What's up with the menfolk? Maven wants to know.

Good morning, friends.  I literally forgot what day it is today and had to take about ten child's poses in barre this morning. I'm so out of sorts. Make it stop.

So this week saw some women rise to prominence in politics, and for that, I am relieved. It's time to change things, even though Trump got elected just a year ago, it feels like a year too long. I'm excited to see what the womenfolk can do to dismantle the patriarchy. Heavy I know, but needs to happen. Now. And lest you label me a man hater, I'm far from it.  But wow, y'all are in a bad place. 

And I've been thinking a lot about men and how they must be feeling at this moment in time. Particularly white men. Yesterday I read about Charlie Sheen raping Corey Haim and I couldn't believe what I was reading.  WTF?

Men behaving badly is hardly news. We've seen it for years but right now is a real watershed moment of badness. And if you're reading this and you're a male or a white male in particular, I ask you- how you doing? What's it like living in a world where all eyes are on you? I'm not demonizing any of you out there, mind you. I'm just wondering- what's it like to be a man these days? Is is the same as it ever was or is there a new normal of walking on eggshells mixed with fire? I'm just wondering what's going to happen to men now that all eyes are on them and their behavior, particularly towards women. Hmm. Just thinking about that. Does it change dating? Does it change workplace behavior? Does it change basically everything? One wonders.

Sure we're talking about very public figures, but clearly this will trickle down to the rest of you. How do you plan on evolving as a result? 

So if you feel like, drop me a line and let me know what you think in the comments.  Oh, and watch your backs, and your upper hands, and really, everything else. We're coming for you. And when we do, keep your hands to yourselves. 

Cause that's what's up this wondering about men kind of Thursday in the 212. Yours, in the battle of the sexes. XO
