'Rag and Muffin' Update
The eyecatch image up there is actually from the light novel series Gosick , which was adapted into one of my favorite anime shows (and which I just found out is no longer free online . . . curses!).  Anyway, I thought it made an appropriate header because ...

Addendum: Anatomy of the SJW
Yesterday, I posted on the essay by the perpetually outraged K. Tempest Bradford , who recommends that you de-Jew your library and read only approved Aryan authors. A reader wonders if she made an honest mistake and simply doesn't realize that telling peopl...

#Ashtag Wednesday
Ash. Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent in the Western Church.  Today, through fasting and prayer, we begin the preparation for the feast of Easter. I, of course, am giving up magical girls for Lent.  And don't forget that it's not too late to jo...
Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent in the Western Church. Today, through fasting and prayer, we begin the preparation for the feast of Easter. I, of course, am giving up magical girls for Lent. And don't forget that it's not too late to join the Sci Fi Catholic Lenten Read-a-Thon.

Celebrate St. Valentine's Day Today
Today is the feast of St. Valentine, and this year it is particularly important to remember it, since Hollywood, in its wisdom, has chosen to degrade the day with the release of Fifty Shades of Woman-Beating, or, as I recently saw someone call it, Desperate...

Give Aid to the International Lord of Hate
Larry Correia, who probably doesn't want to be associated in any way, shape, or form with the above picture, has been contacted by a reporter, and he's turning to his readers for help: Hey, Monster Hunter Nation and Sad Puppies Supporters, I’ve been approac...
Hey, Monster Hunter Nation and Sad Puppies Supporters, I've been approached by a major media outlet gathering information about our little corner of the culture war. I mentioned bias, and specifically anti-conservative bias among the voters. They asked if I had links to blog posts, comments, ...

Writing for Message, not to Entertain
I originally wrote and published this essay on this blog many, many moons ago, but I think it apropos to reprint it in light of recent discussions of Social Justice Warriors and their determination to place message above entertainment in storytelling. Read...

The Joyless and Ungrateful
Blogs I read are abuzz because of an incredibly stupid, shrill, scolding little article by somebody named K. Tempest Bradford , whom I vaguely think I've heard of, once. Sweet mother of pearl, she's actually wagging her finger! Anyway, this special snowflak...
Anyway, this special snowflake is what they call a "Social Justice Warrior," that is, a priggish little hothouse flower who thinks it's her duty to tell everybody else what to do, and what she wants you to do is pledge, for a year, to stop reading, and I quote, "White, Straight, Cis Male Authors ...

A Brief Note on the Nature of God
A reader brings up the subject of panentheism  and identifies it as a Catholic doctrine.  That is an understandable mistake, but incorrect. Panentheism, if you don't know what that is, is a sort of modified pantheism, the belief that the universe is part of...

The Intellectual Bankruptcy of Moral Relativism: A Case Study

Readers here may not know, and may be glad that they do not know, that I have written My Little Pony fan fiction, and that I am mildly internet-famous (and even a little internet-infamous) for one particular story, A Mighty Demon Slayer Grooms Some Ponies, which is loosely based on the ...

Why It's Socially Unacceptable to Do Anything
I can't find this video funny because I'm a CRM archaeologist; I work in a field where everyone has Anthropology degrees, which means they were spoonfed cultural Marxism all through college and now think NPR is seriously intellectual. I try to find solace i...

I don't get it. I do not see a single instance of sailing in this entire cartoon. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal. And seriously, throw another noun into that title, because it doesn't have enough. Starring Kotono Mitsuishi, Ryo Hirohashi, and Kenji Nojima. Story by Yuji Kobayashi and Naeoko ...
