Guys, I'm sorry for the struggles you have.

SweetHomicidalQueen

Men, I know I'm no male but I know you guys have it just as hard as us females. You have pressures to keep everything inside, to never cry, to be the breadwinner, to pay for a date etc.

I was listening to a song and it was talking about how he wouldn't ever drag his wife into a problem because it's expected of him to solve it alone.

Guys, I'm sorry for the struggles you have.

I was very upset over this song honestly and guys, I don't think you all hear this enough.

Go ahead and cry.

Watch whatever porn you're into, even if you're in a relationship.

You don't need to be 'chivalrious', just be kind.

You can ask for help, it doesn't make you weak.

You are a knight, you are a warrior, you are a king.

You're amazing in your individuality.

You can wear pink.

It's okay to be bi-curious.

You can be straight but still find other guys attractive.

It's okay to be gay.

Guys can get raped too.

Guys can be sexually harassed too.

Guys can show moments of weakness, but that doesn't make them weak.

You're living. You occupy space and you have mass. You know what that means?
You matter.

Guys, I'm sorry for the struggles you have.

I just want to say I'm sorry for how pressured all of you guys must feel.

Guys, I'm sorry for the struggles you have.

    Good take - It is definitely changing for the better even in my lifetime I can see it - 30 years ago this take would have been laughed at, dismissed as hippy piffle now it is filed in the emotional empowerment drawer for men with all the other supportive articles - There will always be a group that will say that real men don't cry etc but I just say to each their own and they probably have views on real women as well - As I said on a lot of occasions as long as you don't hurt/abuse/neglect yourself or anyone else that is okay with me but that said there has to be growing room for those men that literally grow in my eyes by allowing themselves to express themselves. To me real strength is how you express your emotions not burying them.
    In fairness I don't feel pressured as a man - I feel the same amount of pressure as any human being with circumstances deciding the extent of the pressure I am subjected to as an individual and hopefully I will be able to cope and adapt to them. I definitely regard it as an individual rather than what I am. To class myself as a man, white, irish, middle aged , single etc and say the pressure is because of that is a waste of time and energy in my view. Challenges will constantly appear in life and all your energy should be focused on them and how to overcome, adapt to them. For some a good cry is one of the coping mechanisms.
    Is this still revelant?

    "Tough guys wear pink" is I think what we got from this

    Thank you, if only more women would feel that way that would help close the gender gap a little. We're not just all pigs.
  • Mustachekitteh
    I had a very patriotic song playing in my head while reading this take. :D

  • Clovy_Ree
    Nice take
    I agree! I know a male victim, it's pretty messed up how people look at it
  • heavensgift2girls
    Thanks. I appreciate when a woman can recognize us guys have problems just like they do.
  • joeb73
    thank you for your kind words. they are hart warming and encouraging to some who feel no one notices
  • ThisDudeHere
    Well actually some of those guys were not attractive.
    • πŸ˜‚ fully agree. Idealistic shit that doesn't work in real life. Then a guy still had to have a personality to compliment their looks. Looks alone won't get a guy anywhere. In fact some of the most beautiful souls are more on the virgin side than anything else. Beautiful doesn't equal attractive.

  • Transigence
    I appreciate the sentiment but your list of perceived male issues shows that you have no idea what our issues really are.

    girls like to be the center of the universe , girls think they only have feelings. well , guys have feelings too. guys are supposed to be always strong. are we made of steel?
    • Well no, bitches think they're the only one with feelings. Women know everyone has feelings.
      Also, there's many girls who DONT like to be the center of everything. Those who do are generally people I try not to associate with.
