    Not often. Usually it's over some stupid guy. It helps the feelings go away.

    I cry.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    It comes more easily than I'd like.

    Control over it came immediately when I noticed that it wasn't the big or important things that made me cry. When truly serious shit is going down, when it counts, I have greater calm. Crying is usually more a product of the stress or mood of a moment, or self-caused from denying the need for human contact for too long. I realized that it was rarely an expression of deep feeling for me, and became embarrassed of that - so today, every couple months or so?

    Like @Desiderium says, nature may play a part. This realization and the change that came with it happened about exactly when I got out of adolescence.

    Unexpectedly.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I only cry at brave men fighting impossible odds. I don't know what this means.

    9/10 purely out of frustration like a child, the times when I'm actually suppose to cry I don't

    While I feel like crying quite often, and have a lot of reasons to drift into despair, I resist the urge to weep my heart out like some emo freak or teenage girl puking for the first time. Further, when I hear another guy cry or say he did, I automatically think what a loser he is, that he must be gay and have no sack. So I don't want to be like that...I mean, who wants to become the very thing they despise? There is nothing at all wrong with being a passionate person, in fact I think it's a positive, but it sucks when there's a storm brewing inside you half the time and can't channel any of it...
    You're right. Emotions are so unmanly. Luckily, you've been able to hide this deeply feminine side of yourself so the world will acknowledge your sack.

    How do you complain about this emotional storm brewing inside of you with no way to channel it, then regurgitate all of the sexist nonsense that society indoctrinated you with in the first place? Talk about cognitive dissonance. In order to man up, you have to first acknowledge your own humanity, not deny it.

    Also, if you believe a guy who cries is gay, yet you admittedly repress the urge to cry, then what does that say about your sexuality?

    Not really; sometimes I can feel gut-punched with empathy, but I don't always cry. I cry at tragedies and during certain movies or TV shows dealing with painful subject material...but I can also cry during Disney cartoons, so there ya go. As for crying every day, no I don't. I don't even cry monthly. There has to be a specific catalyst that touches me on a deep level.
