Skepchick: Critical thinking at its finest

Skepchick is a group of women (and one deserving guy) who write about science, skepticism, and pseudoscience. With intelligence, curiosity, and occasional snark, the group tackles diverse topics from astronomy to astrology, psychics to psychology."

The site is well known not only for busting popular myths, fads and fallacies, but also for its sexy calendars of nude and near-nude skeptical women and men.

Watch a YouTube video interview with Rebecca Watson, founder of

(I like the site and its founder, but it's odd that she chose this name for it and produces such a calendar. It seems that if a man accidentally uses the terms 'chick', 'girl' or 'lady' instead of 'woman' -- or dares to look at a picture of a naked woman -- he cops a sock in the eye, loses his job, or is hauled before the courts. Still, I hope you enjoy the site regardless of these unfair anomalies of feminist gender politics. I like Skepchick. It's great to see Reason coming out of the closet at last.)
