Men.

shadow-writer:

There have been men.
There are men.

Sweet talking,
sweet smelling,
tousle haired men
with Light Brite smiles
and knee deep dimples.

Men with rough hands
and soft hearts.
Quick witted,
wise cracking,
whip smart men.

Men who write,
men who read,
men who can stroke
a fret board and
make it cum.

Men who set me on fire,
who set me off course,
who set me up for a fall.

There have been men.
There are men.
Yet always, there was you.
There is you.

Always, there will be you.

Emily Bazelon, author of Sticks and Stones, talks to Terry Gross about teens’ capacity for empathy:
“We want to think that empathy is this natural quality we all have, and in fact, almost everyone is capable of empathy. But there are these moments in adolescence where kids freeze out these feelings. I spent a lot of time with some of the girls who were bullying Monique [who is profiled in the book], and in moments it chilled me to listen to how dismissive they were in talking about her. But in other reflective moments they would say things like, ‘You know, I see that she’s walking down the hall with her head hanging down and really doesn’t have as many friends as she used to have.’ So it wasn’t that they were incapable of empathy, it was much more that they were in a culture in which they were being encouraged to be cruel to another kid to enhance their own status instead of really letting their feelings of empathy for her have an outlet.”
