    I was there this weekend, and I appreciate your thoughts on the conference, Courtney. It was great meeting you and I really appreciate what you had to say on the panel. I also thank you for your comments during the second panel – after which you spoke so wonderfully about acknowledging the progress of a pro-feminist men’s movement, I apologize for tearing it down by highlighting the conference’s shortcomings.
    Still, it was great to be there and I have joined the planning committee for the next one.

    To clarify myself: I don’t think I tore down what Courtney had to say about how we should be proud of how far we have come – because we should – but someone on the panel had just said something incredibly ignorant about how the “oppressed need to listen to the oppressors” and I genuinely felt uncomfortable and reacted angrily, because I felt that way at the time.

    Thanks Stephen! I look forward to seeing how things shape up for next year. Take care.

    Is there a blog or website with more coverage of the conference? I’d love to read some of the conference papers, if they’re available.

    As a male working in this area for almost a decade, often one of the only ones in the organization, I’ve always been quite sensitive about how I was being perceived — this article has made me feel like even more of an outsider. Maybe one day, wearing my newly crafted masculinity like a tassel turned to the side, I’ll finally graduate from women’s studies 101.

    This is where the feminists started. Quite honestly we are still there to some extent. I think that people need to be more free to be who they are.
