But most pressingly, after witnessing Kavanaugh’s and Trump’s outbursts, I’ve considered my 7-year-old son. What can I do to shape him into a respectful man—one who doesn’t assault women, most importantly, but who also doesn’t make lewd jokes, grab butts, mock victims, or generally treat women as if they’re inferior?
This is something that’s perplexed me. When and where do these people feel that it’s ok to touch women? Why has this carried on so long. Why haven’t we moved on as a society (at least in USA)? I’ve always grown up being told “hands off” and “no means no.” The phrases like “man up!” Or “Stop crying!” were said when I was young. While it probably had some lasting effects somewhere in my mental health, I’ve never thought that I am superior over anyone.
Stories like these frustrate me to no end. Especially being a guy, getting lumped into the same group as the disgusting men that see such things as touching women as normal because “they were asking for it.”
