again, i just wanna …. like, reiterate? congratulate? applaud? skam for SHOWING that it is 100% COMPLETELY okay for a boy to cry about the status of his current relationship and where it’s at, given just how COMPLEX that relationship has gotten, and show that he’s feeling pain, and anxiety, and worry, and that it feels like torture and that it DOES INDEED HURT, to the point where tears just start to flow, without even trying to hold them back anymore.
that’s it’s OKAY for a boy to cry about his love life, in the silence of his room, where he can’t even speak to his dad anymore on the phone and has to lie to him, saying he’s okay, when he’s literally in tears.
that, in fact, since friday, isak’s cried 3 whole times, once out of happiness, and twice in pain, and that it is COMPLETELY valid and okay for a boy to cry in happiness as well as sadness too.
honestly? thank god skam are normalising the fact that it’s okay for a 17 year old boy who dresses in “snapbacks and sports jackets”, whom most would assume at face value to be “a guy who lacks in empathy and emotion”, to show him as one of the most “strongly fueled and driven by emotion” 17 year old boys i’ve seen in a LONG LONG time.
