American Atheists Harassment Policy

I will admit that I am on the fringe of the Atheist movement.  While I do my own thing and that often coincides with other peoples own thing I am not "part" of the inner workings.

I have known about the issues at some of the conferences and I have read the blog posts, except for the most recent batch.

The American Atheists has just released their Sexual Harassment Policy statement and you can read the text here:  http://atheists.org/conferencecodeofconduct

Personally I am glad to see these in place.
I do not see them as limiting or anything of that sort.  These rules are common sense and frankly should not need to be spelled out, but there you go...

I am happy to see the bit about keeping the strong fragrances down.  As someone with severe allergies I appreciate this one.
