Look, Kitten, I Am Too A Feminist! Fauxminism and Men

Good article by Megan Milanese on fauxminist men. It’s good and important food for thought for masculine-identified feminists/feminist men (like me.) Some of the criteria of fake feminist men she mentions (all points direct quotes): 

  • He interrupts women that he speaks with
  • He expects to be given leadership roles far before he’s ready for them
  • He mansplains
  • He insists that feminism must make equal time for men and men’s issues
  • He continues to partake in media or activities that objectify/degrade women
  • He calls women he doesn’t agree with “bitches”, “whores” or other gender-based slurs
  • He feels entitled to the  trust of the women he works with in feminist activism circles
  • He will not hold other self-proclained male-identified feminists accountable
  • He uses the tone argument on you
  • He is pissed off by this article
