So, I will let the readers decide who is being reasonable and rational and who is being abusive. Fun fact, I have never posted in the slymepit. I have never even registered at that forum. I haven’t even read it in months. Additionally, I am not sure how to disavow a video by Renee that she didn’t make. Oh, I also learned that I spend my time harassing Skepchik through twitter. WHO KNEW??
Katie is fed up with the bullying of the Skepchiks and one in particular,
Rebecca Watson (and a lot of her following, really) is a cyber bully. Plain and simple. For a (semi) recent example, see this. Sara pointed out a very legitimate point but instead of discussing that point in a logical and interesting manner Rebecca just attacks her. I have seen this happen a number of times with Rebecca and other people on the skepchick network. When people point out a legit problem they attack instead of thoughtfully engage.
She has decided enough is enough and quit her position as a Teen Skepchik to return to the site The Canadian Atheist.
She has pointed out that if you disagree with Rebecca or her minions that you will be eaten alive-
Go try and disagree with Rebecca or someone on that site (or off the site) and see how fast the skepchick network minions jump on you and eat you alive.
I suggest that is because of the crossover of commenters that pollinate both the Skepchik blogs and the Freethought Blogs.
She goes on –
I don’t want to be associated with these attitudes and approaches to real life problems. I would rather be associated with thoughtful and clam reactions to what people say.
I understand the feeling the, Katie. Good luck to you!
