If you are really bored, you can help RationalWiki by writing stuff for us.

If you are really really bored, you can visit articles for deletion and see what needs pruning.

You can also help expand articles.

This is a place where:

  • You can add topics that you think might be good article subjects.
  • You can draw people's attention to articles which you think are mission-critical and/or need work.
  • You can find articles that are nearing front page status and bask in the reflected glory of getting "your" article on the main page.
  • You can find bits of random wikicruft that fitted nowhere else.

If you find yourself creating a stub-level article just to remove a link from the list, consider whether you should be doing it at all.

58The Encyclopedia of American Loons ([1]), which we have already quoted on this page.
46Since we have an article on Satoshi Kanazawa,Wikipedia's W.svg we may as well have one on Shintaro IshiharaWikipedia's W.svg-- basically the Japanese equivalent of the pundits on Fox News. Also Tarō Asō,Wikipedia's W.svg who wants the elderly to die.

255America's War on SexWikipedia's W.svg: The Attack on Law, Lust and Liberty, by Marty Klein. It's about the desperate efforts of the American Right to stop any form of sexual activity except vaginal intercourse between married couples in the missionary position with clothes on, the lights off and no birth control from taking place.
upneutraldown
256Something along the lines of race and police brutality in the United StatesWikipedia's W.svg – title flexible, obviously – is desperately needed. There are tons of major incidents that have received widespread coverage (Michael Brown and Eric Garner being probably the most prominent) that all follow the same pattern: cop shoots and kills black person in circumstances that didn't warrant violent action, then gets away with it. Cover the incidents, cover the statistics, cover right-wing media distortions of the incidents, cover protests, cover riots and maybe even online responses (#BlackLivesMatter).
upneutraldown
208 We should have an article on Christian supremacy,Wikipedia's W.svg the societal mindset in the US promotes the superiority of Christianity and by extension Christians, be they social or institutionalized norms. (Think of the phrase "It's the Christian thing to do.") Note: we already have an article on the United States as a Christian nation.
upneutraldown
164Colin Powell,Wikipedia's W.svg or how a moderate Republican got suckered into peddling the Iraq War.
upneutraldown
174HellstormEdit draft - Neo-Nazi "documentary" currently getting hundreds of thousands of views on youtube. While it's obvious propaganda, I don't personally have the full historical knowledge to give it a proper RWing. [EDIT] Start of a timeline-critique draft here: Draft:Hellstorm
upneutraldown
132Indigenous science,Wikipedia's W.svg an other way of knowing with a strange resemblance to made-up BS. Has an actual meaning, then getting culturally useful but scientifically questionable, but now basically just made-up BS. Spotted on /r/skeptic.
upneutraldown
132Florence Nightingale,Wikipedia's W.svg a nurse who was an early pioneer of evidence-based medicine.
upneutraldown
160False rape accusations.Wikipedia's W.svg While this is partially covered in the article on rape apology, it could use its own article, since it's the favourite canard of the "men's rights" movement and it seems to creep into any serious discussion about rape.
upneutraldown
108Fight The New Drug,Wikipedia's W.svg an organization dedicated to teaching the ills of pornography as well as treating addiction to porn using all the wrong methods. Full of Mormons and with some direct LDS Church support.
upneutraldown
127The Innocence ProjectWikipedia's W.svg is a non-profit legal organization that is committed to exonerating wrongly convicted people through the use of DNA testing and to reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld. To date, the work of the Innocence Project has led to the freeing of 337 wrongfully convicted people, including 20 who spent time on death row.

