Gay or Atheist

Postby UnhealthyTruthseeker » Sun Aug 23, 2009 12:13 pm

Which do think faces more trouble in your particular corner of the world? Is it harder to be gay or an atheist? Even though they claim that atheists are the most mistrusted minority, I don't think that it's too hard to be an atheist. I think that most of the problem with atheism is the stigma attached to the word itself. If you say "I don't believe in god." you will tend, in my experience (which obviously doesn't constitute proof), to get a better reaction than if you say "I'm an atheist." I'm not gay, so I don't know how you guys have it.

P.S. Probably the transgenders have it worse than either group, but they aren't part of this discussion. (Discrimination! :p ) Actually they aren't because I want a legitimate comparison. It seems too obvious what the answer would be if transgenders were an option.
A little homework for you!

Of course, around uber fundies, you will get a bad reaction regardless of whether you say you're an atheist or you say you don't believe in god, but I was talking about around ordinary people.

I live in the southern United States. i am an Atheist, but i will say that being Gay is alot harder. Atheism can eventually be accepted or worked out into acceptance. Homosexuality would be terrorized with bulling and teasing, and never would be accepted. I feel sorry for them.

Atheists definitely have it easier. After all, atheism is a choice, so atheists can just convert to christianity or islam or whatever the dominant religion in their area is in order to gain acceptance.

I had no idea atheists faced any sort of prejudice.

Gays gets the worse rap here then, though it still isn't that bad. Though I haven't met any... so maybe they're treated a lot worse than I suspect.

No discrimination against atheists here at all. Still homophobia though. And transphobia.

But think of how much you're hurting the poor, non-consenting pineapples when you engage in your perversion!

Well, technically, they are. If they didn't want to be abused by large, ugly, smelly humans, they wouldn't smell and look so nice to them, but instead disguise their scent and appearance so people are no longer interested in them. Q.E.D.

Homosexuals/Lesbians do... which I find absurd... Even within a traditional christian framework one sin should be treated no different than another... But these types have "pet sins" which they like to pander upon, and denounce...
Such heroic nonsense!
