Speaking of political tribalism, there's a Website that's been around since 2003 called Fundies Say The Darndest Things (FSTDT, for ease of reference). It's a safe harbor where staunchly leftist atheists and skeptics believe they're free to anonymously ridicule and mock whatever they take out of context. As a former 40-year atheist who calls himself Stan wrote five years ago, "…there is a link to context, but no one seems to have used it in my case [or in any target's case]. It's the sort of snake pit where the target du jour is countered with comments like '[censored],' and the standard logic errors which they insist are the logical answers to the 'idiot' they are trashing." I've been targeted by one such FSTDT member, who joined the site upon discovering my DA page: a third-wave feminist of likely British origin, given how she spells specific words, known only as JustAlongForTheRide. She's called me racist, sexist, homophobic, and a Christian Fundamentalist—all things that I know are completely untrue about me—simply because I'm a straight, white Protestant male who's politically and fiscally conservative. She's also done the same to Claire, a young lesbian friend of mine, plus a lesbian pornographic writer friend of mine who uses the pen name Sunny Johansen. I find both ironic on multiple levels.

In addition, I may have voted for Trump but only because I perceived him as the lesser of two evils (he knows what to say but not how to say it). John Kasich was my actual first choice because of his professional cadence. Not that the folks at FSTDT care because, to them, anybody who votes for Trump is "in love" with him and is required by law to be subject to as much public shaming as he is. :roll: :laughing:

So, be on the lookout for a completely anonymous British woman with no discernible features: if you say anything she doesn't like, she will take it out of context and use it against you.
