This is so great. I felt uncomfortable with the hashtag as well. And I think you are very right. I think we //do// have low standards for the men in our community, we don’t expect very much of them. Perhaps because they haven’t given us any reason to..or perhaps they don’t aim better because we don’t give them any reason to? But that in itself is problematic, because I shouldn’t have to inspire the men in my life to be better to women, they should be better, period.
I find myself expecting more of non-Muslim men and shrugging at Muslim men that don’t meet those expectations, because when I call out their actions as discriminatory, they laugh and tell me to ‘stop being so serious’ or make some other joke out of it.
