So, I was never big on the “Keep Calm” trend from last year, but I just now saw this article, and I’m nearly at a loss for words.  I don’t understand how anyone could have found these shirts funny, let alone paid actual money for them.  What more do people need to see to realize that our society is sick?  That the more individuals strive for equal rights, the more our men seem to be reaching an unprecedented height of violence and misogyny? How do we change this dangerous trend?  I don’t know.  But a good start would be to stop perpetuating the tired line, “boys will be boys,” because at this rate, these boys will never mature into real men.
