Our conversation about men is getting a worldwide response. Help us drive it forward.
We are talking about the changing dynamics of gender from varying points of view.
I have seen the reach of our conversation touch many lives in North America and Europe. Now, our voices are joining other multicultural conversationalists.
We are sharing global ideas about men and masculinity in the 21st century.
Here’s the really exciting thing, the more global voices we have in the conversation, the more examples we have to listen to and learn from. And diverse conversation is more likely to bring positive action.
Somewhere in Cebu City, Philippines is a group of 9 readers who have gained some hope from reading 4 Promises From a Christian Pastor Dad if His Children Turn Out to be Gay
I had just followed a young man from the Philippines on Twitter. He followed The Good Men Project back and then posted this comment in reference to John Pavlovitz,
“I love my parents, but I hope they will also respond like this great man.”
That spoke volumes to me. I continued to chat with him about The Good Men Project and encouraged him to keep his hope alive. He told me he would keep reading the website and share our article with his friends. Within a short time there were 9 real time hits from the Philippines to that same article.
After Slipping Through the Cracks in the European Union appeared on The Good Men Project, a group of 5 people somewhere in Bucharest, Romania started to visit the website. They visit around the same time everyday. They check out our top ten and featured articles.
Somewhere in Uttar Pradesh, India is a group of about 6 people who follow the same pattern as Bucharest. They visit every day and check out top ten and featured articles. I don’t know which article started things in Uttar Pradesh since they starting visiting before I started noticing these things.
How do I know these things?
Do I have special Good Men Project powers — clairvoyance, a superhuman power of empathy, and astral projection? Luckily, no.
I have science and technology and some pretty slick code. Website analytics let you watch traffic coming to the site and see the location for all the content being read.
That is pretty cool. Then combine analytics with Twitter, and you can have some real time interaction with the readers.
That is exactly what happened with the group in the Philippines.
These groups have some things in common.
They all started with a post that one person found and shared with their friends. Once they accessed the site they found relevant information for navigating the difficult waters of masculinity in the 21st century.
The connection they found keeps them coming back.
