An Apology to Our Brothers

Hellena Post-Creatrix writes a beautiful and honest ‘note to menfolk,’ from the heart of a once self-described radical feminist and enemy-of-men who has come to deeply appreciate how much men get an equally short stick (maybe shorter) in our western world, and how much we need to be allies to come to true health in our society.

A must read for people of all genders!

Read a Note to Menfolk

Excerpt:

“To the men who feel so alone and isolated within their pain that they see no other course than to end their lives.  To the men who have dissolved into fear in the bottom of a beer glass.  To the men who have to go off to work when their heart stays at home.  To the boys who listen to their mothers talking to their girlfriends about the latest bastard thing their man did.  To the men who listen to a thousand reports about another man somewhere who did something bad.  To the men desperately wanting a boundary and never getting one.  To the men who feel closed out and blamed by a sisterhood of tight knit women.  To the men that desperately want to be fathers, but are kept away from it by one or another hierarchy……..

I see you and I love you and I know you really wish it could be better. “
