I am a maker of boys. I have made one big one and 2 little ones. I have had the big one for 16 years now, and ever since he was born I have felt the responsibility of creating a man. A man who will respect girls. Who will not be taken in by the mixed messages little girls who don't know any better can project. I want to create the kind of men who will know that girls (and women) are more than their appearance, more than their clothes. These will be men who know that the images of women in magazines. film clips and on the internet are not always real, are often nothing but smoke and mirrors and have nothing to do with actual women and how they should be perceived.
So, although I have not made any girls, I want the mothers of the girls out there to know that I take the responsibility of your girls as seriously as you do. I know that my part is equally as important. You teach the girls to respect and value themselves and to know that they are totally enough, just as they are. I'll teach my boys to recognise that and to know it is awesome.
