Dr Carol Tavris gave a talk – now available on Youtube – called Who’s Lying, Who’s Self-Justifying: Origins of the He Said/She Said Gap in Sexual Allegations. The talk was for 2014’s The Amazing Meeting (TAM), an annual gathering of skeptics, rationalists, atheists, and scientifically minded people.
Strangely, Skeptic Magazine’s Youtube channel hid Tavris’s talk from its video list, and the direct link contains a warning to think twice before sharing.
Why? Her talk is thoughtful, well reasoned, and does not engage in any victim blaming.
But perhaps skeptics are afraid of the Atheism Plus crowd, which seeks to metaphorically crucify anyone they deem politically incorrect. If rational thought is politically incorrect then we need more of it, not less.
So please, share this link far and wide.
