How on earth have you or anyone else been silenced, alienated or ostracised by A+?

Banning is not silencing. It is not alienation. It is not ostracism. It's privacy.

I consistently hear that A+ is just a bunch of fringe-dwelling loonies. If that's the case, how is A+ capable of silencing, alienating or ostracising anyone? It's not. A+ IS the alienated, ostrasied group the larger atheist community has relegated to the fringes of society. A+ is being told to shut up and go away just about everywhere except right here.

A powerless minority is not capable of systemic oppression.

I like the current entry. It's so ridiculous that it works in our favour. I particularly like the links to "mangina" and "pussy beggar" at the end. They deliver a coup de grâce to any lingering belief that the author might not be an embittered misogynist.

The best part is when you read the dude's other definitions. I don't remember specifically what they are, but they're all shit.

Every time I go to vote some more, the increase in upvotes on the nasty definition and downvotes on the good definition is greater than the increase in downvotes on the nasty definition and upvotes on the good definition. This is disheartening.

Not really.

Think of it as 419eater: every second the turds are spending upvoting, they aren't spending somewhere else bothering sane people.

Also, they are probably using an upvote script.

Wow. It might just be a script, but imagining someone putting in that amount of effort over something they hate?

WOW. They really do have absolutely no life.

When they're on their deathbed, what do you think will be running through THEIR minds? Fuck, I'm so glad I'm not wasting my life. Sad that it's other atheists who are showing me the value of the here and now by virtue of their awfulness.

If you're wondering where the opposing votes are coming from, David Futrelle has the answer:

MRA groups are getting into the act. We can't win. No force in the universe is more powerful than the burning resentment of a man who can't see why all women find him repellent.

I was wondering how all of sudden there was a big upsurge in votes the past couple of days.

I feel so supported by my MRA, atheist brethren.

You should be proud. This one's for you. ;)

I don't believe MRAs can actually be atheists because they worship the patriarchy.

In case anyone was wondering, I've stolen this argument from an MRA atheist who originally applied it against feminists. Thanks for the laughs!

My goodness, come on atheists, let's not fuck each other over here.

Aren't atheists supposed to be fighting religious patriarchy, not joining it?

And A+ is being accused of fundamentalism?

Geez. :roll:

Bingo. Why are so many atheists so intent on perpetuating the very thing they claim they're opposing?

Leviticus wrote:27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
27:5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
27:6 And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
27:7 And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

The Quran wrote: Allah chargeth you concerning (the provision for) your children: to the male the equivalent of the portion of two females, and if there be women more than two, then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance, and if there be one (only) then the half. -- 4:11

... unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females. -- 4:176

And call two witness from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not at hand, then a man and two women. -- 2:282


MRAs need to stop being so religious.

Последний тост

Я пью за разоренный дом,
За злую жизнь мою,
За одиночество вдвоем,
И за тебя я пью, -
За ложь меня предавших губ,
За мертвый холод глаз,
За то, что мир жесток и груб,
За то, что Бог не спас.
