Men, #DoBetter!

I am calling on all the men in my life (online and IRL) to #DoBetter.

Yes, YOU! Every one of you!

#DoBetter, not because you are seeing more than one #MeToo pass by on your feeds (like it’s a new phenomenon), but because there shouldn’t need to be one in the first place.

#DoBetter, not because you have a daughter/sister/mother/NB friend or family member, but because NO ONE deserves violence based on their gender or gender expression.

#DoBetter because coming forward and admitting to be a survivor of violence should NEVER be met with shame or blame.

#DoBetter because the response to ANYONE who trusts enough to confide in us that they are survivors, should be to believe them, not question them.

#DoBetter because only men can/should change and it’s up to US to hold each other accountable.

Also, if I have EVER done anything to make any woman or femme presenting person feel unsafe, please let me know. My intent does not absolve the impact of my actions/words.

Because only after you know better, can you #DoBetter!

So let’s chat. What concrete action(s) will you take to end misogyny?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
