I had never heard of the term until it came up in an all-male support group that I was in during college. The most straightforward example would be men being uncomfortable expressing vulnerability or weakness, crying, or asking for help. Generally because men grew up with male role models behaving a certain way and the way men were portrayed in pop culture/TV/movies, especially 10+ years ago. Definitely more of a thing for millennials and younger who experienced one thing growing up and found themselves in a different world. It's difficult for many young men to navigate that space and it should be talked about more...and yes, it goes both ways (i.e. women not wanted to date shorter men). Since dating requires vulnerability it tends to show up in that realm.

If you want to go down the Jordan Peterson rabbit hole he explains it really well. Some of his thesis on the masculinity is a little bit out there but he has some very good points. There is one on the BBC it is rather long but he makes some good points on masculinity and other subjects.

I got my first round of the vaccine at the beginning of the month at Walgreens. When I made my appointment, the online scheduler glitched and I was unable to make my second appointment. Rather, it double booked my first appointment. They told me I'd have to call the 1-800 number to schedule my 2nd dose. I'm now eligible for my 2nd round and I cannot make an appointment for it. I wait on hold for at least 45 minutes each time I call only for them to not have any appointments. Due to the scheduling glitch, I cannot use the online scheduler (I can't cancel the double-booked appointment, and neither can Walgreens from their end). I am quite frustrated by this.

I would call your local Walgreens and talk to the pharmacist. They may be able to network with other Walgreens in your area to get you set up.

My dog, Brauny, never saw an opening day without his namesake on the Brewers roster. He passed away in his sleep last night.

Sort of poetic. I’m so sorry for your loss. Dogs are the best.

The ‘Cash me Outside’ girl from Dr. Phil just turned 18 and made $1 million overnight on Only Fans. Meanwhile, I’m in my mid 30s and finally saved up enough money to buy real patio furniture.

Still not as bad Bella Thorne making $1mil in a day on Only Fans with a 3 pack of "normal" pictures and replying to DMs. The newly 18 year old Bhad Bhabie is apparently going to be a lil more...revealing/NSFW.

Her earnings for 6 hours is kind of incredible though. Bella Thorne's massive 24 hour earnings caused OF to put limiters in for new users on how much they can make until established. Under old rules Bhad Bhabie's earnings would have been easily north of $2mil.

We’ve got to quit it with these stimulus checks if this is where the money winds up going.

When the first one went out Live PD was as predictable as expected. Some guy got caught with pot and he was upset cause he spent his whole stimulus check on it. I wish one could track how much went to illegal things like drugs. Probably just a comical amount.

Lonely men and women after a year of very little social life will do stupid things. Yes I know that last comment was sarcastic but it is going to be interesting to see what the impacts of the lockdowns had on the general population. I wouldn't be surprised to see a rise in some social psychological issues.

Oh, no doubt ... people have needs and the past year has been especially trying. I don’t mean to be insensitive.

I just find it odd that the average person can spend up to 40 years working to fund their retirement; meanwhile, a teenager can sell her nudes online and become a millionaire overnight. Capitalism is wild.

This didn't make her a millionaire, she already had a net worth upwards of $4 million. She has a music career and generates money via social media ads and endorsements.

She got famous and cashed in. Weird things happen to people that become memes, if they handle things correctly they can get paid for the not-necessarily-wanted exposure.

I read that Kevin from The Office made $1 million on Cameo last year

It looks like he charges $200 per request, so to earn $1 million (not accounting for Cameo’s cut), he needs to make 5,000 videos per year.

That works out to nearly 14 videos per day, so he’s probably spending 10 hours every week making Cameo videos.

$1 million doesn’t sound that absurd for 1/4 of a popular comedian’s productive time.

That’s pretty cool, though.

Just for you, Turbo:

Bella Thorne = actress
Only Fans (OF) = subscription site (w/ adult content)
‘Normal’ Pictures = not porn
DM = direct message
Bhad Bhabie = Dr. Phil show villain / teen rapper
NSFW = not suitable for work
Limiters = OF’s cap on creators’ earnings
