All around me I see too much pain caused by men. Sometimes caused consciously, but frequently also caused unconsciously. Unfortunately, I also know the pain I have caused others, because I was too ignorant, too little aware that I was a man whose thoughts and choices were influenced by others, by the media, by stereotypes. I learned too late. Now I want to work to give others these insights sooner. And by doing so, to give more boys and men the chance to be part of the solution against violence and sexual transgression.
