  • This week's vlog is about this Harvey Weinstein thing. It's gotten me thinking about how I raise boys. How do we as a society raise boys? I thought hard, freaked out hard, and made this video. Please, please share this and comment below. Let's start a conversation here.

This is the place where I wear ​all of those hats - and none of them have a flower on them! ;)

    The desire of sex is not the problem, and paralleling it with rape is very misleading. “Even nice guys have the desire to have sex” and your point? Who doesn’t? Sexual desire is natural, not having it would be considered abnormal, hence the existence of urologists. You know what nice guys don’t have? The desire not to force their sexual desires on an unwilling partner. A guy with a little common sense or fear despite having a rape fetish would not act on it. Even “nice girls” have the desire to have sex. SMH.
    Not to say there is anything wrong with being asexual, you do you. And if you’re not asexual than well pleasing tell me you don’t have “desires.”
    But this kind of language makes feminism unpopular and puts men as villains.
    1. Men are not the problem. Gender norms are. It is known that men can be and have been victims of sexual abuse and they are not encouraged to report the way women are. Not to take away from the multitude of unreported cases by female victims.
    2. Sexual abuse is not related to sexual desire. Period. Just don’t.
    3. Moralizing and implying that sexual desire is immoral (the quote) is half the problem.
    4. I have sexual desires for my man, so am I a deviant now?
    5. Consent is consent. And No is bloody No. The subtle slut shaming is frankly put disgusting. If I sleep with the boss, it may be mistake (it might not be), it’s up to me to decide and either way I’ll deal with it. I could naked as a new born babe, still no one has the right to put a finger on me. It’s my body, it’s my temple or my trash, no has the right to kiddie for it unless I’m committing a crime.
    6. Statistically vast majority of men are not rapists (all of whom have sexual desires). But those that are are repeat offenders.
    So disappointed.

    I know that not all men are motivated solely by sex. This is an old fab passed down from generation to the next. We can't achieve equality if we don't have faith in people and if we don't have an unbiased opinion. I know personally a man who I chose to marry and I know his heart well enough. He was not motivated solely by sex. He saw my personality, the things in common with him, the spiritual connection and sex was not the only thing in mind. So I don't believe that "men are solely driven by sex". That's not being fair to men.

    Equality, rights, consent, common sense.....you violated each of those things BIG TIME when you had your boys' foreskin cut off and hung them on your wall. You paint everyone else as a sort of victim of the patriarchy but your boys have started out life as victims.

    While you make some good points in this video I take issue with your closing statement of “one boy at a time”. As a person whose witnessed first hand the effect an abusive woman had on a male friend I feel the ending should be “child or person”. Men are not the only people who cause abuse either physically or sexually. But as I’ve seen, if it is happening to a man people either greet the news with humour or general disbelief...a woman abusing a man...no way...he needs to man up. NO. Do not create a video where blame for abuse seems to be solely focused as a product of men. Make your point but make a balanced point.

    Consent is definitely a newer word. I've been watching a lot of older shows lately, often exclaiming "don't they need consent!?" About children, most of the time. In the olden days, kids were seen as property. In even older days, women were seen as property. Same with black people. So on and so forth. Consent is so much the core of respecting other humans. If you don't have consent, back the eff off.

    I have been binge watching your videos and only disagree with one stance, pornography, because I believe it can be responsibly sourced and vetted, tasteful, and a healthy tool in exploring your own sexuality as a teen and adult. However, I can agree to disagree, and I urge you to run for president in 2020. Please. You have my vote and I will be your first volunteer if I get so lucky, lol. :)

    I have a young son who I have already started talking with him about these things. One question for you to maybe discuss on a video, how do you address human sexual health with your boys? Especially with the saturation in our culture of sex sells. I struggle to keep my son from getting desensitized to things that should be shocking. Our culture likes to keep raising the stakes. Thank you from one fatigued mother to an outstanding and refreshingly Honest Woman!

    A bit sexist, to be fair. To say all men only want "one thing" is really unfair and unjustified. Sex is a biological impulse that all living creatures have. Consider this: "all women only want one thing" or "all blacks only want one thing"... sounds pretty unfair doesn't it? Making blanketed, generalized statements is almost always unfair. As a fellow liberal, the hypocrisy of liberals really hurts our causes. To blame men or boys for womens problems doesn't address the heart of the issues. If we want to solve these, we need to change our approach. The problem is unmitigated power in the hands those who wield it with no checks or balances. I've seen this from both genders as a male nurse.

