Word of the week for parents to consider talking to their children - son or daughter - about - misogyny. From the Stranger Slog:
Men should care enough about the women in our lives—our mothers,
sisters, aunts, and nieces; our female friends, partners, coworkers, and
neighbors—to recognize that misogyny is dangerous. This issue of speaking of women as sluts, whores, bitches and brushing off rape - it's not so much the guy who does these things; it's the guy who remains silent as other guys act that way. We need to teach our children to speak up against universal putdowns of the other sex.
