no its just a way of expressing how you feel and technically everything is a sign of strength and weakness depending on how you look at it


~Yup! Crying can mean that you are weak but can also mean that you are strong. For example: You have a really messed up problem that you can't solve even with the help from your friends.Now that's being weak. Now someone is bullying you then you suddenly break down in tears but you stand up and fight him/her to defend yourself. Now that's being strong.

Why? and don't give me an opinion, I prefer an argument with sources to back it up or at least premises that follow a conclusion.


Easy, though there ain't much research to cite.

There is experience though, crying in front of others shows a lack of emotional control, I cried when I was young, and it just made other kids believe they could beat the crap out of me(if you can't dominate your emotions then you certaintly can't do so in a fight), Whenever one of the female members of my family see a man cry they say, "what a faggot", they don't go around saying how sensitive or in touch they are with their emotions they are

As a person who avoids exhibiting weaknesses of any kind
I haven't cried since I was 8

I don't think it is a sign of weakness at all. It's a way to release your emotions without hurting anyone. Well, at least it is in my opinion. I think it's better for me to cry than bottle up all my feelings inside without finding an exit for them. There's only so much you can hold inside before you break down.

~Emotional control eh! Well can you be emotional when you're still a kid? I don't think so because children just enjoy life like me without being so emotional.

crying is a weakness? I don't know about that. It's more of a weapon. It has the opposite effect on me. I can't really stand someone crying. It make me feel weak. >_>;
<-- don't look at me with this face. I am weak against it.

NOT crying is a sign of weakness.
Crying is actually a sign of strength.
Just so long as you don't cry too much, and not in front of people.
Y'know?
I hear people say "Real men cry!"
That applies to women as well.
Get my drift?

Crying IS a weakness,because it means breaking down and letting your emotions take over you Besides,crying is absolutely pointless,it doesn't make your problems disappear! Crying in public is just embarassing,it shows people your weakness and unability to control your emotions/deal with your pain.

Some people see crying as a weakness, but I see it as a relief of tension. If you keep it all bottled up inside, you will soon become extremely depressed. Some people relieve this tension with crying, but others slit their wrists (I don't recommend this way, though.), write poetry, scream their lungs out at someone/something, etc. Either way, crying doesn't make you any less of a person.

Sometimes, actually, your body forces you to cry because your eyes need the moisture. In that case, it is essential for you to 'cry'. Without tear ducts, our eyes would dry out and we wouldn't be able to see anymore.

Also, crying may occur when you are extremely happy. Whatever your reason for crying, it matters not. Crying just shows that we are human and have feelings. If you don't cry, neither in public or in private, then you just appear to be heartless or cruel. I for one would comfort someone that is crying near me... not laugh or shake my head at them. That is cruel and vicious.
