My work with men mandated to domestic violence education has brought to my path men who are actually victims at times, and have to take the class for 24 weeks. I help those particular men recognize how abuse created their abusive reactions. So they can own their junk and heal. It’s a tough road to walk when men’s attitudes about masculinity are societies creation. Thank you for this article.
That is how I felt today. I am on a plane. I bought wifi so I can read, articles like this one…and maybe write one I had been researching. Only to read an article laced with swearwords and I became passionate about the concept. Bingo! and the article was written in an hour. Not bad! :) Thanks for sharing.
My husband and I are best friends. We met on Facebook seven years ago and were only friends for about a year. Then we became closer. Finally, I flew to Wisconsin to meet him and the rest is history.

Seriously. I chose not to watch it because last year my ears hurt. I thought I was the only one. I’m binging on law and order. Celebrating people getting caught for behaving badly. My idea of fun; And I saved my ears.
Starbucks, if you remember is for those who want to feel a part of the world without engaging in the world (You’ve Got Mail). Diner coffee, that is a time to relax and enjoy. Totally separate experiences. One for community and one for solo.
I love it! I took time off after my Master’s degree. I’m still taking time off from academic research, and until June, I have to creatively write. I am motivated, to write creatively since I let the academic side rest. I don’t feel the same without my fingers tapping away at the keyboard, however, taking 30 days off was one of the best things I could…
It’s pretty powerful when a man empathizes with his younger self. I’ve seen it happen right in front of a group of men. When the other men really around the man is what we call a successful group work. Like the growth of the group has reached the later stage where work is done. I go through the stages of groups over and over. It never ceases to amaze…
I believe you currently write with an engaging interesting style and, at least myself am inspired. If you engage at least one person, you, Jason, are a success. Famous? Well…time will tell. I think I’ll be thankful to hit “great writer” one day, famous or not.
I work with men, many are father’s, who discover how abuse in their childhood created an easy way for them to be abusive as adults. They do want to be good fathers. We encourage it. So I appreciate your article.
