Mayim Bialik's Inspiring Message for Anyone Who's Ever Been Called 'Too Emotional'

Being "too emotional" isn't a weakness—it's a super power.

Actress Mayim Bialik from the Big Bang Theory released one of the most inspiring YouTube videos for anyone who’s ever been labeled “too emotional.”

As she mentions in the clip, our sensitivity and our ability to empathize and feel strong emotions isn’t a weakness, it’s actually our super power.

Watching this video, I couldn’t help but think of myself and all the other femme guys out there who have been ridiculed for being “too sensitive,” for “overreacting,” or for having completely healthy and normal feelings. While Bialik doesn’t mention  in her video that this vilifying of emotions for femme men is derived from toxic masculinity, it relates so, so much.

But before I ruin it by telling you more, watch the video below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments and on Twitter!
