I removed a link to our article on "reason" as that merely talks about Reason magazine. It didn't fit with the context of the article. Xalder (talk) 00:15, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Feminism[edit]

I have cut this from the article: Feminism is humanism applied to both sexes rather than just one. basically because it seems rather weird. Could somebody explain it?--Bobbing up 13:43, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Gloria Steinem,a famous feminist said: "This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race because they are easy and visible differences have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labour in which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen or those earned. We are really talking about humanism."

That said, to hell with the article, you can do what you want with it. When my edits are rolled back BEFORE any discussion I'm done with them because it reminds me too much of the C.P. Francine 14:07, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

"Good Without God"[edit]

In this article, I explore conceptions of happiness and pleasure among secular humanists in Britain. Based on fieldwork among members of the British Humanist Association, and its associated local groups, I argue that happiness for the humanists is both the promise and demand of enlightenment, of an appeal to reason over and against what they see as the irrationality of religion. For them, happiness and pleasure are subjective experiences, but they are also indices of philosophical and ethical commitments. For the humanists, in short, to be happy is to be secular.
