Just recently, I had been discussing with one of my male friends about feminist men. As soon as I mentioned the word "feminist", his face turned into a frown. I immediately was shocked. Why was he so upset about feminism and men together? After asking him what was up, he told me that he thought feminists was a term only used for women. Digging deeper into what he meant, I found that he and a lot of other guys are actually feminist. They were just too afraid to question and move away from the traditional masculine man. What they believed and their values aligned with what feminism was, but they didn't know how to move forward from those views.
After having this discussion, I began to think about what feminism in men should look like. What makes a good male feminist? Is there certain qualities that make a good male feminist? I think this article breaks down the small ways in which feminism can be embraced by men. What are some other ideas you might have?
