Recommended! This is obvious to many but not all and more people should say it.
More real men from last night’s tickets-sold-out panel discussion with @EveEnsler:
[Video] “Breaking The Male Code: After Steubenville A Call To Action”
[Video Interview] Even Nobel Prize Laureate Jody Williams was sexually assaulted (by a member of the US taxpayer paid-for, US-backed Salvadoran death squads trained by the US military). The people in the US need look at what these behaviors really mean and place responsibility on the perpetrators.
My SO (born-and-bred US=ian) is a really nice guy. He can’t figure how some guys do that stuff. He had frat bros who bragged of ‘conquests’ (involving date-rape drugs, in those days chloral hydrate or such), but he thought they were making it up. I went to a different university, and in a girl’s dorm. From my friends, no, the guys were not making it up.
In my exp, guys who ‘score’, however way, think that everyone does it. Guys who don’t think that their friends are bullshitting. Girls who get ‘done’ assume that it happens to all girls, those who don’t think that it only happens to the ‘bad girls’.
And now, after all these decades, it still seems that there is a basic lack of understanding of the word “no”.
LOL! The pop-up ad is telling me to click to view gay singles available in my area! What a conclusion!
