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.

she got into, and stays in, office because people vote for her.  I have not heard if there is a competing candidate for the upcoming election.  If not, it's partly the fault of the democrats in her district as well.  People can only vote her out if there is a viable opponent.

I don't know which is more annoying - Bachmann or the people who applauded her.  And what schools allow muslims but not christians to pray?  Ms. Bachmann will eliminate the dept of education....  jesus...."When I was growing up in Iowa, there was no fed dept of education" - yeah, and look what resulted, dimwit.

Maybe if I smiled that much people would think I'm as cute as this guy.   Naaahhhhh....

I don't think that guy is educatable.  Language barrier aside, he makes little sense.  Willful ignorance remains ignorance regardless of the hoops that one jumps through to inform.  Might as well try teaching monkeys to crochet.

Here's another compelling story, I think.

Mom:
"I'm glad I didn't tell you its OK because you would have been a bigger whore than you are now."

Dad:
"this cancer medication might make your son homosexual..."

Danny:
"Your son's a 'mo. Get used to it"

Sorry, really "no" to Brad Pitt, even at his peak.  Honestly, I think brains are part of it, and I don't think he's much brighter than the average toy poodle.  Hill Harper plays a doctor-turned-CSI in CSI NY.  At least we are not competing in the same pond.  Not that I'm competing with anyone anyway.

By the way, as long as y'all are discussing your tastes, give me Vin Diesel over Brad Pitt any time.  In my dreams.  But I'd take Hill Harper over either of them.  For looks, yes, but also for intellect, social responsibility, and the personality he projects in his acting.

Darren, only if ballroom dancing is on the couch and includes coitus.

Comment by Daniel W on November 26, 2011 at 4:05pm

I have tattoos and you cant trust me at all either.

I'm going to believe that your friend's grandparents were ballroom dancing, Sentient.
