LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Members: 17
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.

Watch out who you hire as a contractor.  UK contractor was found guilty for harassing a gay client, by shouting slurs then leaving concrete penises in his yard.  Unfortunately, the contractor was was unable to attend trial due to broken ankle after being thrown down stairs by a co-defendant.

How awful!  Have mercy on me!  The vogons would chew their own legs off!  Fingernails on the chalkboard would be less annoying!

Ay yi yi, I can't STAND Victoria Jackson. "And she talks about it ALL DAY LONG." Even though she believes in god, I love the Jewish woman who knows more about the bible and church history than that ignorant twit Jackson, whose public (and SNL) persona is really just a bad take-off on Gracie Allen's "Dumb Dora."

Except that Gracie Allen was funny.

Say goodnight, Victoria.

Victoria Jackson, what an annoying person, at cpac:

OK, both of you, actually, there is no god, the bible is false, and religion persecutes people.

Nope, that's from Hitchhiker's Guide! It's very canonical profanity, if a bit mixed. The more usual expression would be, "Zarking farkwads!" Or, "Zarking photon!" Hmm, maybe this is why I'm still single...

See, see the Maggie sky
Marvel at its big catholic depths.
Tell me, christian do you
Wonder why the Zarking ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel dead.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your snartfart facial growth 
That looks like 
A mold. 
What's more, it knows
Your anal potting shed 
Smells of joojooflop.
Everything under the big maggie sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm Gallaghers.

I watched twice.  My leg is now a bloody stump.  They did a great makeup job on her.  Cover head with towel before viewing.  Maggie without makeup.
