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.
