I was not amused.

You see, I am trying to raise feminist sons. Not emasculated boys who cannot feel comfortable in their own skins. I want them to grow into men who will respect women. And the lilEinstien’s question was a fair one given the media and social influences in our society that lead him to question what makes a person good or bad while he is also considering the larger social constructs of the kind of false-beauty as he sees it on tv and in the movies in contrast to the beauty he sees in the people he loves and cares about in our circle of loveys.

Earlier this week, I heard the story of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman who killed himself after discovering that his roommate and a friend had set up a hidden webcam and streamed live video on the internet of Tyler having sex with a man. His roommate Dharun Ravi had tweeted a month before that he found out his roommate was gay and had also invited people to watch the live video via a link that he also tweeted. The webcam was turned on remotely from the room of Ravi’s friend Molly Wei. Both are currently charged with invasion of privacy, but is it enough?

I admit that sometimes I let my emotions get the best of me (duh) and sometimes what I write comes across differently than I meant. I knew that my post yesterday would push some buttons. Surprisingly, all of the feedback I got on the blog or facebook was positive. I did however have a conversation with a friend that concerned me a little bit.

It’s no secret that I’m doing a lot of things differently in my life these days. At the beginning of the school year, I started meditating every morning. For me, that means I have at least 10 minutes of stillness every day. I also go to yoga regularly, in fact this month I’ve been 17 times. That means I get a lot of quiet time to think.

There’s no question that 2010 was all about trying new things for me. I probably took more risks and tried more new activities in 2010 than I had in the 37 years prior.
