I read Skepchick every day, and I have a pretty broad and bawdy sense of humor, but even I know that it's not really appropriate for more tender ears (well, eyes). So whaddya do?

You start Teen Skepchick. Well, if you're Rebecca Watson, founder of Skepchick, that is.

Branching off of Skepchick, the teen version will be adapted for a younger girl audience (12 and up). The writers will talk about things that interest and concern them, and girls can leave comments there as well. As you might expect, it'll be more heavily moderated than its big sister site, but that's fine with me. We need to get more girls interested in thinking critically, and this is a great way to do it.

Rebecca already got BABloggee Splendid Elles to sign up and blog for her, which is great. She's already proven herself to be a very capable young woman. I'm no psychic -- no one is -- but I see good things ahead for this new effort.
