Thank you, Sir. I believe it is a leadership issue as well. My sons are defenders of women because of the leadership of their father. One even taught women's self defense classes for two years before entering the service. Thank God for men of valor and integrity who value the lives and dignity of other people.
I LOVE WHAT THIS MAN HAD TO SAY! WOW SO TRUE! WE NEED TO DO BETTER! FOR OUR KIDS, GRANDKIDS, AND OUR COUNTRY. LET'S NOT GO BACK IN TIME WE SHOULD BE MORE UNITED AND SUPPORTIVE OF ONE ANOTHER. WE ONLY HAVE ONE LIFE AND ONE WORLD.. LETS SHARE IT IN PEACE INSTEAD OF FIGHTING ABOUT PETTY THINGS!
I’m grateful that he did this talk. But I don’t believe that toxic men will ever change their minds. I don’t believe that most men have the integrity to think of women as equals. And I’m tired of remembering the abusive men in my life. I have tried to kill myself many times but I’m not brave enough to actually go through with it. My therapist is a kind man who does what he can for me but I’m starting to see that in order to live a functional life, one must completely disregard their emotions. No man would ever care that I was abused. But neither would any woman. I think that tragedy is just. . . Normal. And the only way society will consider a human normal is if you shut up and swallow the pain. I’ve swallowed the pain. I’m starting to choke on it. Maybe the killers have the right idea. If I kill enough people. Maybe they will finally believe me when I say I need to die and do me the favor. Because this is the way the Great Generation made our society. This is what the baby boomers encourage and perpetuate; that sexism is inherent. That women deserve to suffer. And that only the strong survive. Who would want to live in this?
The solution to this is not about changing the definition of manhood. In fact, it is about instilling in young boys how to be a proper man. The biggest contributing factors to boys raised to be violent towards women or other men results from bad parenting, and more specifically, bad fathering. Young boys need a father as a role model, to show them how to treat women and how to be a gentleman. As more families break up, and more children are raised without a dad, the issue of men's violence is only increasing.
It started well... I think he is good at heart, and I agree with his solution, but not his way of sending the message. We also have to say no to the radicalism that has swept through feminism (Which is sexism...). It is getting harder and harder for men like him to get their message heard in any gender debate. For the recoed I want to have a personal conversation with this man.
So you're telling me I have to censor my jokes because some people are sensitive? A joke is a joke nothing more nothing less. What ever happened to sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt?
Important Question :
"Why many (most?) beaten women always go back to their beater even with all the resources they have at their disposal ? "
Speaker point of view :
"Let's not ask that question, it's not getting us anywhere"
Really ? If you refuse to investigate that question, answer it, and integrate it to your explanation, you are being dishonest and biased. This Talk is anti-men.
I’m a man and I was physically and emotionally abused by a female preschool teacher. What she did in person ended 20 years ago, but the aftermath of it still affects me today.
I was the only student in the class that could speak (it was a special needs class). Every day, she’d pick me up by the chair I was sitting on and literally drop me into a corner. She’d hit other kids in the class and cuss them out, and all the while, I’d hear them screaming and crying. And when I’d turn my head to see, she’d smack me on the side of my head so I’d face the wall.
Ever since then, I’ve been unable to be around small children, especially kids 5 and under. I don’t want to remain silent anymore. I want the world to know who she is and what she did.
Her name is Dina Holder and she lives in Brentwood California.
I love it when the topic of conversation has something to do with women, man start yelling "why are you not talking about our problems" in the conversation about women. Lovely logic, has to be about men everywhere and about everything. Feminism is bad for them, of course because for wrong doings to women will get punished, and they don't want that. Statistics don't lie, but even with statistics they have to show the finger. Defending men's rights? What fights? Women have had basic human rights for five minutes, but men want feminism to fight for their rights too. Who took them away? Men did, to fight your own kind then about your fights. Feminism isn't about equal rights, it's about rights for women. You men rule the world, women only a little bit and you're still trying to take that away. Women are human beings and we will continue demanding and fighting for our rights to live as human beings, and as an accessory for a man.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Finally!!! A REAL, brave, strong of character, morally and emotionally intelligent MAN telling the world what correctly needs to be said and done to those in power, so EVERYONE can benefit. This is what women and minorities have wanted to say and be heard for ever. Hopefully with more men like this wonderful man changing the very fabric of society's power structures, there may be hope for humanity.
i just want to know what i can do, please someone send me a video or make one. there's so much talk but i need someone to help me know what i need to do how i can help. is there more than talk? is there a way i should talk? please send help i know whats going on ok i am only 15 and i can see that this is going on. but idk how to help or stop it
Because we do live in a patriarchy and men/boys are not being taught to always focus, that they owe their lifes to women, so they should treat them like goddesses and not be obstreperous to them - not mentally or physically.
I'm sorry I didn't make my self clear, I'm NOT talking about those who speak up and support victims, I'm was talking about people who watch violent acts against women and do nothing. I guess it was easier to leave a snarky comment, then to stop and think and ask what did my comment mean.
