Warning: This is Brother blog (because brother can’t be a guest). If you were excepting to read a blog from your favorite blogger, then stay calm and stay tuned. I’ll be back.
I had an idea about Men’s day. I discussed it with Sanket (the writer of this blog), and he said he will write a poem for me. I said I need more than a poem, so I convinced him, or he convinced himself about writing this blog (I am not sure exactly, but something happened)
Let’s read it and discuss it further in the comments section.
Let’s start with a story today. I was passing by a street and I heard a cry(Dude, that could be spooky at night), Someone was crying. I looked for the source of the voice. When I finally traced the voice, I could not believe it. I felt I was seeing something unusual. It was a man. He was having tears in his eyes. Out of concern, I went near him and slapped him hard on his face. Obviously, he deserved a slap. After all, he is a man and man cannot cry. Right?
The above story is a work of fiction and bear cent percent resemblance with our society that MAN CANNOT CRY.
Hello and welcome to this new and a bit unique blog from your favorite, FAT GUY WORKOUT (Not me I swear).
Today, on this International Men’s Day, I am going to speak about the STIGMA, surrounding men and I assure you that by the end of this blog, if you are a man, you will relate with it and if you are a female, you will realize that, be it by coincidences, you have mistreated someone, a male, as per those societal notions.
This blog is a bit poetic as the writer is a bit poetic by nature
He too gets tired of all the burden he has But he cannot cry He undergoes all the hardships But he cannot cry He has pain to share But hardly anyone cares He feels lost many a times But crying is like a horrendous crime He has to keep everything within himself He has to keep his tears on the shelf His tears get him a tag of a weak man He is considered a black spot on his whole clan If he has a heart break He is asked to move on If he suffers an ache He is asked to be strong I just wanna say man also undergoes pain He also have all the stresses and strain He tries to keep a smile on his face in all situations He has to fulfill his responsibilities amidst all the tensions Sometimes he is tagged as a chauvinist Sometimes he is caught in a web of mist But still he has to put up a smile With pain in heart he has to go many a miles
I just plead you all that if you ever see a man cry, don’t tag him as weak or laugh at him. He too has a heart. He to has feelings. He too wants someone to understand him. He too wants someone to make him feel secured. If you see someone cry, don’t quote the lines like, “Man are strong”, “man cannot cry”. The one who cries is not weak. In fact, the one who cries is a real human. Men are humans too. Men also deserve the right to cry.
At the end I just want to say that we men also are just the way females are. We are also brought up by the same set of parents. Our upbringing has been in the similar environment just like those of females. We man also want to have someone’s shoulder to cry (and that’s totally cool btw). We also want someone to hear us out (I suggest you start writing blogs), Just think it this way. Two individuals, who are brought up in the same environment, are expected to work differently? If they are working differently, it’s okay but if they are working in the same manner, then there is a problem.
I just request that if you see a man cry, please do not tag that man as weak or immature, but hear him out. Listen to him, empathize him and remember, it’s not about woman can cry and man cannot cry, it’s just that humans can cry.
I will end this blog with just one line, YES MAN CAN CRY and MAN SHOULD CRY.
Who’s cutting onions?
This is completely opposite to what I say in the end. The writer is telling you to keep crying. While I say keep smiling. I wonder how both will work.
If you want to get connected with the writer of this blog Sanket Goyal, who is also a poet, writer, content creator & #1 supporter of FGW, just tap his name.

Btw, I know the reason why men are crying. In our state, women get a free bus ride to anywhere within the state on women’s day, while men get nothing. This is so unfair.
I think that’s pretty much it for this blog. Happy International Men’s day (19th November).
Until next time Men can keep crying, but women remember to smile.
