In September of 2014, author Chuck Wendig wrote a great post about his choice to embrace the label “Feminist”, even though he had been struggling with it because even though he supported the cause, as a white male, he didn’t think he’d earned the right to call himself anything more than an ally.
I found myself nodding and agreeing with his post when I first read it. I want to share a link to it here in solidarity with the idea that yes, I am a Feminist. I’m a cis white guy, and I still screw up and let my male privilege get in the way of my efforts, and I’ll always need to manage that. But I am a Feminist.
