Richard, nice to meet you. If you look under the avatar and your name on the left you will see you are listed as "Female". That is what created the confusion. Some women hide their gender so we respect their choice. Glad I don't have to feel confused in the future. Anyway, you are very welcome here.
Hello Richard, surprised to discover you are female. I had the avatar pictured as a male and now I can view it as a female. Thanks. I'll not tell; others can find out for themselves.
I am glad to see you on Atheist|Nexus. We are a diverse lot, with so many different groups, forums and blogs, you will not run out of reading material. You will also find some like-minded people, even as they have a wide view of the world. Kind of like fingerprints, no two are alike.
This is an especially great place to rant, however the real value is thinking about things in new ways and finding more options.
I hope you enjoy your time here and contribute whatever it is you want to share.
