Ali Gul Pir, a rapper and comedian, recently found something: men don’t want to help each other as women do, and that’s not okay.
On Saturday, he shared a collection of Instagram Stories about his findings.”For the past few days, I have been taking care of myself. I joined a gym and got a facial for the first time in my life. I noticed women always send me encouraging messages, ‘good that you joined a gym, good, take care of your body, great that you got a facial, you look good, keep doing it, how did it go’, etc etc. All good messages,” he said.
But the men don’t do the same. “Guys are like, ‘oh bro, what have you done, your face still looks the same, you wasted your money, you could have given the money me instead’,” he said.
“Learn something from women, they support each other, they motivate you. Guys will never be happy for each other,” he said.
But this isn’t new. He reminisced that when someone got new shoes in school, no one had good things to say. “Everyone would say ‘what shoes are you wearing, they’re fake, if I had gotten them, I would have gotten them for x amount of money, this is the old design’.”
What’s up with that? “Be happy for someone else,” he told them. “It won’t cost you any money. If your life is shit, stop taking that shit out on other people. Be happy.”

It is highly impressive to see men like Ali Gul Pir acknowledging these issues. We should all be supportive of each other and build each other up instead of pitting against our fellow beings.
