Unfashionable to cry in public?

Did you know it has been most unfashionable to cry, most particularly in the 1950s and 1960s? Negative judgments were commonly made about those who did so in public. Politicians for many years avoided anything even remotely connected to tears. Today that seems to be changing. I think we all need to be sadness and grief at times. If we are not remain emotionally disabled, then we need to allow whatever sobs need to wrack us and whatever tears need to roll down our cheeks. Do you mind crying in public?

Hi there! Not I don't want to cry in public but if I can prevent it I won't. Crying in public attracts attention to other people and that might cause gossip. Maybe that's why in the past years they have thought of it as unfashionable. I think even in today's society crying in public are still considered not a good thing to see. Ciao!
