Postfeminists: If women’s agency and the inherently problematic nature of the category ‘woman’ were acknowledged, men would be nicer somehow.
Queer Feminists: If men could express their femininity outside of the rigid gender binary, men would be nicer.
Radical Feminists: In a patriarchal system of structural oppression, men have a class interest that prevents recognition of women’s humanity. Piecemeal reform of patriarchal structures will not change male supremacy. Men as a class will not change unless they are forced to. Women must seize power and overthrow the sex-class system.
