Wow, Matt Cavanaugh! Really? All those subjects have come up? Cool.
But what if I do not want to have to deal with photoshopped sex picture, sexist name calling, cries about feminazis and the occasional AVfM member?
Umm... don't visit The Slymepit?

The â€˜pitters may be suppressing empathy.
We don't like you, and we don't like what you're trying to do -- there's nothing to empathize with in the first place, bro. And, since y'all are too afraid to debate us directly, and have declared No Quarter in your Kulturkampf, you've left us with with few options other than tackling you indirectly via satire.

I suppose Iâ€™m putting too fine a point on it, but the pompous Pit self-aggrandizement on display in this thread is annoying as hell.
This post accuses Slymepitters, as a group, of "harassment." I appreciate Ms. Benson allowing us to respond to that accusation.

The Pit actively engages in harassment. There is no question about this if you have any understanding of what actual harassment is.
I'm aware of no definition of harassment, common or legal, that applies to any content at The Slymepit. But I'd be interested in you providing some examples, with an explanation of just how each is illegal. I'd happily present your findings as a guest post on my blog.
Also, if Ms. Benson believes the content at The Slymepit to be harassment, it is curious why she has yet to take legal action.

I think weâ€™re supposed to be impressed by the long and varied list. Right, because blogs (for instance) donâ€™t talk about long varied lists of things. This blog right here for instance doesnâ€™t talk about a long varied list of things. Only the people at the slime pit can do that.
Hankstar asked for evidence of "vibrant intellectual" content at the Pit. Why are you now giving me grief for providing it?
I have no desire to impress you or persuade you. I'd gladly debate you civilly and rationally on issues of import, but I doubt you're open to that. I do wish to see your attempt, to graft assorted social justice causes onto atheism, fail. That makes me no more a bad person than your desire to succeed makes you one. But it does make you and I antagonists. So don't be surprised when 'Pitters antagonize you. Either engage us directly on the issues, or just ignore us.
