About
Defiant
We are the loyal opposition
Note from the editor

Defiant writes about politics, media, science and sex with, well, defiance. We are big believers in science, reason and the radical power of basic decency. American patriots in a cynical gilded age. Progressives in this strange, new regressive era. Lovers among haters. Optimists despite everything. Join us … and speak truth to power.
