Dear Dr. Stephens,
I wanted to take the opportunity to write this letter as an expression of gratitude from MenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s News Daily, and on behalf of the many men and women who have been inspired by your efforts to put forward the new academic discipline of male studies.
The new discipline, brilliant in concept and bold in its promise for the future, is a singularly unique initiative on behalf of men and boys, and indeed on behalf of Ã‚Â human beings in modern society. Its implications are as far reaching as our collective hopes for a better world.
As I continue to watch the small media firestorm that has erupted from the conferences mere two hours of speaking before only a few hundred people, I am stunned an amazed by the unprecedented phenomena that has unfolded as a result. For the first time in modern history there is actually a serious public debate on what we need to do to address the concerns of men and boys.
The magnitude of what this means cannot be overstated.
MenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s News Daily Publisher Mike LaSalle perhaps put it best recently when he said the following. Ã¢â‚¬Å“MND has been host to a boatload of men eternally lost at sea. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re the first dry land we have seen in eight years.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Allow me to apply those apt words past our readership to an entire culture of men and boys, adrift not for eight years, but for fifty.
It is understood that there were many involved in this conference, and that there are many who work toward our shared and just goals. Their work goes on around us all the time.
But we would be seriously remiss not to offer you our public thanks, for a job well done, and for standing out as an inspirational example of what one man can do with unrelenting dedication to a higher ideal.
With best regards and high expectations for the future,
Men’s News Daily
