I posted the other day linking to Rationally Speaking.
The knives have come out.
Predictably, my recent post on some remarks made by American Atheists President David Silverman has generated a firestorm on blogs and twitter, even though I thought the opinions expressed therein are actually quite mild.
It’s funny, I get the whole privilege argument, as a white male heterosexual, it is easier for me to express my opinion, because those particular features mark me and I’m not faced with the prejudice that makes it more difficult for others to do the same.
But screw the whole ‘be silent’ B.S. I have the freedom to express myself, unlike quite a few people in this shit of a world. I’m going to use that freedom. I’m going to use the shit out of it. I should, because I can. Because everyone should, even those who can’t.
