RE: Is atheism dominated by males?
I think it depends on culture and geography.

Many cultures it can be deadly for a woman (and men) to declare atheisim-- but since females are considered property and not a human, the risk for injury increases.

In the US, it varies greatly by location. Northern & Western states have higher rates than those in the south and mid west, generally speaking. So maybe you aren't bumping into many because of where you happen to live?

Also, we just got the right to VOTE in 1920, the right to marry a person of color in the 1960's, been fighting for equal pay in the workplace, sexual harassment issues, and the right to choose in a pregnancy since then….excuse us---.we've been a bit busy. Tongue

Japan & China are atheist countries for the most part- so there are many female atheists there.

Here's a link to some statistics by country.

-non theist
-secular
-agnostic
-non religious
-humanist
-skeptic
-free thinker
-unaffiliated


you get the idea….many people avoid the term "atheist" because of stigma's associated with it.

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


Hummm. Do recall where you read this?

Shakespeare Insult 13 – Henry IV Part 1
“That trunk of humours, that bolting-hutch of beastliness, that swollen parcel of dropsies, that huge bombard of sack, that stuffed cloak-bag of guts, that reverend vice, that grey Iniquity, that father ruffian, that vanity in years?”

Interesting stats.
The most atheistic country in Europe is the one in which I live - France.
Another reason to like this country.
Don't know whether there are more male than female atheists but I think it's likely that women are just quieter about it, on the whole.

Very true, I live in a very catholic area and would use "non-religious" to define my beliefs if cornered. Other wise I just avoid the topic.
