There are some patriarch-centric cultures which perpetuate the idea that crying is not "manly". But crying has numerous nuances in every society. But a "sin"? Thou shalt not cry??? Hmmm. Crying is like laughing - they both have psychological and physiological benefits. Crying cleanses. If it is a "sin" - disobedience to God - then
I for one have got a whole heck of a lot of forgiveness to ask for!

Crying, when used for manipulation such as invoking pity from others and self pity make it sinful.  Use your head. By's!

It depends on your religion. In my religion, crying may be a quite normal emotional response, a manipulation, an embarrassment, or self-indulgence, but not a sin.

Crying is acceptable when one sticks a vinegar covered rusty nail in their eye and at no other time. The bible was edited to remove this as being the true cause of Jesus's blubbering.sorry was this a serious question? Indeed, is this a question?