Its true that women are treated bad, but we cannot hide the fact that women wants more power, Men and Women arent equal. God created them different, Now some men support Feminism and want Women to take over, just like they had in the Educational system where women teachers take advantage of boys.
i feel like people on every single side of this whole topic need to strive to listen with their minds and not their hearts. they need to take away all of the things that they feel about the topic that they have already created opinions of and LISTEN to each other out of logic and respect. i think people need to stop filling in the blank spaces of others' arguments and should stop assuming what others are thinking and really, really try their hardest to understand. i truly believe that having understanding and feeling understood are the keys to the beginnings of working together... there's a lot of individuals who take everything somebody is saying and turn it into an emotional and an angry sounding mush. i believe people need to think with their own minds and look at the facts/data. its fine to not agree with every single thing somebody is saying, and i think certain individuals should recognize that and stop letting others' different opinions make them feel so hurt. i think some should try to learn to think/speak with their own individual brains.
"Isn't your silence a form of consent and complicity?" I agree. Victims of DV need to speak out and get those bastards thrown in jail. I think that would be a lot more effective than trying to mentally reprogram the entire population for something that a few bad people are doing. Violence is wrong, and should be punished no matter who is committing it.
I am very interested to learn more about what you are doing.
I think it is great that you are teaching leadership in the Marines.
My ex husband was a Marine. I tried to report what was going on and was told it was “alleged”.
I hope you can change that mindset
Aren't low I.Qs, abuse, mental health issues and lack of male role models responsible for most of these problems. I don't see peer pressure working as people with these issues will reject society and find others with their viewpoint or learn to hide it better. If anything I imagine allowing men to be more masculine and excel further in the abilities in which men excel will allow them to harness their masculinity and produce better role models. Shaming men will surely just encourage the behavior. Basic psychology reward good behavior, don't dwell on bad behavior.
Good to know some men are working on this because as we women know they are the only ones who can really stop it from being "cool, ok, normal, justifiable, acceptable, permissible, expected, manly behaviour." MEN HAVE TO HEAR IT FROM MEN. They HAVE TO hear it from their own ROLE MODELS, their FATHERS, friends, celebrities, sports heroes, BOSSES. Men in positions of power. Politicians, shop keepers, restaurant and bar owners, men's trade organizations, doctors, mechanics... There is a lot to UNDO and I know that I HAVE to participate and hold men in my life accountable for their behaviour including the tradesmen I have to deal with regularly which I have found to be extremely challenging and even frightening. I have reported trade men's behaviour to their supervisors and had their supervisors defend them. I've reported harassment by male co- worker and been told I'm over reacting by female supervisors. I have no contact with my older brothers because of their abusive behaviour. My whole life has been deeply affected by men's denial of responsibility for their abusive, intimidating and corrosive behaviour. They can fix it by taking responsibility which is the hallmark of maturity and real strength of character.
You talk like men are the only abusers. This is the 21st century. If a woman is beating a man she will even be encouraged on the spot, "girl power". My life in recent years has been affected by women's denial of responsibility for their abusive, somewhat intimidating, and very corrosive behavior. These cunts are very present, but feminists and twatbags refuse to acknowledge this issue.
Feminism is the definition of sexism. It the female version of chauvinism and no less acceptable. You spout off about equality? How dare you, you dont want equality. All women do is try and fix problems for themselves, despite equality being an issue for everyone.
If you werent sexist you would be campaigning for equality and rights for all, not just your gender. Shame on you.
You do realize how powerless you are right?
Whenever a woman wants equality, they have to ask men to give it to them. It can be taken away at any time of our choosing and you can all be dominated again with ease, with women have no power to stop us. Tread carefully.
I hate men so much, and I'm a male myself. Only 5 percent of murders are committed by women, while 95 percent of murders are committed by men.
Also I'm pretty sure the gender statistics for murderers is most likely nearly the same statistic for how many men and women are rapists.
And also I'm pretty sure the gender statistics for murderers and rapists is most likely nearly the same statistic for how many men and women are domestic abusers.
Another reason why I hate men is because a lot of them are misogynists, and thus they are the reason why sexism exists.
Women generally have a more loving nature than men do, and they have more compassion. So that's why women are better than men are. So I think the world would be a better place without men.
For the past 50 years women have been saying, "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle," "I'm a strong independent woman who don't need no man," "Anything a man can do women can do...better," and "A woman has to work twice as hard as a man to get half the credit; fortunately it's easy." (((Katz))) needs to stop being a sexist and let womyn handle this.
Yeah, but what about when these "victims" were the ones who started the violence/abuse? Then after years of it the man snaps and becomes the abuser? The woman gets off free and wrapped up in cotton wool.
Fortified Mentality I know you're a closed-minded misogynist but I'm going to try engaging with you regardless. There are two diseases - A and B. The chances of dying from A are 95% and that of dying from B are 5% - which disease would you want cured first? Male violence is disease A
Fortified Mentality nobody is denying that men can be abused. What they are pointing out is that although men can be abused they very rarely are. That doesn’t mean they should be ignored however of course the issue of the majority needs to be addressed and will be addressed more.
Good speech. I like how he said both men and women need to start working together instead of being in opposition. Much of what I see today regarding this issue is both sexes in opposition to one another.
The majority of these "monster men" were victims of abuse as kids. They are doing what was done to them. That's where we need to intervene and if we REALLY want to fix this problem then we would have to violate some rights of people. There are probably hundreds of thousands of kids locked away hidden that are being abused and that sickens me! I wish I could do something. I wish I was able to assist the cops in some way!!
