This creates a very unhealthy mental attitude

    We actually have "Women do not cry" as well, but I see where you're coming from

    Don't worry it wasn't a criticism of the course! Your sentences have been great and I'm really enjoying it! There's just been a whole big thing in the UK recently about how the stereotype of boys repressing their emotions and girls just being pretty is really harmful for both sexes so I figured I'd just mention it.

      We fixed it after receiving feedback :) Thank you

      True. At least this sentence it said 남자(는). Which refers to a specific man or men that don't cry right? Kinda avoids the generalization right?

      IMO we're here to study a language, not get life advice. Just because you're learning to say it doesn't mean you have to agree with it.

      Agreed, but impressed at how the complaint was handled. Love the team behind this course! Amazing and dedicated group!

      Wasn't a complaint! I love the course, was just adding a contrasting point of view. I really didn't mean it as a big deal haha

      THIS SENTENCE IS A FLAT OUT LIE

      Here is a problem I have with this question. 남자는 울지 않아요. Directly translates to "Man does not cry" In English, having the word "The" is a definite article and this sentence lack that.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OlgaMaksymchuk

      If I translated it as "Man do not cry" would it be wrong?? Why?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ValaeshaMi

      Simply because that is improper grammar....