124The O. J. Simpson murder caseWikipedia's W.svg (officially the People of the State of California v. Orenthal James Simpson) was a criminal trial held at the Los Angeles County Superior Court in California. The former professional football star and actor O. J. Simpson was tried on two counts of murder after the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and waiter Ronald Lyle Goldman, in June 1994. We can write an article discussing the case not just as a cultural phenomenon but also discuss the overwhelming amount of logical fallacies (emotional appeal, Chewbacca defense, prosecutor's fallacy), dishonesty tactics and evidence gathering mistakes that took place during the trial and/or behind the scenes, which all had great impact on law in America. We can also discuss the impact on race relations that took place at the time. Simpson, being an African American, had a strong appeal toward the black community because of his seemingly squeaky clean image, charismatic personality and his rags to riches story with the majority of them believing he was innocent and being persecuted for his race. Because of this, there was a height of fear in Los Angeles of another race riot worse than the 1992 Los Angeles riots if he was prosecuted. Best books to use as research for the article would be Jeffrey Toobin's The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, and Vincent Bugliosi's Outrage: The Five Reasons O.J. Simpson Got Away With Murder.
upneutraldown
232Metabunk.orgEdit draft, a site dedicated to refuting conspiracy theories, which, unsurprisingly leads to accusations of being a shill. Countless Youtube videos have whistleblowers "exposing" Metabunk.
upneutraldown
119biofeedbackWikipedia's W.svg is the awareness and control of physical responses in the body that may be useful for treating stress and anxiety. Articles like brainwave woo link to the biofeedback page (which is currently a fork) and is referenced in many other articles so it is probably a good idea for all those links to go somewhere
upneutraldown
146Eric P. DollardCreate draft, an electrical engineer and inventor who claims to be continuing the works of Tesla and focusing on earthquake prediction[3][4] and what appears to be free energy.[5][6] His lab is mentioned on Wikipedia[7] as well as Powerpedia[8] and John Chappell's Natural Philosophy Society wiki.[9] He has had several successful Indiegogo campaigns.[10][11][12][13][14][15] He also has his own website,[16] and there even is an entire forum dedicated to his work.[17]

193Sutherland Springs church shooting,Wikipedia's W.svg and the Atomwaffen scum perpetrator Devin Patrick KelleyWikipedia's W.svg[18] A draft has been created at Devin Patrick Kelley.

141Secret Mysteries of America's BeginningsCreate draft, a four-part, twelve-hour documentary by Dr. Stan MonteithWikipedia's W.svg linking the founding fathers to every conspiracy theory imaginable. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
upneutraldown
136Alexander Technique,Wikipedia's W.svg it is mentioned on RW under Alternative Medicine Education and listed as a "Medical Cult" in Martin Gardner's Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science alongside iridodiagnosis and zone therapy, but we have no page explaining what the technique entails.
upneutraldown
116Cryptocurrency:Wikipedia's W.svg Just a redirect to Bitcoin. This should definitely be an article all of its own, between the conspiracy theories about it, the scams, and the miscellaneous other items.
upneutraldown
106Eye color,Wikipedia's W.svg specifically changing eye color that some claim correlates with their mood, weather, fatigue, or aging. I've also seen several versions of this eye color chart which does not accurately portray how Punnett squaresWikipedia's W.svg really work[19] and could potentially lead some to falsely believe that infidelity has occurred. This could be its own article about eye colors or even just a new section added to the already existing eye article.
upneutraldown
106Keto diet,Wikipedia's W.svg if not adequately covered by Low-carb diet. Here's /r/keto's "in a nutshell" explanation. Apparently the low-carb diet article has already got some criticism from the related communities, so the article should better appeal to the kind of people who'd pursue this stuff.
upneutraldown
127Making a MurdererWikipedia's W.svg is a popular Netflix documentary series outlining the case of Steven AveryWikipedia's W.svg and his nephew Brendan Dassey.Wikipedia's W.svg The pair were charged with the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach, but there have been several inconsistencies in the investigation that hint at serious corruption within the Manitowoc CountyWikipedia's W.svg Sheriff's Department. Avery had previously served 18 years for a wrongful conviction of sexual assault and attempted murder in 1985 and was to be compensated $36 million before these new charges arose.
upneutraldown
121AseaCreate draft, another classic example of a water woo pyramid scheme, they make bold health claims and use vague, nonscientific descriptions of free radicalsWikipedia's W.svg and "Redox Signaling Molecules", sometimes even mixing it with real science.[20][21] I found this quote regarding the ingredients: "Recently, a company called ASEA, was able to take sodium, chloride, hydrogen and oxygen (salt water) molecules, separate them and recombine them to form oxidants (free radicals) and reductants (which neutralize oxidants)."[22] They also have a YouTube channel.[23]
upneutraldown
1085-HTP,Wikipedia's W.svg a supplement commonly advertised as a treatment for everything from depression to migraines to OCD by increasing serum levels of serotonin. Regardless of whether it works for these maladies it can be dangerous to take without taking CarbidopaWikipedia's W.svg alongside to regulate it, because too much peripheral serotonin can damage the heart.
upneutraldown
101FunVaxCreate draft, short for "Fundamentalist Vaccine", is the vaccine for religious fundamentalism described in a video allegedly leaked from the Pentagon[24] and later sensationalized popularized by Natural News.[25] It works by using a viral vector that inhibits/decreases the expression of the VMAT2Wikipedia's W.svg gene[26] which has also been referred to as the "God gene".Wikipedia's W.svg[27] A copy of the final report can be found here.

