#YesAllMen

This is a first draft…

Yes All Men

#yesallmen

even if you are “good guy”
you must realize
that you still have a privilege
you still exert influence
even if you are not trying
you don’t get an award
for not raping
you don’t get a special status
for respecting a no
you aren’t a good guy
because you didn’t take advantage
you are only
not being awful

and you must recognize
that not being awful
is an aberration
you are a minority
because the majority
of men
act in awful ways
do awful things
intimidate
marginalize
take advantage
rape

and it is for this reason
that all men
even the so called not awful ones
will always be suspect

until we
change our society
to one of respect
and compassion
equality

until then

#yesallmen.
