As a man who doesn’t consider himself a feminist but, perhaps, a masculinist (if there is such a thing) I believe in equal rights and legal protection for all. People should not be denied things simply because of gender. As a liberal, I think that a true feminist should believe that women should be treated as well and fairly under law as men but not better.
The women’s movement or feminist movement of the 1960s and 70s wasn’t about world domination for women and subjugation of masculinity as the far-left seems to think today. It was about women having the same rights and protections under the law as men and being judged for their personal qualifications and whatever they are seeking in life, without regard to their gender.
I don’t want women being treated worse by society than men but I don’t believe that they should enjoy a gender-based advantage either. We each represent about half of America and need to live and work together for the betterment of our country.
