It's the macho image, that boys don't cry. But men tend to bottle their feelings up and when we explode, boy do we EXPLODE. But it's always said that boys or men SHOULDN'T CRY what do you think?

I think it fine for men to cry. I rather my husband cry than he keep it inside because he gonna have to let it out soon or later and I think it better to let out the feeling when men need to.

Only in certain situations, but if you cry at every romance movie, and cry becuase someone got mad at you, people will start to think you're gay.

There was a time when Men were not suppoded to cry because if gthey did they were concidered to be weak. But that is slowly changing. I personly think it's ok for men and boys to cry. The idea that men should not cry come from other men or boys because they are afraid to share their feeling and emotion's.

Very very true, as I said in the statement above, I only cry when I'm alone NEVER in front of others. Thanks for your reply.

Oh for sure ! All real men cries ! This "macho image" is a FAKE ! Even if you need, wouldn't you cry because of the "macho image" ?

I do cry but I always cry alone, making sure no one sees me, I think it is a stigma still and I think I'm weak in front of others. Thank you for your reply.

I dont think men shdnt cry...After all n before all they r human beings with all the feelings... So its very natural that they also feel like crying at times..n its perfectly ok for guys to cry according to me...

i think that a man should be able to cry without people saying anything because i believe a man should be able to cry just like a women maybe if guys did they would not explode as much as they do.

Of course men can cry, it's human nature, they might not cry infront of people but they do cry. Everybody is human!

Hi there - yes there is that image that boys don't cry, but they should be allowed to show their emotions. It's wrong to tell your little boy don't cry, boys don't cry - if i have a little boy i will let him show his emotions. :)

yes I think for a man to show emotion in that way probably does more for a woman as far as attraction is concerned...

Yes, why not coz basicly boy still a human being who has emotion inside their self. So its natural if boy get cry some times. afterall, tears is good to make it out coz it make some of eyes dirt getting out too.
