Yes, I'm a man. And yes, I consider myself a feminist. Now, of course, by default I am talking about a particular kind of feminism. Indeed, there are some feminists who'd be offended at such a claim, some would see a man's claim to feminism as chauvinistic in itself, an arrogant presumption. I'm not talking about a sort of feminism which seeks to replace patriarchy with matriarchy. I'm talking about the kind of feminism which should be a no-brainer to readers of the bible (I realize the irony of that statement too, though however many apparently chauvinistic passages you may reference, the overarching and overwhelming message of scripture is about liberation, freedom from oppression, and human equality). I'm talking about courageously speaking out against the exploitative power-plays--in media, economics, religion, etc.--of men over women and advocating for the rights, the dignity, and the equality of women in the world and especially in the Body of Christ.
Even in this day and age, there are churches who won't ordain women into ministry, who won't allow women to teach, to preach, to lead and to fulfill their calling. It's actually mainstream in the church to teach chauvinistic gender roles, to marginalize the voices which challenge them, and to justify such behavior on the basis of scripture (no doubt a distorted interpretation thereof). In light of this, you don't need to be liberal or extreme in order to be a feminist. You can be very normal because the mainstream is extreme enough for itself. That which should be far from controversial, like suggesting that women should have the same opportunities as men in ministry, actually take a portion of courage to express in the evangelical world. As far as our culture has come, the church has been stunted in its growth when it comes to how we treat women.
A feminist is someone who refuses to see women as second to men... in any social, religious, spiritual, or economic category. It's someone who actually believes that God's image is male and female as the book of Genesis teaches. It's someone who agrees, in principal and in action, with the Apostle Paul when he says "There is neither... male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). A feminist is someone who looks for opportunities to empower women in word and deed and to affirm the equality of male and female without pigeonholing one or the other into rigidly distinct and hierarchical roles.
In this regard, there should be more men in the field of feminism--feminist theology, philosophy, and activism... Not because women are helpless (that would undermine my point here to say the least) but because equality and empowerment are part of the redeemed world and it's simply human, for men and for women, to be advocates and activists for healing, for restoration, and for justice. We should all be working to create opportunities for women to speak into the life of the church and society and we should ourselves be listening and learning.
