Criticism of Skepchick

See: Elevatorgate and Atheism and women and Atheism and rape

Amanda Read wrote in the Washington Times that she believed Rebecca Watson and the writers at Shepchick were behaving hypocritically about the Elevatorgate controversy and declared:

The point is that because the issue is sexism in the atheist movement, perceptions of sexism are not based on absolute principle, but on relative emotion.

Watson speaks out against the sexual objectification of women, but she apparently sees nothing wrong with the pinup calendars that she and her female atheist friends publish. Myers defended her views on his blog, but only last year he linked to an interesting interview with Nina Hartley, a feminist atheist who sees nothing wrong with women performing as sex workers.

You see, sexism and the exploitation of women are not immoral to godless women as long as such things are on their terms.[2]

According to Skepchick, "Skepchick is a group of women (and one deserving guy) who write about science, skepticism, feminism, atheism, secularism, and pseudoscience".[3] Yet despite medical science having an vast amount of evidence pointing out the health risks of excess weight and medical science, exercise science, and nutritional science having many effective measures to lose weight, Skepchick has had writers who are overweight - namely Amy Davis Roth and Heina Dadabhoy (see sections below).
