  • Saw this thread posted by a Mod advocating for more men to be genuine and open up to women - and as expected, the idea was ridiculed.

    As another male, I understand this mentality. In the past times we've opened up our soul, in those dire moments, many have unfortunately been ridiculed. Looked down upon, looked as lesser of a man. So we've become hardened. Conditioned by society to live up to the sentiment that 'Boys Don't Cry'.

    But I've just recently learned it doesn't always have to be like that.

    I've personally met this group of females at school recently. We ended up taking some shrooms together one day and if you guys know anything about that d***...it more times then not can bring you to your most honest self, regardless of what you've been conditioned to learn. And there I was....at my most honest self.

    The inner child within me came out...I opened up about fears I would have thought to never vocalize to the opposite gender anymore, opened up about being ashamed to even HAVE certain emotions at times...isn't that some s***? How we look down upon our OWN selves for having emotion?

    Anyway...to my pleasant surprise...I was accepted in my vulnerability. Sympathized with. There also just sumn really nice about the nurturement of a female hearing you vent instead of always talking to the boys...

    tl;dr - It;s good for the soul to have genuine female outlets instead of looking the majority of em as lesser.

  • you’ve seen the light brother women lowkey pretty cool when you not tryna hump em

  • Females are great and I love them but no female can replace having a good male friend. Females just think differently than men. If you’re an emotional person then you’ll probably love having female friends. If you’re a logical/realistic person probably not.

  • Very nice :)

  • Female friends are cool because they set you up with their other female friends

    I'm a both logical but also emotional, so I guess having this mix now of friends is beneficial

    This is almost guaranteed. It's just your job not to f*** it up!

    Anytime I become friends with a group of females I'm f***ing around with at least two of them. I need to get back on that train after this Rona phase

  • never have had one but i can seeing it being good

  • Litty

    that the only legit reason to have female friends

  • Man its like everything, thats why it's wack to generalize people... You just have to search in the right places for the right individuals

  • People miss out on so many good connections by not allowing women to be platonic in their life

    With the way so many men get hurt & the promotion of toxic masculinity the form of memes these days, I understand why so many generalize but man...always felt deep down in my soul that despite the many times I've been hurt, there's no way everyone could be built the same...

  • Yea but they’ll never see you romantically or sexually now

    Well the other thread was about opening up to you significant other

  • Handsome Niqqa

    Yea but they’ll never see you romantically or sexually now

    Is that really true for every single person in the world though?

    Well nothing ever fits everybody. But it’s better to have a mindset fitting of the majority than the minority
