Hat's Off to the Men in Miniskirts in Turkey

I am a little fed up with the amount of man-hating bitchiness I have been running into online of late. I have been at a loss as to what to do next. Then, yesterday, a delightful bright spot in my day was this story about men in Turkey taking a stand against violence against women by donning miniskirts and either marching in the streets or tweeting pics of themselves:

I figured out while still a teenager that the antidote to bad men is not hating all men, it is seeking the company of decent men. A shout out to all the men in miniskirts in Turkey:

Thank you for being a bright spot in my day and I hope you do see gains for women's rights in your country.

I am just very sorry a young woman had to be brutally murdered first.
