Why I Am a Male Feminist: Article From The Root.Com

"Feminists did not hate men. In fact, they loved men. But just as my father had silenced my mother during their arguments to avoid hearing her gripes, men silenced feminists by belittling them in order to dodge hearing the truth about who we are."  Byron Hurt

Growing Pains of a Male Feminist


"No matter how unjust or reprehensible, what we are introduced to as children seems the natural order of things, since it existed long before we did and is firmly established. We are then socialized into certain patterns of thinking. Sexism is such a pervasive part of our culture that we absorb it simply by growing up. Even those among us who wish to see it eradicated are still products of that sexism, and as such are prone to replicate it without thinking."     Mychal Denzel Smith
