Whenever I have something to say about Dawkins that isn’t hugely complimentary, I expect some harassment, and I get it. I did not expect the comment that showed up this morning.
Okay, that’s not quite true. I expected the long, rambling part where the commenter couldn’t tell the difference between saying aborting a fetus you don’t want to carry to term is okay a claiming it’s the one right thing to do. I expected the petty butchering of FtBloggers’ names. I expected the anti-social justice vitriol. I expected to be called fat.
I just didn’t expect this.
The WordPress-converted emoticons were an extra special touch.
And that wasn’t even all of it. It was, shall we say, insufficient. The ASCII penis was enhanced, in a manner of speaking, by copying the last several lines of text.
No, I’m not mad. I’m sad that on top of this guy (yes, by the name, this is a guy) being unable to comprehend or construct an argument, he can’t even manage to construct a competent proxy penis with which to harass me.
Dawkins, you need better “defenders”.
