Is atheism dominated by males?
This is inspired by "atheist girlfriend." I got to thinking about the question and I realized that most atheists I've meet are guys. Is this a misconception of mine or are there many more atheist guys than women? If so what would be the explanation for this? And if not, where are they?

I have a hunch that the women just keep it quiet more times than not.

And that possibly men need to identify themselves with a label more than women do.

Well, thats my story and I'm stickin to it. Big Grin

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

Huh, never thought about that. Honestly don't really think it matters, but I do agree most atheists I know are male. Although there still is a decent amount of atheist females (just look at our forum), I just think that males are more open about it while the females more or less just keep their mouths shut and go with the flow.

Just what I've noticed... probably has to do more with social pressures than anything, women are still fighting for equal rights... add atheism to that and they might get stoned...

I really think that atheism is dominated by males. That is because religion uses emotional pressure all the time and women are more vulnerable to it. For instance it is easier to scare women with pascals wager or get em to love a tyrant by telling em how much he loves em even though he is obviously evil.

Hi! Outspoken atheist here. Also a lady.



Nothing further. Smartass

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

I actually know more atheist women than men. O-o
Then again, more of my friends are women anyway so that might explain it. XD

Women have always been more religious than men. If you look into the early history of christianity more women converted than men and women played a big role in the spread. So not real surprised.

Nope.

I read statistics some time ago that say women are more commonly atheists
