Greetings, Doubtful Daughter! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Jan. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
I don't use my real name b/c I worry about discrimination at work, and to some extent at school; I am not attending now I have had some really religious teachers at college ( public college! ). And if it makes you feel better maybe anonymity will lead to a more open and honest you? ; maybe that's just me :-))
