The Pitfalls of Becoming a Complacent Ally (And What to Do If You’ve Made a Mistake) We’ve all had that moment: Just when we think we’ve become good allies, somebody tells us that we’ve done or said something problematic.
Our first reaction might be to deny it. After all, we’ve read the articles. We’ve gone to the conferences. We know all about privilege and oppression, and we’re committed to fighting the latter. How could we do anything wrong? However, being an ally doesn’t mean that you can do no wrong.

For example, Republicans have gone full Jihad on women’s reproductive rights and Men’s Rights Activism, that collection of very angry misogynists, has become a “thing.” Clearly, there are a great many unbelievably immature and insecure men that feel threatened by women.

Womanism is a social theory deeply rooted in the racial and gender oppression of black women. There are varying interpretations on what the term womanist means and efforts to provide a concise and all encompassing definition have only been marginally successful. The ambiguity within the theory allows for its continuous expansion of its basic tenets. At its core, womanism is a social change perspective based upon the everyday problems and experiences of black women and other women of minority demographics, but more broadly seeks methods to eradicate inequalities not just for black women, but for all people. The self-authored spirit of activism, spirituality, and the women's relationship with herself, other women, and her surroundings comprise an essential part of the ideology.
The term womanism was first coined by author Alice Walker in her 1979 short story, "Coming Apart". The Dark Psychology of the Sexist Internet Commenter. A new study has found that men and women comment on news stories very differently—and that men don't feel shy about expressing misogyny.

There were nutritionists, doctor visits, numerous diet plans, even Weight Watchers, and I hated every moment of it.
