Or do they?
i can, often on request
What's he ever had to cry about eh?...
I was on my own having a doob and some wine and (now this is the embarrassing bit) watching field of dreams, and that bit right at the end when he asks his dad if he wants to play catch I lost it. While I do find that moment quite emotional (I can't help it) it was an accumulation of other things that had been going on that I hadn't allowed myself to cry for when they happened and something just clicked and I cried.
I cried watching Miracle on 34th Street once
Very undermining and terribly embarrassing. The death of a loved one is the only thing that a man may cry about. Girls, of course, cry about everything, from Jade Goody to monthly bleeding, but I should hope that chivalry, heroic masculinity, silent heroism, is not dead. It will be a sad day when men are as emotional as your average woman. The world will truly turn to shit.
and so should be frowned on, IMO.
also, i'm sure crying is a conscious decision
Unless one has dust, a bullet or, indeed, a pubic hair in the eye, tears are always optional, never compulsory.
i haven't cried since i was like 5, and i've had family members die and stuff. it's not like i'm a man of steel. i bet most boys don't cry
and once for 2 years non stop?
in the other - perhaps on a very very very very very very very very deep level, maybe
Strangely, not at my step-grandfather's funeral. How he held it together I'll never quite understand. I cry at the funerals of people I didn't even particularly like. Empathy for the immediate family I suppose.
I thought you meant the priest.
= lame (with the exception of funerals and stuff, i guess)
but occasional crying in general is VERY GOOD FOR THE EMOTIONAL HEALTH. i don't even care if it makes me a massive girl, anyone who never cries is emotionally stunted
i was painting my hallway listening to it and i couldnt stop meself. Like a fucking girl.
Other then that, last time was probably when i was 4 or 5.
as long as you're not doing it all the time and embarassing yourself/others, then it's perfectly fine.
I've been know to shed a few tears every now and again. I sometimes force a cry, in an effort to make myself feel better.
my eyes will well-up. But if a tear falls I immediately burn the dvd, replace it with How The West Was Won, and swallow liquid Drain-O as a stern reminder to never let it happen again.
if you do either without the appropriate genitalia then you've clearly got your chromosomes in a twist.
and then they should be uncontrollable and done in private respectively.
