As a male who has read several Radical Feminist blogs on this site but you are the first one that said men were free to follow and ask I am wondering: what do i do with all this information? how do i be an effective ally?
Don’t speak over women.
Listen and learn, believe women’s experiences are real, valid and important.
Work on yourself first. Unlearn misogyny & racism, learn how they, and other issues, intersect.
Call out men, it’s not your place to call women out.
Never stop learning, researching, keeping up to date with issues. Listen to what women are saying. There is a feminist perspective on almost everything. Follow lots of radfem blogs (if they are okay with men following) and listen to them.
Get involved in organisations/events that will help a cause, but know your place.
Uplift women’s voices when the issue effects women, uplift the voices of people of colour when the issues effect POC, etc.
Don’t stay silent when you see an oppressed person or group being mistreated. As someone in a place of privilege, you can make an impact. Even in feminist groups, people listen to my partner more than they listen to me, and give him more praise, because he’s male. You can do a lot of good because people will listen to you. A lot of that should be telling them to listen to what women are saying.
And lastly, understand that the title of feminist isn’t yours. I’m glad you used ‘ally’ instead, but just know that many women don’t consider men allies at all. I do if they have earned it. No sooner.
