LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Members: 18
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

"If god had meant for man to lay with man, he would have created Adam and Barney.  If god had meant for woman to lay with woman, he would have created Eve and Rosie"  If you watch this please dont be drinking milk at the keyboard - you will ruin it.

  Plus, if you have equal rights, men who play lousy basketball will get to play on the womens' team.

Faithamerica delivered 20,000 petitions to MSNBC about their giving voice to the antigay hate group.  MSNBC refused to air their commercial.  They are well aware of the issue.  MSNBC continually offers a friendly venue to Perkins without informing their viewers of FRC's status as a hate group or including any rebuttal from progressive religious leaders. Perkins has appeared on MSNBC more often this year than on any other cable news network.  I wonder how Rachel Maddow feels about this.

Ruth - thanks.  If not for the Onion, how would we know the "rest of the story"?

Thanks, Sentient Biped. The Onion rocks as usual. The parody of shiny zooming opening patriotic animation was also a hoot.

Getting caught up on the posts here.

Good question Sentient Biped. Have you thought about writing them about it?

Comment by vegantiger on March 8, 2012 at 7:40pm

I think that's a good question to ask MSNBC.

Comment by Daniel W on March 7, 2012 at 9:06pm

why does msnbc treat the vile leader of a hate group as a credible expert of LGBT issues?

Thanking the Onion for innovative reporting on Santorum's passion about "gay marriage".
