Of course it is. We are all human and have emotions, feelings crying has nothing to do with gender. I really hate when fathers tell there sons man up don't be a sissy stop crying men don't cry. God Bless

To cry is an emotion.. it doesnt matter whether its a man or woman. its nothing man shouldnot do or woman should do.. its a way of expressing feeling.

I totally think its ok for a man to cry. Why shouldnt it be? I mean it doesnt make them anyless of a man, it just shows they can express the emotions and their feelings just like everyone else.

I don't think it's a big deal if a man cry. I've seen men cried before. For women they are more sensitive So it's a lot more normal for females to cry.

I think it is ok if a man cries, and if a woman cries. We are all human, and I believe if you can cry in front of others that makes you a better person. It means you are in touch with yourself and your feelings. Noone should ever hide their feelings, because then they are hiding part of themselves.

Cry if you want - man crying
I think it is fine for a man to cry if he feels the need. I don't see why they are told not to as it is a natural way to vent frustrations or feelings. If a man is that worked up over something that he wants to cry, he should not hold it in because that is unhealthy.

cry is just a burst of emotion, not exhibition of weakness and softness. plus, if you dont give your emotion an exit from time to time, there might be serious problem caused. So man should not pretend to be tough, and just let your tears get out when it is time.

I think EVERYBODY needs to cry now and then, it DOES make you feel better! Scientists have proved that crying releases a certain substance in your body that DOES make you feel better, it's sorta like your own therapy!

Crying is good for both men and women. There is nothing wrong with a man crying. We all need to cry as it helps us to get over our sadness and make us feel better. Emotions is very important in life.

A man who cry has no shame and can show his emotional side. I am a man and I have no problems admitting that when I am hurt or upset I cry. It is a healthy thing for a man to get his tears out whether they are tears of joy or tears of sadness. A man who cry shows that he is human and does have a tender side to his heart. So I say to all those so called macho men there is never any shame in having a good cry as it will only hurt more if you keep pain and joy locked up inside of yourself.

It's a perfectly natural thing to do for both men and women. I think there are certain times when you are expected to cry, whether you're a man or a woman. Then there are times when you are not expected to and it's just silly. I mean, I know women who cry to get their own way or because they've broken a nail or something. They are not reasons for crying. And if a bloke cried for some smaller things which some women cry about, that would be bad.
