Now I hope things change. I do. I hope now that the women are winning that more people will start watching. That more merch will be sold. That advertising sales will skyrocket.. and I hope that winning will help, but sometimes it doesn't.
I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
Mom shaming is the worst form of women bullying
Masculinity is fine, just as relationships are fine.. add toxic to anything and it's not fine
Habits are really hard to break. It doesn't matter how many tricks you read about, it doesn't matter if there's a "change your habits in 28 days... or your money back". You may as well ask for the money back now, because habits are hard to break. Now, that is not to say that they are impossible and you're stuck with it forever.. but it's going to take work.
I don't know how we make things happen. I don't know if it's random change.. a God of your choice.. or we're living in the Matrix, but when I look around this world I see the most amazing things.. some of them natural, some of them "man made" but all of them created out of nothing but possibility and patience. If you know.. I mean really know what you want in life.. then you also know how to get it.. you just have to be willing to do the work.
When I think of empowerment I do not think of all the ways that we are better than someone else. I do not think of all the things that we can and should be doing to bring down another person or group. I think of ways that we should raise ourselves and each other up. We do not need to steps on the heads of our perceived enemies in order to rise, we just need to give each other a hand or a leg up.
#metoo is not a movement for just women. It is a movement for creating a dialog about what is and isn't appropriate in a society that has deemed casual sex to be the norm and the swiping of a profile picture as an invitation to intercourse.
"A truth is telling something that was done or someone said. Just because you think someone's ugly doesn't make it true."
The craziest part of the whole thing is that we are not actually a minority. We make up up more than 50% of the population. There is no reason for this. We are the ones who raise the future generation. We are the ones that teach boys and men how to treat others. How is this the norm? Well, sadly we tend to think of ourselves as competition instead of being each other's biggest champions.
