Speaking of privilege, Dara Ó Briain is having a row with a bunch of internet-feminists, after his comments on the BBC's ban on all-male panel programs :lol:

Dara is of course absolutely right. And when you consider that a job like stand-up comedy is not controlled by a boardroom full of old boys, there is absolutely nothing stopping women pursuing a career in comedy. Yet they must, on the whole, be choosing not to.

Interesting article.

I notice they were able to find a couple of female comedians who stated they wouldn't appear on the shows - or particular shows in Brand's case - before the ban. One, Caitlin Moran, explicitly gives as the reason that she did not want to look like a "token woman". As O'Briain points out, this policy has a pretty good chance of backfiring.

I would have thought panel shows already had a higher female-to-male ratio than the population of comedians in general. The most generous figure I've heard is one in ten.

Prologue: New member: not white, not male, not straight, not American has problems with Nice Guys.
A+ likes that.
http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5950

Act 1: New member doesn't like Buddhism, prefers atheism.
A+ thinks new member is surely all right.
http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=5956

Act 2: New member thinks it's dehumanising to refer to rich people as a group as violent bigots.
R'uh r'oh! It's not going so well.
http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5955

Act 3: New member is an animal liberationist vegan, who thinks sentience is a bad criterion for not eating animals, as it would be ok for some severely disabled people to be eaten using that criterion.
A+: Are you calling disabled people lower than pigs! STFU
http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5960

Epilogue: New member announces that A+ is not their scene.
A+ decides it was obvious from the start that they were a troll sent by the Slymepit. :roll:

Twitter is utterly soul crushing. I really like Dara O'Briain on the telly and even when I've read the odd article he's written, but the constant anger and confrontation on there does not do him justice.

After a quick descent into madness and irrelevance and a long slow decline into oblivion, the Atheism Plus forum, blog and Wiki are now dead. My guess is that this is due to lack of a (semi)knowledgable administrator that can fix the database errors.

Last time I looked out of curiosity, the forum was getting about 3 posts a day, so I can understand why nobody would be arsed fixing it if it broke.

No server even answers at their URL any longer.

So much for the “plus”.

Yes, women may be choosing not to pursue stand up comedy.

There must be some reasons...

...

That objection, at least, can be fixed, by referring to the sentience of animal species instead of individual animals.
