This is rich: “You know how I was afraid the hate would spread to my family?“ — Jen McCreight, Sept. 10, 2012.
So much for her being done with blogging at FtB. That lasted all of six days.
You know why I admire women like WoolyBumblebee? Because they aren’t whiny and don’t call hacks and most of all, they don’t easily get offended. They don’t abandon their blogs in the face of criticism or even nasty name calling. From what I have seen and read, strong women like WoolyBumblebee from Is God a Squirrel and Renee Hendricks (http://www.beliefblower.com/) would extend a big “fuck you” and a middle finger to detractors and go right along with their business without batting an eye. In my view, that is what makes a strong woman in 2012.
Jen McCreight is supposed to be this huge supporter of feminism, but she isn’t making much of a case that women are on an equal playing field with men because most men hit with the same level of criticism that McCreight has been hit with would ignore it and soldier on, as have Dawkins and other controversial male nonbelievers. Even if people are calling you the most vile of names, so what? Give them a big “FU” and move on.
I don’t condone this behavior whatsoever, but as I said in one of my videos, these people aren’t looking to take any actions. In my estimation, they are just trying to get under her skin, and apparently, they are winning.
