why are men emotionally closed off

I think it’s a social and cultural thing. To be closed off. I don’t think it’s natural. I’m as open as a book to anyone and everyone, and that to me feels more empowering than being closed off and guarded. Men have been this way since the victorian times. It’s been woven into the very…
