Millions of pages have been devoted to demystifying the relationship between men and women, unpacking gendered power dynamics, and more recently, to interrogating toxic masculinity and finding ways to hold some men accountable for their bad behavior.
But what role do men have to play in ending this epidemic, and divorcing themselves from the toxic masculinity that underlies this behavior? If we want to have less-toxic men, then one thing we can do is create spaces for them to be vulnerable and have access to healing.
But this moment in masculine response requires a special attention to weight, to balance. Balance between the part of me that was raised and socialized and moved through the world as a girl and young woman, the part of me that was touched and talked to and treated in a way that so many girls and young women are.
The part of me that wants to say, loudly and clearly: that was me, too. And the part of me that now lives as and moves through and takes up space in this world as a guy. Guys get more space. Guys get more airtime. And yet, trans guys have a place in MeToo. We have stories that matter in this moment. The vast majority of men are not abusive, do not sexually harass [or] sexually assault.
But the vast majority of men are silent about the violence, harassment, and abuse that women and girls and other oppressed groups experience. In that process, we must listen to women, believe them and validate their experiences. And I believe we need to encourage them to be more protective of their matriarchs, their women, their mothers, their children.
A lot of our women are missing due to toxic masculinity—men wanting to sexualize and objectify women. We want men to feel confident of being protectors and providers, not in a domineering and controlling way, but in a loving and caring way, and not to be scared to express their feminine side.
In particular, Black men have to unpack the legacy and pain of lynching in this country—many of which happened at the accusation of rape or sex with a White woman. And so that causes a huge problem and barrier for Black men to be advocates in the MeToo movement. White people do that. But we say it like it is. And I think, fundamentally, what a nontoxic masculinity looks like, is a masculinity without patriarchy. Once that stops, we can have a world without toxic masculinity and without patriarchy.
We need to listen and redefine the way we approach consent and have those uncomfortable conversations with other men. We must be bold in changing the culture of sexual violence and diligently identify and end our personal participation and encouragement of it.
If we are not active, we are complicit. Most of us know nothing outside of systems that have been built to uphold White supremacy in this country. Maru Mora Villalpando, undocumented community organizer and co-founder of La Resistencia. We live in a patriarchal society, therefore men have the responsibility to be anti-patriarchal and create a process for their peers to understand it and undo it. For us cisgender women of color, being part of a growing queer and trans grassroots movement makes it imperative to create a space where all these communities can lead.
It is up to cis men to confront their privilege and work to create a space where all genders can participate and lead. Emails YES! Can We Build a Better Man? Share Facebook Twitter Email Share.

The past two weeks I have been looking at lessons I have gleaned from some of my favorite Christmas movies. This week I would like to look at another well known movie A Christmas Carol. Various versions have been made over the years, but my two favorites are the made for TV version from starring George C. A Christmas Carol is weighty with lessons to be learned.

Today, a huge story shifted for me. I was talking with my dad on the phone about how I was having difficulty with stepping back from this mindset that was demanding everything be as close to perfection as possible. But with new things I was trying to accomplish, there was this mindset that kept on coming back in that would constantly throw me off course or stall my movement forward.

Better Man (Pearl Jam song)
Regular folks, however, know the tale rarely plays out as easily as a Disney movie. In the squandering, there is danger, for the ones laying waste to love are often laying waste to their lives. Better Man , the minute documentary we premiere here today, gives us the whole story: the fairy tale plus the danger and work underneath it. Its director, Chris Stanford, had set out to make a simple film about rodeo, after discovering the annual June rodeo in tiny Shady Dale, Georgia, population His motive was equally straightforward — the need for an adventure, a small diversion from the work that feeds his family, shooting commercials and the like. The Bitter Southerner is proud to present this film. Chuck Reece: Tell me how this film came about. I'm a director, and four or five years ago, I had shot a bunch of commercials back to back to back.
Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter. As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father. As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered.
Pearl Jam - Better Man Lyrics
После минутного упорства ему придется уступить. Но если я вызову агентов безопасности, весь мой план рухнет, - подумал. Хейл сдавил горло Сьюзан немного сильнее, и она вскрикнула от боли. - Ну что, вы решили.
Buy for others
Может. - Сьюзан пожала плечами, демонстрируя равнодушие. - Мы с ним какое-то время переписывались, - как бы невзначай сказал Хейл. - С Танкадо.
Сначала она не увидела ничего, кроме облаков пара. Но потом поняла, куда смотрел коммандер: на человеческую фигуру шестью этажами ниже, которая то и дело возникала в разрывах пара.
Двигаясь к будке, он нащупывал в кармане деньги. Нашлось 75 песет никелевыми монетками, сдача от поездки в такси, - достаточно для двух местных звонков. Он вежливо улыбнулся озабоченной медсестре и вошел в будку. Сняв трубку, набрал номер справочной службы и через тридцать секунд получил номер главного офиса больницы.
На ВР последняя стенка напоминала тонюсенькую пленку. Вокруг нее было черно от нитей, готовых ринуться внутрь. Справа бесконечной чередой мелькали кадры, запечатлевшие последние минуты Танкадо: выражение отчаяния на его лице, вытянутую руку, кольцо, поблескивающее на солнце. Сьюзан смотрела на эти кадры, то выходившие из фокуса, то вновь обретавшие четкость. Она вглядывалась в глаза Танкадо - и видела в них раскаяние. Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она.
- Он хотел нас спасти.
Окрыленная надеждой, Сьюзан нажала на кнопку. И опять за дверью что-то как будто включилось. Она услышала, что в кабине работает вентиляция. Лифт .
