You know the way tears are an excretionary mechanism for Nope Too Much Of That Emotion Let's Have Less Of It? No, they really are, maybe: emotional tears contain more misc hormonal wossnames. Have an art project!

YEP.

Very much related to the ways in which, for example, standard "western" male socialization fucks boys the hell up.

And, for that matter, our valourization of that socialization works its tendrils into fucking everyone up.

But seriously if I DO ever have a boy, EVERYONE will absolutely be getting the "if you tell my child anything that remotely smacks of 'big boys don't cry' etc I will actually eat your liver, I swear to fucking god" note. It may include actual useful ways to help a child learn to self-soothe! But try and shame the mechanism out and I will roast your vital organs on a slow fire. *growl*

Yeah, Andrew always tells me this when I am crying and upset about crying/feel I shouldn't be (like that helps, I know). It does help with the frustration I feel at it; I hate crying.

Well, that... potentially explains a lot!
