One Response to “The #MeToo Movement Is Scaring Men Into Submission

  • Very well written and good points. Women as intentional leaders will be wonderful for society and as a man in an FLR I can say both men and women benefit from the woman leading.

    In the beginning of our FLR and even periodically still today, I sometimes defer too much or submit too much to my wife. Fortunately, my wife will correct me if she feels I am being too afraid or too tentative in deciding what I need to do or not do. For example, I still attempt to hold the door, open the car door for her first at all times but she will simply tell me directly, “Just get in, you don’t need to open my side”. Or if she assigns/delegates 3 tasks, and I ask “Which chore/task would you like me to do first?” She may say in an irritated tone, “Just get them all done before I get home, I really don’t care in what order”. This tells me that I am deferring too much and I need to strike a balance.

    Providing a compliment to a lady about her beauty or how impressed you are by her leadership if done politely and gentlemanly hopefully will not be viewed as harassment despite the Me Too movement. Would be interested to hear some ladies opinions on this subject.
