When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist.

There…

While that’s true, again, it’s not an issue of sexism. No man I know who has ever addressed sexism in middle eastern governments has ever addressed sexism in our own. News flash, many middle eastern governments have had female leaders; ours has not. It does not matter what is “easier” to change. When you truly care about an issue, you don’t look for the “easiest” part to change, you look to change all of it. You accept none of it. You can’t pick to only look at the “easily fixable” parts of sexism and call yourself a feminist. In fact, as a feminist one would pursue a solution to the more pressing problem rather than the easiest one. No, no true feminist would treat the issue this way. In fact, I would argue that this approach is not only racist, but in fact sexist as well. Any white man who calls out sexism in a “distant” culture but refuses to acknowledge his own (and there will be some on his end, to be sure, it is inevitable) not only fails to solve the problem, but rather makes it worse; it only plays into the “not all men are like that” game of self-assurance that most men play to avoid having to look at their own errors.

Even THAT aside, I accept no apologetics for racism. Ever. The fact itself that you have to defend your point by finding hypothetical situations and/or loopholes tells me that the point is flawed. Furthermore, if POC tell you something is racist, it is racist and you as a white male have no right to say otherwise.
