I'd rather like to read actual reports... but then again, I don't really care nor think this matters...

A) I doubt accurate reports exist.

B) I don't care enough to reach beyond my own personal experience.

That's pretty much what I said lol, "I don't care nor think this matters"

RE: Is atheism dominated by males?
I do remember a finnish study about gender and atheism. Tiina Mahlamäki was the author, but of course, this is from Finland and from written from finnish context. There is list of bibliography at the end of this article. If that helps?

I imagine people like me are already hated enough for being women. I know I don't want to give all these Christian "neighbors" more reason to hate me.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

RE: Is atheism dominated by males?
It sounds like between us we're coming up with a plausible explanation.

Organised religion is patriarchal and tends towards bigotry, including misogyny. If you live in a secular society where the majority of people are not religious, yet alone zealous (e.g. Britain) then there is little chance to even reveal your atheism because the subject never comes up. For example, in America, none of you have to come out as not being communists.

But if you live in a religious society where most people are christian or muslim, then it will also be a society where women have been conditioned to think of their status as second rate and their opinions as not being of value. That conditioning will not only mean that they will be less likely to have the confidence to come out and challenge the status-quo, but will probably be stronger for them than sections of society expected to lead.
