The Double Standard
Sure, it's more deadly serious when someone tries to take their life, but it doesn't seem to far away from the self-destruction of the female counterparts. Who was crying out that Owen Wilson needed help before the suicide attempt? And it seems like all the guys who have problems can seem to "get help" privately and we just allow them, because men aren't the sexy, mugging starlets like the women. Really, who among men has their face out there, seemingly announcing, "I'm great" to the world...maybe besides High School Musical's Zac Efron, who seems like the clean-cut boy-next-door type but we'll probably be hearing all about his flaws soon. And if it comes to that, will he be put under the same light as the trifecta of Lindsay, Britney, Paris?
I just find the whole dynamic interesting, is all. I don't write this thinking the world is going to change.
