Girls feel depressed, everyone wants to help. Guy feels depressed, "nobody wants to be around someone depressed, deal with it".
Girl posts a picture, everyone tries to flatter her and make her feel good. Guy posts a pic, nobody replies because nobody likes unconfident guys or they just straight up say he's not good looking or picks out everything wrong with him.
You know, guys have feelings too. There's a reason why we turn into cold hearted robots, we're not born like that.

It's not like that all the time though I get where you're coming from. Until a lot of men come forward and show everyone how detrimental the antiquated unspoken rule of "be a man" is, things will continue this way.
If a man cries or is depressed, a lot of his brothers will consider him weak and demean him. There are women who would do it as well. But you're not looking at a reason why plenty of women get support when we state we're depressed--there are plenty of people who feel that we're weak and so our needs MUST be taken care of.
Concerning the guys posting pics, another reason could be that if someone was to give support to the guy, he might take it the wrong way. I've had it blow up in my face ALL the time--and I was simply trying to boost his self-esteem. Not to mention that it seems like women have a "natural" support group where men are "every man to themselves".
And finally, no. The reason you turn into automatons is not because of other people, but because of YOU. YOU chose that path: do not deflect it as if you had no choice.0
