skull&bones

As a trans man I call myself a feminist ally b/c i'm not a woman and do not belong in their spaces. I'm also always kinda skeeved when a dude refuses to call himself a feminist ally at a woman's request like...what other desires is he gonna ignore if he can't even do something that small.

Right, like I’ve said before, I consider it a sort of litmus test.  If a guy wants to be included in the feminist movement but throws a tantrum at the thought of being a called “feminist ally” rather than a “feminist”, he is making it clear that his priorities have always been about himself and the titles he gets to claim more than actually BEING a good, compassionate, altruistic feminist man.
