My friend thinks it’s weird that I care about men’s rights (specifically, the right not to be unnecessarily circumcised at birth) and I’m a woman.

I wonder if she also thinks it’s weird when men advocate for women’s rights (the right not to get raped, or the right to have access to contraception, for example).

We’re allowed to care about things we haven’t directly experienced. If we weren’t, the world would be a much slower-progressing place. I, for one, am glad that people from other genders have historically taken an interest in issues that directly affect only my gender.

(Besides which: issues of consent, regardless of which gender they affect, impact us all. If one group’s consent is not respected, all other groups must risk and fear the same treatment.)
