To conduct oneself as feminist would require living with both feminism’s potentials and limits. As a feminist and a jurisprudent, I am responsible for the feminisms I ally with and the laws that I align with, take on an ethical obligation to care for them and account for their failures, and take responsibility for my inheritances and futures. In thinking with the ideas of failures, futures, and inheritances, my reflections as a male feminist jurisprudent in this essay take the form of a jurisdictional auto-critique about feminism’s relationship with the law, which by extension is a comment on my relationship with both law and feminism.
