I still don’t see the issue as men identifying as feminists if they do support feminist ideas and spread awareness about these issues. I get that men don’t have the direct experience that women do in this matter, but our support should matter nonetheless.
If they call out sexism, and enlighten people on feminist problems within society, then why not call yourself a feminist? Unless men actually act against this misogynist society a lot of these feminist problems are never going to get fixed.
I think these issues matter a lot, and whether or not the feminist communities will allow me to identify as such I’ll continue to support women and bring awareness to these societal problems.
The asker’s point makes no sense to me.
PoC are not an idea, they’re people defined by non-white racial identity. An idea would be civil rights for PoC and white people could be a civil rights activists because they held to that idea. But of course that wouldn’t make them a PoC.
And the LGBT+ community is also not an idea, it’s people defined by their sexual or gender identity or sexual orientation. Likewise, an actual idea is that their should be marriage equality and civil rights for LGBT+ people and a stragiht/cis/non-intersex person could be an advocate of these things but that wouldn’t make them part of the LGBT+ community.
But Feminism IS an idea, ”the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men,” and feminists are people who are advocates of that idea. Women is the category of people that feminism is focused on and so while being a feminist does not make a man a WOMAN, there is no reason a man can not be a feminist.
Messy colection of mess.
I have lives in Tromsø fore 7 years now but I go see my parents in Kristiansand tow times a year. In the sumer I take my sister ore dad to the zoo there. I partly grow up there, sins dad and my sister was there every day in the sumer months. I was tow when we moved there and I had a season card for 7 years. Me and my sister know more about the park then some of the workers there. We can pet all the birds, know the names of the wolfs, I could (when they still had) pet the angry ram and we know every song they played.
Some times I remember that I like taking photos, but maby some one wants to see them to.
