Pro-Feminist Men's Mentors

My regular "link-person", Hugo Schwyzer, has a response to the post I made last week at Dark Daughta. Here Hugo makes a great case for the need for pro-feminist men to have male pro-feminist men as mentors, while at the same time having feminist women helping to guide one's way. In particular, I like that Hugo is drawing a distinction between having women "mother" a man, and the need for anyone who is looking to be an ally and to confront their own privileged behavior to be "gently" challenged.
