Said taught postcolonial criticism and literature to American students
for years, and males have been doing feminist criticism for decades.
Masculinities is a growing field as well, and the combination of
masculinities and postcolonial studies is likewise growing.  If it's
of interest, see Lahoucine Ouzgane and Daniel Coleman's work from
several years back:

Edward Said, the founding father of this school, could legitimately claim that right, but not many espousing its values today are of that affiliation, from what I can tell.  Similarly, can males write feminist criticism?  Possibly, but that would open them up to obvious criticism, so why not apply that standard to non-po-cos?
