Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!
Daniel W

Dallas, you certainly have broadened my vocabulary and exposure to homosexual chatter. This little old white haired, oxford wearing shoes lady who putters in the garden will skip such chatter and enjoy your wise and friendly conversations on other sites. I like you and have no intention of losing you, you're a dear man.

Sentient, I can always count on you to bring me back to rational thinking. Your kind words felt compassionate for me and for the poor demented woman. 

If the woman did speak from dementia, or malice, and especially if there were those who agreed with her, there should be time for a thoughtful, reasonable homosexual to offer a counterpoint. Probably the young man behind her would not be the one; a mature, perhaps a kind, thoughtful lesbian could respond effectively in that chamber. 

Confrontation by the young and/or angry homosexual on the street, using non-violent means but firm statements, would probably be ugly, but more effective in quieting her outrageous behaviors.  She has the right to think and say what she will, but does not have the right to insult and call names. Isn't there a law against such speech? 

"There are laws against verbal assault in every jurisdiction. It is rarely invoked, unless violence is also present. It is the old Assault and Battery charge. 
Hate Crime laws also protect minorities from being threatened with slurs."

Name calling: against the law or not?

Are homophobes obsessed with gay butts? Sounds funny but "pastor" Patrick Wooden has been spewing disinformation about cell phone butt sex, so maybe so. By the way, I checked. Neither the Apple App store, nor the Android App store, has a butt sex app for cell phones. Patrick Wooden lied

Joan, I have a feeling that woman is demented.  Poor thing. 


Everyone here probably knows all of what's in this video, but it's interesting to see the information presented.  Tony Perkins knows he's lying.  He's not stupid.  He spreads hatred and lies.  And the press continues to interview him.  And why don't the reporters ask Perkins about bible marriage, and historic marriage, rather than let him spew lies without countering him with his own bible?

Joan what you say here could almost be my mantra: Life is too short, and it is so much better to just shed off the foolish, uninformed, uncaring, and unloving people and build real community with mutual care. But don't downplay your own journey through life - I can see that you with through as much as anyone, anywhere, and emerged with a loving and strong spirit.

As to that profoundly stupid woman who blathered on, she is a menace to society because good, decent, kind persons, such as myself would like to murder her in cold blood. I suppose I could settle for a vibrant tongue lashing; she will never stop her diseased thinking, nor will she value differences or recognize not all homo sapiens are created as she was. This is one time I wish there were a god and burning in an eternal fire. Surely she qualifies.

I am sure being patient and trying to educate people about LGBT is a noble cause, but if it is anything like family violence, it is a useless endeavor. A culture that holds values of seeing homosexuality as a sin, whatever that is, many think that way because they may have learned it from childhood, with heavy, emotional sermons and bible study lessons. Misinformation goes into the brain, supported by strong emotion, and one has the formula for concrete boxes around the brain.

In China it was believed footbinding  was a good thing for women and both men and women endoresed it and did what they could to make it happen. Their minds were bound.

Sex roles exist for the same reason; never mind an individual's native talent, sex determines options. Women will be the caregivers and men the providers. Both men and women suffered under such attitudes.

Race is another one that locks people into boxes from which they cannot escape.

Giving a woman control over her own body goes on the list of control over people, and for what reasons? 

So, homosexuality, family violence, footbinding, sex roles, race and women's sexuality are just a few of the issues facing an individual in a culture. 

I speak anecdotally now, but my experience is that I can not reform the church to help with family violence and I had to leave the church to find physical, mental and emotional safety.

Family was not able to recognize harm caused by brutal, thuggish behavior and I had to leave a husband and parents and family members in order to accomplish what I wanted to do, live in my own home unafraid.

I don't have homosexual or race issues with which to deal, but I assume people who do have these issues often find leaving family, religion, work, social structures that enable oppression and even death is necessary. I had it easy compared to what others have to tolerate, but the issue is, to me, don't tolerate brutes and thugs, whatever they wrap those behaviors into. Life is too short, and it is so much better to just shed off the foolish, uninformed, uncaring, and unloving people and build real community with mutual care.

if people want the rss changed I'm happy to do that.  I want it as inclusive of  L+G+B+T as possible.  Any suggestions other than pink pages?

Holy jesus, oh god, oh god! That lady is a riot!  I wonder if she was a plant.  Not as in, begonia, but a fake homophobe planted to make antigay people look looney tunes.  She did say one true thing - I do always curse after coupling.  And before.  And during.  As for the rest, just hilarious!  Judas the homo!  Kids getting S + Ds.  Man, we gotta find out who she is and have her give a speech at the next homo convention.  And that guy sitting behind her - he was about to split with laughter.  So funny!

Well, I'm 43, so I guess it's time to die.  I'm not feeling sick, so I guess I'll lick someones asshole and die of sepsis in about an hour.
