Father Son Pictures Sparks Debate About Toxic Masculinity

In recent years, the conversation surrounding toxic masculinity has sparked some critical debate. Society holds some pretty archaic views regarding the stigmas still attached to men who express their emotions or do things perceived as 'soft' or 'feminine.' Although awareness is increasing, there is still a lot more progress to be made. One father, Eric Owens, experienced this first-hand when he posted a photo collage on Facebook of him and his son lying in his arms over the years, including one when his son was a teenager. His post, which he captioned "18 years later and he still under my arm," went viral, with thousands of people commenting on it. Although many of the comments were positive, a good handful of them (mostly from men) was negative, stating how strange they thought it was for a father to show affection to a grown son— something only a mother should do. Someone posted it all on Tumblr, adding a rant about how this was a classic example of the toxic masculinity pervasive in society and people are agreeing. What do you think about it all?

Woman Wants To Know If She's Wrong To Stop Supporting Dead Husband's 'Affair Child' At 18

Everyone has secrets; it's what makes life interesting. But sometimes, the way a secret is revealed can be more scandalous than the secret itself. One woman, who only found that her husband was having an affair when his mistress showed up at his funeral, pregnant, turned to the subreddit Am I The A-Hole for advice.

She explained how, out of the goodness of her heart, she "Agreed to set up a trust for the child for college and agreed to let them live in one of my rental properties in a good area rent-free until her child was 18." Now that the child is 18, she demands that the mom pays rent or moves out. Her deceased husband's family tells her that she is unfair and still owes the woman and her child money. She feels otherwise. Redditors agreed with her and claimed that she had been more than generous. What do you think?
