Life Re: And What is This?
Hey Charles, what about gay men? Are they allowed to cry?
I had no idea what was making him cry, but no matter what the cause—a scolding from mommy, the death of his furry pet, humiliation from an older brother—nothing is bad enough, worthy enough for a young (or old) man (and I only speak for men) to cry about.
And what about butch lesbians? Or transgendered people? Your rule against male tears relies on a pretty out-dated conception of gender, and gender-roles.
