Always Remember That, One Day

Always remember that, one day… You are going to have a daughter


One day, you are going to have a daughter; and one day, you are going to have to send her out into a world that you helped create. Whether it’s good or bad, she is going to have to live in that world.  The important thing to understand is that you help shape that world, by both your attitudes and your actions.

         What you say and do, and, as importantly, what you tolerate other people to say and do—how you let other men talk about or treat women—creates the atmosphere in which our society’s women have to live.

         One day… you are going to have a daughter, and there is going to come a point in time when you have to send that daughter out into a world you helped to create.  Will you be sending her into a safer, better, and more respectful world?


         Always remember that every woman is someone’s daughter, and that, one day, you yourself, are going to have a daughter.  Always remember that what goes around, comes around.


         One day… you are going to have a daughter, and when that happens, the Law of Karma is going to play itself out.  Karma is the doctrine that states that what goes around, comes around.  So, what you did with and to—and what you said about and to—women when you were young, is what will be said and done toward your daughter in the future.  Remember that.







Don’t Use Derogatory Language About Women,  &

Don’t Tolerate Disrespectful Language From Others Either



When you talk about women in a disrespectful way, and when you allow other people to do so without addressing them about it, you send the message that it’s okay to talk about women in that way. Implicit in that message is the idea that it’s okay to treat women in a negative way.


The truth is… it’s not okay.  And you had better wake up and do something about it.  You had better care about it, because the women who are affected by it aren’t objects, pieces of meat, sources of male pleasure, or subordinate beings. They are your sisters, your mothers, your cousins, your best friends, and one day, your daughters.








You Can Tell a Lot about a Man

You can tell a lot about a man by what he says;

You can tell even more about him by what he does;

And you can tell everything else you need to know about him

By what he tolerates others to say and do in his presence.





Be Respectful At All Times, In All Ways

When it comes to women, always remember:

No means no.

Maybe means no.

I’m not sure means no.


Be careful when it comes to women: don’t ever push a situation.  Have fun, but be smart and be respectful.  If there is ever any uncertainty in a situation, don’t push the boundaries.  Be responsible, and treat women as equals and not as pieces of meat.

             The worst thing you can do as a man is to take advantage of or force yourself on a woman.  That’s not what being a man is about.  If you do things like that you’re not a man, you’re a piece of crap.

             Remember, every young lady you meet is someone’s daughter and someone’s sister.  If you have a sister of your own, then I don’t even need to tell you what that means.  And one day, at some point in your life, you are going to have a daughter of your own.  Keep that in mind.




One day, you are going to have a daughter of your own. 

Always remember that, and don’t ever forget it.
