We support a man crying, but first you have to figure out if he’s actually doing it or not.
“Thank you so much for introducing me to the subtle and nuanced art of Man Crying™. Your rating chart has really opened my eyes. And all along I thought my husband just had gas pains. Who knew men had emotions? It’s so sweet! “– Signed Ms. Gertrude Bagger, Baton Rouge, LA
A note from the satirist:
Dear Gentle Reader,
This article is intended as nothing other than a frivolous bit of literary entertainment, while, in the most oblique way, encouraging some self reflection in terms of how we both express and witness men’s emotions. It is not my intention to stigmatize in any way, men who express their emotions by crying.
The target of my satire is, in fact, not men or boys who cry, but the people who either can’t imagine such a thing as possible, or who get all freaked out by it. Because, that’s where the silencing and the emotional damage gets done.
Won’t you consider sharing our article? Thanks!
