“White knighting” is a pejorative term bigots use to undermine such actions from men who are using their voices for support, not for condemnation and misogyny. Bigots use it to claim men are supporting women in the hopes of sleeping with women. Because, apparently, that’s the only reason you would ever want to treat someone as a person.

"That’s just how men are."

If you’re a woman and you’re saying this, you’re enabling, reinforcing, and endorsing this behavior. And your stamp of approval will get trotted out as backup over and over again.

If you’re a man and you’re saying this, you’re throwing your entire gender under the bus for YOUR lack of ambition to be better than a stereotype, and admitting that you’re perfectly content with being seen as little more than an immature child.

I wonder if in ANY way this speaks to the problem someone in his position had. I can’t imagine Kumail’s the only person who was so stunned by him that he couldn’t say all the things he wanted to. I know when I had a conversation with him, we talked about things that had nothing to do with how much I loved him. Because that was the polite, respectful thing to do, of course. You don’t overwhelm a celebrity with inane blubbering about how much you love them. But I have to wonder… how many people in his world, how many people that he surrounded himself with, how many people whose opinions he respected, held back in the same way?

I imagine it wouldn’t have helped. Depression just isn’t that simple. It never is. But I can’t help but wonder anyway.
