RE: Why there aren't more female atheists...
This whole thread..... Is very special.

There are atheist women everywhere. The three big religions tend to be antiwoman. Once they realize that they tend to become atheists/feminists.

Which is fine to me as long as their feminism stays towards the more moderate humanistic side.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

Anyone go to some of the atheist Meetup groups? There are quite a few here in Oregon.

She nailed it. This what I feel about feminism and probably what many other women feel about it too.

I see far more women falling prey to new age 'woo' then their male counterparts. I think women hold a higher reverence for the mystic and sacred, I think they consider the emotional aspect of life far more than men. *This is based solely on observation and maybe I'm ignorant to think so, so feel free to burry me in contrary data if I am wrong.
This is probably correct. Also, the article is ridiculous.

On a related note, have you noticed that "women's magazines" often have horoscopes and ads for psychics? "Men's magazines" seem to never have that.

Conspiracy against women? Alternet will likely say so.Rolleyes

Another example that comes to mind is the media around "THE SECRET" shows that women take that bullshit far more seriously then men.

It's obvious that women find spiritualism/religion/self-help/woo more appealing then men do, but many non-theists seem to feel bad about about observing this.

Oh, I will have to disagree. I see men into horoscopes and psychics and the difference they have with other men who are not interested is the same some women have with men in general: they constantly worry whether they will have a family, whether that guy/girl will take them seriously, whether their relationship will last, whether their children will be healthy etc.

Women like to feel "safe" with their choices and have much more stress with everyday things than men. In my experience, I don't see women being more into mysticism than men. Psychics and horoscopes are not purely spiritualism. Their main aspect of interest is their alleged ability to explain things and offer a sense of safety.
