    I was very impressed with everyone who attended. Nobody lost their nerve despite the relentless harassment of the protesters. It speaks volumes to the type of crowds that CAFE has been attracting at these events as well as the U of T hosts. It also speaks volumes about who is against these issues based on these protesters behaviour which is evident in all video related content online right now.

    Hi Peter, thanks for reply. I think the focus of your post is "...what feminists do is of no importance for us..."
    This is like talking about Jews in the Third Reich and saying "what Nazis did is of no importance, we have to concentrate only on Jewish problems in concentration camps".
    I have more female kids than male kids and my point of view can be designated as gynocentric. I want my girls to exploit their husbands fully, but our feminist dictatorship decreases productivity of men, so women have less to exploit. I am against nationalism because it poisons ties with other nations, without benefits for own nation. For same reason I am against feminism, because it poisons gender relationships.
    You wrote "we need support of public institutions..." Our system has a name - feminist dictatorship. Those who don't know it are confused constantly and can't explain the world around us. Sincerly, Tom

    Tom...

    Though I respect you comment and position CAFE is not about questioning feminist dictatorship but rather bringing issues concerning males that have for now been relativily ignored. Even saying something like 'feminist dictatorship' is not in our context. What femisits do or what is of no importance to us as a group, we just want people to relaize that in certian area's, males are in crisis and we need the support of public institutions to stand up and realize that the changes in our socienty are not one sided and that all members male and female have issues that need to be discussed and resloved.

    Events where gender relationships are analyzed are useful. This one touched many important issues, but failed to discuss or offer analysis. E.g. one question asked was how our feminist dictatorship hurts women. The opportunity to put an itemized list of losses for women was left unused. Instead of putting such list on blackboard, the presenters offerd a weak narration. An itemized list is always more powerful than narration. A visual presentation with texts and pictures would have been more memorable. The authors have discovered many truths, but burried these truths among lots of stream-of-consciousness monologues. I hope next event will be more dynamic. Good the orgaizers limited length of questions, I hope next time will limit presentation too, to make space for more dialogues.
    And use visual opportunities of the auditorium.
