In the ongoing modern day conversations about misogyny and sexism, we more often hear about predatory behavior directed at women by men. However, men have an important role to play to in ending discriminatory and harassing behavior, and many are stepping up.

On Saturday, @emrazz asked men on Twitter to name an occasion in which they stood up to other men in their lives who exhibited misogynistic behavior.

Some men need reminders that catcalling is predatory.

There was this man who understood the ways transphobia and misogyny interact to create the monster that is transmisogyny.

This man understood that sometimes talking through a behavior is helpful.

Unfortunately this behavior isn't unique to a certain kind of man or profession.
