Dear Men: Please mansplain amongst yourselves, I’ll give you a topic

Dear Men:

I am worn out explaining white privilege, male privilege, and other systems of oppression to some of you. Do you identify as both a man and a feminist? Can you help me out?

Step One:
Read this brief primer on intersectional feminism

Step Two:
When your peers are saying stupid shit, don’t wait for a woman to try to patiently educate them with round after round of Facebook comments or tweets. Step in and educate your fellow men.
1.) It’s not our job to educate you; we already do way more than our fair share of unpaid emotional work
2.) We need the time and energy to organize
3.) Sadly, many of your male peers will actually listen to the same message if they hear it from another man

Thanks in advance!
