This is why equality is a useless term. Feminism was supposed to be about women’s liberation from patriarchal dominance and male violence. It wasn’t about equality, it was about freedom from the hierarchy that keeps us the objects of male entitlement.

Men as a class have all the power. They can fix whatever ‘equality’ problems they have. They have every opportunity and all the power to fix themselves. ‘Gender equality’ needs redefined back to what it was always intended to be about -liberating women, and NOTHING about men.

I'll team up with men on the basis of class when they're willing to actually take on doing something about the class-based issues that disadvantage them (too), but that issue seems to always be a bit of an afterthought when it comes to social justice issues, not a lot of billionaires making a big show of donating money to address that one and put it in the spotlight, wonder what the reason could possibly be for their oversight?

Also, who am I kidding, targeting class as an issue would mean these dudes would have to shift the target of their blame from women/feminists to wealthy, powerful men.
