I'm just wondering what you guys think.
Personally I think it is ok for men to cry about certain things.
Like death of a loved one and stuff.
American society is all like, "It is unmanly to cry."
In my opinion that's what is wrong with today's society.

Men aren't pre programmed not to want to cry. So whenever you want unless you care what people think.

Of course it is okay for a man to cry. It isn't at all uncommon either. Guys who claim they don't cry are either full of it, or really cold individuals. Men simply feel the need to stifle tears, and hide it from others because they know how cruel other people can be about it.

Do what you have to. We aren't robots. I personally don't care if you're a grown man crying, emotions are emotions.

Its kind of funny. I value animal life over humans. If my dad died, I wouldn't shed a single tear. If a dog I had for years on end loved it like a brother x10 I would be fucking bawling.

I'm one of those guys that don't like to show emotion.
Actually I wish I didn't have emotion.
I mean I would probably be further in life if I simply lacked the ability to be sad.
But as you can see, that hasn't happened and I just always feel depressed.

It's okay for anyone to cry, young or old, woman or men.

Only on close relatives deaths.


Pretend not to care about anything, but be bothered by everything.
You may be fast on the roads but it's no use on the track.

Anyone can cry when they want dumb ass. Not just at funerals.

Of course it's fine for a man to cry. I cry sometimes because of tragic events or extreme hard moments.

Just don't cry in public; cry alone, where no-one is watching.

Every human being will have to cry at some points in their lives.

As someone once said: "even the strongest of men cry"

It is absolutely good for people to cry, regardless of gender. Refusing to let your emotions out will only force them to bottle more inside and have you unleash them in worse ways.

A guy likes a penis up his butt
A man likes to shove his penis up a girl's butt.
