I don't cry easily, I never liked to let people know that the got to me...I am a minister and I have seen a lot of people Die ..done a lot of funerals. Someone has to maintain and take care of business if you would. There is a time to Cry and a time not too..I am in touch with my "INNER CHILD" He dosen't cry either...Suck it up and die of a stroke like a man...I'm kidding probably... there is a time and place for everything.
What is the opposite of "strength in numbers"? Never underestimate the pitifulness of pathetic men in large groups, I suppose. Then again -- this leaves less competition for men with the gift of backbone.
Very, very well spoken Jack

Weakness en masse?
Ah the pendulum is swinging the other way. First we must be stoic, now we must be weepy.
Sounds like another way to find a stress release so some sort. Some go running, I suppose, some now weep.
Now to say that I'm not healthy if I don't sit and have a good weep as my chosen form of stress release would be poor.
I think that's something that makes me very old-fashioned : I believe that, as a man, you're not supposed to show your emotions, period. You have to be there in times of depression to help people around you, and that's why you have to be the strong one. I think you should cry in private and that's it.
I understand what they mean by being emotionally disconnected, and I agree with it to a certain extent. I think not crying, and choosing to not show your emotions builds a fence inside you, and in the end, you're less connected to your own emotions -not disconnected completely, but less . But is it really a bad thing ? Do we want men that are very emotional all the time ?
