I watched a video recently, where guys talked about how badly women treat them. I learnt that they found it quite difficult to express their emotions. I wondered whether society deems this as 'socially unacceptable,' which is why they feel that they have to suppress this part of themselves, or whether it is naturally rare for guys to show this emotional side of themselves anyway, since they tend to have more testosterone.

Nope. I think independent people want to do things and don't think about asking others for help if it's not absolutely needed. Generally you figure out how to get done what you want to get done on your own. Along the way you tend to get physically stronger and learn many things. It's not an act. You just become strong, the more you try to accomplish.0
What Guys Said
no matter how much society tells men to express their emotions, it ultimately gets used against them. when men do express their emotions honestly and people don't like what they hear, they label it as whiney, complaining, making excuses etc. and are told to just simply "man up" and this when they shut their emotions off.0
Yes it’s called toxic masculinity. We guys are taught to never show emotion, never ask for help and always be the bread winner.
You only need look at family annialhators, men who kill heir families out of shame for failing.0
Definitely have to be strong because it is a very tough world.0
Society hates men right now. Modern societies mainly.0
Guys have been conditioned by society not to show any emotion. Otherwise they're regarded as feminine0

It's definitely a societally programmed thing. You should have seen the way people, women especially, reacted to Kyle Rittenhouse crying on the stand, or Jordan Peterson crying because of the way he was being demonized for trying to help Incels.
Society, and again, women especially, made a point of screeching and howling in laughter at each of those guys for crying. Kyle was recounting the most traumatic moment of his young life; the moments he was backed into a corner and forced to take someone else's life. And Jordan was crying because he was being demonized for giving young men encouraging word.
So yeah... I mean, I absolutely love women and I have great relationships with women, but y'all can be some of the most thoughtless and cruel people imaginable. And it's not even an uncommon situation.
