As a man I don’t want to be right, I want to get it right.
In a conversation with Chris Pelch, husband, father and full-time graduate student, we learn that he thinks men are often characterized as macho, hard-headed, and stubborn and there is a good reason for this portrayal. He sees that many men dig in their heels when it comes to their opinions. But Chris thinks it’s a mistake for men to ignore the perspectives of others. He believes men should not bulldoze their way forward. Chris shares:
- If we truly want to be a man we need to view women as equals.
- As men, we must be willing to listen to facts that are contradictory to what we want to believe, accept them, and adjust our perspective accordingly.
- Men need to be willing to get it right instead of just wanting to be right.
