An Inquiry Into the Prejudice Against Skepticism

If you are a skeptic...
Do you as a minority encounter prejudice or racism in the community that you live in? Do you have a story of how your cultural background played a vital role or stood as an obstacle in front of your journey to skepticism? If so, what were some of hardships that you faced amongst your peers, family, or the community? To my fellow female skeptics, since there seems to be so few women in the skeptical movement, I would also like to hear from your perspectives as well. I would also accept the concept that as skeptics, we are in some sense a minority when compared to the rest of society. As skeptics, we all face the prejudices of non-skeptics. So, please feel free to share your thoughts or experiences of navigating through any of these themes.
