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.

See, see the Maggie sky
Marvel at its big catholic depths.
Tell me, christian do you
Wonder why the Zarking ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel dead.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your snartfart facial growth 
That looks like 
A mold. 
What's more, it knows
Your anal potting shed 
Smells of joojooflop.
Everything under the big maggie sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm Gallaghers.

I watched twice.  My leg is now a bloody stump.  They did a great makeup job on her.  Cover head with towel before viewing.  Maggie without makeup.

Perhaps that explains the impulse to gnaw my own leg off when Gallagher was talking...

Maybe that WAS Vogon poetry!

Now I can't get the image of Maggie Gallagher as a Vogon out of my head. "Resistance is useless!" In one breath she says that the purpose of marriage is procreation and then she says that sterile couples still have the right to marry because marriage should be between a man and a woman. Simply stunning.


I'd hate to hear any of her poetry.

Hey Sentient Biped -- thanks for the video on the Neanderthal Opposing Marriage -- it's really sad there are people like that out there. I will have to take a look at that book you are recommending.

Worth a read.  Really - how many books have I said that here?   Straight: The Surprisingly Short History of Heterosexuality  available on the usual Amazon / Kindle sites. here, but if you do buy it, will you go through the Nexus Amazon button?  If others read this book, I would love to start a discussion thread.  One minor disagreement:  the author claims there were no "homosexuals" or "heterosexuals" until the terms were invented in the 19th century.  That's like saying there was no pancreatic cancer until the term was invented, or no molecules until the term was invented.  Plus, there were well known same-gender-loving and different-gender-loving people throughout history.  But there are valid points, and it is a thoughtful book that treads ground that most people are unaware of.
