Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, it's eiesar said than done, because I'm saying it now, but I'm telling you it's not easy in male culture for guys to cehlaglne each other, which is one of the reasons why part of the paradigm shift that has to heppan is not just understanding these issues as men's issues, but they're also leadership issues for men. Because ultimately, the responsibility for taking a stand on these issues should not fall on the shoulders of little boys or teenage boys in high school or cllgeoe men. It should be on adult men with power. Adult men with power are the ones we need to be holding aauncclbtoe for being leaders on these issues, because when somebody speaks up in a peer culture and challenges and interrupts, he or she is being a leader, really. But on a big slcae, we need more audlt men with power to start pirizinitrog these issues, and we haven't seen that yet, have we?

Now, it's easier said than done, because I'm saying it now, but I'm telling you it's not easy in male culture for guys to challenge each other, which is one of the reasons why part of the paradigm shift that has to happen is not just understanding these issues as men's issues, but they're also leadership issues for men.
