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.

Off nexus for a day and then there's this!  Well, there does not seem to be a consensus (damn those early days in LGBT consciousnesss raising groups) but Richard has taken the high ground in moving his adventure to a discussion.  Thank you all for a respectful conversation.  Time to move on to something else?

I second Adrienne's suggestion. I was going to suggest it myself, but I haven't been here long enough to feel comfortable doing so.

Comment by Adrienne on June 29, 2011 at 4:14pm
Richard, could you maybe move it to an entry, so the people who want to celebrate with you can follow easily, and those of us who are not into dudes or voyeurism can filter the discussion without unsubbing from the central group notices?

Mike the next time you meet a fabulously hot guy who spins you right round, you have my full permission to gross me out with all the details! ;-)  Just know I've been deliberately summary thus far and left out all the really good bits! :-P

One can only hope.

He puts on this act like he's oh-so serious and grumpy but he's a total teddy bear really.

SO incredibly sexy it's unbelievable.

He's growing a beard for some pick-up shots in a few weeks, I didn't like it at first, but I'm getting rather now to like it.  Tickles a little.

Well today will live long in the memory.  I kiss boys (and do other *terrible* things to them, and they to me) - oh and I LOVE it.

Afterwards we just lay naked and cuddled  - and we kissed, oh so much my lips are numb, I don't think I've been kissed that much ever - in aggregate!  let alone in the space of an afternoon!! :P

He's feeling quite smitten, and I'm close to feeling the same Two utterly extraordinary days, but everything today felt just absolutely right.


Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
