The feminism forum isn't women only. None of the forums are member-of-oppressed-group-only. They are, however, supposed to be a place where the point of view of women, or people of colour, or aboriginal people, or workers, are reflected primarily.
So, if you see a thread in the feminism forum has 9 out of 10 posts by men, that's probably not a great sign. Or, if you notice that minority viewpoints are being squeezed out, that's probably a good indication that it's time to step back.
Think of it this way: if you're a man in the feminism forum, you're a guest. If you were a guest at someone's place, you wouldn't take over their home and act like you owned the place, right? Well, women "own the place" in the feminism forum. Feminist women, that is.

Thanks Michelle, I'll keep that in mind. [img]smile.gif" border="0[/img]
