A nice read about the benefits of conversation and listening, in this case within one of the first “men’s groups”.
As David mentions in the article, groups like these are much more widely spread these days but that doesn’t mean men still don’t have a ways to go in being able to express themselves emotionally.
Some inroads have been made, for sure and my feeling is that men are definitely doing better in regards to relationships in the modern day, but divorce and domestic violence are very much still problems that still need answers so that women can live the lives that they should be able to without fear or favour.
Anyway, please click through if this topic interests you and if you’re a man like me, reach out and contact your local men’s shed.
It might just change your life, for the better.
I haven’t posted in a while but when I read this I felt it had a place in this little space I have curated over many years.
And before you ask…but it’s about religion…?
Well yes, I agree but there’s also a connection in the article to sexuality and how religion subverts and squashes the beauty in female sexuality.
Louise sounds like a woman I could totally have a drink and a good yak with, and I reckon I will definitely buy her book because it’s clear to anyone paying attention that religion is next level fucked up when it comes to human sexuality.
Cults, Pentecostalism, Catholic BS, abortion rights etc. etc…I am sure you get the drift. It’s all connected in some shitty way that only seeks to subjugate women and ensure female sexuality stays in the shadows.
Anyhoo, please click through if the connection between sex and religion interests you.
It certainly does for me.
