Your gimlet-eyed Peasant saw this message on
Facebook recently, and I want to share it with you,
my fabulous readers, especially those of you with
youngsters not yet through their teens. This wee
bit of wisdom will do much to bring about respect
for girls and women, as well as to revive true romance;
we as a society could only benefit from this knowledge.
WE NEED TO TEACH OUR DAUGHTERS TO KNOW
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN:
A man who flatters her and a man who complements her,
A man who spends money on her and a man who invests
A man who views her as property and a man who views
A man who lusts after her and a man who loves her,
A man who believes he's a gift to women, and a man
who believes she's a gift to him,
And then we need to teach our sons to be that kind of man.
I posted this piece on my Facebook page as soon as I saw
it. If all parents did this for their children, our families,
our communities, our society, and our country would be
so much less contentious and so much more civil, loving,
respectful, caring, kind, warm, and joyful.
Don't you think?
