Googlebombs Away!

There is a serious problem on the internets. When I google the word "abortion" the first hit is for an extremely creepy website, www.abortionfacts.com (these assholes get no link-love from me). Abortionfacts.com is creepy because it isn't immediately obvious what they're about, but 10 seconds of clicking and reading reveals them to be of the pregnancy crisis centre variety. A bunch of pretend-compassionate assholes who try their darnedest to deceive women who are pregnant and don't want to be out of getting abortions. These people are scary.

Unfortunately, the only way to get them off the front page is to get enforced childbirth supporters to stop linking to them, and we can't do that (at least not without some 1337 h4xx1n9 5k1llz, and certainly not legally). What we can do, however, is googlebomb something else so that these assholes are no longer the top hit.

I recommend the National Abortion Federation. They're already the second ghit, so we don't have far to go. It's real simple. All you gotta do is put a link to the National Abortion Federation, using the word abortion as the link (just like I've been doing here), on the front page of your blog or website. So, whaddaya say? Shall we bump these low down dirty deceivers off the top of the list?


Neglectful Blogger

And it's not going to get much better. Summer's just way to interesting to spend indoors rambling on the internets.

I do have a couple of announcements, however.

1) There is now a Canadian Hollaback site!! This is very exciting. They need as much publicity as possible, since they don't have any submissions yet, so if you're reading this and you have a blog of your very own, please make an announcement. HBCan is accepting submissions at hollabackcanada@gmail.com.

2) There's a new blog by and for pro-feminist men. It's pretty cool. I especially like this post of Dave's (who also has his own blog here). Be sure to read the comments thread.

Both these links will be going into the sidebar whenever I get around to it.



The 36th Skeptics' Circle is up.

The first post, by Skeptico, should be required reading for anyone who thinks "you never know, just because we can't see it doesn't mean there's nothing to this psi stuff."

Also, here is an excerpt from the Science Creative Quarterly's Creationist FAQ.

Q: Is there any other evidence for creationism besides the Bible?
A: Yes.

Q: Can you give us some?
A: Yes.

Q: Could you give us a specific example?
A: Yes.

Q: What would be a specific example of evidence for Creationism?
A: I’ve already answered that question.
Getting some serious deja vu here.
