Is `Feminism` Poisoning Atheism?

From Youtube: Equality is great, but that"s not what this is about. Its about a small bunch of whiners.

The `feminists` were ridiculous, but so was Thunderfoot`s presentation. It`s going to take more than a few outrageous soundbites to convince me that the `atheist cause` is under siege. I can`t even make sense of what that might mean, anyhow. It should interest atheists more to investigate if there exists any threat against female participants at conferences and move forward from there, instead of sounding rally calls to alienate the noisy feminists ones. Thunderfoot, as far as I can tell right now, is employing the same silencing tactics he attributes to the radical `skepchicks` and creationists.

Actually, liberalism has poisoned feminism, atheism, agnosticism, antidisestablishmentarianism, and everything else it has ever touched.

This guy is a drat nut. No woman is claiming that atheists are rife with misogynists. They`re saying that they experience sexism. And most acknowledge that it`s from a nasty, vocal, but small minority. This idiot wants to undermine those claims when, in fact, it`s just common sense. There are always going to be trolls. If you pretend they don`t exist and poo-poo legitimate complaints, you`re just contributing to the problem. This problem does exist, but dealing with it shouldn`t be any different than dealing with it in society at large. The majority of us who aren`t drat nut sexist bigots ought to shut down the small handful of idiots who are, not protect them by pretending it`s the women who have the issue. They wouldn`t have said a word had the problem not been so ridiculous that it was beyond ignoring.

Feminism poisons everything it touches.

It`s not about "life" "equality" or "justice" it`s about death, special rights and totalitarianism.

You disagree with feminism? Prison, torture and death for you! Not neccessarily in that order, either.

8bit, I know a guy from the forces...a big guy, who`s ex wife used to kick the crap out of him when she`d had a drink - she knew he wasn`t going to turn round and do the same back and relied on that.

He`s done 4 or 5 tours in afghan and iraq and is no pussy by any definition I`d subscribe to.

When I was about 18 I got stabbed off a pissed up woman in a bar...it wasn`t serious, it was just a screwdriver in my leg - and that was for intervening in a row and telling her boyfriend not to push her around.

There a lot of violent people around....quite a few of them are female whether we like it or not. Go to most inner cities in the UK and see how many drunk girls are kicking off on people every weekend.

Women are equal.
But, if a man hits a woman he`s a pussy and if a man gets hit by a woman he`s a pussy.

I`m all for equality for everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender, skin colour, race or anything else. I honestly don`t understand why we still have this problem

Also, serious question:
Someone explain the `Fake Jewellery` thing to me...what?
Another point that confuses me is the atheist part. Athiests DO NOT have a religion so would therefore have no business by saying "A woman can do this, or a woman can`t do that" because they have no scripture to follow. As far as I know, athiests don`t care what any does because there are no books saying treat a woman like this or hate on gays.

Thunderf00t is hardly a prick by the way, he`s smarter than most of your gremlins on here.

` `yeah if a woman hits you first, hit her back like you`d do with a guy...then we`re all nice and equal.`

Seriously, dude. Look at the numbers, that whole battered man thing is pathetic when you look at the numbers. How many men die at the hands of their partners?

And here it comes. Poor male me, so badly done by. How dare women claim anything when I paid for dinner and didn`t get laid. So unfair.

tbh I can`t stand most of the feminists I`ve met... most of them couldn`t give a poo about equality, they didn`t want an even playing field they wanted one in their favour.

males have a tough time in things like family courts here in the UK - they get nothing like equality when it comes to child access after a divorce.... you don`t see any of these women banging on about eqality then - or any of them saying `yeah if a woman hits you first, hit her back like you`d do with a guy...then we`re all nice and equal.`

I think the word you are looking for is `mangina`. It`s a neo-logism among the MRA community for men who think women have a right to get pissed off. Goes well with feminazi. Just thought I`d add that to your vocabulary.

I think you just made it under the line for most vacuous comment of 2012. There are a few hours to go, but that`s a hard one to beat.

What these ladies want to do is to sit around and discuss ideas without being hit on, called bitches, c**ts and dykes or being patted on the head and told to `get over it`.

On-line misogyny and bullying is a real issue and it only took one incident for it to flare up in a supposedly rational and progressive movement. Entitledment was being questioned, at best the response from the entitled was hey, it`s not a problem unless you point it out, followed by kitchen/sammich comments which are always clever and funny.

`This is ,for lack of a better word, Misandry...`

For lack of a better word? I`m guessing it`s a word you use a lot.

Also, I`m all for woman`s rights. They should be equal. However, some of these woman (the radical ones) don`t seem to know what they are doing and give the whole movement a bad name.

If Radical feminism is poisoning Atheism, I really could care less. Because it`s not a "belief system", you are simply attacking the fact that I don`t believe something. Big deal. What`s next? Attack the fact that I don`t believe in unicorns? Atheism is not a belief system but a disbelief in Religion/God. There is zero proof of a God, therefore, I don`t believe in him. Same way I don`t believe in Zeus. It is not a religion. We do not have a set belief system, except that we don`t believe in Religion/God. You can`t poison that.

What these ladies want to do is to sit around and discuss their own ideas with people who will not disagree with them, or with people who have a different viewpoint.
It sort of reminds me of The Peoples Front of Judea, when they were sitting around trying to create a manifesto to present to the people to represent their beliefs.
This is ,for lack of a better word, Misandry at its finest and stupidity at its deepest level ...now shut the hell up and get back in the kitchen and make me a sammich !!!!!

That whole elevatorgate thing was wierd. Watson originally made a fairly mild point that being hit on by a stranger at 4 a.m. in an elevator made her uncomfortable and so, guys, please don`t do that. Then boom. Things got ugly really quickly. Guys like Spermninja above talking about feminazis and how women should just get over it were the mildest. There were rape threats, vicious harrassment and mocking comments about any women who objected being too ugly to rape. Nasty. Old friendships were broken and the whole thing escalated.

IMO, if several women say that they feel uncomfortable with how they are treated at conferences which are 80% male then `Get over it.` is not the right response.

hmm, he has got a point though, people seem to be living with double standards in that video.

and yeah, the freedom of free speach ends where you are out to offend, but at the same time, taking offence is a choice too. So if one side agrees not to try to offend and the other side agrees not to take offence right away but first explain why they find something offensive, seems to me you can have people keep an open mind towards eachother, rather then telling others how to act ,think and speek.
But then, thats what happens when individuals group up. its almost as if they want a church of atheism.

What a f-king wad of bullpoo, There`s some sound bites from some WAY overboard feminazis, and then some edited, WAY out of context soundbites from this atheist movement leader. I consider everything that the bearded guy said to be lighthearted and tongue in cheek. You can re-edit and re-spin anything that ANYONE says to sound bad. Seriously, everyone, (feminists especially) Get over yourselves and look at the big picture.
