LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Members: 18
Latest Activity: Nov 16

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.

Cynthia Nixon:  "I don’t pull out the “bisexual” word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals."  She goes on to give a description of herself as bi.

It seems like every LGBT site I look at, and some not-LGBT sites, is promoting that Nixon states that she chooses to be gay.  Looking deeper, what she is saying is that she's bi, but doesn't like the label because she feels that a lot of people out there don't like bi people.  By the same token, I can say I'm not overweight and bald, because people don't like overweight bald men.

I get annoyed that, because Nixon is an actress, and an out member of the LGBT demographic, she is considered as having so much more voice than other people.  And then, what she is said to have said doesn't describe the situation anyway.

A man with a message

Looking at the ascendency of Newt, I'm feeling concerned that he actually has a chance. That bothers me less than what that says about the voters. I have to remind myself, this was S. Carolina, where hypocrisy and bigotry are popular. Supportive messages from sexy movie people might ease some of the pain. (and I am the anti-celeb guy. go figure).

Thank you TFA.  For some reason, the flight staff would not let bring a snow shovel with my carryon.  Actually, at Denny's, you can't see Nexus or um...  other stuff.  At Starbucks, you can see Nexus, but not that other stuff.  Not that I know that.

Sentient, Welcome to Chicago!  Just in time for the snow.  Hope you brought your shovel and some wool gloves.  Your cute pair with the sequins for your night out on the town just won't do in this weather.

P.S. You don't have to lie.  We all know you were looking at porn.

It's strange.  Im traveling (Chicago) and tried to log in from a restaurant - AN was blocked by the "porn blocker".  At another restaurant, it was not.

Indiana issues pro LGBT-youth  license plate.  Yes, Indiana - the state between Ohio and Illinois, "North Kentucky".

 

I'm in shock. Is it possible there was a change in the past 30 years? Nice thought!  

So, when will we see the same plate concept in Texas?

p.s.  due to some of the language in the video below, you probably don't want to play it in the workplace.  some workplaces have worse language, but I don't want to get anyone into trouble.

Edna Jean Robinson wants you to make her proud.

Cute ad.

140 years of Black Male Couples.  Really moving article.  To assume that all, or any of these are actual "couples", or gay, may well be stretching it, but at least in the photos these men are clearly enjoying one another's company.  It's a beautiful collection of photos.
