Because We Love Them

Because the grief is no less devastating when a son is brutalized…

Because a brother can’t foretell the future any better than a sister when it comes to “knowing” what shadowy creep just caught his attention online…

If we can turn the volume down on the male bashing noises for a minute, it would be nice to make sure our sons are made aware of online dating  risks as well.

Because we love them. There shouldn’t be any other reason needed.

If we want to speak all things equal. A young man whose heart and life is every bit as valuable as the young woman we tend to overprotect, is owed nothing less than the same concerns for his safety.

 

 

The following articles are on brutal crimes committed against men through online dating.
