Men around the world are criticised for showing their emotions. It's perfectly ok for them to express anger and frustration but crying, a big no no. Men are afraid to convey feelings of sadness- if they did shed a tear, they would be regarded as weak by the opposite sex. From a young age they are taught to show 'toughness' and not let the world see their fragility. The sad fact is, because more and more men are keeping it bottled inside, not confiding in their loved ones, it has led to an epidemic of high suicide rates which the public doesn't mind accepting. I mean, is it any wonder men commit suicide when you don't listen to them? Women mock men for crying, usually delivering hurtful insults, the popular phrase being 'Man Up'. I would go as far as to say that women are partly to blame when men do commit suicide.
When men attempt to address their gender-specific issues, whether directly, through, talking to a friend, family, partner etc or indirectly via a social networking platform, they are OFTEN met with disgust and ridicule. This has led to them being oppressed. They do not want to appear as weak and unworthy so they will hide away. Not talk about their feelings.
As a society, we need to acknowledge men. We need to open up to them so they can reach out to us. Do not shut them out. Allow them to speak.. and speak freely. Give them a shoulder to cry on, tell them you will be there for them, be their emotional crutch. Men are not robots. They do not possess a switch off button from their emotions- we need to tell them that it's okay to cry.
There is a strong correlation between men's oppressed emotions and the male suicide epidemic. Let's change that. We need to provide men with a platform for them to come forward, have their voices heard, and together we should end this disdain reality that men should not cry.

We live in a world today where pedophilia is prominent. Underage sex occurs everywhere, and in a recent lifestyle survey conducted by Playboy, 74% of men said they would consider pursuing a relationship with a 14 year old child if it was to be made legal.
So what is the reason for men lusting over young girls? Psychologists and Relationship Experts say that older men want to feel young again, they want to re-live their youth, and that is the main motivation for their interest in teens. There is nothing wrong with platonic relationships and friendships between young girls and older men that does not involve sex, but why is that rarely the case?
Any females under the age of 18, are vulnerable, naive and under developed. They do not have the life experience to be able to fully understand and make decisions. They are easily persuaded. Men take advantage of that. Men like to think that they are natural dominators- so they look for prey they can easily control and manipulate. Men who like teenagers are potentially dangerous as they tend to play mind games and know all the tricks of the trade- they would provide the girl with gifts and money in order to sleep with her. In comparison, women who are 25 and over, are usually mature enough to know when a man is trying to manipulate them, this is due to various life experiences we learn as we go through situations. A girl under 18 however will not have such experience. They are usually having fun enjoying going out with friends, having silly crushes on their pop star idols, and going to school/college- they are too young to worry about the psychology of relationships. This is why they would be easy targets for manipulation.
For men, there is no emotional value to being in a relationship with a child. They only associate them with sex. Men enjoy looking at the luminous flesh of a teenager and they just want to 'fuck' them, so to speak. Where do we draw the line? Girls under the age of 18 are still fresh- they lack knowledge of life, they can't see past the 'gifts' and 'unlimited compliments'. They are so easily duped. Any relationship involving an older man and a young girl is exploitative and harmful.
Any man who has an unhealthy interest in a young girl, whether or not they are of legal age (16) or below legal age, is perverted and disgusting. It is a form of child exploitation and tougher laws need to be implemented to ensure the protection of the child. I do not think 16 should be the legal age of consent. 16-17 year olds are still young and vulnerable- any man over the age of 21 who preys on them should be considered a pedophile.

So this is the new norm? What teenagers and young woman in their 20s should inspire to? I'm not even sure if this is a real picture. She is not a role-model. She does not look fantastic. What is so inspiring about surgically enhanced lips?
Young girls see this type of fakery and instantly want to look like that. It's not healthy, it's not normal.
Being super skinny is also not healthy. It's not real.
Real beauty comes from within. Real beauty is confidence- appreciating your flaws, your natural beauty and not wanting to look like someone else.
Most young girls think that a guy will only be interested in them if they look a certain way. It's not true. A decent guy will be attracted to your confidence- not your skinny body or clown inspired look. Also changing yourself to make people like you is indicative of low self esteem.
The important thing is, being heathy, and happy. Starving yourself to look thin and dressing in a certain way just so you can get attention isn't a wise ambition. Beautiful, smart girls will be whatever size they are- they won't care what people think about them, because they naturally exude confidence. They are able to say NO and they can hold their own.
Plastic is NOT fantastic.
Our Father, which Art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
And the power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
