    I live in the San Fernando Valley. Is that close enough?

      Ditto this, as said on the previous page.

      I'm kind of surprised by how many people here are from California. I've always thought of it as a very left leaning and feminist friendly state.

        Coincidence. I just happened to be reading over at NCFM and noticed they have California chapters SF, LA, and San Diego. http://ncfm.org/lead-with-us/chapters/

              We rank dead last in the U.S. for public education so chew on that fat for a minute.

                Doesn't surprise me really. Most teachers I had in my time in school didn't even want to be teachers.
                They just couldn't get other jobs out of college.

                  Sorry for going MIA there.. did any of you actually end up meeting?
                  I was thinking of trying to put together a poster campaign for the Silicon Valley/Santa Cruz/San Francisco area. Maybe even venture into Berkeley..
                  I am not sure what poster would be best, maybe even to make a new one that would get people to come check out the Detroit conference footage.
                  I am unemployed so my funds are somewhat limited but what I do have is time.. lots and lots of that.
                  If anyone who is local to the area is interested in helping me put something together, has ideas or can give me some advice on how to go about doing a poster campaign, let me know.
                  Thanks.

                    I am moving from Los Angeles to San Fransisco. Would be great to join you and the other people who responded there.

                    I have some experience with ad hoc creation of non-profits and activist groups.

                      Great, I guess just pm me whenever you want to get started on that, or you can get hold of me on facebook (because of my privacy settings I generally don't see messages from people who aren't on my friends list but anything sent to the page I run will show up as a notification, it is Anti-Feminist Egalitarians. It has a picture from the elevator scene in gangnam style with "Hey there! Coffee?". Don't worry, I won't be offended if you don't "like" the page.) That would definitely be the quickest way but I will keep checking back here.
                      I was thinking it would be great to use a little bit of the momentum that women against feminism has gained and go off of the general argument they are making by creating a few posters that show specific examples of where feminism is anti male (like NOW's position on shared parenting) or where feminism criticizes women for their choices (that one won't be hard..) in order to block the feminists' ability to fall back on straw man portrayals of themselves and the goal post moving nonsense they normally get up to.
                      Some anti domestic violence posters from a gender neutral perspective would also be good for public image, as well as stat comparisons for sexual assault and domestic violence and so on, with citations. Then of course a few more provocative posters like the quote "Feminism is socialism in panties."
                      (Edit) Also a list of some of the rights that women have that men don't or rather that men don't have which women do, either way, seems like it would make a pretty good poster.
                      Those are just some of my ideas though, and I have no idea how practical it would be to fit those things onto posters or what the ink usage would look like. I am completely open to suggestions.

                        I only wish I can find some men's rights organization in southern California where to volunteer. The NCFM LA chapter doesn't even seem to be active. Does anybody know why?
