I had the idea that the belief "men don't cry" is a carefully planned action. A conspiracy if you like. By teaching boys to castrate their sensitivity, to become a stronger sex, society provides itself with a stable economy. Will explain. A sober mind, cold calculation, atrophied experiences allow men to be effective in business and in war. Starting with the organization of international conflicts, ending with the dismissal of employees at work. Even the average sales manager should remain functional every time he is answered on the phone a hundred times - no! And what about the male function, which the same society identifies as a protector, a breadwinner? This is also not for the faint of heart. I know of few professions where a man can legally cry. For example, an actor or a psychotherapist. But such men earn, let's say, not very much. More often I notice that men still began to allow themselves tears. The world is changing and its foundations too.

It's actually as easy for a man to cry as it is for a girl, but due to upbringing and imposed behavioral patterns, guys cry much less often. From childhood, we are taught to hide and suppress feelings, accustoming us to the image of a "real man"

Because of such upbringing, in addition to expressing negative emotions, a sense of humor and understanding of the experiences of other people also suffer, which I often observe with friends and just peers.

The thing is that men are taught from childhood to follow the tyzhemuzhik's gender role. “Well, stop whining, you’re a boy” - this or something like that was heard in childhood by almost everyone.
And in general, men are taught to hide feelings and emotions behind a mask of seriousness. After all, it is only girls who are supposed to show emotions and feelings. The society supports all these delusions and from year to year boys are taught to suppress their emotions. But still everything may depend on education. Some are brought up without prejudice, while others are taught from childhood to the role of a mythical 'real man'. This even happens to girls.
