Hello, I just joined Atheist Nexus. I'm grateful to have found a safe environment of like-minded peoples :)
In this age of Internet Surfing... have any of you suffered negative effects when others 'google' your name (for whatever reason) and see that you are a member of this forum? This Yuma AZ is a good-ole-boy small town and I've already encountered bigotry from being an 'out' Lesbian.
If anyone has experienced such, can you please suggest how one might handle negativity/hate? I'm well known here due to my former Fire Dept PR position & professional community involvement. I also just included my photo. I'm certainly not afraid, but want to be prepared as I am judged more for speaking out as non-religious, than speaking out as gay, ha.
