My best friend is going through this situation right now. I feel very involved because we are like family more than we are friends.
We belong to a homeschool group which is a group consisting of other secular home schoolers in our area.
The issue is, the group planned a halloween party & invited all the families to attend. However, they specified that my friends daughter, Elizabeth- was NOT allowed to come because of her allergies.
To specify, she is deathly allergic to Peanuts, treenuts, coconuts, & seasame seeds. Its life threatening. She gets anaphylactic, starts to convulse and then organs start failing.
They told my friend that her other children were invited, but Elizabeth could not attend. I feel that this is terribly descriminating. Its not like they said hey, you can come but bring your own snacks. Plus, its not that hard to NOT have obvious peanuts or open peanut candies at a party. Thoughts anyone?

I would not attend that party. period. I would find something or somewhere else to go and do. and even if I had a horrible time, the next time I saw this rude host I would boost about what a wonderful time we had at the other party and say "sorry we missed your party, were going to stop by but time got away from us."
