If feminism was anti-racism…

  • The most prominent feminist activist would be male feminist, not a female feminist.
  • Male feminists would speak to the media on behalf of women, and about what women need from men to achieve equality.
  • There would be a Critical Masculinity Studies in which serious male scholars turned the focus from femininity to centre on masculinity and what it means. Some male feminists would focus on masculinity to try to “find” themselves.
  • Many male feminists would believe that the goal of feminism is to maintain amicable gender relations and avoid social upheaval.
  • Some male feminists would consider themselves the objective moderator between men and women, because they are both men and feminists. They would attempt to generalize, “translate”, and “interpret” the writings of some women about gender relations to make it digestible for men.

    so true, though I’d argue that this does actually happen:

    Wow, you’re right. I had thought Men’s Studies was theoretical.
