For some reason this pisses me off. I mean, not that she’s an athiest. That’s fine. But everyone’s reblogging this like “BOOM, WOLF BLITZER, NOT EVERYBODY GOTTA THANK THE LORD.” I feel like she also could’ve just said “We’re very thankful.” And left it at that.
Whatever, I don’t know.
Here’s my thought on that. And I don’t in any way mean it to be insulting to religious people.
She said she’s an atheist because she is. It is an integral part of who she is just like religion is to others. She doesn’t have to thank the Lord (MY IPOD WON’T LET ME NOT CAPS THAT OH MY GOD AUTOCORRECT) just like you don’t have to thank Shiva. And by just saying “We’re thankful” she would be DENYING that integral part of who she is just so someone feels comfortable. We’ve learned not to expect that from religious people (which in the case of many like you, my friend, is not a problem) so I think religious people shouldn’t expect it from us. To me this is similar to denying your sexuality or origins or ethnicity just so someone who made an assumption doesn’t feel awkward. He’s the one who brought up religion. Not her. And it was mildly inappropriate of him.
The other thing is that this snippet doesn’t even show the part where he’s like, “Whoops, my bad!” and she responds with “I don’t blame anyone with thanking the lord.”
Besides the tv is ALWAYS filled with people thanking god and whatnot, it’s nice to have someone represent those of us who don’t believe in a god of some sort.
god there has never been a female character in any videogame ever why is the gaming industry SOOOO SEXIST?
Because female gamers need to be catered to
NO female character?…. seriously? are you blind or just a special kind of stupid?
If you meant, why are there never any realistic male characters then the simple answer is: there are, you’re just too stupid to see them too.
