The atheist arse kissing is getting embarrassing

Arse kissing is not a recent phenomenon. It has probably been used since the dinosaurs (how else would a T-Rex convince anyone to help scratch himself? With those teeeeeny little arms) roamed the earth and I don’t see it disappearing any time soon. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t annoy me.

Recently on Twitter (I’m @fearblandness, hey, this is my blog, I can shamelessly promote myself) I’ve noticed an uprising in brown nosing kiss arse atheists and it’s making me vomit in my mouth a little bit. The Follow Friday posts are the worst. A particular online group of atheists constantly message each other like 13 year old girls seeing external validation.

‘#FF Follow this gorgeous atheist @insertnamehere, she’s so inspirational!’

Which is then followed by ‘Aww thanks! No YOU’RE the best!’ and so on and so forth. You’ve seen it happen on Facebook, and now I see it happening on Twitter.

You might think I’m being a jealous grumpy pants because I’m not part of their little club. I can assure you this isn’t the case. I’m only concerned that it’s making atheists on Twitter look clique-y and immature. You could accuse me of being the latter as I tweet about bodily functions a lot, but I never claim to represent a group.

Basically I’m trying to say that if you’re on Twitter and your name is ‘Atheist Avenger’ or something else equally ridiculous, keep your arse kissing to Facebook, where it belongs.

P.S. I totes want to thank Richard Dawkins for being such a strong and inspirational atheist. I ❤ him lololol!

  1. You poor poor dear. I’ll pray for you….

  2. I can agree with you. I used to participate w/that personally, under the notion that it would help us all form a comadre, but it has gotten very old. Fridays have become quite annoying to me because those #FF tweets are all I get coming to my phone (I get mobile SMS updates). I’m sure I know of a few of the people you’re talking about,

  3. Wow, that was terrific! You’re the best! You’re so inspirational!
    Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

  4. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll certainly be back.
