Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

the group is open to men :) Adriana- you are right :)
Comment by Pam on April 22, 2011 at 6:13am
the icon is supposed to be ironic and humourous and a poke in the eye to patriarchy- it is thinking outside the box and using a way of thinking that men have about women and turning it back upon them - nothing wrong with being feminine and strong at the same time- also the 'real women are atheist' excludes a lot of women who are maybe thinking about it and may put them off - I find it kind of restricting

sorry, i realize it is more difficult than it seems to find good icons...i did that once myself, it isn't easy, and you will never please everyone, but, that is childlike.  I grew up in 1950s, when women were supposed to act, and often did succumb to the pressure, to act childlike. 

It's left me with a lifelong aversion to picturing women as child like.  just a thought. 

Comment by Jean Marie on April 22, 2011 at 4:09am

*I* do not feel "little" nor a "Miss"

 i strive to be, and like to picture myself more powerful, strong, courageous, progressive, mature, brave, and assertive than that, but, I'M GLAD YOU STARTED A WOMEN'S ATHEIST GROUP!! thank you!!

signed, a real, actual WOMAN, {not a little girl, not a miss.}

ha ha!!  LOVE THE GROUP NAME, the icon makes *me* cringe,

 as a strong

full grown

 woman

who has zero urge to feign being childlike, at all.  mmMmm.

 

...BUT LOVE THE GROUP IDEA AND GROUP NAME!!!  YAY!!!

 THANK YOU!!!

I personally would leave it open to men if they want to join and if it's been taken over we can change the moderation or kick the disruptors out :-)
Comment by Pam on April 21, 2011 at 4:49pm
Last group I started for women on another forum got taken over by men- who tend to have a habit of reframing what we say and telling us what we mean- I guess if they can restrain themselves from doing that then they would be welcome lol
Comment by Adriana on April 21, 2011 at 4:45pm

To make other members admins you can go to Options and Pick "moderate Members"

So will you limit it to women only? Feminist men can't join? We can always kick people out if they are not being civil or if they are being disruptive.

I invited all my female "friends" from the site for now. You can go to under Members and click on Invite more. You can also invite people not currently at Atheist Universe and simply use the url of the group to ask them to join.

Love it, thanks, Pam!
