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

The channel was originally a let's play channel run by two friends, Shaun and Jen. Shaun began making videos about other YouTubers (such as LeafyIsHere and CinemaSins) in 2016, and soon after began making videos refuting the arguments of popular right-wing, alt-right and anti-SJW YouTubers. The videos became increasingly popular as a new wave of leftist youtubers (such as ContraPoints, BadMouseProductions and Hbomberguy) began to gain traction on YouTube through their critiques of right-wing politics. Jen didn't participate in these videos beyond occasionally drawing the thumbnail art, and eventually left for Twitch. By September 2017, the title of the Shaun and Jen channel was changed to simply "Shaun" pending a new name. The symbol of the channel is a human skull wearing sunglasses, allegedly in order to "reclaim the skull" from the alt-right (Davis Aurini, maker of The Sarkeesian Effect and Alt Right Dogs, keeps one on his bookshelf).
