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.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
