I love Leslie Jones. I tuned into the Daily Show last night to catch her guest host stint. I was surprised last night to hear her rip into the refusal of men to deal with their mental health. But I'm with her, because the gun violence in this country is a problem with men using guns to express their feelings.

(You can only watch the actual bit here, because of raw language. So watch Charlemagne Tha God talk about his own experience with therapy first!)

"These dudes will use everything else for therapy instead of actual therapy," the comedian said.
"They're like, 'running is my therapy.' No, running is running. Therapy needs to be your therapy."

She said if men's issues only affected themselves, "I'd stay the hell out of their business."

"But the problem here is that men not going to therapy is affecting women. OK? Depressed men are more likely to commit domestic violence. They're more likely to commit abuse."

She then summarized what she called "Sad Dick" in depressed men in a very funny bit.

"So long story short, men, go to therapy."

Can you help us out?
