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.

I've heard these Family Research Institute-type people spew their illogical garbage for years ad nauseam, but even after all that time, my jaw still hits the floor every time with astonishment at their stupidity.  Now that's power!

I'd be interested to see this. Still, I'd also like to see a documentary filmmaker with a budget do something to expose this industry.

@ David. They will surely come up with something else. Never underestimate them.

Dallas - Oh, no, I wasn't asking. We all know exactly what they're going to do, which is more head-burying and raising the volume a few more decibels, as if yelling louder and more frequently will make it a truth. The question was purely rhetorical. ;-)

As Aldous Huxley wrote in Brave New World, "Sixty-two thousand four hundred repetitions make one truth."

David, don't you always take your shirt off when dancing at weddings?

Sandi, just too bad we've had a decade of misinformation based on that "exgay" study.  All we really needed was to have a group of exgays go to a gay wedding and watch the dancing men.

Sandi - Saw that yesterday in Twitter! It's a tad hard not to gloat, isn't it? What will the evangelicals do now...
