1. We laugh, we cry, we hurt.
“Men have feelings. We laugh, we cry, we hurt. Please be aware of this and treat us with the same dignity that you wish to be treated. Don’t assume that we are giant uncaring boulders, and definitely don’t tell us to man up if we share our problems or (god forbid) cry.”
2. Sometimes we actually need to talk about our feelings, too.
“That sometimes I actually need / like to talk about my feelings.”
3. We don’t have the emotional support system that women do.
“I don’t know any man I could cry to or just be with if I’m feeling down and desperate. Sure we can relate, and we can complain to each other.”
