Prepare for amazement

We saw yesterday that Jaclyn “stop all this divisiveness!!” Glenn is a fan or friend or both of The Amazing Atheist.

amazMy knowledge of what exactly is horrible about the Amazing Atheist was a little rusty though (well there are so many misogynist ragers among the atheists) so I went looking for details. And found them.

RationalWiki has a useful entry.

What a guy…

As an example of his respect and care for his fellow humans, in his pompous and self-indulgent e-book Scumbag: Musings of a Subhuman (2007), Kincaid writes:[3]

Rape isn’t fatal. So imagine my indignation when I saw a chatroom called “Rape Survivors.” Is this supposed to impress me? Someone fucked you when you didn’t want to be fucked and you’re amazed that you survived? Unless he used a chainsaw instead of his dick, what’s the big deal? … The word survivor applies to people who are alive after being stabbed 73 times with an ice pick or mauled by rabid wolverines, not to a woman who gets dick when she doesn’t want it. Just because you got raped, you have to rape the English language? You vindictive bitch! Also, don’t you ever get tired of being the victim? How many failed relationships are you going to blame on a single violation of your personal space?

In the following section, Kincaid recalls a female acquaintance who rejected a guy for his small penis size. The anecdote culminates in Kincaid’s hilarious punchline:[4]

I told her, “You’re lucky it wasn’t me. I’d have busted your fucking nose and raped you.”

The “Sex” segment of the book closes with the chapter “Tits vs. Ass: The Final Showdown,” which features a helpful comparison chart of pros and cons, with such charming observations as tits being “hard to stare at without the girl noticing,” while “you can take a picture [of her ass] and she won’t be any the wiser.”[5]

And then there’s the “drown in rape semen” item.

On February 2012, in a thread on the MensRights subreddit about a disasteful username on a feminist board, he made a “joke” about how he wanted to violently rape one of its users. When he was informed the person in question was an actual rape victim and called out by said person for his abusive language and lack of respect for people with post-traumatic stress disorder, he complained about the very concept of trigger warnings and posted further graphic descriptions of how he would rape her again in a deliberate attempt to make her relive her trauma. Choice statements include “I will make you a rape victim if you don’t fuck off.” and “I think we should give the guy who raped you a medal. I hope you fucking drown in rape semen, you ugly, mean-spirited cow.”[1] Supposedly this was some sort of clever satire of… something.[17] This “Amazing” guy was taken to task by PZ Myers and others for his misogyny.[18][19] [20] He did eventually apologize, but refused to make it public because that would mean admitting that threatening to rape people on the internet is crossing a line.[21]

And Jaclyn “stop all this divisiveness!!” Glenn is a fan and perhaps friend of that guy. The Jaclyn Glenn whose anti-feminsm video Richard Dawkins called “brilliant” yesterday. Yeah I’m really going to take advice on how to be not divisive from that Jaclyn Glenn.


  1. Dunc says

    Ye dark gods, I’d forgotten how bad this guy is. Yeah, I’m amazed all right, but not in a good way…

  2. Seven of Mine, formerly piegasm says

    Yep, TJ Kincaid is as vile as they get.

    Also interesting to note: rape is apparently both no big deal and the most intimidating thing he can threaten to do to a woman.

  3. Stacy says

    Oh, yeah–TJ Kincaid, “The Amazing Atheist.” I’d forgotten about him.

    He discovered Glenn and promotes her, I hear.

    Mr. Amazing and Ms. Brilliant.

  4. johnthedrunkard says

    Where can I get some more ‘divisive’?

    I can’t carry enough bleach home from the store to wash the stink off otherwise.

  5. Andrew B. says

    Ooh, he sounds like a winner. Can’t wait to see when he becomes one Richard Dawkins’ “Secular Stars.”

