    After watching McGwire's testimony before Congress, I was just wondering what was the tipping point where it is now acceptable for men to cry? I really haven't heard anybody make fun of McGwire.

    Whatever happened to that stoic image of men refusing to cry?

    I think a man can cry. and at the right times, it can be benefitial....why is it so unacceptable, is a man not allowed to express emotion, I think a man who cries and shows in public the side of himself that cares and is compasionate, no matter what the subject, is a true man.

    I don't have a problem with a man crying - I find it unasthetic for a man to cry in such a public situation, and over something like that.

    Allegations that he had lapsed into tears when defending his wife to the press doomed Sen. Edmund Muskie's presidential ambitions in the 1972 N.H. (Democratic) primary. Twenty-four years later, the Republican Bob Dole occasionally cried on the campaign trail (when recounting his World War II experiences), with no discernible detriment to his viability as a presidential candidate, eventually securing the 1996 G.O.P. nomination.

    And yet they say there's still no crying in baseball.
