"I'm an atheist because I've encountered no evidence to support the existence of gods. How is it? No complaints. Assuming you do not believe in Zeus, Odin, Baal, or any of the countless gods humans have worshiped at one time or another, I suspect you can understand what it is like to go through the day not believing in them. That is what it is like for us to go through the day not believing in your preferred god." - vjack

It seems to me that there are a variety of options available to those of us who are concerned with the presence of misogyny among atheists, skeptics, or any other group. Publicly browbeating high-profile individuals within the group on which one is focusing is certainly one such option. Calling people names when they express disagreement with... - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...
Personally, I am distressed a bit that there’s now a perception of non-atheists that we are sexists and misogynists. Can’t you just hear the theists chuckling right now? After all , we’re the ones that point out the sexism and misogyny in religion. We’re the ones that speak out for equal treatment for all. - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...

I hate when this happens o.e I love the extra followers xD don’t get me wrong, I just hate when I can’t tell where they came from - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...

Colleges should stick to academics and stop their infantilizing supervision of students’ dating lives, an authoritarian intrusion that borders on violation of civil liberties. Real crimes should be reported to the police, not to haphazard and ill-trained campus grievance committees. - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...

Pressuring High-Profile Atheists to Address Misogyny
It is no secret that liberals are often happy to point out the moral and intellectual failures of Christianity while remaining suspiciously silent on the moral and intellectual failures of Islam. - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...
Atheist Revolution : Liberals Giving Islam a Pass - http://www.atheistrev.com/2014...

"I think he got this right. I don't watch him regularly because I'm unwilling to pay for HBO, so I don't know what his overall track record looks like." - vjack
Thus, there are genuine reasons for some people who are not racists, cultural supremacists, or anything of the sort, to criticize Islam, or certain forms and manifestations of Islam, or to express hostility towards it. These relate to disapproval of various doctrines, canons of conduct, associated cultural practices, and so on, to the power... - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...
Atheist Revolution : Biblical Immorality - http://www.atheistrev.com/2014...
"Good points. The thing about an all-powerful being needing worship was a sticking point for me too. That is such a human attribute, and it made it quite clear that this god concept was a human invention." - vjack
Prior to 1954, “under god” was not part of the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance. The Christian right would prefer that you were unaware of this. - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...

That seems like a reasonable policy. Employees using social media accounts identifying themselves as representatives of an organization can reasonably be assumed to represent the organization. It is tough to imagine that the Center for Inquiry, or any other freethought organization, would want one of their employees publicly calling for bans against speakers with whom they would like to work using social media accounts that identify them as high-level employees of the organization. It would seem that someone who continued to do this after being reprimanded might be in danger of losing his or her position.
Here’s the sad reality: there’s a toxic atmosphere in what passes for the atheist “community” that makes any reference, however brief, however off-the-cuff, to issues relating to sex/gender the subject of intense scrutiny and often the most uncharitable interpretation possible. - http://revolutionaryatheist.tumblr.com/post...
Atheist Revolution : Outrage Culture: Effects - http://www.atheistrev.com/2014...
"I'm not in favor of name-calling. I'm also not in favor of public shaming, organized shunning, and call-out culture (much of which is name-calling). I haven't seen Dawkins doing what you are accusing him of doing, so I'm not sure what I can say about that. I did see the thing with Harris, and it strikes me as absurd to expect him to publicly condemn every unpleasant statement made by his fans. I'm sorry to hear that you discarded your grandfather because you did not like some of what he had to say. I made a similar mistake years ago, and I have regretted it for a very long time. He's long dead, and I gave up the opportunity to get to know him. I wish I had a do-over on that." - vjack
