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.

Oregon to have the USA's first openly bisexual governor.    This follows scandals related to current governor Democrat John Kitzhaber's heterosexual relationship, something about his fiance's influence peddling or some such almost-Republischer behavior.  I don't know, I quit paying attention to Portland and Oregon politics when the place went hipster, grieving the formerly grungy pre-yuppy brewery district.  

Sorry, I digress.  Anyway, Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown is openly bisexual, has a good record, and is a promising likely new Governor for the state of Oregon. 

The last high level openly LGBT person in Oregon was Portland Mayor Sam Brown, who had a sex scandal with underage Intern Beau Breedlove, although the underage part was supposedly  just 2 fairly chaste sounding kisses on the lips, and there was no sex until after Breedlove's 18th birthday.  Adam's career seems to have gone down the toilet, so we need for Brown to behave so we don't keep getting politicians who tarnish our reputation.   I don't know what's happened to Breedlove, or if that's even his real name.

With same-sex marriage coming to Alabama, local news is on the lookout.  Sort of.  And you never know about squirrels.

Pat, I'm getting to the point where majority voters like those in Alabama and Kansas frighten me.  Their willful ignorance is appalling/

Comment by Pat on February 12, 2015 at 7:05pm

Bertold, your second point is painfully true. Same thing with Chief Justice Moore of Alabama. He was thrown off the bench and the rubes put him back on there. Voters of the likes who are in Alabama and Kansas - think American Taliban.

@ Pat - Hey, you're being way too harsh and critical about poor Sam, for two reasons. First of all, you can't blame him, it was simply good promotion for his campaign, because he IS a double donged dildo.

(Love the alliteration. You could even say he's a dumber than dogshit dorkass double donged dildo.)

And secondly, wherein does the real problem lie? He not only got elected, he got RE-elected. As long as there are supporters for his ilk along with the Osteen/Craig contingency, can you blame an unprincipled opportunistic scumbag for turning over a not-so-honest buck by running the cons they do?

He elaborated on that very idea in his column today, linked below.

Thanks Bertold. I like the comment about the governor of a state selling butt plugs named Brownback.

OK. Here's what I don't get about the Ohh Soo Moral Brownback. Because of his fiscal policies, Kansas is now broke. So broke, in fact, that in 2014, they had to engage in the sale of sex toys. Since the auction is now over, I couldn't locate the site where the State of Kansas was auctioning off a double donged dildo. But I swear I saw it (and laughed my ass off till there were tears in my eyes).

Try as I might, I can't seem to find which book of the buybull sanctions battery powered "jack packs" while prohibiting normal love between two adult humans. Can someone help me out here?

Per Jon Stewart, "Sam Brownback clicked his heels together three times and said, There's no place like homophobia."
