Posted at Feministe: Wackaloon Male Feminist Sex Criminal

Here is a taste of my first substantive post at Feministe:

[W]hat the fuck is up with men calling themselves feminists?

I don’t call myself a feminist, because it’s not my call whether I am or not. It’s women’s call. I try not to be a fucking misogynist asshole and do what I can to reduce gender inequity in my professional and personal life, which includes trying to call out myself and other men on misogynist shit.

Please go check the rest of it out.

    Dear PP, I just read that post and all the comments, 59 and counting. You are my hero. Of course the line that made me laugh out loud was when you said “Why the fuck should I do that?” You remember our exchange a couple weeks ago about the Big Lebowski. But the thing I was most impressed with was your ability to rephrase your initial position about men calling themselves feminists in the face of such an onslaught. Just fantastic! Bravo.

    I feel like your point made sense, and it’s weird to me that people took it the way they did, and then the whole cursing controversy…oy.
