What Noah Berlatsky doesn't know about feminism

I tried to leave this at A Short History of Male Feminism - Noah Berlatsky - The Atlantic:
Only identitarian feminists wonder whether a man can be a feminist. After all, a man, the socialist Charles Fourier, coined the term "feminism" in 1837. Now, it may be valid to ask whether a man can be a bourgeois feminist....

I've been a feminist since the 1960s. I'm not going to stop now just because some people want to retcon what it means to be a feminist.
I couldn't leave it there because I got this message: "We are unable to post your comment because you have been blocked by The Atlantic." Berlatsky says it wasn't him, so it was probably another of their identitarian writers.
