Defending Decency

Diversity makes us stronger. I support respect, tolerance, and dignity for all. Unequal application of the law has no place in our country. 

Standing-up for Women, Standing-up to Men: If you’re a man living in the world and you know, or know of, a woman who has been the survivor of violence, sexism, misogyny, or otherwise mistreated by a man, you should speak out and you should do so every time that you see it. Political party should be irrelevant. Speak out when you see these things. This is not a women’s issue, it’s a human issue and it’s a men’s issue. Women I’ve known in my life have been abused, beaten, raped, and silenced. It’s not acceptable. When people at the highest levels of our society take to shaming and attempting to silence women in sexist and misogynistic ways, we owe it to ourselves and each other to speak out.
