I’ve heard Man apologize ... for war, pollution, crime, “machismo.”
However, in my dreams, I also see Woman saying to Man: "I accept your apology, and in return I apologize for manipulating all those things that you dominated. In equal partnership, we created the dark side of the world and human nature. It has afflicted us in different ways but in equal measure. Sorry for projecting the evil onto you; sorry about a lot of things.
The gender illusions we created together in unconscious collusion, blinded us both. Seeing beyond those illusions, it’s clear that women are far more powerful and men far more vulnerable than our illusions permitted us to see.
I accept the politicized male perspective as equal to the politicized female perspective, and I invite you to speak your piece with my blessing. Afterward, let’s vent and laugh and cry and negotiate together."
- Loving men enough to offer both accountability and compassion,
- Respecting women enough to offer both compassion and accountability
The goal ultimately is an equalist movement that combines the mirrored concerns of men and women under one gender-neutral banner.
Only then can the gender politics of the future be built upon a healthy foundation of fairness, forgiveness, love, truth and balance.
David Shackleton, thinker, writer
“Tim Goldich has a clear and profound message of real equality between men and women, which he delivers with confidence and eloquence. His notion of ‘it all balances out’ offers us a genuine hope and vision of an end to 50 years of gender rancor and resentment.”
Karen Straughan "GirlWritesWhat" vlogger, speaker
"Tim Goldich is an incredibly deep thinker. I’ve never seen anyone so balanced and contemplative and yet so able to hold a room rapt as he delivers his profound message of gender reconciliation.
If there is to be a future of peace between the sexes, it will be one where men and women come back together in the way Tim envisions – in love, healing and acceptance of our gendered imperfections and strengths.”
Dr. Warren Farrell, author, educator, thought leader
"In Loving Men, Respecting Women, Tim Goldich describes how listening would work if both men and women listened to each other. And how balance might look once both men and women have completed the process."
David Lindgren, co-founder of the ManKind Project
"My friend and colleague Tim Goldich posits the position that a cultural revolution in our thinking is necessary to correct the imbalance in our belief system regarding the relative positions of men and women in our world."
I look forward to hearing from you!
