More of the latter - job security, family issues, that sort of thing. On occasion, damage to personal property, like a keyed car. I've never felt endangered, but I don't want to deal with being disowned by my family or a discriminatory boss over something as stupid as religion. I'm open and happy with my friends, and that's enough for me.
I have a job that doesn't require much but being able to understand people with an Indian accent, super simple. Lol I wish you the best with your comedy career. Let me know if you're going to perform anywhere near Charlotte.
Hi Joseph! Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I try to go to the ACA meetings when I get a chance. I noticed you were raised Catholic, I was raised Baptist and de-converted later. Hope you are having a good day.
Lol, "Pastor Johnny Hunt" runs that church. I remember being forced to go there when I was very young.
No college for me yet. Though knowledge is a passion of mine, I love to self-educate. I'm a bit of a dork, I own multiple college books in various subjects; mostly medical and biology. I actually plan on staying around here. The climate is very nice and they crazy "followers" don't scare me much. Plus, there isn't a lot to do around here so having them debate with me and watching their reactions to things they get stumped on is always fun.
And yes, Dinosaurs was pretty awesome. I haven't seen it in a long time, brings back memories.
Don't really do much with photography, just too much time to mess around with photoshop.:)
And it's worse than bad around here. It's almost scary really, but I do like to travel to Atlanta every now and again to get away from it. I live about 5 miles away from a literal "Jesus Dome". Not many atheists around here, none within a decent radius that I know of anyhow.
Haha xD I do like fem-slash but good ones are rather hard to find. The guy-slash community usually has waaaaay better writers but they sometimes do write the occasional fem-slash which I enjoy reading~ I tend to stick to reading stuff from my favourite writers and their recs. I like reading Pansy/Astoria from the Harry Potter fandom, actually I like reading Pansy/anyone xD Her voice in fanfiction is ♥
I "deconverted" about eight months ago. I was actually a pagan before that, and a Roman Catholic before that. I was talking with my fiance one day and realized that I was basically saying, "Your Abrahamic god? So irrational. But my ancient Celtic deities, which have no more evidence than the Abrahamic god for existing? Totally real."
As soon as I caught the hypocrisy of it all, I renounced all gods and started identifying as an atheist. (I also felt a little sick inside because I hate hypocrisy more than just about anything else.)
I'll definitely be looking forward to your performance when you find the time to post it up and thanks for the add! =)
I definitely like comedians who don't mind making fun if themselves. The best ones are usually the ones who have the guts to make a fool out of themselves~ I've always admired that about comedians, it takes alot of balls to do that in my opinion. Its different when it around a group of friends compared to in front of an audience full of strangers, I think to much about what others might think of me. Probably a result from being raised having to always "behave" around others.
