In the dorms we can put anything we want on our doors. I have seen some people post things like "trust in god", "Jesus is with you", and that kind of stuff. I decided to put something up that said "Atheist Pride".

Well, within a week it was torn up.

I thought, maybe it was just someone having a rough day, so I made a new one that said the same thing. Torn down within a week.

Wtf? Can't handle that someone is an atheist? It isn't even saying something offensive.

So, I have put another, but this time it says the following:
I'm an atheist and PROUD!
Don't like it? Deal with it!
Think I'm wrong? Let's discuss it!
Going to tear this down like the others? You're an as$hole!

I think this one might last... not.

If it makes you feel better, am sure a picture of Taylor Swift would get torn down quicker

It's probably the hand of God Himself tearing down your sign. Never thought of that one now did you heathen?

It appears as though you were putting up the sign for a reaction - and you got one. Am not sure what you are proud of though. Its kind of like me being proud that I don't like Taylor Swift (but I kind of guiltily like Shake it off)

Now the new sign makes you look like an angry militant and the 99.5% of people that didn't rip your pride sign down are thinking... man those atheists are grumpy bastards

It is a saying that some friends came up with at a convention I was at to signify pride that you were different than the norm in regards to religion and that you were willing to discuss it.

I don't think so. I overheard some people laughing and saying that it was funny (doors are not very soundproof).

Make photo copies of the sign, you'll be good to go.

Also, see if you can catch them in the act. If you're friends with other people on the floor, alert them to the situation and have them be on the lookout.

You could also alert the RA or Hall Admin to what is going on. This is no less abusive than someone tearing down the religious signs on your neighbors' doors, or any other piece of your property.

Did you have to put the dollar symbol on the sign as well to ensure it wasn't considered offensive language?

No, I had to here though. Where I am from, it isn't really "offensive language" to call someone an as$hole, not anymore than "douche-bag", "dick", etc.

Not sure why you would say that "college students (in general) suck" when its likely that only one person is doing this, but whatever.

A sign like that isn't going to make people "think" because religion is a highly emotional topic, and most people have a confirmation bias for their beliefs. Thats why I never go out of my way to discuss it with people.

Never thought of that before...

Let me make a new sign that says:
I am an atheist, don't touch this sign

Now we can see who... Oh, everyone is getting sick

Did they perform an autopsy to make sure that the signs were torn? I just can't believe that there are people in this world that tear signs ;*(

I mean, putting up an atheism sticker is literally to say only that there is no hope such as conceived of by the religiously minded, in your opinion. Put up a f*cking humanism sticker or something, dumbass.

I don't think tearing up other people's property because you are offended by it is acceptable, although it seems you disagree.
