WHy whenever we see a man crying,automatically we will label him 'weak'.Why can't man cry,man is also human and got our own feeling.Isn't that expressing own feeling is a best way to release stress..

I have no idea where you get your information from but for your information men do cry. I know I do if I'm with my girl if she needs a shoulder to cry on. Even if something that has to do with missing my girl and I see something on TV that resembles our love then I do get in tears. A man who admits he cries doesn't change anything about him. Stuff that people say men are weak that's just immature childish talk. It's fine for a man to cry, even women understand that in a respectful way. But if a man cries like a little wuss or sissy then that's a different story then I consider those type of guys wimps.

agree that it is an immature childish talk.But when people label you with a weak characteristic and laugh behind you...it is really hard to face it.

I guess because people have always labelled men as strong. I really do not think it is a sign of weakness if a guy crys. Actually, for me, it's a sign that he really feels and understands the emotions that he is going through right now. I've seen my fiance cry and I find it endearing. I know guys will try to hide their tears but it really is a natural thing. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Men should be allowed to cry. They are human and should be able to express their emotions how they see fit. However, men are socially stereotyped to be tough and self-sufficient. People believe that men shouldn't need comfort. Basically, men have to decide their emotions are more important than living up to society's expectations.
