Shameless Plug

7 April 2010

My friend Chase edits a column series in The Carletonian in which writers explore the question “What does it mean to be a good man?”.  Grounded in the premise that a open, constructive dialogue about masculine identity is invaluable to combating sexual violence, objectification, and sexism, the series hopes to provoke a resassessment of virtues and obligations from a male perspective.  If you ask me, the columns themselves have been somewhat hit or miss, but a worthwhile effort to say the least.

Anyways, as a favor to Chase, I wrote my first and very likely last article for The Carletonian a couple of weeks back.  I chafed at the space restrictions as though they were a sandpaper jock strap, but it certainly seems to have struck a chord with more than a few people.  In that light, I’m sharing it here for you to peruse or ignore at your leisure.

    Hey Hal,
    Just for the record, you’ve always been one of the best men I know. I’m glad I found you on teh interwebs! The pieces about your students are really lovely, and I hope Japan is full of those awesome little moments for you.

    I am respectfully requesting a chatty email. I misses my Halliburton.

    Your article didn’t make it through the DOD firewall… I’ll have to remember to read it later 🙂
