I’m sorry, this is a short rant, but damn it, I’m sick and goddamn tired of watching both sides in this idiotic Atheism+ debacle act like a bunch of 5-year olds throwing tantrums. You people pretend to be reasonably mature, intelligent, rational adults, but damn it, if some of you just don’t act like that. They act like two warring camps of chimps flinging poo at each other. Now maybe this has been going on for a long, long, long time, in fact, I’m sure it has, but now that I’ve rejoined the wonderful world of Twitter, I get this nonsense thrown at me 24/7.
Just in recent news, the feminist Atheism+ assholes started a petition to get Justin Vacula thrown out of his unpaid co-director position with the SCA. In so doing, they demonstrably lied through their teeth, every single fact they used that supposedly proved he was unqualified were out-and-out falsehoods. People did the research and proved they were blatantly wrong and instead of admitting, mea culpa, let’s fix this, they banned the guy who proved them wrong. This is the maturity level of many of the people in leadership roles with Atheism+.
But hey, not to be outdone, you get people on the other side starting a petition to get Stephanie Zvan ousted from her position with Atheist Voices of Minnesota. This isn’t the first time someone has petitioned to get an individual removed from a project, last time was Rebecca Watson as a contributor on a podcast. Now, it’s Zvan as a contributor to a book. A CHARITY BOOK for crying out loud! Are you people out of your fucking minds?!?!?!
I’m going to explain this to you very slowly, and with little words so you mental midgets can get it through your tiny, pea brains. If you don’t like someone and they’re on a podcast, don’t listen to the podcast. If you don’t like someone and they’re in a book, don’t buy the book. If you don’t like someone and they’re in a leadership role with an organization, don’t join that organization. But for heaven’s fucking sake, all of you, GROW THE FUCK UP!
That is all.
