Oh, I see what you're doing. He thinks it's misogynistic that you imply woman can't be atheists like he is. This poll is a waste of space either way.

I mean, yeah, it is, but I'm enjoying myself. Also, I wasn't implying women can't be atheists.

Not really, but I have a strong suspicion its subject is.

The question does make me think that Euphoria would be a good name for a women's magazine.

No, but that's how I picture pretty much any Atlas user with a red or maroon or green avatar.

It's from 2013?  That makes it 68 in meme years.

Fat shaming is never a good look either. I mean, is that what American's thought atheists looked like? No wonder they never go to Europe.

This meme is supposed to be about atheists?  How so?  It seems like its just making fun of Incel creeps [who, as a rule, are always misogynistic losers].  Either way, at first I just assumed it was a funny Atlas meme someone made about Snowstalker before he got banned.

At some risk of getting totally offtrack of Nathan's question, the image is unfair to kids who grow up in communities that actually punish people for rejecting the faith of their upbringing.

I knew a lot of teenagers who went through the mid-aughts edgy atheist phase, and nine times out of ten that person had lived through significant mistreatment from their friends and neighbors. It's easy to lose sight of this if you grew up in the kind of place where adults don't start telling you about your prospects for eternal torment in preschool.

Yeah, this is a totally fair criticism,

Fat shaming is never a good look either.

as is this, and I'm happy to accept them. I have a close friend who went through the process Averroës is describing herself. I should have found some other way to respond in the thread in question.

No, it just features an inherently misogynistic subspecies.
