Not All Men,
I have a son and I REFUSE to blame all men for what individual people do.
I do not blame ALL men for a man that refuses to take no for answer.
I do not blame ALL men for a man thinking that a woman was asking for it because of what she was wearing.
I do not blame ALL men for women being paid less, or being treated differently or being whistled at or being shouted at in the street, or being harassed or being stereotyped.
WHY is this the fault of all men? I do not understand? I have a son and two daughters, I am bringing them ALL up to believe that they can be who they want to be, to be proud of who they are. and neither my daughters OR MY SON should be ashamed of their gender.
The battle is not with the whole sex, the battle is with individuals and I refuse to hate all men including my son and my partner who support me in all that I do because of assholes.
How can I teach my daughters to be individuals, while the world tells my son that men are all the same?
There are some sick, sick people out there, male and female. but no-one deserves to be tarnished for something that someone else has done. I am seeing hatred, I am seeing anger, but aiming this hatred at a whole gender? Is that fair?
My son is 12 years old, he has two sisters, he is being taught to be respectful of everyone, not just women, everyone, and my daughters are taught the same.
It is NOT all men who are the issue, it is not my son. and I refuse to have the man that he will grow to be, tarred with the same brush just because of gender.
It is NOT all men.
How do you feel about this? do you disagree with what I am saying here? Let me know. As always, this is a friendly place to be and everyone's opinion matters to me. Let me know what you think.
