You might be wondering who that would be, but the answer is right in your face. It’s ME. Yes! According to YouTube comments, which are clearly an unimpeachable, credible source, I am responsible for destroying the atheist movement. Me! And you regular readers of Pharyngula get a mention, too. It’s all our fault.

So…I’m the one denying women’s agency, but he gets to assert, against a woman’s own words, that she “decided to fuck him”. He had nothing to do with it, it was entirely the woman’s choice.
I have never heard the “old adage” that ‘men display, women choose’ in a biology class. It sounds so sweet, inocuous, and unreal. Men are just passively trying to look good, no pressure, and women are entirely the active agents in all sexual interactions. I’m sure many rapists use this kind of logic to justify their actions. “She made me do it!”
I also kinda suspect that this guy was never much of a fan of education, or that his participation in the movement was entirely about keeping education “sacrosanct”, or he wouldn’t have dived off the deep end at the mention of the word “feminism”.
I don’t want to leave all you readers out of this. You’re also responsible for the destruction of the atheist movement, you know.
I confess that despite all their assertions I don’t feel like I’ve ever been powerful enough to destroy the movement. It’s still an ego boost, though, that the people who hate me so much are such terrible human beings. I’ve got the right enemies.
