Stoicism and Masculinity

“Told from a young age that boys don’t cry, many men are restricted by a culture that believes emotional openness and caring for your family are examples of girlishness”, Lola Okolosie asks “what is the cost to boys of our traditional view of masculinity?” http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/07/cost-boys-traditional-view-masculinity-men-son

in the bbc magazine johnny Benjamin also asks what effects masculine cultures is having on young lives http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-26543095 ” Perhaps we need to redefine the meaning of masculinity, stop telling males to “man up”, and start showing them that grown men do actually cry.”
