BOYZ II MEN
Simply slinging that word freely as the ultimate slur is at the root of the problem. Let me explain. That vile P-word is of course slang for female genitalia. It’s also been synonymous with weakness in men for ages, at least in modern American culture. So, take a word that has to do with the most innately female anatomical, and marry that to a code for weakness, and voila, you get misogyny and bullying all at once. One-stop shopping for any douche. Men, young men especially, need counsel and good models and courage. The courage to defend. The courage to not fit in with assholes.
