    Ironic that this is posted by a men and discussed by mainly men made me think of this post. http://thehardtimes.net/2015/07/27/this-is-an-all-inclusive-space-says-all-white-all-male-audience/

    Back on topic: I think the initiative is great, although stating that having only a men's shirts perpetuates the idea that men are at a higher natural advantage, goes a bit far. I think it has more to do with supply and demand.

      Almost: the cause is supply and demand, the effect is perpetuating a male advantage. This then creates a closed loop that excludes non-males.

      The "we're men, so we should stay out of feminism." argument is part of the reason why gender equality is still a problem.

        No, but as a woman I can tell you that men fighting for us women is a problem. We don't need you to save us from oppression. Your only role in the feminist cause is to not oppress women. We'll take care of the rest.

      The hope is that the more men in this male-dominated community push for inclusion, the more other genders will feel welcome :)