    Just wanted to drop the name "Harvey Einstein" in the hope that it cannot be unheard. ^^
    But there's a point to the allusion to deeply rooted attempts to make oneself unattractive to filter out the superficial womanizers. Even these days I cannot get myself to play some of the likeability games that I seemingly would have to play to build a nourishing basis. I have experienced how easy it is to attract people who pretend and deceive and through that eventually cause hurt.

    Mamas (and Papas) don't let your boys grow up to be like Harvey Weinstein. One way to prevent this is to drop the "boys will be boys" mantra, used whenever boys or men behave inappropriately. "Oh, he grabbed and squeezed your breasts? Well, boys will be boys!" "Oh, Prince Harry got caught playing pool in the nude? He's just being a lad!" I think not. So much for what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. But yes, it is up to all of us, regardless of our race or gender. Raising well-adjusted, responsible human beings who aren't afraid to call out bad behaviour is our responsibility.

    Extremely patronizing. You are stating your opinions as fact Amy, even Sheldon knows that's something you should not do. You are just describing the way you live your life, and sure that might be a very reasonable way to do things, but you can't absolutely expectfor people to do exactly as you do, which is the impression you give in this video. This video doesn't help really, a all, you are not going to convince anybody with this that doesn't already agree, anybody at all, specially since your arguments are so weak an so badly constructed.

    I have two daughters of 8 and 10 years old. Since I remember, I instill in them that they are equal, in their differences, to men. As well as people of other religious beliefs, other ethnic groups, other nationalities ... Hopefully, when the time comes, find boys as your children! I would have liked to have a son to inculcate exactly what you mention in this video. Thank you for giving voice to a thought that many mothers share.

    For the way you talk, I could understand the way you were raised, it seems that you were really scared as shit and vulnerable, like if someone was trying to play with plutonium or even, if boys were a natural born rapist and try to play and show their plutonium dicks. Well, I don't blame you, this is so north american. But I have to say I'm overwhelmed about this. You know what Mayim, relax, girls like sex too, in fact, no matter if you are a girl or a boy, being hornie is not a crime, it depends about the curiosity, sex is not an alert for a nuclear bombs, or an anthrax attack, your speech in fact encourage the balls hate syndrome, even so, you can erase all the Weinstein, Trump, Kardashian or Sasha Grey in the world, still nature goes raw. So speak through love and respect, not this shitty fear commercial that your father forced you to believe in. Roll a joint or drink a glass of wine.

    Eugenics - calling persons jews because of their genetic heritage, is a false teaching (religion) and idiotic (science). Scripture calls them midianites merchantmen when they sold Joseph to the ishmaelites. But later joseph would once again affirm them to be his brothers, when they saw him in the visage of an Egyptian governor. The point being, your behaviour defines you. Think of all as being jewish, and it being a matter of degree, as in, some have more light in them than others. A lositive correlation between two variables does not imply causality. Jesus said the seed is the word of God. Truth is a light - by hearing, one sees. Weinstein belongs in prison. But because he is labelled "a chosen one" by eugenicists, he is being given a special pass. Theodr Herzl - was he not a Nazi? Isaac noted of Jacob when Jacob came disguised as Esau, that his voice was that of Jacob, but he was hairy like Esau. .. It is who you are on the inside that matters, and not a matter of genetics. But eugenicists, scientists, would say otherwise. There is no "holy land" mentioned in the bible, kjv. .. I should write a book. But would it be published, and by whom? It took centuries before the kjv came to be. And many were put to death for their efforts to make it happen. The war continues..

    Harvey Weinstein is a product of this idea: to have a beautiful woman is a reflection of how powerful and beautiful you are.
    That women want to have sex with beautiful men. If you’re not beautiful then you need to overcompensate with something else.
    Most men use humor and charm. Other men use what they have. Money and power. If you’re a man that doesn’t want to jump through hoops and do a dance for a woman’s attention or affection what else can you do. You can use money and power. Money makes a person in need to what they have to do to get it. When you have the ambition to be an actress and the man that has the control to make or break your career takes an interest in you..... what do you do. This all goes back to what society deeps as valuable. My mother raised me that what you’re capable of and how smart you are, determines your value. The world taught me that beauty determines your value. That beauty equals power. Yes ultimately, what I know and my work ethic determine the ultimate outcome, but beauty gets you to the front of the line. Even to a mans heart.
    This all goes back to how we raise men.
    Mayim if you’re son has a crush on the prettiest girl. And your son is maybe not her esthetic equal.
    We teach boys that funny boys get girls too.
    Harvey Weinstein was raised to work hard so you can become a caretaker and get a pretty wife. Because that’s what women want! So he did. And we liked or took interest in a girl he presented his peacock feathers.

