It’s really impressive, how Coi breaks the social stereotype “Boys don’t cry” to “Girls don’t cry”. Although, where “Boys don’t cry” means not expressing boys’ or men’s emotions and putting their headstrong or not being vulnerable! girls don’t cry expresses emotional resilience! it’s Coi’s personal message for girls not to lose their guts in difficult situations and being courageous. The ink breaks gender stereotypes that believe crying is associated with weakness!
