As I assume most of you who read this blog know, I recently took over from Zac Bos as president of the Boston Atheists. There has been and continues to be problems for feminists in the secular movement, and from my experience women clearly do not feel especially welcome at our events. As a reaction to that I wanted to say something about inclusiveness and the marginalized and was promoted by a BA member's blog post about feminism & secularism and conflict resolution.
Here I am speaking to the members of the Boston Atheists specifically.
If you feel mistreated, uncomfortable, or unwelcome at an event that we are hosting please come to me and let me know. Particularly if I'm the problem. This goes for everyone but doubly so for the marginalized.
Furthermore I want to say that I am blind to my privileges like everyone else; especially as a white, straight, cisgendered man.
If others treat you poorly out of blindness, I will try and shine a light. But if you see that I am acting blindly, please show me the way.
