As a marriage and family therapist for nearly 50 years, I’ve seen too many therapists, marriage counselors, coaches, etc. who don’t fully understand the complexities of relationships or the hidden, and not so hidden, biases that portray one gender as being the “bad guy” and the other as the “good gal,” Too often these days the man is seen as “bad” and the woman as “good.” I can certainly understand the shift. For too long, and its still happening, women were put down, denigrated, and seen as having problems. But reversing the bias and seeing men as bad, doesn’t help solve our relationship problems. That’s why we need programs like the Good Men Project that understand these are not simple issues and we have to struggle finding truth and balance in the midst of gender conflict.
