LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

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.

The only way for such a study to be statistially valid would be to include nutrition status, body habitus, age, ethnicity, kinsey scale status, birth order, and circumcision status, in a polynomial regression model. That will also be helpful with the baseball player issue.

I don't know if there will be a conflating issue of "grow-ers" vs. "show-ers". That might be a separate study.

Unfortunately, I'm too old and tired for such an exstensive research project. Mike, I'll leave that up to you.

"Dear Democrats" - hits the nail on the head. It's a love/hate thing. The Democrats love to be in power and want to stay that way, and they love gay votes and money, but hate that gays want to be actually treated as human. "The gays" hate to see Rebuglicans back in power, with all that entails, and would love to be treated as equal but hey, better to be in a dysfunctional relationship, than have a noose around your neck, so generally support Democrats knowing full well it's not ideal.

Plus politicians and religionists in both parties know that gays have bigger penises and are very jealous.

sacha, this is of grave importance... do you know if bisexual men have larger or smaller penises than gay or heterosexual men?

...and what's the difference between homosexual and heterosexual women? Hair length?

Welcome to the group, Gaytheist. Your name sounds familiar. Are you on some other networking groups?
Comment by The Flaming Pi on May 19, 2010 at 10:40am
Yes. Welcome, Gaytheist. I'm glad you decided to join.

Welcome, The Gaytheist!

Hello hello! The Flaming Pi summoned me from the YouTube netherworld and said that I should join, so I followed his advice. I'm glad to find so many other LGBT atheists here. :-)
