LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

Nontheist lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people & friends.

Members: 18
Latest Activity: yesterday

Forum is now open for comments only, due to limited moderation.

The original creator has been absent 8 years.  She may no longer identify as Lesbian or as Atheist, but could still experience discrimination due to being listed as creator of this group.  This group does come up on internet search with this person, and her photo photo, as group creator.  We live in era when discrimination can be expected to increase on many fronts.

I moderated since that time. On several occasions, I requested that another member moderate, but was unable to find a volunteer who would actively moderate content.

Please be aware, posts left active on this group, especially discussion forum, can be hazardous to members, even ones who have been gone for many years.  In most states and countries, there is no protection for LGBT people regarding employment, housing, or employment.  The same is true regarding atheists.  Some members may not even be aware of discrimination, and may not be aware that their old posts and images are still there to come back and haunt them.  Posts and the membership list are visible on internet searches.

There has been at least one case of a member of Atheist Nexus experiencing employment discrimination due to their membership. 

Another member of Atheist Nexus was murdered in India, in 2011 (Ajita Kamal).  As far as I can tell, the perpetrator and motive were never found, but Kamal was a known atheist, and known atheists are frequently targeted for brutal killings in South Asia.

Any member who posts, without having their own photo or name on their screen name and avatar, is expressing implied agreement, by default, about the importance of privacy, even on the internet.

A controversial group needs an active moderator, who will look out for the needs and safety of the members, as much as possible in such a forum.

As has recently been done, posts on Atheist Nexus are subject to screenshots.  They are also be subject to internet search.

I recommend that interested members start a new LGBT group, so that there is no issue with long absent group creator and no longer having a moderator.  Until that time, this group is open for a rolling comment wall.  I am not able to expire comments without closing the entire comment page, due to host program (Ning) limitations on moderation.

Viable Female and Male Mice from Two Fathers Produced Using Stem Cell Technology

Great news! My only concern is that it would further the right wing fight against stem cell research.

just wanted something different.   The pug will go when I find something I think works well.  The Sam Hendon video in comments is a good contender, actually.

By the way, the pug screen saver has been on my computer for over six years. I have four pugs and I am a volunteer for pug rescue. Everytime someone sees this screen saver they send it to me, not knowing that I have had it for so long. Anyway, it makes me smile everytime I see it.

We have a few friends, including this born again Baptist in the Illinois legislature.

To be honest I'm surprised by the amount of patience Maddow had for a man who essentially thinks it's okay for her to be murdered by the state.

Gary thanks for the update. Looks like he's still in the US and might have an interview with Rachel Maddow.

NEWS FLASH. Bahati rejected.

David Bahati denied entrance to Washington DC conference
Posted on December 7th, 2010 by Warren

http://wthrockmorton.com/2010/12/07/david-bahati-denied-entrance-to...

Doug Hadden, spokesman for the International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management, just informed me that David Bahati, author of Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill attempted to enter the financial management conference this morning, saying:

He arrived mid morning and was informed of the decision. It turns out that we didn’t have his proper e-mail address for his phone. There was a frank but calm discussion and Mr. Bahati was not able to enter the building.

Mr. Hadden is referring to the decision to bar Bahati from the ICGFM conference going on now in Washington, DC.

DAVID BAHATI the UGANDAN MP – Author of KILL the GAYS BILL IS in D.C. lezgetreal

What is most insidious is the likelihood that Bahati’s ultimate intent and plan in being here in the US is to garner support of his US collaborators , which include specific Evangelical co-conspirators, to support his run for the next Ugandan Parliament, for a campaign based very much on the Kill Gay Hate Bill that he has already introduced to the Ugandan Parliament

See the link for more info. This disgusting evil man and his hatemongering evangelical coconspirators make me feel sick. Which is what they want.
