Men Therapy Toronto
Ridicule which is being defined here as the experience of being made fun of by others is very rarely spoken about in the context of men’s mental health. Many men have learned to say that what others say doesn’t mean anything to them or ‘I don’t care about what other people think of me.’ however that is rarely the case. All individuals have a need to be loved and ridicule is the opposite experience of that.
Men can be ridiculed for their lack of physical ability, their poor intellect, their lack of hair, being overweight, being effeminate, being too quiet or too loud, always wanting attention, being arrogant, etc. The list of items to be ridiculed about is essentially endless.
