RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

For a change, an employee at the company that produces the game grew a spine and issued a statement to the effect of: "Yes, dipshits, there exists such a thing as people with two X chromosomes, and if this fact offends you, you are free to take your business elsewhere." Alas, said employee happened to be female, so you can guess the results...
