It’s Not About Women. It’s All About Men.

Last week, a 17 year old girl was stabbed to death in broad daylight less than a kilometer from her home. She was alone, but had no reason to be fearful for her safety. The man who killed was a stranger to her. The murder occurred in an inner suburb of Melbourne, and was a completely random attack. It’s a tragedy, and my heart goes out to Masa Vukotic’s family and friends. This is something that nobody deserves, and in a better...

The Red Pill Of Victimhood

It seems to me that there is a tendency within people who are in privileged positions to vehemently cry foul when they are called out on their privilege. Take for example the MRA (Men’s Rights Activist) movement. Their whole spiel is that feminism has gone too far, and that in return men are oppressed at the hands of “feminazis”.

Birth, Death, and Other Trivialities

  Religions worldwide primarily concern themselves with an attempt to answer 2 questions: 1. Where did we come from? 2. What happens after we die?

Our obsession with birth and death are justified; they are the two most important things that will happen to you in your lifetime. The question of what lies on either...

4 Questions For An Atheist

Later this week I have been asked by Deakin University to sit for an interview for them to use as content for their “World Religions” course. During the interview I will be asked 4 questions, and if my answers are any good, my words will be used as a voice for atheism in the course itself. Quite a daunting task, and since my voice will be used as representation of atheism and atheists in the world at large, I thought it might be a...
