On the 29th of April actress, Jessica Chastain, tweeted about the problems with the phrase, “Stop crying. Be a man.” Within the tweet, the actress stated men’s vulnerabilities should be cherished because their lives depend on it. She then stated, “121 Americans die by suicide each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control- and 93 of them are men.” Thinking about the use of the phrase “Stop crying. Be a man,” makes me think of the Dove campaign #LikeAGirl in 2014. Not only is our culture at fault for stereotyping men and women but I think media plays a huge role in why men and women are stereotyped. The phrase “Stop crying. Be a man,” didn’t fabricate out of thin air. It’s rare to see male actors cry in movies and if they do it’s often made into a big deal. If men are seen crying they usually feel the need to justify with a reason behind it. I’m about to get deeply personal but I cry! I firmly believe crying is a great way to relieve stress. Sometimes you just have to have yourself a good old fashion cry. There is nothing wrong with men and women showing their emotions. I agree and think we should stop using terms that stereotype genders. If we continue to stereotype men and women then I think bigger problems will arise. Men will feel like they need to keep from expressing their emotions. Instead of using phrases like “Be a man” and “Like a girl” we should eliminate them altogether in hopes of moving in a positive direction that will help both men and women express their emotions comfortably.
