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.

Ban genital surgery on intersex children.

Intersex people are the most forgotten and ignored og the LGBTQI crazy quilt of people, but there are many out there whose mistreatment left them physically and mentally wounded for life.  It is no better than religious based genital mutilation.  LGBT activists so fully forget intersex people, they are rarely mentioned.

Worship A Gay Martyr At The Oscar Wilde Temple

Logo

Lovers of Oscar Wilde will have soon a proper place to worship the iconic Irish wit and writer.

Artist duo David McDermott and Peter McGough, better known as McDermott & McGough, will unveil the Oscar Wilde Temple, a public installation two decades in the making, in New York this fall.

Presented in collaboration with the New York LGBT Center and the Church of the Village, the installation will combine painting, sculpture, and site-specific elements designed to transport visitors back to the time of Wilde’s 1882-83 visit to America.

You're right, Daniel, friends and partners come in all shapes and colours. The only people that truly disgust me are immoral people, but that's perhaps a sign of growing older.

I'm not sure which is worse:  people like Mr. Root harboring those pathetic thoughts in the first place, or believing it's OK to say them publicly.  Either way, he's contributing to what's wrong with this world...bigly.

Bertold, I enjoy the sight of a good-looking woman as much as the next guy.  As it comes to news, though, as I said, I expect CONTENT and COMPETENCE.

Side note: for being 75, Lesley Stahl looks pretty damned good from where I sit, though that's a total non-sequitur, really.

Aw, Loren, you don't like T & A???

Comment by Loren Miller on July 20, 2017 at 8:04pm

Don't watch Megyn Kelly, have never watched Megyn Kelly, and seriously doubt I will ever have any interest in watching Megyn Kelly in the future.  As it comes to women reporters I respect, Lesley Stahl, Elizabeth Palmer, Christiane Amanpour, and Holly Williams go to the head of the class, as well as several others whose work I've seen on CBS.

These women deliver SUBSTANCE, and as it comes to news reporting, that is my primary interest.

What scares me is the number of people who believe this kind of shit. (Obama's still after your guns, you know.)

Who is this Root character? I have not heard his name before, as far as I know. A little search and this is what I found:

"Gay, By Kyle Mantyla | July 18, 2017 2:37 pm

"On his radio program yesterday, right-wing commentatorconspiracy theorist and DonaldTrumpobsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root rejoiced over the poor ratings that Megyn Kelly has received since leaving Fox News for NBC, attributing the results to the fact that liberal men won’t watch her show because they are all gay.

“She’s got great legs,” he said. “She’s a hot babe and no one gives a crap about her. You know why? Because a hot babe on Fox News, Republican men loved her; take her off Fox News, now the whole world knows what she is. Republican men like me, I wouldn’t tune in. Screw Megyn Kelly.”

“I hope she dies,” Root said, before quickly adding that he meant that he hopes “her ratings plummet and her career dies” because “she tried to screw over our man, Donald Trump.”

“Outside of Fox News, you have no support,” he continued. “You had the hottest show in the country, my friend, and what did you do? You spit in our face. Now you’re done. All those Republican men who appreciate beautiful women, we don’t like you anymore, we’re never going to give you the time of day, Megyn Kelly. Who’s left? Liberal women won’t like you because you’re coming from Fox News and liberal men, well, they’re all gay or they don’t appreciate pretty women.”

Scum keeps slithering out of the rocks where they hid like venomous snakes waiting for opportunity to strike.

BB,  that's a weird guy.

On top of the obvious reasons to fit him to a straight jacket, I always wonder why blonde hair  is the default  for sexy or beautiful.  I mean, a person can be blonde and be alluring and gorgeous,  but the same is true for raven black, or brown, or red.  Then again, I know Im abnormal.  I think the same way about skin color, or eyes, and always did have a taste for what others consider exotic.
