A white person who stands against racial injustice cannot call themselves “black.” A straight person who allies with LGBT people wouldn’t say they are “LGBT.” Likewise, I do not believe that men can suddenly take on and understand fully the issues that women face.
Men Can’t Be Feminists

See this is where language and words have meaning and are important. Being a feminist is a social construct and is not the same thing as saying you are a woman.

Equating feminist to black or LGBT is an apples vs oranges thing, sure they are both adjectives but one is a physical adjective and the other is a philosophical adjective.

No one is born a feminist but people are born black, white, gay, female, etc.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
