RE: Why there aren't more female atheists...
Hmmn... A thread where we generalize about women... Bechased

Big Grin

Yeah, there's a bunch of sexist bullshit, there's the generalization that women avoid confrontation, and then science. Sure, Dom, ya don't hafta "be into science" to be an atheist, but if one is into science, seems to generally follow that one will be less into supernatural thinking.

But speaking of science, there is no science here. This yammering on the Internet, it's still new, it's still a kinda geeky, kinda guy thing. So...

What it comes down to, is RTS trying to stir up shit. Tongue

Someone more interested in discussions of religion and atheism, though, is almost obligated to delve rather deeply, given how often bad science is brought up by the other side.


In some respects I think it's rather microcosmic for online communities and the internet in general (and the reasons for that involve a lot of gender theory sociology). But, while I approve of inventively crude language, for the most part we don't see too much back-and-forth slur swapping, do we?

I don't think the T&A threads are particularly useful to have around. Anyone reading one already has an internet connection, rather obviating the need to find anything along those lines here of all places...

What's a T&A thread?

I think it's tits and ass. Like the Rolling Stones song Little T&A?

It's pretty much a boy's club here, lots of name calling and 4 letter words and attacking each other and threads about cameltoes and staring at breasts and and, and, and. It ain't no place for a lady!

Are you saying ladies can't be into that sort of thing? Drinking Beverage

I agree with cljr's assessment of 'tits & ass' threads. Unless you are 15 they are pretty pointless.

And you have no problem feeding it, huh, Cantor? Tongue

"Kinda a guy thing." Chicks can be geeky, too.

I think unless there is hard evidence where we can get everyone who is an athiest to answer all the questions about background information, we will never be able to TRULY say there aren't more women (or even equal parts) that are atheists than men. I know we see things with our own eyes and we can make assumptions, but isn't that part of science? (Since it keeps being brought up...) We make a hypothesis and test it and retest it and find out if it's true?

RE: Why there aren't more female atheists...
Overall, in my personal experience, I think that's bullshit. I think there are plenty female atheists. Hell, just look at the number of them on here. Drinking Beverage

Actually, it is funny you should mention that. I did get a girlfriend today. The boob thread is gonna be empty now, but abandoning my duties is well worth it. Drinking Beverage
