International Women’s Day is as good a day as any to remind yourself that no matter what your beliefs on equality are, you’re not above failure
It’s important to remember that even as a man in full support of feminism, you aren’t exempt from being a guy and making stupid dumb guy decisions occasionally, and you should also never think you’re exempt from judgement because of it. Recently I severely hurt the feelings of someone who I admire as a person and as a friend, due to my own selfish personal choices. But I recognise and severely regret the tactless way I handled it, and all I can do at this point is say I’m sorry.
Today’s a good day to pay homage to some of your favourite female role models
and make jokes about misandry, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to reflect on yourself and the things you can do to be better. That’s what I’ll be doing.
