Brother love


Supporting each other is so important. Sharing love is so important. In the blogging community this is something very common. Yet, it's some kind of a taboo for men to share the love. Say how much they mean to each other and I think this is utter codswallop. It's time to address this. Let's talk about bromances.

Blogging is absolutely fantastic. It has really made me a better person and has made me more compassionate. I have always struggled with the idea that men can't share their feeling or show emotions. I've learnt to express my appreciation, affection and love for my friends and bloggers. I can now easily do that with women, without people thinking I'm on to something or have a hidden agenda. But with men it's different.

Apparently it's okay for men to share their feelings to women and women to share their feelings to men and women, but for men to men. It's a whole different thing. Somehow it's a weird thing for people to conceive that men can share love and appreciation for each other. It's hard to conceive that those feelings can be shared without their sexual preferences being mentioned. It really pissed me off and this has come to the surface again because of certain hate emails I've received.

Love is universal. Love is universal. Love is universal. Friendship is a kind of love to me. And I would like to share that love with the person I love. I love my friends and it doesn't matter to me if they are female or male. I feel comfortable saying that I appreciate and love them, and I want to say that to them without being perceived as weird, different or having different sexual preferences.

I won't stop showing support to my male friends. I care about them, I appreciate them, I love them. Just like my female friends. Support is so important and I will always support my friends.

  1. Excellent post, Marc, and well done for speaking out about this! You're 100% right! Girls share the love and support in the blogging community all of the time - why can't boys do the same? You always shower everyone with compliments, encouragement and moral support. It doesn't go unnoticed. Don't ever change.

  2. What a lovely post! I completely agree! Boys should do the same for each other just as much as girls do it for each other. Thera no harm in this, intact as you say support is the most important thing!

  5. This is so beautiful Marc! I have always said the same to my male and female friends. But I can't really know what's it like since I'm not a man (deuuh). And you are absolutely right, Love is love. It's universal and love doesn't mean being in love necessarily. You can just as well love your friends. And loving someone is being there for them whenever, wherever.

  11. I can't believe you're receiving hate emails for showing love! More men need to be like you. Men should never feel afraid to show their love for other men! It's human nature to have feelings <3

  12. Agree with this 100%! It's all about gender equality and what should be normal for women should be normal for men, as well as the other way round.
