Real Men Burn Their Jockstraps in Support of Women!

Or maybe they don’t. It’s their choice really. They can have a cup of tea and a lie down if they prefer.

Okay, so I’m not a feminist, but this doesn’t excuse me from showing support to my sisters out there. They’re speaking up, and it’s been a long time coming, so I’m-a-gonna turn my hearing aid on and have me a listen. Might learn something.

By the by, my latest Crumbcast is a babble about the thorny issue of feminism as a label. Yes, I know… I’m a fool. Be gentle?

  1. I thank you too for being such a faithful reader of my humble blog. I actually write for myself in the first place, it is an inner need, therapy to me. But if someone else reads any of my posts sometimes I really appreciate that. πŸ˜‹

      1. Men can be feminists in fact without men who supported women’s rights women would never have got the vote or equality under the law. I heard something on the radio today that men had to be prepared to lose in order for women to achieve equality and that in most parts of the world men didn’t want to lose. They also said white people had to lose in order for black people to gain equality. What do you think of that theory?

        1. I think it’s true. We men must be prepared to let go of our privilege in order for women to gain parity. And I can understand men’s fear in doing this but it really doesn’t have to be so awful. It really doesn’t. It’s merely a means to bringing about a fairer and more equitable society, that’s all. And I hope men listen to the feminists and take a few notes. We have a lot to learn in order to be a useful part of the solution.

  2. Couldn’t agree more with your words. It is a pity that the word feminism has been perverted by fake feminists, sheer power seekers. Sadly enough all human relationships are about power. It is so damn difficult to maintain relationships based on equality starting with your partner, close friendships and relatives, and then expanding this to the workplace where there is so much power abuse. I swear I am trying this all the time. And I definitely call myself a feminist, what is more, I think everybody should as well. Feminism is nothing other than fighting for equal rights, opportunities and duties in society, obviously regarding biological differences among women, trans and men. I do not want a matriarchy either because, like you, I do not believe in any gender’s supremacy as I do not believe in any race, class or religion supremacy either. These are all excuses for a powerful minority to abuse on others. And that is why I do hate capitalism because it destroys human relationships at all levels. We urgently need to move on toward a fairer system starting by acting locally.
