It has been a few weeks since a flurry of posts both here and on external blogs about the fact that there is some kind of impenetrable atheist white boys' club; why non-white boys are pissed off; how desperately things have got to change; but unfortunately, very little else. [1
A lot of further waffle was made via comments, but (apart from a suggestion to throw money
at apparently under-educated and superstitious women, because everyone knows that white guys just swim in it) not a single realistic idea was made to address the basic problem - what exactly are we supposed to do if there are no non-white males willing to step up and be heard ?
It was all an anti-climactic fizzle, with many of us, being non-psychic, still scratching our heads at precisely what it was that we were expected to do. All of the encouragement, "acceptance", diversity policy, blah blah blah in the world isn't going to create something out of nothing. If no one wants to come in and bat nothing is going to change
To which I propose a novel solution.
Let us, as the godless, be fully supportive of this noble cause and get right behind it proactively. Let's start a charity drive - let's get the cash together, up front, and pay for Christopher Hitchens to get a sex change. It will be like the snowflake that starts the avalanche. With Christopher Hitchens in a nice power suit
(I'm thinking a classic Coco Chanel black-n-pink number
), triple D boobies (because you know
he wouldn't settle for less) and a microphone at any secular conference, things will
change. Let's get Christine fully in touch with her known femininity
, to boldly lead us into the new, all-inclusive atheist dawn.
