This comment was by Debbie M in reference to the post –“Man Up and Get Over it” is so Old School (and So Damaging to All of Us)
Articles like this give me the strength and resolve to remember the world really is changing.
I have been working through one of the facts of my life lately which is, the better trial lawyer, woman, and person I have become in this life the more resistance I have met from the men in power and the women who live in that same paradigm. I have always believed that devoting yourself to living a better life was the way to guarantee that you would live a successful life but I have learned that is not true.
If you live a life that somehow challenges those in power, you have a choice to conform or go your own way. I have learned to redefine what success is for me because I am simply unwilling to conform to the prevailing views of our times, but like you, I don’t believe that we should have to do that.
I am so grateful that a man has so eloquently written an article like this. I have quite frankly lost a large amount of faith in men but I am more than willing to have my faith restored. Your article was a good start. Thank you.
