Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt Considers Himself a Feminist
Recently during an interview with The Daily Beast, Don Jon actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt explained why he’s a proud feminist.
“What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are — you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever. However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique,” the “Sin City: A Dam to Kill For” actor told the Daily Beast. “So yes, I’d absolutely call myself a feminist.”
Male feminists are an important part of the movement, because it clears up the pre-conceived notion that feminism is a hatred for men. The idea of a public figure putting aside stigmas to stand up for what is right is worthy of applause.
