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.
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.

American society is all like, "It is unmanly to cry."
In my opinion that's what is wrong with today's society.
You could also say a real man is one who would let others see him cry. I don't have anything against crying, if I saw a grown man crying in the streets tomorrow or something I wouldn't find it unusual - it'd probably make me a little uneasy because I'd assume something was wrong in his life. Crying does have that emphasis on things.
Sticks and stones will break my bones if the radiation doesn't kill me.
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.

I hope not.
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'.

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.

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