# yeah so it'd be cool if people stopped saying the word 'atheist' as if that word is a synonym for ~men's rights activists wearing fedoras~
# there are plenty of feminist atheists and atheists of colour and disabled atheists and queer atheists out there
"I dislike the word ‘atheist’ because people believe that that word means that I do not believe. I do believe. I believe in all sorts of things. I believe in hope and in the power of language and in love; I believe that made up stories can matter; I believe that everyone is important and all struggles valid; I believe in the power of the unironically enthusiastic and in so much more, but they seem to think that I do not believe in anything because I do not believe in God."
