When Hate Backfires

This has been such a busy month! Between festival events, line edits for Stolen, and working on the first draft of Broken, my free time has been very limited! But you know, I always enjoy coming back to take part in the
We Are The World Blogfest” at the end of the month. It’s a great way to remind myself that there are indeed good things going on in the world, even if it’s hard to see them.

We are the World: In Darkness, Be Light

You may have heard about a particularly ridiculous Twitter post that went viral this month. It was a picture of Daniel Craig wearing a chest brace to carry his baby around. It was freaking adorable, but this person decided that it was a sign of being emasculated.

Twitter exploded. But not in the way that you might expect!

Such a disgusting comment brought out some truly incredible backlash.

The comments on that post now are filled with dad’s posting pics with their own babies, many of which admitting that they miss the times when they could carry them around. It’s absolutely beautiful to go through and see all the positivity that comes through, and even several brands hopping in to thank the parents for sharing the photos.

It’s a beautiful example of how toxic masculinity is turned on its head. We live in a time when dads should be allowed to be supportive, nurturing parents without having to deal with constant vitriol. It makes me happy to see this kind of toxicity pushed down.

Seriously if you get the chance, take some time this Friday and enjoy reading through all of these brilliant comments. I promise they will renew your faith in humanity!
