"We all knew what Vern meant right away. At the beginning of the school year, Vern had buried a quart jar of pennies underneath his house. He drew a treasure map so he could find them again. A week later, his mom cleaned out his room & threw away the map. Vern had been trying to find those pennies for nine months. Nine months, man. You didn't know whether to laugh or cry."
Stand by Me

Another favorite show of mine to bite the dust ⬇️

Suet624 Hmmm.. I‘ve never read Stand by Me. Maybe I should. 7mo
Mdargusch I agree @Suet624 - I feel like I should have read that by now. 7mo

It‘s been a busy day, so I haven‘t had a chance to catch up on my tags and comments. That will definitely be happening in the AM.

As it stands, Rhett Butler is the poster child for #boysdontcry. He‘s also perfect for memes. #sorrynotsorry #anglophileapril

FashionableObserver I could stare at that face all day. 😍 7mo
Cinfhen Ha!! The memes are endless 7mo

When #BoysDontCry, a monster might have to show up to make them realize what it is they are scared of, what makes them sad and angry, what their most painful thoughts are. At least that‘s what the monster in this book tries to do


TrishB Great pick 👍🏻 7mo
Mdargusch That cover is wonderful! 🖤 7mo
Reviewsbylola What a gorgeous edition!! 7mo

The 1999 movie #BoysDontCry was the first mainstream film to discuss violence against transgender people. Based on the '93 Brandon Teena murder, & released a year after the murder of Matthew Shepard, it progressed the national consciousness about the undeniable reality of hate crimes. Hilary Swank & Chloë Sevigny both gave masterful performances & made their characters feel relatable #AnglophileApril

Today‘s #AnglophileApril prompt is an interesting one. The first thing I thought of for #boysdontcry is anything about autism and boys being different. My autistic 11-year-old has no problems crying or showing his feelings, and I adore it. I think we need more emotion in this world, especially in the boys we‘re raising. This is a fascinating book on neuro-diverse kids and the issues they face.

BibliOphelia 👋 Hi! Mom of an autistic 8yo boy here, and I haven‘t read this one. Just about to start Why I Jump. Glad for this recommendation! 7mo
Leelee08 @BibliOphelia Hello!👋🏻 Glad to know I‘m in good company!☺️ 7mo

(Day 22 - #BoysDontCry)

*Oh, but they do...and when they do, it can be heart rending. E.g., the movie, “Candy” (from the novel “Candy: A Novel of Love and Addiction [tagged]), starring Heath Ledger, Abbie Cornish, & Geoffrey Rush. Pictured (clockwise from top left): Heath Ledger, Abbie Cornish, Luke Davies (author), Geoffrey Rush. Luke Davies also wrote a novel titled “Lion,” hello #manicmonday & @JoScho — wow! A double post! 😲

Cinfhen Woohoo!!! You thought of one!!! I haven‘t read book or seen the film but now I‘m super curious 😉 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen It was so hard not to go straight to the movie of the same name about Brandon Teena. I suppose someone posted that? I‘m going to check now...thanks for commenting! ♥️ 7mo
Mdargusch Nice! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 7mo

How often is the fact that #boysdontcry a contributing factor to healing from PTSD? Seeing my husband cry only once in 18 years is a jarring reminder of the emotional crippling many men grew up with and maintain. Thank you for this opportunity to provide a PSA #anglophileapril

Cinfhen Great post!!! Please share your message more often 🥰😘 7mo
