A silencing tactic used against male feminist [[allies]] commenting on sexist incidents is to point out that an ally is '''not a woman''' and thus can't identify sexism, or is patronising women by identifying sexism and thus presuming women are weak and need help and taking care of.
 
   
It is in fact possible for intending allies to be [[Condescension|condescending]] in their actions, but the mere fact of being male and speaking out against sexism is not automatically so.

I used to think
This tactic is sometimes part of a double bind, in which some defenders of an action do not accept criticism from women because the women are [[Not an insider|outsiders]], or [[You're being emotional|too emotional]], or similar, and others do not accept criticism from men, because they aren't women.
