Something even more different: Crying.

I’m a rather manly guy if I was to say so myself. I don’t understand the concept of “metro-sexuality” and “being in touch with your feminine side”. I prefer wearing jeans, I laugh loudly and sometimes hit my friends a little hard as a joke, I tell rude/obscene jokes, don’t care about having an unkempt beard in public and so on. I’m not saying that this is the definition of “manly”, I’m just saying that I see myself as such. If people like the “metro-sexuality” and like being in touch with your feminine side, all the more power to you. Now to the real point.

What is so wrong about crying if you are a man? Of course, I might be slightly out of touch with reality by now, and it might be more widely accepted now. Which is also a little why I’m writing this.  You see recently my girlfriend broke up with me. She was the kind of woman which you fit so well, that it was a one in a million fluke. At least I thought so. So she was/is the love of my life. Of course that can change, since I’m still not old enough to be able to say that definitely. So when she broke up with me, I cried! Sometimes I’m still on the verge of crying, or at the very least really sad.

That same day I had an important meeting I had to go to, and we had broken up just an hour or two before so I really didn’t feel up to it. I also kept hoping that I wasn’t going to start crying when outside. Of course I didn’t but I started again  5 minutes after I had returned home.

But now that I am sitting here with a my head a little more clear. WHY? Why do we guys care so much about not crying in front of each other? And is it really so wrong for guys to cry? We all have feelings, no matter if you are male or female. So why not actually express them?

Let’s try and have a discussion? What do you think about crying, both as females and males? Should a guy cry, or should he always try not to? Is there a limit to what we should cry about? Do you cry when you get moved? Do you cry when something hurts? Or do you never cry? So what do you think?

Guys or girls! Men or women! Come in, give me a comment what you think, write a blog post about it, tease me, flame me, troll me, bully me, whatever. Just give me your thoughts about crying! Doesn’t even have to do with male’s crying, just crying in general! Come on, I challenge you to a discussion!

Something different: Why mother? Why father?

July 29, 2012 at 12:50 pm (General) (, , , , , , , , )

First thank you for all the people who liked my short little writing practice yesterday. I was trying to go for something a little fun and suspenseful and I hope I succeeded.
But today I was thinking of something different. The topic is “Dangerous Parents”. No I’m not talking about parents who have killed or robbed sometime in their life, but parents that are “dangerous” towards their children. You see, I really don’t understand how parents can treat their children like they are their plaything or the like.

You see recently I read an article about mothers that took pictures of their children and sold them to a pedophile (yes it’s in Japanese, so sue me). It was 6 mothers that had  taken pictures of their children ranging from 7 months to 8 years old and then had sold them to a pedophile. I’m not going to go into why they did it, because I feel like it doesn’t really matter. I’m not even going to say that they are evil people, since I don’t even believe in that kind of thinking.

But I do wonder what they were thinking about? I mean, how can parents be so cold to their children. Do they even know what they are turning their children into when they treat them like this. I’m not saying that this is the worst thing I have read or heard about, nor that Japanese is the worst offender when it comes to treating their children like crap. I mean everyone has heard of Fritzel by now right?

Our children are not “things” to be messed with. Parents have their duty to raise their children properly, not to hurt them! We are supposed to protect them, not destroy them. That is why “we”, the society, is sometimes removing children from their parents. Children are our future and our hope. It’s our duty and privilege to raise them and do our best in giving them the correct tools so they can make their own “correct” decisions. Not to use and abuse them as you see fit!
