Richard Dawkins stripped of ’humanist of the year’ title over trans comments

Richard Dawkins has been stripped of the ’Humanist of the Year’ award by the American Humanist Association, 25 years after he received the honor. The AHA slammed Dawkins, an academic and author, for ’demeaning marginalized groups’ using ’the guise of scientific discourse’. Dawkins had been honored in 1996 for his ’significant contributions’ in communicating scientific concepts to the public.

A) I doubt he cares. B) This very petty C) Does this mean Oscars, Golden Globes and other awards can be taken away if we don't like some people. This isn't going to end in a very silly purity spiral at all is it? Oh no.

This is stupid. Even if he made a bad comment one should not be able to retroactively retract anything. Further, all the good things he fights for - some bad comment = a very good guy.

Yeah, you can't be a humanist if you don't support humans.
