There is so much awesome feminist writing online; taking it all in could be a full-time job. It’s always saddened me, though, that the vast majority of feminist-friendly content is written by women. Of course, I think women should be at the forefront of the women’s liberation movement, but I’d love to see more men jump in the ring to smash patriarchy.
So I’m delighted that pro-feminist men’s site XY Online has recently relaunched. I admire this endeavor because it’s not an attempt to take charge on “women’s issues.” Instead, the writers implore men to think about the construct of masculinity and they ways in which sexism negatively impacts both men and women. XY, “inspires men to develop respectful, trusting, and egalitarian relations with women, to promote equitable and liberatory ways of living and being, and to join with women in projects of gender equality and social justice,” in the words of founder Dr. Michael Flood.
Good stuff. Leave links to your own recommendations if you’ve got ‘em!
