Men Crying Over Men?

Two years ago during the presidential election Hillary Clinton was trying to represent the democratic party against Barack Obama. Clinton was probably good for the position, but there was one simple reason why she couldn't get it. That reason is stereotypes.

According to the stereotypes women are emotional people who worry too much, complain too much, and cry too much. On the other hand, men are stereotyped as being objectionable, holding their feelings in, and never shedding a tear.

However, that is changing. The roles are switching. Women are the ones that are expected to hold in their thoughts while the men are eagerly hopping on camera to shed their tears and tell their sad stories. It's pathetic. It's sad. The most horrible part about it is these men are not shedding tears over women. They're not complaining about the actions of women. They're not trying to get the attention of women at all. Instead they are trying to get the attention of the loves of their lives, which are other men. It's nasty to me, but it's the society I live in and I don't understand it. Why are men so willing to cry over other men?

This post was inspired by one of Bishop Eddie Long's accusers. I can't help but to shake my head every time I watch it.
