Identifying with a group is not pointless or a sign of weakness. It is an ordinary human thing to do. A simple common symbol that just says "I don't follow a religion" is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

This is also just a t-shirt. You don't have to wear it. You don't have to wear it all the time.

I don't understand the whiners here at all. The RDF is not asking you to sign over your mortgage to them...they're just providing a t-shirt you can buy if you want, and encouraging people to be bold about their unbelief. If you aren't willing to at least openly admit to being an atheist (in whatever way you want, it doesn't have to be with a red letter A), then this place isn't for you anyway, and your complaints are irrelevant.
