my dad came home from work, and got a phone call from my grandmother telling him his cousin, 35, lost her battle with cancer. I feel horrible for him, since his father and her father hadnt spoken in 15 years, due to some petty grudge. it was really strange to witness someone cry who i've known to be pretty stoic my entire life. and it goes to show you that family grudges arent worth it.

well i guess to give this thread a point, have you ever seen your father cry?

When my grandfather died, He didnt cry but he did shed a few tears.

Only once when i was caught stealing. I haven't stolen anything since.


EDIT: Wait a sec. Thinking about it know it sounded really fake and insincere. I think i may have been tricked into lawfulness by my dad.

I don't think I've ever seen my dad cry. He's not one of those tough guys either. He's really nice to everyone and super funny. It would suck to see him cry

Only once, and it was a subtle one. He stood with his pride almost emotionless as a few tears rolled down his cheek. It was too sad.

I once ran into a mirror that I didn't know was there. I think you could say We were both suprised.

When my mother left him.


I honestly think it's bullshit that men are expected to not cry and all that. I hate most gender stereotypes. If I have kids, I hope I raise them as androgynous as possible.

You dont want your children to be over-sensitive though, They shouldnt cry about trivial things but death certainly isnt trivial, You need to find the right balance, I was a way over-sensitive kid and I used to cry when I was yelled at and everything it sucks now that I remember how I was.

I've never directly seen my dad cry.
When my grandfather was rushed to the hospital, dad caught the first plane to Moscow. He didn't make it in time. He called my mother and told her. I didn't hear him cry, but I knew he was. Even imagining it is kind of strange, but at the same time, very sad.

I've seen my dad cry, he has an unbelievably sad face when he cries, and something has to be very upsetting for him to cry over so usually I end up crying with him <.<

Let me get this straight. You're asking a bunch of people who are sitting at their computers, likely due to boredom, what to do for fun.

I have, when his father died.

It was pretty heart-wrenching to witness, actually. And I'm proud to say I managed to comfort him a bit, somehow. Still, quite a rather traumatizing experience. I had never seen my father cry before, ever.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

I was very sensitive as well. I was ridiculed because boys aren't supposed to be emotional. My dad looked almost ashamed of me at times. Eventually I followed suit and bottled in all my emotions and by the time I realized why it was wrong I was emotionally immature. I'm just now learning to express myself and if I really feel like shit, sometimes I'll cry just to do it because it lets it out.


I don't like any of the stereotypes, male or female.

I wasnt really ridiculed, My friends didnt make fun of me(Maybe just little jokes here and there) and my father was understanding cause I was the last son of 4 I was kind of spoiled.
But yes letting out your emotions is a good thing to do, But not too.

I think I have a memory long, long ago where I came home and my dad was crying at the kitchen table. That is all I remember though. I don't know why, and I don't know what happened after. I'm not sure if it was a dream or not, but it bothered me a lot at the time
