Bondage

Saturday – Movie Day. Since the new <a href="http://www.jamesbond.com/">James Bond</a> flick hit the theatres, we decided we needed to help line Hollywood's gold-rimmed pockets.
I don't know if I have become more cynnical of late, but I find something within me disagreeing with many things going on in our everyday lives.
I don't like how we treat women. Though I placate myself with the notion that I am there to smooze over the new gadgets and glossy cars, the fact is my purchasing a ticket meant I supported Bond's attitude towards women as well. It just didn't sit too well with me over the duration of the movie.
My tolerance has grown considerably shorter. Even whilst watching Friends, I stay aware that Joey's lifestyle and our laughter sends mixed signals to our children. We loudly proclaim to our sons that sleeping around with women is fine – they want it as much as we males do. The one whispered talk about how a man loves a woman…yadda yadda yadda…that doesn't even so much as put up a fight to the everyday bombardment in the media and our indirect advocating of it.
I'm at a loss and feeling very disenfranchised right now. I am but one standing against what seems to be an unstoppable force. How will I raise my children? How will I teach them? How will I teach me?
