It’s one of those days on which I don’t have a time to write a lengthy intro to this article, but if I did, it would have the word ‘intersectionality’ in it.
It’s called Gay Men’s Sexism and Women’s Bodies, it’s on the wonderful GoodMenProject.com, and it talks about some of the very common and oft unacknowledged ways that misogyny manifests in platonic relationships between women and gay men. (Homophobia shows up in these relationships as well, that just isn’t the subject of this particular article.)
I do have time to write this… Someone/something can be sexist/misogynist and not be based in sexual attraction or fit our conventional picture of what sexism or misogyny look and feel like.
Great article. Please read, discuss, & share.
