I’m Suspicious of Male “Feminists” — And You Should Be Too
Alicen Grey

I’m so glad I don’t feel any need to be validated by you. I support women, love women, care about women. I support all the broader goals of the feminist movement, and most of the niche goals as well. But I still won’t call myself a feminist. It’s because I don’t feel I have earned it. I don’t attend rallies, write passionate diatribes or donate massive amounts of cash. I’m just a passive supporter and casual internet commentor. But god forbid my self worth should depend on you blessing me as a “feminist”. I would never live up to your standards. And I don’t care. I am what I am.

I do want to commend you on your writings. You are edgy, and you are challenging ideas in ways that, although they may be dangerous to men’s egos, are nevertheless respectful to our intellect. I certainly don’t agree with everything you say, but I agree with a fair bit of it. Keep on with it sister. You are going to get a lot of pushback and grief, but you are saying things that need to be said.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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