Dedicated to all good men

Most of my post have been about equal rights to all especially towards women and others who are different from us. Someone made a comment on one of my post accusing me of being a “feministic moron”. I deleted it. Although I believeĀ  everyone is entitled to their own opinion and not everyone will agree with what I have to say and I have no control over that. I accept that. But what I do have control over is my blog, and what gets accepted :). I will not entertain any negativity on my blog space.

Everyone loves their mother, but what about the fathers? There are some really GOOD men out there and then some. I often hear women complain about not finding the right man, or that they’re giving up on relationships because the last one they were in was shitty. I think sometimes our expectations are too high – he’s not handsome enough, or tall enough or muscular enough. Look past the surface. Is he kind to others? Does he treat and respect women? How does he treat his mother (very telling)? Does he cook? etc.

My father is awesome. He taught me the value of hard work. He was strict (when needs be). He always showed interest in my school work, whether he understood it or not. That man would beat me silly to take school word seriously. In retrospect, that’s kind of why I’m where I am in my life now. He understood the value of education (even though his stopped at junior high). He was always around and he took good care of me as a child. The things he taught me I will pass on to my son (or daughter). I will be the best husband and father I can be because of him.

Without a father in the house, it’s easy for a child to turn towards violence. Granted it’s possible to bring up a good child as a single parent, but it’s much harder. So this post is for all the good men out there. Those that stick to it through thick and thin. Those that make time for their child/children and wife. Those that don’t abuse their woman or any other woman.

PS: Ladies, if you’re complaining about not finding the right man or that there are no good man out there, get off you high horse. YOUR right man might be closer than you think.

Respect and love to all the GOOD men out there.

Peace!

    • True, but I’ll take it a step further. It takes a neighbourhood to raise a child. There’s only som much the parents have control over.

  1. A Feministic Moron? What in the name of all that is good is that? Was it a woman? Want me to kick….oh wait..no negativity… Such a sweet post… :-) you caught me at a good time to be agreeable to the not giving up part..funny I had and funny I gave it a half assed effort one more time…and funny,…I found a promising… koala guy, fish,,, man :-)

    I never believed that there weren;t good men…just was starting to think they were all taken.. I mean look at my standards of good men… all that I think are good, are indeed taken.

    GLad you did this post… and .I still miss you.. :-) what;s new?

  2. Great post Amor! You never hear much about good dads! I’m so glad you had one! I had a wonderful grandfather and his contribution in my life was all important! Is Feministic even a word?

  3. What a wonderful post — I love it. There are some really incredible men out there. As women we just have to realize that because a man isn’t right for us doesn’t mean he is not a good man. Men are kind of like shoes — some are crappy, but some are very good, very high quality shoes. Of these good shoes, some won’t fit us. But that doesn’t negate the fact that they are indeed good shoes. :-)
