It is difficult to overcome a lifetime of conditioning. The best we grey headed white guys can do is work to become more conscious.
So I read this essay from Anne Thériault. Here’s a snippet.
“Rape culture is something that men should care about not because it might affect them, but because it affects anyone at all. Men should care about women’s safety, full stop, without having the concept somehow relate back to them. Everyone should care about everyone else’s well-being – that’s what good people are supposed to do.”
