Men and Climate Change
The news is too distressing today, and it’s Friday.
And then I saw this, in relation to our ‘children’s climate change protest’:
Maybe it’s time 16 yr olds got the vote. They are informed and it’s their future. We haven’t done that well.
The merchant of doom.
‘We’ … us men? The collective civilization of the world?
Who is it exactly, that hasn’t done that well?
To give this some perspective, this father is relating to his daughters.
My Y12 and Y10 Wellington High School daughters are off to climate change march today.
I am not sure whether to be totally bemused or confused by this thought traveling through the Twittersphere. The idea that we we should throw our hands up in horror admit to some sort of failure and invest power in the adolescent minds of society.
Help me out here. How many people actually think like this?
Is it just fathers with daughters who feel they can no longer object to the female voice?
Do some fathers feel like the sacraficial lambs for the ‘sins of the fathers’ or is this the death of adult male opinion according to the myths of politicians.
Malign our past and seize the future and fuck all the scientists, soldiers and servants of progress that got us this far.
Is this what you tell your children?
