A Bayesian Analysis of the Accusations against Richard Carrier

And yet another ally cum cishet white male turns out to be a dangerous predator who has been haunting our safe spaces. Yeah, I'm talking about the amazing Dr. Richard Carrier, a PhD from Columbia University, as he never forgets to remind us. He's just been kicked out of the SSA (Secular Student Alliance) and Skepticon, and would have been removed from FTB if he hadn't pre-emptively removed himself. Heina Dadabhoy, Greta Christina, and Stephanie Zvan have written about his spiel, and that should have been the end of all rational debate, were it not for the good doctor himself. The entitled scumbag has now threatened to sue for defamation. We don't know yet who he plans to sue. But what's worse, he also threatens to spill the beans on the sex lives of his adversaries. Harmless polyamorous orgies at atheist/skeptic conferences will now perhaps be regretted by those of us who participated. Can you sink any deeper? Not in my estimation. What Heina, Rebecca, and PZ did after hours is nobody's business.

Now, the accusations are clear enough: Carrier, when invited as speaker to SSA events, sees students as potential fuck toys, and acts accordingly. A formal complaint of sexual harassment, including unwanted touching, has been filed. I believe the victim. Especially, because she indicated that she knows of similar cases. And because Carrier himself had already confessed of engaging in border-transgressing behavior towards students. And proudly boasted of having 'dated ' (notch-notch, wink-wink) students.

Still, there may be asshats out there who are not convinced by the evidence. To shut up the doubters once and for all, I decided to write this post. While maths is not my forte, I have learned enough about Bayesian inference from – ironically – Richard-fucking-Carrier, to nail the dudebro with his own weapons. So, without ado, let:

H = Carrier is a sexual harasser
C = A woman has filed a complaint about sexual harassment by Richard Carrier.

Then we are interested in the probability P(H|C), in other words, the probability that H is true, given that C occurred.

Bayes's theorem tells us that P(H|C) = P(C|H)P(C) / P(H).


Now, of course, P(C|H) = 1, which is the probability that there would be a complaint if Carrier is a sexual harasser. Similarly, using Carrier's a forteriori reasoning and the Rank-Raglan scale, we may assume that P(C)=1, which is the global probability that a complaint is filed. Finally, P(H) = 1, because Carrier has already confessed that he made an unwanted pass at a student.

So, P(H|C) = 1. Carrier is without a shred of doubt a sexual harasser.

PZ Myers, The Ally Who's Trying Too Hard

Content notice: sexual objectification.

Is there even one cishet white male who is not a scumbag? Is there? I doubt it. srsly. I doubt it very much. Yeah, I can hear you think: "But...but...surely, there are many who are allies, they can't be all bad?" Wrong. Yes, they are all bad. And more and more I've come to the conclusion that it's especially our so-called allies who are bad. They're the worst.

My co-blogger on this network, the esteemed Heina Dadabhoy, who is currently engaged in the writing of the first anti-Islam book that is not islamophobic, and who is bravely battling sizeist abuse and transphobia from the usual suspects, our Heina has just written a post in which she proved that Dan Linford is not safe, especially for femme women and femme AFAB non-binary people.

Who da fuck is Dan Linford? If, like me, you had never heard of the dude before, it will come as a shock to learn that he was one of those predators who pretended to be one of us. A feminist ally. Anyways, since Heina provides all the evidence you need, I will just step over this piece of filth, to draw attention to another one. One who has so far managed to sleaze his way through our circles, in spite of all the tells that showed him for what he was.

Yeah, I'm talking about PZ fucking Myers. PZ Myers, who openly defended Terfia Benson against trans people who were fighting for their right of existence. Myers, who accused said trans people of tribalism, thereby with one stone denying our lived experiences and making it seem as if tribes are just backwards, brown people who can be freely ridiculed.

Like the true predator he is, he pretends that he welcomes the exposure of his fellow predators. So when he read Heina's outing of Dan Lindford as a predator, Myers knew exactly how to react so as to seem on the right side:
I’m horrified, too. Hitting on students? Unforgivable. Trying to manipulate women while claiming to be on their side? Don’t do that.

And thanks for bringing further discredit to my sex.
Don't let him fool you, folks. This is the guy who fantasized about turning his students into mermaids, and about what he would do with them. Is there any significant difference between fantasizing about having a mass orgy with your students and actually hitting on them? Not in my book. Imagine what it must feel like to be a student of his, after you have read his blog post, and then being exposed to his male gaze, while you are supposed to learn something from him. I would be fucking creeped out.

This is also a guy who had a rape accusation on his ass, but then in effect locked his accuser up and went to his superiors to tell them his version of the story first. This is the good ally PZ Myers who claimed to have witnesses to that incident who could exonerate him, while also stating that he had been alone in his lab with the victim. This is fishy, to say the least. Why do we keep giving the guy a pass? He's a creep who needs to be avoided by all femme-identifying people. It's. Time. For. Us. To. Dump. Him. srsly.

While I'm waiting to pick up the spoons that will enable me to write my first real blog post here, I thought it might be cool to posit a thing or two about my commenting rules.

You want to comment here? Wonderful. No, really. But first ask yourself: Why? Do you disagree with something I wrote? Well, tough luck. You don't get to tell me in my own safe space that I am "wrong". If I thought I was wrong, I wouldn't have written what I wrote. Obvious, ain't it? So keep your asshattery to yourself, thank you very much. Just don't fucking come and 'splain to me I am wrong. I will ban your stupid ass so fast that you won't know what hit you.

Also, if you're a cishet white male, and you feel the urge to comment here, please have the decency to come out clean about that up front. Tell us you're a cishet white male before you start 'splainin'. This rule also applies if you fancy yourself an ally. No, make that: especially when you're an ally.

And please, y'all, Don't. Wear. Surly-Ramics. while you comment here. My tolerance for ableism is less than zero. I won't let it creep in in any shape or form. Your lame piece-'o-shit Surly tells me that you're supporting a vile ableist. You're not welcome here. Just. Stay. The. Fuck. Away. OK?

That's about it, I guess.

Oh, yeah, there's something else I wanted to yap about. I would like you to weigh in about the name of this blog. I am not all that happy with the one I'm using right now. You know the feeling, when you think so long and hard about a word that it loses all meaning. So I cannot tell which is better. Trans Position. Trans Location. Trans Lucid. It's all a blur to me right now. Suggestions appreciated.

Sounds like a perfect recipe for an echo-chamber to me. And I might be wrong, but "lame" and "stupid" are considered ableist, no? Do I detect a whiff of hypocrisy?
(Cishet white male here, would rather be found dead than wearing Surly-Ramics.)

Just curious. I've never read anything by them and I didn't even know they were real nicknames. I just thought they were satirical characters you made up for the strips. They made me laugh, so I wondered why you decided to ditch them.

Heh, I made them up from real parts, as it were. I even thought I was exaggerating too much, but then reality proved me wrong.
