Some of my drawings were featured in Carlos Boellinger’s latest animation, which will be entered into a music video contest for George Harrison’s song “What is Life”. The winner will be picked by Harrison’s widow and son, Olivia and Dhani.

The video features animated drawings from several artists, and Carlos has done a great job putting it all together.

Support the #HeForShe campaign

There is no reason not to support the #HeForShe campaign.

The criticisms I have read by commentators of either gender were mostly extrapolations based on specific parts of Emma Watson’s recent speech at the UN. The idea among some critics is that the emphasis on eliminating women’s issues means that the entire movement is unfair to men, and therefore promotes “inequality”.

The problem with this point of view is that women around the world are less fortunate than men. This shouldn’t have to be elaborated upon in the information age, and I encourage anyone in doubt to study global wage differences between genders, the continued practice of female genital mutilation, the timescale of women’s suffrage on a global scale, the number of female members of parliament in other countries, etc.

Watson mentioned some of the issues that are more common among men, such as the low appreciation of paternal efforts, acknowledging that gender equality concerns the empowering of both genders, but only a fool would claim that men deserve priority in the matter. Men have always had priority, be it enforced through politics, violence, religion, or thereby established tradition.

In addition to the above criticisms, a number of self-proclaimed “alpha males” have provided their own comments, most of which consist of personal attacks and logical fallacies. They are not worth addressing in detail, and their authorship is questionable at best, as gender equality does not pose a threat to men.

I wanted to keep this commentary short, because the validity of the cause is obvious. It doesn’t require further elaboration.
