10 Types of Misogynist Men We All Need to Know About – And Then Call Out! - Everyday Feminism
Questions to Ask Yourself on Your Way to Allyship

As an act of solidarity here is a list of questions you can ask yourselves and each other when navigating that precarious ledge called allyship:

When venting to a close female or gender non-conforming friend, ask yourself, “Am I willing to reciprocate the same emotional labor that’s being offered to me right now?”

When in multi-gender company ask yourself, “Am I talking out of turn?” “Am I dominating the conversation?” “Am I feeling a need to be the know-it-all at the table?” “Do I actually know what I’m talking about or am I bullshitting so as not to compromise my masculinity?”

When in need of emotional support ask yourself, “Who are the men in my life I might be able to seek support from?”

After a breakup with a female or gender non-conforming partner, ask yourself, “Am I taking up a ton of space with my reaction? Am I relying on her/zir/them to caretake me through it?

When someone confronts you about displaying misogynistic behaviors, ask yourself, “Am I actually listening to what they have to say?” “Even though I’m feeling defensive, am I still being self reflective?” “Am I derailing the conversation and making it about my hurt feelings?”

Be humble and ask yourself, “Do I make a concerted effort to learn from my female and gender non-conforming friends about what sexism/ misogyny feel like first hand?

Always check in with yourself: “Have I been asked for assistance with a task someone near me is working on, or am I offering unasked for advice?”

Listen, guys. We see you.

Dismantling patriarchy is hard work, but you’re well on your way to becoming the feminists we need you to be!

An Open Letter to Those Praising the New York Times “Tomboy” Piece
Trans youth are dying because society is telling them, telling us, that we are fake. Trans women and femmes of color are being murdered because the impulse is to believe that trans-ness is fraudulent, that our bodies are threats. A white young person being asked questions about her gender is not a new problem and it is not a problem that should be blamed on trans people or trans affirmative shifts in society or medicine.
Midway through the piece, the author offers the most incoherent part of her argument explaining of her child, “She is not gender nonconforming. She is gender role nonconforming.” What does this mean? What is the difference?

Princeton researchers discover why AI become racist and sexist | Ars Technica
n a recent paper for Science about their work, the researchers say the implications are far-reaching. "Our findings are also sure to contribute to the debate concerning the Sapir Whorf hypothesis," they write. "Our work suggests that behavior can be driven by cultural history embedded in a term’s historic use. Such histories can evidently vary between languages." If you watched the movie Arrival, you've probably heard of Sapir Whorf—it's the hypothesis that language shapes consciousness. Now we have an algorithm that suggests this may be true, at least when it comes to stereotypes.

5 Things That Don't Seem Like Mansplaining But Are, Because Playing Devil's Advocate Doesn't Enlighten Anyone
By now, you may have heard the term mansplaining — explaining things as a man to a woman with the incorrect assumption that she doesn't understand — and heard of it in its most common forms. But some things that don't seem like mansplaining, but are, may have escaped your attention. Mansplaining, after all, is part of a set of cultural assumptions that place men's opinions above women's, and these assumptions are everywhere.

Title Fight: Quinnipiac has conquered women's rugby despite its own administration
The hard and troublesome truth of this issue, though, is that female athletes are not asking for much. They want a place to practice free of rocks and potholes, a space large enough to run plays and host games. They want adequate resources like locker rooms that have sufficient space for teams and enough trainers to monitor their health. Often, they are simply requesting that their athletic departments and university administrators care about them and the sports they play — and show it.

Cook, who loves rugby and has given four years of her life to playing the sport for Quinnipiac, gets to the heart of this issue:

“I want [the administration] to be involved in the growth of our program. They’re so disaffiliated from all things rugby that it’s no wonder our student body doesn’t support us. You don’t even talk to us or know what we’re doing.”
