Old ideas like “large lads don’t cry” urge men and boys to repress their tears. Sobbing, on the other hand, can be therapeutic and beneficial for both men and women. In many cultures around the world, it is considered unpleasant for males to cry, especially in public. Many people still believe that guys are supposed to be emotionless and stoic. Many guys believe that crying is unacceptable as a result of this stigma. They may conceal their emotions by sobbing only in secret or not at all. Suppressing your emotions, especially crying, can be harmful to your health. People of all genders are affected by mental health stigma; nevertheless, males may be less likely than women to seek mental health care as a result of stigma. Men may also be more likely to commit suicide than women. Males are permitted to cry. Crying can be a healthy way to deal with emotions and has a number of emotional and physical benefits. Hiding your emotions can make dealing with them and seeking help more difficult. Male sobbing social attitudes vary by culture, but they have also changed over time. According to a 2015 Aeon article, history is littered with sobbing men. In fact, in some cases, crying was considered virtuous. Crying was associated with strength and morality in everyone from medieval knights to the troops in Homer’s “Iliad” to the samurai in the Japanese epic “The Tale of the Heike.” Prophets were frequently shown as weeping in important religious texts. It’s unknown what caused our attitudes of men sobbing to evolve. Stoicism, on the other hand, was and probably still is associated with masculinity, whilst crying and emotional weakness are associated with femininity. With the rise of fourth-wave feminism and increased discussion about toxic masculinity and mental health stigma, many people are beginning to believe that men should be allowed to cry. Increased mental health awareness has also facilitated this transition.
