    In the atheist community, women who speak out for equal representation and against rape and sexual harassment are also getting the same kind of responses. Including rape threats.

    I am not alone in being forced to conclude that the problem is not political, but that the same sexism and misogyny is everywhere.

      if you are getting bullied for speaking up.  This is about civility and respect for one another.  And you are right that it's not political but social and emotional.

      The men who are making these kinds of threats have a very low opinion of themselves and are feeling powerless.  So they strike by trying to shock.

      Congressional elections have consequences!

        I don't think you grasp the extent of what's going on. This is a problem that has been raging online and in RL for over a year and cuts across much of the atheist spectrum.

        Of course, not all of atheism is sexist and there is a huge amount of resistance and responsible push back against the situation. The haters are relentless and extremely nasty, but they do not go unanswered.

      although not all that common, aren't mutually exclusive.

      liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
