#1 Denigrating and emasculating men who show emotions. It’s honestly one of the most f****d up things anyone can do to another person. Also, using a man’s kids as pawns in disputes, like cutting off visitation because you’re mad at him. Don’t f*****g do that, it’s just cruel to the kids.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
