(n.) Affinis [uh-fin-is] is Latin for Affinity:
a natural liking for or attraction to a person, thing, idea, etc.
a person, thing, idea, etc., for which such a natural liking or attraction is felt.
Affinis Humanity incorporates Intersectional Humanism (IH) as a secular social model addressing the discriminatory acts religion asserts on gender, sex, and race.
What is Intersectionality?
Intersectionality is an analytical framework for understanding how aspects of a person's social and political identities combine to create different modes of discrimination and privilege.
What is Humanism?
Humanism is an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to humans rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.
We align Intersectionality and Humanism to encourage critical thinking to address the problematic woes that gender, sex, and race face with insular religions.
