When men call themselves "feminist," it serves as a disclaimer that keeps them (and other people) from scrutinizing these men's actions and attitudes.

It can work that way for women, too, but women are socialized to question themselves (not a bad thing), and people of both sexes are super-eager to criticize and condemn women.

People are only too willing to give men credit with nothing to back it up, so a man claiming to be a feminist is a man claiming his male supremacy.
