Today I asked Seven Star if boys cried all the time when he was growing up. He was initially confused. Then I explained how strange it was for me to see the boys crying at the drop of a hat here in Korea.
He said there is an expression, “A man can only cry three times in his life: when he is born, when his child is born, and when his father dies.”
I figured as much. I am some strange sort of feminist: I want women’s rights, but I celebrate the differences. I want everyone to be able to express themselves. But for God’s sake. Why does being sensitive to others have to mean being a total wuss? (and they’re not sensitive to others) Be a man. Women have to be men all the time. We have to shoulder the weight and responsibility of the world. And you don’t see US crying all the time. We DO WHAT THE FUCK WE HAVE TO DO.
