The First Problem For All Of Us, Men and Women, Is Not To Learn, But To UNLEARN.

This Gloria Steinem quote is a relevant concept that is so socially attune with our current schema, especially when applied to the article A Message to Women From a Man: You Are Not “Crazy.” This article dives deep into the issue of gas-lighting, a term often used by mental health professionals to describe manipulative behavior that is meant to confuse and mislead people into thinking they are crazy. Sadly, in our mainstream culture we have depicted women as emotionally unstable, crazy, illogical, unpredictable and irrational. This has led to detrimental relationships between men and women, where the power of manipulation has burdened our women into believing that they are not good enough. I encourage men and women to read this article to gain perspective on the issue and to understand how to become aware of their actions, thus hopefully altering or modifying behavior that is hurtful and inconsiderate.
