there is a lot of very tough gay guys as well /with us guys it all in the mind its an act we do every thing a girl does yes and we do cry
Guys don't HAVE to be tough but if you aren't other guys will mess with you.
Have an opinion?
notice how guys voted yes while girls voted no? this is because man were forced to be manly and not have feelings while they grew up (''crying is for girls''). while when girls find it cute when guys show them their sensitive and emotional side. ofcourse you should know how to be tough and strong in some serious topics. SHOWING UR FEELINGS OR BEING SOFT doesn't MEAN UR NOT MANLY OR GAY OR WRONG
But it's not only about what girls want. Men are always the target of violence that women don't have to deal with (yes they have their own problems). If a guy is weak walking around somewhere he is a target for being mugged or worse.
@Trolloween yes there's always some competition between guys and the weak are the target/prey but u should be very unlucky to experience that kinda stuff :))
It's impossible to go through school and not learn to not be weak. Also csn you imagine going to prison as the weak shy guy? You'd be raped. But overall I agree guys can be sensitive, it's just a problem with the extreme examples. Every man cries when his dog dies or feels emotional at a brave loyal dog story.
True but by this point most of us we put them up young and we reinforced and reinforced until we aren't exactly that we don't know how to take them down
I'd say a fair proportion of the population has to be, or else we'll be completely defenseless against crises, panic during them with no one to calm us down, and all be afraid to walk the streets at night with no one to make us feel safe.I won't hold it against a guy who fails to develop a tough mindset, but I think it's something worth encouraging. I actually think it's worth encouraging to both males and females alike.
I also think it reduces violence which might seem counter-intuitive to some, but I'm talking about mental toughness -- the ability to be a "bigger man" and let some things slide to avoid an unnecessary fight. If people are weak and controlled by emotions like anger, a person may strike another out of blind rage without being able to calmly think about it as a tougher person would be able to do.
I'd define mental toughness as the ability to make good decisions even in the most challenging situations (ex: being able to calmly escort people to safety), and weakness as the inability as a result of being intoxicated by negative thoughts and feelings (ex: panicking in a fire and then just getting you and others killed).
Men can have their emotional moments sometimes. Like me. I'd burst out in tears whenever I saw animals being tortured or failed in a relationship or being mistreated by a girl. That's natural. Our tears are made for that.
Why would you have to be tough. What is wrong with being a lttile sensitive.
Depends on your definition of tough. Both guys and girls should be mentally & emotionally tough.
Physical yes. I guess most girl want a guy who can protect her n with who she can feel safe with
Yes. Everyone should be as tough as possible. It is s competitive advantage in our society.
Absolutely.You should never strike doubt in the hearts of your fellow men.
If we are considered the Protectors, then YES!
Not all the time.
You don't look tough.
Your question was "Should guys have to be tough?" and not if I am tough. Also there is a difference between physical toughness and mental/psycic toughness.
