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

Holding opinions like that makes you an asshole, no matter if you keep them to yourself or not -- but please, keep them to yourself.

Actually, you're the a**hole. We all have certain thoughts in our heads that we would never act on. That is like saying that a man who has a rape fantasy is as much of an a**hole as a rapist.

But you have acted on it, by spouting off here.

I did act on it. I then apologized.

Holding bigoted opinions doesn't make you as much of an asshole as people who actively discriminate because of their bigoted opinions, but it still makes you an asshole. And having a rape fantasy is completely different from thinking that women should be raped.

Also what ListenerX said.
