    19 Reasons Every Man Should Be A Feminist

    Equality always takes two.

    1. Because you wouldn't like it if a woman you loved got catcalled.

    2. And objectification is never OK, regardless of sex.

    3. Because you can still be a man and support equality.

    4. Because gender stereotypes also hurt men.

    5. Because women are still woefully underrepresented in public office.

    6. Because men can be an integral part of the push for feminism.

    7. Because women can run a company just as well as men.

    8. Because we can all benefit from more women in male-dominated science fields.

    9. Because chivalry is about politeness and respect, not subjugation.

    10. Because patriarchy affects both sexes.

    11. Because when the roles are reversed you can see how ridiculously women are portrayed in commercials...

    12. ... Music videos...

    13. ... And in print media.

    14. Because men can be the victims of physical abuse as well.

    15. Because pay should be based on merit not gender.
