Look, I agree, rape jokes are bad. They aren't funny. The Amazing Atheist can, and has, and probably will, act like a massive douche to people. But he is
telling a joke. It's not funny to you, and it's definitely not funny to the people he was making fun of, but they aren't real threats. If the jokes he told caused real trauma, there's a case to be made. But the second you say "Fuck this guy, I'm out", he's gone. He can't/won't find you through the interwebs and harass you IRL (and, again, if he did, there'd be a case to be made). Real life is your safe space from him. Jesus, look what you've got me doing. I'm writing a whole damn essay defending the Amazing Atheist. Long story short: he's an asshole, to be sure, but, IMO, a harmless one. And, unfortunately, the only way to avoid the assholes online is to keep your stuff as private as possible or keep it offline entirely. Is that a good way of doing things? No, of course not. I'd love for everybody to be able to share their experiences with others in a safe environment, if that helps them, but that just isn't how it works at present.
