Why aren't there many geese here?

Well, I tend to make friends with people like me. People that do the same things as me and are interested in the same things as me. That's just how things work. Isn't that how you work? Aren't your friends mostly geese?

So I brought my friends, who are mostly ducks. So here we have mostly ducks. Most of the other people who were interested enough to come were also ducks, who brought mostly other ducks. Ducks share the same interests as ducks.

The question is, then, why didn't you bring any geese?

You came alone then blamed me for .. what.. not bringing your friends?

Why were you interested and your friends weren't?

You asked me a question you would be the expert at answering.

A story about a man being a man.

A man, like all men, must "man up" instead of showing weakness. Not allowed to talk about his feelings, or ask for help, he is never diagnosed with mental disorders. When his wife dies, he is never offered and can't seek counselling. When he spirals into depression he cannot talk about it or seek help. When his disorders flare up, he again cannot ask for help. His bills unpaid, he's still required to suffer quietly until he is driven to suicide or is thrown into the streets. He can't even talk to his family. He is a man who must be a man.

A movie with no characters, no plot and no purpose. Though I wonder if it intended it, this movie supremely highlights the silent suffering men live with.

There is very little information out there which targets males, so I decided to do some digging to learn more. I ended up needing to adapt female-centric writings to extract things which are gender-neutral, rewrite things so they are more presentable to a male or just write my own stuff.

While interesting, this was a side-project I lightly researched ending in August 2015, but never pursued.
