Old ideas like “large males don’t cry” encourage men and boys to keep their emotions hidden. Sobbing, on the other hand, can be therapeutic and beneficial for both men and women. Crying by men is frowned upon in many cultures across the world, especially in public. Many people still believe guys are supposed to be emotionless and stoic. Because of this stigma, many men believe that crying is inappropriate. They may try to conceal their emotions by crying quietly or not at all. Suppressing your emotions, especially weeping, is hazardous for your health. Although both men and women are affected by mental health stigma, males may be less likely than females to seek mental health treatment as a result of stigma. Suicide may be more common in males than in women. Males are allowed to cry. Crying is a healthy way to deal with emotions that offers emotional as well as physical benefits. Hiding your feelings makes dealing with them and seeking assistance more difficult. Male crying is viewed differently in different countries, although it has developed with time. According to a 2015 Aeon piece, history is littered with sobbing guys. In certain cases, crying was even deemed beneficial. Crying was associated with strength and morality, from medieval knights to the troops in Homer’s “Iliad” to the samurai in the Japanese epic “The Tale of the Heike.” Prophets are frequently pictured as weeping in important religious texts. It’s unclear what led our attitudes regarding men sobbing to shift. Stoicism, on the other hand, is traditionally associated with masculinity, whilst tears and emotional weakness are often associated with femininity. Because of the rise of fourth-wave feminism and more discussion about toxic masculinity and mental health stigma, many individuals are beginning to believe that men should be allowed to cry. Increased mental health awareness has also facilitated this transition.
