This was a long time in coming. And I’d be lying if I said it had absolutely nothing to do with this. Sure, I found Keight’s complete dismissal of my points infuriating, but at the time, I was totally willing to let bygones be bygones for the sake of mature decency and the fact that we’re both contributors to Support Atheism and the larger atheism movement. Even when she pulled this horseshit after realizing there was someone who wasn’t lining up to suck her ass.
But, as the months progressed, I noticed my overall willingness to put up with the unending Star Wars references (we get it, Keight: you like Star Wars), the constant, pedantic, condescending, pointless “PWN”ings, and just her attitude and style were wearing mighty thin.
So I ignored her.
I didn’t unsubscribe. I didn’t write any hate mail. I was honestly too lazy to do the former and saw no reason for the latter. But then, I saw
this (the original’s been removed, so here’s a similar one):
I was both appalled and not surprised at all. I’d always thought the chick couldn’t deal with those who disagreed with her, even if they had pretty fucking good reason for it. And I’d actually been on her side of the “babies are atheists” debate until the above cats convinced me otherwise.
But to see her fail so miserably at not only making her argument, but also being decent in her rebuttal of tUKA and TBA, that was it. The straw. I grant my respect, time, and attention to those I feel merit it.
So here’s me subscribed:
And here’s me unsubscribed:
Here’s my endorsement of Keight:
And here’s my lack of endorsement of Keight:
Will this make any difference at all in Keight’s life? Of course not. One less fan of her thousands won’t make a dent in her views or ad revenue.
But at least her bullshit will have two fewer ears on which to fall.
