|And isn't that the point of a greeting? To make someone feel comfortable? Not to proselytize them as though they ought to be celebrating what you celebrate?|
|Now, will I freak out if someone says Merry Christmas to me? No.. I will probably just smile and say "same to you."|
|So, I guess it's hard for someone to understand unless they have been a minority. You get used to it but you also are thankful when people have a bit more sensitivity. It's not that we are going home every night seething with anger that people have wished us a Merry Christmas, we just would appreciate a bit of acknowledgement that not all of us celebrate the same way.|
|Happy Holidays from an annoying minority.|

If certain of you xians wish to hear the saying merry Christmas more often, well, go to church. you can say it to your fellow xians all you want. Don't just go to xmas eve mass, go this weekend. Join the choir, bible study, the flower commitee, just surround yourself with bona fide xians and wish away! Nobody's stopping you.

And actor is gender neutral, no need for actress, but it does limit confusion at the academy awards
|For me, this has nothing to do with some perceived "majority privilege".|

disgusting arrogance!!! You've got to be kidding. What up with you anyway? Cause you say "merry Christmas, you're assuming someone is a Christian. I should say not!! Give us a break well you? Neither Merebear nor I have ever dis-respected anyone intentionally on this board. and I've known Merebear a whole lot longer then most of you.
Please by all means go start a thread on Pagan greetings. I wouldn't find that offensive at all.
