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.

Growing up with a mom and two sisters, my dad and I were out voted.  But, the results were not fair.  The females had to have the lid up, and the seat down, so that it was always ready for them.  The males had to arrange the seat according to usage.  So now, as an adult, I am getting even.  I keep both seat and lid down, for two reasons.  First, the lid is decorative, and second, I don't want any of my pets to drink the water.  So now, when my mom and sisters visit, they have the burden of lifting the lid, and I get to scold them for leaving it up.  Another bathroom issue is that women cannot understand why males sometimes urinate outside.  I have an acre and one half and the nitrogen is good for the plants.  But the main reason why men pee outside, is because we can.  So the battle of the sexes rages on.  LOL

Well I keep hearing things like that ice cubes have more germs than toilets, drinking fountains have more germs than a toilet seat...so why the hell don't we all just drink out of toilets then if they're so hygenic?!

How can I resist getting involved in this discussion?  For fuck's sake, when you are at my house, drinking my liquor, and eating my food, and sharing my cheerful company, put the toilet seat down after you pee.  All of my fags do this without instruction.

Peeing in the backyard is a bonus.  I'll join you:)

Now that would cause a row in my mum's house, Mike.

Urine is sterile.  But I'm all for the technology.  Better living through engineering.  Peace through science.

Poop on the other hand is not sterile.  I wont go there now, of to work.  I'd rather be here discussing mixed-toilets, but this is my fate.  Have a nice day.

I wanted to put a urinal in my new bathroom, no seat at all.  The contractor said it would make it harder to sell the house.  So I just pee in the back yard instead.  The tomato plants are lush and green.

See, now you're arguing about toilet seats! Apparently this is what straight marriage is like!

I like the self operating toilet seats however am concerned that we might be encouraging heterosexuality.
New Zealand is clearly not as toilet obsessed as the UK. That's probably a good thing.

There are now self-closing toilet seats.  There are even self-opening ones.  This is good technology, even if hetero-enabling.

I'm amazed you don't know what it's about, or even met anyone who does! You obviously move in very polite circles! Growing up it was me and my bothers vs my sister and mother re leaving the seat up. We did tend to argue a lot mind.

Some of my best friends are straight. But I agree about the "better". That's really what it's all about - inferiority complex.