  6. Athywren says

    Yeah, seriously, if we’re fostering division between us, I’m happy about it. Sure, not all of the people on the other side of that ol’ rift are virulent misogynists – some just don’t care if they associate with virulent misogynists, and some don’t bother checking out who they’re working with, but I don’t see how any of those contribute to a socially positive skeptic movement, so deepen the rift. Sure, some of those who just aren’t checking out who they’re working with might just not be aware that there’s anything to check out, and they might not be aware that they’re being lied to about us, but it’s not like there aren’t any rope bridges available for when they start investigating on their own, is it?

    Rape isn’t fatal. So imagine my indignation when I saw a chatroom called “Rape Survivors.”

    I doubt he came across this chatroom by accident. He must deliberately seek these places so he can practice being the despicable human being he is. Also I think that apology he made for the things he said on the mensrights subreddit was more of a non apology.

  8. Blanche Quizno says

    Oh, you mean a “non-apology” like the popular indirect apology?

    “I’m sorry you got offended when I called you a misogynist epithet.”


  9. says

    Wow, I thought I was jaded enough by now to not have this stuff make me feel physically ill but this one takes the biscuit. I think I need to go play with my puppies to get that out of my head now.

  10. Bjarte Foshaug says

    And let’s not forget that this was the guy who saw it fit to post a video mocking a teenage girl who had just been bullied to death. Yet, make no mistake. If you think there should be any limit to the ability of the worst men on the planet to seek personal gratification at women’s expense, then Movement Atheism™ has a far greater problem with you than with guys like him.

  11. says

    I just saw a link on Manboobz to a tumblr quoting directly from Amazeman’s (self-published) book;

    Nature already has an age of consent. That age is approximately 12-13, otherwise known as the onset of puberty. We don’t need Christian morals to set an arbitrary age on when a sexually mature human female can mate legally. We already have clear parameters on sexually [sic] maturity as established by the law of evolution, and acting within those parameters does not under any reasonable definition constitute “rape”. Moreover, because this irrational moral imperialism is almostly solely applied against males who pursue relationships with younger females, I do believe the change of age-of-consent laws should be a critical area of focus for Men’s Rights Activists.

    I’m struggling to get past his misconceptions about puberty and physical sexual maturity to count the other errors in that paragraph. The *onset* of puberty is the *beginning* of the bodily changes associated with physical sexual maturity rather than the sign of the *completion* of the bodily changes associated with physical sexual maturity. Women need more than just the beginning of the menstrual cycle for their bodies to be ready for pregnancy.

    Hm. Think I might go post this on my own joint too.

  12. S Mukherjee says

    What a despicable sack of shit. What makes him think that rape survivors may not have gone through a beating as well? I suppose he’s too ignorant to know that ‘survivors’ is a term adopted because they didn’t want to think of themselves as primarily victims. And then he berates them for thinking of themselves as victims!

    I’m worried for Glenn. Annoying and cringe-inducing as she is, I don’t want her to be harmed by this person and I really hope she doesn’t have to find out the hard way what kind of man he is.

  13. Silentbob says

    Is the only evidence that Glenn is a fan/friend of TJ that she quoted him in a Facebook post?

    If so, (at the risk of stating the obvious) it seems a bit presumptuous to imply in the final paragraph that she approves (or is aware) of all his views.

    (I’ve seen Taslima Nasreen quote Christopher Hitchens, but I don’t draw the conclusion she thinks women can’t funny, or is big fan of the US invasion of Iraq.)

  14. lochaber says

    ach. yeah, if I run across these sorts of rifts, I’m likely to turn around and try to find the biggest local stick, and then use that to try and push the other side across that rift as far away from me as possible.

    I’m not sure there are sticks big enough…

  15. splen says

    Youtube keeps recommending I watch his videos. I did once. It was a rant about how disabled people shouldn’t get their own special parking spaces. Yeah.

  16. Seven of Mine, formerly piegasm says

    Silentbob @ 16

    Nobody is suggesting that she approves of all of his views; in fact, I’m quite certain she wouldn’t if she knew this stuff about him. The point is, it should give her pause that TJ Fucking Kincaid is rushing to her defense now that she’s coming under fire for the stuff she’s said about feminism.
