Shocked and Appalled
There’s been a lot in the media recently of harassment cases coming out in Hollywood of various kinds. Truth is we don’t have to look as far afield as Hollywood to find out that it goes on all around us.
I have been appalled to hear accounts of female running friends experiencing harrassment while out running from groups of men in vehicles leaving them frustrated, scared, and I can’t imagine what else, in that situation.
Men need to be held accountable in these situations. Other men have an obligation to stand up and say this behaviour is not acceptable and so be part of the solution.
Have a listen to these wise words from Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck; ‘As men we need to be mindful of our actions, hold ourselves accountable and say if I was ever part of the problem I want to change and be part of the solution.’
The Mask of Masculinity
For further great thoughts on the situation have a listen to this and how we can start to improve this situation
(excerpt) Guys; it’s time to start connecting with men your life that are willing to have real conversations that are beyond just talking about beer, girls and sports. But rather have the meaningful conversations about what is ACTUALLY happening in your life.
Ladies; help us to find strength in our vulnerabilities because it is there that we will truly meet you.
Fathers; be the type of man that you would be proud to see your daughters marry and the type of man that your son deserves to be raised by, so he can stop being part of the problem and start being part of the solution.
3 virtues for us all to live by.
Honour, respect and love; three things that every man and every woman deserves and can live by.
