A few (not well cropped) panoramas from this semester, in order of appearance:
A short talk on gender violence. Specifically how it is a man’s issue. In the last year I’ve really been noticing the culture of so-called ‘masculinity’ that so many guys are brought up in and tainted by. It is the culture of dominance, one-upmanship, and the abuse of those who are weaker and stand in the way of attaining said dominance. It is the culture of complicit silence that allows such a culture to prevail.
It is on men to lead against this broken culture of manhood into what it truly means to be a man - to build up and not break down; to serve and not dominate; to be humble and not crushing; to stand against injustice and not remain silence; to love others and not use them, and to show ourselves to be truly strong in giving up of ourselves for others - not picking ourselves over all.
