Hugo Schwyzer on Being a Pro-Feminist Man

I saw this post on Hugo Schwyzer’s blog today and I was particularly struck by this part (emphasis mine):

I stand with my feminist allies who push men hard to change. I’m a pro-feminist because I want to see the men in my life become better lovers, husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers. I’m a pro-feminist because I refuse to believe that men are biologically oriented towards domination, violence, and poor parenting skills. I’m a pro-feminist because I believe that both men and women benefit from a society where gender roles are less rigid and more fluid, and where both men and women have access both to political and economic power as well as the opportunity to nurture the vulnerable. But I’m also a pro-feminist man because I love men.

All I have to say is right on, Hugo, right on.
