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.

I like the quotes from The Doctor in this German 1919 silent film.

The film seems ahead of its time.

 

"Love for one of the same sex is no less pure or noble than for one of the opposite. This orientation can be found in all levels of society, and among respected people. Those that say otherwise come only from ignorance and bigotry."

"You have to keep living; live to change the prejudices by which this man has been made one of the countless victims. ... [Y]ou must restore the honor of this man and bring justice to him, and all those who came before him, and all those to come after him. Justice through knowledge!"

Apparently K-Y will air their first Lesbian ad.  When I saw the announcement, it said KY and I thought it was the state of Kentucky.  That would have been interesting.

That video was a production from Focus On The Family, founded by James Dobson.  He also created The Family Research Council, another organization that promotes homophobia. It seems like a lot of their focus is on "protecting children" from homosexuals. It just amazes me how much ignorance there is out there - and groups like this do all they can to share their ignorance with everyone they can reach. These are the people that we should be protecting our children from.

Very informative.

Some trolls have difficulty reproducing, because they disgust one another.  Not only are they ugly, stupid, and without morals, they are often smelly as well.  That's why they have to prevent gays from finding each other.  Their theory is that a lonely horny gay person will impregnate them out of desperation, because everyone knows that gays are so horny they'll do anyone, even a stinky troll, if they don't have a gay partner at hand.  That's how trolls make more trolls, and it's why they try to prevent gays from finding each other.  Truly disgusting.

In my limited food service and retail sales experience, that is exactly what trolls look like when they come into your place of employment on Sunday and rip you a new one for working on the "sabbath" and then leave a very shabby tip.  I am very thankful I don't have to do that kind of work anymore.

Grace,

I found it very hard to watch too.  Evil trolls sometimes look almost human until they open their mouths.

I felt my brain slowly dripping out my ear as that "report" went on.  I had to shut it off.  I'm already loosing brain power to this summer cold.
