The collectible card game Magic: The Gathering includes over 10,000 unique types of cards. But the backs on all those cards are exactly the same.

Feminism is really hard for dudes. Between second-wave and third-wave and post-feminism and men’s rights subreddits, we’re not sure when we’re being helpful and when we’re getting it wrong. Not Quite Feminist Phil is the sexist pseudo-feminist we’re afraid of becoming.
