I grew up in a culture with a heavy distinction between a boy and a man. you weren't a man unless others have deemed you one and I got tired of trying to fulfill other people's expectations. telling someone to be a man only teaches hostility and how to solve problems in an uncivilized ,sometimes violent, matter. "gender roles" is one of those ideals that has yet to die out, many of which have too many stereotypes for my liking.

Yeah this is true.


Worse than that is not being able to help your partner helping you. Supporting each other (which is currently going on here) or better NOT going on here

those two words always sting 'man up', 'be a man'. it sucks when you can only do so much, when your best doesn't meet the expectation of 'being a man'
