        This is exactly why they should've been left alone. It's not like they were brigading anyone, unlike SRS.

      Fuck, my idiot of a doctor prescribed me a drug that interacts potentially badly with citalopram and didn't warn me. Grrrr.

      I read Schroedinger's Rapist as not trying to portray the day-to-day experiences of sexual abuse victims, but of normal, straight women in the western world.

      That thead of ERV's had a whole cavalcade of lunatics from both "sides" of this fucking debacle, and I'm pretty much finished with it. This was the first time that I've ever potsed on scienceblogs with any real gusto, and I ended up also posting on Pharyngula for the first time. I find this hilarious: I self-depricatingly called myself a twat in jest, and for the first 100 posts of the next Endless Thread I was taught a mighty good lesson about how one should never, ever use the word "twat", even if you are referring to yourself. This point of view was roundly agreed upon by all of the OMs and regulars in attendance, and then when I wouldn't agree with them I was told to just fuck off because I was a bitter, penis-stroking misogynist cupcake.

      For the record, I have no problem with Watson talking about how being propositioned in an elevator at 4am in a strange country made her feel uncomfortable. It's completely understandable. It was her outrageous treatment of Stef McGraw, and her wild overreaction to Richard Dawkins that give me the hump.

      And if I've learned anything from this debacle, especially as a result of reading ERV's blog, it's that not every woman is a trembling nervous wreck, constantly in fear of being savaged by those scary men-folk. I'm thinking about writing my own article on a related issue- tentative title: Schroedinger?s Bitch. All about those crazy, psycho hose-beast women who seem sane at first, but, given half a chance, will consume your mortal soul. I think it'll go down well in the comments at Pharynula.

      Hey mate, don't sweat it. It's really not worth trudging into in any real dpeth, as I have found to my cost. The Straight Dope:

      1. Man asks Watson if she wants coffee, which, admittedly, is perhaps a bit weird at 4am in an elevator.

      2. Watson makes a video saying, "that was weird".

      3. A random student named Stef McGraw writes a post on her blog saying, "yeah, it's not really a big deal".

      4. Watson calls Stef out by name, with Stef in the audience, during a keynote speech, and labels her misogynistic and a "part of the problem", with no way for Stef to respond.

      5. PZ posts in his blog saying that Watson was right to do so. always name names!!!!1111

      6. Dawkins posts a response in PZ's blog saying, "Jesus Christ, get over yourself Watson you self-important twat".

      7. Feminists all over the intarwebs go nuts calling Dawkins a privileged misogynist git and call for a boycotting of all of his books.

      Yeah- for me PZ, Watson, Benson, McCreight, Greta et al come out of this looking like a bunch of overreacting, over-sensitive toss pots.

      I've never been a fan of Rebecca Watson. I have no idea why she is asked to speak at so many humanist conventions. Personal vendettas aside, read this and this. The Elevator Guy fracas is a mere side-show, in my opinion, to Watson's childish and bullying behaviour. It saddens me to find that a whole cavalcade of rational people whom I admire are jumping on the Skepchick bandwagon, and pretending that Watson's behaviour in this debacle is exemplary (when it is actually rather shocking), and that Dawkins is some sort of raving misogynist pig. I'm a sad panda.

      Mr. DNA
      OK- I agree with you that asking a chick for coffee in an elevator at 4am is a bit weird. I wouldn't have the gumption to do it myself, and I would be very suspicious of any man who did it. But what about the way that Watson called out Stef McGraw during her keynote speech? I thought that that was ridiculous!

      Accelerando is... awesome. I'll tell you what I thought of it when I'm done... in about 3 months time at the rate I'm going.

      Oh yeah, and I posted this message on my own page. That's what you get for typing crap at 4:43am...

      Oh yeah, and I downloaded "Accelerando" last night- it's so dense with technical jargon that's it's hard to get into, but I shall persevere.

      Mr. DNA
      Yo Mess- so have you been following the Dawkins/Watson/Elevator Guy bullcrap at all? What's your take?
    28. Mr. DNA
      Mr. DNA
      I'm really glad that you and your immediate family have escaped relatively unscathed. Your part of the world is rumbling and grumbling at the moment, and I hope that you don't see another quake of this magnitude for a long time.
    29. Mr. DNA
      Mr. DNA
      I sat and watched the news for hours just after the 'quake hit, and the damage to the beautiful town of Christchurch is just terrible. The human cost is dreadful, and I hope that no-one close to you was affected.
