Trigger Warning: Misogynistic asshole being misogynistic.
At first it was just the ever present spam and the occasional comment by like minded individuals. But I guess it was only a matter of time until the knuckle-draggers stumbled upon Foster Disbelief. While almost 2 full years old, my post on the Amazing Atheist (The “Amazing” Atheist Suicide Bombs Himself) continues to reliably generate site traffic. What it doesn’t generate is comments. Until now, that is.
Friends, I give you “Amazing Atheist Rocks,” in their own words :
BASTARD! THE AMAZING ATHEIST IS GREAT! I HATE FEMINIST CUNTS TOO BECOZ THEY MAKE EVERYONE SICK! THEY HATE BOYS TOO. THOSE BITCHES MUST BE MUTILATED IN THE MOST HORRENDOUS WAY POSSIBLE! FUCK YOU ASSHOLE MOTHERFUCKER DICKHEAD TURD EATER!
Nope. No misogyny in the atheist community.
In all seriousness, what kind of a person sits at a keyboard and thinks that anonymity gives them the right to call for feminists to be “mutilated in the most horrendous way possible”? What must it be like to be a woman blogger or commenter and have to face threats like this day in and day out, earned only because you want equality? To not know if the threat is serious or something you can laugh off?
While I am fairly certain the author of this comment is just mouthing off behind the shield of internet anonymity, what if he’s not?
I would rather deal with thousands of teenage abortion opponents indoctrinated to fight against a right they very well could need in the future over these entitled MRA fucks who turn their inability to get laid into an all consuming misogynistic rage.
Fellow bloggers? While I am a freedom of speech absolutist, there is a threat of violence against women in that comment. Should I do something about this? Report it to WordPress or something? Advice?
