No, conservative men aren’t uniformly non-sexist (or whatever a better word is.)
But this is barely satire:
Many women in the Portland arts scene echoed Mendoza’s sentiments.
“One time, [Fanning] offered to walk my friend Jill to her car — literally 35 feet away — at 2 p.m. to ‘ensure her comfort.’ And she was only leaving the space in the first place because he cornered her to explain what ‘gender binary’ means,” said local musician Brianna Senter. “His Bumble profile is just a series of Lindy West quotes. It’s cool to engage, I guess, but I’m suspect of any man who starts and then dominates conversations about feminism. $100 says he has a collection of bras he stole from unsuspecting roommates.”
Fanning’s latest critics also question why a man so understanding of the women’s liberation movement would want to be part of, much less run, a women’s art collective.
