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 2019.

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: $6000Goal: $6000

—The blog's former strapline.

We Hunted the Mammoth (formerly Man Boobz) is a feminist blog dedicated to poking fun at various instances of egregious sexism on the Internet (and sometimes outside of it[1]). Its usual targets include MRAs, PUAs, MGTOW, Christian Patriarchy types, other assorted anti-woman cranks, and whatever else caught the author's attention so that you don't have to read them yourself (they're all duly linked, but after you've checked a few you'll be just fine with trusting the blog). It's also hilarious.

It is written by David Futrelle, a freelance journalist who also blogs for Time and had previously covered the MRAs in various media.[2]

One good thing about the site is that the comment sections can go into hundreds of comments and still be relatively intelligent, apposite, and written by (usually) nice people, though it is officially not a safe space. This is largely helped by the site's tightened comment policy implemented in July 2015, in which comments by all brand-new posters are automatically sent through moderation (among other rules and filters).[3]

Futrelle also created Confused Cats Against Feminism, a viral Tumblr blog that parodies the "Women Against Feminism" movement.
