Despite the stereotypes that are harming boys' empathic and relationship
skills, isn't it still true that most men value their family relationships
love of their spouse above all else in polls that asks them about what is
in life? How does this fit in with all these messages against closeness -
mean when some/many males get to be men they just override those messages?
Previous comment by Cate Dooley:
In fact, boys who stay connected emotionally and learn how to be in
relationships in a real way will be better able to have mutually empathic
relationships with whomever they choose to in life. I have more thoughts
but will save them for later!
