If any man were to walk up to me and even start the sentence, “IMHO the best feminists are the ones that…” or if he (a man) were to begin to tell me (a woman) how women are empowered, I would immediately walk away. I wouldn’t even both to call it/him problematic, because the whole thing is just so far off base of anything resembling something worth paying mind to. It’s not worth your time. A man that does that, who says things like that has instantly proven a lack of basic respect.
How could he possibly understand what it means for all women, let alone any woman to be empowered? Are we one big think-tank to him? Is that so he can keep us under his foot while we’re being so radical and… building machines…?
Mind boggled, I am.
