Hackers Take Down Philosophy Grad Student Philippe Lemoine’s Blog…

…after his devastatingly well-argued piece on overrepresentation of women in philosophy.

We ourselves have survived hacking attempts and thrived.  Bring it.

UPDATE: It is now back online.



A former police officer, AR-15 (or “AR”) knows the difference between an assault rifle and home defense rifle. AR now fights with other weapons and demolishes arguments. He agrees that the pen is mightier than the sword, but he isn’t so stupid to bring a pen to a gunfight.

  1. But…but…but…implicit bias, and stereotype threat, and patriarchy.

    I mean, if we don’t rid the world of Christians (or first at least the white men), how will there be justice?

    We need to continue striving for a world where a man with a mustache and penis is recognized as a woman just because he says so; a world where babies are murdered on a whim because no one is able to keep it in his pants; a world where everyone seeks ultimate meaning for their human existence in pleasuring their genitals however they please; a world without rules or reason; a world, in short, that becomes nothing but a playground for overgrown children to do as they will.

    If that doesn’t happen, how will we hide our shame?

  2. It’s an ill wind that blows no man good – if it hadn’t been for the Streisand Effect kicking in due to your reporting of the hacking, I would never have read this very interesting blog post from Mr. Lemoine.
