"Bonfire of Patriarchy" in Huffington Post

"This is not a women’s issue. It’s a human issue. As a man, 
I am committed to ending sexual assault, not just 
because I have women in my life that I love but because 
it’s crippling our ability to create a healthy society 
for all, including men. 
Once powerful men are comfortable taking 
advantage of women sexually, they become prone to many other kinds of abuse as well.
So what we must now go through, on the cusp 
of the dawning of a new era beyond the patriarchy,
 is witnessing the terrible trail of trauma that 
lies behind some of the most powerful and respected men in the world.
The silence must be broken fully so that it really 
becomes clear that we simply cannot allow this any more."
