Ask a Feminist | Q. 7 Why should Indian men join the feminist movement? / by Tara Kaushal

March 2018: I answer questions that are burning your bras and run this column as a makeshift guide to the feminist way of life.

 Why should Indian men join the feminist movement?

"Here, one could extoll the advantages of feminism for men, and there are many. But advantages to the men are somewhat irrelevant. We should not have to bait men with possible benefits in order to draw them into the fold of feminism. Truth is, not being a feminist today is an unconscionable stand. You either don't see the historic privileges accorded to the male gender, or you don't think other genders deserve those privileges. Which makes you either stupid or an asshole... or both."
