"Men are supposed to do all the effort of finding women. You are talking about an aspect of "rape culture".  The "effort of finding women" often takes the shape of sexual assault and rape and puts women in fear.  The…"

Yeah man, if declared atheist here in Brazil is the same thing as living in "hell" (laughs).

Welcome, Travis! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Loners and Introverts.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Texas is especially vulnerable.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
