… the socialization of boys regarding masculinity is often at the expense of women. I came to realize that we don’t raise boys to be men, we raise them not to be women (or gay men). We teach boys that girls and women are “less than” and that leads to violence by some and silence by many. It’s important for men to stand up to not only stop men’s violence against women but, to teach young men a broader definition of masculinity that includes being empathetic, loving and non-violent.

Don McPherson, former NFL quarterback, feminist and educator (via spikyhairjon)

it really even isn’t that hard—expressing masculinity without contributing to women being second-class citizens is completely possible. what are we afraid of?
