6. I think he has a point...
our minority brothers and our gay brothers are needed in the movement since many of them do experience a lot of discrimination of the type we are fighting against. Our movement is about equality for all.

Not too long ago, the feminist movement excluded lesbians and even today transexuals are often made to feel unwelcome--that is wrong. I do agree with you about Patriarchy being the problem but most interpret a fight against patriarchy to be a fight for matriarchy and that is where we lose support.

Hope I made sense.
