If that is how Scientific American Blogs runs, of course, none of this random assortment of my recent posts should have been allowed either:

I almost never write about discovering science, and in fact write frequently about oppression and privilege. But when a black woman writes about an oppressive experience, it is grounds for removal. Folks, this is Ally Work 101: it doesn't matter your intent, what matters is the impact. Silencing a black woman who just got called an "urban whore" is sexist, racist, silencing behavior. It is wrong, and it is shameful.

(See Dr. Isis for the back story on this.)
