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

Robert Kastenmeier[edit]

Was Kastenmeier actually a pinko who was forced to distance himself from the student radicals for fear of Red-baiting, or was he instead opposed to what they were saying? (I cannot access that page of the Weather-lady's book, so I do not know the background.) Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 02:57, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Gay Mecca[edit]

Can I just drop here that before Stalin, Soviets have decriminalised homosexuality, expanded on civil rights (like allowing for abortions and generally advancing the case of feminism), and that Soviet psychiatry has contributed to the field when it wasn't abused for political wankery? Ok, so I will do just that, and also note that the first two thingies were done in 1917, half a century before civil rights protests in the West. Thank you. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 02:09, 04 July 2015 (UTC)
