And that's why all man-children are gay.

Everyone knew what it meant to shed manly tears when Wind Waker HD was shown off.

I don't have any issues with myself crying, hell, if I'm really so upset to have the urge to do it, it would be nothing but unhealthy to hold it in. With that said, I've found that it takes more and more to get me to cry, the older I get. (Like pain used to make me cry when I was little, yet it doesn't have that effect on me anymore.)

Honestly, it's been around 6 years since the last time I cried. It was when my long-time girlfriend (who I still loved dearly, at the time) dumped my ass and moved out of state to go to college. I was fucked up for quite a while after that.

Of course it's okay for men to cry, but there are times were crying would make the people around you uncomfortable so like anything else, it's good to be courteous about when and where you do it.


It made more sense in my head.

Occasionally at my job I have to package dead dogs and cats to be sent off for cremation, sometimes after I've taken care of them for multiple shifts.

While I don't end up a sobbing mess I have a hard time imagining I'll ever be able to do it without feeling sad about it, with the animals I liked more I'll usually cry a bit too. Frankly, I'd have a harder time dealing with it if I repressed it.

You can do whatever the fuck you want.

If you need to ask others as to what a simple act's societal consequences are, you've got major insecurities. Do you value your masculinity? Do you think your masculinity would be "lessened" by sobbing like a little bitch? Do you think other's perceptions of your masculinity would drop if they witness you mewling like a teenage whore? Do you value their perceptions?

All the answers to these questions are local and indigenous to your context. Conduct some experiments, or rather don't because bawling like an infant whose fucktard spawners rightfully fled from, doesn't solve shit.

Of course, what a silly question.

I think it's okay for a man to cry. It'll make you look like a pussy, but it's still okay.

A man crying? Nah, that's not okay all, no matter the circumstance. If a man absolutely must cry, it must absolutely not be seen by anybody.

Yeah, it's normal to. It's sort of a societal standard that men are tough and don't cry, but that's a really old standard, and it's going away.

Men should not cry as often as women, so that when they do actually cry, it has a lot of impact. When women cry, they get ignored, but when men cry, it's like 'shit must be serious if there is actually a male crying'.

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

I'm not doubting the ability to cry, but if you defend crying like that and do it you're an enourmous pussy, deal with it. Or don't, you can always cry about it.

Men are allowed to cry over failed exams and Disney movies.

I echo this sentiment. Modern society told you men can't cry. Television, movies, media in general.

I'm a pussy so I cry a lot.

I don't really care what people think about the fact that I do. I do however care if people see me cry. But whatever.
