Rotherham thoughts 1 March 2016 Comments Off on Rotherham thoughts

Many men, including me,  are depressed by what seems to be an endless stream of news stories about sexual abuse of women and children, recently.  Rotherham is the most recent and possibly most shocking example _ shocking because of the scale of the abuse, the apparent disinterest and lack of support for victims from police, […]

Win win! 30 August 2014 Comments Off on Win win!

It seems that some men go into a panic the moment their ‘authority’ is challenged by a woman …especially one they are close to – all too often (according to the domestic violence statistics), leading to punches being thrown in an attempt to confirm who is wearing the (literal and metaphorical) trousers in the relationship.

Everyday Sexism 28 May 2014 Comments Off on Everyday Sexism

This ‘Everyday Sexism’ video was a real eye opener for me. http://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2014/apr/04/everyday-sexism-turn-tables-women-men-video I sort of knew this kind of thing happened to women on the street etc., but didn’t realise how often, or what it must feel like to be on the receiving end. Or how ridiculous and insulting it is. I’m not sure that […]

Pain and gain 4 April 2014 Comments Off on Pain and gain

This is when bridge building skills are needed. Paradoxically, a hurt […]

Yet more on ‘Love’ 31 March 2014 Comments Off on Yet more on ‘Love’

Here’s what my favourite ‘love guru’ J David Richo http://davericho.com/ says about it all “Most people think of love as a feeling,” says David Richo, “but love is not so much a feeling as a way of being present.”  Richo offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships—one that focuses not on finding an ideal […]
