what it means to be a woman

I had to go to the laundromat today. As I was folding something, out of the blue the woman working there told me that her sister-in-law has stage 4 liver cancer, and is dying.

Then she told me that her own brother tried to commit suicide last week.

We talked for a while. I showed as much empathy as I could.

Do men talk like this with people they don't know?
