Women everywhere!! We need you to help us men!! We are lost, tone deaf, delusional, dangerous, irresponsible, immature, disrespectful, hurtful, and lack the compassion and care to address domestic violence in any way. In the wake of the NFL’s and Roger Goodell’s cover up of the Ray RIce domestic tragedy, and with the inspiration and leadership of Kirsten Gillibrand calling all women to take charge in a modern world, I firmly believe that these two events are not happening coincidentally, but for a reason, like fate.
Domestic violence is an issue that everyone says is horrible, but the actions taken against it to fight it say otherwise. Those actions or inactions are carried out by men, and with those inactions hollow words often precede and follow them, and this takes place of such necessary, responsible measures. Women are often the victims of domestic violence. Right now I have never been more ashamed to be a man than right now. I’m almost in tears. We need you ladies right now!!! You cannot not act. You must step up now and I am not insinuating that this is on you at all, like women allowed this to happen. You just really need to step up because men are so damn unqualified to be responsible people. I want women to lead humanity because men only seem to destroy it. You can do it!!! You can so do it!!! Lol!!! We both know it. Right?! We know how smart, sensible and caring you are? Yes!? How sensitive, virtuous, and harmonious your are? How talented, courageous, and self-less you are? How compassionate, honest, and loving you are? We need you now like a lost boy needs his mother to take charge, discipline him, teach him and then love him so that he does not remain lost and is a better man for it. A man that would never put his hands on a woman in an act of violence or any sort of unwanted contact.
Congresswoman Gillibrand and her recently released book, Off The Sidelines, has once again shed light on the fact that even men that are declared our leaders, mistreat women in a myriad of ways. In what is possibly supposed to remain as one of the most professional and dignified forums in American society, serves as an opportunity for male politicians to have a gander at what they see to be eye candy when actually it is their esteemed female colleagues. Men at every level are despicable and need to be replaced by women. I want Roger Goodell to resign his position as commissioner of the NFL and I want him to be replaced by a woman. I know that a woman can 1,000 times do a better of a job than Goodell did and then some. Actually that sentence is dumb and irrelevant because Mr. Goodell never attempted to do his job. He is a cover-up artist for the NFL, not the commissioner.
The men who run the NFL and our country (did I forget to say the world?) must be replaced by women leaders. Not ten years down the road….. NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Hillary Clinton will be elected as the first women president in two years, more women leaders like Kirsten Gillibrand will emerge in our government and around the world, the question is….. Will you be one of them? I sure hope so because when I look at you I see a leader, and I can’t wait to see what you’ll do.
I love you so much mom, my sister, my grandma, and all the women in my life to an extent that can never be shared on a blog. Now I am in tears. I love all women.