Recent[edit]

These are the most recent ideas for new articles. Remove if downvoted to death. Note: We have a huge archive of hundreds of article requests dating back to RationalWiki's creation in 2009 (archive 5, archive 4, archive 3, and archive 2) that also deserve consideration.
upneutraldown
2New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist MovementCreate draft, a loose confederation of venomous hate, sponsor of the anti-LGBT conference Make America Straight Again, whose membership includes noted hate speech maniac Steven Anderson.
upneutraldown
5Philip DeFranco,Wikipedia's W.svg a news commentator and YouTuber who basically goes over current events with a rather centrist tone. There are times, despite meaning well in his commentary, that he can be a useful idiot due to his tendency to attract reactionaries to his fanbase on account of his apologism for right-wingers at times and also adding onto the hysteria on how NYT was supposedly "labeling him far-right" because he popped up in a background of various YouTubers in an article of a young adult who was radicalized by YouTubers.
upneutraldown
3J.B.S. Haldane,Wikipedia's W.svg pioneering geneticist/evolutionary biologist, statistician, scientific populariser, atheist, rationalist ... and Stalinist. His ideas on eugenics and human reproduction influenced Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. He also had a well-known feud with C.S. Lewis.[2][3][4] He's mentioned in several articles on this wiki.
upneutraldown
5Something around website blocks and bans,Wikipedia's W.svg Shadow banning,Wikipedia's W.svg and similar topics. The alt-right and similar groups are fond of complaining about "ghost banning", "shadow banning", etc, where they're supposedly denied access to different social media sites by stealth, or their posts are mysteriously deprioritized or hidden. An overview of what this means, whether this is actually possible on different sites, etc, would be useful. Wikipedia mentions a conspiracy theory about Twitter shadow banning Republicans.[5]
upneutraldown
28The Kyshtym dwarfWikipedia's W.svg or Aleshenka / Alyoshenka was a small humanoid body found near Kyshtym, Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia.[28] According to genetic experts at the Moscow Vavilov Institute of General Genetics, DNA analysis of the clothes Alyoshenka was wrapped in revealed evidence that his DNA was of unknown origin. It was also tested for radiation, but did not show high radiation levels.[29][30]
upneutraldown
28JackalopesWikipedia's W.svg are the elusive horned rabbitsWikipedia's W.svg of the Wild West. They are often said to be a tall tale, although Shope papillomaWikipedia's W.svg is actually quite common among rabbits and may provide an explanation other than taxidermy.
upneutraldown
3A Hat in Time,Wikipedia's W.svg an indie platformer that has seen its fair share of controversies from Jontron to Trans Flags.
upneutraldown
9Otto Strasser,Wikipedia's W.svg Nazi who opposed Hitler, had another brother who did the same thing known as Gregor Strasser. He is known for creating the ideology of Strasserism which is basically some weird form of socialism but with a mix of nationalism (more worthy of actually being called national socialism).
upneutraldown
335GWikipedia's W.svg (Draft:5G) is the next generation of mobile phone technology, and the subject of a lot of rumor and urban legends, much of it recycling old worries about Mobile phone radiation frying our brains, but some new stuff too. There's a lot of paranoia about "5G is killing birds!"[6] Also more legitimate complaints about it messing with weather forecasting radar[7] and the whole Huawei controversy[8]. With 5G actually coming into service in various countries, this is going to get more and more important.
upneutraldown
37Deepfake,Wikipedia's W.svg technology that supposedly allows you to create video of anybody saying or doing anything. There's a lot of panic about it, and applications for the technology in fake news, porn, fraud, blackmail, etc, but some stories suggest it's still far from offering an easy way of creating convincing fake videos.[9] So it's relevant both for its potential at spreading misinformation and for the exaggerated moral panic aspects.
upneutraldown
27WhalesWikipedia's W.svg and specifically whaling, which is the subject of some scientific debate (basically the Norwegians and Japanese claim it's incredibly important for science that they kill whales, but nobody else believes them). We have a section on Whaling in Japan (Japan#Whaling) and an article on Whale Wars, but no overview that discusses the science. There is also potential material about whale biology, whale evolution, the keeping of killer whales in parks, conservation, whether whales are more deserving than other animals, and the history of whaling, that may be relevant (see e.g. Oil#Whale oil, and compare Dolphin).
upneutraldown
2Joseph EverettCreate draft, known for his YouTube channel What I've Learned, which has nearly 1 million subscribers and over 64 million video views. Has made videos promoting low-carb dieting for general weight loss, statin denialism, antidepressant denialism, and NoFap. However, he has high production values and claims to be pro-science, so perhaps it can be presumed that he's doing this all in good faith? According to Everett: "This is about connecting the dots, making conclusions and weighing that against modern dogma." Seems like the perfect subject for a RationalWiki article.
upneutraldown
5Inner Peace MovementCreate draft, a 501(c)(3) non-profit group founded in 1964 with a trademarked name that has been the subject of court disputes. Their professed mission is to "help people clarify their minds and balance their spiritual direction."

