I did not explain well enough but this is what I meant, not to speak or say that people’s healing and trauma is cleanly linear, triumphant, successful, even as men. But that patriarchy allows this more easily for men who fit that narrative, or demand men’s expressions of trauma fit this narrative.

As for the rest, yes, a thousand times, yes. Thank you.
