Answers for White Male Reactionaries….

Hello, all! Recently, The Amazing Atheist uploaded a compilation of himself and a few other atheist/skeptical YouTubers entitled: "Questions White Men have for SJWs!" ...it's about as nuanced and intellectually stimulating as it sounds. (Click the link to watch it, if you dare) Now, I actually tried to upload a video with an off-the-cuff response, but … Continue reading Answers for White Male Reactionaries….

Thoughts on the YouTube Vegan Community, PETA, and “No Such Thing as Bad Press”…
