He’s a massively misogynistic, ableist, and racist toolbag.
And the way that many atheists worship him and refuse to acknowledge or critique his problematic statements is PERFECTLY ironic considering they are so against the idea of worshipping anyone/anything, especially those who’ve done bad things. Does that make sense?
Like they’ll rail against Muslims because child-marriage is written about in the Qur-‘an, but Dawkins says something about how not all pedophilia is that big of a deal and they rush to his defense, not seeing that they’re doing the same FAITHFUL, IDOL-WORSHIPPING SHIT they are convinced is the source of all evil and ignorance. They put him on a pedestal and refuse to allow criticism of him, JUST LIKE RELIGIONS DO. It’s hilariously ironic.
I was a Dawkins fan when I first realized I was an atheist, but then I realized he’s an obnoxious, privileged, egomaniacal, sexist dickwad and I don’t need “atheist idols” any more than I need “doesn’t-believe-in-bigfoot idols”.
