a feminist son

What does a "feminist son" mean? <-----Question from original thread title added to post by moderator (Florentia52)----->

Does anybody find a definition for it? I googled it but I couldn't find one.

"Earlier this year, Melinda Gates told Time Magazine that when raising a feminist son, she often thinks back to how her own parents taught her that she could do anything her brothers could."

    She is raising her son to have an awareness of feminism.
    If she pulls that off, she will have a feminist son.

    I don't see anything on that page that describes a feminist as someone who behaves like a girl. Which definition are you looking at?

    Everyone can be a feminst.

    The welfare of 1/2 the human population is not only women’s business.

    Which is the point this mother is making. Raising sons to have heads full of stuff other than patriarchal stereotypes is her goal as a parent.
