Pink is always the answer

I’m not sure about the ponies, though. Kittens are obviously a much better tactic for getting women to join atheist groups.

    I love her ending. She forgot to mention chocolate though. Because all women love chocolate more than anything else. If there’s free chocolate, I am so joining!

    “As an alternative to these measures, you can treat women like unique individuals whose desires and aspirations can’t be pinned down by their gender.”What? That’s crazy talk! >:|

    I’m allergic to ponies. I vote for puppies.

    Ponies are skittish dangerous animals that I would not want at an meet up. I have however brought homemade chocolates to local events. The appeal of the noms is independent of gender. Yay Chocolate.

    What about pink kittens riding ponies made of chocolate?

    If the Seattle Atheists start meeting at Pony, that’d be an incentive for me. (http://www.thestranger.com/sea

    Well, I’d go with the alternate plan, but kittens sounds good too. And not just for women…Tell you what though, I bet ponies don’t waste time praying to hypothetical supreme beings…

    Nice food transcends gender. Cookies are generally popular at any sort of meeting or group or whatever, in my experience, and some GMs at my role-play soc are successful at luring players to their games with food of various sorts…

    Not if you want to keep the boys out.

    I initially read that as Kittens taste good too.

    Very clever. If she makes a sequel she could mention having a Barbie dream house at the meetings.

    Someone’s been playing too much Dwarf Fortress.

    I’m allergic to ponies too. Represent!

    Lol. I did always think it was odd hearing about attracting more women to the movement. As though we were strange alien beings to be sent smoke signals across the the cosmos.

    True enough, but you realize that the whole issue started with someone’s observation that atheist/skeptical meetings were noticeably white male dominated? The implication was that either women and nonwhites were being excluded, or that something was making it unappealing to them.It’s an interesting observation of both skeptics and liberals – you can make baseless accusations, but we’re open-minded enough to at least consider the possibility. Then we get razzed for trying to ensure that they are baseless. But the general consensus was that we were already damned before that, so no net loss…

    I’m convinced that there are two types of people in the world. Those who like chocolate, and those who lie about not liking it.

    I’d join a paedophilic sex cult for chocolate.

    Too bad all you get is some cardboardesque crackers, cheap wine, and other people’s germs.

    None of the first three things she said appeal to me… Does that make me a guy? xP

  20. 20

    Hilarious, though part of me worries about people taking it seriously…

    But I do just that! “Hey, babe. I really dig your big…frontal lobes. Let’s you and me do something blasphemous after the meetup. I’ll show you my Dawkins if you’ll show me your Hitchens, if you know what I mean.”Works every time. :p

    Funny thing is, there’s a female regular at out Meetups who’s really into scrapbooking. I totally have to send her a link to this. She’ll laugh her ass off.

  23. 23

    Ponies! I’m all about the ponies.The scrapbooking part had me dying.

  24. 24

    How about kitties? I’m a guy and an atheist and I like kittes. I’d go to an atheistic-kittie-petters-event (the petters being atheistic, though the kitties can be as well).

  25. 25

    I finally have a name for my rock band!

  26. 26

    Do women think there’s something about Atheist groups that is off-putting? Or is just the regrettable fact that women in general (although I hate generalising) tend to be more religious?

  27. 27

    What? Where’s the tl;dr? You should do tl;drs to summarize all of the videos you post, they’re hilarious. In fact, you should do it for every post, just for hilarity.tl;dr – Moar tl;drs plz

    If I were a Seattle atheist, I’m afraid I’d have to vote “neigh” on that.(Sorry. Can never resist a bad pun.)

    Kittens are more convenient, too. A lot cheaper, and easier to transport. But seriously, I really like the video.

    What about the part where all the guys in the meeting hit on her? That’s popular too.

  31. 31

    Pink and ponies???? *confused* Perhaps I would never understand this. *sigh*

  32. 32

    Too bad she punted at the end. Bad technique.

  33. 33
