Hello, everyone. I'm new here and don't know if I'm doing this correctly.. If I'm not, please let me know. 
I'm from the lower part of Alabama. Growing up here is rough for someone who has "no faith". I came out as an atheist in Middle School and lost many friends because of it. People around here don't like my way of thinking and I grew up hating religious people because of the way they treated me. Now that I'm older, I have met people who accept me the way I am but I don't know many people who think the way I do. I joined this site to be around people who understand me better. I do apologize if this blog post is different then what it should be. Like I said, I am new. I just want to feel accepted and to let others know that there are free-thinkers even here in the midst of religion.

Welcome to AN, Tianna! I understand living in the bible belt, coming from Texas and having lived in Georgia, as well. I'm really amazed and impressed that you came out in the midst of a religious area at such a young age. Kudos to you! This makes me hopeful that more freethinking youth will feel safe enough not to hide their lack of belief.
