Women of Reason Dallas--Feminine Friday

  • Aug 1, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • TBA

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.


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

A: The Fellowship of Freethought Dallas 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 Fellowship of Freethought Dallas have other events besides this one?

A: Yes!  Besides our monthly gathering on the third Sunday of the month, we lots of other social and outreach activities for all people to participate in!  Check out our calendar on the meetup page.  We look forward to seeing you at another one of our many events!

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

A:  Some events 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. 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 are reasonable people who 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'm in the back room of the selected La Madeleine, crocheting with wine to share.

    I don't know the location, so I'll try to make it next time. I tried to change my email preferences, but guess that didnt help.

      I am so sorry, I have been playing "whack a troll" most of the afternoon. Probably being over protective....but hopefully our boundaries will be better respected next time.

    Sorry to miss this. One of these months, the planets will align, and all will work out so I can actually attend.... And, yes, joking about the planets' alignments affecting my social calendar ;)!

    Hi everyone! We have a problem with the Torchy's location so I had to change the venue. You should get a pm w/the new address. Let me know if you you didn't get the message.
