@Dexter-Adams I mean, is the boy in question human? 'cause humans are dorks.
And you're right! Human males aren't generally socialized to value or be good at social/emotional intelligence. But still, they're not stupid. Humans, even male humans (JOKE) can figure it out.
I get you're being disingenuous to brag that you are "not like other boys" but just be the kindness and compassion you want to see in "other boys."
