transgender people to Rachel Dolezal's transracialism, dances around saying trans women are women, and thanks Cathy Brennan for her support.
