BuzzFeed: The 21 Things Atheist Girls Love

Buzzfeed’s Natasha Vargas-Cooper has compiled a listicle of 21 Things Atheist Girls Love. What’s on the list? Here’s a glimpse:

We should keep in mind this is all about entertainment and it’s not to be taken all that seriously… but there are some items on the list that are bound to upset people.

Like #1 on the list, Christopher Hitchens, who argued that women aren’t funny, and “the concept of free will,” which isn’t exactly specific to atheist women… or even atheists… or even women. I also thought it was interesting that no female freethought authors/thinkers appeared on the list (it’s not like there’s a complete lack of options).

Anyway, the whole thing is easy to criticize — the commenters certainly hold little back — but I’m not sure there’s much that could’ve been put on this list that wouldn’t have upset at least some individuals. Hell, is there anything that all “atheist girls” like?

The problem may just be with the headline itself. It’s inviting criticism before the list even begins.
