LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Latest Activity: Oct 10

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.

You know your god is man-made when he hates all the same people you do.

Mr. President, thank you! I love and admire you. If you ever need a buddy, here I am. It was nice having you as president - sorry about that 2012 election, and say hi to President Romney in Jan 2013.

This was from Joe.my.god under the heading "silver lining"

Actually I didn't know a sh*t cloud could have a silver lining.... but here it is. To my sisters and brothers in Mississippi, as well as Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, and South Carolina, all I can say is, I feel so bad for you. Been there. Sorry, taking that tour of the South off my bucket list.

One of my friends is a paralegal in North Carolina and she will accept that the law passed because not all the votes have been counted.

My dear friends. Just let me say that your anger is just. Your cause is just. Gay rights are human rights. For us all. Even though I am straight, I will defend you every chance I get, for the most selfish reason of all. I benefit when others rights are defended, and am diminished when they are arbitrarily abrogated in such a way. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy with your obvious pain. You are both in my thoughts. A battle is lost, but the war will continue.  Please be well in all things. May peace find you and soothe your troubles.

58% of North Carolinians think that you, and I, are pieces of sh*t.  Oh well, probably 85% of Mississipians and Alabamians and South Carolinians feel that way.  Assholes.

We lost a fun gay atheist, Maurice Sendak.
