I want misogyny. I want sexism. I want it now!
Every day, I see tweets and blog posts lamenting all the misogynists and sexists that are keeping the women in the secular movement back. Where are they? Seriously.
I challenge anyone to post outright proof of misogyny or sexism in the atheist/secular community. Post it anywhere you want, here, your blog, link to it on Twitter. Reply anywhere.
And if you attempt this, bear in mind, you have to prove the person or persons involved are actually a part of our community. Random anonymous trolls don’t count. (You’re the idiot that fell for that shit, you can damn well clean it up without dragging the rest of us in with you.)
Name and shame is the name of the game. You want help with this alledged rampant problem? Show the proof it exists and it will get done. But if you’re going to call everyone that disagrees or questions you misogynists and sexists, you will never be without them. Keep that last sentence in mind as well while you compile you’re list of bad men (or women).
This bullshit has gone on far longer than it should have. If there really is a problem and you can point to any particular person or persons and prove their intent, I, and I’m sure many of my friends, will support you publicly. If you can’t or won’t, I see no reason why anyone in the community needs to pay any further attention to your wolf-cries.
