WTF stands for … Women Thinking Free. It was an organization born in the Skepchick Crucible, and it did things like the “Hug Me I’m Vaccinated” campaign which really truly probably saved liVes or at least reduced misery. It also spawned (though I’m probably oversimplifying here) the MTM (More than Men) project, which reminds me, it is time to repost my MTM project for you.
Anyway, when WTF started out it was cute. The name, that its. You’d say “WTF” and somebody would say “Huh? What” and then you’d say “Women Thinking Free, what did you think I meant?” and so on. But WTF grew beyond its own clever eponymish name and the value of getting the WTF reaction to WTF has waned relative to the need for a serious organization to be taken seriously. So, as the child growing into adulthood sheds its nickname (and Peanut becomes Pat or Goofyface becomes Chris) WTF shall now be WT inc, or WTI, for Women Thinking, Inc.
I hope they start a blog called “Women Thinking Ink.”
