I've stucka c ouple fo discussions up- jump in and discuss :)

 

Comment by Pam on April 23, 2011 at 6:03am

lol Jean Marie- sometimes I need a knock around the head to see the obvious- :) hopefully someone will come up with a nice design for us :)

Not quite what I meant about being feminine and strong but I know what you mean :) I hope - in getting to know me people will get to understand my slightly off sense of humour :)

 

I'm also keen for this not be be an 'anti' thing with an icon like 'don't need jesus' and an all-inclusive thing - so not just focussing on christianity - I can see we are going to have to have a good 'atheist women' logo lol - that tends to cover all of it :)

Good luck recovering Pam!!  We are rooting for you to have full and speedy recovery!! 

(btw, the group name is Atheist Women, the website name is Atheist Universe, so i kinda think, we don't have to worry too much about an icon "turning off" anyone who got this far!!  ha ha!!!)

That is so cool Pam, that you are open to exploring various icons. 

( i knew Adriana would throw in Hypatia, ha ha!!  We DO get to know each other around here, don't we? Adriana likes Hypatia, that brainiac woman who promoted logic and learning)

 

and i agree, nothing wrong with being both feminine and strong, but, not all women are feminine,

 nor do all women desire to be seen as feminine in the traditional sense of the word.  Just a thought, this is a very diverse website.  YAY FOR DIVERSITY!!!

YAY FOR ALL WOMEN!!!

YAY FOR PAM FOR STARTING UP THIS GROUP!!!

Comment by Adriana on April 22, 2011 at 3:15pm
No worries, Pam, we have mods on the site most of the time and all admins can get into all groups. We have not had any issues on this site at all. I will ask Michel to make an artistic icon for our group; he's really good!
Comment by Pam on April 22, 2011 at 3:08pm

yes lets let people join freely - we'll need a couple of mods tho- I will n=be around a bit over the next couple of months as I am recovering from major surgery but after that its back to work :) would be good to have mods from each side of the world too due to time zones

 

lol I don't like any of the icons either and have a thing about using invented godesses just as much as I do about invented gods-the Hypatia pic was ok but not really 'zingy'- we shall keep looking - maybe someone can make one? may just end up with the simplest 'atheist women' :)

Comment by Adriana on April 22, 2011 at 12:59pm
Hey, can we just let members join in freely, no acceptance needed? Wed can always block undesirable people. Not that I expect any.
Comment by Adriana on April 22, 2011 at 12:08pm

Or a bust of Athena?

 

Comment by Adriana on April 22, 2011 at 11:57am
Hypatia of Alexandria could be a cool icon. An atheist women thinker, philosopher, mathematician, scientist. Was killed by a rabid mob of christian men.
Comment by Adriana on April 22, 2011 at 11:53am
I'm going to be a pain...I don't like any of these icons :-)
