check it.

as cara at The Curvature notes, we really love allies:

National Organization for Men Against Sexism

i clicked through her post and poked around their site - looks like they've been at this a long time, and do a variety of good stuff, like an annual "Men and Masculinity" conference that looks critically and constructively at issues of gender, social justice, and community. also, looking at their site reminded me of a great group that i used to volunteer for back in amherst:

The Men's Resource Center for Change

they've been around for ages, and i was glad to see they're still doing a ton of great work on men's issues - particularly addressing violence, domestic abuse, and male sexuality - both in western massachusetts and beyond.

this is the kind of stuff i really like to see.
