Hi! I organize for the pro-feminist group WA Men Against Sexism. I'm super happy to see a general feminist meetup group here in Seattle. Our group mostly works with the North West Men's project on examining masculinity through a feminist lens.
My girlfriend and I are excited about exploring feminism, and building ties with the community, and engaging in activism. Let me know if you need a venue for a discussion or documentary watching I have contacts with a well-connected feminist group.
I'm not much of a book reader, preferring to read articles or watch documentaries.
U-District. I have a car though so anywhere is OK.
Thanks for the email. I would love to meet up and discuss midwifery and similar topics. I considered the field myself and went back to school after a 7 year break to get my BA. I minored in Gender studies and was the only male at graduation in a school of 25000! I am free this weekend if you're available.
Thank you, that's useful info.
Thanks for being the change.
Just joined the group as an opportunity to connect with a feminist community of male allies. I'd appreciate a little more info if you don't mind. Does the culture of this group define sexism as the tools of a patriarchal power structure, or do you use it synonymously with any instance of gender descrimination? Is there a lot of concern over "reverse sexism" or "reverse racism" etc?
Thank you very much.
i'm glad the group has a new organizer.
for the next few weeks my time is limited, however thurs/fris tend to be possible and if not, i'm agreeable to having the type of conversation you suggested by telephone.
Hello! :) I was so excited to find a group like this, I'd been looking for one for a while now! I look forward to meeting you
Coffee sounds nice. I tend to get a bit intimidated when meeting lots of new people at once. It's winter break at the school I teach at so I have a ton of time on my hands these next few weeks. I would love to get together with a couple of people in a casual setting and go from there.
Hope you can make it to our next event! We'll have a blast!
