LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Members: 18
Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Homosexual chatter is hot:)

Dallas, you wrote, "Heh, I will not censor myself." That is exactly what I want you to do. I like you because of that. and I read you 

"don't mind prissy, little old ladies at all. : )"

I know that, and I like you. I want you to not censor yourself. A fellow told me once I was "tight assed." Well, I told him he was loose assed and we each have a right to be who we are. I could loosen up a bit, I suppose, and it would probably do me some good. If I feel like loosening up I know where to come for practice.

fixed link - intersex

Intersex life.  Not gay, not straight, not transgender - but absolutely born intersex.  If 1 of 2,000 births are intersex, it doesn't sound like a lot, but that's millions of people.  If I can find a link to the film I'll post it. This is an older video, but still relevant.

Dallas, Please, please do not stop writing what you want to write. I have no quarrel with what you express, I just don't like to read sex-task. Call me "Victorian" or "Prissy" or whatever the current words are for sexless little old ladies; I make no apologies for my tastes and need none. I just adore you and will read you on other sites and I will leave you to your pleasures. I do NOT want you censored.

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.
