New category: male allies

Following on from the previous post, I have added the category of “male allies” to the side bar. This will be for posts quoting men who actually have a genuine understanding of feminism, a recognition of male privilege, and a real desire for change and progress.

Fake ‘male feminists’, who argue that feminism is about their dicks (or their prostates), and that it would be ‘benevolent sexism’ not to punch a woman’s teeth out when she says something he doesn’t like, can be found under “MRAs, Nice Guys(TM), and ‘male feminists’”.

I will be going back through the blog to add the category to old posts as appropriate.

  1. Yep they exist. Ben Barker is wonderful. He had a really terrible experience last year too, a close female friend was murdered by a stalker. So he knows this stuff up close and personal.

  2. Now all I need is a cookie. :)

  3. Don’t get ahead of yourself, you haven’t been tagged yet! :P

  4. Okay, but I expect cookies when it happens. ;P

  5. HOORAY! I got a cookie! This is the highest award that can be given to a male ally in times of peace.
