The Strongest Flowers I Know are Pansies
Maureen said as we look outside at the flower boxes filled with pansies that are showing resilience to having been ravaged by snow and freezing temperatures the past weeks, now being warmed by cold rain, “The strongest flowers I know are pansies.”
I did a quick search to see who else might be pondering this and discovered a rambler who asked, “Why is it considered wrong for men to cry?” Is that close enough?
“When women cry it's because they are women and they get emotional, but when I cry I get called a pansy. Why?’
‘hi sebastian , i read your question and its considered wrong in society because of down the thousands of years of evolution ,both males and females were categorized by their gender qualities, but society’s thinking and expectations on males were different , society thinks that if males cry then we are showing a female trait/quality and that shows weakness, this is not truth of course but it’s what society believes and society does not want males to feel this crying emotion due to wanting males to be strong and show that they can cope with anything, as they think this is the answer to coping through adversity, the strong survive but the weak emotional ones fall by the wayside…’”
