Why can’t you love more?
The world needs feminism because it helps men as much as it does women. Current societal norms dictate the expected behavior of men and women, creating harmful gender rolls. This week I’ve been discussing navigating masculinity with my dear friend @nickawaiixx, who has given a lot of insight into the struggles of men, especially as a queer person of color who stayed closeted well into high school out of fear. Dear men: people are tired of this machismo anti-feeling bullshit. Show somebody you love them. Humans aren’t programmed to hide their emotions, evolution rewards those that are more expressive and better able to navigate their emotions. Don’t think less of people for crying or being vulnerable. Be yourself, it’s the only way to be truly happy 🌞
