Yes, John, and it's your choice to ignore every question I have asked.

Matt, I did not say you used "Fembot and Twat."

as for "factual" what is the point of phrases like "back the fuck off"? If that's how you like to express yourself, whatever, but using phrases like that on a forum like A/N makes me think you are quick to anger and indignation for no apparent reason. Just so you're aware - I'm not saying you should change how you express yourself, simply explaining how you come across to me.

Wow! If gender were actually irrelevant this incident wouldn't have spawned such controversy.

p.s.

AND ANOTHER THING...........

i never said ther is no place for anyone in atheism for shy little anybodys.

 

cheers.

not emotional just factual. its all about freedom and the maturity to act in a free sociaty and still alow freedoms for everyone.

"So there is no place in Atheism for "shy little girls"? How about shy little boys?"

its about personal responsibility and personal confidence. gender is irrelevant.

I would tell them the same thing.

BTW.....

I am NOT the one saying "fembot" and Twat" o.k.? I think that the misrepresentation/mispronunciations of someone's name just to make points is not making points in an argument, it is childish and petty. so back the fuck off on that one.

 

"Can you (Jonh and Matt) not see that you are doing precisely the same thing that she did?

Telling someone else how to behave in a given situation?"

 

not like her. she espouses that others change for her. I espouse taking charge of your own life and dont let others dictate how you feel. its not up to them.

(as noted in my previous statements).

 

you are more than welcome back any time.

heat is sometimes good. eh?

and sometimes all ya wana do is come in and kick a beehive.

we are all emotional beings....its o.k.....   ;)

as long as we dont start throwing small animals at each other I think we will be o.k.

;)

cheers&aloha

Personally I want Atheism to spread - everywhere - I want more little girls and boys growing up knowing that hell and heaven are both fictions invented to control them.

Say fembot and twat all you like you are simply proving the point that sexism is a problem, sexism like religion is part of our shared social inheritance. Being an atheist - secularist etc. does not make you immune. That is a valid point.

Can you (Jonh and Matt) not see that you are doing precisely the same thing that she did?

Telling someone else how to behave in a given situation?

That was my point.

I had never visited her site before today but thanks to your obvious ire I thought I would - very interesting - I will likely visit again.  

As for kicking a bee hive Matt, I was attempting to engage in a discussion, I had no idea that you'd get all emotional.

I like the animated one because its a real feminist confronting our "too sensitive to live in the real world" feminist.

Thanks for the link John, it was awesome.

though a link to her being the speech police would have better supported your point,

do you have a link like that? I am actually curious.

 

Comment by matt warren on July 29, 2011 at 1:37pm

wow.....kicked a good bee hive here.

have fun.

Comment by Ally on July 29, 2011 at 12:42pm

As to the mention of "Assrape" - I was trying to point out that as someone who gets numerous messages suggesting she get raped (as a corrective measure for whatever...) that was likely an element of her state of mind at the time.

If she were a "Shy little girl" she would not be speaking publically.

 Fembot nitwit- wow...

People complain that there are not enough women involved in Atheist events and she gets completely slammed for bringing up a valid point as to one reason that could be so...

Saying "just tell him to fuck off" or  "kick him in the nuts" is basically saying her response was inadequate, Suggesting elevator dude not proposition someone in an elevator - after all those other factors Donegal mentioned - is encouraging him to police Hiw OWN behaviour - something Women have been told forever. That is the sticking point of this "debate." 

"Why the fuck should I police my own behaviour?"

"Why the fuck shouldn't you."

""get used to it or get out!""
