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.

Well, considering that Asian culture typically favors male children, and that the current crop of males are entering adolescence...

I feel like this is either one of those "Find the error" puzzles, or it's something that was badly translated from some other language to English (e.g., Japanese).

Hey, hey, hey! I'm offended by this. Where is the box for Irish-Americans huh?  Idjuts.

Dallas that is hilarious.  Where is it from?

LOL!!! Thanks, Dallas. What a riot. I really needed a good laugh. Great.

Lol, I just found this and love it! - and not just because I support gay rights, as we get older we all need all the 'support' we can get.

Most of those are very stupid indeed.  I loved in one of the comments where the claim was noted that AIDS started from a man having sex with a monkey then having sex with men.  Damn those simiansexuals.

Something uplifting on a Sunday morning.... 

 
I have mixed feelings about "What would you do", which is kind of an ethical Candid Camera - is it ethical to "set people up" with situations that are fraught with emotion, in public settings, on film? In this case, it really was rewarding to see the overwhelming support among so many bystanders.  I don't know what I would do - although I like to think I would have stood up to the "jerk" (actor) for trying to ruin a special moment.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for a wedding, too. Here's wishing all my best for these two beautiful people and their future together. Mazel tov.
