I'm glad you're fighting for animal rights but I hope you realize that some people are never going to agree with you. They just are not coming from a humane place and really don't care to be. Sometimes it is best to finally say that everybody is entitled to his or her opinion and enough has been said about it.
There's a 6 member Vegan Atheist group. If kyou're looking for company among the rare. Actually I run across vegan descriptions every day while looking for people to invite to the group, but y'all don't seem to get together so much.
Heh heh heh. Yeah, the place was freaking dead before Bruce showed up.
He responded to Asharu's post, calling her out on details, such as only 2% of all convicted rapists serving jail time ... and then she went ballistic, engaging in personal attacks and long, emotional diatribes, rather than arguing back rationally and conceding points where she may have been wrong.
... and then I get labeled a troll-enabler, for supporting rational discourse. What a freaking madhouse.
Without Bruce's contribution, Asharu's post would have prompted a few pats on the back and responses of, "Amen, sing it, sister," and the group would be completely dead again, right now.
Are we women SO fucking defenseless we need protection from WORDS now?? Sorry, I'm just NOT that much of a victim.
Thanks. I was contemplating saying something similar, but I hadn't yet. Good to hear the same thing from someone else. The women outnumber the men vastly, and yet some of them are whining about being dominated, or some such. Freaking unbelievable. Feminists are supposed to have a pair of their own.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 9000 good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, may I suggest trying the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 130 commonsense discussions to repel religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
One discussion is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers.