16Vox (political party),Wikipedia's W.svg Spanish populist far-right party becoming a significant electoral force.

upneutraldown
42Andrew Yang,Wikipedia's W.svg is a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate currently mentioned merely in small sections on the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination and basic income pages. We definitely need a separate article on Yang, considering his rising popularity, how much of his campaign and policies he claims are based on math and science, and the unfortunate alt-right support he's gotten despite being a progressive. A draft can be found at Draft:Andrew Yang.
upneutraldown
49Bill WeldWikipedia's W.svg Currently a redirect to the 2020 Republican Party presidential nomination article. He's an interesting candidate not only for his (comparatively) progressive views and the mere fact that he's the only candidate running against Trump in the RNC, but he was also previously a member of the Libertarian party and carries some of their support, so I think he deserves his own article.
upneutraldown
8The Atheist DelusionCreate draft is a "response to the famous "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins, and the points it makes are very flawed to say the least.
upneutraldown
7Mammon,Wikipedia's W.svg the Hebrew term for money and greed, personified in medieval times as a literal being.

20I overheard four liberals in a hipster cafe saying that conservative wannabe-provocateur, serial self-owner and walking punchline Jacob WohlWikipedia's W.svg deserves an RW article, just so we can laugh at him some more.
upneutraldown
2The Binding of IsaacWikipedia's W.svg Is a 2011 indie game with randomly generated dungeons and over 500+ items. I'm suggesting this one because of the game's criticisms of Religion and the Bible and how the entire thing is somehow a controversy magnet that has avoided any actual controversy.
upneutraldown
9Vampire facialsWikipedia's W.svg (or platelet-rich plasma facials) are the latest beauty craze, apparently involving having blood removed from your body and injected into your face. They're loved by Goop, but Kim Kardashian's was less successful, and they have been linked to 2 cases of HIV transmission in New Mexico.[10][11]
upneutraldown
21Sweatshop,Wikipedia's W.svg a workplace where people are employed for long hours with poor working conditions. This wiki currently only has a brief mention of sweatshops in the Globalization article but there really needs to be an article about sweatshops not just a paragraph.
upneutraldown
65FeministWikiEdit draft[35] is a website run by TERFs who, in a manner indistinguishable from that of the editors at Conservapedia, claimed "'RationalWiki' is a whacksite long run by teenage liberals who follow queer theory. (An ideology that supports prostitution and pedophilia because of its obsession with 'breaking taboos.'"[36] FeministWiki has repeatedly been caught promoting conservative Christian front organisations.[37] The person who runs the FeministWiki Twitter account is a self-admitted child molester who was previously suspended from Twitter.[38] All of the information mentioned above warrants a RationalWiki article for this TERF version of Conservapedia.

