After my post on elevatorgate, I watched as the atheist community–if you can call it that–imploded. I should have realized it was coming. The only thing atheists share with each other is a position on a single point. We don’t believe in god. That’s it. Every other belief is pretty much up for grabs. Unsurprisingly, it turns out atheists are jealous and proud of it; petty, unjust, unforgiving control freaks; vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleansers; misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bullies…to quote another somewhat misogynistic atheist bully.
The biggest offenders are batshit men’s rights activists and, to a lesser extent, their batshit counterparts, militant feminists. As a woman subscribing to mostly men’s YouTube channels, I saw more of the former than the latter. Yes, I find both extremes disgusting, but I observed much more craziness from the men than I did from the women; therefore, this post will focus on the craziness of men’s rights activists who happen to be atheists. This is similar to my past decision to focus on Christianity because I live in a nation where Christianity is the number one religion. This nation also discriminates against women far more often than it discriminates against men. There are some exceptions (male circumcision and custody rights come to mind), but for the most part, men are in a position of power in this country. This makes the over-the-top misogyny in the atheist “community” even more heinous in my eyes.
I’ve seen men wonder why they don’t see more lady atheists. Well, as a lady atheist, I don’t particularly want to hang around with the likes of The Amazing Atheist and others who have completely lost all sense of common decency. At one point, I didn’t even want to hang around with myself because I had been blind enough to subscribe to said nutjobs.
Here are some lovely quotes from a Reddit thread penned by T.J. Kincaid, the self-styled “amazing” atheist. He was talking to someone who self-identified as a rape victim:
Yeah. Well, you deserved it. So, fuck you. I hope it happens again soon. I’m tired of being treated like shit by you mean little cunts and then you using your rape as an excuse. Fuck you. I think we should give the guy who raped you a medal. I hope you fucking drown in rape semen, you ugly, mean-spirited cow. Actually, I don’t believe you were ever raped! What man would be tasteless enough to stick his dick into a human cesspool like you? Nice gif of a turd going into my mouth. Is that kind of like the way that rapists dick went in your pussy? Or did he use your asshole? Or was it both? Maybe you should think about it really hard for the next few hours. Relive it as much as possible. You know? Try to recall: was it my pussy or my ass?
Nice, eh? Did you notice the projection? I don’t think I’ve ever encountered anyone more mean-spirited than T.J. Kincaid and his flock of sycophants.
By the time I found this little gem, I’d already unsubscribed from The Amazing Atheist. His views are so incredibly vile I also unsubscribed from everyone who was still subscribed to him and noticed in hindsight that many of them tended to rely on personal attacks rather than reason to address the problem of religion. What a blind fool I was.
Disgusted by the infighting that ensued, I unsubscribed from every YouTube atheist except for mister deity, who appears to be a kind, well-balanced individual. Granted, there are a lot of other decent YouTube atheists, but at that point I was finished with the atheist movement. As with most other causes, it was co-opted by a bunch of shrill extremists and I no longer wanted anything to do with the lot of them. I still don’t.
So, what the fuck do I do now?
