Women of Reason Feminine Friday--Cross list with FoF

Women of Reason Dallas has its main social meetup the first Friday of the month.

Join your fellow female freethinkers to discuss whatever topic crosses our minds!

Gentlemen, we appreciate the support you give the women in your life, but we do wish to keep this space only for those who identify as women.

FAQ:

Q: "Why women only?" or "Why are you trying to exclude men?"

A: The Dallas Plano Atheist Meetup (DPAM) is welcoming to all, but we recognize that safe spaces are needed for some groups, including those that wish to discuss issues unique to women. We appreciate that you kindly respect these boundaries.

Q: Does the DPAM have other events besides this one?

A: Yes!  We have dinner every Tuesday night at a variety of locations.  We also have other events that are cross listed with other atheist groups around the Metroplex.  We look forward to seeing you at another event!

Q:   I don't identify as a woman.  Why do I get these e-mails?

A:  From Philip: 

"Some gatherings are intended for a sub-set of the larger group. With the way that meetup handles "announcement"­ notifications for a group, though, members of the group at-large get e-mail about the specific meetups targeted at the sub-set.

It really doesn't make sense to force that sub-group to start an entirely new top-level Meetup Group just for a sub-set of the larger group, particularly since that's part of why the sub-group is meeting in the first place. There's already enough marginalization and alienation that certain sub-groups already have in our community, which is why I (as an organizer) 100% support having an event directed at those that want and need to discuss topics important to or support those in that sub-group.

When you get e-mail about those events, consider it not in your interest area and just use the delete key to pass it by while knowing you're part of the larger community doing what's needed to help all feel welcome."

Q: I still feel uncomfortable about a group dedicated to a subset.  Can I ask more about this?

A: Of course, we love reasonable discussions!  If you behave in a troll-like manner, however, you will be reported to the administrators of this group and possibly banned.

    I really want to come to this, but I have to be honest and say that I'm actually a Maybe. I often make plans for Fridays and then once Friday comes and I get off work, I just want to go home. Here's hoping June 6th is different! I'd really like to meet and chat with all the ladies from this group. =)
