Gender Roles, Feminism and the Humanist Perspective
I was asked to comment on the Humanist perspective as it relates to gender roles and feminism. So, that’s what I’m doing. You might be unhappy to find out that we don’t really have a consensus on these issues as Humanists. For instance, some of us are ok with porn and some of us think porn exploits women. With that much range on some very basic issues within the Humanist community, it makes it rather hard to comment and make a blanket statement about the Humanist perspective on topics related to gender. But there are some basic concepts that almost all Humanists agree on, so I’ll focus on those.
