OK guys. Time to “man up,” as they say.
You may have been drunk. She may been drunk.
You might have gotten her drunk, or stoned, or whatever. Maybe deliberately, for one exact purpose.
You may have thought it was harmless fun, some kind of game.
You may have been trying to prove something to your buddies.
Or to yourself.
You might have had a plan, or it might have happened in a moment when you let your gonads overrule your brain.
You might not even be aware that what you did was hurtful.
You’re still on the hook.
Look back, and think carefully.
And look at how many of the women in your timelines are saying “#metoo.”
Own it, guys.
My name is Skip Mendler, and I owe some women an apology.
(And if you’re man enough to do it, take this text, replace my name with your own, and put it where everyone can see it.)
