Listen to women

Today’s big (not-so-shocking) story at The New Yorker.

Dear Rebecca:

Given the title of this post, I’ll keep it brief.

Most guys couldn’t live in the world that women do. The world that men create for them.

That world is not confined to Hollywood. Most women I know have a story.

I pray I’m raising my son to be a man who treats women with respect. But we’re swimming against a terrible, terrible cultural tide.

And oh yeah, guys: Listen to women.

Mournfully, Joel
