Exactly. It is no more the natural state of man to be toxic than it is the natural state of woman to be helpless. We (hopefully) do the best that we can to teach our sons right from wrong, how to best handle themselves in most situations, yet, things can still go horribly wrong. Having been a victim, I have seen what happens from that side of things. Being a Mom of 2 boys, and a reasonable human being, I do not automatically say “all men”, either. There are so many things broken that need to be fixed, and it’s people like you who are doing what is needed. Thank you for sharing this.
