We’ve all seen the stories online about men being falsely accused of being creeps and paedophiles. Stop me if any of these sound familiar:
I was sitting on a bench watching my granddaughter on the swings when the police show up to question me because someone reported that I was leering at the children.
I was asked to move seats on a plane because a child was seated next to me.
I was tapped on the shoulder by police while I was taking photos of the beach. Someone thought I was taking pictures of their children.
For most men, any of the above situations would not only be mortifying but would also make us extremely angry to be accused of such a heinous intention just because we have a Y chromosome. This is an awful phenomenon and one that has been written about a number of times, and recently on The Good Men Project, in an attempt to educate people that, surprise, most men aren’t predators.
