17 Male TV Characters That Are Probably Feminists

at . Comments

In its simplest terms, feminism is about equality when it comes to gender. A deeper examination of the term also places a specific look into the way that minority groups are uplifted and given the same chance as white women and men.

Looking at the way TV explores the topic, many examples of a male character that could fit the term feminist is based on the relationships they share with those around them, specifically women, and the way they confront their privilege if they are a white male. 

Usually, these characters don't actually reference that they are feminists, but their view of equality allows for conversation to go there regardless. 

Here is a slideshow of male TV characters that are probably feminists, many of whom are men of color that obviously fit that example, and some white men as well that are aware of the privilege that they hold and that learn how to not let that dictate the way they view equality. 

1. Magnus Bane - Shadowhunters

Magnus Bane - Shadowhunters
Magnus Bane is many things, and supporting equality just happens to be one of them. This is an inspiring character that continues to represent nothing but love and appreciation, which means there is no doubt in anyone's mind that this includes feminism as well.

2. Bellamy Blake - The 100

Bellamy Blake - The 100
Bellamy's view of all the women in his life has been nothing but supportive and respectful. He is honestly in awe of just about all the women in his life, which is kind of the perfect way to frame a male lead, one that isn't always afforded to us. The 100, in general, does well with placing women in places of power without any question of gender, and Bellamy is the main example of the trust that continues to take place from that. He is also one of a few men that just happens to be in a well-developed partnership with a woman, allowing for a real sense of equality to shine through.

3. Garrett McNeill - Superstore

Garrett McNeill - Superstore
Garrett on all fronts is just a great character, so even though Jonah is the one that rightfully so announced that he was a feminist, Garrett deserves the shout out too. Who can forget the way he easily described how to handle a period to Jonah? It is an effortless conclusion to come to when a character seamlessly joins a conversation like that.

4. Ravi Chakrabarti - iZombie

Ravi Chakrabarti - iZombie
Ravi is a guy that shouldn't even be questioned when it comes to assuming he is a feminist. He doesn't have to say it for us to see it, especially in his relationship with Liv. But even outside of that, Ravi is obviously supporting and helping contribute to equality as opposed to anything else.

5. Alex Crawford - The Bold Type

Alex Crawford - The Bold Type
Alex works for a magazine that aims to promote feminism on a daily basis, so it should come as an absolute surprise to no one that this is a character that fits that label as well. Alex is a presence in Kat, Sutton, and Jane's lives as a voice that is on their side but that also isn't afraid to push them when they aren't aware that they need that themselves. Now if only we got even more of Alex because he is truly a presence to adore on The Bold Type.

6. Marcus Kane - The 100

Marcus Kane - The 100
Marcus has come a long way, which is why it is safe to say that he is now slipping very easily into this list. There were earlier moments where that couldn't always ring true, but if there is anything that Kane admires now it is powerful women that he supports without question. His treatment of the women around him has quickly become supportive, with any women in a position of power immediately having to prepare herself for Kane wanting to befriend her.
