LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

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.

The Onion had a good take on the gay Doritos.
frankly, I dont think Doritos are gay. I think the ginger wasabi potato chips are gay. And the pacific truffle potato chips.
They're just jealous because no one made christian Doritos. But they have communion wafers.

So now it's "gay" Doritos, eh?  [sigh]  These poor believing fools ... some of 'em, anyway ... will just believe ANYTHING, won't they?

PA-THE-TIC.

Never mind climate change, ISIS, the refugee crisis and a Republican primary field that resemble piranha more than politicians. There's a far more pressing catastrophe afoot: gay Doritos!

'Gay' Doritos Prompt Freak-Out
A special bag of Doritos benefiting the It Gets Better Project has bigots foaming at the mouth

BY AMANDA MARCOTTE September 18, 2015
. . . Specifically, homophobic bigots are freaking out about Doritos this week, upon the news that the popular cheesy chip-maker is releasing a special rainbow-colored bag in partnership with the It Gets Better Project, a non-profit established by sex advice columnist Dan Savage to combat mental illness and suicide in LGBT youth. Conservative media is not interested in your talk of preventing youth suicide, it seems. That bag looks queer, dammit, and they will not have it.
Cheese dust will turn you kids gay
"Doritos are a product marketed to children, so they make the perfect gateway snack to introduce children to the joys of homosexuality," writes Ed Straker of the ironically named American Thinker website. "What business does PepsiCo have pushing homosexuality on our kids?"

Good for Pataki.
what's up with the name, "Kim". Back in the good old days, we had Kim Novak - cool. Now all we have is Kim Kardashian, and Lil Kim, and Kim Jung Il, and now the insufferable Kim Davis. Did someone put a curse on the name? I dont even want to look at Kimchi any more.

Kudos to George Pataki for saying he would have fired Kim Davis. He also said there's one place in the world where religion precedes the rule of law - Iran.

That's pretty much my idea of the christian god's love.

I embedded this video on Don's post on the same topic.  Liked it so much, here it is where it's equally appropriate.


I get the feeling that Ms. Davis isn't very bright.

Ruth, that chemistry gif is adorable.

That's funny, Ruth!  I love it.
