A place for men - not afraid to call themselves feminists - to write from their heart to help educate men who may still hold some sexist attitudes towards women.

A place that women can link to when they are being harassed on the internet because sometimes men need to hear new ways of thinking about women...from men. Or just a place that women can go to when they need to know that men are on their side - they're just not always vocal about it. Hopefully this might make it cool to say, "I'm a guy and I hate misogyny."

A site that brings women and men together in the spirit of knowing that equality doesn't exclude anyone. And that the fight for other's equality is a fight for our own betterment.

Anyone man any race, sexual orientation/identity, religion or occupation can contribute an essay on the theme of gender discrimination in the lives of the women they know.

DEFINITION OF FEMINISM:
"The theory of the political, economic & social equality of the sexes."

43 Ways To Say, “That’s Sexist.”

Sometimes it can be awkward to call your friends out if they say something that makes you uncomfortable. Often they’re not being malicious, just thoughtless. But remember, your friends will only change their behavior if you speak up! Here are 43 ways of letting someone know he’s being sexist. Only you can know what’s right for your specific relationship and circumstance. Feel free to mix and match, or add your own!

  1. I don’t like those kinds of jokes.
  2. Dude, that’s pretty sexist.
  3. That actually makes me really uncomfortable.
  4. (later, in private:) Hey, I just wanted to let you know that what you said earlier really upset me.
  5. (later, in an email:) Hey, I didn’t want to get into a whole thing in front of everybody, but I was actually really upset by what you said, and here’s why: [YOUR REASONS HERE]
  6. Come on, you’re better than that.
  7. Wait, hold up, is it the 1950s? It isn’t, right? Seriously though, is it? No but seriously, is it? Is it actually the 1950s right now? I’m like 90 percent sure that it isn’t. It isn’t, right? It isn’t?
  8. Psh! Sexist!
  9. Don’t say that. That’s not funny.
  10. Hey, remember that time just now when you said something really sexist?
  11. You don’t really believe that, do you?
  12. What?! I can’t believe you just said that!!! That is SOOOO SEXIST!!!
  13. Seriously though, don’t say stuff like that around me.
  14. Just so you know, if you keep saying things like that, people are going to think you’re a sexist.
  15. (Frown and shake head disapprovingly.)
  16. That’s really weird that you think that’s an okay thing to say.
  17. Hey, are you LMFAO? Because THAT’S SEXIST AND YOU KNOW IT. (Then, do a little dance.)
  18. Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait. WHAT did you just say?
  19. Oh, I get it, you’re doing the whole “politically incorrect” thing. Cute.
  20. This is not your best look.
  21. Just FYI, your jokey “pretend sexism” sounds a lot like real sexism.
  22. Um, sexist much?
  23. Hey, knock knock. [Who’s there?] Ida. [Ida who?] Ida know why you think it’s okay to make sexist jokes in front of me.
  24. Wow, that’s awkward.
  25. I’m seriously going to stop being your friend if you keep saying things like that.
  26. You know what you just said objectifies women, right?
  27. I don’t get it. Can you explain what you meant by that? No, I don’t understand. Talk me through it step by step. How did you reach those conclusions?
  28. Sharp social satire, friend! Not tired and offensive at all!
  29. Gross.
  30. Wow, that is some OLD SCHOOL sexism!
  31. I’m just kind of over that whole ironic post-sexism sexism thing, you know?
  32. Uh oh, you might be sexist! Quick, say something progressive! Five! Four! Three! Two! One! Oh no, too late, you’re a sexist!
  33. That’s a great impression of something a misogynist would say!
  34. I’m sorry, but I can’t pretend that’s not sexist.
  35. Whoa, weird. A sexist thing just happened.
  36. Boo! Boooooo! Booooooooooo!
  37. Do you hear yourself?
  38. Could you just try to not say stuff like that when I’m around? It really bothers me.
  39. Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy. But you’re a horribly misogynist. So call me never.
  40. I was totally with you until that last part when you got kind of sexist all of a sudden.
  41. Why would you say something like that?
  42. Stop. I can’t even deal with your sexism right now.
  43. Ugh, enough.
