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.

The quote that I posted is not what you said.  Posting it again ""idal has consistently argued that the term "homosexual" has no validity, because human sexuality is too complex and diverse to be reduced to binary terms."  That does not state that he thinks all humans are bisexual.  It says he thinks human sexuality is diverse.  If he meant that he thinks all  humans are bisexual, he would say so - Vidal is nothing if not careful with his words.  Other than that correction, again, I won't be baited into that discussion again.

@Sentient
Just out of curiosity, what is it that you think separates Vidal's view from any other view that all humans have the potential to be attracted to both sexes (aka "are bisexual") that gives his more validity?

@Dallas Gaytheist
I think Gore Vidal is me?  Also, that propaganda video is terrible...  I hate how harmful ignorance can be...

You've got mail!  (here today a stroll outside would have the cold shower effect.  Typical Pacific Northwest day.

Does your shower have a "cold" setting?

Oh, on Perkins, well, doing it doesn't mean he liked it.  I go to work every day, but do I like that?  :-)

Damn!  St. Louis is the new San Francisco Bay Area?  Who'ld a thunk it!  What next, San Antonio?

from wikipedia, Perkins "reportedly had affairs with actorsRock Hudson and Tab Hunter, dancer Rudolf Nureyev, composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim and dancer-choreographer Grover Dale"...  I guess he wanted to practice until he found someone who could do sex that he actually did like.  Practice makes perfect.

It was rumored that Rock Hudson and Anthony Perkins had some flings.  Hot!

 

Admitting to having gay sex but saying you didn't like it...uh, yeah.  That's kind of like saying you smoked pot but didn't inhale.

large pasta shells stuffed with a ricotta/mozarella/parmesan/basil/garlic filling, covered in a spicy pasta sauce and baked.  I add slicces of garlic to the sauce and use a pecorno romano instead of the parmesan, I think it gives a more earthy flavor.
