Being kind...

I was back at the George Street Cafe today. A small group of us are planning an event for men who are in recovery, we are talking about how we make the event fun, safe and a place where we can talk about our masculinity. We agreed that being kind to each other was a good starting place for the theme. Then we talked about how banter is really a form of bullying. It get's dressed up as good humoured, but it usually involves one person in a group being picked on by everyone else. If we saw a group of boys isolating and humiliating one member of their group, we'd have no trouble naming it as bullying and challenging it as bullying, but when adult men do it...it's banter.
