Almost every girl in that thread has cried at least once in the last 24 hrs. Why do you cry so much , girls? And most of the time it's out of the blue for no reason. Very awkward for guys who are around you at the time since they can't identify at all. Can you explain it? Because this is what guys are thinking:

well that part of women's brain is more developed than men's.


Same with Men for spacial awareness.


Can't remember the names of those parts of the brain though.

Since when did the "women" of TSR reflect the norm in the population?

Biological set-up and also, social norms. Men and boys who cry can get made fun of pretty easily

Because we're always telling men they aren't allowed to cry

I don't know. I had a different upbringing to most western girls and I used to think that it was because they were more spoiled lol... but then I went on the pill and I seemed to cry about everything too... I didn't even feel any more sad than I did before, just felt like crying at a smaller whim.

& as soon as I went off the pill, it stopped again.

I don't think I can explain it in any more detail than "it's hormonal".

Men usually repress their emotions because of social conventions. I sometimes really really want to smile and be playful with someone, or cry on their shoulders but I feel agitated in case I break the 'rules'.

Interestingly, both genders cry the same amount up until puberty. From then on, women cry on average four times more often than men, and for longer.

That would suggest the difference is hormonal.

I grew up in a culture where men often kiss when greeting each other and can cry without any shame. Women still cry 10 times more. How come?

Yeah it's really odd. Women are just very moody and hysterical.

As a kid I never associated crying with being ''a girl thing''. I remember falling off my bike , hurting myself and getting ready to cry as I usually would but I simply didn't. I just thought to myself what's the point? It was really weird. I didn't feel the need to. Rarely ever cried from then on.

Have you had the crying after sex thing? That's probably the most ****ed up type of crying. Da***, man, da***?

I reached a point about aged 11/12 when I just stopped crying much. I got angry instead.

Also recently I went through a pretty bad break-up, and didn't cry at all. It was bizarre.
