Man Law Monday #2: WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES

This is a combination of Man Law Monday, and current event news.  Either way, it’s all relative information that we need to be aware of, and help out.

Real Men, DO NOT; hurt, abuse or take advantage of women.  Simple as that.  No excuses.  It’s a sad state of affairs that this even has to be explained.  But alas, here we are. 

We all have mothers, grandmothers, possibly aunts or sisters; yet this is still a major problem.  Not only in America, but around the world.

Some assholes actually use phrases like, “She was asking for it” or “Look at the way she’s dressed”.

Really?

Grow a pair of balls! 

You’re never allowed to do such a thing.  That’s it.  End of story.  If you’re ever in a situation when you’re arguing with a female, and things are getting heated…just walk away. 

Don’t do anything that you’d be ashamed of if your grandmother, mother or daughter found out.

If you do, you’re not a man.  Hell, you’re not even a boy.  You’d be nothing more than dirt.

I’m bringing this up because of an awareness/fundraiser that I found.  It’s so brilliant that I, HAD, to mention it.

“Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” is an organization / fundraiser to stop sexualized violence.

It’s a rather brilliant move.  They are seriously helping a great cause, while having a tremendous humor/amusement factor involved. 

Men will walk in women’s shoes (high heels / stilettos), to raise money and spread awareness of sexualized violence.

I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post pictures of their runs.  But here’s the link to their flickr page.  It’s hilarious…

This is really a tremendous group.  I really have to tip my hat to them.  They do an excellent job of taking a serious topic, and make it easy to talk about.  Simply amazing.

To quote one of the participants, “They walk because they care about women”.

And you should too, because men need to respect women. Sexual violence is like the flu.  It can spread easily.  Without realizing it, kids around you can pick up the habits.  One day, when they’re older, you don’t want them to think it’s ok to act or be treated in such a manner.
