Yes Men Need To Do More

Real Men.

As a man, I know I should rise up against these assholes that are systematically attempting to force women into sexist cubbyholes.

Harvey Weinstein, C.K. Louis, Bill Cosby? All you assholes can take a bow.

Let’s not cast all the stones at the general population of men just yet sisters.

Women fight when they’re forced to, love when they want to and are, in some cases, willing to push out a child the size of a ten-pound bowling ball. This fact alone should draw a ton of respect. As a father and grandfather, my hat’s off to women.

To this, I emphatically call bullsh*t.

And guess what? A lot of men (we all know the kind) will disagree, but the truth is whether they want to accept it or not, equality of the sexes begins at birth.

So, maybe I can help with that.

Being a different sex doesn’t mean not being equal.

It’s what a man is striving for so why shouldn’t women be provided the same opportunities?

I need to challenge it the moment the ugliness rears its head. Challenge it often, and repeatedly.

And I will, I promise.
