RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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: $2120Goal: $3500

On Milo Being a 'Professional Victim'[edit]

The cite note links to a Mashable article which, at no point, shows Milo describing himself as a professional victim. You need to either A) Reinstate my edit. B) Update the cite note to one in which Milo describes himself as a professional victim. Or C) remove the phrase "self-described".

My edit was 100% valid given this site's policy against libel in articles about living people.— Unsigned, by: DeusKek1987 / talk / contribs 23:07, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Also: On talk pages, please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the sign button: SigButt.png on the toolbar above the edit panel. You can also indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line. Thank you. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:07, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
You didn't address my criticism. We could argue until the cows come home over whether or not he's a professional victim but the fact is unless you have a quote in which he calls himself a "professional victim", it isn't "self-described." DeusKek1987 (talk) 23:13, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
You can't demand a public apology without the implicit premise that you have been victimized by the relevant party. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:15, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
I tweaked the phrasing slightly. Your thoughts? DeusKek1987 (talk) 23:17, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Seems perfectly fine to me. The man is a professional victim. The question of if he self-describes as such is contingent on finding a quote where he does that. I couldn't see that he did in the source, so your edit appears factual to me. Importantly, we still underscore that the man is a professional victim — which is also factual. Everybody wins. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:21, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Indeed. He'd never self-identify as a professional victim even though he undoubtedly is one. Cheers. DeusKek1987 (talk) 23:23, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Feminism[edit]

I changed it from "women and people who self-identify as women" because it implies trans women aren't women. Snokw (talk) 15:32, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello![edit]

Long time no see, fellow editor? How do you do? Nerd (talk) 00:15, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
