Caitlin Moran told The Metro, last Thursday, that:
I’m wary of people saying men can’t talk about feminism, but what would be useful is if men used feminism to talk about the problems for men, rather than the problems for women. When I wrote [How to be a Woman], I knew no-one had explained feminism in a way that made it just seem what it is, which is something that allows you to be more joyous, to understand the world and yourself more.”
There are gender presumptions that make men’s lives difficult and men have never had a revolution where they talk about what it means to be a man. ‘I say, come and join us in our fabulous futurist utopia where we talk about what we want to be, rather than what we’re supposed to be.”
And if that statement honestly represented feminism, I’d be pro-feminist (at least) – but readers of this blog will know that feminist lobbying is consistently in the direction of female privilege (aka male disadvantage).
