I really think, knock on wood, so many of you reading this might have 40 full, big years. Think back to when you were 10. From that moment until right now. You have all that life on the backend and people are trying to wind down and figure out how they’re going to slow it down or wrap it up. Fuck wrapping it up. Start it up! You’re just 50!
Professional male feminists absolutely must focus on the big pictures of equality in pay, opportunity, and conduct. But we should also always be looking to do more, and living with the fear that we’re probably still making mistakes without realizing it. Ask women you work with for insight, but remember it’s not their responsibility to teach you everything. If you’re not sure what more you can do as a feminist, maybe question anything that feels too easy and natural — and start doing things that are not so easy.
