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.

Mike, I think what you fail to consider is that James was growing up in south Texas in the 50s.  There was a huge Berlin Wall between girl stuff and boy stuff.

 

Besides, I love the sissy.  As I have said before in this forum, the sissy is the hero of gays.  He takes the most abuse and keeps on going.  Go sissys!

Response to a discussion about intersexuality on another website: I had never heard of the movie, XXY, and thank you for recommending it.  When I was a wee lad, in grade school, I avoided male-male play like it was only for real boys.  I could not be a real boy because I was uncoordinated, afraid of being hit by baseballs, unable to shoot goals in basketball, unable to pass or catch a football, and so forth.  Instead, I played Jax with the girls.  This may have played a role to bullying in middle school, and being called names in high school.  But I had only one sexual organ between my legs and it took me the better part of a half century to realize that there is no male and no female, no normative or average.  If there are 30 billion people on earth, there are 30 billion sexualities.  Want to bet that Pat Robertson and his ilk do things to or with themselves and/or others that you would not do, and you do things Pat would not do.  That does not make anything you do bad.  That doesn't make anything Pat does good.  There are no norms or averages in human sexuality.  Also, what is between your ears is just as valid if not more so as what is between your legs.  What is between your legs is really not what matters.  It's what's in your head.

To be honest I never thought it would happen.  It's been a long journey for many.   This means a lot.

Im so out of the loop in modern pop culture I had never heard of her.  Once I did, I watched several music videos.   I think she's amazing.  And totally out, which is even better.

Damn, Richard!  Watch what you post - a Texan might see that.  Poor cowboy might lose his lunch!  Well, all in the name of health, so no harm done. :-)
