Really? So, all the talk about bullying is just crap?
I think it's incredibly fucked up. It implies that crying is bad, crying is a girl thing, doing girl things is bad, being a girl is bad, girls are weak.
It also enforces the misconception that men shouldn't show emotion and if they do it makes them weak. I would flip shit if someone said that to my kid.
