When do you think it is appropriate for men to cry?

I saw this advertisement for a video made by yahoo entitled "when is it appropriate for men to cry?" SO I became curious and thought I would ask what everyone thought, thanks!

  • Man can cry from a loss of a loved one or a life changing experience. I can be emotional guy, however most people don't know that about me, I can hold it back if I wish and I'm not going to break down in front of people, I don't like breaking down in front of anyone, so I don't. Reason has nothing to do with me wanting to be manly, that is just stupid guys have emotions too, but the main reason is I don't want others to pity me or feel bad for me. I can get what I'm going through alone and if I'm going to break down, it means I want to be alone and not talk about it. If I want to talk about it, I will, normally I don't, I'm independent.

  • Never.

    I didn't even cry when that thing that gave birth to me died.

    She's still probably not out of her misery.

  • I'm more of a sensitive guy. I think it's OK to cry when the situation really calls for it like your feelings are hurt. I think most of the guys who say it's never OK to cry unless you're chopping onions are the same guys who beat their wives.

  • crying doesn't solve much but it helps feel better when f***ed up sad sh*t happens.

    i'd say a man can cry whenever the f*** he wants.

  • Are you legitimately serious?

    Are you questioning whether it's appropriate for men to undertake a natural physiological function?

    Of course it's appropriate.

    The standpoint you're coming from, it states that a man is not a man unless he is invulnerable and impenetrable.

    At the same time, a man does what he wants.

  • I can't help but cry when I see truly loving family moments. And I'm a pretty big guy...but can't help it. When you grow up yearning for it but never receive it, tears just start flowing when you see it.

  • Of course it is. Men are humans and have feelings too.

    • Forgot to add that they should be appropriate for them to cry when they feel they need an emotional release.

  • Eh. I'd say anytime it's actually appropriate for a girl to cry. During really emotional times.

    Not 'omg, I broke a nail' type emotions, but more 'someone just died', 'we just had a baby', 'I feel so betrayed' sort of thing..

  • ...When they're sad? :D

    I don't see a problem with men crying if something really bad happened, but it's honestly heartbreaking to hear them sob. :s
