A crying woman gets sympathy where as a man crying is ridiculed upon. Why is that?
Crying woman.... draws sympathy. Right from our chilhood we have always a very soft corner for a woman... a sister, a mother....we are always more protective for them, at times we even refer them as a weaker sex... in a woman we easily see the reflection of our mother, a sister... and our sympathy just flows when we see them in distress.
A man crying.... don't we say him to be a woman...we ridicule him, because a man is naturally stronger in all terms than a woman... we naturally expect him to behave like a man...
But, it is a poor form to ridicule anyone who is in distress or in tears.
U r ridiculed for breaking down in public, because, in India, men r decision makers. If u r seen breaking down ppl question u r ability to make decisions! So breaking down in a public view is NOT an option.
Men DO break down though, because even the world's toughest metal melts if u apply enough pressure to it. But traditionally, and even today, men who face breakdown situation often would always take in a single, private source to break down on who r mutually comfortable w/ each other and trust.
Many times, salaried folk have a tendency to say "man can never break" - I DO AGREE- but in a self employment field- it is just not possible in India or in any country 4 that matter lol. It is a bit hard on ANY tough man, ...more
