Self Empowerment for Women

Dear Men…from the victim

How can this not be addressed?

In this post, I am not in any way saying that women are not at fault for joining in on certain conversations in regards to men and sexual innuendos. I am saying, however that it is more than not, the male mind that takes part in the degradation of the female body when in the midst of other men. Not only is this an attack on women, but it is most certainly the foundation of what feeds the minds of rapists and abusers.

We all know and have even witnessed situations that when men are in a group,  it only takes one mind to start the train of thought which leads to words of degrading women.

Why is it, that there are so few MEN in the room that will take a stand and say NO to these horrible habits of thought.  How can you say you love women on one hand, yet take part in demoralizing them as if they were nothing more than a dirty joke? These words are not amusing nor are they funny, and it is totally dis-respectable to your partners in life.

I ask that you keep these two things in mind if and when you are involved in a conversation of such:  One, that if you do not now have a daughter or daughters, that you may one day and these remarks are directed towards them as well. Two, that your mother is also being targeted with these so-called humorous remarks or jokes~  Need I say more??

Dear men...

  1. I believe the most important way to prevent men from becoming mysogynists is to not create them. Mothers AND fathers need to teach their sons to always, always be respectful of all people including women. I also think they need to have good self esteem to stay away from just following the crowd. I worked with male sex offenders (ages 10-21 -yes we had some 10 year olds) in a maximum security juvenile prison for a few years as a teacher. I’m really not sure what can be done to change an older boy/man’s disrespect and bad treatment of women.
