I am NOT a feminist!

I am however a supporter of equity feminism. As a man, I have never had to have a woman's experience of anything. I can't pretend to be something I don't understand. This was explained to me by an 82 year old 2nd wave feminist in Canada.
The argument goes, I can support women who fight for feminism, be there for them & even do what is even required to help if needed or even asked for. But the nuance is, I am still not a woman. And as a man living in a male dominant world, I would never have a woman's experience.
It's a very well constructed argument. And empowering to women, because a man is then not allowed to highjack a woman's own label of her own struggles for her equality in a world skewed in men's favor. #feminism
