how can u say this rukhsana ji, but since u have asked the ques. my reply is that men shed tears easily too but women cry easily becoz by nature they r more emotional and sentimental than men. most of the time they r supressed too both at home at work and when they get married at husband's place this makes them vernarable toemotions and when they see a situation similar to theirs or a let out they cry to lighten the heart. at other times they cry when situations go out of hands and they r pushed against the wll. but beliv me not all women are emotional taps they r strongand can face situations fiercely. but on the whole the felame species r much more stronger than their male artners , have u herd a woman getting a heart attach becoz her love left her or if fired from work they sulk 4 sometime then get ok but men they go into depression get hi BP etc. etc. but i will still feel women r the stronger species

women have a greater propensity to cry (Lombardo, Crester, Lombardo & Mathis, 1983; Williams & Morris, 1996), cry more often (Frey 1983; Ross & Mirowsky, 1984; Williams & Morris, 1996) and also experience more intense crying (Bindra, 1972; Williams, 1982; Lombardo, Crester, Lombardo & Mathis 1983; Williams and Morris, 1996) than their male counterparts. Michael Gurian (2003) proposed that, on average, womens tear glands are 60% larger than mens. One evolutionary explanation for male and female differences in crying (Pease & Pease, 2002) is that if a man demonstrates emotions around other men, they would appear weak and become an easy target for others to attack him. Thus, men are rarely seen crying in public. On the contrary, women showing emotion to others, particularly other women, is seen as a sign of trust.

Both of the genders has same feelings and emotions. but women are more sensitive by heart. They cant hide what they feel, where men's thought is that tears will show their weekness.
