Boys hurt too
i am absolutely terrified and horrified by this
that’s because with boys a chemical is released in their brain when they make the decision and boys are more likely to hang or shoot themselves, so it always gets done first try. Meanwhile, girls tend to cut and mostly take pills, a method easier to mess up and easier to be saved, thus more attempts and less effect.
Yeah, but boys hurt too
Also boys are a lot less likely to chicken out
Statistics say that more males go through with suicide attempts than females
You know how radfems get mad when guys “hijack a post”
"released a chemical in the brain"
androgens mask ‘classic’ depression symptoms, which leads to signs known as “male pattern” depression
Male pattern depression can include signs seen infrequently in women:
- Lower stress threshold
- Aggressive behavior or difficulty controlling impulses
- Irritability, restlessness, dissatisfaction
- Anxiety, especially in the morning
- Alcohol abuse or illegal drug use
- Excessive exercise or work
- Hyperactive behavior
- Eating too little or too much
- Antisocial behavior and/or pushing or testing social norms
This, by the by, is the cause of ‘the depression gap’. There actually aren’t more depressed women than men, it’s just that in men it presents as other disorders.
the other problem men and boys aren’t given the mental skills to impart their needs, let alone expect them to be met. It would help if people started giving a shit.
This makes me very sad. Especially since when a boy/man gets sad and/or depressed they are told to “man up” and “get over it”, which ends up in them bottling up and suppressing all of their emotions, which can have devastating effects.

No expert by ANY means, but I think it has a lot to do with the toxic masculinity they’re expected to have that tells them not to show their emotions to anyone ever.
yeah maybe we need to rename that phenomena.
It’s not ‘boys have toxic masculinity’ it’s ‘people with toxic notions of masculinity decide to socialize boys to expect ridicule when they show the full range of their human emotions’
For real. And it’s not only other men who are reinforcing such damaging standards of masculinity, many women support it, too, talking about how a “real man” is supposed to act.
