It has come to my attention over the last few years that there is a bunch of men out there that aren't quite sure how they should be conducting themselves around women.
It doesn't matter if you are online, on an app, or in person, there are some things that we need to stand up and take responsibility for as gentlemen!
Abusing women in person, on Tinder, Twitter, groping people in clubs, generally being pests. Its not ok, and its not funny, mostly it just results in women being scared and wary of men.
I propose that as a gender we just agree that a handful of things aren't ok! I will be illustrating them over a couple of VLOG's so there is no confusion.
You don't have to marry every person you go on a date with, and freedom of speech gives you the absolute right to think and speak your mind however you feel fit. It does not however mean you can just abuse whoever you like and try to make people feel scared and terrible because you're having a bad day. With permission, feel free to do whatever you guys are down with! Without permission..... Just Be Nice. Stop the unsolicited dick pics, abuse and grabbing. We can do better!
With all the problems that we have in the world currently, this is an easy place to make a huge adjustment, working to help women feel safe no matter where they are, what they are wearing, how much they've had to drink and what they are doing.
Ironically, in a world where women feel safe and comfortable around men... Dating and striking up conversations would probably be easier! If you aren't one of the bad ones, that's fantastic! The good ones need to speak up and put an end to it. Clearly we need the men to stand up and say something because women have been doing it for years and it appears to fall on deaf ears.
Gentlemen lets end dance-floor creeping, Tinder-abuse and generally being idiots around women!!
Watch Part One Here!
