We are lavishing praise upon a man for dating a younger woman who’s chosen to age more naturally, and we’re simultaneously judging her appearance in a negative light with the insinuation that she looks so much older than he does.

Ahh yes, just one of the disgusting double standards in our society. Keanu sounds like a great man and I LOVE your information about Alexandra. Their pairing seems to illustrate that Keanu isn’t scared of smart, accomplished women and I wish more men were that way.

Great article and I totally agree!! Men are able to, and should, step up and become better than the knuckle -dragging neanderthals that some of them are. Then they wouldn’t have to worry about being called out for their behaviour in #metoo.
