Seems to me…one of the most repugnant things people get most excited to aggressively do online…is to take peoples words and intentions, and twist them to the point that they can damage the person expressing them…

…But do they honestly know what they are talking about, when they frame another persons words “just so”, in the least charitable interpretation possible?

All the worse…we know for a fact, that many of the people who do this sort of thing are bad faith actors…who’s own integrity level comes straight out of the sewer…They, and their own words, should never be trusted at all…A lot of them are manipulators, slanderers and habitual liars…So, how can we trust them when they start accusing another person?

Looking at Richards tweet…it looks to be questioning the aggression against asking honest questions…I don’t see how it is likened, to dehumanizing trans people.

      It’s incredulous.

      As a discussion topic, what Dawkins poses is honestly quite good…for making people who actually want to think, think.

      It is insane how some atheists and humanists are responding with hostility…and maliciously smearing Dawkins over this.

      It’s tragic that a major organization like the AHA would disgrace itself, by behaving like this. It’s reputation and image have been badly damaged by this.

      …And I remember when the Friendly Atheist was a brand new face in the community…It’s very disappointing to see this come out of him…yellow journalism…not very friendly, at all.
