This is the response to my own post, rather than anything that has happened of late.
I just wanted to add on the clause that; when I am writing a fun article, I am in no way including misogynists who lie about being a feminist just to get into your pants, and possibly manipulate you in the name of feminism. There are many articles about this, so it seems to be a thing. I’ve never met a smooth talking faux, but I suppose looking out for the warning signs of manipulation in any relationship is always a healthy way to go.
So, if anyone is claiming feminist status, but does things like slap you on the butt and ask for a sandwich, then probably best to steer clear! Likewise, if a guy doesn’t explicitly say he is a feminist, but he does agree that equality for all is best and can empathise with the inequality you have experienced…
