LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

If the Log Cabin Republicans want to sell their "soul" and hitch their cart to a dying, fractured and increasingly extremist entity as the GOP, I say fine.  Let them all crash and burn together.  I have no tears to shed.  The insubstantial influence of Log Cabin Republicans neither helps or harms anyone in the LGBTQ community. 

Per the old adage, they are "as useless as tits on a bull."

Dan Savage is right. Log Cabin Repubs are insane.

Well, Loren - I'd say yours wins on gravitas, but The Donald tongue wrestling with Tailgunner Ted gets the nod for pure fabulousity.

And here I thought the FFRF and I had put up a pretty cool billboard!  DAMN!

  • “You can back the GOP or you can advocate for equal rights for LGBT people.You can’t do both at once—and anyone who claims to be doing both is lying.”

--Dan Savage, in a comment directed to Log Cabin Republicans

Ana Kasparian follows up christian predictions, one year after gay marriage sweeps the land.
