Just thought I'd comment here to link you to an iiinteresting discussion of the topic I just read; http://blog.shrub.com/archives/tekanji/2007-05-18_602 I found that article relatively convincing, though I'm a little unsettled by the whole catch-22 they're running; it's okay for men to join in if they agree with what the women are discussing, but if a man criticises what the women say, he's automatically wrong simply because he is a man? It is more nuanced with that, and the people they're talking about are clearly wankers, but I'm not sure I can swallow the concept whole - especially not when I'm seeing pretty reasonable comments from men being dismissed out of hand as 'intrusive', 'privileged', or as attempts to 'hijack' the conversation.

(the first linked essay - the one hosted on trickster/symposium - is partly about a group I'm a member of, Scans_Daily, which now carries a disclaimer about its original ethos as a result of repeated questioning of the slash-happy atmosphere by male n00bs. They were morans, but yet...I might make a rant about slash and the female gaze, I dunno.)

The privilege issue is an interesting one. I do think that men have privilege in relation to women in a general sense, but it's not monolithic. Class and race and sexual orientation and all kinds of other things play a role in the way people are treated and the expectations placed on them too. I don't understand the point in trying to simplify everything so that it's all male/female without looking at the nuances.
As far as women-only spaces...I don't get it either. In fact, I think that it's very useful to have those kinds of discussions in mixed spaces because if feminists hope to have any impact they're going to have to learn to confront men at some point, and men who are far more hostile and unwilling to listen that the ones they would encounter at an event openly billing itself as feminist.
There are a few situations in which it makes sense to create woman-only spaces - support groups for rape victims are an obvious one - but I don't think the attempt to make ALL feminist groups women-only is productive in the long run.
