Straight people don’t get a pride parade. White people don’t join the Black Panthers. Men are not feminists.
your explanation for that last sentence is “feminism is a movement meant to liberate women first and foremost. men can be allies to feminism like straight people can be allies to the LGBTA movement. but men cannot be feminists like the A in LGBTA does not stand for allies.”
however, even though the liberation of women is the priority of feminism, feminism does also include men’s issues - whereas LGBTA communities do not include straight people, thereby making them allies and not actual members of the LGBTA community. men can be feminists.
Men can be allies to feminists. They cannot be feminists.
Women are a subordinate class. Men are an oppressor class, just like with race, white people can be allies against white supremacy but will still be part of the oppressor class.
It is really damned offensive that so many people are fighting to get men to be accepted as feminists.
How is it so hard to understand that feminism is first and foremost about women, and that men simply benefit a lot from the deconstruction of the patriarchy, among other things?
