Dear Ms Blumner, the fact is that Richard Dawkins’ Twitter feed has
become a source of power for those who wish to silence and harass
minority voices in the atheist and feminist communities and beyond. His
comments on abortion and Down syndrome, rape, pedophilia, Islamism, feminism, people with disabilities, white privilege and social justice
are not “something that is pretty tame if you unpack it.” His comments
are divisive, incendiary and out-right damaging to already muffled
voices hoping to to be heard and wishing to be part of a community.
There are plenty of more tweets I could link to- including ones he has recently deleted, but quite frankly this topic has gotten tired don’t you think?
