    Why does society teach us that men have to be tough and unemotional? Where do all of these beliefs come from?

    I think it stems from the old school way of thinking, it actually has gotten better.  But I can remember when the thinking is no man cries, and the wife stays home with the kids.  I don't believe that, but I think people should be theirselves reguardless. Men that keep their feelings in too much, it is hard on the heart, and overall stress.

      Absolutely right, well thought out. It is hard on the heart.
