Can #Mentoo support #Metoo?

Why can’t #Mentoo help #Metoo?

Why can’t we have fair laws?

Since when does consent turn to rape,

Just because a relationship has gone sour?

 

Is it ok to deny any person the right to go?

Their right to leave, their right to choice and the right to say no?

It takes living with love, commitment and caring to make a happy marriage,

And marriage with coercion is behaviour our society should not encourage!

 

Why can’t #Mentoo support  #Metoo?

Why can’t we have fair laws?

Since when does consent turn to rape,

Just because a relationship has gone sour?

 


The #Mentoo and #Metoo movements both have some goals in common.

  • The right of people of all genders to free personal choice.
  • The right of every individual to say no.

I write this poem in support of fair and gender neutral laws so that the #Mentoo movement works with #Metoo movement.
