I’m convinced that the best test of a man’s feminism is not how he treats the women he already respects and loves: his girlfriend or wife, his sister, his mom. It’s about how he treats the women he doesn’t know, or has been trained not to respect: Hillary Clinton, sex workers, migrant laborers. His feminism, if it’s more than skin deep, will also impact how he interacts with men. I’ve always insisted that the “acid test” for male feminists is whether they live out their feminism when they are alone with other men, with no women around.
