Goodness gracious; the garbage that’s out there is truly, truly appalling. Just when you think you’ve already seen the worst of it, you hear of something called a Milo Yiannopoulos. A promoter of sexism, homophobia, his personal variety of religion and any and every dog-whistle style cliche which would elicit applause from a bunch of under-educated idiots who think creationism can be classified as science. It seems the only credential necessary for someone to get on the news or write in conservative publications these days is to promote hate and ignorance.
I leave you with pharyngula: ” There was a recent debate on British television between Milo Yiannopoulos and Emily Grossman on Sexism in Science. I have no idea why Yiannopoulos was even invited; he’s got no qualifications at all to be talking about this stuff. I guess he was the representative for sexism, while Grossman was there to represent science.”
