The college victim culture is more than a lifestyle. It’s an industry, and the kids people are calling “snowflakes” are the furthest thing from delicate. Like anyone else, they are responding to the incentives placed before them, and universities offer powerful incentives for being outraged. Victimhood is thriving on campus. Here’s what I think drives it, and what we can do to rescue kids from... Read more of this blog post »

“Acceptance doesn't mean tolerating unhealthy relationships or problem behaviour. In relationships, acceptance has two key qualities. First, it means being willing to recognize that your partner, right here and right now, is struggling too. It means allowing for the possibility that his motivations might be good and constructive, even if it doesn't feel that way. It means not getting caught up in the belief that he's wrong or doesn't care about you, and instead embracing the possibility that he's doing the best he can. He may even be trying to make you happy--but in a way that only makes sense inside the male mind. Acceptance also means embracing the formidable task of empathizing with your partner's struggle when you least want to do so.”
Shawn T. Smith, The Woman's Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment, and the Male Mind

“Women tend to communicate early and often about a problem. Men are more likely to view communication as a tool, and when they see it as the wrong tool for the job, they believe it should be stored neatly in the toolbox.”
Shawn T. Smith, The Woman's Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment, and the Male Mind

“The healthiest relationships have room for both male and female strengths.”
