I didn't mean to piss her off. Obviously, I did.
Yes, darlin' I have criticized "skins" many times before because I don't like them or understand the need for them. I NEVER have called you fat. I made a blanket observation about those cartoon characters on skins and you took it personally. For that, and anything I said in my post about crying that upset you, I apologize.
I cannot control what commenters write on my blog. THEY attacked you, not me, but if that sends you into a pout, you'd better work on growing a tougher ass. Blog commenters are like that... I know a lot of them have been pretty nasty to me, but I don't care. You shouldn't, either.
It sounds to me like you've got a good man, especially considering the emotionally-draining line of work he's in. The fact that a movie makes him cry should make you PROUD of him. He hasn't let life stomp the feelings out of him yet.
That's a good thing. And if he cries in front of YOU, that's even better. That's love and trust in action. You should appreciate that, not hint that it is "ridiculous." You just set me off wrong by taking such a light-hearted approach to the subject. It's not light-hearted to me.
Real men DO cry.
