The most radical, revolutionary gender practice ever

If you really want to play with gender, particularly if you’re male, then the best way to do that – the most radical, revolutionary, genuinely non-masculine conforming thing you can do – has nothing to do with your dress or your hair or your makeup or your choice of pronouns.

As a male person, the most gender non-conforming thing you can do is to stop making demands of women – of their time, of their resources, of their domestic, emotional and sexual labour. You can stop calling your mother cis scum, and start helping her with the domestic chores. You can stop asking what feminism can do for you, and start asking what you can do to make the world a little more amenable to women.”

  1. And if you think you’re a woman, I might be a little more inclined to believe you if you do the laundry, the ironing, the cooking, the cleaning, the childcare, the pet care, the errands, then go volunteer your time visiting old people at the nursing home or cleaning cages at the animal shelter.
