I have been an avid reader of A Voice for Men for just under two years. There have been things shared on that website that have changed my mind, opened me to new ideas, and broke my heart. But few things on AVfM have been nearly as moving to me as this video clip from Andy Man

The opening of the piece the poem “Feminists Killed Kurt Kobain” by L. Byron which I wanted to re-link here so that you can get a clear read of it.
Andy Man, you have brought tears to my eyes, and stirred feelings and memories I have left undisturbed for a long time. This is why I write the blog. This is the change I want to see in the world. A place where Men are no longer taught to hate themselves, no longer huddled alone in empty houses and cold apartments facing inner demons without guidance.
A place where a husband and father is a honoured figure, rather than a clownish Homer Simpson or Al Bundy. A place where little boys still tell wild-eyed dreams of being fighter-jet pilots, athletes, and superheroes, rather than being ground down into quiet brooding. Where every Man has a friend or mentor he can reach out to who will walk him through the hardest parts of his life with silent, solid acceptance.
