I cannot even fathom how someone could be so stupid as to believe this

"They're acknowledging that people who use the label "free thinker" are non-theists. In their twisted reality, that makes them agents of the devil. They are also being honest, because they're admitting that religion does…"

"Of course you meant SOME women do that, so do some men. The problem is that a particular gender political perspective promotes that error. There are differences in male and female sexuality. I don't expect women to hit on men. They don't…"

"That's what women DO.  They implicitly make you responsible for their own subjective emotional reactions.  And if you don't understand that they say 'You just don't get it'.     Maybe what THEY don't…"

"I think we can be sensitive to their feelings, to the extent possible. I think it is good to be reminded that women often feel uncomfortable when it on. I don't like making people uncomfortable. To me the problem is that such complaints…"

""women often don't like to be hit on at conferences."   So what?  I don't like having such a strong sex drive nor do I like when females may turn me down.  "

Yet Another Commentary on Elevatorgate

A minor exchange in an elevator is causing quite a fiasco in the skeptic/atheist community. It is very confusing and distressing, but we can learn from this.  First, let me emphasize that Rebecca Watson was doing a service by reminding people that women often don't like to be hit on at conferences. It deserves to be repeated. So guys, be really sure she's interested before you proposition a woman. Fair enough. As humanists we strive to cause as little discomfort in others as possible. It is…See More

"I'm not failing to see anything. I made no statements about people labeling other people, or the negative effects of stereotyping. My comments were about how the term is often used just to say that you disagree with a generalization made by…"

Gold Guy commented on robert mcbean's blog post '"If God didn't exist, Atheists wouldn't exist."'
"The most generous reading I can give to that saying is that it is confounding the belief in something with the subject of belief. In the sense that it is true that if there were no concept of god, there would be no atheists. OTOH, even that would…"
