Since last year's calendars were such a success, we'd like to do them again this year. This time, however, we're doing a montage of all photos that are submitted for each month (provided enough photos are submitted, and they meet the requirements). This is just a preliminary discussion thread, so feel free to share your ideas on what you'd like to see! We would just love some feedback on them for now.
A calendar is a marketing device, and I as a potential client would not purchase anything with babies, and tho I'm the only person mentioning it here, I'm not the only one in society who would refrain from such a purchase.
Just a matter of knowing the target market...
Actually I'm not much into famous quotes either...
I still use wall calendars for keeping track of things. Sure, it's a dry erase calendar, but I prefer it to digital methods. I'd use this calendar primarily for decoration, but also for its original, historical use. ;)
Calendars ARE promotional tools, you promote what you show in it... they are what they are
I guess by your line of thinking, we should not have any white people there, because the political angle is that it promotes racism. Chinese? Communists! Men? Mysongynistic & patriarchal! Gays? Promotes homosexuality! Dogs? That is anti-cat!
You see something political in everything, right? Well, then are you saying we can't have anything in the calendar unless you approve of whatever political shape you see in this Rorschach test?
Oh, for the love of FSM... there are so few black atheists that it's not surprising there may have only been 1 or 2 on that calendar, or none at all. And if none of them submitted pictures, then how else are they going to get on the calendar?
Stop assuming the worse. Implying racism where there might be none is just dangerous.
I know we aren't racist! But I think we should make the effort, in that if no non-whites volunteer images ... to maybe give a special shout-out? to maybe give some encouragement. They know their communities are harsh on atheists so it may be harder for them to make a public display.
