In the ongoing modern day conversations about misogyny and sexism, we more often hear about predatory behavior directed at women by men. However, men have an important role to play to in ending discriminatory and harassing behavior, and many are stepping up.

On Saturday, @emrazz asked men on Twitter to name an occasion in which they stood up to other men in their lives who exhibited misogynistic behavior.

There's this guy who reminded his father that women and girl's bodies aren't inherently sexual.

There was this astute advice.

Sometimes a physical barrier helps.

Some men need reminders that catcalling is predatory.

There was this man who understood the ways transphobia and misogyny interact to create the monster that is transmisogyny.

This man understood that sometimes talking through a behavior is helpful.

Unfortunately this behavior isn't unique to a certain kind of man or profession.

Some men have stepped up to be wing-men.

Sometimes being a wing-man is subtle.

Sometimes it's not.

Sometimes teachers have to find teachable moments.

And finally, there was this man who helped educate his boss about work-place double standards.

It's important for men to be allies in this fight and say something to other men when they're being inappropriate. If you don't know how to start the conversation, The Guy's Guide to Feminism"The Guy's Guide to Feminism by Michael Kimmel and Michael Kaufman is a great way to start.

More of this in 2019, please.

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
