To Men I Love, About Men Who Scare Me
Laura Munoz


Thank you, Laura for writing this. It brought back so many memories of 35 years ago, when I was a young woman and these sorts of things happened to me. Thirty-five years and little has changed. That’s not right in so many ways. I feel that we women have done our share, and will continue to stick up for ourselves, but it’s time for the men to speak up in our defense. They’ve got to get over this b.s. of “bros before hoes” (to use a term) and say “hey, give her back her I.D.” or “hey, that’s not cool.” Because in the over-heated room of male testosterone, hearing is often selective, and the only voices that make it through are those that sound like Dad of their favorite sports coach. And if they think that this would be “defending us” then we need to tell them “no, it’s sticking up for what’s right and fair.” because that’s exactly what it is. It’s not a “little lady”’ thing, it’s a justice and fair play thing. That, they should understand.