57Charleston church shooting,Wikipedia's W.svg and the white supremacist Dylann RoofWikipedia's W.svg who massacred nine African American people at a church in 2015. He has been pictured wearing the flags of Rhodesia and apartheid-era South Africa, as well as the Confederate flag. In 2017, he became the first person in the US to be sentenced to death for federal hate crimes.
upneutraldown
56United Constitutional Patriots,Wikipedia's W.svg a right-wing militia group in New Mexico that has been illegally detaining kidnapping immigrants at gunpoint while they are attempting to cross the border. Their felonious leader Larry Mitchell Hopkins was recently arrested by the FBI on firearms charges.[39] There is also an associated Facebook page.[40]
upneutraldown
3GhoulWikipedia's W.svg We already have a page about folklore things, like zombies, vampires, ghosts & aliens. So, why not have one about Ghouls? Wikipedia has one, but seeing that article and their talk page, I think we can safely assume that their shitty NPOV is also at work here and that they literally believe in ghouls (especially if you look at some of those "experts" that claim to have knowledge about these things...)...

9VeggieTalesWikipedia's W.svg - a Christian Indoctrination program disguised as a children's show.

72Vanguard America,Wikipedia's W.svg an American white supremacist, neo-Nazi, neo-fascist hate group that has been attached to several acts of violence and domestic terrorism, including the car attack in Charlottesville on people protesting the Unite the Right rally. The perpetrator of the attack, James Alex Fields Jr., had been seen at the rally wielding a shield distributed by Vanguard America. The organization is also a member of the Nationalist Front.Wikipedia's W.svg
upneutraldown
67New Zealand First,Wikipedia's W.svg a populist, anti-immigrant party in New Zealand, currently part of the government coalition with the Labour Party. With the focus on racism and anti-immigrant feeling after the Christchurch terrorist attacks, an article would be timely. Plus they're actually in government.
upneutraldown
56Roanoke colonyWikipedia's W.svg - which has two complementary aspects. Firstly there is the question of what happened to the mysterious lost colony, with various theories and contested "evidence" including the Dare StonesWikipedia's W.svg (now recognised as fakes) and other more recent finds[12][13]. But there's also the importance of Roanoke (and its newborn inhabitant Virginia DareWikipedia's W.svg) for American white nationalism (most obviously VDARE but it extends way beyond it - the article Pocahontas mentions crazy theories that Pocahontas was descended from VD which relate to the whole system behind segregation); Andrew Lawler wrote a book on it[14]).
upneutraldown
17Stochastic terrorismWikipedia's W.svg and/or Lone wolfWikipedia's W.svg - terms used to describe terrorist attacks carried by by an individual but inspired by extremist groups and public figures. It started with Daesh but has horseshoed over to the far right.
upneutraldown
7Renaud Camus,Wikipedia's W.svg a gay French writer who is partially known for his connection to the racist "Great Replacement" conspiracy theory... a theory that helped in motivating the man behind the Christchurch terrorist attacks. His name redirects to an article on the aforementioned great replacement theory, but he should probably have his own article.
upneutraldown
8Rosa LuxembourgWikipedia's W.svg: Polish revolutionary socialist who had a large impact on history. She's the most well-known female socialist theorist. I'm surprised there isn't already an article on her.
upneutraldown
10Abortion dopingWikipedia's W.svg - an urban legend spread by anti-abortion campaigners that Soviet/communist athletes deliberately got themselves pregnant and then had abortions for the increase in testosterone and other hormones that pregnancy gives. The Wikipedia article debunks the rumors (which were sourced to someone pretending to be a Russian athlete) but doesn't mention how they've been used by anti-abortion campaigners.

