RationalWiki:Gender Studies project
The purpose of this project is to expand and clarify existing articles and create new articles where needed that are related to issues of sex, gender, sexuality, and other issues as they relate to Rationalwiki's mission statement:
- Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement.
- Documenting the full range of crank ideas.
- Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism.
- Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media.
This page itself is for
- Discussing issues of need to tackle large holes in RW's articles
- Coordinating movements to make sure nothing is ignored and to prevent accidental "doubling up" of work
- To seek and receive input on possible movements on new or existing articles
- To make sure that RW's articles on the subject matter are the most useful that they can be
Additionally, it is the hope of the idiot behind the project that this project can be a part of the broader "deadlink" project which Rationalwiki is going through at the moment, but simply focused on dealing with deadlinks in the articles related to sex, gender, and sexuality.

Still need to go through Category:Articles with unsourced statements, but too worn out from this.
