Terry Crews Delivers Powerful Testimony Against ‘Toxic Masculinity’

Article here. Excerpt:

'With most of the media’s eyes trained on the Supreme Court Tuesday morning, actor and former NFL player Terry Crews quietly delivered a powerful condemnation of “toxic masculinity” on Capitol Hill.

Crews, a star of the sitcom Brooklyn 99 who is also known for roles like the Trump-esque President Camacho in Mike Judge’s Idiocracy, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to make the case for legislation known as The Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, as proposed by Rise founder Amanda Nguyen. And he was speaking from personal experience.

“I am an actor, author, former athlete, advocate and a survivor of a sexual assault,” Crews said by way of introduction. After a year in which many powerful abusers in Hollywood were finally held to account and the mostly women who spoke out against them were subject to often vicious backlash, Crews said, “I wanted these survivors to know that I believe them, I supported them and that this happened to me too.”

... simply mandates that hospitals preserve "rape kits" for many more years than they do now. Personally I see nothing wrong with that at all.

What moved me to run this though was the fact that the notion of "toxic masculinity" is now being paddled on Capitol Hill. That is significant. Though it comes as no surprise. If the Congress can have ding-a-lings like Kirsten G and The Hildebeast in it, I suppose anything's possible.
