"Atheist," historically, has not been a form of self-entitlement, it has been an insult given to you by others. If you're gonna make a big deal out of strict definition and ignore the historical context, ya ain't doing it. If you call yourself an atheist, you are making a positive claim, besides, it is best to be clear on identifiers. You gonna make a list of all the shit you lack belief in, or are you gonna step up and go, "your god concept sux?"

To proclaim is to reclaim; represent! Shy
