Gentlemen, the Media and Government Regulation

i don't need a woman to tell me how to become a gentleman, for I believe that I have always been as much a gentleman as she is a lady. I have always respected women, and it comes naturally, for I was raised and taught by my Mother and my Sister. I never knew my Father, but I had a pretty good and decent Step Father, so I have nothing to complain about in that respect. All of my school teachers were women, except of one part of a year when I had a male substitute. In my adult and working life, I worked only for male supervisors, and during my military training all of my instructors were men. I never say much difference between the various people that have had an affect on my life, except for my wife. She is something special.

Maybe what we all need is a little more courtesy.

“Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.” This quote from President Theodore Roosevelt has specific relevance today as the question of how women are treated by men in the media has recently taken center stage. As women, we can justifiably complain about the names some male media personalities have called women. But an underappreciated way to encourage better treatment is by praising those men who already demonstrate respect through their words and actions.

One organization for women, the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), is doing just that...
