I immediately lose respect for any man that cries around me. Period. I don’t care if your entire family was massacred right in front of you. I don’t care if you lost every dime of your money in the stock market. I don’t care if you walk in on your home boys running a train on your wife. I don’t care if your dick just got chopped off. I better not see one single tear. Because, at that point, not only are you a man with no dick, but you are also crying about it. You a bitch now.
What’s really sad, is how men try to compensate for their sadness by being overly aggressive. Niggas think they get a pass for successfully covering up their sadness with ridiculous amounts of anger. I’m sorry to say this, but we see right through you niggas. Give it up. While I do admit, I would rather see a nigga flipping tables, throwing chairs and punching holes in the wall than a nigga with tears running down his face. I would feel extremely uncomfortable to sit in a room with either. At the end of the day, both of ya’ll are bitch made in my eyes.
Personally, I hold these same standards to women as well. A lot of women think men look down on them, to a certain extent, because of the natural gap in physical strength. That may be partially true in some cases, but the main reason men feel superior to women is because women are known to be emotional. They are especially known to cry. Emotions create the allure of weakness. Weakness is hard for me to respect.
This isn’t even strictly a standard I place on adult males/females. The application of this “no crying” standard begins at age 10. If you are 10 years or older, there is no need for you to cry about anything. Ever. Kids are probably the most emotional beings on earth, which is probably why I hate them so much. I can see how that may seem like a harsh standard to place on a kid, but that’s around the time I had my last cry. And I can honestly say that learning to control my emotions from such a young age has greatly benefited my life.
Compared to the average person, I handle psychological trauma extremely well. A lot of people see my “lack” of emotions as unnatural, weird, crazy, robotic etc. I think that this level of control gives me an advantage. I don’t purposely break things that I later regret breaking. I don’t say things that I later regret saying. I don’t make situations worse out of pure frustration.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I’m completely emotionless. I feel all the same things you feel. The only difference is, you can’t gauge how I feel by the way I act. You’ll only know how I feel if I tell you. None of my actions are determined by my emotions. Every move I make is calculated and well thought out. The only emotion I can honestly say I struggle with on a daily basis is fear; the fear of becoming weak like you niggas. But even with that, you would have never known if I didn’t tell you.