    I have watched many of your videos and as a fellow attachment parent I can find a lot of common ground. Some things are just a bit tricky to me if not a little hypocrite. You (as I ) in this video advocate bodily integrity. Your sons are allowed to decide who gets to touch them (as they should be). But didn't you violate that that right about the second they were born? I'm not religious myself so no, I don't understand an argument as 'yes but that's for my religion'. How does that work? And how do you reconcile this with your sons? Some parents give their babies earrings, I wouldn't they cannot consent to you modifying their bodies for a non medical reason. So however nice this video is, I can't help but feel it's a little unfair.
    Second, as a feminist I also cringe at the notion only boys want to have sex. Girls want to have sex too. As a society we do a great job of denying female sexual pleasure and its about time we stop that. Step one, by teaching our children that girls also have sexual desires as do boys. And they should not be ashamed of those feelings, boys don't have to be! So why our girls?

    I grew up with a father that was constantly talking about sex in front of me and my brother. It was so harmful that I could never trust him near me or my mother. Thankfully nothing bad ever happened to neither of us, but the fear itself caused me to not trust any men. I never commit to a relationship because I´m afraid they may be just like my father. Thank you for the video, really wished everyone would watch it.

    Prostitution has existed for as long as complex societies have. Just like going to the dentist to fix a broken tooth, you may go to an Escort to take care of your needs. In fact, doing so is far better than hooking up with a drunk person. I think every country should follow the examples set forth by The Netherlands and New Zealand, and legalise the selling and buying of sexual services.

    I don't believe it is "patriarchy" that is the problem. Because there are VERY GOOD godly "single fathers" out there. Some very good men have been ripped away from their children because of excessive feminism. One very good indicator of "misogyny" is if that son (or even daughter) does not respect the disabled people in the society. They think that the disabled person deserves to be "punished" in or out of a marriage. Love can exist outside of a "marriage" but it would always be godly sort of love: raggedycottagegarden.blogspot.com/2018/02/godly-love-exists-outside-of-marriage.html

    Wow! The comments on this video are out of control. I'd like to emphasize that there is a difference between pornography and erotica. I believe erotica, the creation and consumption of art that visualizes desire is very healthy and important to ourselves and our culture. And also, though there is an abundance of pornography, there is much less erotica circulating in our culture. I'd also like to recommend a book called Conflict is not Abuse by Sarah Schulman. I think she addresses some of the conflicting opinions on what is consent, what is abuse, and the responsibilities that all people have to take ownership of.

    The horrifying issues we hear in Hollywood are matters of violence and misuse of authority. These rules are cute but irrelevant to the issue. Also it is a logical contradiction to say "period!" after a sentence with a tentative statement preceded by "likely". Finally the phenomenon of sex trafficking in strip clubs is largely a result of corrupt political / government actors developing it for indirect money and power...30 years ago non-consensual employment was not occurring in strip clubs like (I hear) it is today. Like illegal drugs sex trafficking fuels the politicians.

    As much as I agree with nearly everything you say in this video, your use of male-gendered language for a majority of it only serves to add to the growing, unjust fear that all boys and men are potential rapists. Men are not the only people who can rape, and speaking as if they are actively reinforces patriarchy.
    While I don't have personal experience with this subject, I have more than one friend who has been either taken advantage of by women in situations that would be called rape if their sexes were reversed. One of them was drugged in a bar, taken to the woman's car where she raped him. The next day he went back to that bar and asked the bartender if they knew the woman. The bartender said he didn't know the woman, and laughed as he explained that he had seen her spike my friend's drink. A year later that woman came after my friend for child support, and when discussing it with his lawyer, he was told not to bring up the sexual assault as she could easily turn it around on him and claim he had raped her, and would likely win. He agreed to pay child support to her, and eventually was able to get split custody of his son. He loves that kid to death and seems to have forgiven the mother, as they have a good friendly relationship.
    While I'm glad that he's found a way to make a positive out of a negative, it disgusts me that he was raped, and then discouraged from seeking justice simply because the society we live in sees men as the only people who can rape, and women as the victims of this.

