STATEMENT BY ANGIE KENT

Last week, the Councilor Conduct Tribunal opened the investigation of Jess Glasgow into her behavior during my season of The Bachelorette. I was torn whether or not I wanted to say something. Probably because of the fear of the unknown, which has been conditioned in many women. Then I thought if I didn’t say anything, I thought it would make me an accomplice? Or that I am okay with this type of behavior? Or that I’m always afraid to speak my truth by judgment or by abuse, etc. Or maybe if I ignore it then maybe it will go away? Well, it’s been almost two full years since the event happened, and obviously it hasn’t gone away. What I now consider a blessing.

I continue to see a lot more extremely big game bulls on my ego-fragility-blame ** t all over my TV, in media, social media, and in this case, on my hometown news.

This situation is not just for me. This is what we have been going through as women globally for centuries and I have been silent all my life. I’m sure most of us have!

Before we dig deeper into this, this is by no means an article intended specifically for Jess. I don’t want this to be a chance to piss off the dude even more than he’s ever received. This is an opportunity to denounce unwanted conditioned practices and celebrate the hope for change!

Jess apologized to me right after the episode aired (funny it took the episode to air before I got an apology, but hey that’s life). Am I shocked? No. But I appreciated the apology and thought maybe it was a chance for growth and recognition for him and any other man who didn’t care about that kind of situation when they looked at him. But unfortunately, no. Stay there now, two years later, and blame his multiple disgraceful performances on a montage?

If it has been edited tremendously, then why did I feel so embarrassed and humiliated? Why did the other men on the show seem to have a problem with him? What about the crew? And why did I have fathers, mothers, friends who contacted me saying that it didn’t suit them either? Not to mention the overwhelming amount of messages from women saying that they have had to put up with this kind of behavior from men (and this person in particular) most of their lives. Far too often.

Growing up, I was often told that I was “too much”, or that I should keep quiet and not get so upset about men and their actions or comments … to just get over it. or ignore it. Finally the time has come when I feel like I don’t expect too much from men by wanting them to respect me. Start owning your shit and changing your past conditioning by wanting to do more … less than half ‘.

Women are not collateral damage to the male ego. We know that this is a culture of acquired rights … That we can unlearn!

“It’s good not to know that your behavior is originally toxic due to the dominance, fragility and privilege of white men. But when a whole bunch of people are screaming and standing up, and the men keep blaming the “bad days” or “changes”, maybe it’s time to listen and get the job done inside?

Where is the evidence ? The proof is right in front of you guys !!!!

Remember … if a man cannot accept and respect what I repress, I would rather stay single for the rest of my life! I will never allow a man to come in and fuck with my brotherhood!
