Several years ago I used to participate in a few forums by atheists and allegedly for atheists. I don’t do that anymore. In fact, I kind of dislike them now and can’t spend more than a few minutes at a time on them.
The rape discussions started by theist men.
How many times do I, a woman and mother to a daughter, have to read a “sincere” post allegedly about objective morality where the curious theist always ask why he should refrain from raping women and girls, the latter of which he routinely disguises as “children”?
I know the majority of atheists are men, but unless you grew on a fucking tree somewhere you have a mother and Mr. Theist wants you to tell him why raping your mother is wrong. Hell, some of you even have daughters. Why in hell do you not consider having someone demand that you explain to him in objective terms (wouldn’t want to be called ‘sensitive’ now, would we?) why he shouldn’t rape her to be deeply disturbing and unacceptable???
And it’s not like these boards allow “sincere” discussions about specific crimes against other marginalized groups. I’ve tried posting such questions on the boards that allow discussions about the rape of women and girls. Not a one has went through unless you count being banned without comment as getting through.
So, what the fuck gives? Why is it okay to have “sincere” moral discussions about the rape of women and girls, but the height of impropriety to talk about committing violent crimes against non-women (aka: men)?
It makes me just want to start punching shit.
