It's pretty well known that Western society (especially American society) thinks men are losers if they cry. Every tear we shed is testosterone leaking from our bodies. However, there are times that when a man cries, it's actually caused by a buildup of concentrated testosterone. That said, share with us a time in your life when:
1) You think you cried manly tears (automatic best answer if I shed a manly tear too)
2) A time when you cried and maybe felt a little ashamed (bonus points if it's actually embarrassing)
Girls can answer too, of course. You just cry more because you don't need as much testosterone as us guys.

Lol, western thinking and philosophy can be so weird sometimes. Crying is a normal human trait that occurs at great sadness, happiness or pain (bodily or mentally).
I cried for weeks when my dad died, I was 15 at the time.
I cried when my family had problems with my wife and I about our relationship I was 25
I cried when my dog died, I was 27, had that dog for 17 years.
I cried when my daughter was born that was 4 months ago.
I have also cried at countless of emotional movies like 'Life is Beautiful and the Notebook" so sue me.
I don't mind if people see me cry, I'm emotional at that moment and I don't keep my feelings locked up in me, that'll just eat away at my core and leave me feel depressed and alone.
After I cry, I usually feel way better and happy afterward, with a sense of relief.5
