- Acephobe: SAYING ASEXUALITY IS A SEXUALITY IS LIKE SAYING ATHEISM IS A RELIGION
- Me: ... You... do know that there are religions without a Deity or multiple Deities... right?
I’m doing it. I’m deleting my Facebook profile. This Friday is Deletion Day. OMG.
Well, after the message I just sent my mom, I’m probably being disowned. Oh well. In vino veritas, right? *downs cab sauv and goes to watch Guardians for the second time*
I could have sworn I saved that post with all those great links covering Racism 101 for clueless white people. I need it because I’m being attacked on FB by my mom for posting the article about Darren Hunt in Saratoga Springs. Grrrrr, but now I can’t find it!

The reality of sexism in freethought is not limited to a few famous leaders; it has implications throughout the small but quickly growing movement. Thanks to the internet, and to popular authors like Dawkins, Hitchens, and Sam Harris, atheism has greater visibility than at any time since the 18th-century Enlightenment. Yet it is now cannibalizing itself. For the past several years, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and online forums have become hostile places for women who identify as feminists or express concern about widely circulated tales of sexism in the movement. Some women say they are now harassed or mocked at conventions, and the online attacks — which include Jew-baiting, threats of anal rape, and other pleasantries — are so vicious that two activists I spoke with have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. One of these women has been bedridden for two years.
