1. To be a male feminist is to be open and vulnerable.

2. To be a male feminist is to challenge the stereotypes of masculinity.

3. To be a male feminist is to strive for the betterment and well-being of all sexes and genders.

4. To be a male feminist is to stand up to the wrong-doings of your fellow human.

5. To be a male feminist is to stand by your fellow human when they face an injustice.

6. To be a male feminist is to celebrate the accomplishments, individuality, strength, and ingenuity of all humans.

7. To be a male feminist is to know when you are hogging the spotlight and need to step back to ensure that everyone can be heard.

8. To be a male feminist is to see life through an intersectional lens.

9. To be a male feminist is to be a feminist.
