    but it is tricky ground, yes. I think that there is a vast difference between having a personal space that is built around people with whom you share an identity -- a group of friends, say, with whom you can discuss particular things -- and the kind of more formalized organizing space I'm thinking of (women's festivals, LGBT bookstores, trans-retreats).

    I also think that seperating ourselves off from each other, beyond what we need for organizing and support, is a mistake. While the social concerns of women tend to be ignored by the mainstream, for example, I don't think the personal concerns of individual men and women are really all that different, and I think we'd all be a lot better off if we didn't treat each other as different species in that regard.
