There is hope in the unknown. In the light that casts its last shadows, for tomorrow we will grow up a little more. Tomorrow we will be better. We will know more about ourselves and the world...

"Our main focus on the curriculum is positive masculinity for the boys, positive empowerment, and actually making them gentlemen on issues to do with the prevention of rape and standing up for the rights of women," said Omondi, dressed in a black T-shirt with NO! emblazoned on the front.

Kenyan schoolboys save girls from rape after learning 'no means no': TRFN
In order to make any sort of real change, we have to do more than hold a few seats for our sons at the table, we must invite them to sit down, to speak, to share... Otherwise, we are drawing an even bigger line in the sand -- separating our sons and daughters with our fear when we should be bringing them together with our hope.
"Come sit with us."
Research shows that relationships and the ability to connect emotionally are key to happiness, health and even career success. Studies also show that toys have the power to influence the way kids see themselves and the world around them. But right now toys that encourage connection and empathy are only marketed to girls -- sending the message to many boys that this kind of play is not for them." -Laura Wider, creator of Wonder Crew

“When I took a paternity leave - which was the first case amongst the heads of local governments in all of Japan - someone criticized me for ‘being effeminate’ because I was doing the childcare. I am proud of having been referred to that way back then. For the majority of Japanese men, it was not a matter of being unable to do it, but of simply not doing it at the time. They can do it now. ‘He For She’ and ‘She For He’ are bilateral.” - Hironobu Narisawa, Mayor of Bunkyo Tokyo, Japan
"But wouldn’t it be productive if this collective outrage, as my colleagues have said, could be channelled to truly hear and address the long-suffering cries for help by so many women? And as they said, do something about it? Like an on-going education of men about what healthy, respectful manhood is all about..." - James Brown, CBS Sports

Film, Boyhood Movie, 12 Years, Richard Linklat, Ethan Hawks, Patricia Arquette, Mason, Movie Review, Boyhood 2014
Boyhood stars Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke and is directed by Richard Linklater. The film is a 12 year epic spanning the life of a boy named Mason from when he is a little boy to being a college student. The film is getting lots of oscar buzz because of its grand story. I just thought it was good. It had good performances by Arquette and Hawke and had one of the best stories of all time. Though the child acting was hard to watch and the duration was to long. I give Boyhood a B.

It’s dangerous because the men whose self-esteem and self-confidence take a hit during these fleeting moments of “emasculation” don’t just bottle it up inside and allow themselves to whither away (dangerous in its own right, to be sure). No, it’s dangerous because those men, believing they are entitled to feeling masculine and powerful in a world that worships the masculine and powerful, often take out their frustration on the rest of society...

"Especially telling, the majority of government and philanthropic funding for gender friendly-programming goes to programs and innovations to help girls and women. The existence of this funding is to be celebrated, but the disconnect between the reality males face and the social justice attention males get needs to be examined by each of us."
