#WhyMenNeedABreak – The Good, The Bad And The Funny

Well, that escalated quickly. #WhyMenNeedABreak is trending on Twitter today.

Well, that escalated quickly. #WhyMenNeedABreak is trending on Twitter today.

I honestly can’t tell if this started as a Piss Take or an attempt to start an honest conversation about men’s issues. Either way, casual browsing is bound to give you mood whiplash.

At first, it can come off like a parody similar to #BoomerAdvice, or something more akin to #MeToo. However, once you break it down, the hashtag is actually just working through three different kinds of conversations simultaneously.

The Good

Amongst the vitriol, real talking points emerged.

Some users took the time to express appreciation for loved ones. Others shared concerns weighing heavy on their minds. Like most Twitter topics, positive conversations are always happening. You just need to know where to look.

The Bad

There were a few users who had an absolute field day, with #WhyMenNeedABreak, for all the wrong reasons.

And most disappointing of all, some men took the opportunity to belittle other men for even thinking about needing a break. So, here are a few dishonourable mentions for all-around garbage human behaviour.

The Funny

Obviously, #WhyMenNeedABreak had some pretty polarizing elements. Thankfully, the ever-present funny side of Twitter was at the ready to provide some much-needed levity.
