It is okay for men to feel pain. This may sound seems like an easy concept to grasp, and maybe even somewhat of a hackneyed saying, but as Terrence Real recognizes in his I Don't Want to Talk About It, the idea has become hackneyed, just for how often it gets repeated, as if that through its repetition, the saying can become a cultural refrain, and that in its utterance, men are only excusing themselves for when they actually do feel anything resembling upset. Pain is weakness, many of us are too often reminded, and when it gets said enough times, we may actually live absent its hindrance. ~ Reviewed by Ray Marsocci
