I'm Confused[edit]

Why are there numerous atheist YouTubers on this list because they defended a guy who made one transphobic video? This is not a defense of transphobia, this is a rhetorical question. One video alone doesn't represent the person's entire views. I also am not sure about Rationality Rules being an anti-feminist, as he made videos defending women, including their right to abort their babies. As for the video about trans athletes, this is explainable. A lot of people are somehow concerned that a trans woman in an event for women and vice versa somehow results in an unfair advantage. There are two ways we could solve this: we could ban trans athletes altogether, this is actually transphobic, or we could make all Olympic events non-binary. That way, both men and women compete in the same sports, and the issue of trans athletes competing wouldn't be a problem.Jeh2ow Damn son! 19:25, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

It's a defense of transphobic dog whistles, so it's still transphobic no matter how you cut it. Oxyaena Harass 20:01, 6 January 2020 (UTC)


Rationality Rules and Matt Dillahunty? Really? I mean the rest of the list was reasonable but whoever put these guys in here clearly only watched the first video about trans athletes that Rationality Rules made(a video that he deleted and apologised for whilst donating all of the money he made for it to a LGBT+ charity) He later clarified his position, explaining that he believed that trans women who transitioned after puberty had an unfair advantage in certain sports, a position shared by the scientific community. And all Matt Dillahunty said was crucifying him for one fuck up was ridiculous. Evilatheistheathen (talk) 12:09, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
