In the Western world, many men are taught from birth they have an inherent right to power — that boys are tough and strong and aggressive and have a right to anger, that girls are gentle and pretty and compliant; that emotional and domestic labour are women’s roles, and men are violent, protective, providers and dominant.
Even in the most balanced families, little boys see these lessons play out in the books they read and the movies they watch and the media constantly feeding into their subconscious. Sadly, this entitlement is even reinforced through church culture. Male entitlement plays a significant role in abuse.

As a historian, I know there can be two opposing accounts of the same event, both of which are equally accurate. I mean exactly what I wrote: two stories that contradict each other, even though each is accurate, valid, and supported by facts that can be verified. How can this be? When I look at my own life as an American white man, I could see it all as the story of my work. Such accounting is valid. Yet, at the same time, it is inadequate, incomplete, and misleading.

By Aaron Mok – May 13, It is common nowadays for 21st century millennials to search for partners, whether it be romantic or sexual, through dating apps. Apps such as Tinder, Grindr, Her and so forth have made pursuing partners much more convenient and accessible than it used to be.
