Look! – the F-Word linked to my posts on rape lies.

False allegations
Part 1 – Katie Davis’ story, and idiotic statistics.
Part 2 – Sally Henderson’s story, and an analysis of Eugene Kanin’s 41%.
Part 3 – More analysis of studies – McDowell (27% / 60%) and “Gap or Chasm?” (3%)
Part 4 – Discussion of the FBI statistic that 8% of rape reports are “unfounded”.

F-Word post: Dear Neighbours

So – hello to any newcomers from the F-Word. Hope you find something nice to cheer you up after the misery that is investigating statistics on false rape allegations.


I can’t help but notice the number of hits I am getting on my Lactophilia post. I hope this is from hordes of proto-feminists trying to work out why Juggmeister videos make them feel queasy.

Meanwhile, will the sick individual who found me by searching for “creatures and aliens raping human female” kindly get some help? Also, please get out of my brain.

Woolly Woo
(Maia’s Woolly Woo says “Welcome” to Radfem Carnival-goers.)

So I feel I should capitalise on all the traffic that this carnival exposure is generating by posting something really inspiring, dynamic and thought-provoking RIGHT NOW.

Except I’ve been too busy tonight making a fish video.

Also, it’s not as though I blog for the traffic, is it? If I did, then I would spend my life hanging out on other people’s widely-read blogs, making provocative comments, and waiting for people to click on my link, right?*

(*Actually, I inadvertantly did that, too – sort of. I linked to a post on IBTP and got a gazillion hits from people clicking on the trackback. This internet stuff is way complicated.)

Anyhow, compromise time. If you want to see Things I Have Blogged, with specific reference to Things that may be of radfem interest, take a look below. It’s just a bunch of links from the archive, but it might impress ya. Humph.

If none of that floats your radfem boat, you may be better off on some other blog, right?

I’ve finally got sick of the sight of perverts, and with a bit luck they will soon stop infesting my “What’s hot?” list (sidebar, right) with their tacky search terms.

See here for details.

Update: Just realised I shot myself in the foot here. The whole point of this was to cut down the traffic to the post, and I’ve just given you a link. Doh. Still, it’ll take a day or two for the idiot factor to work its way out of the system anyway – so click away!

Moving InMy more observant reader will have spotted that I have been settling in to WordPress.

I still have some work to do, but progress is happening. And I have that feeling that you get after moving into a new house, when despite the fact that you still have boxes everywhere, you realise that you think of this new place as home.

I have noticed that traffic to my book blog is low to non-existent. Oh, loyal readers, how can you bruise my fragile ego this way? Or is that my more observant reader has been on holiday and nobody else has spotted that Touchingly Naive Books has been settling in to WordPress as well? Ho-hum. Take a look. I haven’t got the curtains up yet, but you can still cast your eyes over recent gems including the excellent Cunt, the execrable Moby Dick, and the teenaged Noughts and Crosses.

See here for a discussion of Shulamith Firestone’s The Dialectic of Sex.

And, see here for my own book-blog post.

UPDATE: extra Shulathon post, free of charge.

Lately, I’m feeling somewhat overwhelmed by all the things I want to write about, and completely lack the energy to do those topics justice. So, today, a cop-out.

What Colour Should Your Blog Be?

Your Blog Should Be Green

Your blog is smart and thoughtful – not a lot of fluff.
You enjoy a good discussion, especially if it involves picking apart ideas.
However, you tend to get easily annoyed by any thoughtless (er – make that “stupid and misogynist” and I’ll agree) comments in your blog.

Any votes for a change of colour scheme?
