How do you describe secular humanism?

A question for all of my followers: When you identify your beliefs, how do you label secular humanism? Do you describe it as a philosophy, a school of thought, a lifestyle, a religion, a faith? Why do you use the terminology you do?

There are no wrong answers, and will be no judgment. I’m curious!

In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view” 

that speaks to me
