PZ DAWKINS & RICHARD MYERS: BOSOM BUDDIES OR JUST ANOTHER PAIR OF TITS?

Myers vs. Dawkins: who's on first base?

Dearie me, seems like trouble at mill over at t’ Pharyngula blog of late.

Messr’s Dawkins and Myers don’t seem to see eye to eye abour an incident that occurred at a recent atheist conference in Dublin. One of the delegates, Rebecca Watson, was in the hotel elevator at 4.00am on the way back to her room when this guy told her that he found her very interesting and asked if she wanted to come back to his room for coffee – at 4.00am!!! (Btw…a similar thing happened to me once and I was creeped out by it too). At the very least 4.00am is a funny time to have a cup of coffee! (Unless you’re on shift work that is).

Anyway, Rebecca Watson mentioned this incident (amongst other things) on an internet video blog. Little did she know that it would spark such a huge debate within atheist circles.

Anyway, enter Richard Dawkins, who posted on Myers’ Pharyngula blog basically saying that he believed she was talking a load of rubbish and was being ridiculous to feel creeped out by this. Dawkins’ comments led many to condemn him as misogynist.

Now as Professor Myers claims to be such an oh so big feminist you’d expect him to condemn Dawkins’ words, wouldn’t you? So what was Myers’ response? A timid little: “ooh…I actually disagree with Richard”.

If that had been anybody (sorry a ‘nobody’) else posting on Pharyngula you would have jumped down their throat, jumped up and down a little, regurgitated ya bad self through their mouth in the form of rationalist vomit (not ectoplasm) then cut off their head and shit down their neck.

But ya see, Dawkins n’ Myers just happen to be best buddies and moreover – unlike the majority of the rest of us – feel that they are important people who matter. So the grand professor cautiously tried not to upset the apple cart and hoped that the furore will die down and hopes no-one will realise what a pathetic sexist, cowardly, transphobic charlatan he really is.

Now who ya callin’ *insipid*, Professor Myers?

    I have read Ms Watson’s blog post about this incident. Her exasperated reaction is exactly what I would expect from an American woman intellectual. That part of the human community has been under strong feminist influence for 40 years, altho the influence in recent years is not necessarily conscious. And feminism condemns what that fellow did.
    It is not a good idea at all to try to strike up an acquaintance with an American woman intellectual in a hotel lift at 4AM. It is not a good idea to invite her back to your room at any time of day. If you want to chat with her, invite her to the hotel’s coffee shop, which she can easily leave if she does not take a fancy to you, and where the presence of others is likely to shame you into behaving yourself.
