The most beautiful thing I have seen in this horrible experience or actually ever, was a day when John had male friends visiting. I heard them say to John “I love you” and he would say it back. He needed to hear this. To feel it. To be in it.
From that day on, I wondered what would happen if men would say that to each other instead of “I am better than you” “Believe in what I believe in” “I am going to beat you”. How different would the world be? How different they would be? Why is it not acceptable to say this? When is it not ok? Is it ever?
