Dude’s List: 11 Times It’s Cool for A Man to Cry
By The Dude
Alright, let’s dig into this stereotype that men don’t show their emotions as much as women. True? False. Men do. Men do in lots of ways. Just not always smart, rational, or legal ways (but why only condemn men for that, right?) One of the ways that men have been, in certain cases, brought up to believe is unacceptable is crying. My grandfather and my father both were instilled with the belief that crying doesn’t solve anything, therefore it serves no purpose. Now, that’s bullsh*t but unfortunately there is still some guys out there who have that kind of mentality. They can whine and yell and throw tantrums and complain and become utter stone faces under the sun but crying makes them look weak. Well, let me tell you all something, crying doesn’t make you weak and no matter how hard guys might try, there are certain times when all you can do is cry, cry, cry…
Alright, so I ended on a slightly more whimsical note. As always take the list as seriously as you choose to. But there’s no denying the fact that men do cry and men, I feel, in general should be more open to expressing their emotions through tears. It’s often a tremendous release to a lot of bottled up and overwhelming stress that we’ve got weighing us down. A healthy cry, amen to that. Now, when have you seen your BFs or BFFs start up their waterworks? What’d I miss on the list? Fire away down below!
That’s all the vampire information you need to know.
