Reading: A great piece on XY Online

I’ve been reading this really good  Pro-feminist FAQ from XY Online, which as I may have mentioned at some point, is a really good resource for stuff on masculinity. This article just hits so many nails on so many heads. So, give it a read, share it amongst your friends, and hold it close to your heart.

    Thanks for your thoughts on my ‘Pro-feminist FAQ’. And apologies for the terrible formatting. I’ve now fixed and deleted the multiple copies of the piece. See http://www.xyonline.net/content/frequently-asked-questions-about-pro-feminist-men-and-pro-feminist-mens-politics for the revised one.
    Cheers,
