… the socialization of boys regarding masculinity is often at the expense of women. I came to realize that we don’t raise boys to be men, we raise them not to be women (or gay men). We teach boys that girls and women are “less than” and that leads to violence by some and silence by many. It’s important for men to stand up to not only stop men’s violence against women but, to teach young men a broader definition of masculinity that includes being empathetic, loving and non-violent.

There is this competitive university program that I’m waiting to hear back from, it is the only program I want to do. And so, I’ve decided that if I am not accepted I will reward myself (for my mediocre effort this past year) with a 4 month trip to India in the winter. That’s how reality works right?
