Men Need To…

Men need to stop taking advantage of women. They need to stop treating them like second-class citizens. They need to stop trying to force themselves on them. They need to learn how to keep their hands to themselves. They need to stop trying to leverage power and/or money to coerce women into doing things that they do not want to do. They need to stop being so arrogant and self-centered. They need to stop acting as if they are superior or more important than women, because they are not.

Men need to stop accepting excuses from other men who try to justify their bad behavior. Men need to stop looking the other way when they see this bad behavior. Men need to listen, actually hear, and then take action when they are told about this bad behavior. Men need to support women who have suffered though negative experiences because of other men. They need to not be the slightest bit judgmental of women who have suffered through these situations as no part of this was their fault. Men need to understand that women do not bring these situations on themsleves. They need to educate other men (and boys) as to proper behavior as it relates to how to treat women. They need to call out the bad behavior of other men when they see it as not being right or acceptable. Men need to stop looking the other way. They need to help women find and have the empowerment, respect, and opportunites that they deserve.

Men need to start being a much better version of themselves. And those of us who feel we are on the right path need to work harder to show others the way!
