Do you see the good in men? The good in your fathers, husbands, and sons?
Many of the men in our lives don’t ask for recognition, they live according to their values providing for their families and strengthening their communities. Unfortunately, the values embodied by the men we should honor have become a target for denigration by those who push the division of identity politics. This mindset has infected the media, Hollywood, and marketing departments alike.
You may remember Gillette’s ad campaign promoting this new narrative that masculinity is somehow “toxic” in nature, a notion that blames men for society’s ills. However, at 2ndVote, we noticed one company pushing back publicly to say, “We see the good in men.”
The Égard Watch Company (3 – Neutral) released a powerful video response reminding viewers: Are not men brave? Are not men heroes? Are not men protectors? We invite you to watch the ad Égard’s CEO and founder made to push back against the negative narratives on men and masculinity.
At 2ndVote, we see the good in men as well and want to show our appreciation for them. We also want to commend companies who aren’t buying into liberal corporate activism, but are taking the positive route by staying neutral and applauding the strong, brave, and courageous men in our lives.
As we near Father’s Day, 2ndVote will be collecting stories about the men, fathers, and sons in your family. We invite you to share how the men in your life have upheld the values that we honor. Please use the form below to submit your story below about how a man in your life has embodied “the good in men.”
Our goal with this project is to celebrate what men do for our families and our communities, and we will be posting your stories over the next few weeks. On Father’s Day, 2ndVote will gift a first edition V1-Gent Égard Watch to a deserving man selected from our stories as a token of appreciation for the example he provides.
Follow these links to read some the contributions from our readers. Stay tuned as we will be updating this section regularly over the next few days.
Thank you to all who submitted their contribution. We will be publishing many of these stories over the coming days, so please continue to check this page.
