With new allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault rolling in on a daily basis now, it is time for men to have a very real discussion on what is appropriate – and what is not – when it comes to our dealings with others.
This isn’t about being a better husband or father. We need to drop the qualifiers. Thus us about being a decent human being.
As I write on Medium:
Finally, if you have to ask if something is appropriate, it is a good bet it is not. If you have to defend your actions because so-and-so also did it, they what you did is indefensible. If you justify what you have done by stating that it isn’t as bad as what someone else did, you really have no justification for your actions.
Please give it a read. Sadly, these are the conversations we need to have these days.
