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: $1800Goal: $3000

Talk:Mail-order bride

Using RoK as a citation[edit]

Note the quotation marks indicating a bit of contempt for the explanation. When contrasted with the rest of the paragraph it highlights how awful people saying that are. Do you think the commentary is too obtuse and should be removed for being confusing? Ikanreed (talk) 15:27, 4 February 2015 (UTC)


I have significant problems with this article. I'm not at all sure how it fits with our mission and I'm concerned about the number of references to very dubious sites - notably RoK. It's looking more and more like a Mail Order Bride apologia - which isn't in itself a bad thing - but it needs to reference less biased sources than MRA sites.

Mail-order brides are a topic of debate between feminists, Christian conservatives, the manosphere, etc. That would usually bring the subject within the purview of RW's mission. You could always ask User:AgingHippie to rework the article, similarly to what was done with the foreign woman article. Landmartian (talk) 12:36, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
