C'mon menfolk

Posted on Thu, Jan 8, 2015 at 4:00 AM

To all of you straight male identified folk in Halifax who consider themselves allies or feminists: step up and stop treating the woman in our communities like toys. Halifax has so many beautiful, strong, creative, talented female identified folks and they deserve so much better than what you are dishing. Try kindness and friendship before you objectify/sleep with us. Treat us the way you would want your friends, your family, your community, your sisters and mothers to be. I get it. It's hard sometimes, but this needs to change. Just be honest, straight forward and take a breath and try to know yourself a little more before you leap. I have seen too many tears from too many friends in this city. Our femme folk deserve so much better and it starts with you. Instead of warning us that you don't want to hurt us, just don't. Be cool and kind and honest. Be the good ally you present yourself to be. —Tears on our pillows
