I have written extensively about male feminists and the ironic rejection they face within the feminist movement. While many female feminists say that they want men to support feminism, plenty of other feminists will scourge male feminists for simply being male. Even the thing one would expect a member of a group to do — promote the movement — is often seen as male feminists trying to “hijack” feminism from women.
While I have previously noted that with friends like these male feminists do not need enemies, it is also the case that in many instances female feminists’ fear of male feminists is warranted.
2017 showed numerous examples of male feminists behaving badly, often committing sexual assault, all while hiding behind the guise of the “good male ally.”
I could go through a list of them, however, Sargon of Akkad already do so. The list is extensive, yet nowhere near complete.
Please note that this is not to say that all or even most male feminists are sexual predators. This list only notes that one of the stereotypes about male feminists — that they are using the label to get close to women — turns out to have some merit.
