HBL Extra Credit: Gender Roles

Song: Boys Don’t Cry

By: The Cure

“I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
“Cause boys don’t cry” 

Blog Post:

I chose this song to represent gender roles because boys are expected to be taught and to not cry. I really don’t understand why men cant express their emotions like woman can. They believe if they show their emotion they will be seen as weak or not man enough. These specific lyrics symbolize the reason why men hide their emotions because they are afraid of judgement.
