First, I belong to more than one club, and this did not happen at my QRZ location. Last week the club president sent out an email reminder of the upcoming Christmas party. In short order another member posted, "As I've mentioned before, calling it a Christmas party is not very inclusive." He then went on a diatribe about inclusiveness mentioning that, from Nov. 1st to Jan. 15th 7 religions celebrate 29 holidays, then on to mention solstice, non-religious, etc. I'm interested in hearing, 1. if anyone else has had similar situations at their clubs and how/if it affected the club, 2. how did your club members react, 3.do you agree with the guy and why, 4. do you think anywhere near like I do on this (Below)? Personally, I think his diatribe was just another example of people having to crap on anything they don't necessarily follow, care for, or practice. Seems to me indicative of the now popular (SJW) Social Justice Warrior mentality of being offended at anything that doesn't recognize every other race, creed, color, religion, orientation, planetary system, RF mode of operation, or any other trait one choses. His diatribe resulted in significant replies to the email thread. Some well thought out and presented. Some using absurdity to point out the absurdness, some humerous jabs, some "I'm done", at least one "Remove me from the list", and a few that were polite versions of STFU. The club president relented and renamed it the "Holiday" party, and though I think an apology wasn't owed, he oppolgized for any offense taken. Personally, I think we may lose some participation over this. The listserve already has. Ham clubs are (IMHO) supposed to be fun. They're supposed to be a place to learn the hobby, imporove one's abilities, make friends, maybe help out your community, and hopefully promote positive attitudes. Thoughts?
