No shit. When you're the bogeyman, it's understandable for your outlook on life to be bleak and be unwilling to speak out about it.

But men aren't open enough about their feelings. No shit. The people who would otherwise be listening are the ones who are so caught up in their own problems that other people's pale in comparison. Instead of unloading our baggage on other people, we know that they have their own problems, and bottle ours up. If that makes it look as if we don't have anything that isn't going for us, that isn't our fault. That's just the way the world works. We don't expect everything to stop moving and revolve around us.

No fucking kidding? Maybe because we don't whine like a bunch of pissy little cunts and instead focus on moving forward.

Fucking DUH.

Well, when you're the scapegoat for damn near everyone else's shitty problems due to their own shitty decisions, you "learn" to just keep your thoughts to your fucking self, else be barraged with a load of bullshit from those other people.

One of my best friends of 20 years just recently opened up to me about his depression issues. Twenty...fucking...years. Hell, he's only half white even, and is sick of the crap he catches for that.

White men don't feel entitled to be victims, even when we are. It's not part of our culture, and other aspects of the general culture actively discourage white men from thinking of themselves as victims (SJW's, black people, women all hammer this point day in, day out).

Ironically, it's probably this anti-victimhood mentality that makes white men so successful, because we tend not to commiserate and dwell on our misfortune. Obviously some do, but they are deemed weaklings by the rest and are cast aside. It's hard to even talk about white men as singular group or identity because it's a concept that is so utterly contradictory to the white male experience, which I think is part of that strength. We don't see each other as having each other's back, or being someone we can fall back on, or even really trust all that much. As a white guy, all white guys are just others, maybe less other than a black guy or a woman, naturally, but others nonetheless. This singularity is a blessing and a curse, I think.

Umm, anyone else find the sample group stats odd: "...This cross-sectional study enrolled 5899 adults including 5008 Blacks (African-Americans or Caribbean Blacks) and 891 Non-Hispanic Whites. Mean age of participants was 43.6 years (SE = 0.69)." Why such a huge disparity in sample group make ups?