    You're dad was a wise man. Men want sex. Lot of it. With lots of women. If they ever invent the "holodeck" men will lock themselves inside one for months and screw every woman they have a FaceBook picture of they are "friends" with. Yes, it's true. And we'll do all the things that we have fantasized about doing to you. Much of which will involved you naked with your other friends in various scenarios and positions. Yep, all true. But for you to then say this somehow makes men turn into Harvey? And that women and "queers" need special attention? What the fuck is wrong with you. No. No. People be it gay or having a dick or vagina should all be treated the same in the same unbiased way in shown respect until they show otherwise they don't deserve it. And that should not be dependent upon them belonging to a this-or-that class but on an individual bases. Fuck, the problem with an "educated" person like you Bialik is that you don't see people but classes. Individuality is lost and differences are really erased. Try as desperately as you do to prove how smart you, you prove simplistic and ignoring of nuanced diversities of our humanity in forcing your world order of "equality" with this whole big bad boy "Patriarch" to slay. As a wise old Greek once said the "worse form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal." And that is what you are doing: trying to make things more equal by just clumping different things (people) into terms like "female" and "queer" and saying they deserve to be treated better. Better than what? Or more to the point who? Hmm... Doesn't sound like "equality" to me. How you went to men and sex to that fucking stupid conclusion requires a certain level of crazy stupid that I just don't have. Me wanting to fuck all four of my sister's best friends-at the same time-doesn't mean I would rape them or think less of them or want to hold one back from even being say a delusional neuroscience graduate thinking her mostly no-shit commentary are insights punctuated by astounding leaps of illogical conclusion. It just means we as guys are horny fucks that love to fuck and can have a discriminating mind to really loath a person, regardless because they are female or "queer" and that I don't have to go out of my way with the pretense of being nice to them when they're really assholes. Do you get it Ms. PhD? All these variables are not correlatively link. You can be gay and female and a Republican with a nice personality and I cannot stand your political views but respect your right to express them and still want to fuck you despite our sexual misorientations and not once thinking about raping you. Or you can be an obnoxious egomaniac whose lack of common sense is a slappable offense but who I would still respect her right to being stupid but nonetheless not value her the same way as another female with better logical reasoning abilities. And... And this is the clincher... Still not once having this mythical "Patriarchal" impulse to rape. You seriously have some fucked-up sex and bigoted gender issues going on. You should look into that.

    Mayim has answered the question, “will your boys be like Harvey Weinstein?” She didn’t need to involve any other topic other than this. We already know she is an activist for equality so why do we need to beat her down for not including it in this video?
    At no point did she say women aren’t capable of this, she was simply addressing current events.
    The video was direct and answered the question concisely, nice one Mayim 👏🏻

    Yeah mostly all men want sex, even nice ones that's true. But I would argue more women would action sexual desire if they we're more tune with their sexuality, and as the gender divide between social expectations and norms in relations sex becomes less over time. I actually think without the influence of these social norms you would find most women and men to be almost equally horny.
    And okay even though I said a lot of women aren't" in tune" with their desires or whatever it's obviously not true for every more reserved woman as there are a lot of people, both women and men who just do not have strong sexual desire. Which is totally okay.
    I think the thing I learnt about being a horny woman and relating to a lot of horny men, is to distinguish the sex brain to the rational brain. We often in the background have the sex brain ticking away making regular situations lewd (especially in our modern hyper-sexualised society), but it doesn't mean we'd actually act on it with our rational brain. For a woman who seems more sexually reserved, to hear some guys perspectives on sex must seem like a poor reflection of their character, but you have to consider that a lot of decent men have an active sex brain but won't act on it rationally.
    The same guy who might fantasise about his co-workers naked in his spare time, might also genuinely love and respect women in his everyday interactions. The ones that you're talking about that you have to be more careful for are the ones whose sex brain is ultimately more genuine part of themselves than their rational brain, and therefore the motivations for sex will always win over respect for the opposite gender. For other men they might have an active sex brain in the background but are ultimately of rational mind and principle, and those values will win out in the end. And for a lot of men they are a mixture of both depending on the situation , as no person, male or otherwise tends to be that simple.
    But I just don't think you should necessarily equate "all men wanting sex" as an automatic negative thing.
