Starting when they are toddlers, boys and men are consistently and belligerently taught to suppress their emotions.
I'd like to say that this animated gif is funny, or fun, or like kittens. But it's not. Its just the story of male emotional suppression pared down to is bare and brutal essentials.
LET'S FIX THIS! You can join our August 30th ONLINE workshop on Growing Our Kid's Emotional Literacy by becoming a Good Men Project Premium Member. ($20 a year) After which you'll get a whole year of unlimited workshops and benifits. Click here to register the Growing Our Kid's Emotional Literacy workshop on August 30, at 8PM EST.

“Here’s the thing about The Good Men Project. We are trying to create big, sweeping, societal changes—--overturn stereotypes, eliminate racism, sexism, homophobia, be a positive force for good for things like education reform and the environment. And we’re also giving individuals the tools they need to make individual change—-with their own relationships, with the way they parent, with their ability to be more conscious, more mindful, and more insightful. For some people, that could get overwhelming. But for those of us here at The Good Men Project, it is not overwhelming. It is simply something we do—--every day. We do it with teamwork, with compassion, with an understanding of systems and how they work, and with shared insights from a diversity of viewpoints.” ---– Lisa Hickey, Publisher of The Good Men Project and CEO of Good Men Media Inc.
