Language of dude feminism

Today I read a post about the language used in a few campaigns aimed at ending violence against women by flattering stereotypical male strengths. Language is so important in equality campaigns, from language reclamation (such as ‘slut’ which featured in the media from the Slut Walks a few years ago) and how you discuss topics (for example I did a study at university about different groups of people’s awareness of acceptable terms to refer to people with disabilities). I won’t ramble about it here today, but I think it’s a good post if you’re interested in language used in what the writer called ‘dude feminism’.
