"Discussions between women about issues are sometimes interrupted by men who want to have issues broken down and explained from the beginning, which can derail the conversation."

Shouldn't that be 'discussions between feminists' and 'interrupted by non-feminists' respectively? Or are all women knowledgeable about feminism (or only men not so)?

That said, your definition of a feminist seems to be based mainly on intent, so maybe 'member' and 'newbie' would be more suitable, but I think it important to clarify if these roles can be played by either sex. 83.100.173.30 18:10, September 13, 2010 (UTC)CH

Probably somewhere in between. It's not just feminists and non-feminists, although it sometimes can be: it's most often feminists-who-are-women and non-feminists-who-are-men. It's not only a function of newbie-ness, it's a function of privilege: men feel more entitled to say "I haven't seen this, so I am going to assume it's not true until you prove it!"

Transmen issue? Edit

The basic definitions should accommodate transmen too, because they face the problems of gender discrimination and sexism faced by women at least in their early stages of transition.

Transwoman are all women and so feminism includes transwomen by default.

So should not 'women' be replaced by 'women and gender diverse people'?

Transmen are not women.

The Obligation to KnowEdit

Joseph Reagle mentions Feminism 101 in his article The Obligation to Know: From FAQ to Feminism 101. It would be good to put this link in the article, with an explanation. For feminists who aren't computer geeks themselves, it is not immediately obvious that Geek Culture places considerable importance on doing your own independent research and reading up on new topics. --Kuilix (talk) 16:26, February 15, 2015 (UTC)
