And Another Thing, Jen

Jen McCreight talks about how she is swarmed by people just because she wants to talk about topics she's interested in. She makes the claim that people hate diversity so much they want to shut her up. She doesn't understand why these people can't just not talk about those topics if they don't want to and leave her alone to talk about what she wants to.

Except it's not like that at all. Freethought Bloggers don't just talk about the topics they want to. They also redefine terms like misogynist so that they can label people who disagree with them on certain values or approaches to feminism, atheism, social justice, etc. They maliciously plot ways to prevent people they've labelled from speaking at events. They've sought to give a blogger a bad name by contacting the person's employer. They've clearly stated that if a person doesn't agree with them about a social justice issue, they are automatically against the idea of whatever social justice issue they are talking about.

If it were just a matter of you talking about what you want to talk about and me talking about whatever I want, that would be one thing. But it's not. It's about witch hunts, reputation burning and hurting people to further your own internet fame. That shit is bad for our movement.


  1. I agree with you on that. The FTBullies use the word "misogynist" as though it were a common insult like dumbass. Their definition of the word "misogynist" is so vague and broad, they destroy all its meaning.

  2. Nodnod. They're starting to remind me of high school girls. They talk and talk and talk amongst themselves and get their outrage so ramped up that it would be comically ridiculous if they weren't causing so much damage. You'd think they'd be absolutely exhausted from maintaining such hyper-vigilance against the misogynists lurking around every corner and on every bus and would give us all a break from their bullshit.
