What is Dear Men of Tomorrow about?
I grew up with a jealous dad who disrespected my mum for years. I didn't realize how much I unconsciously learn't from him about relationships until much later on in adulthood. This project is my part to help ensure today's youth don't become the misogynists and abusers of tomorrow.
I'm seeking the collective wisdom of women of the world to help give the men of tomorrow some clarity on how not to treat a partner from first hand experience.
This blog has a very specific purpose. Not to blame men, but to help dads of today be armed with real stories from real woman about what disrespect looks like and how it made them feel. They can point to these stories and say "it's not just me saying this."
The post's I'm collecting show what disrespect looks like in all it's forms, financial, emotional sexual and physical abuse.
It's not for all men. I have realized early on some men want to talk about their stories of being abused by women. I haven't set it up for that purpose. I've set this up to eventually reach men who want to end men's violence towards women but first
To start that conversation, I need your stories & advice.
If you could give a young guy advice on how not to treat his girlfriend and why, from your own experiences in love, what would you say? You can just give him positive advice too.
