Dude’s List: 11 Times It’s Cool for A Man to Cry

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.

    Moms or Dads or Love one passes away, Yeah, Birth of you child,, ok. EVERYTHING ELSE IS LAME,,, Your girlfriend leaves you and you cry??? WTF Why would you waste your tears on someone that is leaving you. On your wedding day? uhhh no. Dog dies,,, uhhh no,,,,, And the blonde chick?? Who??? Never cry in the face of death,, Someone already has got power over you and you are going to cry and beg like a little b*tch? I would and have spit in the face of someone with a gun to my face, And you going to give that scumbag the last laugh to tell people "Yeah he was crying begging like a b*tch so I had to put him out of his misery. Or he laughed at me and we wrestled for the gun. This list is lame

      If someone points a gun to your head and you are moments away from death, I highly doubt you are going to act all tough and macho.

    I confess that I'm a girl, not a guy, so I don't have an insider's perspective. Still, I think you should add watching Marley and Me to the list. I'm pretty sure 90 percent of the theater, male and female, was crying when I went to see it.

  6. Maura - Rider University says:

    A lot of girls will tell you that it's pretty sexy when a guy cries…for the right reasons. It shows that he has a sensitive side and really cares about something. Seeing a guy cry over me only makes me think he really cares about us and values our relationship.

    And I almost lost it in the theaters watching Up, thank god my 3D glasses could hide my tears from the six year olds who would've mocked me to no end.

  7. Reality says:

    Only the first ten minutes of Up? I cried through the entire movie. And my boyfriend laughed at me the ENTIRE time, lmao.

    But kudos to you, Dude, for mentioning Up. :D
