I should have published this ages ago, but I spaced.
There’s now a new, private forum for progressive bloggers, and also for progressive members of the “progressive blogosphere” community (i.e., comment-writers). It’s called Progressive Bloggers Kicking Ass Forum. It’s intended as a sort of support group, where we prog blog types can share info, advice, supportive vibes, experiences, bitching about trolls, and general high-fiving.
There’s also a sub-forum, moderated by me, for men only – specifically, pro-feminist and feminist men. This is a forum for men to discuss ideas, thoughts and issues pertaining to men and feminism. I don’t know exactly what it’ll be yet; hopefully we’ll discover that as we go along. But it is intended to be a space for discussion without personal attacks.
Men who want to participate should first join PBKA (which requires moderator approval), and once your membership is activated click “usergroups” on the top bar. Then, on the next screen, choose pro-feminist and feminist men forum from the pull down menu, then follow the directions to join!
Although as the moderator I’m most focused on the pro-fem men group, I want to point out that the forum also includes sub-forums for feminist women only, for women of color only, and for white anti-racists only. If you’re interested in any of that, or in progressive blogging in general, please come join us..
