About a year ago I watched a very good skeptics in the pub speaker on YouTube. She was speaking at one of the monthly meetings. Does anyone know who she is? I cannot find any trace of the video now. She was an academic debunking the trend.

No but a lot of Sitp groups are on twitter plus the main organisation worth tweeting them

Was it Rebecca Riley-Cooper? She's done a few skeptics in the pub talks on gender identity and she's brilliant.

Rebecca Reilly-Cooper is fab!

This would be Rebecca Reilly-Cooper. I was at this meeting, it was held in a microbrewery!

I also saw her do the same talk in Salford, a very earnest libfem argued the way to address women's fear of male violence was to educate women that not all men are potential rapists or perpetrators of sexual assault.

It's a view that gets a regular airing right here on this board, miranda. We're supposed to empowerfulise our way out of the fear, but we're just too infantilised. So sad.

Yes! That is the one! Thank you!

There are so many to choose from venus, although my present favourite is the one where women who are repeatedly assaulted need to take responsibility for that.

oh, none in particular, venus
