Who Told Men Not To Cry?

The first time I saw my dad cry was during his younger brother's burial and I knew he was truly broken. For me it was a sign that he was balanced and wasn't even shy that lots of people were in attendance or that he "was not supposed" to cry. I felt safe seeing him express his grief and he is 73 now.
So after I cried last night for missing a gentleman who has coached me for 9 years, I wondered this morning if a man would have reacted same way I did, if he loves so one so much and was gonna miss the person always. (Not in death)

So i thought, quite unlikely.

Funny summation!

Who told you (men) that a man shouldn't cry?

Women? Other men? Both men and women? or Society including children?

Your honest answer will be appreciated.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
