Typically used in reference to straight, cisgender, white, privileged men who self identify as progressive. Brogressives will likely never by affected by discrimination and often make insensitive jokes and write them off as not being true to their beliefs.

Brogressives love to talk about how wrong inequalities are but will never bother to do anything about it. In many cases brogressives are fuckboys that pay serves to their morals by discussing progressive ideas. They also live to act as if they know more about about any topic relating to politics or inequalities than anyone else in the room.
Less Brogressives are being elected as women and people of color started running for office more.
