But our recovery as men begins with telling the truth about ourselves and naming our oppressions. --everyman.org
Everyman: A Men's Journal: "This honour code is deeply and fundamentally alive in men today, and it is still society's greatest defense against both individual and collective male violence. And this is where the urgency of our present situation is apparent, for Feminism has, for the first time in history, turned women from shaming individual men who are judged dishonourable, to shaming men in general and masculinity as an institution. And the very real danger in this is that if men come to perceive that there is no way for them to achieve honour, to be recognized publicly and privately as 'good' men, then they may sense that they have little to lose by taking what they want, since they have little to gain by restraining themselves. I very much fear that if we do not turn aside from our still-growing, wholesale shaming of men and the Patriarchy and all things male, that our future may contain civil violence of a degree we have never seen before."
I have been silent for a long time. I watched and said nothing. Now i stand with my brothers and stand up for truth, freedom and happiness. I hide my name to protect my family from those who might do violence because of what I say.
Abuse is an act of choice based on an attempt to offload responsibility and/or fears to any Other.
