Yes, You Can Be Sexist Even If You're a Gay Man

You Can Be Sexist Even If You're A Gay Man

While being gay may make certain men more attuned to discrimination, it doesn't make them immune to perpetuating it, according to Mic's Gabe Gonzalez.

Watch Gonzalez drop some knowledge on the many ways gay men may need to check themselves when it comes to misogynistic behavior. 

"Remember that being a gay man doesn't mean that you get to touch women without consent," Gonzalez said. He explained that he's been invited to men-only events, which "sucks, because if identifying as LGBTQ means existing outside the bounds of conventional gender expression, reinforcing those divisions based on rigid gender binary is pretty fucking heteronormative."

The good news is, it's possible to change things up. Many men may not realize they are even participating in these types of behaviors and may adore the women in their lives enough to make some positive adjustments.
