Quote of the Day

"Women are more than capable of handling themselves, and have been doing so wonderfully for years. What I am saying is, as one man to another man, examine your own mind-set. Examine what makes you tick. Because if you feel that you are more valuable than your wife and kids, that's a problem."—Terry Crews, talking feminism and ally work again, and showing how it's done.

(I'm not suggesting he is perfect, or above criticism, but I am very positive about a man doing ally work who makes it very explicit that he is not speaking for or over women, but speaking to other men who don't or won't listen to women.)
