The Most Damaging Words You Can Tell Your Son (Video)

What happens when you’re constantly told “stop crying,” “be a man,” or “man up”? Watch how certain words and expectations around masculinity are damaging young boys. We hope everyone who has a son watches this video, and we look forward to seeing more of, “The Mask You Live In.” Kudos to Miss Representation.

I never told either one of my step-sons any of these. If they wanted to cry or get mad, I let them get it out of their system!
