Thank you for this. For many years I’ve thought deeply about it. However, it must be pointed out that although socialization teaches violence, it is also partly biological. Also unfortunately taught, is that males should hide feelings. We are fully our nature AND our nurture.

When people cry (females too) they say “Sorry.” We apologize for having feelings, unless those feelings are angry or aggressive.

Please ignore who wish to silence you with insult and misunderstanding. They simply are not in touch with the advantage of having (and usefully expressing) human feelings.