451080;Wikipedia's W.svg pesticide used to control invasive species in New Zealand and save NZ's native wildlife. Subject of all sorts of ridiculous crazy conspiracy nonsense akin to anti-vaxx nonsense. See Wikipedia and http://www.1080facts.co.nz/

33Overtoun BridgeWikipedia's W.svg, the "dog suicide bridge"[15], a bridge in Scotland where lots of dogs reportedly commit suicide by jumping off the side. This has got press attention for a while, with some blaming supernatural influences and others suggesting bizarre canine-psychological factors.
upneutraldown
59SteviaWikipedia's W.svg currently has a one-line reference under Sweetener, but probably deserves more due to how common it is in food products currently. A traditional sweetener containing various sweet-tasting extracts that can be extracted easily just by boiling the leaves, stevia is incredibly marketable under the Naturalistic fallacy despite the fact that commercial stevia-based sweeteners are standardised extract concentrations made in labs. There is some fear it causes cancer (it doesn't unless you're eating a terrifying amount of it), some enthusiasm that it can help manage diabetic sugar cravings and people trying to lose weight (which, used sensibly as a substitute for sugar and not as a magical potion, it does), and a few weirdos convinced that it can cure cancer, cure depression, and provide infinite energy to earth from "cold fission".

-6The Wizard of OzWikipedia's W.svg books by L. Frank BaumWikipedia's W.svg and the films thereof, which have a lot of people trying to guess allegorical meanings (many with RW-relevant themes, from Rosicrucianism to the Gold standard), and inspired a lot of urban legends.

13Captain MarvelWikipedia's W.svg is a movie that somehow managed to attract the outrage of conservatives, MRAs, Gamergaters, and alt-righters who didn't even watch it. (And which, at the same time, Marvel marketed as though it were the first movie to feature a strong female character evar.)

12An Open SecretWikipedia's W.svg is a 2015 documentary covering the child sex abuses at the Digital Entertainment Network, notable for its troubled production and lack of a theatrical release. Since then, producers Gabe Hoffman and Matt Valentinas have had no contact with director Amy Berg and have been actively tweeting from the film's Twitter account. They have taken a sensationalist approach, frequently tweeting news about pedophiles and "the evil liberal media" protecting them, associating with far-right figures such as Alex Jones and Mike Cernovich, including support for Donald Trump.

7Ethan Van Sciver,Wikipedia's W.svg an American comic book artist known for illustrating and/or drawing covers primarily for DC and Marvel. Van Sciver has recently revealed himself to be an alt-right scumbag by becoming a central figure in the recent Comicsgate campaign, a campaign spearheaded by misogynistic, racist and anti-LGBTQI+ bigots who are butthurt about the idea of members of those communities being fairly and equally represented in the comic book medium. Comicsgate is essentially Gamergate but for comics instead of games, it's a campaign created by and for the Alt-right.

On his radio show, JLP Talk, he thanked God and the white people for enslaving black people and has stated that blacks were better off under Jim Crow laws. Peterson also dislikes feminism and believe women shouldn't even be allowed to vote. See Draft:Jesse Lee Peterson.

8NewsGuard,Wikipedia's W.svg a fact-checking service recently integrated into Microsoft's Edge browser. While this has provided some hilarity[16], there are also concerns over whether it's a good idea to integrate this functionality into browsers with the attendant capacity for censorship and privacy violation. There are specific concerns about NewsGuard: its board has links to the CIA and George W. Bush administration, and don't all have a good record when it comes to factual accuracy, and its business model and funding are unclear.[17] But overall: good or bad?
