Militant Atheist Skeptics Are As Bad As Fundies

If anyone wonders why my activism when it comes to dealing with anti-gay religious right bullies very specifically attacks ONLY the bullies themselves and their misrepresentation of their faith, rather than the faith itself or it's followers as a whole, it's because I acknowledge a simple universal truth; I cannot prove my faith is true anymore than I can prove definitively theirs is not, just as a Christian cannot prove definitively THEIR faith is true and MINE is not. No one can prove either one either way. I CAN prove, by simply reading the Bible, when a bigot is intentionally abusing his or her faith to justify hatred falsely, but I cannot prove or disprove that the Christian God exists, nor my own Goddesses. Christians believe in Christ, I believe in Hedon and her daughters.

Why am I bringing this up? Because of the one belief I WILL openly attack; Aggressive Atheism.

Not the average Atheist who simply doesn't believe in Gods or the supernatural and spiritual but respects others' rights to believe otherwise. I mean the truly aggressive douchebag skeptics. The ones who actively campaign to scold, tease, mock, attack and belittle those who believe in ANYTHING that isn't tangible. The ones who are every bit the equal of the worst fundamentalist Christians and Muslims. The ones who think ONLY what THEY believe (or disbelieve) is the absolute truth and everyone else needs to fucking fall in line buster!

As my dear friend Katie can attest, there most certainly ARE Christians who are perfectly content to believe in Christ AND let me believe in Hedon. She's a leader in her church. I believe she's ordained in fact. But she has never ONCE dismissed MY beliefs, or told me I'm wrong or sinful to not share HERS. Nor have I ever felt any need to criticize hers. She does me no harm, I shall do her none in kind. Simply mutual courtesy. I have NO problem with people like HER.

Conversely I also know Atheists who are like her. They believe there are NO Gods, no reincarnation, nothing of the kind, but they are perfectly content to let those who DO believe, well, believe.

I have no issue with THEM either.

I have issue with bullies.

On the side of belief, I hate Christian or Muslim bullies who try to shove their beliefs down everyone else's throat, who demand EVERYONE believe as they do, and ONLY as they do.

On the side of DISbelief, I hate the militant aggressive Atheists, who think NO ONE anywhere should believe in ANYTHING intangible. No God, no Goddess, no spirits, no NOTHING. The aggressive skeptics who feel a need to inject themselves into every conversation and talk down to believers like we're idiot children.

I don't give a flying fuck what anyone else believes, as long as they a) keep it mostly to themselves, and don't try to force it on me, and b) respect MY right to believe different.

I don't shove my faith down anyone's throat. That's actually one of my faith's few rules; Don't force it on others. I only talk about it if asked.

But I WILL not tolerate another human being, whatever THEIR beliefs or lack thereof, talking down to me like I'm an idiot for believing differently, and trying to force me to believe like them. If I believe I have lived past lives and that Earth has a soul and her children were Goddesses co-opted by other ancient religions how does that hurt you? I'm doing no harm, I'm minding my own business, and I'm not telling YOUR children what a flake YOU are because you don't believe in MY faith, so why the hell is it okay for YOU to do it to me?

I am NOT a flake or a kook or an idiot or a sinner or a blasphemer because my faith is not yours, OR for having a faith at all when you may not.

Seriously, fuck militant skeptics. They're as big a pain in the ass as fundies. Science does NOT mean "If we haven't conclusively proven it yet it's bullshit", nor does it mean "Well, we can't 100% conclusively DISPROVE this thing, so we'll round off and chalk it up as bullshit" either. Science means exploring the unknown, NOT dismissing it.


RadFem Training Hive Goes Down?

The Vancouver Rape Relief website is gone.

Vancouver Rape Relief is a supposed Rape Cris & Counseling service, but they have a LONG and documented history of abusive treatment towards ANY woman who doesn't fit what they define as a proper woman.

When I was going to WAVAW for counseling they had THREE FULL BINDERS of NOTHING but womens' complaints about being treated like shit at VRR.

- Punk rock girls who were slut-shamed
- Fat women accused of attention seeking
- Party girls told to dress like ladies
- Trans women outright told to get the fuck out.
- Ftms and butch lesbians told to come back when they learn how to be women.

I once called VRR for crisis counseling, before I knew their rep. The woman I was talking to openly laughed at me, told me to clear the line for "real" victims, and hung up on me.

I would normally never gloat at the failing of a rape shelter crisis agency, but they have NEVER been that. They were a professional RadFem breeding ground and brainwashing centre.

If this means they've finally been shut down? HAPPY PENNY.


The "Funny" Thing About RadFems

Funny thing about the RadScum, (funny migraine, not funny ha-ha), that perpetuate this bullshit idea that only "womyn born womyn count as women and trans women are just deluded mutilated frauds trying to violate womens' spaces?

They're NOT feminists, they're TERRORISTS. By the very definition of the word. They cause chaos and spread fear, and openly advocate and enable murder to further their cause. I've seen several RadScum not only openly say all trans women should be murdered, but most cis men, and even culling male children.

REAL feminism is about achieving true equality for ALL the sexes and genders.

RadScum "feminism" is about genocide and exclusion. And they halve the balls to say Trans women make them feel unsafe? The worst I've EVER seen a trans woman do to a radscum was angrily say something like "Please go die in a fire", AFTER being shat on and pushed and goaded beyond belief, whereas RadScum have actively sought and concretely worked to get Trans Women exposed to very real risk of beatings or even being murdered.

Bug Brennan for example, pretty much calls all men and all trans people rapists, but look at her personality. She's MASSIVELY overbearing, tries to dominate everything and everyone she encouters, trans AND cis, pushy, demanding, no empathy or respect for others' feelings.

I would bet CASH MONEY there are women out there who have been raped BY Bug. She shows all the hallmarks of an abuser.

RadScum in general show all the hallmarks of classic bigotry;

- Blind vehement and blatant hatred for an oppressed group, repeated denial of that hatred in spite how how blatantly obvious their own words make it ,
(Examples; referring to trans women as deluded mutilated men, clearly a hateful statement, which they will often, when directly confronted about it, backpedal by insisting they really care about the poor deluded men and just want to help them stop being so deluded and learn to be happy as men).

- Always quick to play the victim while accusing the real victims of being the real aggressors,
(Accusing trans women of forcing their way into women's spaces, wanting to rape cis women, us commandeering every conversation instead of them, and swearing up and down they're afraid we'll hurt them).

- A clearly deluded belief that they speak for everyone, that almost everyone believes exactly as they do, and those who don't are either just lying to themselves or "too afraid to speak up".
(Example; Claiming that all people are secretly disgusted by trans women, and those who support us only do so out of misguided pity, not any genuine acceptance, and one particular RadScum who inexplicably claimed that most women hate penetration and those who say they do are just not being honest with themselves).

- And finally, mistaking the right to free speech such as the right to SAY "I hate trans women and I think they're gross", with the right to force their beliefs into law.
(Example; Bug Brennan ceaselessly and tirelessly working to oppose implentation of ANY law that is supportive and/or protective of trans people, and actively campaigning to make even just BEING trans illegal).

Take those last four signs of bigotry I just detailed, and apply them to any of the anti-gay hate groups, such as NOM or the AFA. I garauntee you will easily find multiple examples of all of those Bigot Hallmarks. And RadScum display each and every one.

But while Anti-GAY hatemongers like Tony Perkins or Brian Brown are very careful to never openly directly say "Kill all the fags", RadScum have NO compunctions whatsoever about openly and frequently condoning and even actively wanting the deaths of trans women.

RadScum, Radical Feminists, are the terrorists in our midst. And they don't even TRY to hide it.
