I stumbled upon this blog this afternoon
(sorry I don't know how to do a proper link)

http://www.bodyforwife.com/feminism-and-the-men-who-refuse-to-understand/

I found it a welcome respite from what is often written / said by men and women about feminism these days

Thanks.

Great read. Very useful. Eg DH thinks that men are discriminated against when women ask for women only spaces in order to feel safe/comfortable. His argument is that he is a man. He isn't violent/sexist. Therefore he is being discriminated against.

I'm going to look up Body for Wifeon fb now.

I have been reading a few posts on the blog over the past few days, I really like it!

His posts on nutrition are also excellent

His argument is that he is a man. He isn't violent/sexist. Therefore he is being discriminated against.

I wonder how he'd expect women and girls who for a variety of reasons may want or need women only spaces to know he was no threat? Why is he so concerned with not being able to access women only spaces? My father is neither violent nor sexist but thankfully understands.
